Every movie forum should have some kind of MIDNITE MOVIES list. These were great releases, with a great banner, and along with the requisite trailer, they gave us those cool factoids on the back of the DVD case. As of this posting the best place to still get some of these movies is at OLDIES.COM.


If these ever come to be again, MGM needs to go back to their initial logo, it looks a helluva lot better than that bottom one:

So, here's what I got in my collection:


    [*] Countess Dracula/The Vampire Lovers [*] At The Earths Core [*] The Land That Time Forgot/The People That Time Forgot [*] Count Yorga, Vampire/The Return Of Count Yorga [*] Die, Monster, Die/The Dunwich Horror [*] The Monster That Challenged The World [*] The Beast Within [*] Empire Of The Ants/Tentacles [*] Strange Invaders/Invaders From Mars ('86) [*] Killer Klowns From Outer Space [*] The Angry Red Planet [*] Planet Of The Vampires [*] Invisible Invaders / Journey to the Seventh Planet [*] Invasion of the Star Creatures / Invasion of the Bee Girls
______________________________________________________________________


Wikipedia: Midnite Movies is a line of B movies released first on VHS then on DVD by MGM then later Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The line was begun by MGM in March 2001 following its acquisition of Orion Pictures, which bought out American International Pictures. AIP had a library of B movies from the 1950s and 1960s that were science fiction, horror, and exploitation films. The DVDs were first released as single films but most later releases would be double features. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment later became owners of the MGM library and continued the Midnite Movies line with distributor 20th Century Fox.


The collection is mostly made up of AIP films (including most of Roger Corman's and Vincent Price's horror movies) but also includes some Hammer Horror, Amicus, United Artists, and Empire Pictures movies as well.

Dude you did a lot of work. I have truly enjoyed the Midnite Movie collections and looked foward to them every year.  Too bad Fox messed it up, but there is a chance they could return in some form.  Thanks for this trip down memory lane.  The AIP films were always the best.

Yeah, loved these.  I don't know how many I have, but I started with Corman's Poe films and have acquired quite a few others along the way.  Great series.  One misstep I hope to find corrected someday is the "Vault of Horror" release which is a TV cut instead of the theatrical version.

Wikipedia did all the work, Allen, all I did was cut and paste and alter it a bit. My original intent was to present a pictorial history of ALL the movies, that is until I went to Wikipedia and saw just how many movies and how many times they were released. Wow! That would have been A LOT of photos. I think my ambition was sorely tested. And, some how, I can't help feeling that I have failed you all. Posted Image

Useful list.

I saw most of the 1960s and 1970s titles in a theater. The first time I walked into a Walmart I stopped just inside the entrance at a display of Midnite Movies on sale for $5 each. I bought fifteen of them. Gradually I added more Midnite Movies to my DVD library. I have:


The Abominable Dr. Phibes
At the Earth's Core
Attack of the Puppet People
Beach Blanket Bingo
Die, Monster, Die!

Donovan's Brain
Dr. Phibes Rises Again
The Dunwich Horror
Empire of the Ants
House of Usher

I Bury the Living
It! The Terror from Beyond Space
The Monster That Challenged the World
The Pit and the Pendulum
Theatre of Blood
Twice Told Tales
Village of the Giants
War-Gods of the Deep
The Wild Angels


Angel Unchained / Cycle Savages
Beach Blanket Bingo / How to Stuff a Wild Bikini
Beach Party / Bikini Beach
The Comedy of Terrors / The Raven (1963)
Count Yorga, Vampire / The Return of Count Yorga
Countess Dracula / The Vampire Lovers
Cry of the Banshee / Murders in the Rue Morgue
The Haunted Palace / The Tower of London
The House on Skull Mountain / The Mephisto Waltz
The Land That Time Forgot / The People That Time Forgot
The Masque of the Red Death / The Premature Burial
The Oblong Box (film) / Scream and Scream Again
Panic in Year Zero! / The Last Man on Earth
Psych-Out / The Trip
The Return of Dracula / The Vampire
Tales from the Crypt / The Vault of Horror
Theater of Blood / Madhouse
The Tomb of Ligeia / An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe
Voodoo Island / The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake
The Wild Angels / Hell's Belles
Wild in the Streets / Gas-s-s-s
What's the Matter with Helen? / Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?
Yongary, Monster from the Deep / Konga


I need to catch up with more titles than I thought:


Blueprint For Murder / Man In the Attic

Chosen Survivors / The Earth Dies Screaming

Devils of Darkness / Witchcraft

Fireball 500 / Thunder Alley
Fortunes of Captain Blood / Captain Pirate
Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow / Ghost in the Invisible Bikini
Gorilla at Large / Mystery on Monster Island

The Mini-Skirt Mob / Chrome and Hot Leather

Muscle Beach Party / Ski Party


The remainder I'm not interested in.

It would be nice if MGM continued the Midnite Movies line.

Some of the later double-features were not well-paired, I thought.



Richard



edited to add Donovan's Brain and I Bury the Living which I overlooked the first time.

Ah nostalgia, it was so much fun to go to Best Buy where they had a rack for the MGM Midnite Movies.  Mulling through the titles to see if you could find an obscure title that had evaded you several times.  Longing for those days.

What MGM should do, but never will, is go back and put the ones that need to be anamorphic and in their correct aspect ratio.


Then we will be all happy campers. Also, thanks Shawn for the list. I'll have to see what I'm missing, but I think it's nothing.

The best pairing I ever encountered was the DIE, MONSTER, DIE/THE DUNWICH HORROR Double Fetaure. Both flicks are based on H.P. Lovecraft tales, they are both directed by the same director, and most importantly, I love them both, which made replacing my singles of each flick with this double feature a no-brainer.

I gather the Lovecraft adaptations were Daniel Haller's idea. Both very seductive-looking films with their emphasis on antique houses and furnishings hosting some kind of ancient and thinly veiled evil that's also natural and organic.  I suspect Haller had a hand in designing the films as well as directing them. He captures Lovecraft's aesthetic very well, don't you think. Haller didn't direct many films. He was Roger Corman's production designer and he designed the early Poe films for Corman and AIP.

My only complaint about The Dunwich Horror is the "beings' from the other side look like a bunch of stoned hippies cavorting on Zuma Beach. I wish Haller & company had given more thought to how to depict the abnormal beings from the other side, or show less of them.

Never understood how all of the Poe films (to my knowledge) were anamorphic except Pit and the Pendulum.  And yet if I'm not mistaken, the UK DVD was anamorphic.

DIE, MONSTER, DIE, is Lovecraft by way of Poe. If you didn't know anything about Lovecraft, you'd swear you were watching another Poe adaptation. I just ordered THE CURSE/CURSE 2: THE BITE (Double Feature), mostly for THE BITE, but I'm gonna reevaluate THE CURSE, the second adaptation of Lovecraft's THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE. Until then, DIE, MONSTER, DIE is my favorite cinematic version of that tale. I remember not liking THE CURSE when I saw it back in the day, maybe that's changed. I'll let you know.


As for THE DUNWICH HORROR, so far no movie has ever done Wilbur Whateley justice. He's a horribly deformed monster of a person in the tale, who's part human and part Elder thing, or, Outer Ones, or, I forget, I haven't read the tale in a while, exactly which of Lovecraft's Gods he's part of, but his other half is all tentacles and unnamable parts. I'm still waiting for someone, perhaps, Stuart Gordon, to do that character justice.

UPDATE: Just looked it up, Wilbur's "father" is supposed to be Yog-Sothoth, one of the Old Ones.

Dean Stockwell is creepy, though, or so the ladies tell me. Sam Jaffe was good casting as well. To be fair, I suppose AIP didn't have the technology to do justice to "The Dunwich Horror" (which was published in Weird Tales in 1928, mid-term Lovecraft). Nobody did back in 1970. It is to their credit that they didn't do the rubber-suited monster thing like Amicus did across the pond with its Burroughs adaptations. Making monsters is one of the few things CGI is good for. That and the weather.


The Curse and The Bite are strictly yawn-city.

They did have a monster in THE DUNWICH HORROR. Remember, Wilbur had a twin brother, who took after his "father" more than Wilbur did, and, in the movie, they locked up in that room on the second floor. When it gets loose, I thought that was a pretty cool monster effect. The two times you actually see it.


I like Dean Stockwell in that role. You're right, he plays it very creepy. And, Sandra Dee is hot!


I still have good memories of THE BITE. You have to admit it's original. I mean, that dude's arm turns into a goddamn snake! I still wish MGM had released that one, and THE CURSE is their proper 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

Damn, this would have been a great poll question, How many of us would like to see MGM remaster some of their Midnite Movies?

I nabbed a majority of them. should have grabbed a few more when Wal-Mart had the $5 deal years ago for the solo shots. Only ones I had zero interest in grabbing was the Sony Pirate titles.


would be nice if they'd continue the series, but I've caught a few of the missing titles on THiS and didn't feel too upset that they weren't on the DVD shelf. Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs and Sgt. Deadhead. Still would have liked the Riot on Sunset Strip/Maryjane Double Feature.


It's only a shame that Lionsgate gave up so fast on the Sam Arkoff AIP titles and Susan Hart still hasn't let her AIP titles get released on DVD. The full legacy of AIP should be on discs.

I picked up pretty much all the ones I was interested in, except a couple of the old singles. There were a few - like the pirate and biker ones - that held no interest for me at all.

You are correct. I bought the UK edition (for peanuts) and it of course looks far superior to the letterboxed domestic release, if you have an all-region machine that plays PAL discs. I really think there is no reason, good or bad, why MGM released the non-anamorphic transfer here -other than just utter negligence.

You might want to add (under box sets) Roger Corman Collection, which contains five (5) Midnight movies among it's eight titles: Gas-s-s;  The Premature Burial;  The Trip;  The Wild Angels;  X: The Man With X-Ray Eyes (as well as Bloody Mama; A Bucket of Blood and The Young Racers.)

Good catch, Karl. Info has been added to opening post. If anyone else knows of anything from that list that's missing, or even wrong, don't hesitate to let me know. I want this thread to be the definitive MIDNITE MOVIES thread, as it pertains to everything, and I do mean, everything, that was released under this magnificent line.


I still wish I could have done that pictorial history. You know that would make a great coffee table book. A nice compact visual tome of all the DVD covers, back and front. If anyone can make that happen, my God, please do.

I'd jump for that anamorphic Pit and the Pendulum if it weren't for PAL speedup.  This is a film I've seen so many times over the years that I think the change in pitch and speed would be distracting.  I do have a number of PAL DVDs that I enjoy, but for the most part they're titles that I never had from any other source, and I don't have their sound nearly as "in my ears" like I do this one.
