i love classic horror films!! so when i get a chance to see one i never seen before i jump right on it! this movie stars the excellent actor peter lorre. i love watching films he’s in cause he was such a great actor and u fully believe he’s the character he plays! u dont see him acting, he lives the part. and its so true with this film!!

movie description: Locals in an Italian village believe evil has taken over the estate of a recently deceased pianist where several murders have taken place. The alleged killer: the pianist’s severed hand.

beast5fingers14 jpg lorre is cast so wonderful in this film! great shots of him, like this one!!

beast5fingers11 jpg love the shots with the severed hand!

i found this movie on youtube. its uploaded in 9parts. yea i know some ppl dont like watching movies in parts, but when u get to watch a fun creepy movie like this 1 who cares!

the uploader myriadmutiny told me that this video will be on youtube til just after Halloween. im assuming after halloween uploader wil stil leave part 1 up and as description says if u wanna watch whole film make a request to watch.

but for now the whole film is up and ready to watch for those who want to watch some classic horror goodness!!

its well acted by everybody and wont disappoint!

so heres part 1 of a great movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bn7CXhy544I&feature=related

and just incase the whole movie does get taken off after halloween here the uploaders youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/myriadmutiny and send a msg to them after halloween if movie is not on there anymore.

the horror movie Mad Love 1935, again with lorre is also on that channel in 7 parts! its another fave movie of mine. very enjoyable!

An insane surgeon’s obsession with an actress leads him to replace her wounded pianist’s hands with the hands of a knife murderer which still have the urge to throw knives. http://www.youtube.com/user/myriadmutiny#p/c/3180AEE13809772A/0/K4mp0Lh4gPo

blog blog blog

yea i haven’t been around lately. started when i got sick with bad head cold i couldn’t shake. then after that a migrain. and then now a person relationship problem. well its not a problem but more like i felt like i was hit with a bus! anyway. that brings me here now. just jotting a lil blog to get my mind off things.
anyway i been seeing alot of movies on tcm! i love that channel! i just wish that august passes quick! not that i dont like the “summer under the stars” thing they got going, but i just want them going back to regular programming. movies varying in stars and genres! also i want silent sundays back!!
on another related note, the change they did on tcm’s fan site cfu (classic film union) is nuts! im referring to the new search feature which makes looking for a movie or a star like digging threw a lotta shit getting to a prize! just adding a movie to my page there is annoying but i know i gotta get used to it cause the media is great there and i love the friendly atmosphere there and sharing my love for classic films! it is a fun and addicting site!
ok so soon i’ll be posting more videos n stuff! right now im just trying to keep going…. back into my “life”. see ya

with boris karloff!
i haven’t seen this yet, but i just saw it in archive.org and wanted to post it here!
Boris Karloff has developed a method of transferring not the brain but the incorporeal mind from one being to another.

I CANT SLEEP IN THE MOVIES ANYMORE (1929)- ARTHUR FIELDS AND THE BROADWAY MERRY MAKERS

for ppl who love silent movies and the transition they made into talkies, will find this fun! always wondered what some ppl thought back then of the emerging talking pictures? well this guy sings his displeasure of them in a funny way!

Recorded in 1929, Arthur Fields is poking fun at the new “talkies.” he does sing briefly, mostly music. but this guy made me laugh! wait for his voice! he starts singing about 45 sec into it! after he sings his displeasure of talkies, the rest of song is just music. i wished he kept going lol! but its fun what he sings! so i had to share!

i wanted to put the audio right in here. but i cant upload mp3 file types. oh well! this is from archive.org! it was a happy accident i found it! its under audio section of course but i found it under the subject talkies.
