Creepy 70's Movie

Posted on 04/12/2012 4:05:32 PM PDT by MNDude

There's this CREEPY movie that I've been trying to know the name of for many years. I remember watching it when I was a kid. Here's what I remember:

There's some divers underwater, looking for a treasure or something. A bunch of rocks falls on them because there was a curse on the treasure or something?

They bring up some kind of King Tut sarcophagus onto their boat, and someone warns them that it is son of Satan.

(here's the creepy part) Then the sarcophagus starts breathing and you can see it's gold chest go in and out as it makes scary breathing sounds.

Then my babysitter sent me to bed, so I never got to find out what happened or even what movie that was. Does anyone here know?

Sounds like an old ABC made for TV movie set in the Bermuda Triangle. I think the title was similar.

Was it a “Hellraiser” movie?

I think it was titled "The Creepy Breathing Gold Sarcophagus From Under the Falling Rocks of the Black Lagoon."

Starring Whit Bissell and John Agar. Featuring James Arness as The Sarcophagus.

Is that the same movie where there’s a hot bikini girl on land but when she’s in the water she turns into a giant sea turtle monster or she controls some giant sea turtle monster.

And somehow at the end some poor black guy gets tangled up in ropes around the giant sea turtle monster and he begs some other guy for a knife so he could kill himself but the guy doesn’t give it to him in time and the movie ends with the sea turtle monster dragging him under the water and him slowly drowning as he is dragged along

I saw the same movie when I was like 5 and it always stuck with me

Odd that on YouTube it doesn’t seem quite as terrifying as i remembered it.

I saw the remake with Norman Fell and Ted McGinley, with Lou Ferigno as the sarcophagus. Another remake that didn’t hold a candle to the original, sadly.

I googled 70’s movie + sarcophagus + divers + son of satan.

That was what showed up. The miracle of the interwebs.

Forget the movies. Reading is fundamental.

There were a lot of those back in the '70s, I hear.

The one I remember is "Horror at 37,000 Feet," with William Shatner as a defrocked priest on a jet flying across the Atlantic with stones from a cursed/haunted castle or abbey or something.

But these things almost never hold up. I remember being freaked out as a kid by "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," with the creepy gremlins from the fireplace terrorizing Kim Darby. Saw it a couple of years ago and I was amazed how much boring padding they could get into a movie with a running time of only 74 minutes.

On the other hand, the original "Night Stalker" movie and the sequel, "The Night Strangler," really do hold up well.

Speaking of oddball cheesey horror flicks of the 70s.

As a kid I remember a trailer for a movie about a car that ate people.

Anyone remember this movie?

It was black and white(IIRC), and there were some people towards the end, (IIRC) walking into this place, but they didn’t realize the “carpet” was a cat’s tongue.

It was on tv in the eighties..I let my daughter and a neighbor kid watch it..The neighbor child had nightmares for months...oops.

I’ve seen cartoons with the “kit kat Klub” red carpet going into a cat’s mouth, but this wasn’t a cartoon, but an actual movie with human actors.

I used to love the old trailers/previews for movies when they'd have some spiel like..This movie is so scary audience members must sign a waiver that if they die of fright during the movie, the theater will not be held responsible.

That seems like the good old days now that I think about it.

Pretty much always the case, isn't it? We see some movie at 4, 5, or 6 years old and it scares the bejeezus out of us.

You watch it years later as an adult and literally LOL at the creative if awkward uses for foam rubber, blood that looks like Heinz tomato sauce, plastic severed limbs (probably lifted from mannequins), and the worst imaginable examples of "acting", directing, and cinematography.

IOW.....they sucked.

Great movie. I saw it on TV when I was about 12 when my dad was driving an old Brockway for a living. Creeped the hell out of me.

Bought it on disc last year. The best thing is you never see the evil truck driver.

They never do. When I was a kid I saw the 1953 movie "Invaders From Mars" on TV, and was terrified by it. Had recurring dreams. When VCR's came out, I got it on VHS, watched it, and couldn't understand why it had bothered me so much.

There were a lot of made-for-TV horror flicks produced in the 70's and 80's. Wish they'd get around to releasing them on DVD sometime before I die.

Oh yeah - the original Invaders from Mars. I saw that on tv also and I was freaked out for ages. I think it was because of the ending when the kid wakes up, having dreamed it all, only to have the same UFO land in the sand pit, just like the dream. Brrrr.

The Crawling Eye was another. And Rodan for some reason. And the one where the head of the girlfriend is kept alive in the lab after the bad car accident. I’ll stop now, because I could go on....and on.

They probably have been released as there are “horror movies” collections in the cheapo bin at Walmart.

They are old prints in bad shape with the color so faded some look like poor B&W films. Check...

Http://WWW.millcreekent.com.

They release lots of DVDs of these old tired prints.

I know what you mean... Movies that I saw that when I was little that scared the willies out of me, though I haven't seen them since... I am fairly certain that I would find them cheesy and not very scary, which is why I don't want to see them today...

"Valley of Gawangi," about some cowboys who venture into a lost valley to bring dinosaurs back for a circus or something, "Day of the Triffids" which scared the willies out of me, and made me want to live in a submarine are just two that come to mind off-hand.

Was it a “Hellraiser” movie?

It could be one of the Hellraiser movies, but I think the movie he's talking about is Quarantine. It was released just a few years ago and takes place in an apartment building.

“Hellraiser” is about a kid that wins a ticket to take a tour through a chocolate factory. It was made in 1932 and starred Tom Selleck.
