May 19, 2021

In Terror On The Tube, Joel, Peter, and Allyson pick, at random, a made-for-TV horror/suspense movie that aired sometime during the decades of the 1970s, 80s, or 90s.

In this episode we talk about Haunts of the Very Rich from 1972.

Originally released on ABC on Wednesday, September 20th, 1972, Haunts of the Very Rich stars Lloyd Bridges, Cloris Leachman, Edward Asner, Donna Mills and Tony Bill.

Synopsis:

A group of people, all of whom, we can only assume, are very rich, are on a plane flying to an island resort. When they land, they are greeted by a mysterious black man, and the plot thickens.

    I can’t believe how extremely RICH these people were! So rich.

    It was a good movie. The fact that it spawned Fantasy Island AND Lost are major bonuses as well. It also led me down a wormhole where I may have found my favourite TV movie to date.
    DEVIL DOG : HOUND OF HELL.
    Thanks for a great episode and for keeping classic TV horror alive.

      Yeah, all kidding aside about the slightly odd title, this movie actually took me a little bit by surprise with how good it was… Better than I expected it to be, that’s for sure! I’m glad you found it entertaining too.
      And about “Devil Dog: Hound of Hell”… I definitely recognize the title, but I don’t think I’ve actually seen it! I need to now though!
      Thanks for the tip, Darrell… and for your kind words.
