    Due to some recent success Ash28M has had with identifying some movies I'm gonna try my luck with the brains here ! I'm 43 and there are 2 movies I can remember seeing when I was very young that creeped me out a lot. I assume they were made in the early to mid 70's.

    I don't recall much from either movie except for a few standout scenes.

    The first one I only remember the ending, where a guy gets in a small outboard motor boat and heads out into a lake. He lived in a house overlooking the lake, and there was something evil lurking in the lake the keeps drawing him there.

    Second one might be easier. I remember a basement where there were body parts wrapped in brown paper, I think they even came to life and attacked someone in the basement, maybe the person who killed that person.

    Very vague I know, but worth a try.

    Second one could be a segment in the Tales from the Crypt movie.

    yeah, that's absolutely correct. no idea on the first one though...

    Asylum is a pretty good anthology film, too...

    Yep, just sourced a copy of Asylum and that it is the one for sure. Excellent. As for the first one I can't remember, It probably was a very obscure made for TV movie.

    I strongly believe also that it's Peter Proud, there is a good bootleg copy of it out there, it also has some good seventies nudity in it.

    Just found the Peter Proud rip on CG, getting now. Will check shortly, either way it looks like a good flick regardless of if it's the one i'm after or not :)

    Well, there ya go. I just found the movie I was asking about in this thread ages ago. It was actually a woman in a row boat, not a guy with an outboard. I watched the movie and remembered it to be the same one that creeped me out all those years ago. And I still enjoyed it all these years later. The movie was .....

    Let's Scare Jessica To Death (1971)

    Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX4eZD3GiL0

    Full Movie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOWhNcK-4cs

    Youtube version looks like a fullscreen VHS rip. I found a nice widescreen version elsewhere. I'm sure most people here probably seen it anyway :)

    It definitely is Peter Proud, the cut on YouTube has nudity so I doubt it was a TV movie.

    So now I'm totally confused.

    It is Jessica if the finale involves woman in boat attacking man with a fish hook.
