I knew what you meant Uncle Mike, just agreeing with you in a rather too pointed way.

I remember seeing the Boogens when I was a kid and it scared the Hell outta me.  That's some old school fun there.

Don't ruin Boogens for me yet.  Haven't gotten the time to see it.

I'm presently working my way through all 3 Seasons of the Night Gallery.

The plot of Boogens sounds a little like that Masters of Horror Episode "The Damned Thing."

I love old horror movies two of my favorite gems are "Dark Night of the Scarecrow" & " Don't be Afraid of the Dark.  There was a time made for TV movies were just as scary (if not more) than what was on at the movies.  I still have childhood memories of seeing those 2 movies when I was young -too young in fact.

Someone sent me the entire first Season of "Friday the 13th the series" yesterday.   "Werewolf" the series with Chuck Conner is my next shipment.  

I get a neat feeling of nostalgia wathching all this old stuff.  My oldest son loves watching horror movies with me.  I wonder what kind of damage I'm causing his young mind.  Anyway, I watched them with my dad too when I was little - I turned out ok, right? :freak:

I traded for it.
You would be surprised what dvd collectors out there have.  The hard part is finding the people who have with what you want.

I love trading obscure movies and tv shows with people.

It's on 7 DVDs like 29 episodes.  I only have Season 1.  It'll take forever to get around to watching it.

I just got a transfer copy of "Humanoids from the Deep" (1980) version.  It is a great classic B-movie.  I love the whole Deep One feel to it.  Even though they explain the issue as a genetic mutation.


You don't need a transfer copy, it's available to buy.

Friday the 13th was one of my favorite TV shows as a teenager.  I remember Saturday nights watching War of the World TV show then it was Friday the 13th the Series and then Elvira Mistress of the Dark.  

That brings back some great memories,

Thanks for the link Gauntman!  Are these legit copies?  Are they just recorded from tv?

Ahhhh, the good old days of watching the War of the Worlds tv series (the first season at least) and Friday the 13th!   :)   Brings back good memories...

At least they have War of the Worlds out on dvd.  I didn't realize how bad some of the episodes (okay okay most!) are until I watched them again.  Still, the couple of good ones make up for the bad ones.   :wink:

That second season got way out there didn't it?  Turned into a post apocalyptic thing which they never really explain to well.  Tons of holes in the whole series but it was simple sci-fi fun.

Do you also remember Freddy's Nightmares, The Dark Room, Tales from the Crypt and Monsters, these were also staples in my splatter punk teen years.

I remember The Dark Room and Tales from the Crypt was one of my favourite tv shows out there!  I recently bought all (except the last) of the seasons on dvd.  Had a great time watching them all again - it had been so long that I'd forgotten what really happened in them...   :)

The second season of War of the Worlds - I couldn't get into it.  Kind of a neat idea, but I didn't like it and pretty much just stopped watching it after a few episodes.  What ever did happen on that season?   :?

Tell you the truth I don't even remember.  I haven't seen the 2nd season since it aired originally.  I want to say that the daughter and some alien hybrid fell in love and then everyone saw the futileness of the fight and decided to live in peace or some crap like that.  I want to say that the black guy and the mom ended up dying by the end of the season but like I said I can't remember.

Count me in.  Great show with interesting storylines.  You wouldn't know it from the title.
