Jamie Lee Curtis as a high schooler, Donald Pleasance, best horror musical score. Fantastic. Don’t make em like they used to.
The scene where Jamie reassures herself that she's okay is done to great effect. And Donald Pleasance delivers as always as Loomis.

Watching Halloween II on Blu. Never seen it before. Enjoying Donald Pleasance's accent being even more inconsistent than in Halloween.
But it's working! Anyway, I cannot believe how many of these movies Donald Pleasance stuck around for

Telly Savalas was my favourite Blofeld. Charles Gray and Donald Pleasance didn't quite cut the mustard for me.
With the advent of World War II many of our actors went to fight. They gave up their wealth, position and fame to become service men & women, many as simple 'enlisted men'. This page lists but a few, but from this group of only 18 men came over 70 medals in honour of their valour, spanning from Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, Distinguished Service Cross', Purple Hearts and one Congressional Medal of Honour. So remember; while the 'Entertainers of 21st Century' have been in all of the news media lately, for all the wrong reasons; I would like to remind the people of what the entertainers of 1943 were doing, ( 70+ years ago ). Most of these brave men have since passed on. 'Real Hollywood Heroes' Alec Guinness (Star Wars) operated a British Royal Navy landing craft on D-Day. James Doohan ( 'Scotty' on Star Trek ) landed in Normandy with the U. S. Army on D-Day. Donald Pleasance ( The Great Escape ) really was an R. A. F. pilot who was shot down, held prisoner and tortured by the Germans. David Niven was a Sand . ...

This morning woke up from the best nightmare ever! Christopher Lee, another guy and myself were on campus trying not to get killed, yet trying to kill a vampire (Donald Pleasance) and some type of Cheetah woman (Sonia Braga). I rarely have (or remember) nightmares, I think that's why this had stuck with me all day. Plus the fact of who was in it!
It's difficult to listen to Abbey Road and NOT hear Donald Pleasance being creepy.

Just finished my yearly Christmas-time viewing of The Great Escape. Possibly the best film of that era.. Charles Bronson, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Donald Pleasance, James Garner, Richard Attenborough.. all in the same movie! To the fifty.
In this well-done (and frequently retitled) retelling of the tale of infamous body-snatchers Burke and Hare, Peter Cushing (in a characterization not unlike his Dr. Frankenstein) is Dr. Knox, a coldly detached surgical pioneer who needs corpses; Donald Pleasance and George Rose play the gruesome pair who are only too ready to oblige with a ready supply. This cinematic outing came courtesy of producers Robert S. Baker and Monty Berman, the team responsible for a brief run of tasty horrors--including such titles as BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE (shown Thursday night) and last night's JACK THE RIPPER--and director John Gilling, who'd turn in several more after moving on to Hammer. Considered very graphic for its time, with an atmospheric evocation of 19th Century Edinburgh in all its dismal glory, here's MANIA (or whatever they're calling it this week).
New month, new list. The month of December is always Christmas related, but I'm not going that route... Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Films: (this list won't any movies that are so bad, they're good [i.e. The Room]) 10. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008): I don't even really like this movie, I'll watch it if it's part of an Indy marathon, but I have never once actually thought in my head "hey lets watch Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". But it did make the list because it does have some awesome parts in it. I just think it looked too fake. 9. Jack and Jill (2011): Believe me when I say that I think the reason people didn't like this movie because Adam Sandler is dressed like a woman, or that the reason I love the movie is because I love Adam Sandler and refuse to believe he could make a bad movie... moving on. 8. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995): This movie *** I'll admit that, and I actually enjoy this movie. A question that I get asked quite a bit is why do you like this movi .. ...
When performed in 1954 on Broadway the reviewer from the New York Herald Tribune said that the play was, "A walloping success. The finish is done with such dedicated conviction, such patent plausibility, such respect for the medium as a thing of beauty that you are apt to find yourself gasping out loud." This play is so good it has been filmed and adapted for TV. Famous actors who have played roles in it include Marlene Dietrich, Edward G Robinson, Donald Pleasance, Charles Laughton, Deborah Kerr, Tyrone Power and Ralph Richardson. It has a big cast, and if you get in you MUST swear secrecy on the twist...it is one of Agatha Christie's BEST.

I'm watching the movie, "Fantastic Voyage". I remember first seeing it many years ago, and my heart absolutely pounding when Donald Pleasance was being consumed by that white corpuscle!
I think I already like Telly Savalas better than Donald Pleasance. Is that blasphemy?
For Your Eyes Only- one of the most impressive Bond's, filmed well- scenes were great- well paced and generally a good film. Even the locations were stunning. Downside is that as good as it was, it had no real WOW factor- seemed like 'just another Roger Moore sequel'. Despite being really really good, especially with some scenes of genuine tension when Bond was repeatedly targeted for assassination, it was undermined by the fact previous Bond's had more memorable villains and more dazzling plots. Moore had nothing to really bounce off. Exchange Julian Glover and his character for the likes of legendary Donald Pleasance or Christopher Lee and you've got easily one of the best Bonds. Blofeld at the start wet my appetite for more SPECTRE but sadly he got finished off. The scene with Maggie talking to a parrot was classic also.
I decided to stay away from the madness. Direct TV is having free premium channels this week. I finished watching Dracula from 1979 with Laurence Olivier & Donald Pleasance. Corny but okay. :-)
26. Which horror movie franchise began in 1978 starring Donald Pleasance and Tony Curtis daughter?
Finally a sequel that is one of my favorites. On YouTube there is a little video called Halloween 5 the revenge of Michael Myers free candy candy candy! This is one of my favorites. Ellie Cornell is back as Rachel Danielle Harris is back as Jamie and Donald pleasance is back in his 4th film in the franchise as Dr. Loomis. The end of four is show in the beginning just a little side note.
Watching Argento film Phenomena - has music from Goblin, along with Iron Maiden and Motorhead. The music is so badly placed, it is almost comedic. Oh, and it has the girl from Labyrinth and Donald Pleasance (with a bad Scottish accent)
My favorite scene from the 1979 version of DRACULA starring Frank Langella and Donald Pleasance. F'ing SCARY!
Donald Pleasance and James Garner's arc in THE Great Escape is just heartbreaking. Lovely. But utterly heartbreaking.

Hoo-kay, everyone. I think this nonsense is over. Sorry if I overreacted -- I can't stand people threatening people on my page. Also, I think I may have given a needy troll what they wanted. Oh well. You live and learn, or you don't live long. Thank you all for understanding. I wish I had a clip of Donald Pleasance saying, "The evil is GONE!" from Halloween. I'm sure one of you fine people will post it. Happy Mother's Day.

Tonight's feature is the Dario Argento masterpiece "Phenomena" starring Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasance.

As has been my habit of late, last night I used our Roku unit to access Creepster-TV and watch one of their collection of public domain titles. And what I got was a pretty *** good movie. It is THE RISK, and was made in 1960 England by Hammer Studios, which means it had Peter Cushing in a role! Professor Sewell (Cushing) heads a group of scientists who have come up with some viral counter-agents to strains of the bubonic plague that were still afflicting the Third World at the time, and they are about to publish their research findings when they are told that their work has been put on the government's Official Secrets List. Why? Because the ministry of defense has decided that such information could be used for biological warfare (although it isn't put in quite those terms). Sewell is outraged and disagrees with the bureaucrat even as he tells him they will comply, and thus the research team is put under the security microscope. One of the scientists. Dr. Marriott, is attracted to the lone female on the ...

In response to seeing another country singer coming to WV... "AHHAHHGGG! WHY CAN'T WE GET ANY GOOD BANDS IN WEST VIRGINIA" - Jessica Frances Posey. I agree with this, no offence to those who like modern country.
Donald Pleasance is a tea-drinking copper with a working fireplace in his office. What's not to like?
'Death Line' on Horror Channel. Excellent 1972 flick with Donald Pleasance about a cannibal on the London Underground! ''Mind the Doors!''
Death Line now that's a proper horror film on the horror channel now. Donald Pleasance and Christopher Lee and cannibals on the underground.
Best film quote ever - Donald Pleasance in Deathline shouting out aloud "Beards!" for no reason at all, at a character with a beard :)
Catch Christopher Lee and Donald Pleasance in LINE at 9pm
One of my favourite horror films of all time is on tonight at 9pm. Donald Pleasance is amazing in this film!

If you're a lady and you look like Donald Pleasance, well.it really *** for you. I'm sorry.
Terror in the Aisles remastered in HD.
Asteroid will make closest flyby of Earth yet on Feb 15th Time for Donald Pleasance 'WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE' outburst
So far the accents in this thing could cut stained glass. But there's poor old Donald Pleasance, here to help things tick along.
After the drudgery of this film, I kinda miss Donald Pleasance's migrating scar.
Donald Pleasance in, well, loads of guff he appeared in.
"Find how to get immense pleasance" Oh, I hope they mean Donald Pleasence.
I've just been watching my sleeping son. When do babies stop looking like Donald Pleasance?
Hard to believe this was SNL. Even Donald Pleasance seems a bit... unhinged.
Time to get back to Bond and those tracks. BFN!
So, I'm watching the original "Wolf Man", starring lon chaney jr. I kept looking at the guy playing his father in the movie and couldn't quite place him. Y'all it's the dude with no neck from The Rocky Horror Picture Show" ("That man has no neck! Where's your f-ing neck?!?!)
The actor Donald Pleasance and the tennis player Fred Perry both died on 2 February 1995.
The 1979 version of "All Quiet On The Western Front" was nevertheless v.good, with Donald Pleasance as the teacher & Ian Holm as Himmelstoss
Watched "You only live twice", the last Eon produced Bond movie starring Sean Connery. Great opening song by Nancy Sinatra, great action sequences especially with the mini helicopter. The conversion of Bond into a Japanese man was quite a stretch though. Donald Pleasance as Blowfeld is a little too over the top. Almost wish it was Dr. Evil instead. Up next is "on her majesties secret service".
The Fantastic Voyage, Raquel Welch, Donald Pleasance- nuff said! Haven't seen it in about 20 yrs. Wonder what happens...??
Or whether Donald Pleasance & Raquel Welch is on the micro-sub destroying the blood clot in Hillary's leg!
Horror Movie Fun Fact - Both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee were offered the role of Dr. Loomis in 1978′s Halloween before it was given to Donald Pleasance.
and Ernest Borgine, Adrienne Barbeau, Issac Hayes, Donald Pleasance, Lee Van Cleef - all well-known when the film came out.
1982: An underrated, relatively unheard-of piece from '82. Three mental patients escape from the hospital to invade the home of their young new doctor who they believe wronged them in "Alone In The Dark". Starring Jack Palance, Martin Landau, and Donald Pleasance!
currently at the Cistern Chapel looking up at the MikeNJello on the ceiling while the cast of a Fantastic Voyage including Donald Pleasance are battling valiantly to deport that Despotic Dictator and erstwhile Italian Celebrity Chef and Pantomime stubborn Comestible.AVOCADO DAVINCI.Subjecting the crew to a deseverage(a combination of a desert and a hot drink is not advisable at this point).
On a tip from a stranger, saw "Wake in Fright" (an Australian film from 1971) today at the Denver FilmCenter. My first thought is that it was kind of like the sequence in "Blue Velvet" where Frank and his goons kidnap Kyle MacLachlan, except scarier and dirtier and nightmarishly longer. Donald Pleasance proves, amazingly, that he can be more frightening than Michael Myers. A remarkable film, but fair warning: animal lovers should avoid this movie like the plague.
What do Donald Pleasance, Telly Savalas & Charles Gray have in common?

Rob Zombie, you destroyed Dr. Loomis' character. Donald Pleasance is rolling in his grave...
My favorite scene from "Halloween". Donald Pleasance looks so god damned pleased with himself.
The excellent Danielle Harris ( ) on AMC right now. Halloween 5. And the awesome Donald Pleasance.
Quote of the day: Was that the boogeyman? As a matter of fact it was.-Jamie Lee Curtis & Donald Pleasance (Halloween)
Now I know what's missing! I haven't watched the original Halloween yet this year!! All the stress from work situation and the "Frahnkenshturm" (kudos to Uei Lei for making me think of that) and I completely missed a young fruity Jamie Lee Curtis and strangely compelling Donald Pleasance, and the effervescently creepy theme music.
Halloween Movie of the Day: Halloween (1978) Ya you all saw it coming, John Carpenter's classic that ultimately began the slasher genre and became one of the most iconic films in American history. The story begins Halloween, 1963 when a young Michael Myers murders his sister with a knife shortly after she has sex with her boyfriend (that part has nothing to do with the plot it's just an element that became a cliche). The scariest bit of it is that for the entire first murder, it is shown in first person and you don't know it's Michael until his parents find him outside the house. Michael is sent to a sanitarium under the care of Dr. Loomis (the legendary Donald Pleasance) and he goes catatonic. 15 years later, Michael awakes from his catatonic state and drives to his old home after stealing a car and a uniform from two victims. Meanwhile, teenager Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, interesting fact, her mother was Janet Leigh, the shower victim in Psycho) sees begins seeing Michael everywhere as she goe ...
Little Giant Ladders
Skyfall is absolutely brilliant. Javier Bardem must rank alongside Donald Pleasance as one of the best Bond villains ever.
My favorite movie is on the original Halloween movie..Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasance...I Love this movie !
True. If it had been Connery not Lazenby and Donald Pleasance not Telly Savalas it would be a no-brainer.
I can't decide who I want horror brit makeouts with more: Christopher Lee, David Warner, Donald Pleasance...
Tonight's feature film is the "much better than it should have been" Halloween 4 The Return of Michael Myers. Definitely below the quality of the original film, part 4 serves as a reboot of the series after the misguided Part 3, where they tried to do without Myers altogether. The scares here are decent, despite not being particularly original. It does help that Donald Pleasance is back in the role of Loomis and chasing after Myers with the same frentic passion as the first couple of films. Ellie Cornell is good in her role, but the real strenght for the films is Danielle Harris. So good in her role as Jamie, Harris has achieved a bit of cult status. John Carpenter's touch as a director is missed here, but Part 4 succeeds as a worthy sequel. Unfortunately the reboot would be short lived as the series devolved in quality as the numbers increased and would only get back on track with the return of Jamie Lee Curtis.
I've seen it about a dozen times, but I couldn't resist a new collector's edition DVD of the original Halloween II! To change things up, they finally released the much sought-after TV cut of the movie. It takes out lots of violence and such, but instead adds in TONS of new story and character bits. Which yeah, the movie needs it. I'll be blunt, while being one of my favorite movie series, Halloween doesn't have a lot of good entries (what horror series does, really?) and pt. II is absolutely no exception. I'd have trouble reccomending it on it's own, as it's oddly paced and really misses the point of John Carpenter's immortal classic that preceded it. I would, however, reccomend it to ANYONE who enjoys the first one because it takes place IMMEDIATELY after it. 1 and 2 are companion films, and complete the tale of "the night HE came home". Good music, some fun kills, and the always-reliable Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasance keep this one afloat so.. if you're a fan of "The Shape" as he's come to be cal ...
Prince of Darkness-Great John Carpenter flick. Has a really good cast (several from Big Trouble in Little China), Donald Pleasance included. It's all about a secret the Catholic church has been keeping and it's about to come out and destroy us. I like the music (done by Mr. Carpenter) and I really enjoyed the lack of gore. Sure there's blood, but it was almost done artistically. This could have been a very scary film when it first came out. Still worth watching...always nice to see Alice Cooper step into the frame. :)
It'll always be Donald Pleasance for me. Maybe he had plastic surgery between films? Plus, Max Von Sydow shouldn't count.
Movie Quote/Trivia of the Day of my dear reader felt that although today's movie was great and had scary moments, it wasn't a true horror film and technically it would be considered Sci-Fi. So with that in mind, I now give you a true horror film from one of the greatest directors of the genre, John Carpenter. MacReady - I know I'm human. And if you were all these things, then you'd just attack me right now, so some of you are still human. This thing doesn't want to show itself, it wants to hide inside an imitation. It'll fight if it has to, but it's vulnerable out in the open. If it takes us over, then it has no more enemies, nobody left to kill it. The storm's hitting us in 6 hours. We're going to find out who's who. -MacReady (Kurt Russell in John Carpenter's The Thing) Did you know? The film was originally banned when released in Finland. The original movie, The Thing from Another World, took place at the north pole. This film takes place at the south pole. Donald Pleasance was the original choice to p ...
Despite my overall feelings on this film, I have to say, Telly Savalas does play the better bad guy than Donald Pleasance.
He doesn't come across we'll on screen either. Donald Pleasance with flour.
While I get myself together, here's a video of Donald Pleasance scaring the crap out of British children.
