Halloween Cinema Madness!

This Halloween I didn't want to get stuck watching just the classics like Beetle Juice and Nightmare Before Christmas, I was looking to widen my spooky movie database. I am lucky to have satellite and DVR, as I sniffed out a few movies I hadn't seen before. Here are a few you should check out if you are looking to get into the Halloween Spirit. If you have the Channel TCM (Turner Classic Movies) you can get most of these movies.

Pit And The Pendulum (1961)
A young man investigates his sister's death in a mysterious castle. Cast: Vincent Price, Barbara Steele, John Kerr.
What says Halloween more then Vincent Price acting in a Movie based
off of an Edgar Allen Poe Story? The acting wasn't too bad and the effects were as good as you can expect from a 1960's movie. Nothing puts me into the Halloween spirit more then Vincent Price going insane!


War Of The Worlds, The (1953)
A scientist on vacation stumbles upon a Martian invasion. Cast: Gene Barry, Ann Robinson, Les Tremayne.
Super Cheesy special effects and bad acting make this a must see!


Strait-Jacket (1964)
Murder follows an axe murderer home when she's released from a mental hospital. Cast: Joan Crawford, Diane Baker, George Kennedy.
This Movie was totally cheesy, but that's why it is totally amazing! And there is a little twist at the end.
