There was a made for TV movie from '73 called Screaming Skull that starred David McCallum and Carrie Nye that I've been dying to see it again, anybody have a copy or know where to find one?

I was going to make exactly the same comment as anonymous! Wait, maybe we're the same person! I've never seen us in the same place together! Hmmm... ;)

Never heard of that TV movie, but the 50s movie is pretty boring...though I seem to remember one "ok, that's pretty cool" moment near the end.

Is that the Screaming Skull movie that was done hilariously by MST3K?

Karswell said...

I'm sure they attacked the 50's version.

There were a lot of movies on MST3K that didn't deserve that kind of treatment,but i admit i've never really enjoyed SCREAMING SKULL,and although it has its own dull moments,i can recommend Francis's THE SKULL as a superior film.

The only thing missing from the story is the tag "And they lived happily ever after."

They and the skulls finally reconciled, and moved into a flat in London together. The skulls stopped screaming and eventually made interesting conversation after dinner.
