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 Tomb of Ligeia (1964)

Another great performance by Vincent Price! The story is mostly solid until the end when the blond lady comes back alive after the first wife is killed (it is unclear how the first wife being alive influences the blonde's life). Other than that, I enjoyed this movie very much.

The Wasp Woman (1959)

This movie wasn't that great.

The Mummy (1959)

Another Hammer Horror film. Peter Cushing was great, but the rest of the movie was a little dull. It went by pretty fast though.

Donnie Darko (2001)

This movie was insane. I really liked it though. I watched it in film class. The rabbit is freaky. I loved how in the beginning the town is almost directly taken from Halloween. I also liked how the mom was reading Stephen King's IT. The best part by far was the fact that Darko takes his girlfriend to see Evil Dead and that's where the rabbit takes off his mask. There is so much going on in this movie that it is kind of hard to make sense of, but overall the story was good.

Eyes Without a Face (1959)


This film was awesome!!! I only wish it had been longer. It was beautifully filmed and the ending is so breathtaking. I think everyone should be forced to watch this movie. I just loved it.

The Sixth Sense (1999)

I remember seeing this in the theater at least twice when it came out. It was such a big deal. I recently watched this movie again for my film class, and it was just as good as the first time I saw it.

Twice-Told Tales (1963)

There are three mini-movies in this film. All of them are based on stories written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The first mini -movie is Dr. Heidegger's Experiment. It was entertaining. The part where the wife turns into a skeleton made me laugh out loud. The second segment is Rappaccini's Daughter. Out of the three stories, I liked this one the least. It had some cool special effects, but the plot was too "Romeo & Juliet" for me. The last story, House of the Seven Gables, was my favorite. It was the most developed of the three segments.

Tales of Terror (1962)

Based on some of Edgar Allan Poe's stories, the film was split into three different stories with Vincent Price as the main character in each story. This is a Roger Corman film, and it included Basil Rathbone and Peter Lorre in addition to Vincent Price. The best story out of the three was The Black Cat.

Horror Express (1972)

This movie has zombies, aliens, prehistoric killers, spies, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee!!! Kind of boring when it first starts, but eventually picks up.

The Comedy of Terrors (1964)

This movie was pretty funny and entertaining. The ending is ironic. I will definitely watch this movie again.

The Raven (1963)

This film had nothing to do with the Poe story The Raven, other than Vincent Price quoting part of the story in the beginning. It was a silly movie, but fun to watch. Vincent Price, Boris Carloff, Peter Lorre, and Hazel Court are all in this movie
