Primoris Malum

« on: January 20, 2007, 02:14:48 PM »

I have been wondering for over 30 years what this movie may be. I figure I'll ask here, but I don't have a lot to go on.

My memory tells me that this movie was set in the jungle, but I may be wrong. The only thing that really sticks out is a pit or pool of some kind that was out in the woods/jungle. It was covered with mist and falling into it was not a desired fate. I THINK the film ended with a woman leaning over the pit/pool trying to retrieve some valuable object that had fallen into it. She stretches and strains to reach it but looses her balance and falls in.

That's all I can recall. I know it ain't much. Here are a few other things to keep in mind:

I saw this movie on TV somewhere around 1973 - 1975. The TV we had was a black and white so I have no idea if the film was in color or not, but I'd venture to say that it was an older B & W flick.

Any help or film suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

I come to think of "the Screaming Skull" from 1958.
It doesn't fit the bill on all points but it features an outside garden(looks like, AND sounds like a jungle) pool, which bubbles and is covered in an eerie mist most of the time. The pool is featured quite a bit in the film as it can be hypothesized to be the dwelling of THE screaming skull, a man dies there and the lead lady sits by it at least once. The said man is trying to drive the woman insane by way of the skull...
As I said earlier it doesn't sound exactly like your description but the pool/jungle/woman/death thing is there. If not at least it's an entertaining movie, with it's "We'll pay your funeral, if you die of fright!" -insurance before the opening credits! TeddyR

The second movie is the classical "The House on Haunted Hill" with Mr Price. I guess you have already ruled this out... Nonetheless it contains an acid pit (though indoors) in which a money hungry woman ends her days - right towards the end of the film.  hot

I would go for the Screaming Skull though... It was featured on the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 I have heard...if that helps.

Hope you find, whichever movie it turns out to be!
