They Came From Somewhere Else

Does anyone remember the Channel 4 series 'They Came From Somewhere Else' that was on tv on Saturday nights, in July-August 1984? It was set in a quiet suburban town, where strange events kept happening. It was quite gruesome in places, with people's heads exploding, & another character being eaten ...

I was happy to see 'Cry Of The Banshee' again. It's not quite as good as 'The Blood On Satan's Claw', that's set in the same period, but definitely worth watching. Very surprised that it hasn't been on tv as much as Vincent Price's other films, but he' not very sympathetic in this one. As I said he ...

I'm going to answer my own question here, as I've found the film I was looking for. It's called 'Cry Of The Banshee'. It stars Vincent Price (Who else :)!), who plays another witchfinder general type character, who angers the leader of a coven who places a curse on Vincent's family. The curse is in ...

Has to be the house that bled to death for me :D Same here. I actually remember watching The House That Bled To Death at the time. My other favourite is Charlie Boy. Next for me are, Children Of The Full Moon & Rude Awakening. Again, I watched the latter episodes. The worst story in my opinion was ...

At the time the Hammer House of Horror was broadcast on ITV, I was 10. I'm now 41. I only ever watched four episodes - Growing Pains, Rude Awakening, The House That Bled To Death & Children Of The Full Moon. I always remembered how creepy the music was too. For years after I looked for the videos. T...

On the buses movies

My favourite film is 'Holiday On The Buses' because I stayed at Pontins - Prestatyn Sands where it was filmed, in 1985 & 86. I love the opening shot of the camp, with the Pontins sign on the reception/amenities building, the swimming pool & the shots outside the chalets. Brings back some very happy ...

Forgotten 60's or 70's horror film

I have a question that members might be able to help with. 10 - 15 years ago I watched a horror film which was set in the same era as 'Blood On Satan's Claw', & I can't remember what it was called. I don't remember much, apart from the ending but it's all about a curse, I think, & that the victims w...

30 Year old problem

Hi Steve. I guess as it's been a couple of years since you posted your question, that you've now found out what the film was. In the event that you haven't, the film is 'Blood on Satan's Claw', also known as 'Satan's Skin' in America. Patrick Wymark, Linda Hayden, Anthony Ainley, Michelle Dotrice & ...
