    There is also a chubby guy in this movie who reminds me of Peter lorre even more than Peter lorre, and I had to watch the movie loads of times before i even believed it wasn't actually him

    I saw it once as a kid. I was in primary school, because I remember talking about it with a mate the next day. Even though I haven't seen it since (so I haven't cast an adults eye over it) it must have left an impression on me because I remember several scenes (probably incorrectly knowing what memory is like). I'd definitely give it another watch given the chance.

    Nope can't say as I have. At that point in time, and just prior, I was reading the Doc Savage books pretty avidly and as I can be a little bit of a "snob" on occasion I wouldn't have even considered watching this then. In fact, this is the first I've heard of it. Based upon your all thumbs up I'll have to keep it on my radar.

    It worth a watch. It's a pity it's too overly camp for its own good. Buy it was done in an age when superhero's movies had to be 'camp', think flash Gordon and batman, before stuff like Indiana Jones and the batman of Michael Keaton came along. It's still worth a look though. Knowing how you like pulp big old, I'd say you'd appreciate it

    You probably remember the green snake scenes Paul, they're the most memorable and cool thing about the movie

    I've never heard of at least 95% of horror films that you mention on the forum, and this is another that I've never seen or heard of.

    Bluey it's not a horror, it's an action adventure movie

    cos I didn't rate it, as a yank did you see the smith and jones series? If you didn't you will realise that they were much better in that, and had different characters and comedy than this made for the foreign market cash-in rubbish

    also I'm ironically trying to avoid horrors in the run up to halloween, to prove that I do actually watch other sorts of movies to you bunch of whining pansies

    todays movie is 'the show' 2017

    a thriller with James franco and Famke jansenn, who I haven't heard from since the bond movie. Not a bad little movie this. An outspoken reality host comes up with the idea of a live suicides show , as a means of showing how precious life is. Unsurpisingly the show becomes a hit. What follows is basically a comment on the tacky nature of reality tv, sensationalism , modern day tv viewer stupidity and cruelty, and the total corruption of the host and his original ideas and motivations . Weave in a family and friends plot and you have a passable movie. Critics have both savaged and praised this movie in equal measure. Nothing startling original but an ok watch, it will appear to whoever it was on here who did a thread about reality tv a few weeks ago, I've forgot his/her name at the moment.

    You mean the tv series? Alias Smith and Jones? Maybe a couple of times. I don't watch much tv at all and never did. Funnily enough, I've only NOW , in the last 5 or 10 years or so, become somewhat interested in Westerns.

    Have a Halloween movie themed thread in another forum I go to and this is very high on most lists there. I haven't seen it but I bet our own Master of Macabre has! So @squeal mold is it worth watching?

    I thought everybody had seen it!!! Definitely yes, old mick Traylor is one of my favourites, and I've mentioned this movie on here many times over the years. It really gives a sense of the enormousness of the ozzie outback and just how much you can be lost and in trouble. It's also goodly gory in parts to. Part two is also good fun, and features him battling his old traditional ozzie rival, a Brit!

    I am v surprised you haven't seen it. Watch it soon, and let me know what you think of it to
