1: Black and White, probably British and felt like it was shot in the 60's. A couple is driving in a car and it breaks down(?) in a small quaint English village covered in fog. Everyone in town is a murder or cannibal type deal. They hide in the local church and I believe the priest turns out to be oneof the killers to. They get the help of the police who also end up beingpossesed/ cannibals. It's possible that they tried to drive away but the spooky fog kept them for leaving.
2: Black and White possibley silent cell animated film, with title cards as if it was a classic silent film. I swore for years it was the spider anf the fly but no adaptations of it match the Burton-esque gothic feel it had.
3: A trailer aired on Canadian TV in the late 70's a lot. It had cheery, cheesey 70's music play as adults had a party downstairs. The kids upstairs were being murdered but the parents didn't care or couldn't hear them. It wasn't Flowers in the Attic and it sort of reminds me of Black Christmas (it wasn't it though)

This sounds like a mix of "Brigadoon" (1954) and "2000 Maniacs" (1964).  Could you possibly be remembering the latter film and the memory is distorted by the years?

I'm sure it was British, very very British. It kind of reminded me of Village of the Damned and The Dæmons from Doctor Who in tone.

It wasn't a musical either, so Brigadoon is right out.

Change the villains to witches and City of the Dead (1960) seems to fit for # 1.

There were a lot of classic British anthology series in the 50s-60s - The Veil, Out of This World, Out of the Unknown, Mystery and Imagination...any chance you might have seen something from one of these for # 1?

I saw it in Canada in the 70's one afternoon, maybe as part of the TVO channel. I remember three films (two of which I've identified: The Monolith Monsters, and Battle Beneath the Earth), but never the third which I can recall vividly.

If it was in color and not black and white, you could be remembering one of the anthology stories for The Monster Club (1981)....for # 1.

I'm sure it was black and white. Thanks for helping me find it though.

    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.
