Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)

This was a great movie. The makeup for the transformations from Jekyll into Hyde was really well done.

Fright Night (2011)

This was a great remake. The comedy from the original movie was there as well as some new special effects. The bare bones of the story were essentially the same, but all of the scenes were different which made the movie interesting.

Fright Night (1985)

The first half of this movie was hilarious. It spoofed so many aspects of the horror genre. The second half of the movie still had the comedy, but at the same time it was way more suspenseful and the makeup and animatronics were awesome.

Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

I liked this movie a lot. I had to watch it in film class today. It is not a typical horror movie because the majority of the horror is in a war scenario. The monsters are cool though and realistic looking. The story is really good for a war story.

From Hell (2001)

This was a cool movie. Of course Johnny Depp is amazing as always and the special effects were great. The only problem I had with it was the fact that Heather Graham was the leading lady. I just can't take her seriously.    The story was a little convoluted at the end, but was interesting enough considering the reality of the Jack The Ripper case. 

Cape Fear (1962)

This was a great movie. I had seen the remake with Robert De Niro which is good too. Robert Mitchum was a creepier Max Cady than De Niro.
