Do any of you remember these made-for-TV thrillers from the 70's:
"The House That Would Not Die" starring Barbara Stanwyck, who inherits an old house haunted by the dead ghosts of a civil war general and his daughter.
"The Screaming Woman" starring Olivia DeHavilland as a woman convinced the next door neighbour has buried his wife alive on their property. Everyone is convinced Olivia has gone bonkers. the ending scene is still pretty hairaising, as Olivia "digs out" the woman from her shallow grave during a violent thunderstorm.
"The Legend Of Lizzie Borden" starring Elizabeth Montgomery as Lizzie. Pretty damn good script.
"Satans School For Girls" starring Kate Jackson,
Cheryl Ladd as a teacher and student respectively in a remote school for girls, which is really a Satanic Cult.
Aaaaaaah, the 70's!!!
Anyway, just reminiscing. Any of you out there recall these films, or other 70's TV Thrillers?

Dawn of the Dead (1978)
This sequel to Night of the Living Dead is filled with splattered blood and brains in living color. The dead have come back to life to eat the living. This is the story of four people's escape from an urban nightmare to a suburban one. They barricade themselves in a shopping mall and try to start new lives.
Motel Hell (1980)
Farmer Vincent kidnaps unsuspecting travellers and is burying them in his garden. Unfortunately for his victims, they are not dead. He feeds his victims to prepare them for his roadside stand. His motto is: It takes all kinds of critters...to make Farmer Vincents fritters. The movie is gory, but is also a parody of slasher movies like Last House on the Left.

Just remembered another 70's TV chiller film.
"The Victim" starring, again, Liz Montogomery. man, this woman was really trying to break out fo her "Bewitched" stereotype. She plays a sister of a woman married to Robert Foxworth (actor). Her sister has gone missing, and Liz travels to her home, where the tension mounts between her and her brother-in-law.
The ending results in Liz trying to flee from her sisters husband in their station wagon during a violent thunderstorm (surprise surprise) BUT....when Liz almost smashes the car when fleeing from Psycho brother-in-law, the dead body of her sister becomes visible from beneath the blankets in the back of the station wagon.

The "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" was one of the most brutal, the most horrific movies I have ever seen. A friend of mine brought that hellish movie over for me to look at many years ago. After watching it, I had him come and get it--it was just horrific!! I got the shakes after seeing that evil movie. You just don't find scary movies like that anymore. Cujo is another movie that scared me. I no longer watch horror films, but even if I did, there is no movie that Hollywood can make now that would scare me. Real horror films such as, The Omen, Exorcist, Amittyville, Motel Hell, The Shining, Carie, ect.. are a thing of the past. Movies now, whether they are on tv or at the movies, are too stupid to be scary.
