    6:That was the old man who love kids and dogs? Will need a think.

    You typed two question 3s? Hated the fly films with the annoying Vincent Price. Frankenstein films are not my favs so characters or scenes do not remain in my mind. Will pass on that one too. Get back to you on the others asap staffslad. Yes the Beast has gone according to my friend Nugs but was replaced by the Pest from the West.


    1. Yes, the wall crumbling as the children probe Sanders' mind is striking.

    2. Yes, and agreed it is probably the best ghost film, along with The Haunting.

    3. Curse of the Fly, but no Price this time, though Carole Gray running through the woods in her undies is ample compensation.

    4. Not fire, but there is a fire that destroys Dracula's headquarters.

    5. It was Susan Denberg. There is a famous publicity shot of the Cush carrying Miss Denberg in her undies. I doubt if the Cush was entirely happy about having to do that as he was chivalrous to a fault.

    6. That's the one I am looking for--Cushing won an award for his portrayal.

    The Pest from the West? I must have missed that one . The trouble is that our media cry wolf about so many weather stories that when something serious is actually going to happen, no one takes them seriously.

    Remember now how the Count dies. Got stuck in the deadly bush from which Jesus crown of thorns were made. Very original about the only thing in this fizzer.

    The Cush character in TFTC was Grimswade or Grimsmead.. something like that.

    3. Synopsis: An ageing East European noblewoman discovers that a certain body fluid restores her beauty, but its effect is temporary and she needs to begin killing to secure a supply. What was the film? Did you reference this one? Do not recall seeing this. Sounds interesting.

    New ones.
    1: synopsis. The chasee eventually bursts from the woods onto the lawn of a stately home, where a group of people are enjoying afternoon tea. He approaches them and before he can utter a word he is has been shot dead. Name the film.

    2: Why was the Beast kept In The Cellar.

    3: Name the two female stars.

    4:Rocker Sting featured in an 80s Hammer like film. name it.

    5:Name the film from pic.


    Good luck staffslad. How was your weekend. I laid more grass and netted my fruit trees. So much fun.

    Yes, Dracula is lured into the hawthorn bushes and then Van Helsing stakes him using a broken fence post.

    In Tales from the Crypt, the Cush's character is Grimsdyke.

    The film about the East European noblewoman is Countess Dracula, based loosely on Elizabeth Bathory, who used her high position in the 16th century to torture girls and bathe in their blood, and is alleged to have had over 600 girls killed. Ingrid Pitt is the star of Countess Dracula and it was made by Hammer.

    I'll get on the case answering your quiz, Donald. My weekend was spent trying to sort out my wife's car with no success--have to get it scanned to see what the computer says is causing the problem.

    Here are my answers...



    1. I think it is The Beast must Die.

    2. Two old ladies imprison their brother in their cellar at the start of WWII to prevent him from being conscripted into the armed forces. If I remember correctly, their father had been conscripted in WWI and had been killed or injured psychologically and they are anxious their brother does not suffer the same fate. Unfortunately, they fail to free him when the war ends and he gradually goes insane.

    3. Beryl Reid and Dame Flora Robson.

    4. That would be The Bride.

    5. Circus of Horrors I believe.

    I misread your clues. Of course Countess Dracula with Ingrid Pitt. hawthorn bush did not know precise name. Forgot about the staking part. Grimsdyke.. I was half correct staffslad.

    Nothing wrong with these two old dears.. nothing that a labotomy would not fix.

    Absolutely correct, Donald, if they hadn't been looking after their brother so diligently, they'd probably have become politicians.

    Okay, look out for another quiz later today.

    3. Synopsis: A man and his girlfriend plot to scare the man's grandmother to death by trying to convince her that a youth revolution is taking place and old people are being killed. Name the film.

    4. In Twins of Evil, what was the name of the informal group headed by Peter Cushing's character that hunted down witches?
