The movie adaptation of "The Sentinel" is fairly decent and has a good cast that includes Chris Sarandon, Burgess Meredith, Christopher Walken, Jerry Orbach, Beverly D'Angelo, Tom Berenger and Jeff Goldblum.

Netflix has it available for streaming too.

Man, I just watched that last night. Freaky. Not the movie, the coincidence. Climax of the movie has a bunch of sideshow freaks made up as demons, plus there are a bunch of 1970s chesticles featured, so that was pretty cool.

I'll watch it just to see how different Brooklyn Heights looked.  It was interesting to see an actual ship docked outside.

I remember watching this movie some time back in the 80s after reading about it in Fangoria. The whole human oddities thing really stuck with me. I also thought it was cool that Ghostbusters basically used the same premise.

A warning before watching The Sentinel. Jerry Orbach's mustache cannot be unseen.

The Sentinel is much less accessible than, say, The Omen, but certain viewers will find it striking. It's not one of the trippier horror films of its day, but it certainly has its moments.

Hello there.

I like the Sentinel. It's funny that I didn't remember Beverly D'Angelo being in it - I think I saw it as a kid on tv and all of her scenes were too R rated so she remained on the cutting room floor.

It gets bonus points for what I think was Ava Gardner's last movie. She still looked beautiful.

I am of the leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeegiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooon.

I had forgotten that Ava Gardner was in the movie as well until I saw the trailer.

Also Sylvia Miles, a wonderful character actor. She steals the scene every time she appears onscreen.

I remember people freaking out at the drive in back in the 70s watching the excorsist.
Catholics, mostly. Crying.

I see people nowadays who freak out over 6.66 popping up on the cash register, or seeing a skull and cross bones.

People are pussies.

Tsar_Bomba1: Don't forget the scariest movie of 1983


Seems like there were a lot of cheesey Satan flicks around then. Devil's reign comes to mind. Travolta anyone?

You should have seen some of the cheesy grindhouse flicks popping up in late 60s early 70s in all sorts of odd loctions. there were independent distributers that would carry grindhouse flicks, along with porno, so they could look legit when traveling.
I saw a lot of future TV and Movie stars nude due to this.
 
2012-10-16 03:08:06 PM
Devil's RAIN was pretty epic if you were a young kiddo...

Not so much now, but people melting to someone who isn't even 10 years old yet...

AWESOME!
 
2012-10-16 03:09:20 PM
Race with the Devil was also pretty epic back in the day...

Peter Fonda and Warren Oates vs. Satanists???

Hell yeah!!!

I was pretty new in the early '70's, but my bro has a fantastic horror film collection I've been meaning to raid.

She was the woman who starts furiously masturbating herself in the living room in front of everybody else.

I love cheesy devil movies. I think my favorite was The Evil, these guys are setting up a big old house to use as a clinic then suddenly become trapped in it having to deal with all sorts of horrors, the big shocker at the end was the Devil himself sitting deep in the basement on a throne.

I'm an atheist and those kinds of movies freak me out. It's called willful suspension of disbelief, otherwise known as the basic requirement to enjoying a movie.

I'm in.

I remember the one that Shatner was in, but I can't remember the name of it. Very cheesy.... green demon blood and all. ;:)
 
2012-10-16 03:49:08 PM
Best Satan? I'd say for scariest, Viggo Mortenson in The Prophecy. For over the top Satanic fun, Al Pacino in The Devil's Advocate.

Yup. I remember watching that one when I worked at a mom and pop video store. Awesome. Ernest Borgnine in there too, If I remember right.

Keep 'em coming guys. My Halloween Netflix list has grown by 10 movies already.

He was credited as the film's technical advisor as well. It also starred Tom Skerritt and Ernest f'n Borgnine. A local channel used to show it late at night quite often.

I also noticed The Sentinel was on Netflix streaming the other day because the horror section had like 30 movies at the most; and all I had either seen or were B-grade crap. I could swear there used to be a lot more.

I saw that in a theater in Tennessee two guys called me a Yankee and started to bully me. I was 11 years old.  Good times, good times.

If I remember right, that's where they got the original Michael Myers Halloween mask too. They used it for a special effect in Devil's Rain where Shatner's face was melting. They had an extra mask on the lot when they were filming Halloween, painted it white and the rest is history. I think that's right anyway.

Oh yeah, "Asylum". Looks scary. Last season was badass.

The obsession with the devil went far beyond horror movies in the 70s. Remember that it was the era of Satanic cults, backwards masking in heavy metal and an embracing of all things Jesus-y. Somewhere (and I forget where) I read a great essay which attributed the obsession with Christ and the Devil in the 1970s to a reaction against the darker elements of the 60s. In a lot of people's minds, Altamont and the Masons proved that peace and love couldn't conquer evil which meant that the Devil had to be real.

TFA: When Friedkin deployed the gore, it was all the more affective due to his naturalistic restraint earlier in the film.

I thought The Sentinel was lame, but then again I enjoyed "Prince of Darkness" so what do I know.

Scariest Satan scene in anything I've seen? Hands down, the part in The Exorcist when the mother is walking through the dark house and a shadowy face appears on the room walls right before she turns on the lights.

otherginger: Beverly D'Angelo

She plays Sylvia Miles lesbian partner. She doesn't speak, but there's a notable scene where she masturbates in front of Christina Raines (female lead in the movie) when the Sylvia Miles character goes into another room to get them coffee.
