In the opening credits of the film, "Ernest Scared Stupid", there are clips from old "B" horror/science fiction movies. The only ones I can make out are:

"Nosferatu" (1922 version)
"White Zombie"
"Phantom from Space"
"the Brain from Planet Arous"
"the Screaming Skull"
"Missile to the Moon"
"the Hideous Sun Demon"
"the Giant Gila Monster"
"the Killer Shrews"
"the Little Shop of Horrors" (1960 version)
"Battle Beyond the Sun" (originally "Nebo Zoyvot", but was re-edited with monster clashing footage)

Here are the clips. Can anyone identify these films for me? Thanks.

To take a look at the links, go to the main site for you-tube, searching "Ernest Scared Stupid opening credits", and you will see two clips. The first one is of a dark castle on a hilltop (beginning of 0:17; we see Jim Varney's name appear on the screen), and the second is a quick dark clip of a young man who is walking as only a zombie would, it is seen right after a clip of a woman screaming from a window and right before we see the (Phantom from Space - a man in an astronaut sort of costume), it is right after the Ernest shot; the second shot appears at the end of 0:17 and beginning of 0:18 (a "casting by Ruth Lambert").

Anyway, apologize if this is in the wrong thread, I am new, but can anyone please help? Thanks in advance, and unfortunately, I could not post any links, so you have to see the video vie the you-tube video, sorry about that, but hopefully, someone has some ideas, thanks once again in advance.

Just so people know, this is the video he's talking about:

Small | Large


The clips he wants to know about are at 0:17 and 1:17.  I can't tell which movies they're from.

OK, so I asked about this in the I Need to Know board on IMDb.  The kind people told me that the Castle is probably from some old Frankenstein movie.  And that the guy looks a lot like David Keith, so that still could be from Firestarter (1984) or Judge and Jury (1996).

Hope that helps.  The thread where I asked is here:  http://tinyurl.com/yjhd3rx though you may need an IMDb account to see it.  Not to sure how that works.

The 2nd still could not be from a 1996 film because Ernest Scared Stupid came out in 1991

here is a pic of David Keith .. the 2nd pic doesn't quite look like him



here is Keith in Firestarter ....

David Keith looks nothing like the man in the picture. The man in the picture resembles an early Kurt Russell (think of "Escape from New York"/"Escape from L.A.") in a space opera Mad Max oriented 60s flick. Additionally, this is very hard to see, but I put the second picture, the one of the man, in a file, and I maximized it, and it seems that there is a name that appears on the shirt of the name, it seems to be "Buck (something)", but it is very hard to make out.

As for the castle clip, it could be from "Young Frankenstein" or "Citizen Kane", but I doubt it. It also seems to be similar of footage from "the Haunted Palace", but the castle looks quite different than that one in comparison, and "the Haunted Palace" is a colorized movie. I must note, however, that the castle seen in the given picture strongly resembles the Belem Tower (Torre de Belem), which resides in the Belem district of Lisbon, Portugal, it is a sight-seeing castle displayed for tourists. You can find information about it on the internet. Anyway, I doubt that anyone ever used that tower as a model for a castle in the movie, but if you compare a picture of the Belem Tower and the castle from the opening credits of "Ernest Scared Stupid", they look nearly identical.

Does anyone have any other guesses?

Oh wait, there is something else. Even though the movies that appear during the opening credits are not listed in the ending credits, there are two acknowledgments, one is "main title footage provided by Sinister Cinema", and another is "additional footage provided by Wade Williams Inc"; I did email Sinister Cinema, sent them copies of the two pictures, and they told me that they did not recognize the pictures. I do not know if that helps much, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the movies that have these two clips are from the Wade Williams film company, so here is my question. Does anyone have an email address for the Wade Williams film company? Maybe I can email them. I doubt they will know, since the movie is years old, but who knows.

Anyway, as previously said, does anyone have any other guesses? Maybe someone can finally get this, and I can finally put this to rest.

Well,  the Wade Williams film company is owned by Wade Williams, who owns the largest independent library of science-fiction film rights and distributes his product worldwide through Corinth Films, Englewood Entertainment and Mass Productions (UK).  (Yes I took that last sentence from IMDb. Smile)

So that could be a lot of movies.  I couldn't find a contact for him, but you can keep Googleing.  Here's his IMDb page:  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0931897/  Also try Corinth Films, Englewood Entertainment, and Mass Productions.  Those might lead you to something.

Good luck!

I am also beginning to think the castle clip is from a "Frankenstein" movie, but looking at the castle, there seems to be crosses placed on the rooftops, so it also seems quite possible that there are vampires in the movie. Now, I have no clues what the movie could be from, but maybe: "Young Frankenstein", "Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks" (though that is colorized), and "Bud and Abbott meet Frankenstein." The castle still seems nearly identical to the Belem Tower, though.

The man also seems to have white heat reflecting on him, so I am thinking it is one of two movies, "Hell's Headquarters" (1932) (a war movie) and "the Lost Missile" (1958) a space movie, I have a feeling it is the second, though neither is colorized. It could just be a quick inside gag of a gaffer, but I am not entirely sure on that.
