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...

Island of Lost Souls (1933)

Great movie. Originally it was banned and I can see why. The end has some pretty shocking scenes. Dr. Moreau was really creepy. This movie makes me want to read the book it was based on by H.G. Wells.

The Invisible Man (1933)

This was made by James Whale, who made Frankenstein. It was definitely not as good as Frankenstein, but it was fun to watch. The special effects are very good for it's time. My only peeve was that the voice for the invisible man was not very memorable to me, and if it had been a memorable voice actor I probably would have liked it more.

Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932)

Way different than Poe's story. Good movie though. I was surprised at the scene with the third murder victim.

Vincent (1982)

I love this short by Tim Burton. Vincent's voice is so soothing.

Dracula AD 1972 (1972)

The guy who brings Dracula back from the grave is scarier than Dracula! Overall this movie was okay. Peter Cushing was great, and the rest of the actors were good too considering the material they were given.

Possession (1981)

This movie was freaking crazy!!! It made no sense, but I couldn't stop watching it. The acting was great and if the movie had made sense I'm sure it would have been a masterpiece. Unfortunately, it was all over the place. All I could really get out of it was that it was about a couple's divorce and how crazy the couple is, then out of nowhere this octopus thing shows up near the end. WEIRD!!!

Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)

This movie was in some ways not as good as the first movie, but in some ways it was better. It was hilarious and the ending when Vincent is rowing a boat out of the tomb and singing "Over the Rainbow" is awesome!

The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

This is a great movie. It is funny, creative, and Vincent Price is once again amazing! It is beautifully made and the deaths are somewhat gory yet tasteful. I loved this movie.

Repulsion (1965)

This movie was very suspenseful and entertaining. The actress, Catherine Deneuve, was wonderful and intense. This was a great psychological thriller.
