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.
Cruise into Terror
Was it a “Hellraiser” movie?
Heheh, love these kind of columns. So, now you know, cruise of terror.
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
Holy Cow! I think that’s it!! How did you know that one?
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.
That was The Bermuda Depths.
The black guy was Carl Weathers.
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.
I remember of few of those shows.
There were a lot of those back in the '70s, I hear.
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.
Cocaine: One Man’s Seduction, Duel, Trilogy of Terror, The Initiation of Sarah, Born Innocent, A Vacation in Hell, Hostage Flight- with an original ending deemed so horrible, they changed it for later viewings
