It’s a Horror to Know You: 4thtroika

1. What is the first film that ever scared you?

The Fly (1958). The ending completely freaked me out. The Fly’s voice is the vocal equivalent of nails on a chalk board. Vincent Price actually thought this was funny?

2. What is the last film that scared you?

Requiem for a Dream (2000). Forget the war on drugs, just make everyone watch this. It has all the subtlety of a sledgehammer between the eyes. People don’t consider this a horror movie? Ha! Give me Jason or Freddy or Chucky any day!

3. Name three Horror movies that you believe are underrated.

1. The Call of Cthulhu (2005). Some would say this movie has three things against it: black and white, a silent movie, and completely faithful to Lovecraft’s story (no gore, no T&A, no CGI acid trip, etc.). I say those are the things it has going for it.

2. The Baby (1973). The first time I tried watching this, I shut it off after the first 18 minutes and wouldn’t touch it for two weeks. This is one of those movies that gets under your skin and never leaves.

3. Sssssss (1973). I first saw this one years ago on the CBS Late Movie. It was rarely shown back then and I sometimes wondered if I’d hallucinated it. It’s a really good movie and one of Universal’s overlooked gems. The makeup is very effective.

Official Runner Up: Slither (2006). This movie really needs more love. Another overlooked gem from Universal.

4. Name three horror movies that you enjoy against your better judgment.

1. Blood Freak (1972). Don’t do drugs or the turkey man’ll getcha!

2. Five Across the Eyes (2006). The dialogue in this movie is laugh out loud hilarious. So bad it’s hysterical.

3. Beach Girls and the Monster (1965). A.K.A. Monster From the Surf. Where else are you going to see a beach babe and a lion puppet sing a song by Frank Sinatra Junior?

5. Send us to five places on the Internet!

1. Svengoolie.Com. The home site of Chicago’s beloved horror movie host, now shown nationally on the ME-TV Network.

2. The Scriptorium. Lots of cool fonts to purchase and download.

3. Seventh Sanctum. Here you’ll find a collection of ‘generators’ that make random characters, plots, ideas, and more to use in your writing, games, art and more.

4. Gitchy. An indie horror comedy about an evil clown that tickles people to death.

5. A Voice For Men. Take the red pill.

    Sharing your love for Requiem of a Dream! At first I thought, but its not scary, then I realized I haven’t done heroin or amphetamines since watching it!

    Thanks 4throika! I think I had a trauma flashback putting this post together. That scene from THE FLY always got to me too. There’s somthing amusing about it sure but the sound of his voice and especially the expression on his face is really disturbing. I’m with you on REQUIEM too. Great movie that I doubt I’ll ever be able to watch again. The ending is a nightmare and all the stuff with Ellen Burstyn kills me.

    Requiem for a Dream gives me the same kicked in the stomach/doomfilled stomach/sick to my stomach feeling that Texas Chainsaw Massacre (need I say original) always gives me, so, yeah, freaking horror.

    “An indie horror comedy about an evil clown that tickles people to death.”

    Clowns? Tickling? Tickling Clowns? For the love of God make it stop!

    The worst part of REQUIEM is that the characters become hopeful right before everything falls apart. It’s like they just dared to ask for a little more out of life and then SLAM! Non -stop hell-dive. I think I may have almost gone into a seizure at the end of that movie.

    I can totally get on board with Requiem as a horror movie (book is awesome too). But holy hell! how did you make it through Five Across the Eyes? Maybe the dialogue was unintentionally funny, I wouldn’t know, all I could hear (for the 30 or so minutes I could stand) was 5 girls screaming………constantly! That movie gave me nightmares for all the wrong reasons.
