Son of Spooky

Good Evening!

These are some of my favorite spooky movies, if I'm not online I'm probably watching these flicks... send an Owl Post - I'll get back to you!

Halloween Tips from Quicksilver Message List: 1) Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out. 2) As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell. 3) Do not take ANYTHING from the dead. 4) If you find a town that looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

Joe Dante on THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER
A classic piece of Americana. William Dieterle's haunting fantasy is that rarity, a major studio art film. It's had a rocky ride over the decades but is now available uncut on DVD after years of neglect, recuts and spotty distribution under a myriad of titles, including All That Money Can Buy, Here is a Man, A Certain Mr. Scratch, and Daniel and the Devil. As the Satan's smolderingly sexy consort, a pre-Cat People Simone Simon must have made quite an impression on Val Lewton. Alec Baldwin directed and starred in an updated remake in 2003, which was finally released in 2007 as Shortcut to Happiness with Baldwin's name removed. DIAL M FOR MURDER  *  1954

Conceived, written, and overseen by Wells himself as an adaptation of his own work, this megabudget production, the most ambitious ever from Korda’s London Films, is a triumph of imagination and technical audacity.

DVD details for The Night Stalker
[opening narration]

Carl Kolchak: This is the story behind the most incredible series of murders to ever occur in the city of Seattle, Washington. You never read about them in your local newspapers or heard about them on your local radio or television station. Why? Because the facts were watered down, torn apart, and reassembled...in a word, falsified.

Scifi Channel has regular showings of The Night Stalker
10 A.M.-4 P.M.

Dr. Gerrit Koets in "My Wicked, Wicked Ways... The Legend of Errol Flynn"
[Don Taylor 1985]

Gus Sands in "The Natural"
[Barry Levinson 1984] - see Robert Redford fanpage

Capt. Russ Peters in "The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell"
[Otto Preminger 1955]

Review: "Colonel Mitchell has seen too many trusted comrades die when he and they knew that their deaths were caused by the criminal negligence of his military superiors. Mitchell does the unthinkable. He goes public with his accusations and is court-martialed. The first half sets up this courtroom drama with sterling performances by Jack Lord, Elizabeth Montgomery, and Darren McGavin. As his friends die, you can sense that Mitchell;s iron-bound duty not to break the chain of command is beginning to rust."

The movie conveys the suggestion, but not the confirmation, that predictions made by Mitchell were on target. Had the top brass failed to relocate the hidden ammunition dump under the Pearl Harbor baseball diamond, the whole base, and island of Hawaii, would have been blown into the netherworld. When the attack began the Japanese continued to bomb the field, looking for the big hit. This is because, when the base was built, military construction employed Japanese labor. The workers knew where to drop bombs when they returned as zero pilots. Mitchell succeeded in protecting the most vulnerable area of the island, thank God, but he seldom receives credit for his heroism.

Darren McGavin - Kathie Browne McGavin's Official Home

The Night Stalker came into this world with a lot going for it and a few problems that were generally out of focus. Friday night at 9-10 has never been the most popular time slot in prime-time. In fact, it has been more of a death row, as McGavin preferred to call it, "It’s the armpit of the world. Everybody dies in that hour, on all networks."

McGavin had two years to ponder the show structure [Mercury and Saturn], and he thought it could be done. "We can make it fun," he said. "As for the horror side, we’re not going to show much. I don’t believe papier-mâché masks or rubber fins induce fear, so you’re not going to see much of the monsters, but you’ll see what he’s done, and the fear he creates in others."

Mrs. McGavin, actress Kathie Browne says, "He’s very, very close to Kolchak. The people who really love The Night Stalker love Kolchak because he never gives up. He’s fighting, always fighting. You can take the monsters and take them to be anything you want – the government, big business, corrupt officials. Their hero comes at the end, beaten up but ready to go on fighting another day. I think Darren has a lot of that in his own personality." (Quotes taken from The Night Stalker Companion, by Mark Dawidziak.)

Darren McGavin Birth Information

May 7, 1922        Destiny Path: 5 + 7 + 14 = 26/ 8
Spokane, Washington

Sun 16 Taurus
Mercury 0 Gemini conjunct Pleides

Vulcanus, Venus, Ain, and Aldebaran conjunct 7-8 Gem [references to the eye of the Bull, one of the four regents of heaven or archangel guardians.] This aspect may contribute to McGavin's fondness for his many star reporter/photographer characters. The eye represents both seeing and being seen.

The Night Stalker could often defend himself in a dark, dank, deserted place by using the flash on his pocket camera. Unfortunately, the film was often confiscated by the police before he could develop the picture. Kolchak often invited critics or skeptics [who don't like to be wrong] to 'see for themselves' and so was usually unable to salvage any tangable evidence of his paranormal encounters.

February 25, 2006        Curtain: 2 + 25 + 2006 = 17/ 8 Year
7:10 A.M. approximately, PST     Los Angeles, California

Number List 1-9
Trump VII and VIII
