    Scavenger Hunt #88 - rewatch a fave and see if you notice something new

    I unapologetically love this movie. Chuck Connors is so earnest and throws himself completely into this roll of Mr. Slausen, the lonely old guy living in a defunct tourist trap with thousands of mannequins and some secrets.

    I love all the mannequin gags and I've mentioned the pipe kill before. The face plaster death scene is still really scary because he does it so slow, emphasizing…

    Daily Horror Hunt #52 - scifi horror from 1950s

    I wish I could've watched this without any knowledge of the fly thing because man, that reveal would've been so crazy!

    Starts with a murder with a hydraulic press in Vincent Price's factory. The likely suspect is his sister-in-law. But why did she do it?

    Also, I can't believe he did that poor kitten like that!

    Arachnophobia

    ★★★

    A dead guy inadvertently brings home a deadly spider from Venezuela in his casket. That spider finds a mate and the babies proceed to infiltrate the town. One of the guys who saves the town is a guy deathly afraid of spiders, another is John Goodman as a really invested pest control man.

    I suppose if you don't like spiders, this would probably freak you out because there are a LOT of them, especially at the end. But I found…

    Woo, dang. This is a fun one! Going in with no expectations really is big, so I'm not going to mention anything about the plot.

    But, seeing this in the theater is a cool group experience and there definitely are some really tense moments!
