Weekend Cinema (October horror continues!)

Long ago, CATV brought wonders of programming that we didn’t get on the Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo stations — like the South Bend UHF station that ran the “Double Creature Feature” on Saturday nights. The Screaming Skull was one of the scarier movies they showed — so it seemed at the time. Looking at the description, I wasn’t even sure it was the same movie until the first scene… nobody ever got that hokey before or since…

Enjoy! I recommend a fine wine, perhaps Thunderbird or Mad Dog 20/20, to go with this cinematic cheese.

  1. Hiya FAR.

    You know I've got both those movie site you talked about bookmarked. I just can't seem to get into a movie when it's that small of a viewing area. I wish I could figure out how to enlarge it. Any ideas?

  4. Hey guys, glad you're enjoying it....

    Fam, on the left side of any archive.org video page, there's a list of links for different sizes & formats. Try downloading the 256K MPEG4 format under the "Play/Download" section; those tend to be fairly decent quality. If your video player doesn't let you enlarge the video while playing, download Quicktime for Windows & use that.

    If you can let the download run for a while (they're like 2-3GB), grab the MPEG2 version. MPEG-2 is the format they use for DVDs.

Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
