C&L's Scary Movies Of The Night For Halloween

Never buy a doll that advertises there's a spirit trapped inside of it. Never! And we just added two more incredible horror stories too!

Every Halloween for the last three years I've been adding to my list of Top Horror movies of all time for Halloween.

In 2013, I posted C&L's Top 25 Horror Movies For Halloween. In 2014, C&L's Top 26-50 Horror Movies For Halloween. And in 2015, C&L's Top 60 Horror Movies For Halloween

Because of this insane election, I haven't had a chance to thoroughly vet my next choices.

So in honor of Halloween, I've posted a horror classic from 1975, that first appeared on our Saturday Night Chiller Theater.

There were many horror anthology films made for TV in the 70's, but this segment called "Amelia," starring Karen Black may be the best one of all. It's based on a great Richard Matheson story called "Prey," but was adapted for the Trilogy of Terror horror film.

Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World wrote, "The third segment in this trilogy is arguably the scariest piece ever crafted under the made-for-TV label."

Never buy a doll that advertises there's a spirit trapped inside of it. Never!

I'm sure you can guess what happens, but not the ending.

And as a bonus, I'm also re-posting another incredible horror segment from the Italian master, Mario Bava!


It's called "A Drop Of Water."

Outside of The Haunting, which also was released in 1963, this story (originally penned by Chekhov) called "A Drop of Water" from Mario Bava's trilogy of terror movie "Black Sabbath," scared me as much as anything I'd ever seen at the time.

His use of sound is incredible.

I wouldn't advise stealing anything off a dead medium's body!

Have fun, enjoy and Happy Halloween!

UPDATED: Bonus!!!


In keeping with horror anthologies, 1945's "Dead of Night," is considered by many critics as being one of the greatest horror movies ever made. I chose the Ventriloquist's Dummy to scare you with tonight!

The NY Times wrote: "Michael Redgrave is most disturbing as the mad ventriloquist."
