Re: Frankenstein

The ability to evoke a sympathetic response in the viewer is a characteristic of many of the great monsters and the actors who portray them. One need only call to mind Lon Chaney Sr.'s portrayals of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME . Even Bela Lugosi's DRACULA , as evil and u...

Re: Difficulty Accessing Site

As most of you are undoubtedly aware, I don't post here (or anywhere) often, but I do visit frequently, so you can imagine my feelings when I kept being directed to a site offering "silver screens" for sale. What a relief to be able to get back to the Oasis (and what an appropriate name). ...

Re: Harper's Island

Well, I've been watching this. It's not bad, but it lacks the quirkiness of "Twin Peaks." The only real similarity between the two IMHO is that they both take place in small, rather isolated communities.

Some of the deaths are imaginatively staged but rather grisly.

Hello, Ms. Ryan. I've been enjoying your answers to our questions all week. I think your dad is one of the most underrated actors of our time. I think possibly his best quality as an actor is his ability to invest his characters with a sort of world-weary nobility, as in THE SET UP and even THE WILD...

True. In fact, just to give one example, he singlehandedly saves the otherwise quite pedestrian FORSAKING ALL OTHERS, 1934, which was on not long ago, as Gable's buddy.

You might want to watch the Sci-Fi Channel listings for this one, Anne.

They occasionally have marathons of their series and, in fact, had one for this show, 8 hours a day, all five weekdays this week. All you would need would be a few tapes or disks.

Hey, Ollie. I'll take a crack at answering your questions for you. Andrews' character (John Holden) is a psychologist who was invited to participate in a symposium debunking the supernatural, particularly devil worship and witchcraft. His "area of expertise" lies in what we might today cal...

Another good film along these lines is 1965's BUNNY LAKE IS MISSING , directed by Otto Preminger. In the film, Carol Lynley's young daughter disappears from a day school, managing it so completely that Mom is unable to prove she ever existed when the police, led by Laurence Olivier, come to investig...

Bogart was also in VIRGINIA CITY (1940), an Errol Flynn Western in which he played the bad guy with a truly hilarious faux-Mexican accent!

I Wouldn't be at all surprised, Mike, if FRIDAY THE 13TH did "borrow" from A BAY OF BLOOD/TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE.

But BAY/TWITCH was done with much more style.

I also saw THE WHIP AND THE BODY under the title of WHAT? As you might imagine, there was some difficulty whenever someone would ask me the most recent film I had watched. Them: So, seen any interesting movies lately? Me: WHAT? Them: I said, what's the last movie you watched, dude? Me: That's right....
