Iacta alea est



   Iacta alea est posted on Jokes  A nice elderly widow visits a pet shop to maybe buy a pet to have a little company around her home. She spots a very beautiful parrot and asks the shop owner about it.

The owner says,'Well it's only $25.00 but I've gotta tell you, it lived most of it's life in a bar along the waterfront. The bird can really say some foul things."

his does not discourage the woman. She buys the parrot and takes it home. When she tries to feed it the bird says, "What kind of s**t is this? I ain't eatin' this crap."
The woman tells the bird, 'No more of that language, or else."
The bird answers back, 'Or else what you old bi**h"
The woman takes the bird and shoves into the freezer. After 15 minutes she opens the freezer door and the bird is shivering violently.
She asks the bird, 'You going to behave now?"....The bird nods ans says,"Can I ask you a question?"
The woman says' go right ahead"

Stuttering with cold the bird says...'Wha...wha,...what did the chicken do?"

   Iacta alea est posted on Movies & Reviews  How about having the posters here on this wall post the line from their favorite horror flick that makes the hair on the back of the neck stand on end? For me it would be from 'Dracula". Count Dracula greets Jonathan Harker at the door to Castle Dracula..."Welcome to my house. Enter freely and of your own will. Enter freely, go safely, and leave something of the happiness you bring." It is broad daylight right now as I write this and I sill get chills.

   Susannah  Boris Karloff's "The Mummy" did a number on my tender little psyche when I was about eleven.

In the late 1970s, Stephen King's "Salem's Lot" was made into a mini-series starring David Soul that had some pretty scary moments.

   Richdet  How about this line from "The Haunting" -- "God, oh God, whose hand was I holding?"

Or this voiceover from the movie's narration: "Hill House had stood for 90 years and might stand for 90 more. Silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there... walked alone."

Shudder, shudder. Tremble, tremble.

   Iacta alea est posted on Movies & Reviews  I like Richdet's idea and my suggestion would be the greatest of all the horror films IMHO.....Dracula....I would recommend the Lugosi version as I feel it is truest to Stoker's vision although later versions had better special effects, and for sheer shock effect there was no actor who made the Count more frightful in appearance than Christopher Lee.

   Richdet  I agree with Iacta -- Bela Lugosi in the first Dracula is a must. But then, in an homage to a movie memory of my boyhood, I have to put in a word for "The Horror of Dracula" with Christopher Lee from the late fifties -- that's the one that rocketed my pal Roger out of his seat in the theater when Drac showed his fangs the first time. And out to the sidewalk where there was daylight. Thereby proving Iacta's other point -- Christopher was one scary looking vampire.

   Iacta alea est  "Dracula has Risen from the Grave" is the Lee-as-Drac flick that -seriously- had my parents take me to my pediatrician for some type of tranquilizer to help me sleep thru the night.

   MeiDei  I have two memories that I can recall all too vividly (but thankfully no longer haunt my dreams ). I have no idea the name of the movies that I was taken to by the older kids - 2 pennies for two features + newsreels & cartoons. One had a gal prone & tied to a jungle table with a giant poisonous spider gradually descending towards her (I stopped watching ) and the 2nd "feature" showed a group of cannibals preparing the hot pot for a missionary - even though I didn't watch further (delighted the boys ) I had nightmares of my Dad being the victim. Seems to me my brother got a good talking to after the first nighmare hit.
