 What are the names of these episodes???
Episode with creatures that looked like turtles with elephant trunks. They wrapped the trunks around your arm or leg and then grinded your bones and turned you into something like a rubber chicken. I think Vincent price was in this one.

Episode where there is a haunted house. A woman hides in a closet, and a witch goes through the wall and comes up behind her!!

Hello Liz. Welcome to the board.

The first movie doesn't sound familiar to me, but I believe someone else asked for help for this exact same movie some months back. Looks like it's "Island of Terror" with Peter Cushing. Here's the thread discussing the movie. It had a pretty memorable title: "Bone Sucking Monsters".

Here's "Island of Terror" at IMDB so you can see if it's what you are looking for:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060548/



The second movie looks to me like it might be "House on Haunted Hill" with Vincent Price. At least I know there's a scene where a woman is hiding in a closet and a strange woman (who may appear to be a witch) suddenly appears (apparently through the wall) and scares the beejezus out of the young woman. If this IS the movie you're talking about, the good news is that it's almost difficult to NOT own it on DVD. I've seen it on countless dollar DVDs (the ones you find at dollar stores, Wal-Mart...) and it has been on any number of those 10, 20, 50 movie DVD sets that are full of all kinds of public domain horror movies.

Here it is at IMDB:

That scene in HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL never fails to give anyone I watch that flick with (myself included) a big jolt when that woman shows up out of nowhere and then glides off....

That's very true Mark. I have to admit that I had never seen "House on Haunted Hill" until last fall, when it was featured at the National Amusements' Attack of the B-Movies series. I have a copy of it on a dollar store DVD that I never got around to watching. I guess that the simple fact that it seemed to be so ubiquitous made me think that it wasn't very good (despite the presence of Mr. Price). No, that's not a very logical reason to doubt the movie's quality, but it was what it was. I was pleasantly surprised by how fun of a movie it really was. And that scene did creep me out a bit too! I can't believe I waited so long to finally see it.

Thanks Everyone!!! That was it! Island of Terror! I can't believe it! It actually wasn't bad! Someone named "Crippler Girl" recently posted the entire movie in segments on You-Tube!! What a trip! And thanks for the tip on "The House on Haunted Hill". I'll be sure to check that out! Liz

I just finished watching "Island of Terror" yesterday on YouTube. What a fun movie. Thanks to the people who remembered this one from CDF (I don't think I've ever seen it before) and those who identified it for them. Bone Sucking Monsters indeed. If you had to describe the movie in three words I can't imagine a better description!

I'm pretty sure that it would have creeped me out and left quite an impression on me if I had seen it as a kid on CDF. No wonder why the descripions of it by people who hadn't seen it in 20 or 30 years so vivid--even after all that time! I've gotta try to see more of the stuff from CDF that I DON'T remember along with watching all my old favorites that I remember.

Yep, it's in nine parts. The first eight are ten minutes each and the last one is about six minutes long. Check it out before it gets yanked!

I used two windows to watch the movie. While I was watching one part I had a window in the backround loading up the next part so it would be ready to watch when I was done with the first one. It worked pretty well.

Here's a link to Part 1:

I'd have to agree with you on that Astroal. As hard as it may be to believe in this digital, computer-run day we are living in, but before watching "Island of Terror" on YouTube I had never watched a whole movie on the computer. I've seen clips of movies and stuff like that, but never a whole movie. I guess I was curious enough about this one to make the effort. Besides, it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else. I figured that, rather than do some exhaustive search for a copy of it that I'd have to pay for, I could just put up with the "installment" factor and watch it on YouTube for free!

Thanks for the link, Col. Manning!

I've been intrigued by this movie ever since this thread was started, having never heard of it before.

Now I'm off to YouTube!
