This will probably show just how young I am but has anyone seen the movie Mac and Me? I have to say I don't think its a very good movie but I love it. I went for years remembering having rented it when I was really small and watching it but could not remember the name. Then destiny brought me to the bargain bin at Walmart and there it was, and it all came flooding back. I loved the dance number in McDonald's. It was cheesy but I loved it!
My avatar is a reminder to myself. I need lots of reminders...

Mister Matt, I can't let you suffer any more sleepless nights. Is the movie you are referring to Brian De Palma's 'Dressed To Kill'?

Plot: Sexually bored housewife Kate Miller allows herself to be picked up in an art gallery by a complete stranger for a afternoon's casual sex back at his apartment. But as she leaves she is hacked to death in the elevator by a woman in a blonde wig and dark glasses wielding a razor. The police suspect callgirl Liz Blake who was leaving another apartment at the same time. Liz teams with the Kate's teenage son Peter to find the real killer and clear herself.

"I Saw What You Did...and I know Who You Are," starring an aged and progressively drunker Joan Crawford wearing a chandelier for a necklace.

Javi - No it wasn't, but thanks for trying. This film was much earlier. Probably early 70s. A very strong image occuring in an attic of a "woman" (actually revealing herself to be a man in drag)in a white nightgown holding a wig in one hand and a knife in the other advancing on her victim with a very disturbing pyschotic expression on his/her face.

Perhaps one of the PSYCHO sequels?

Not to be confused with Joan Crawford's STRAIGHT JACKET. The extreme precurser version of MOMMIE DEAREST.

No. The Psycho sequels didn't start until the 80s. I don't think there was anyone as renown as Crawford in this film. ARRRRGHH!!!! It's driving me crazy! I can visualize the whole thing. It may have had something to do with a babysitter (perhaps in the title?).

It's like that other film with the sculptor guy who encased his victims in clay (and it wasn't House of Wax). I know the main character was a popular actor at the time - late 60s early 70s. The typical lead female discovers them by accidentally knocking one over in his studio and starts screaming. Of course, she cannot get away because he is walking very slowly towards her. No matter how fast the victims run, they will never get away and the killers just sort of stroll along...

Matt. I wasn't suggesting it was Crawford's STRAIGHT JACKET. I was simply adding that film to the list.

As for the sculture who murdered his victims and encased them in clay...I saw that too, numerous times!..I can see one statue with the pizza pie thing stuck in its skull...it was very similar in tone to the original LITTLE SHOP.

I suspect the name'll come to me.

I'm so glad someone remembers at least one of the films I was talking about. I was beginning to think I was going nuts.

Hey Matt, I was thinking about your nightmare and wondered if it was the TV show Night Gallery? That show scared me when I was a kid and a lot of the images from some of those episodes scared me for years. Could that be what you are thinking of? Or did you see this in a theatre?
PEACE.

SueleenGay - No. I remember they were those cheesy Saturday Afternoon movies. You know the ones. Low-budget uknown flicks they assume no one will watch because they shouldn't be sitting in front of a TV in the middle of a Saturday. Something like "Horror at 37,000 Feet" or "The Babysitter".

Speaking of cheesey Saturday afternoon films, I always recall The 30 Foot Brid of Candy Rock

Only film starring Lou Costello without Bud Abbott. This 1959 film had Dorothy Provine enlarged to gigantic proportions.

Remember Dorothy from TV's "The Roaring Twenties"?

The sequel was to have been a porn flick "The 30 Foot Bride meets the Incredible Shrinking Man" till the producer realized this was a common occurance and no one was going to pay for what they could see at home for free.

Here you go Matt. I knew I'd find it. Now how could it have been so difficult? The title came to me immediately...

A Bucket of Blood (1959)


Walter Paisley, nerdish waiter at a Bohemian cafe, is jealous of the talent (and popularity) of its various artistic regulars. But after accidentally killing his landlady's cat and covering the body in plaster to hide the evidence, he is acclaimed as a brilliant sculptor - but his new-found friends want to see more of his work. Lacking any artistic talent whatsoever, Walter has to resort to similar methods to produce new work, and soon people start mysteriously disappearing...

Gee, sounds a bit like LITTLE SHOP...hmmmm.

Mister Matt, let's try this again because I'm really worried about your sleepless nights he he he he. Is the movie you're thinking of 'Don't Open The Door' (1975)? Here's the plot:

From imdb:
The plot deals with a curvaceous blonde named Amanda returning to her hometown to care for her sick grandmother. Years ago her mother was stabbed to death there by an unknown slasher. Once she is back at the house, a freaked out transvestite starts axing random folks and calling Amanda, seducing her and whispering perverse lines over the phone.

HIGHLIGHT: Even though I was expecting it, it was still kinda creepy when that mannequin turned out to be the museum director in drag. Holy cross-dressing psychopaths, Batman!

Bulldog - I'm going to check out Bucket of Blood. I'm not sure if that's it, but it sounds right. The funny thing is, my father always talks about seeing that movie at the drive-in as a double-feature with 2000 Maniacs when dating my mother.

Javi - OMG!! I sure that's it! The thing about the mannequin sounds exactly like the scene I remember! Now I just have to see if I can find a copy...

Mister Matt, you're in luck! Deep Discount Dvd has 'Don't Open The Door' DVD for just $5.99! I'm about to order 'Camp' and 'Spellbound', I might just order a copy of that movie as well. :)

I'm afraid I'll have to get this one. Thank goodness it's so cheap, but I can't wait to see it again.
