:frankie: IT LIVES! The Return of the Challenge that Wouldn't Die! :consume:

Your creepy challenge, if you dare, is to dig up a classic horror film from 1980 or before, watch it, and report back... if you survive!

My inspiration for this thread is because I have recently accquired several of the Hammer Studios films, as well as other classic horror, including some of the MGM Midnite Movies discs. Some of these films featured Christopher Lee, Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, and others.

--

What is Grouchoís Movie Challenge? Its mission is simple: let us all, as a forum, work to seek out films that might otherwise slip our radar. Each week, anybody who wants to participate will see a film within the guidelines, and return back to the forum to report on the film they saw. Itís easy, itís fun, and everybody can participate. Itís not a trivia contestÖitís not a gameÖitís merely a way we can all be exposed to new avenues of film appreciationÖor at the very least see a good flick or two.

I was depressed, because I don't get TCM, and I couldn't think of anyone who could record it for me, but then I found out that this is in one of the A&C DVD collections from Universal. :D
