DEATHDREAM was suggested by RetroRussell, an excellent suggestion if you want CREEPY 70s Horror, and that one holds up. 

ER, I would probably then urge you to look at:   
OSSESSIONE (1943)  Sexy movie, weirdly distracted, and... spooky.

 in 2014 I consciously set out to watch a bunch more, almost one every other day (which was huge for me) and in that case I even wrote a hundred page...whatever (e-book? memoir?) about it that if you haven't yet read, boy, you're cheating yourself because it's  totally brilliant, National Book Award material, Pulitzer-worthy, and includes movies, drug addicts, stabbing, a bris, a jail sentence avoided, and amorous, roaming blackbears. It's all about a year in my life filled with motion pictures of all stripe, and every word of it is true. (Except that one. Or...yes, just that one.)


What is the name of this torrid tome so that we may bask in its dark brilliance?

Ha! It's unimaginably titled A Year In Film  though I was thinking of re-naming it Captain Longleaf's Barrel of Zoom. More spizz, y'know? If you want to read it let me know. That goes for everybody.

ER, I have a feeling our tastes in movies diverge. Instead of just listing favorites I'll try to list movies which seem historically significant:

H.G. Well's Things to Come - Not the late 70's Star Wars rip off, the 30's version which actually had Well's assistance. This was the most expensive movie ever made till Gone With the Wind came out

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - Disney's 1st big-budget live-action feature.

Song of the South - If you can find a copy. Good live action/animation FX mix. Represents the Old South theme as well as Gone with the Wind, but much shorter/less racist.

Beneath the 12 Mile Reef -  2nd film shot in CinemaScope. Don't let the title fool you; while there is some under-water action it's mostly a melodrama. Based loosely on Romeo and Juliet. From what I've read the studio let copyright lapse, so you can probably get it cheaply.

Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein - Good for Halloween, and probably a good representation of Abbot and Costello's craft.

Sons of the Desert - One of Laurel and Hardy's best features, a good representation of their craft.

Steamboat Bill - The General gets all the accolades, but I thought this one was funnier. A good representation of Buster Keaton's craft.

The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes - Bad, but it's where AIP started.

Pokemon the First Movie - Probably more of a personal choice... Yeah, let's leave it at that. Still the most financially successful anime film to get a wide release in the U.S.

The Thief and The Cobbler - Probably the best traditional animation produced since the 40's.

The 7th Void of Sinbad - Ray Harryhausen's 1st adventure movie. (Actually I haven't seen this all the way through. I really want to tho.)

King Kong - Put together most of the visual and sound FX techniques filmmakers would use till the 80's. Except for:

The Thief of Baghdad - 40's version, stars Sabu. Blue Screens were invented for this movie. (Earlier traveling matt processes required actors to be bathed in a yellow light. This was a color film, so that wouldn't work.)

The Jungle Book - 40's Version. Also starring Sabu. Not all that significant, but I like it. Adapts Tiger! Tiger!, The King's Ankus, and Letting in the Jungle. Unlike Disney's adaptions Kaa the rock Python is a good guy. Might represent the Jungle Adventure genre well.

2001: A Space Odyssey - Front projection was invented for this movie.

Star Wars/Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Motion control cameras finally became practical. (Douglas Tumbrull tried something similar for The Starlost, an earlier TV show, but wasn't able to get it working till Close Encounters.)

CG's hard to pin down. I'd recommend watching TRON, The Last Starfighter, Terminator 2, and Jurassic Park to trace its development. Almost forgot DragonHeart; while JP used a mix of robots, costumes, puppets, and CG, DH's creature was done completely with computers, if memory serves. That's significant.

Les Affames (2017) -- French film with English subtitles. The old trope of a "zombie" virus turned into an emotionally devastating and fairly silent film. Even the dialogue is softly spoken, because in this world, the "hungry" can hear and track the slightest sounds. Unnerving film that puts you ground level with a group of survivors who are hoping for safety and salvation but knowing that such things are well-nigh impossible. This honestly should become a classic. Watch the original before some dumbass American company decides to remake it with copious CGI and Michael Bay-level action sequences.

Slaughterhouse Five (1972) -- A quirky, yet excellent, film version of Kurt Vonnegut's most accessible works. Retains most of the novel's intelligence. You do not need to read the book to understand the film. A simple Everyman becomes unstuck in his own timeline and finds himself landing in various significant points of his life. You learn who he is, what events shaped him, and how he ultimately found his bliss. Sad, funny, and profound. Definitely worth a look.

Pretty Maids All in a Row (1971) -- An oddity with a script by Gene Roddenberry and directed by Roger Vadim. A typical California high school suddenly has a rash of the prettiest schoolgirls ending up dead. Not a slasher. It is actually an attack on the permissiveness blossoming in high schools at the time as well as a social comedy on the ineptitude of the supposedly progressive West Coast ideals. See Rock Hudson play a character who is funny, sexy, and out of control. Watch a fairly young Angie Dickinson as a teacher who keeps stumbling over the same awkward high school boy who finds the first murder victim.

More as I think of them. If you want a list of alternate titles ("Best of the Worst" or "Movies I Should Never Recommend to Reasonable People"), let me know. Otherwise, I will try to only list movies that I dearly love, yet are still a touch weird.

PS Rev, it's funny, I don't think I had heard of The Room until recently, and suddenly I keep hearing about it. Odd how that happens sometimes.

Not so odd. With THE DISASTER ARTIST coming out, THE ROOM is back in the limelight. But the same thing happened to me about 3 years ago with THE ROOM. Had no clue about it. Once I heard about it, the damn thing seemed to be haunting me.

Then I watched it.

Now it just scares me in a good way.

Start the Revolution Without Me -- Historically accurate? Probably not, but you can't go too wrong with Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland playing dual roles. Oh, and Orson Welles, who was big enough to play dual roles without special effects. And it's a comedy.
