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 Howling (1981)

The special effects in this film are amazing, but the story was lacking. I was bored by it and had a hard time paying attention. I will have to give it another viewing just to be sure. 

The Premature Burial (1962)

This film was great. I love the performance that Ray Milland gives and Hazel Court is great also. The film was fast paced and you could feel the fear that Ray Milland was trying to get across to the audience. Great movie!

The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)

The story is a little hard to follow. It was shot beautifully though. I will probably not watch this movie again.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

I loved this movie. The special effects were great and I liked the story even if it was a little ludicrous. The actor who plays Lincoln is perfect and I really enjoyed his vampire sidekick Henry. I will definitely be buying this when it comes out on DVD. 

Slashed Dreams (1975)

This movie was so slow and boring. The whole thing is a build up for a rape scene that is not very scary. Robert Englund doesn't even show up until the very end of the movie. The movie is also known as Sunburst. There are scenes that are very tense and create a disturbing atmosphere, but the payoff is very disappointing.

Witchfinder General (1968)

The majority of this film was boring. The only thing that really redeemed it was the torture/death scenes and the fact that Vincent is killed off at the end.

The Tingler (1959)

This was a hilarious movie. It is so silly, but Vincent Price is amazing as usual. This is from Wikipedia explaining the film's prologue: 

Much in the manner of Universal's groundbreaking Frankenstein (1931), William Castle opened the film with an on-screen warning to the audience:
"I am William Castle, the director of the motion picture you are about to see. I feel obligated to warn you that some of the sensations—some of the physical reactions which the actors on the screen will feel—will also be experienced, for the first time in motion picture history, by certain members of this audience. I say 'certain members' because some people are more sensitive to these mysterious electronic impulses than others. These unfortunate, sensitive people will at times feel a strange, tingling sensation; other people will feel it less strongly. But don't be alarmed—you can protect yourself. At any time you are conscious of a tingling sensation, you may obtain immediate relief by screaming. Don't be embarrassed about opening your mouth and letting rip with all you've got, because the person in the seat right next to you will probably be screaming too. And remember—a scream at the right time may save your life."

I think it would have been fun to see this in the theater when it came out. My favorite part of the movie was in the theater scenes where the lights go out and Vincent breaks the 4th wall in a sense.
