EEGAH!! & TABONGA! AT THE MOVIES 8 / The Early Sixties

I've felt like I'm a Twilight Zone episode lately, so, it's no wonder that I just sold my portable disc drive to Eegah!! and the disc drive on my sound computer went kaput yesterday. Good news is that I bought one on Amazon last night. Hopefully I'll be back in business on Friday... In the meantime, here's our 8th installment of Eegah!! and Tabonga! at the movies!

This title card has to be one of the best looking ones from the sixties... Wow!!

THE BRIDES OF DRACULA made us happy campers, Hammer kicked ass with their take on all the classic monsters. Throw in a pile of sexy vampire girls and you gots a wiener!!

We loved Hammer Sci-Fi too, VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED delivered the goods for us. Those glowing eyes looked so cool before they turned human brains into mush!

THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS was trying to compete with Universal's Creature, but, you can see when lit wrong, the monster looks more goofy than frightening. It was an okay flick for us because it had a freakin' rubber monster...

The artwork for WEREWOLF IN A GIRL'S DORMITORY was top notch, there's mucho eye appeal.

And, cute school girls always look great in any motif!..

We loved TERROR FROM THE YEAR 5000, it had such cool hardware and one wild looking mutant. Even though it was made in 1958, they shelved it until 1961, I think we saw it with INVASION OF THE STAR CREATURES. Check in again on Wednesday for our last March post.

With Brides of Dracula, what I mainly remember is that scene where Gina (Andree Melly) approaches Marianne (Yvonne Monlaur), saying, "Put your arms around me, Marianne. I want to kiss you." But then Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) came in and stopped her. Spoilsport.

Brides is my favorite movie. If there was heaven, that would be the aesthetic:
19th century English Mittelland, Gothic and romantic sets with lush, moody 1950´s- 1960´s color.
