"Charlie,we're in HELL!"-"yeah,ain't it groovy?!"

Ok-I'm not going to go into the plot,here-because it's all been done before-a group of folks are stranded the night in an old dark house,and somebody is picking them off one by one in horrible ways. So-why is this in the GOOD movie section-look who's on the poster!  
Vincent Price! Christopher Lee! John Carradine!
Peter Cushing!
 And not only do they appear in the film-these are not mere cameos-oh no-they all give full-bloodied (hehe!) performances!
Peter Cushing is very funny-his character has an Elmer Fudd like speech defect (" I think we should weave! We should weave!"-"leave".)
It's always good to hear John Carradine's booming baritone.
Vincent Price is in his element,and Lee is mysterious and commanding-and towards the end-very scary!
I've been wanting to see it for years-and I finally got the chance!
One bad point-Desi Arnez Jr. is one of the WORST actors I've seen this side of BLOOD FREAK.
If you ever get the chance to see this-DO SO! It was on Comet yesterday-if you get Comet-try to catch it-yeah,I know-the rerun the s**t out of there programming once a month-but you can catch some real gems on it! (plus for you MSTK3000 freaks-their gonna start rerunning that show-2 episodes back to back every Sunday. And on Labor Day they got a Godzilla/Japanese monsters marathon!

EDIT-Why are all my sentences underlined???

     I may have to watch this again; I saw it years ago and was rather disappointed, probably because Mr. Arnaz stunk up everything.


If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
