The Phantom of the Opera (21st Century Film Corporation, 1989)
I saw this version of Gaston Leroux's story in the theater - and haven't seen it since. I remember enjoying it - and I wouldn't mind checking it out again one of these days! They sure wanted you to remember who Robert Englund had been playing the last five years though, didn't they?
The Mummy's Tomb (Universal Studios, 1942)
I don't care if he's the slowest movie monster ever; I don't care if Lon hated these movies and legendarily showed up to work on them so drunk that alcohol would seep from his pores and melt off Jack Pierce's makeup - leading to him eventually wearing a Don Post style rubber mask - I LOVE MUMMY MOVIES - and that goes double for Universal's five Mummy flicks!
Survival Run (Film Ventures International, 1980)
This is a hard-to-find action flick from my golden year of 1979 that I didn't watch on Showtime in the early 80's for some reason - wish I had now! Six teens - including one of those pesky Van Pattens - go out for some motorcycle fun in the desert, and soon find themselves battling drug smugglers led by Peter Graves and Ray Milland! What's not to love?
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
