Have you seen any TV MOVIES and if so,what do ya think??

I have seen 3

1) On the edge of innocence - 1997

An excellent movie about 2 kids ending up in an institution and falling in love,then escaping from it and then realising they need help and returning.....

2) Living with the dead - 2002

An excellent movie with a surprising ending!! -- You really need to be in the right frame of mind to understand the ending!!!! (It brought me to tears -- A touching movie)

3) Red alert - 1977

A good movie about a power plant employee gone bad...... Thankfully they get him before anything really big happens!

I've seen quite a few but the two that I remember most are:


Salem's Lot

I haven't seen Salem's Lot in years so I don't know if it holds up but Duel definitely does.

Duel is now on Blu-ray; I haven't seen the disc yet.

It was originally from a fondly remembered series: ABC Movie of the Week. I recall a bunch of titles from that list, many of which have never been on home video, or even broadcast more than once.

I spent years on a usenet film group, and the most frequently asked question was "What was that one about the ghost bomber crew playing baseball at their crash site in the desert?" That was Sole Survivor (1970) with William Shatner and Richard Basehart. Not on disc: I would love to have it, and many others.


Review older films here: 1979 and earlier | 1980s | 1990s | Combined reviews: Strange Picture Scroll

Gargoyles from 1972 scared the crap outta me when I was a kid. It's available on DVD.

Killdozer from 1974 is another that I loved as a kid. I'd love to see it again, but it's not available on DVD. My only hope it seems, is that Svengoolie runs it again.
