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 Black Cat (1934)

This movie is supposed to be one of the greatest horror movies. I found it boring. It was great seeing Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff together and their acting was spot on, but the story was very dull until the last 5-10 minutes. I guess I had high hopes.

Zombie aka Zombi 2 (1979)

Made by Lucio Fulci and also known as: Island of the Living Dead, Zombie Island, Zombie Flesh Eaters and Woodoo . This movie was freaking awesome!!! Mia Farrow's sister, Tisa Farrow is the main star. The first zombie in the movie kind of looks like Captain Spaulding from House of a 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects. The "special effects" are awesome, and they remind me of the effects in Evil Dead... I love this movie.

House of Usher (1960)

Vincent Price, as always, was great. The sister, Madeline's, boyfriend got annoying after the first 5 minutes of him being on screen and yelling. Apparently this movie is the United States National Film Registry as being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." I liked the fact that Vincent Price has blonde hair in the movie.

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

I did not laugh once at anything that Abbott and Costello did in this movie. The only parts that were in any way humorous were the reactions of Dracula and the very end when The Invisible Man speaks. The story was ludicrous and it would have been a much better movie story wise if there weren't 3 movie monsters in it all at the same time.

Deep Red (1975)

The trailer for this movie is scarier than the actual movie. The movie was alright, but it will definitely be a loooooong time before I watch it again. There are some great scenes in the film, but other than that it is kind of boring. The music in it is VERY irritating. It seems to play at all the wrong times and the moods of the music do not fit the situations. The ending is kind of disappointing.

Snake People (1971)

This movie made no sense. There is no coherent story line. All I could figure out is that it has to do with Haitian Voodoo. In the middle of the movie a random screen shot with only the word "Damballah" (who is a character in the movie) shows up for no apparent reason. All the scenes with the little person portraying a witch doctor? are really strange. I don't think I even finished this movie it was so bad.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)

This was a hilarious movie. It is nothing like the first film, but it is still good. Dennis Hopper is awesome in it, and the scene where he goes to the chainsaw shop is priceless.

Audition (1999)

I watched this movie last night. It was very unsettling and a little confusing, but it is a Japanese Horror film, so that should be expected. About 95% of the movie was calm and quiet, but the 5% that was gore/horror was done wonderfully. There was one part in the movie where I jumped a little, and that doesn't happen very often with me.

The Last Woman On Earth (1960)

This is a Roger Corman Film and it was kind of all over the place. The story is similar to The Last Man On Earth, but some parts of it don't make a lot of sense. The woman at one point tells her husband that she can do what she wants and runs off with the other guy that is left, but when her husband kills her new lover she goes back to him like nothing happened. I probably won't watch this again.

Invasion of the Bee Girls (1973)

Hilarious. This movie was terrible, but kind of in a good way. It's just ridiculous. The trailer tells the whole story. And that's all I have to say about that.

Horror Of Dracula (1958)

 I finally got all of the movies I had ordered for Christmas. Of all the movies I ordered this was one of the ones I was most excited to see since it is a Hammer Horror Film and it stars Peter Cushing. It was a good movie. I just love Hammer Horror. The camp value, the "special effects", the sets, the actors are all so great to watch.
