Yes, it is another Cheesy Movie Sunday. I guess I never declared that as a category, but I do often watch movies on Sunday and my favorites are the cheesy ones, so… My only regret is the lack of alliteration, but I can’t worry about that now. My husband, Steven, and I began our day with a couple of Mohawk Valley adventures, which may form the subject of articles for Mohawk Valley Living magazine or future blog posts. Now we are comfortably home, in sweats, and watching movies. We began with The Screaming Skull (1958), which I believe I wrote a blog post about at some point.
The movie is on our DVD collection of 50 Horror Classics. Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959) was on the same disc, so we continued with that.
I thought one character in the movie looked like Victor Buono, who played Bette Davis’ father in Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964). I might have liked to go on to that one, but I was more into shorter movies today. That is one virtue of your really cheesy features: they are in general short. We did want something that moved a little faster, and Steven suggested Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959). Say what you will about this movie, it is NOT the worst ever made. It holds your interest and moves right along. I say, go, Ed Wood Jr.!
As you may have guessed, I am into Halloween movies. Well, the Halloween season does begin after Labor Day, does it not? It does in my house.
We are continuing our viewing adventures with King Kong (1933). What will come next? Who cares! Tomorrow’s Monday; I’m having fun today!
