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 first 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.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Saturday September 15, 2012 - MOVIE - Melodama "CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE" (1944). An intriguing tale, beautifully filmed in a style that bears more resemblance to a Grimm’s fairytale than horror, with a mesmerizing performance from Ann Carter. This is her film and she is strong and convincing in the role. The exploration of the insecurity of the child coupled with a troubled relationship with her father is fascinating. The expectation of a "horror" film with the suggestive title is also misleading. This is ultimately a surprisingly sensitive and uniquely haunting film that would appeal on many levels. Suggested by Steven Schimming - New Hampshire.
A beautiful fantasy movie featuring the ghost of the character from the CAT PEOPLE (Simone Simon). Magical scenes in a haunted garden that really come to life in this Val Lewton proction. And, the scene ofthe old woman telling the tale of "Sleepy Hollow" is just riviting! I actually like this film better than the great CAT PEOPLE.

My favorite Lewton film and one my favorites period. Despite the lurid
I think Erana appears to little miss because she represents the child she could have had with
Anyways a great old fashioned b/w
(Note: Ann is still around and she's been invited to Monster Bash! Let's hope she responds. -Ron)
