As well as the cold, the dark and the claustrophobia, they find ancient, blind and ferocious predators with a highly evolved sense of smell.

Conceived alongside ‘Persona’, Bergman offers the full horror of an artist’s breakdown and crumbling of his marriage (and perhaps his wife’s mind too) – all of which is presented, at times, as a full-on Gothic nightmare, with characters walking on ceilings, men appearing in hallucinations as birds and a gruesome flashback in which Von Sydow’s character remembers attacking a young boy with a rock. We often hear about the scientists who were inspired by his 1980 ‘Cosmos’ TV series.

Note that these are not Top 10 or Best Of lists – those lists can be found if you click the Film header in the nav bar. That said, there are sub genres within it and movies from other genres can be considered to be ‘contemporary Westerns’ given that they share similar themes – think Star Wars, for instance. Oh, and Jeff Goldblum’s final walk across the flaming desert might actually be the coolest thing ever. Calculating in the three hundred or so films made annually by the many Poverty Row firms, approximately 75 percent of Hollywood movies from the decade, more than four thousand pictures, are classifiable as Bs. [21] The Western was by far the predominant B genre in both the 1930s and, to a lesser degree, the 1940s. [22] Film historian Jon Tuska has argued that "the 'B' product of the Thirties—the Universal films with [Tom] Mix, [Ken] Maynard, and [Buck] Jones, the Columbia features with Buck Jones and Tim McCoy, the RKO George O'Brien series, the Republic Westerns with John Wayne and the Three Mesquiteers ... achieved a uniquely American perfection of the well-made story." [23] At the far end of the industry, Poverty Row's Ajax put out oaters starring Harry Carey, then in his fifties.

Despite all the transformations in the industry, by 1961 the average production cost of an American feature film was still only $2 million—after adjusting for inflation, less than 10 percent more than it had been in 1950. [13] The traditional twin bill of B film preceding and balancing a subsequent-run A film had largely disappeared from American theaters. Since then, the winning genre in Hollywood has always been science fiction. Screening: Friday, March 6, 12:00 pm, Scera Showhouse II.

Going back to the silents (The Great Train Robbery) the train trip has been used famously as a murder mystery setting (Murder on the Orient Express, The Lady Vanishes), a place for romance (North by Northwest), action (The Cassandra Crossing, Breakheart Pass), comedy (The General), and horror (Terror Train). The film takes a sharp turn for the macabre in its later stages, pulling no punches and making especially creepy use of a digital video camera carried by one of the tourists. How many will you remember after a few years?
