Eric Hinkle What are we even looking at? bgbear_rnh reminds me of “The Tingler” Flangepart Me too. But it’s color, so… Eric Hinkle I can see it, but it looks more to me like someone just had their spine yanked out. The Rev. This is from the 4th Silent Night, Deadly Night movie, also known as (The) Initiation which was a completely unrelated movie they slapped that title on. I only know this because we watched it at Sandy’s one time. I don’t know if the movie’s confusing or I just wasn’t paying much attention, but despite that it’s not completely awful. Clint Howard is always fun, and there’s some pretty icky stuff thrown in with all the cult goings-on. Related: Last year I watched the first three of the series in a row. I’d seen the first one before, and enjoy it (mostly) unironically. I was shocked to find out the second one is actually meant to be a comedy, which means “Garbage day!” was not nearly as jarring as seeing the clip by itself would lead you to believe. I was even more shocked when I found it a lot more genuinely entertaining, rather than in the way we normally talk about around here, than I would ever have suspected. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not great, but it was fun enough that I’d watch it again without complaint. The third one is similar plot-wise to Friday the 13th VII: The New Blood, even going so far as to make the once-hilariously maniacal slasher a boring, silent killer that manages to be less emotive than Jason. Bill Moseley is wasted as said killer, the whole thing drags, and the only memorable thing is the closing shot, which is a bizarre but oddly fitting send-off for the then-trilogy. Beckoning Chasm Has Clint Howard ever looked non-insane? Even on Star Trek I thought, Don’t trust that baby. Eric Hinkle By the by, thanks mostly to what I keep hearing you folks say about Dr. Who, I got and watched the infamous “Talons of Weng-Chiang”. I like it a lot, but when you accused the effects of being cheap, you weren’t kidding. Still, a GREAT show and I wish I’d seen more of Classic Who back in the day. So thanks for the recommendation. Ken_Begg Pyramids of Mars! My favorite Doctor Who story. Cullen Waters Pyramids of Mars is great. So is Ark in Space, Seeds of Doom, Planet of Evil — Anything with Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen, really. Gamera977 Yeah, those were some great episodes! Though I can’t say much of anything bad about any of the Tom Baker run. Not sure if I have any actual favorite but I love those above plus ‘Terror of the Zygons’ and ‘The Robots of Death’ as well. Beckoning Chasm “Genesis of the Daleks” is one of the best Dalek stories, though IMHO it didn’t need to be a six-parter. Wade Harrell I remember there was one of these where there were killer toys, one of which was the centipede/worm thing. Is that what this is? The Rev. I haven’t actually seen in, but the fifth one is subtitled The Toy Maker, and I’m guessing that is the one you’re talking about. That, too, is an unrelated movie they slapped the SN, DN name on. As noted above, this shot is from the fourth one in the series.
