The Snake Pit :

Super Olivia De Haviland-in-a-mental-hospital film, early precursor to Psycho, Cuckoo's Nest and, from watching, seems like Ken Russell was influenced by it wholesale for The Devils. Strangely moving and really quite disturbing in bits.

This thread is great. Finally watched Rollerball and I'm gonna check Snakepit and Deathline next. Keep posting that kind of crap up please. Especially if anyone has a link to Blue Sunshine, I'd really like to see that.

Also, when I watched It's A Wonderful Life at Christmas I said to my girlfriend "How come nobody has done a kind of parody called Franz Kafka's It's a Wonderful Life" - turns out (from that link) they have and it won an oscar. Gonna watch it now I think.

ok, these look like fun (not my descriptions):


virus, 1980

A plane carrying biological warfare crashes, causing a deadly virus to be released, killing off most of the world's population. A handful of surviving scientists are in a hurry to find a cure. Will they succeed?




embryo, 1976

A scientist doing experiments on a human fetus discovers a method to accelerate the fetus into a mature adult in just a few days. However, the "adult" fetus turns into a homicidal psycho and looks for a new formula to prevent her from aging further.

i've since found a longer (by one hour) version of virus. according to youtube comments (which i take at gospel) this was one of the highest-grossing japanese films ever and bombed in the states. enjoy!

classic spaghetti western Django, aka the movie they are watching in the theatre in The Harder They Come...

this guy's channel has a ton of Spaghetti Westerns including Good, Bad, Ugly...

I think that Django is probably the best western I've seen. I like it more than the sequel which gets more props (and isn't really a sequel cos it has nothing whatsoever to do with the first one and has a different guy playing Django I think - there are about thirty more sequels along similar lines).
