EEGAH ! 1962

Archie Hall was a supporting actor in B-movies and westerns for over 20 years before opening his ... all » own film production company. He produced one nudie cutie before deciding his 19-year-old son, Arch Jr., was star material and started building a career around him.

Now known as Arch Hall, Senior, he wrote, produced, and directed the movie 'Eegah' under the pseudonym of Nicholas Merriwether, played a sizeable supporting role under the name William Watters, put Arch Jr. in the lead, and drafted his own office secretary, Marilyn Manning, to play the female lead. Archie's wife, Addalyn Pollitt, has a two-line bit part in the last reel.

Only Richard Kiel, playing the prehistoric title character, had no previous ties with Arch Senior. His portrayal of Eegah is one of the most sympathetic monsters you're ever going to meet.

Arch Jr. not only gets to show off his acting prowess, but also gets to sing three tunes (About girls named 'Vicki' and 'Valerie', though his girlfriend's name is Roxy.) Daddy was grooming him to be a rock n' roll star, too.

Infamous goofs include quoting a verse of the Bible that doesn't exist, in the intended-to-be-profound epilogue.

What we end up with is a drive-in classic that's a lot more fun than it intended to be.

HORROR HIGH "Seacrist Elementary School" Part 3 and 4


Cy Wistrom is a young man who had been an unlucky child in a cursed elementary school. Seacrest Elementary was plagued until its closure in 1978. During his time at the school, Cy witnessed the brutal slaughter of his teacher by an axe-wielding maniac. That, however, was only the beginning of the bizarre events. The body of a deceased former janitor was propped up in one of the school rooms. The cryptic message left on the chalkboard read simply, “to all this darkness.” There was clearly no end to the unspeakable darkness at Seacrest. Before its closure, the assistant principal had been found murdered, and a freak fire broke out on a day in which the alarm systems had been temporarily dismantled. Photographed from behind a glass door were two flame-engulfed children who were never identified, nor listed as missing. The fact of their existence is dubious. Cy’s writing is not a journal entry as some of the other stories. It is instead the honest and angry account of his experiences at the elementary school to silence the reporters and spectators who continually hound him for the gory details.



Below is from the original Poster ,
You're Scaring the Children was distributed in the mid 1990s by its creator via what he was calling shareware video. I'm no longer certain ... all » where I first learned about the video, but it was either on the alt.horror Usenet newsgroup or a horror listserv mailing list I was subscribing to. The deal was this guy would send you a copy of this film just for the asking, and you had the right to copy and distribute it as you please. You're Scaring the Children grabbed me right away, and it's become one of those films I watch once a year or so. It's not a film in the traditional sense, but more of a short story with video illustrations. The video work is barebones black and white with the narrator speaking directly to the camera, recounting the various bizarre occurrences that happened at Seacrist Elementary School.
