Trailer for Scalps (1983)

Roald Dahl’s Lamb to the Slaughter, originally a short story and also adapted and directed by Alfred Hitchcock for Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

The scene that almost got John Cribbs thrown out of a movie theater. “How’d you like some ice cream, Frodo?”

The beautiful Andreas Gursky photo to which John was referring.

Trailer for The Sentinel (1977)

Trailer for The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2017)

Trailer for Toshio Matsumoto’s Funeral Parade of Roses (1969), which influenced A Clockwork Orange.

This is low quality but a prime example of the creepiness of Federico Fellini’s Giulietta degli Spiriti (Juliette of the Spirits) (1965). [NB: On the podcast I mistakenly call it Juliette of the Spring] Bonus: Twins! I suggested this and other Fellini films that contain creepiness were an influence on The Shining, but heck, let’s throw in Rosemary’s Baby, The Exorcist and most of David Lynch’s stuff as touched by Fellini. WARNING: Super-scary.

Mrs. Grady’s head, from a scene in “Making ‘The Shining,'” a documentary by Vivian Kubrick. In this scene, Wendy would look in a mirror and see Mrs. Grady behind her, and then the mirror would shatter.
