A Zillion Zombies? Not quite a zillion maybe, but they are good ones. We rattled some skeletons in the closet and pulled out the Preview Trailer from the debut ScreamFest in 2000. We made a Top 10 Viewer's Choice, a Silent Horror Classics video library, and over 30 suggested titles, which are displayed randomly as images on the top right banner.

Here's more suggestions - Ouija Board episode from One Step Beyond, Beverly Hillbilies Trick or Treat, or take in some Casper the Friendly Ghost.,

3. Kwaidan - Black Hair

Description: Kwaidan is a spooky classic from Japan. The 1964 film offers four short horror stories. In the first story -Black Hair, a struggling Samurai leaves his wife to marry a rich man's daughter. Years later, disappointed and dejected - he returns to his wife to make amends. What a reunion!

4. Kwaidan - Hoichi the Earless

Description: Kwaidan is a spooky classic from Japan. The 1964 film offers four short horror stories. In the third story -Hoichi the Earless, follow the story of a blind Biwa player and his mystical journey into the spirit world. Hoichi has some wild visions as he entertains the tortured souls of a clan of Samurai warriors with his gift of musical skills. This story is so cool.... trust me, you need to see this. Be prepared for slower pacing... and be patient as you fall into Hoichi's mystical world. Also of note - if Takashi Shimura who plays the head priest looks familiar, well... he should. He starred in Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai as their leader and strategist.

5. Kwaidan - In A Cup of Tea

Description: Kwaidan is a spooky classic from Japan. The 1964 film offers four short horror stories. This page features the fourth and final story of the movie and is called A Cup of Tea. A man pours himself a cup, and sees a man's reflection in the water smiling back at him. He dumps it out several times, but eventually drinks it all up. Hmmm... not a good idea, as it seems he may have quaffed the man's soul in the process.

6. Kwaidan - Woman of the Snow

Description: Kwaidan is a spooky classic from Japan. The 1964 film offers four short horror stories. In the second story shown on this page -The Woman of the Snow, a man has an other worldly experience when he watches a strange spirit woman arrive in snow storm and breathe ice on his friend.... (really nice blue lips too). The friend dies from freezing to death. She tells him never to reveal the tale to anyone. And then the story gets really weird. Cool stuff!

7. Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. This film by Robert Enrico is adapted from the story written by Ambrose Bierce. The short film does an excellent job of telling this great tale, about a man accused of trying to sabotage a bridge during the civil war. As the story begins, the man is about to be executed - by hanging from Owl Creek Bridge. We enter the man's mind, as he imagines that the rope breaks - and he narrowly escapes the onslaught of bullets from the Union soldiers. Then he runs through an arched forest canopy - trying to return to his wife and child, who are waiting for him at his home. Most of the story takes place, during that brief few seconds, as he falls from his gallows - to the moment when his neck snaps. An incredible journey of mind.... look out, there's a sign post up ahead! Yep, this short film was also an episode of The Twilight Zone, with Rod Serling. I believe it was the only episode that was not produced by the great writing team that made the show. As a Twilight Zone, it aired Feb. 28, 1964 - episode 142.

8. Open City (Roma, citta aperta)

Description: Working behind barred door and cellars, a group of Italians created this movie about the horrors of the Nazi occupation in Rome during WWII. They had volunteers for actors, often using equipment stolen from Germans, with scraps of film, no studio lights, intermittent electricity - this was the first film released after the Allies freed Rome.

9. Rififi

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents -Rififi, a classic French fforeign film about how the perfect crime, goes very very wrong. Made in 1955, Jules Dassin won the Best Director award in the cannes Film Festival that year - and for a good reason. This is one of the best crime dramas ever made. A great deal of planning goes into pulling off the biggest jewel heist of all time - and part 3 which features tthe actual heist is reknowned for its tension. For a long period, no words are spoken... the film is very quiet as we jjoin the criminal at the scene. Everything goes off as planned - but as is often the case, the human element will lead to thier demise.
