Skeletons Attack!

All right, enough nooze already.

This scene from Jason and the Argonauts, a masterpiece by special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen, is one of my all-time favorites.

And hey! When it comes to martial arts, that bit when the skeletons suddenly scream and rush in to attack your opponent–it really works! Provided you can get the skeletons going in the first place. I can’t say I ever mastered that aspect of karate.

  1. The “Valley of Gwangi,” a 1969 film, is another with great special effects by Ray Harryhausen. The movie itself wasn’t that good, but it’s worth viewing just to see Harryhaueen’s magic.
