Gregory Peck

When people are talking about the best horror movies of all time, they often use the term “horror classic.” I’m not exactly sure how that’s different from a movie that’s just a “classic,” but I think it’s somehow implying that movies where people get decapitated aren’t as good as serious dramas. I often hear the 1976 version of The Omen referred to as a “horror classic,” so I guess what that means is that it’s really good for a movie where people get decapitated. In 1993 a couple of superstar little kids named Elijah Wood and Macaulay Culkin starred in a movie called The Good Son. It’s never been called either a “classic” or a “horror classic,” but that might be because nobody gets decapitated in it.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. It’s the Old Ass Movie today, and this movie was also up for an Academy Award back in 1945 (but it lost, just like its director always did). Speaking of that director, his famous cameo is featured heavily as the hook of this trailer. Forget about Ingrid Bergman. Forget about Gregory Peck. Just remember that portly fellow coming out of the elevator smoking a cigarette. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:

Every Sunday in February, Film School Rejects presents a nominee for Best Picture that was made before you were born and tells you why you should like it. This week, Old Ass Movies presents the story of a brilliant psycho-analyst, an impostor, some trademark Hitchcock, a little aiding and abeting, and the dreams of Salvador Dali. All of these elements are wrapped up in an Oscar nominated movie (that did not win) that Scientologists probably banned from their video library.
