Joo, kyllä tuo Godard-boxi meni hankintalistalle. Nyt on vielä rahatilanne sellainen että ei ihan olevaraa ostaa 30 boksia, mutta lähiaikoina se varmasti tänne tulee.
Kun heräsi himo klassikko-kauhufilmeihin, niin play.comissa seikkailin ja löysin seuraavan boksin [www.play.com]. Maksaa naurettavat 5.5€ 9 elokuvasta, mutta niiden laatu onkin sitten toinen asia. Eli joku asiantunteva voisi hieman opastaa, että onko hyvä vai huono ostos ostaa suraavat elokuvat ilman suomisubeja (tokkopa noita mistään niillä saisikaan) viidellä ja puolella eurolla?
The Corpse Vanishes (Dir. Wallace Fox, 1942): Bela Lugosi plays a botanist who sends orchids to blushing brides on their wedding days. But, they are not around to enjoy the reception as Bela kidnaps them to use their glandular fluids to rejuvenate his wife...
Horror Hotel (Dir. John Llewellyn Moxey, 1960): Young college student Nan Barlow (Stevenson) uses her winter vacation to research a paper on witchcraft in New England as her professor recommended that she spent her time in a small village called Whitewood. Once she gets to the village she notices some weird happenings but things begin to happen in earnest when she finds herself "marked" for sacrifice by the undead coven of witches!
The Terror (Dir. Roger Corman, 1963): A lieutenant in Napoleon's army (a young Jack Nicholson) traces a mysterious woman to a castle on the Baltic coast and finds himself trapped by a mad baron (Boris Karloff). This highly enjoyable, atmospheric slice of low-budget horror from the great Roger Corman was also reportedly directed at points by future talents Francis Coppola and Peter Bogdanovich.
Bucket Of Blood (Dir. Roger Corman, 1959): Walter is a busboy overly impressed with the cool cats who hang out at the Yellow Door coffee house, and he wonders how he can become "hip." When he accidentally kills his landlady's pet cat, Walter panics and covers it with clay. His prayers are answered, and before he knows it he's the "cat's meow" of the art world. His talents develop, and--surprise!--he can sculpt humans the same way, too.
The House On Haunted Hill (Dir. William Castle, 1959: Vincent Price has one of his juiciest roles in this haunted-house thriller as millionaire playboy Frederick Loren, who invites five guests out to a genuine haunted house, offering them each $10,000 if they spend the night. Elisha Cook Jr. plays one of the guests, a nervous alcoholic who has been in this house before and witnessed some terrible things. Mr. Loren's beautiful but treacherous wife (Carol Ohmart) is also present - and might be out to kill Frederick during the course of the evening; then again, he might be out to kill her.
The Ghoul (Dir, T. Hayes Hunter, 1934): Boris Karloff's first British film. The story of Professor Morlant, an eccentric Egyptologist who becomes obsessed with the mystical powers of the ancient Egyptian gods. On his deathbed he orders his servant to bind a sacred jewel called 'The Eternal Light' to his hand. He warns that if the jewel is stolen, he will return from the grave looking for revenge.
Little Shop Of Horrors (Dir. Roger Corman, 1960): The original movie of this classic black comedy/horror about a rather dim-witted young man, Seymour (Jonathan Haze), working for $10 a week in Mushnick's flower shop on skid row who develops an intelligent, bloodthirsty plant. He names the plant "Audrey 2" and, as it grows, it demands human meat for sustenance and Seymour is forced to kill in order to feed it. Jack Nicholson has a notable cameo part as an undertaker, Wilbur Force, who is a masochistic dental patient, and the film also features the writer Charles Griffith as the hold-up man and the voice of 'Audrey Jr'...
The Bat (Dir. Crane Wilbur, 1959): Based on the gothic novel by Mary Roberts Rinehart, this haunted house mystery casts Moorehead as the owner of a house with a million dollars hidden in it. Bodies pile up as the mysterious "Bat" tries to find the money first.
Bride Of The Monster (Dir. Edward D. Wood Jr., 1955): Bela Lugosi stars as Dr. Eric Vornoff, who with Lobo (Tor Johnson), a crazed man-beast servant, is conducting flesh-burning radiation experiments in an attempt to create a legion of atomic supermen.
Yhtäkään näistä en ole nähnyt ja nopeasti lukaistuna näyttäisi ihan hauskaa elokuvaa olla kyseessä. Bela Lugosia, Karloffia ja Christopher Leetä näyttäisi elokuvissa olevan. Joka tapauksessa olen jo kyseisen boksin päättänyt ostaa, mutta haluaisin vähän kommenttia jos joku olisi noista jonkun nähnyt...
