i was sitting back reflecting, and these two movies came to mind... the believers (actually watching that one right now!), and the changling (george c. scott). i remember the first time i saw those they scared the poo out of me. now the changling makes me laugh (especially with the wheel chair chasing the gf around the house), but the believers def still has the creep factor.
okay just reminiscing (pardon the spelling)!

I remember being terrorized by a movie about creatures that suck the bones out of people. These creatures could climb walls to get in through windows. They were cheesy-looking, like a big dark lump with spaghetting tendrils on which they slithered around. They had a snake-like neck and head that they used to break windows. I was frightened for months and slept with the light on, eyes fixed on the window.
Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passersby, and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it, but the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the Earth endures, the Earth is eternal" - Earl Hamner

I think that movie is hilarious. scared the **** out of me when i saw it in elementry school. i LOVE the older horror movies... they just don't make them like they used to. they need to stop remaking them, the remakes usually suck. except for the fog remake, but i think that's because the whole reason for the lepers coming into the bay was totally different. the fact that a total hunk was in it doesn't hurt either... mmmmm chad micheal murray!

I was thoroughly creeped out by the Changling. I haven't seen it since I was a kid. Was the Believers the one with Martin Sheen? That one was weird. Does anyone remember the movie The Serpent and the Rainbow with Bill Pullman? Or how about the movie Burnt Offerings? Man that freaked me out when I watched it way back when.

i remember burnt offerings... i actually just saw that not too long ago. that one was kinda creepy, but it was kinda hard to uderstand what was going on, between the glare from the sun, and my mom vacuuming in the background. the believers is with martin sheen... honey, i did it for us. creepy!

I hadn't thought of "The Changling" in years! I wasn't scared by it, but at the time thought it was pretty creepy. I don't remember "Burnt Offerings" at all. I do remember seeing the "Dark Shadows" movies in the theater - they were pretty good too, but I have a feeling that if I were to see them now, would be pretty disappointed/bored.

The Changeling is an excellent movie! It scared the bejeebus out of me when I was a kid too. I think a few other horror movies have borrowed from it too. For instance The Ring/Ringu - the bones found in the well under a house. And there was an episode in the second season of Cold Case where a father had killed off a weak son to replace him with a healthy heir.

I won't say any more for those who haven't seen it! Netflix keeps it stocked, you guys should check it out.

Island Of Terror / 1967 :weeee:
A small island community is overrun with creeping, blobbish, tentacled monsters which liquefy and digest the bones from living creatures. The community struggles to fight back.
I love this movie because Peter Cushing stars in it. ;)
