The Tingler (1959)

Ladies & Gentlemen, Please do not Panic, but Scream! Scream for your life!...whoever saw this movie in the theater surely have an experience of their lifetime that holds an enormous cinematic pleasure to always remember. I wish I was there to see the facial expression and behavior of the real audiences when Dr. Warren telling them in the dark to scream in the movie theater to save their lives. I have read in some reviews that they even placed a device, the "Percepto", installed inside the cinema armchairs for vibration so that, when the audience shouts during the movie, they felt a shock! Wow!
The film contains a beautiful, intelligent & original storyline and maintains a continuously tense atmosphere where Vincent Price's flawless & lovely performance added the value that made it an instant cult classic!

Attack of the Giant Leeches was on last night. The original 1950's one. That was followed up by a 30 minute television episode of something called "The Veil" with Boris Karloff. Apparenlty he did 10 episodes of this show in 1958 and it never aired on tv. Too bad, it's better than the zone.

I just picked up a 20 movie pack titled Chilling for $6.99 at Shopko!! It features Jack Nicholson in The Terror '63, Vincent price in The Man on Earth , James Earl Jones in Blood Tide, and of course 17 more. Super awesome cheep find, it even has House on Haunted Hill '59, Little Shop of Horrors with Jack Nicholson '60 and my all time fav Night of the Living Dead.
Last night I watched The Terror, maybe it was good in the sixties, but I found it pretty dull and talked through the whole thing. It was about a 19th century military officer chasing around a sexy ghost. Decent plot, I may even give it another chance if my cable ever gets shut off.

See, you have to know the backstory of The Terror to appreciate it. Corman had 2 days left on a contract with Karloff and instead of just letting that go like any sane person, he said "I've got Karloff for 2 days- I'll make ANOTHER movie!" So a basic script was thrown together, dialogue was shot with Karloff and Nicholson and a few other actors. It all sat in the can for six months when Corman shot some exteriors to cover what was needed, and it was all assembled out of what was onhand. The six month wait made it the longest Corman shoot ever. Really a fun little film showing what Corman could come up with out of nothing.

"Dracula, Prince Of Darkness" (1966)
-Christopher Lee



I've always liked this movie, even though I find it funny that Lee has no dialog. Like most of the Hammer Films, this movie is full of atmosphere, great costumes and sets.

"Curse Of The Undead" (1959)
- Micheal Pate

Plot Synopsis: IMDB



The cinema's first vampire Western! Young women in a small Western town are dying one by one of an unknown malady involving massive blood loss. The Carter family's ranch is being terrorized by ruthless land baron Buffer. And a mysterious black-clad gunfighter with an aversion to sunlight has just arrived in town

Phantom's Review: I've always been a fan of both westerns and horror movies, (especially the classic black and white movies)and on those rare occasions that someone tries to combine the two always interests me.
While this is basically a standard "B" movie. It has some very nice performances from the actors and it maintains, both, a great horror atmosphere (with some cool spooky music)and some classic western action.
If you don't take it to seriously, this is a fun movie.
