I’m spoiling you.
Grab your disco boots. 5 films from the 1970s. Start your guessing.
#1 Chinatown (Solved by @nyderoleary, on Twitter).
#2 Carrie (Solved by @nyderoleary, on Twitter)
#3 The Sentinel (Solved by @maoiliosak, on Twitter).
#4 Impulse (Solved, astonishingly quickly, by Jason Hyde, on Facebook).
#5 Sleeper (Solved by @maoiliosak, on Twitter)
Result: @nyderoleary: 2, @maoiliosak: 2, Jason Hyde: 1. I threw this tie-break image at the joint-leaders, and then this, and then this, and then this before they got there (Dracula AD 1972), almost simultaneously. So I dare not separate them. It wouldn’t be right. Let them share the film-nerd glory.
Earlier, the brother-in-law requested “a fiendish screen grab Wednesday”. So here “a fiendish screen grab Wednesday” is. 5 films. Fling your guesses at me.
#1 House of Wax (Solved by @Fearganainim, on Twitter).
#2 Creator (Almost simultaneously solved by @lexia and @Kevnmur on Twitter. They get a point each)
#3 Gorgo (Solved by Dan Smith, on Facebook).
#4 Deep End (Solved by @MissusVee, on Twitter).
#5 A Star is Born (Solved by @Fearganainim, on Twitter).
Result: @Fearganainim: 2. @MissusVee, Dan Smith, @lexia and @Kevnmur: 1.
Wage slaves. Office monkeys. Toilers in the dark Satanic mills of late-capitalist cyber-labour. My gift to you? ScreenGrab Friday. 5 images (to begin with, others added later as you start to weep and struggle). From 5 films. Chosen to perplex and befuddle. Chosen, too, to distract you (albeit temporarily) from constant awareness of the grim inevitability of death. Yes. You will all die. ALL. DIE. Enjoy! Pop your answers in the comments section. Or on twitter. Or wherever.
#1 Scream Bloody Murder (Unsolved! It was brutally tough, in fairness).
#2 The Curse of the Cat People (Solved by Jason Hyde, via Facebook)
#3 Assault on Precinct 13 (Solved by @Fearganainim, via Twitter).
#4 The Skull (Solved by Jason Hyde, via Facebook)
#5 Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Solved by @Fearganainim, via Twitter).
Result: Jason Hyde: 2, @Fearganainim: 2. A deeply unsatisfying draw. Boo.
