Halloween often equals settling in with a huge bowl of popcorn and watching really bad B-movies of the horror/creepy/science fiction genre. With that in mind, the Ear went online to find some freebies to watch.
For a collection of horror movies you’ve never heard of, like “Tomb of Torture,” check out http://tinyurl.com/hallohorror1.
Then there’s Archive.org, which has a plethora of pithy titles, like “Bloody Pit Of Horror” and “The Screaming Skull” (a blood-curdling gem the Ear recalls from when she was but an Earlet). Bonus bonbon: The Archive movies can either be watched online (not great quality), or downloaded.
Want to see Astoria’s Vampira’s (Maila Nurmi) very worst movie — and, arguably, the worst horror movie ever made — 1959s “Plan 9 From Outer Space,” also starring Bela Lugosi of Dracula fame? Go to http://tinyurl.com/ughplan9 to punish yourself. A screen shot of Vampira from the film is shown.
Speaking of Bela Lugosi, how about watching 1940s “The Devil Bat” (http://tinyurl.com/battybela)? He plays a doctor who creates giant bats to murder those who have done him wrong. Have a flapping good time.
