    6 is Toolbox Murders

  • 2 kathy13No Gravatar // Aug 8, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    1 is from I’m Dangerous Tonight-?
    And I know 2 is from a Tales from the Crypt episode but I can’t remember the name of it.
    Is 8 Funhouse?

    Kathy13 is cleaning up!

    6 = THE TOOLBOX MURDERS

    1 = I’m Dangerous Tonight

    2= TALES FROM THE CRYPT “Dead Wait”

    8= THE FUNHOUSE

    Good eye Kathy13!

    BTW- That Wanda Thatcher character referenced in the “I’m Dangerous tonight” image is played by a nearly unrecognizable DEE WALLACE vamping it up in a brunette wig.

    If Whoopi Goldberg isn’t saying “You in danger, girl,” then I don’t know what it is.

    Note: I’m bad at these but wanted to participate.

    I’m just guessing here:
    #3 Freddy’s Nightmares -1st episode
    #10 Crocodile

    Amanda,

    Oh that whoopsie!

    Crabbymoon,

    You nailed #3 ! FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES episode #1 “No More Mr Nice Guy”

    Sorry if these are too tough! I gotta say it wasn’t easy finding an image from TCM that wasn’t instantly recognizable but it’s up there!

    Hey wait, isn’t that Neville Brand behind that lamp?
    #5 Eaten Alive

  • 8 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Aug 8, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    Go Crabbymoon!

    #5 = EATEN ALIVE

    There are some clues in those photos

    like the fence in #7

    and the license plate in # 9

    And the mark in the metal in #10

  • 9 crabbymoonNo Gravatar // Aug 8, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    #4 Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    #9-Uk license plates? Lifeforce?

  • 10 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Aug 8, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    Crabymoon,

    Big yes on #4 being TCM…

    and EXCELLENT detective work on #9- LIFEFORCE!

    That is how it’s done!

    🙂 🙂 🙂

    7 is INVADERS FROM MARS, methinks.

    10 is absolutely TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2.

    Hope these close out Hooper’s Cannon Films tenure.

    sampanaflex,

    Yes!

    7 = INVADERS FROM MARS.

    and 10 is TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2!

    That’s all ten!

    Nice job. Thanks to all who helped!

    I should have known 5! The lighting in that film is really distinct-the whole film has this sort of dusty/dirty, eerie glow about it…I’m mad at myself for missing that and 4. And 3 seems kind of obvious now, but I’d forgotten he directed some of Freddy’s Nightmares; I haven’t seen that show in years-I can’t find it anywhere now. 🙁

    Don’t sweat it Kathy13! You hit more than your share of home runs here! Excellent work! 🙂

  • 15 unkle lanciferNo Gravatar // Aug 10, 2014 at 1:42 am

    And you’re right EATEN ALIVE has a look like no other! It’s like dusty and neon at the same time and almost seems like it’s filmed on a stage.

  • 16 kathy13No Gravatar // Aug 11, 2014 at 1:42 am

    Thanks! And yeah, I think my favorite thing about that film is it’s just all around vibe, which the film’s look plays a big part in.
    Also, it’s funny that I haven’t seen Funhouse in years, and only have vague memories of it, but somehow clearly remember the bathroom of all things…
