I remember seeing DNOTS on TV when I was just a little kid. It seemed scary at the time. Probably sucks now, though.

They even put the dog with the head on the poster!

I saw this on the afternoon movie as a kid - only part of it, and it really scared me. I thought for some reason this was called The Seduction of Joe Tynan, but I guess that's a political movie.

You're in for a treat, Quint! :-) And thanks for spotlighting Goldsmith's creepy score.

Not Elfman. <p>That scene was fucking weird, though.

Really. Used to be Damien was an ambivalent character; part Devil spawn, part innocent kid. But now he's just evil. And I don't mean Hannibal Lecter evil, all sly charm and knowing winks; I mean "Muah hah hah, cower before me mortals!" evil. There is absolutely no attempt to make the character a convincing charismatic leader. He's just a blowhard prick from minute one.

copy-paste PinkFloyd7's thoughts here... that goes ditto for me. Though sometimes those old scary movies surprise you by having actually aged well. Fingers Crossed!

haven't seen it in YEARS but remember it was decent; they should do a reboot (with Alda as the rich old guy this time)

yikes. Or would that be horse face on a human head on a dog body?

"Seduction of Joe Tynan" was from 1979.<p>This was the only film Quinn Martin Productions released in theaters. It's a bit of an oddity, with established character actor Jurgen's on the downhill slide of his career, Bissett and Alda who were about to catch fire, and soap star and TV transplant Barbara Parkins on board because she would do nudity. I've always thought, in and interesting way, this film's party/orgy scenes really capture what was going on in Hollywood around 1969-1973. Only now, since 40 years have past, is the truth starting to be told. This was an interesting time. It was after the death of the studios with their control of private lives and insistance on diet-pill popping, but before cocaine arrived and cut a path of destruction. Lots of sex, alcohol, and hallucinogenics. It wouldn't be until Blake Edward's "S.O.B.", a script what was based on events that took place in 1969 while making "Darling Lily", that we saw this depiction of a truly decadent L.A.-----later-----m

...was one fine piece of woman. The Deep. The wet t-shirt. That porcelain English face. I rest my case.

Since I love The Mephisto Waltz, I'll have to check out its double-feature partner when I finally purchase it on DVD.
