CREEPY CLASSICS presents...
Every weekend we're watching movies together...whether you're in Pennsylvania USA, or Sydney Australia. It's a throwback! Back to the days when you had the anticipation for waiting till the weekend to see the classic horror or science fiction film that was listed in the TV Guide. The plan is to watch a movie at 7:30PM on Saturday night in your own time zone. Or, if you can't Saturday night...anytime during the weekend. Then, we'll all get together and e-mail our thoughts on the film...a few paragraphs...or simply a sentence if you'd like. They after-viewing reviews appear on our Creepy Classics/Monster Bash News Page. See the latest thoughts posted by viewers ther now.
Concept submitted by Mike Adams of Cartaret, New Jeresey.

THIS PAST WEEKEND'S MOVIE:"CURSE OF THE FACELESS MAN" (1958) A petrified stone man is discovered in ancient volcanic ruins. The explorers who discovered the rock encased body, find there's an ancient evil at work. The thing walks again. Low-budget fun 50's flick! Suggested by John Pasko, Freehold, NJ.
Reviews and thoughts and fun memories:
Saw this one on Creature Feature from WNEW-TV 5, New York when I was about eleven years old. It played a few times on Creature Feature (Saturday night at 8:30) and at least once on their afternoon showcase at Channel 5, Jeepers Creepers. I can remember a miserable rating in my Leonard Maltin, dog-eared paperback. But, I really like it. It plays very much like a mummy movie. You have the reincarnated female love interest that the creature is stalking. It's an almost untoppable monster. Slow, plodding...but it just keeps coming. The movie is also slow and plodding at points...but, there's enough "monster" that kept me interested. Heck, you get to see the monster right off the bat and he dispenses with a truck driver when the movie is only just five minutes in.
Oh, and you have a scientist/historian that reminds me of the Strohmann bread baker from old TV commercials. Both in look and accent.....
Vacation to the Pompeii ruins anyone?

It was a dark and stormy night. Shadows danced on the wall. The world mocked me with indifference. I was afraid. Somewhere out there someone was making a movie with lots of computer graphics and overpaid actors and no one would stop them. They would make a lot of money and earn a lot of accolades but the end product would be awful and forgettable and not nearly as endearing as "Plan 9 From Outer Space" even after a hundred viewings.
Note to any law enforcement personnel reading this: if we say we've seen a monster just believe us. We have no reason to lie.
