It's still up there, so I guess I know what I'm watching this weekend (on top of all the shit I already have to watch).

Pharaoh's Curse (1957)

Saw it suggested on the sidebar while watching another flick on YouTube, decided to check it out. Two uploads of it, so I went with the longer (1h22m) and got a bizarre version: there's an obvious portion missing and then the remainder of the film has the audio skipped forward so that it's several seconds ahead of what you're seeing. Go with the 1h5m version if you want to see this.

Plot is that British soldiers are under attack from outraged locals over a dig, and the latest trip out there runs into unusual problems (supplies vanishing, a woman insisting they need to turn back, an unknown age-advancing illness plaguing a man). Turns out the tomb is cursed and the illness is turning the affected man into a living mummy who needs to drain the blood of the living to go on at all (so basically Dracula and Imhotep had a kid).

Even if watching the better upload, I can't say this is anything special. It is incredibly by-the-numbers, not terrible but not worth spending much effort on. Easy pass.

^I've seen that and was also unimpressed, though not so much that I couldn't finish it or anything.

Witchfinder General (1968)

"May God have mercy on us all."

A corrupt witch-hunter (Vincent Price) and his sadistic assistant travel the English countryside during the civil war of Oliver Cromwell, executing people accused of consorting with the Devil and earning ill pay. They cross a line when they hang a priest and sexually abuse his niece, earning the wrath of a Roundhead soldier (Ian Ogilvy) as he attempts to hunt them down and make them pay.

I gotta say, the location shots (especially the wide-open country) are gorgeous. You also get the period costumes, which are pretty well done and don't look especially ridiculous (I have never liked those big frill rings that the upper classes wore around their necks, like white straw hats pushed too far down).

While Ogilvy is great as the dashing protagonist driven to revenge, and Price and Robert Russell (Stearne) are positively chilling as ruthless sadists, I think the real star is the atmosphere. You get this dark, bloody story of lies, murder, desperate hope, and violent revenge, and it has some serious historical precedence. The ending was entirely appropriate, and exactly the spot I pulled the quote from; nothing sums up the grimdark like that sentence.

A chilling and morbid tale, but absolutely worth seeing.

That IS a good one. I actually saw it on blu-ray at the convention I just got back from and considered it, but it didn't quite make the cut. There were just too many good movies to get all I wanted.

The Mummy (1959)

"Seems I've spent the better part of my life amongst the dead."

At long last, I watch for the second time the first Mummy film that I ever saw. I caught this on TV as a kid, and it's still pretty enjoyable now that I'm an adult.

I like that Hammer chose the story of Kharis and Ananka over Imhotep because it gives those characters a chance to be refreshed and improved, rather than left to wallow in a series of increasingly-weak sequels. Those characters didn't get the worst treatment, but they deserved better than the dragged-out rehashing Universal gave them.

Anyway, Hammer takes things back to the mystique-laden 1890s, specifically 1895, and has yet another fez-wearing-priest-of-Karnak-named-Bey (played by George Pastell) warn two archeologists (Felix Aylmer and Raymond Huntley) that they'll die if they break into the tomb of Princess Yvonne Furneaux -- I mean, Princess Ananka. As usual. I can't help but feel that Hammer (specifically Jimmy Sangster, who did the screenplay) missed a chance to have a great argument between Aylmer and Pastell about the difference between graverobbing for the sake of personal gain and gravesite unearthing for the sake of historical preservation, but c'est-le vie.

Gotta love the sand-pressure traps in those old tombs, and when Aylmer removes the Scroll of Life, I had a flashback to Valley of the Pharaohs.

I'm kind of conflicted about Peter Cushing with not-old-man hair color, playing Aylmer's son. I mean, with dyed hair, it at least looks plausible, but the dude is still visibly old enough to be his brother instead of his progeny (then again, the English did marry 13-year-old girls to 40-year-old men in some cases). As is often for him, Cushing does a solid job overall, and I have to say I was surprised when he rolled over the desk and did a leaping impalement of Lee.

I also (somewhat) enjoyed his banter with Pastell over the nature of buried persons being dug up and religion in general, though I honestly feel like the argument was hamstrung specifically because Cushing's character goes there to bait Pastell's character, and that he does not himself believe half of what he's saying.

Lee was great as Kharis/The Mummy. He's this huge, unrelenting force, but he isn't indestructible: contrary to earlier films, he's somewhat vulnerable to bullets, because he can't regenerate. Very ancient and monolithic. And as Kharis, well, he had more limited screentime but he still did a decent job during the flashbacks.

One thing I noticed was that of the two drunk workers who drove the wagon, one of them was absolutely the same guy who says "Strange business" to Dr. Edelmann in House of Dracula (it's either Harold Goodwin or Denis Shaw, but IMDB comes up short on giving accurate enough credit to tell).

Seeing this reminds me I need to start building a proper Hammer collection. Next us is Mummy's Shroud, I think.

Too bad they're a b***h to collect. There's several collected editions of the DVDs, but with no logical grouping (thematically* or chronologically). I'd have finished up the Dracula movies (and probably Frankenstein and the Mummy too) if they just released them in sets like Universal.



*There is, iirc, one Dracula set of 4, but it's not the whole series and I think there's overlap with at least one other box set.

The Mummy's Shroud (1967)

"Only he who holds the shroud can speak the words of death!"

I was rather looking forward to this, because it's one of the last Mummy films I'm interested in seeing (I don't intend to watch all of the Hammer Mummy line, even if there aren't that many of them). In comparison to the Cushing/Lee version, this feels a little underwhelming.

I did like the backstory involving Prem and Kah-to-Bey, that was pretty good. The douchebag financier (John Phillips) was fairly well acted, but his eyes were weird as hell, always one eyebrow raised and the other squinting, it became an amusement and a distraction. He also got the same death as that one dude in Friday the 13th Part III, and it's funny I should mention that, because the archeologists in the beginning mention they set out on that same date for the dig.

Michael Ripper was completely different than I was used to seeing him. Before I always saw him as a regular joe character, but here he's bookish and mousey. He does get a hella-brutal death though, and right after straight-up comic relief happens to him.

Claire (Maggie Kimberly) was a weird character. She has this premonition sense that guides the party, but she isn't a reincarnation of any Ancient Egyptian character (which precludes her from the oft-used romancing-the-Mummy plot device).

On Claire's note, I find it kind of weird that the kill-happy fortune teller (Catherine Lacey) would just abruptly help her. Yeah, she gives her the card in the hotel, but I assumed that was to lure her in like she did with Andre Morell (the janitor finding his body was another funny-yet-scary moment). There's no real explanation for her suddenly betraying her murderous son-partner, she just goes from laughing her ass off as a crippled old man gets murdered right in front of her to telling a target on her hit-list how to escape certain death.

I did get a laugh out of the inspector (Richard Warner) just shooting the villain Hasmid (Roger Delgado). Such a no-nonsense approach.

The death scene for the Mummy Prem (Dickie Owen as Prem, Eddie Powell as the Mummy) was perhaps the best the character has ever had, no joke. Those were some brilliant effects designs, and I'm sure audiences were bowled over watching it for the first time on the big screen.

Overall worth checking out, but definitely not the most cohesive of the lot.

Them! was an outstanding movie. I had a link to it posted in the Videos forum a while back.

I mentioned in that thread that Walt Disney went to see Them! because he was thinking of casting James Arness as the star of his Davy Crockett mini-series, but he spotted Fess Parker in the movie and decided to cast him instead. The role of Davy Crockett made Parker a star, but Arness got a pretty fair consolation prize by getting the lead in Gunsmoke. I'm sure Parker would have loved to trade places with him. Especially since he disclosed years later that Walt never paid him more than $500 a week, which even in the 1950s was a poor salary for a television and movie star.

The Black Scorpion (1957)

"I'm a stowaway!"

Significant volcanic activity in Mexico causes gigantic scorpions to come up from underground caverns and attack ranches. Sealing the crevasse only delays the inevitable climactic battle when the largest scorpion attacks Mexico City.

Not as good as Them!, but still better than expected (and I'm pretty sure it's better than Monster from Green Hell, which I've yet to watch and have on the same disc). The acting is fairly good, you get some decent scenic shots (including some nice architecture at the end), and the stop-motion animation is actually very impressive, with the scorpion's initial attack grabbing a man as he scrambles up a telephone pole, very reminiscent of some of the stuff from King Kong. Later on you even get fights between the scorpions, which only serves to further highlight the animation skills. We also get that great shot of the destroyed patrol car, with the front all ripped open, a pretty good homage to Them!.

While the romantic subplot is expected (gotta let the man take charge, and he needs a woman at his side, of course), it's a little less dated, at least at first. Mara Corday (of Tarantula fame) has a strong presence initially and holds up well enough as the story continues. We also get Carlos Rivas as a strong secondary character (I liked his joke about his dad's marital advice near the end of the film, that was a good character moment).

Overall worth checking out.

There's a good reason. Willis O'Brien did the stop motion. His final movie actually. The story's mediocre in Scorpion, as you basically say, but the monster stuff is great.

Willis O'Brien was amazing. How many film makers did he inspire with his work?

Yeah, I forgot to mention him, but I knew his name was familiar.

I also forgot to mention how god-awful the scorpions' face(s) looked during the close-ups. I guess they wanted to give it a more "humanly demonic" look or something because even grown to enormous size, they wouldn't resemble that (and the drool was just silly).

Probably more than we can guess. There's the obvious thing of the many, many spfx guys who went into the business because of O'Brien,* the people who probably didn't even know his name but were sparked by Kong, and then there's the second-hand effect like the many, many who went into it because of Harryhausen who idolized and apprenticed under O'Brien.

*When I met Tom Sullivan, who did the spfx for Evil Dead, we got to chat and despite the fact he would've been a young child when O'Brien died, he whole-heartedly admitted that he wanted to go into movies because of the stop-motion Kong. Who would guess that?

Yeah, there are multiple spfx credits on that film. I don't know for sure, but I'd be willing to bet that O'Brien did not do those close-up models. They're not even on the same general level.

Yeah, at the first Monster Mania I went to. He was real personable, even chatty. He signed my Evil Dead DVD (the OOP Book-of-the-Dead edition) and a mini-poster of weapon designs and each time drew something different on them.
I think because we talked about something other than ED (or because I was a in a wheelchair) he even remembered me later in the con and we chatted again (about The Ring, IIRC) while waiting for the room to clear for his talk.

Watching Monster from Green Hell (1957) right now, about giant wasps attacking various animals and villages in Africa. The shot they show of the one wasp looming over a hillside like Godzilla in the '54 original is so stupidly amusing, the thing is like the size of the New York Public Library.

It does have some good dialog at points, though, a lot of the older stuff actually has some good exchanges either as character moments or when they're trying to make an argument in favor of a particular point.

edit -- the wasps have nose hairs.

Writers Louis Vittes and Endre Bohem were two of the main people responsible for the Rawhide television series.

Per IMDB, Vittes wrote 30 episodes of the show, and Bohem produced 65 episodes and was the story consultant for 81.

Fun fact: Barbara Turner, who plays female love interest Lorna, looks like a clone of a young woman I work with, but without a gap in her teeth.


edit --- finished watching the film. I like that they use extra-powerful grenades to try and kill the wasps, but as per The Black Scorpion, everything except the film ending is useless against the colossal terrors. I rolled my eyes at the volcano becoming active and smothering the swarm in lava, because these flicks usually have some man-made weapon or act bring down the giant beasts and this feels like a mere act of convenient timing.

So, this is a mini-essay based on some ideas I've been kicking around for a year or two and shared on Classic Horror Forums (plus with some B-movie fan friends).


Today, Ed Wood’s magnum opus, Plan 9 from Outer Space turns 60. While many aspects of this film have been discussed in depth, this author has found a surprising lack of speculation on a rather obvious point. Since Seinfeld first joked about how bad the actual plan from Plan 9 (see below) is, several others (like Mike Nelson in his commentary to the 2006 colorization release) have jokingly referred to how bad the previous eight plans must be.

The aliens’ stated objective (near the end of the film) is to prevent humankind from developing a Solaronite bomb that could explode sunlight particles with potentially disastrous cosmic consequences. Like its sci-fi predecessor, The Day the Earth Stood Still, then, Eros’ planet’s goal is to prevent Earth from becoming a galactic threat. To that end, the nine plans could be taken as separate attempts to achieve that goal or as escalating steps in a master plan. This author believes that at least four such plans are explicitly shown or stated and an additional two could be implied by the dialogue. Two other plans seem to be unstated in the film. So, what do we know they tried?

1. Fly overs—what Spielberg would later call close encounters of the first kind (this failed because it is covered up by the government and military as stated by pilot Jeff Trent, Col. Edwards, Gen. Roberts and space commander Eros).
2. Direct Communication (this failed, according to Gen. Roberts, because of human inability to understand galactic languages).
3. Translated Communication—The US government developed a language computer to interpret alien signals and Eros acknowledges they have one—a dictorobitary—too (this failed partly due to interruption of signal by “atmospheric conditions in space” [sic] and mostly because of continued cover-ups). Note: this could be part of plan 2.
4. Destruction of a small town as an example of power as stated by Col. Edwards (this failed because of the continued cover-up and Col. Edwards’ decision to return hostility for all further UFO sightings). Note: there is a contradiction in that Col. Edwards claims the aliens shot first and Eros claims humans did. This could be a plot hole or a reflection of how warring parties tell different stories.
5. ?
6. ?
7. Attempt to directly control the living human population. This is implied by Eros’ comment that human souls are too strong and thinking beings can resist the electrodes’ influence (that would also be the reason it failed). Eros’ people would try this because they are themselves less individualistic and free willed.
8. Attempt to directly control the long dead. This is not stated and is only conjecture, but it is specifically called out that the electrodes only work on the recent dead and experiments were centered on a graveyard. It is also a logical assumption based on Eros’ theory of human fears of the dead. (This failed because of a weakness in the electrodes’ power.)
9. Raise and control the recent dead—using long-distance electrodes shot into pineal and pituitary glands—to scare earth into submission by marching undeniable masses of them on world capitals. This plan was working to an extent until a direct conflict with Trent and others lead to the destruction of Eros’ ship.

We should note two more things:

(A) The assumption of those who have considered or mocked these plans has been that Eros and Tanna are just going through them in numerical order and must have failed eight times. Not only is this not required by the movie’s plot, it may be contradicted. When Eros and Tanna report to the Ruler of the space armada he asks what plan they will follow next. Had they been following numbered steps, there would be little reason to ask the question. The very enquiry (and the fact that the ruler has to consult his list) implies the numbered plans are not an ordered step-by-step list, but a list of options they could take. In other words, Eros could have just as easily said plan 2, 7, or 578 without having tried all the previous plans.

(B) No alien said this was the last plan and the Ruler is still alive with the mother ship and most of the armada intact. What will “his excellency’s” response be? Are we safe? Can your heart withstand plan 10 from outer space?
