    Dang, these are toughies! All I’ve got is #4… Stir of Echoes.

  • 2 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:09 am

    Chris is right on with Stir of Echoes to get us started!

  • 3 Walter PaisleyNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:12 am

    Am I absolutely insane for thinking #6 might be The Doctor and the Devils?

  • 4 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Not insane at all! Walter picks up The Doctor and The Devils, one of three movies shown with acting ties to James Bond!

  • 5 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:14 am

    To James Bond films, actually.

  • 6 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:26 am

    It should be noted that I rarely go anywhere without the likes of John Carpenter, Christopher Lee, Boris Karloff, and Brian De Palma on my mind.

  • 7 Dylan Donnie-DukeNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Total guesses, but my memories stirred and this was the result:
    9 Dressed to Kill?
    3 Rear Window?

  • 8 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 9:32 am

    Ah! As much as I love Rear Window, it did not make the cut…but a film that’s tied to a Hitchcock film did!

    And 9 is not Dressed to Kill, though you’re right to assume De Palma….

  • 9 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:01 am

    I just realized I made a mistake above, number 9 is not De Palma! Number 8 is! (Sorry, I’m a Funhouse rookie!)

    Some Hints to keep us rolling….

    1 – There’s a poster for Carpenter’s Halloween on the wall, though he has nothing to do with the film.
    2 – Those birds might look a little more familiar in black and white…
    3 – A Hammer film, but there’s no sign of Dracula anywhere about!
    4- Stir of Echoes
    5 – Shares a co-star with Number 6, which is….
    6 – The Doctor and the Devils
    7 – Made for TV by one heckuva director!
    8 – De Palma loves having people peep, doesn’t he?
    9 – Slasher that shares a name with an ’80s rock song I love!
    10 – One of my favorite movies about movies ever made, features footage from another movie its star made.

  • 10 Andre DumasNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:21 am

    Jeesh the Mike you’re always making things so tough!

    Would #2 perhaps be Psycho II?

  • 11 Andre DumasNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:26 am

    Oh and I think #8 is Sisters
    and guess that #7 is Salems Lot? Maybs?

  • 12 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Andre, you’re almost right on 2…

    And dead on on 8 – Sisters! Unfortunately, no to the Salem’s Lot.

    So, we’ve got…..
    1 – I’m telling y’all, that Halloween poster plays a part….
    2 – Not quite Psycho 2
    3 – Hammer with Chris Lee!
    4 – Stir of Echoes
    5 – Shares a co-star with No. 6!
    6 – The Doctor and the Devils
    7 – Made for TV by a fine director.
    8 – Sisters
    9 – 80s slasher with song name
    10 – Movie about movies featuring another movie from its star.

  • 13 aunt johnNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Want to preface with the fact that I am not privy to the answers… Unk never tells me anything about the Funhouse.

    That said, I’m going with Someone’s Watching Me! for #7 & Every Rose Has Its Thorn for #9 (ok, I know that’s not a real movie… but it should be!)

  • 14 aunt johnNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:43 am

    Is #2 Pyscho III?

  • 15 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:52 am

    Ha! I’d so watch Every Rose Has Its Thorn the movie!

    And #7 is Someone’s Watching Me!, from the great John Carpenter!

    1 – References no less than Marilyn Monroe and Jimmy Cagney, to name a few.
    2 – Not Psycho II.
    3 – I don’t know why, but Hammer films seem to always have the hero looking out a door for something.
    4 – Stir of Echoes, painted black by Chris!
    5 – Our hero runs to save a family member!
    6 – The Doctor and the Devils are identified by Walter Paisely!
    7 – Aunt John always feels like Someone’s Watching Me!
    8 – Sisters, as recognized by Andre (and Dominique) Dumas!
    9 – A little more up tempo than Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Featuring a three named actress who’s the daughter of an actor!
    10 – This one’s slightly unseen, but I’m sure someone can get a bullseye on it!

  • 16 eugeniepetiteNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:53 am

    is number 1 Fade to Black???????

  • 17 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:54 am

    And Aunt John picks up from Andre’s assist! Jeff Fahey’s overalls star in Psycho III!

    1 –
    2 – Psycho III
    3 –
    4 – Stir of Echoes
    5 –
    6 – The Doctor and The Devils
    7 – Someone’s Watching Me!
    8 – Sisters
    9 –

  • 18 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:54 am

    Eugeniepetite is right on with Fade To Black for Number 1!

  • 19 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Man, I wish I didn’t have the answers today! I wanna guess on these too.

    If I may though, I have an extra hint for #9 and it’s “Cruise Director”

  • 20 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 11:32 am

    Alright, more hints!

    3 – Based on an acclaimed novel, and adapted for Hammer by THE Richard Matheson!

    5 – Not a fan of Matheson? How bout an adaptation by THE Ray Bradbury?

    9 – Well, nobody adapted this one….but it’s safe to say that that it was inspired by an Audrey Hepburn film!

    10 – The feature debut of an acclaimed director, and his only flirtation with horror. Based on a real-life killing spree!

  • 21 jimbo65No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Just from the clue could 1 be fade to black?

  • 22 jimbo65No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    arrgh late…
    How bout 10 targets

  • 23 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    Well, I didn’t expect this to go into the lunch hour…More hints!

    3 – The title was changed for American audiences, because distributors thought that the title sounded too much like a western.

    5 – Both Steven Spielberg and David Lean were asked to direct this film by Bradbury!

    9 – A movie theater scene features a poster for Dawn of the Dead, because Tom Savini worked on the film!

    10 – In a spoof of the star’s iconic image, he at one point is startled by his own reflection in a mirror!

  • 24 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    Yes! Jimbo comes in with the save on Targets at #10!

    1- Fade to Black
    2 – Psycho III
    3 –
    4 – Stir of Echoes
    5 –
    6 – The Doctor and The Devils
    7 – Someone’s Watching Me!
    8 – Sisters
    9 –
    10 – Targets

  • 25 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I’ve taken a particular interest in getting #9 solved!

    Poster tag line…

    “Sorry, your party is dead.”

  • 26 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    I know, Unk! It seems many are blind and deaf to this one!

  • 27 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    And I noticed after sending you images that #5 was just in the Funhouse a couple of weeks ago! My bad there!

  • 28 KirstyNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    When I saw #3, I thought Invasion of the Bodysnacthers? Is it Omega Man based off I Am Legend?

  • 29 KirstyNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Wild guess 5-Something Wicked This Way Comes?

  • 30 magiredNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    is 9. eyes of a stranger?

  • 31 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Yes! That’s trusty old Jason Robards rushing to Darks Carnival in Something Wicked This Way Comes in #5!

    Annnnddd….magired nails #9 – Eyes of a Stranger, featuring a young Jennifer Jason Leigh!

    All that leaves is #3, Hammer’s adaptation by Richard Matheson but not necessarily OF Richard Matheson!

  • 32 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Mike,

    I almost put #3 in my Satan’s Unsung post till I found out it was from 1968! Even though it was a big hit in England apparently it didn’t do too well in the states.

  • 33 magiredNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    is 3 devil rides out?

  • 34 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    Magired Saves the Day !!!

    I thought I was going to miss the end of this Funhouse cuz I have to catch a bus to NY soon!

    (Me and AJ are going to see PEE WEE HERMAN this weekend!!! )

    Thanks so much THE MIKE for such a challenging Funhouse, your awesome picks and your excellent hosting!!

    Have a great weekend all!!

    also

    Sorry about all the explanation points!!!!! but my inner voice is VERY Kermit the Frog!

  • 35 Walter PaisleyNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Well, it’s got to be The Devil Rides Out.

  • 36 Walter PaisleyNo Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Oops, too late.

  • 37 TheMike31No Gravatar // Nov 12, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    Yes, The Devil Rides Out it is!

    Many thanks to everyone for playing, and thanks to Unk and AJ for having me!
