You'll be pleased to see that KRAKATOA EAST OF JAVA is playing at a cinema in the trailer for ONCE UPON A TIME ... IN HOLLYWOOD.

Darby O'Gill and the Little People may just be my single most beloved Disney film (live action OR animated). It's just magical and perfect. And the banshee to this day freaks the heck out of me...one of the creepiest sights/sounds ever on film. Gave me as many nightmares as a kid as the ending of Aliens did when my parents accidentally let me see it. smile

And I'm far from alone -- just go read the user comments at IMDb. This delightful "kid's fantasy movie" creeped more people out than most horror films.

Great score by Oliver Wallace, too! I would flip if Intrada released it. I envy you seeing this wonderful film in theater. (How did the audience respond?)

I was very happy to see that Damian Lewis is (supposedly) playing Steve McQueen in the film -- I've long thought there was something McQueen-ish about his look.

When the rest of the country was suffering the traumas of the Vietnam War, civil unrest and the Manson murders, I was an 8-year-old experiencing the trauma of a Sal Mineo disaster movie.

Best thing about "Krakatoa, East of Java" -- supposedly Krakatoa is actually west of Java.

It seemed to get a good response. I was very happy to see it again, it was so much better than I'd remembered, even from seeing it just a few years ago.

The only thing that threw me this time was the incessant re-looping of virtually all the dialogue -- rumored to be to make the Irish accents more intelligible.

The most inappropriate kids-at-a-horror-movie experience I've ever had as an adult was seeing a couple bring their young girls (carrying huge stuffed animals) to Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???!!! This is a movie where the antiheroes kill a man and make his wife dance around wearing his severed face. Those parents have earned whatever happens to them.
