Here are two more really creaky old films, The Panther's Claw and The Crooked Circle. Panther's Claw is also a comedy and not a very good one at that, but it's got some nuttly old timey stuff in it if you like that. ( I do!)

Crooked Circle isn't half bad. A group of amateur detectives , that call thelmselves the Sphinx Club,sets out to expose The Crooked Circle, a secretive group of hooded occultists. It's serious in tone and features a haunted house, secret passages, a screaming maid etc. Although with Zazu Pitts as the maid, and James Gleason as a hard-boiled beat cop,  there is a touch of comedy.

I was quoting you from yesterday - you had the year, but left the title out.   Smile

I'm just repeating others here but The Innocents and Carnival of Souls are fantastic. They're both personal favourites of mine.


Turn off the lights and settle down for a spooky night in if you watch those two late on an evening...

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
