I thought of a possible future game, i.e. movies featuring a circus - have we done this before?
Yes, I think we have, but it was ages ago. We can do it again!
Yes, Let's :D
3. Svengali (1931)-Pre-Code Warner Bros supernatural/horror movie directed by Archie Mayo, starring John Barrymore, Marian March, Bramwell Fletcher, Donald Crisp.
Wide-eyed, evil, perverse and scheming, musical maestro Svengali (played by John Barrymore who to me is reminiscent of the Russian Rasputin) is captivated by the enchanting young artist's model Trilby O'Farrell (Marian March).
He uses his powers of telepathic mind control and hypnosis to lure her to do his will. Under his spell he compels her to sing soprano on the stages of Europe to become a singing sensation.
Inspired by German expressionism, it is well worth seeing.
Watch it on YouTube!
It's really good! :D
4. Village of the Damned - Non-human visitors are born as children in a small English village. They quickly learn to read and control people's minds.
Thank you, John! It's not an easy category, but I can still think of lots more.
5. White Zombie (1932)- Pre-Code atmospheric psychological/horror film starring Bela Lugosi, Robert Frazer, Madge Bellaby, Joseph Cawthorn.
A young American couple celebrate their wedding in a castle on the Island of Haiti. A spurned admirer at the ceremony so desires the lovely bride himself it consequently leads him to go to extreme measures. He makes a pact with a voodoo witch doctor (Bela Lugosi) to kill the girl and resurrect her as a Zombie. Ironically the beautiful bride Madeline as a Zombie is nothing like the vivacious girl she once was.
The voodoo with doctor uses his powers of hypnosis and witchcraft to control and destroy mortals to reawake them as mindless Zombies.
Supposedly this is the first Zombie film ever made.
Interesting entry, John! I've heard of this but didn't know it was the first zombie movie. I guess there are quite a few zombie and vampire movies that would fit this category.
