Does anybody remember The Legend of Hell House? Is it as good as I remember? I bet I haven't seen it in twenty or more years.

With Roddy McDowell? If so, is awesome. I get all the variants/sequels/remakes confused.

Yes, that one. Maybe I'll have to check it out again...assuming I can find it around here, of course.

Don't know if its been mentioned but I thought 'Little Ashes' was a great movie.

John Sayles' Return of the Secaucus Seven (made for peanuts and a great contrast with The Big Chill which came a few years later and addresses the same basic concept but with a slicker and more amoral sensibility) And, for that matter, Sayles film Lone Star is well worth checking out as well (as is Matewan and several of his other films including The Secret of Roan Inish). Yeah - there's a reason this guy has gotten a McArthur genius grant.

Seriously hot. As hot as she was, I thought it was really weird that she was singing Meatloaf songs.

The Sorels were badass though. And of course, the only actual band in the movie, The Blasters!

The 60's were the high point for the horror genre. Hammer, Amicus, Tigon, British Lion etc.

There will never be anything like it again even though there is talk that Hammer will be resurrected and start releasing feature films.

it broke my heart to find out the song the sorels were singing was actually sung by the dude who did the disco classic 'instant replay', and he's white!

I don't think the acapella on the bus was, but I could be wrong.

Hi.. im new here...
But I am ABSOLUTELY STRUGGLING trying to figure out this movie that i watched in the 80s when I was a younger kid.. This is the description someone PLEASE reply if you have ANY idea of what it is. It is a comedy... might even be spoof movie.

There 2 main characters... they are heading to this castle to save someone... The get this flying carpet that answers to the words YA WANNA POO POO... They summon witches by doing a song and dance. but they keep doing the wrong one and summon the bad witch.. I blieve one of the characters is a jester... They get to the castle where everything is GIANT SIZED and see a giant shaddow warning them to leave.... They eventually find out this giant was an old man behind a curtain with a light and cut out cardboard giant and used a megaphone type device to sound loud.

PLEase help me out here! thanks. I know it sounds ridiculous. but was a part of my childhood. lol

Not really. It is appropriately rated and known.

Yeah... what's up with the Hollywood remake? I think Infernal Affairs 1 was good. 2 and 3 was kinda strange and drawn out.
