    Cool Marco's creepy 1970s movies, selected from YouTube...

    Every afternoon during the late autumn/winter months, between 4 and 5pm, just as daylight fades and turns to darkness, I'll be posting details of a creepy, often bizarre, ghost or horror film I'm watching, from the 1970s, when many of that genre were made, selected from the crusty vaults of YouTube...

    So why not join me by watching it on the big screen of your Smart TV?

    Draw the curtains/turn off the lights, snuggle up beside the fire and pour yourself a glass or cup of something warm and comforting, whilst going back in time to an era where they knew what dark and creepy was all about, without the need for any special effects...

    Today's selection from the dank and musty caves of the macabre, is Gargoyles:

    Noted. I'll check that out.

    Well, Gargoyles was great! In the latter stages, it reminded me of an episode from the original Star Trek TV series, or an old Dr Who. If I'd watched that as a kid, I'd have had nightmares...

    Creepy factor: 7

    Anyone else got some good reccos for creepy/spooky films from the 1970s?

    Well, that was interesting!

    *Very*70s, in terms of the eerie soundtrack accompanying the film, which is one of the things I love in films from this decade, and that music was used to create tension and suspense, along with a rather 'dark' vibe throughout. Who needs special effects?

    Creepy factor: 6

    So what will be tomorrow's creepy film? Tune in and find out!

    Bought the DVD recently. I've seen it a couple of times. Some reckon it's Vincent Price's best film, could be right.
