FOUND: Made For TV Horror Movies of the 1970's/early 1980's

Being a chick who is found of all sorts of horror movies, I have to confess that I'm particularly fond of the made for tv horror movies of the 1970's and early 1980's, the golden era you could say of this genre. And I'm not alone in feeling this way as I have discovered many other women who cherish these movies. The question you are probably asking is why do these movies appeal to the feminine soul? Let me explain.

Women liking horror films isn't usually seen as your typical sort of thing. But yet these particular horror films seem to attract women by the droves. I think that there are several reasons for this.

One reason would be that most women are extremely sensitive and tend to have low tolerance for scenes of extreme gore and violence. Because of the censorship restrictions of television, the writers are forced to be more creative and suggestive with the violence at hand. It has been said that implied violence is much more horrific than graphic violence. For example, in the brilliant Legend of Lizzie Borden, what really creates an overbearing sense of tension and horror is not actually the murders themselves, but rather the preparation that Lizzie does before each killing. What we have is a woman with a sweet exterior masking a raging psychotic killer. Another example would be The Longest Night. A kidnapped girl girl is buried alive for ransome, and the horror arises out of the situation of being buried alive, with a limited amount of air to breath, and water to drink. And what she is given will run out with-in a certain amount of time, which makes it vital that the police investigating the kidnapping get to her before her life giving resources are exhausted. It was this type of storytelling that made director Alfred Hitchcock the master of suspense, and it's funny to see how many TV writers and directors took a few pages out of Hitchcock's note book and applied it to their productions.

Another reason is due to the budget restrictions, the number of actors and actresses was kept to a minimum. And also due to keeping the costs low, instead of expensive action scenes, you got more scenes with the characters interacting with each other, relationships were more fully developed. Many of the movies, while maintaining the horror themes, had a healthy dose of issues that women could relate to, such as sibling rivalry, romance troubles, moving to a new home, and bratty children. For example, Conspiracy of Terror gave us a husband and wife detective team who had an interfaith marriage, and the husbands family was not at all receptive of the wife, a problem that is still very familiar in this day and age. Also, the very scary Home for the Holidays, presented a very real example of sibling rivalry between four daughters, a step mother and a dying father. Many women can really relate to the conflict between the sisters, in so much that one sister stayed at home caring for the father, and she in turn really resented the sisters who got out of the house. This situation is far from fantastic, and in fact is very real, as anyone with siblings can attest to. Next we have Bad Ronald, which really explores the anxiety of having to move into a new home. In this case, the horror is very real when the percieved ghost turns out to be a mentally ill young man. But the reason everyone seems to love and remember Bad Ronald is that the family, like us all, is very vunerable in their new home, as the anxiety of having to adjust to any change of envirement is in all of us, thus it's universal, as so many of the themes of these films were. Other films on the subject of moving include The Strange And Deadly Occurence, Crowhaven Farm, and Dark Secret Of Harvest Home.

With these movies, you were also guaranteed a healthy dose of familiar TV faces. Whether it was Ron Howard's dad from Happy Days, Tom Bosley, to Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, it was almost guarenteed that you would come across a familiar face or two in almost every TV movie. In fact, such actors as Richard Basehart, Ray Milland, Raymond Burr, Andy Griffith, Lou Ayres, David Jansen, Peter Graves, Clint Walker, Dean Jagger, William Shatner, and actresses such as Patty Duke Astin, Kim Darby, Balinda Montgomery, Elizabeth Montgomery, Myrna Loy, Shelly Winters have brought real star power to these mini screen productions, and helped to give them a real sense of class.

These are just some examples why I believe women are drawn to these type movies. If you have any special memories of watching these films, either with your older/younger sisters, watching them late at night, or with your mom on a cold day snacking on popcorn and hot chocolate, let us know, we would love to hear your stories and be glad to print them on the site.

SOONER OR LATER (Aired on NBC 3/25/79) Gross cheese has a 13 year old girl sprucing herself up and making herself look older in order to attract a rock idol she adores.Generally the type of plot used by pornographers. Filmed in Yonkers, NY. With Barbara Feldon and Judd Hirsch. ORDER

STAR WARS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (Aired on NBC 11/27/78) Without a doubt, this program is an example of the cocaine binging that occured among corporate TV executives, not to say that the "In a galaxy, far, far away" look in Carrie Fisher's eyes wasn't also being caused by external stimuli. This is one of the most anxiety enducing programs you will ever sit through, two full hours that feels like three and a half days. If you were a fan of the original Star Wars, this program could have killed that flat. So bad even George Lucas disowns it. With a drunken Art Carney, super lesbian Bea Arthur doing her "Mame" impression, and Harvey Korman, fresh out of work from the Carol Burnett show. Mark Hamill has to be filmed from angles to hide his disfigured mug, and the only one really trying is Harrison Ford. If you find Saturday Night Live re-runs to be funny, than this is for you. With original broadcast commercials. UPGRADE! Better quality, easier on the eyes. ORDER

STONESTREET: WHO KILLED THE CENTERFOLD MODEL? (Aired on NBC 1/16/77) A female private eye goes undercover as a porn actress in order to track down the missing daughter of an industrialist.

SUMMER (Aired on PBS 1981) Diane Lane stars in the story of a seventeen-year-old girl's early disillusionment with life followed by her shift into reality. She is orphaned at 17 and adopted by a man who is so drawn to her he decides to make her his wiife. She takes a lover which in turn causes all sorts of problems. Very sleazy subject matter for PBS and Great Performances. We ever get a scene of Miss Lane topless. Worth it for that scene alone. ORDER

SURVIVE THE NIGHT (Aired on TV 1/19/93) This is a very interesting and taunt suspense drama that is also very unintentionally funny. Stephanie Powers and Helen Shaver find themselves trapped in Gravesend, the Bronx while trying to return home from a holiday visit in Brooklyn. Turns out a vicious gang is on the perowl and they'd love to get their hands on Stephanies teenage daughter (Kathleen Robertson). The film starts to rear a comedic end when Stephanie becomes avenger and stages some "Home Alone" style pranks against the gang. Also, the concept of an intergrated gang is idiotic, gags are usually one culture and rarely have members of a completely different nature. The idea that this intergrated gang in "the Bronx" is run by a white guy is completely idiotic, but for the politically correct amoung us I guess they had to make it this way. Anyhow, this flick is very rare as is only available via a Dutch VHS in English with Dutch subs. Buy the premise, buy the flick...ORDER

A TASTE OF EVIL (Aired on ABC 10/12/71) A young woman, who was paped as a child, leaves the mental institution only to discover that someone is trying to frighten her back into insanity.

This is the further adventures of Roster Cogburn as he battles bad guys and contends with a teenage girl hell bent on changing his ways. Certainly Warren Oates, who is a great actor in his own right, really can't fill the shoes John Wayne filled for the original film, still, this flick is not a waste of time. Give it a shot. ORDER

TURN OF THE SCREW (Aired on the TV show Startime on 10/20/59) Here is the complete show as it was broadcast live in 1959 featuring the incredible Ingrid Bergman as the governess who doubts her own sanity as she confronts what she believes to be a ghost exuding an evil influence on two children in her care.

They agree to hunt for a murderer who has hidden from sight since the crime was committed.

THE UFO INCIDENT (Aired on NBC 10/20/75) A very moody drama about a New Hampshire couple (who happened to be interracial) who claimed to have been abducted by a UFO and examined by aliens.

ORDER

WEREWOLF OF WOODSTOCK (Aired on CBS 1975) This was one of Dick Clarks Productions first made for TV movies, and this one has the dubious honor of having been shot on video. An intollerant jackass is hit by lightening and turns into a werewolf (?) the day after the infamouse Woodstock music festival has occured. Needless to say, he hunts down any remaining hippies in the area. This flick is so bad that it's...bad, through and through. My 8mm films I shot when I was a kid looked ten times better than this. Super rare and in nice quality to boot. Just try finding this anywhere else... ORDER

WHERE HAVE ALL THE PEOPLE GONE? (Aired on NBC 10/8/74) A father (Peter Graves) and his two children (Kathleen Quinlan and George O' Hanlon Jr.) fight to survive after some sort of nuclear misshap has whiped out the rest of the worlds population. Eerie flick directed by John Llewellyn Moxey. ORDER

This leads to the whole town treating the reporter and his family like shit; blocking loans, not attending his daughters wedding, and all sorts of other abuses.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK (Aired on BBC 1989) This is with-out a doubt the scariest ghost story you are ever going to see, hands down. Wriiten by the brilliant Nigel Kneale, this story of a London lawyer who must travel out to the marshlands to settle a dead womans estate will raise the hairs on the back of your neck, and may even cause you to loose some sleep. One of our most highly recommended titles. ORDER

WOMEN IN CHAINS (Aired on ABC 1/25/72) Excellent, sleazy "Women in Prison" picter directed by exploitation vet Bernard (Attack of the Giant Leaches) Kowalski. Ida Lupina plays a hateful bull dyke warden who murders prisoners at whim. An undercover social worker goes behind bars to expose the brutality. Very nerve wracking. ORDER

WITCHCRAFT (Unsold TV pilot 1961) Here was a proposed horror series that didn't make it past the initial episode.

And to round out the tape we have a great episode from the underappreciated Darkroom TV series, an episode involving a werewolf. ORDER
