Subject: 70's Horror Films

Written By: MotleyCrue85 on 05/24/03 at 07:20 p.m.

What horror movies freaked you out if you were a kid in the 70's. My fondest nightmares come from Salem's Lot, The Shining (1980), and The Fog (1980). I was 9 when these were out , watched them and had a hard time sleeping for awhile, still kinda freaky today when i see them. They dont make them like they used to. I see todays horror films and they dont even compare.

I love horror films from all eras, there is only one that I will not watch and that is The Exorcist. Watched it when I was very young the first time and it made a huge impression. Scared me to death. I also had a family member terrify me when I would stay over at her house because she  told me that the 'Exorcist girl' lived in her closet and if I moved around she would get me.  ;D :o

As a teen in the 70s, I didn't (and still don't) like post-1960s horror films. But I remember seeing The House That Dripped Blood , Williard, The Exorcist,(Rosemary's Baby is from 1968, but I was able to stomach that one and saw it in the 70s), I saw Night Of The Living Dead in the 70s.

Burnt offerings scared the heck out of me.  I will never watch that one again.

For me it was the feeling of the movie.  Then there was the old lady in the attic.  The scene at the end where the chimney falls on the dad freaks me out to this day.  It could also be that I first saw it when I was 10.

Carrie kind of freaked me out-well the end when the hand comes up...(I really don't want to give too much away in case someone hasn't seen it yet).

Asylum was another movie that kind of freaked me out. Haven't seen it in decades.


I think the scariest movie I have ever seen was Children of the Corn. I know it came out in the 80s-not the 70s, but it is still the scariest movie I have ever seen.

No, the dark haired girl (late teens) didn't start fires particularly. She had a power within her eyes. In one of the last scenes in the movie, she was in a bedroom. There was a man on a bed and he made very her angry. She then looked at him and his head exploded off his shoulders completely.

I remember that movie, she had to put that little voo-doo doll in the oven and when she opened the oven door to see if it was dead the dolls spirit jumped inside of her and she squated there on the floor ramming the butcher knife in the floor and waited for her mother to come over for dinner. If memory serves me correctly, Karen Black starred in Burnt Offerings also.

There is one that has terrified me for years but I have no idea what its name is - hopefully it may ring a bell to someone.  I saw it at the drive in around 1975 or 76 and I was supposed to be asleep in the back of the car.

I dont know if it was an Aussie or American movie.

Basic storyline was a bunch of attractive young women on holiday - they were towing a caravan around.  One had a little dog - perhaps a scottish terrier or similar.

Everywhere they went this mysterious bikie gang would appear.  Bits that remain in my head are:

# One woman was at a swimming pool doing laps - she opens her eyes underwater and one of the bikies is lying on the bottom of the pool smiling up at her.

# The girls go back to the caravan and find the cupboards full of snakes.

# The woman are running around looking for the little dog and finally find it dead and strung up on the caravan.

Over the years I have described this to so many people and it doesnt sound familiar to anyone !!


I generally try to avoid actual horror movies - but having worked at the family drive ins from 74 - 84 it was hard to avoid all.  The ones that I wish I had never watched - because they still give me nightmares to this day are Amytiville Horror,
The Changeling (With George C Scott), and
Physcomania (I think this was a British film - bout bikers who intentionally kill themselves to be part of a living dead type biker gang - I remember seeing Stonehenge in several scenes).

The movie you are referring to, sounds like "Race with the devil". It was about two couples that went on vacation in an RV, and witnessed a human sacrifice while camped out one night. It turned out to be a satanic cult. It starred Loretta Swit, Peter Fonda, and Warren Oates.

Hiya Butterball.

Would you believe someone else suggested that one a few years ago so we tracked it down and watched it and it wasnt the one :(  Tho similar stuff happened in it so I was inclined to think the one I saw was a cheap copy perhaps.  
The one I remember definately had women travelling without men - and they definately had a caravan attached to the tow bar of their car.
I am kinda inclined to think it was an Aussie flick because of the caravan - millions of us (especially in the 70's) holidayed in them whereas the US culture was more towards the RVs etc.

ARGH - its only bothered me for 25 years or so - one day I will find out what it was !!

"Hider In The House" with Gary Busey ???

Kudos to those who mentioned Black Christmas (looooove Olivia Hussey!) and Suspiria!

Suspiria was weird as hell. It was not scary, but the ideas and sets were off-the-wall awesome. I kneel at the altar of horror film maestros like Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci 8)

I'm definitely more into the stalker/suspense branch of horror like Dressed To Kill and Blow Out. The film has to be directed either by an Italian or in the style of Brian DePalma circa late 70s and early 80s 8) Pino Donaggio soundtracks are a must too, if Goblin/Cherry Five prove too difficult to find!

Here are a couple of more I just thought of from the 70s and other decades (now that we have ventured in to the 80s 8) ):

Don't Torture A Duckling
The New York Ripper
The Collector
Peeping Tom
Psycho
M
Eyes Without A Face
Happy Birthday To Me

The Exorcist was really freaky. †Part of it was filmed here in DC & when I was a teenager we would go hang out on the "Exorcist Steps" (remember the scene when the Priest fell down the loooong flight of stairs), which are located in Georgetown, DC. I always had this eerie feeling walking down them!

I remember reading the book in College, and it scared me way more than the movie did. †

I saw the Exorcist for the very first time this year, on television and let me say, it was NOT as scary as everyone says because the LANGUAGE was all blocked out.  I truly believe that if you can't hear her carrying on and saying bad words and nasty things, it's almost funny.

I remember Happy Birthday to Me. it starred Melissa Sue Anderson (from Little House on the Prairie). That was a creepy movie. She killed all the children that didn't show up at her birthday party when she was a little girl, and she placed them all around the birthday table, really sick. I also remember going to the movies to see "The Town that Dreaded Sundown", it was about teenagers getting killed while parking in lovers lane. It cured me of parking,lol. I can still remember one scene when he tied the couple to a tree and tied the knife to the end of a trombone and as he played it the knife went in and out of the victims. I don't care for bloody movies anymore, there is enough violence in the real world these days.

I had forgotten about the Omen. I went to see that movie on my first "date." I was all of 13. I really wanted to hold on to the guy during the scary parts but I think I was more afraid of that then I was of the movie. The movie was pretty scary, though.

'Salem's lot' scared my dad.
'I spit on your grave' scared my mum.
'Scream pretty Peggy' scared me.

I was only eight or nine years old at the time. I think it was about a minder that got involved with an intriguing sculptor and his 'demented' mother. This was scary for me because it was the first I had witnessed transvestitism (the sculptor in the end was the mad one, he dressed up like his mother)! Please note I hadn't seen Psycho before this.

Has anybody mentioned the film 'Patrick'? That was quite unnerving. It was about a killer that was in hospital in a comatose state. He could kill with telekinetic powers. The way he communicates via typewriter was intriguing.

This is an 80s film but I'm going to mention 'Hell night' - a stalk and slash horror about Halloween party goers entering a mansion inhabited by a retarded guy who killed them all, predictably one by one, except the main character.

I don't know if this movie is from the 70's or 80's, but When a Stranger Calls was VERY suspenseful. I also remember a movie called My Bloody Valentine. I used to go see all the scary movies until they just became so ridiculous.

From my childhood anyone remember Picture Mommy Dead, or the Pit and the Pendulum? There was also that one where Bette Davis was horrible to her sister, and that little blond girl was just evil.

As far as campy/scary movies go, anyone remember the Dr. Phibes movies with Vincent Price?

To put my mind at ease, does anyone remember a scary/slasher movie with a scene in it where some young, fat boy is in a pool saying he's a sea pig? I know that sounds very odd, but I know I saw it-just can't remember the name of it.

From the same 'Vincent Price' era. I heard of a film called 'The Tingler'.

The film in itself wasn't very scarey but apparently there was a gimic involved with the seating at cinemas which, at certain parts of the movie, would give a small electric shock!

I remember seeing The Tingler on TV back in the early 60's as a little kid... I slept with the light on for a few years afterwards...

John Waters did "Polyester" in what he called "Odorama". The audience was given a "scratch-n-sniff" card and you were cue'd when to use it. Most of the smells were nasty and unexpected, if I remember correctly, i.e. the guy would hand the girl a bouquet of roses -- cue the scratch-n-sniff -- and as you were sniffing, the guy would whip out a pair of stinky sweatsox!  Waters is one strange dude.

What about all those slightly cheesy Hammer Horror ones !!Like the ones that had 3 or 4 stories in one film.I remember one being 3 men on a train telling their stories and then finally realising they were dead or something.Oh god and that Vincent Price,Christopher Lee one with the hand climbing up the car windscreen or the one with Oliver Reed as a werewolf ??

I loved the real cheesy Hammer Horrors from the early 70's, sadly the studio closed.

They were so bad they were good.  ;D ;D ;D

I'm not sure if this is a '70s movie but I recently seen "Tourist Trap", my boyfriend bought it on DVD.

Basically the characters are being killed and turned into mannequins. †It wasn't scary, just weird.

I thought it was funny when the mannequins head would turn, they're mouth would open and go "AHHHHHH" in this creepy voice. † :D

Tanya Roberts from Charlie's Angels is in it.

1. Trilogy of Terror ... I had to sleep with my mother after I saw that one.. She was even scared. †The voodoo doll one was †the most horrifying one.. "Yech yech yech yech yech" at the end when Karen Black's teeth looked all jagged and she was crouched down , repeatedly sticking the knife in the floor.. That image alone still freaks me out.
2. The Exorcist- whenever I have pea soup , I think of her.
3. Carrie- Scared me when I was a kid..now I would say I am on Carrie's side.. I am glad she got her revenge.
4. The Hills Have Eyes- I saw this when I was a little kid at a drive-in . It was the second movie in a double feature that also featured "Arnold". Arnold was kind of lame though. Though I was scared back then. The Hills have Eyes gave me nightmares for weeks.. that bald cannibal guy ...ewwww...
5. Texas Chainsaw Massacre- I didn't actually see this til the 80's when I was a teenager, because I was too little when it first came out. Scared the bejeezus out of me though.
6. The Omen- That angelic little kid, Damien..looked just like my brother. †Kind of acted like him also.

Since I wasn't even alive in the 70's most movies never really quite scared me, but The Shinning & Halloween were the ones I remember having nightmares about as a kid.

And I don't know why but The Exorcist never really did quite scared me.

I liked Rosemary's baby alot, so as Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Happy Birthday To Me is great, i'm not really if its from the 70's or 80's.

I used to be obsessed with horror movies. I saw billions of them, I used to have a list somewhere... Ah well but they don't make movies today like they used to. No matter how many special effects by computer the movie has its not as good as old ones.

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but I have a vague memory of this '72 flick (name unknown) in which a bunch of priests and nuns were romping around in the nude doing scarry stuff.  Anyone remember it?

"The Devils" maybe? With Vanessa Redgrave and Oliver Reed and lots of nuns running around naked and people being burned at the stake? Great film if that's what you're thinking of!
