People should keep in mind we have 2 types of horror films, moral, and post-moral. The post-moral ones (mainly) began with Night/Living Dead, and most since then are this type. Texas Chainsaw, Friday 13th, etc. Not an original thought with me, but I do agree with it, and that this shows trend of how decadent society has become since the late 1960s. You did have exceptions like Psycho, but those are mighty few. Sorry to get so serious, but this seems time to mention it.🎃

Oh my! Actually I have seen it before and enjoyed it, however I can’t imagine why I would watch it with a title like that. I’m wondering if you recommended it.🤔

Well I would recommend to see it and probably gave it out in the long, long long past.

Come one come all to the MeTv Friday Night Movie Quiz.
Where everyone can take a guess or make comments to other quizzers.
There will be extra bonus movies for just coming by. Including entertainment for all. Feel free to ask questions, copy movie links and just plain join in the fun via communication. The MQ will be up until the movie is guessed and an hour to look over and pick out what you wish. Have fun doing so. There are no wrong answers but the first one to guess the correct movie gets their names put up for getting it correctly. See you @ Killer Quiz from Outer Space. Can you score an A+ on this B-movie quiz?
9 P.M. Sharp (Friday) CT. Stop by .
Good luck and enjoy

Days when outlaw gangs pretty much ran things in town including the town Sheriff. In this movie he is run out of town instead of shot down in the streets like most. The town folks none too happy about their situation hire two gunmen to lay down the law and keep peace and order. These two have their act down pat. Outlaws rebel and not about to give in unless they be 6 foot under. Which also brings us to one of the Outlaws former men also wishes to stop this lawlessness. I can say that the cast in this movie are ominous. Block buster movies for years and some in the best TV Shows.

The name of this movie makes it sound like another genre but it's really the name of this town. One cast member has played many a movie and also on Star Trek (tv Show). The 3 lead stars have played bad guy , good guy and other types of Iron Clad movies from dramas, to Noir greats. You know their names like the back of your hand.

I know one thing for sure. There's gonna be a lot trouble here and there. Where it leads is anybody's guess. Best get your quick draw down pat or buy daisy's ahead of time to plant.

Note: on coming attractions. Again I've been privy to not only Top movies but ones that may be up to 14G in quality. That means instead of that 480P, 720P they will be 1080P and better. Just received a one of a kind Uploader touting such cinema. Proof will be in the pudding. Also means I've got a lot of work to do. Placing and also putting them on my lists and onto your viewing. Most likely starting next week and into future MQ for quizzers.

We have that movie on file. Can show it anytime (after Halloween). Also a 12G movie file of The 10 Commandments.
KJExpress texasluva 9 months ago
I have The Ten Commandments on DVD. Classic! It took forever before my mom finally let me stay up late and watch the whole thing on tv. I believe they still show it around Easter or Passover.

On the contrary, Friday 13th has usually been good to me for some reason 🤭 Probably coz I’m not superstitious.

Thanks for re-posting everything, Tex. I have looked at it all now so you can go ahead and delete it. I remember seeing ads for some of those schlocky horror movies. To think that some of them were rated G! Good movie selection and I must tell you that "To Kill a Mockingbird" is my favorite movie. I also love the novel and re-read it every few years. Thanks again for re-posting! 👋🤓

62% similar. I never thought Rosemary’s Baby was scary; I just found it very sad. I felt really sorry for her. As for The Exorcist, I might have found it scary if I hadn’t heard Richard Pryor’s 3 minute parody of it before I saw the movie.

93% similar. I don't care for horror films, so I mostly answered "scary then, scary now." 😲

68% similar- I have all these movies though did not re-watched for years until recently on The Exorcist and Alien Series. It was just something about them that I dreaded. Halloween (first one) the opening credits are awesome and movie pretty good too. The Thing with Kurt Russell (1982) was great. Also Jaws and Psycho are favorites.

81% similar. Not a big fan of horror films. I prefer psychological thrillers - much scarier, in my opinion.

Did you ever watch Premonition with Sandra Bullock? Haunting!
