Trial and Error

Looking for a Scary Thrill?

October 25, 2007 12:56 PM

All you horror film fans and slasher flick aficionados looking for your pre-Halloween fix might want to check out Lycos Cinema.

The site includes a new horror channel with classic flicks for free, among them “Night of the Living Dead,” “Attack of the Giant Leeches,” “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” and “The House on Haunted Hill.”

Now, I don’t do horror movies. I am scared enough just watching the surgery scenes on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

But I did check out the service and can report that it works super well. (Not just really well, but SUPER well.) Just go to the URL, click on the movie you want to see, sign up for the service (it’s a painless registration) and then the movie starts playing right away.

Nice job, Lycos.

Now, can you add a channel with happy talking animals for me?
