Close, it's a Zsa Zsa Gabor Flick, but, it's a wonderful piece of 1950s SciFi Cheez. Botchano
Oh, yeah! I know that one.

I believe that was the inspiration for Amazon Women On The Moon.

I believe I've heard that, yes.

And a prime example of Men are From Mars, and Women are From Venus

Thanks for the reminder!

I wonder if they'll run Night of Dark Shadows anytime soon.

The latter is not very faithful to the TV show, as I recall, but works as a spooky ghost story in its own right. And it has Kate Jackson and Lara Parker!

I once visited the mansion where the movies were filmed. It's only a few hours north of NYC . . . .

You're welcome.

Not that I know of, unfortunately.

It's even closer to me. I'd love to pay a visit there.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Well. Interesting. I guess we can classify that as a "Historical Curiosity." Certainly an early example of the "let's kill everyone just cuz we can" sub-genre.

The locations and sets were wonderfully New England Gothic. Loved the abandoned houses and tunnels and the empty pool and so forth-- did the series ever explain why the Collins Family let their property deteriorate so badly? I seem to remember one TV plot that involved somebody living in an entire wing of the house that had been closed off and abandoned.

Unfortunately, even beyond the fact that it was disconnected from the TV series, this movie was pretty weak. The script was borderline incoherent (what exactly was the point of that opening sequence with David?) and Dan Curtis was not exactly at his directorial best. And there were a few inconsistencies along the way: Barnabas seemed more worried about the tiny cross on Maggie's neck than the big-ass one hanging over the bed. And I think there are at least three new vampires out there somewhere that were unaccounted for.

It's too bad they didn't write something that was consistent with the show, like the producers of Batman did around the same time. Oh, well....

And you could just tell that Curtis loved being able to use all the copious blood he couldn't show on TV.

"No more Standards and Practices! Bring on the gore!"

(I'm almost surprised he didn't try to squeeze in some Hammer-style nudity while he was at it!)

on the series it was stated Collinwood was the only property that didn't have a mortgage. i think Liz also had to buy Roger's share of the fishing fleet too since Roger wasted his inheritance.

I never had a chance to really see Dark Shadows and I watched some of that movie last night and I had no clue what was going on.

I can see that. Aside from maybe Barnabas, the movie didn't really bother to explain who the characters were or what their relationships to each other were; I guess they just assumed that everybody had already watched the TV show . . . .

Yes, and I love that incredibly fake-looking, red-paint blood.

Maybe he couldn't get anyone to cooperate. I wouldn't mind seeing Kathryn Leigh Scott nude, but I don't think she ever did anything but TV so she probably wasn't up for that sort of thing.

Thanks. I actually have most of those on DVD, but I may tape the Stooges. I don't remember it as being very good, but it's probably been close to thirty years since I've seen it. I'd like to see it again.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I'm looking forward to La Jetée. I didn't know when I'd ever get to see it. For those who don't know, it's the short that 12 Monkeys is based on.
