THE OUTER LIMITS: Fun And Games / Season 1 Episode 27 - 1964

In today's story, a being on a distant planet teleports a young man and woman from an apartment building to compete in a gladiatorial contest with primitive monsters. For the aliens, it's just an amusing game, but if the humans fail, Earth will be destroyed! The woman is desperate to save Earth, but the man is a vicious, petty crook on the run, who has little to lose and doesn't care about humanity's fate...

This one stars Nick (FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD, DIE, MONSTER, DIE, GODZILLA vs. MONSTER ZERO, MISSION MARS) Adams as Mike Benson, Nancy (THE VIOLATORS) Malone as Laura Hanley, Bill (SOLAR CRISIS) Hart as the alien and Ray (EXPERIMENT IN TERROR) Kellogg as the Detective.

It all starts at a card game among some crooks. Well, one guy comes in and shoots a kingpin, causing mayhem as all the men there scatter from the scene...

Suddenly, Mike, one of the people at the game, is transported to an alien planet where he's told that he can choose between going to prison for the rest of his life, or, fight for the fate of the Earth! Mike just doesn't know what to make of the offer.

The Alien then brings in the woman, Laura, whose apartment Mike ended up in after the shooting. The game will pit the two of them against two primitive monsters on their planet.

The two are sent back to Earth to decide if they will take up the offer to try and save the world, or not. Mike isn't interested and escapes the situation.

Here's a great close up of one of the monsters!.. Yeeeeesh!

Laura finally convinces Mike, after he returns to her apartment, that they should fight for the fate of the Earth even if Mike doesn't give a crap! He finally gives in and they're transported to the alien planet.

And, the two monsters have razor sharp boomerangs to intimidate the Earthlings...

Laura tries to get across a stream but is caught by one of the monsters. She screams and Mike comes'a runnin' to the scene.

After Mike helps Laura off the wooden structure, he tries to cross the stream. Unfortunately, he is shaken off by a monster but grabs a log and holds on as the thing tries to stomp his hands. He screams for Laura to throw the boomerang at the monster...

The boomerang hits the thing in the head, killing it. Then, Mike falls into the fire and dies!

The Alien tells Laura that she has saved the Earth from destruction and sends her back to her apartment. She asked the Alien if she will remember anything and he says that she will only remember things that are meaningful to her...

Back in her apartment, Mike breaks in after the murder at the card game. He looks at her, then disappears out the window again. She doesn't remember Mike, so, he was not important to her! Hey, join us again on Wednesday when Eegah!! will bring on more Dungeon Cargo!.. Later!!

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA - Season 02, Episode 23 - "The Monster's Web" (1966)

I've got a great Saturday Night Special for you that was on for four seasons from 1964 to 1968, and it's called.......

"Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea!"

This episode titled "The Monster's Web" was about a giant underwater spider!

As always, the stars of the show were Richard (The Satan Bug) Basehart as Admiral Nelson, who was also in "The Twilight Zone" episode titled "Probe 7, Over and Out," and believe it or not, in 1962 he actually played "Hitler" in a movie with the same name!

The co-star was David (The Fly, Live And Let Die) Hedison as Captain Crane! David is still around and has worked steadily on TV for some 60 years!

This is a special episode because the guest star was Dungeon fave Mark Richman, also known as "Agent For H.A.R.M."

Nice shot of the Seaview above the water!

Equally nice shot of the Flying Sub!

Admiral Nelson hits his head and gets knocked out soon after this shot because the story goes that Richard Basehart got sick, and could not complete the mission, and he was actually out for a couple more episodes, but returned full strength in season three. If you ever see this episode, it's pretty obvious that something was going on, because you hardly see him again, and if you do, it's just the back of his head because they were using a double!

For my money, this water spider is pretty neat, but I also read that Richard Basehart was getting tired of being part of  'the monster of the week' club! Too bad because it's all the krazy monsters that makes all these shows so cool!

Great isn't it? He's stumbling around with enough explosive fuel to blow up half the world!

Great shot from out the mini-sub's front windshield!

The monitor on the Seaview shows the mini-sub trapped by the giant spider's web!

I think this is the best shot I got of the spider!

This is the perfect look for a man under a lot of stress! I feel his pain! He should have pulled the Admiral's finger when he had the chance!

There were 16 of these "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea" comics made between 1964 and 1969, and four seasons of the TV series, so with something that popular, there must be plans for a new movie or TV show sometime soon, and if not, there sure should be!!

Welcome back to the Dungeon... In this nuthouse of a horror flick, a dutiful granddaughter goes home to take care of her elderly grandmother who's in bad health. Once there though, she finds herself trapped inside with a homicidal maniac! Everyone's freakin' crazy in this thing!! Filmed in Jefferson, Texas.

Susan (4 acting credits) Bracken plays Amanda, Larry (2 acting credits) O'Dwyer plays Claude, Larry (DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT, SCUM OF THE EARTH, THE GOONIES, BASIC TRAINING) O'Dwyer plays Judge, with more low credit actors.

Hey, I'm not going to get into any details because... well, because... I don't feel like it, I just like the stills! Anyway, this is how things start, a sharp blade and a scream in the night.

Amanda joins her so called 'friends' in an unsatisfying conversation after she decides to move in to her mom's house. Spoiler alert: Dude in the back is the perverted (you'll see) killer.

The killer likes to spy on Amanda, he even goes into her room while she's sleeping!

Time to pay a visit to the old Historical Society Museum... Hey. nice stairwell.

The killer is dressed up as a wax figure and he beats the crap out of the visitor! He hits the guy in the head with a large hammer about ten times, but when they show him, there's just a little blood on his face, huh?!

Amanda has the killer on the phone, she had a special doll when she was a child. I'll let you figure out what the Hell this scene is all about...

Amanda has finally had enough of the conversation...

Although Judge is fucked up in the head, he's not the killer, he just got a knife in the back!

Then, another 'friend' attacks Amanda but she pushes the jerkface away from her and he falls to his death down a circular stairwell...

Here's the cherry on top, Amanda is the last one standing and she's totally insane by now... Like, Happy Newk Year Ever'bloody!!!.. Coo-coo, coo-coo, coo-coo!

I'll leave you with this one last thought... So, tune in again tomorrow when Eegah!! will have something special for you's all.
