I’m sure our readers are well aware of the must-see horror TV classics (DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW, TRILOGY OF TERROR, DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, DON’T GO TO SLEEP, GARGOYLES BAD RONALD, et al.) and I’m assuming I’ve already pushed more praise on SATAN’S TRIANGLE than any human can reasonably be expected to in one lifetime, so here is a grab bag of TV horrors that are often overlooked and deserve a little more love… (Really I’m just linking to old reviews and making like I’ve done a fresh post. Don’t gripe, it’s recycling and it helps the environment.)
DEADLY MESSAGES (1985)
You get a chatty Ouija board, a maniac with a huge knife, that lady from ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE? (KATHLEEN BELLER) and it’s written and directed by the fine folks who brought you THE MIDNIGHT HOUR! This atmospheric gift even takes place during the Christmas holiday! Read more HERE.
SUMMER GIRL (1983)
Will DIANE FRANKLIN one day discover Kindertrauma and be rightly disturbed by my unhealthy obsession with everything she does? Who knows? In the meantime read more HERE.
BLACK NOON (1971)
Watch it for the exceptional cast and love it for sticking a stick of dynamite in your ear and blowing up your brain. More unabashed affection found HERE.
NIGHT GALLERY‘s “Brenda”
Hey, this isn’t a movie, it’s a NIGHT GALLERY segment! I can’t help it. I’m putting this here anyway because it still haunts me. Read more HERE.
THE HOUSE THAT WOULD NOT DIE (1970)
This one is a legit classic but I scarcely hear it mentioned these days on account of I guess it’s kinda granny-toned. Luckily all I need is some creepy whispering voices to get me going! More HERE.
