TERROR EXPRESS  is on my to-watch list. anyone seen it?



Do you mean HORROR EXPRESS? With Lee and Cushing and Telly Savalas?

nope, nor NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS which is another sleazy euro horror thing.... in fact after posting that I watched 'TERROR EXPRESS IN 10 MINUTES' on youtube, and I think I've seen enough...

I like this exchange-when the Inspector is questioning Lee and Cushing-
Inspector -" But what if one of you is the monster?"
Lee-" Monster? We're British, you know."
Being the 2 are famous for their horror roles, it struck me as funny.

I love HORROR EXPRESS... with TELLY SAVALAS!!!  

One of my favorites is CASTLE OF BLOOD with BARBARA STEELE...  aka CASTLE OF TERROR aka DANZA MACABRA...

I saw a movie called Night of the Seagulls at a local bad movie convention.  Despite its title, its not a Birdemic style nature's revenge movie.  Rather its apparently part of a series, where the main threat are these blind zombies that where once templar knights.  It sounded interesting, and I would have picked it up had I not been a little light on cash at the moment.  Has anyone else seen any entry in what is called the "Blind Dead" series?

I have all 4 Blind Dead movies, but have only watched the first 2, so far.  They were decent.  Creepy and atmospheric.  The first is either available uncut and subtitled, or a edited and English dubbed. 

I've also watched youtube reviews on the second two that basically condensed the movies down into the review.  The Ghost Galleon looked to be the crappiest one of the bunch.  Some of the effects were downright laughable. Lookingup

I quite liked the GHOST GALLEON which I believe is NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS with a title change. I saw it under the name HORROR OF THE ZOMBIES.

 I also quite liked...

. Jean Rollins' LIVING DEAD GIRL (1982)

.Fulci's CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD (1980) aka GATES OF HELL. I can take or leave most of Fulci's work.  Plotless (or over-plotted) stuff like the BEYOND (aka SEVEN DOORS OF DEATH) and MANHATTAN BABY leave me cold. But this and ZOMBIE (1979) are keepers.

. the Italian made Vincent Price film the LAST MAN ON EARTH (1964) which is the best version of Matheson's novella. the OMEGA MAN is ok, and the Will Smith version, with it's CGI zombies, could suck a golf ball through a garden hose.

Fulci's LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN stands out for me as his most accomplished work. It seems a lot classier than his other stuff imo. I also like NEW YORK RIPPER for its sleaziness.

but yeah he's directed some clunkers too... some stray into so-bad-it's-good territory (A TOUCH OF DEATH and CAT IN THE BRAIN)

GHOST GALLEON and NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS are separate entities...they are the last two installments of the Blind Dead saga.

no offense to anyone, but last man on earth with vincent price is the ONLY version worth watching,  and it is AMAZINGLY close to the original story.

That sure doesn't offend me.  It's the best in my opinion, too. 

I HATED the I Am Legend version with Will Smith.  I haven't seen The Omega Man in many years, but I don't remember especially liking it.  It might be time for a re-watch, though.
