Wow, not that many. Maybe 15, with another four or so being very familiar, but I just can't scratch up an answer for them. Do I get credit each time they showed Young Frankenstein?

I got 20 (and a couple of them I'm not totally positive about)
  1. Frankenstein's Daughter
  2. Frankenstein
  3. Young Frankenstein
  4. The Brain From Planet Arous
  5. a Godzilla (but not the original )
  6. Dracula (the original)
  7. The Giant Mantis (the only)
  8. The Creeping Horror?
  9. Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell
  10. The Fiend Without a Face
  11. The Horror of Spider island?
  12. I Married a Monster From Outer Space
  13. The Hypnotic Eye (a bit of a give-away that one as the title card was in the video)
  14. The Beast From 20,00 Fathoms
  15. The Killer Shrews
  16. The Manster
  17. Plan 9 From Outer Space
  18. Attack of the 50' Woman
  19. The Colossal Man
  20. The Incredible Shrinking Man
What did you get that I didn't, Bill?

Well, you didn't mention The Wolf Man or The Fly, but I have to think that was just an oversight on your part. Other than that, there was an Abbot and Costello Meets something or other movie, and, although you got this one, isn't it The Creeping Terror, not Horror? Either way, you still smoked me.

I wasn't sure it from was The Wolfman or one of the sequels, I bow to your superior knowledge and and I don't think I have ever seen an Abbot and Costello movie. But The Fly? - doh!

I also rescind, redact (or whatever) any disparaging remarks I may have made about the 1981 Clash of the Titans earlier in this thread. I have just watched it for the first time in many many years and was surprised at how damn good it was. I shall treasure it especially for this moment of sublime comedy between Maggie Smith and Claire Bloom, as the Goddesses Thetis and Hera, discussing Zeus' womanising:

Quote:
Thetis:
So many women, and all these transformations
and disguises he invents in order to seduce
them. Sometimes a shower of gold, sometimes
a bull or a swan. Why, once he even tried to
ravish me disguised as a cuttlefish.

Hera:
Did he succeed?

Thetis
:
Certainly not.

I really don't see how re-watching or not will make a lick of a difference; the mere idea is so gloriously bad that it HAS to be good.

I caught up with this one a couple of months ago via the medium of a stupidly cheap charity shop VHS tape. It's awful. One of those movies that probably plays better in your head than in front of your eyes.

3 years later EDIT: I was wrong! I've watched it again since and it's a funny, weird, subversive and somewhat great little film. No idea why I didn't see it the first time I watched it.

(Apart from The Silence of the Hams - that was dreadful).
And Candy ( 1968 ). Not good.
