Horror Fans Unite!

Welcome to my world of Horror. I have hundreds of Horror films that I regularly watch, and I am always adding to my collection. In addition to films, I also read a variety of Horror books. I LOVE all things Horror and wish to share my thoughts and appreciation...

The Curse Of Frankenstein (1957)

I finished watching this movie last night. The story line is very different from Universal's Frankenstein. The story is more about Baron Frankenstein and his madness instead of The Creature. This is a British Hammer Film and was the first Hammer Horror film in color. It stars Peter Cushing (I love him!) and Christopher Lee (as The Creature). The first half of the film is okay...I was kind of tired while watching it, so that may have influenced my thoughts a little. The last 1/2 hour-45 minutes of the movie is really good. At the end, Peter Cushing's performance is awesome! I just love the look and feel of this movie, and I can't wait to see some more Hammer Horror.

The Bat (1959)

I am watching this movie as I type up this review. I saw it for the first time about 6 months ago for free on Hulu.com (Here is the link: http://www.hulu.com/watch/188641/the-bat ). It stars Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead. It has a lot of humor and it is more of a mystery than a straight horror movie. In some ways it could be viewed as a parody of murder mysteries. I could watch this movie over and over again and never get tired of it. Luckily, I have a copy of it that came in a 50 pack of Horror Classics.

Suspiria (1977)

I watched this Dario Argento movie today with my Dad (of all people).
I had seen it about 5 or 6 years ago and remembered it as being boring.
After watching it a second time I have to say there are some boring parts
where nothing really happens except a lot of staring into the camera,
but overall it was a good movie. The death scenes are filmed beautifully
and are not going to be easily forgotten.

Merry Christmas To Me!

On Christmas day I ordered over 20 Horror films on Hastings.com. So far I have received 5 movies. Unfortunately, one of the movies I ordered was a 4 pack and I was sent the wrong 4 pack. I was supposed to get The Cult Horror Collection which includes: The Funhouse, Phantasm 2, The Serpent And The Rainbow, and Sssssss. I am not upset since the movies only cost a couple of dollars and I will have no problem watching them since it is another horror 4 pack. The movies that have been mailed to me are: The Curse Of Frankenstein (1957), Suspiria (1977), Audition (1999), The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), and The Bloody Slashers Midnight Horror Collection which includes Hoboken Hollow, Secrets Of The Clown, Room 33, and Curtains. The Bloody Slashers Collection is a bunch of straight to DVD movies with horrible story lines, but Hoboken Hollow has a famous actor in it: Dennis Hooper.
