I've quite enjoyed "Island Of Terror" with Peter Cushing. That's 1966, very decent creepy creature feature.

Into the '70's, I always throw out Black Christmas and Rituals. Dig in!

Only about 60 years worth of films to choose from.....

I used to assume that pretty much everyone has seen the classic classics (Karloff Frankenstein, Lugosi Dracula...etc) but I really don't think that's the case anymore. I don't know that any film is 'essential' but they are cornerstones.

If you're actually looking for chessy stuff I would suggest the MST3K collections. The dvds used to give you the option to watch the original film without the guys, I don't know if they do that anymore though.

Oh don't get me wrong. I used to watch some when I was a lil girl with my Granny. But I don't know which they were at this point. I just remember loving them and that's how I got into it basically.

I know you said pre-70's but in case you haven't checked out the thread and seeing as how you're a zombie fan I gotta say watch Shock Waves if you haven't seen it.

Yeah, solid call there, Floyd. I would personally watch Shock Waves before checking out Dead Snow. Nothing wrong with it, but Shock Waves just owns when it comes to evil atmosphere.

Speaking of Vegas....


(CNN) -- You can already gamble at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, and soon you may be able to buy a bottle of wine, or something stronger, as you're waiting to pick up your luggage after a flight.

Commissioners in Clark County, which owns the airport, on Tuesday moved one step closer toward approving a liquor store at the airport's south baggage claim area by voting to seek out applications from parties interested in running such a facility.

The store would sell beer, wine and spirits "for off-site consumption only," according to the proposal.

Many of the country's airports already have bars, but if approved, this would be the only liquor store operating inside a U.S. airport, said Randall Walker, the county's director of aviation.

Outside the United States, many airports do have stores where passengers can buy duty-free items, including liquor, upon arrival, he added.

"We're struggling just like everybody else with our revenues," Walker said, calling the liquor store a potential new source of money.

He estimated it could bring in $400,000 to $600,000 annually for the airport.

Many of the commissioners were impressed. Chris Giunchigliani called it a "unique idea," and Tom Collins also gave it a thumbs up.

"We're different, and it's about tourism, and it's about making money, and it's about getting our economy turned around," Collins said.

But Commissioner Steve Sisolak said he wanted to have more input from the community on the issue, citing the frequent presence of children and families in baggage claim.

"I personally don't know if it's appropriate," Sisolak added.

Open containers are legal in the Las Vegas airport today, Walker said. Bars and restaurants don't encourage customers to leave their premises with alcoholic drinks but people won't get arrested if they do, Walker said.

"We don't want to have rowdy, unruly passengers at the airport, obviously that's not good for anybody," Walker said.

Any problems would be dealt with by the airport's team of police officers, he added.

The airport has a cigar store in the arrivals area, but has had no problems with people violating its no-smoking policy, Walker said.

Visitors already know the Sin City facility is unique.

McCarran is one of only two airports in the country to have slot machines -- the other is in Reno, Nevada.

I'm surprised they don't already have one in there. I'm still mega shocked they took out the smoking rooms.

I find the part about "for off-site consumption only" funny in alot of ways.

As far as recommended films go, if you haven't seen the 1970's originals then "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Hills Have Eyes", "Last House On The Left", "The Omen", "The Fog", "The Wicker Man", and also "The Exorcist", "Count Yorga, Vampire", "The Sentinel", "Asylum", "The Changeling", The Dr. Phibes movies, "The Car", "Let's Scare Jessica To Death", "Martin", "Black Christmas", "The Other", "Psychomania", "Legend Of Hell House", "I Drink Your Blood", and foreign horror like "Requiem For A Vampire", "The House With Laughing Windows", "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie", The Blind Dead series (zombies!...kinda), "Who Can Kill A Child?", and "Vampyrs".

The 60's have Hitchcock's original "Psycho" (#1 priority), "Blood Feast", "Burn Witch Burn", "Rosemary's Baby", "The Haunting" (1963), "Dracula, Prince Of Darkness", "The Devil Rides Out", "Black Sunday", "Mr. Sardonicus", Coffin Joe's "At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul", "Repulsion", "Peeping Tom", and "Carnival Of Souls".

Out of room, so "Curse Of The Demon"(1957).
