    I would have to say, House on the Haunted Hill, featuring Vincent Price.

    IMO. If it ain't black & white, it ain't old.

    IMO. If you're born after 1952, it ain't old.

    The word "old" must be subjective to you youngsters.

    Here's what my dictionary defines old as:

    You remember getting the mail twice a day.
    The milk man delivering milk to your door.
    Adding coal to the furnace.
    Walking 3 miles to school uphill, both ways.
    2 cents for a carton of school milk and .25 cents for the school lunch.
    A neighborhood cobbler.
    Husband one income household.
    Having indoor plumbing.
    What was I just writing about?

    I was a kid, we only had a Black and White TV, so that was how I saw it when I saw this, though it was shot in color. The strange music score and sound effects alone were enough to scare the bejeesus outta me, but throw in a Robot, a strange planet, weird technology and an invisible monster, and it was terrifying to me.

    Forbidden Planet....yeah, it scared the stuffins outta me as a young kid, and just the music alone today brings back an instant memory of terror.....

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    The Fly (1958) --- "Help Me, Help Me!". Of course I am talking about the original but the newer one with Jeff Goldblum was pretty good as well.

    John Carpenter's remake of "The Thing".........

    The part when the guy that died on the table opened his chest and chopped the docs' arms off was too much........ As was the part when they torched the monster, only to have his head separate from the burning body, sprout spider legs and antennae from the severed head and start skittering away........

    Going back a few more decades, Frankenstein scared us as kids.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Misery was better as a book than as a movie, same with The Shining.
    My SIL gave me Misery to read when I was in the hospital with a broken leg (compound fracture, infected...bad).
    I felt the writers pain when the nurse hobbled him!
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    This was a SCARY movie. I liked the original thing as well.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
