    I believe that *Hammer Films { home to Great Horror mavens } like
    Christopher Lee { Dracula roles } and Peter Cushing { actor extraordinaire }
    and Hammer Directors { Terence Fischer & Freddie Francis } along with
    authentic sets,lighting and supporting cast deserve the utmost appreciation.
    My Favorite Dracula movie is - Horror of Dracula - { 1958 } with
    - Dracula Has Risen from the Grave - { 1968 } a close 2nd.

    What is your favorite Dracula movie or Horror movie in general.

    What ? ... Bored with too much - Mystery Science Theatre -.
    My Id { Foolardi } is a takeoff from Ghoulardi.A famous Cleveland
    Late Night { Friday or Saturday } Schlock Movie jock who hosted
    movies { B-grade or lower } and inserted hisself into parts that
    require cheesy satire.He dressed like a version of Satan and
    Professor Irwin Corey as he shot off firecrackers in his dimly lit
    studio and played funky music like The Rivington's song
    - Papa Oom Mow Mow -. years later { 2 decades } Joel Hodgson
    created a similar venue with - Mystery Science Theatre -.
    Ernie Anderson { Ghoulardi } headed off to fame & fortune to
    California to become " the voice of ABC " until his retirement.
    Tim Conway worked as a writer of skits with Anderson on
    The Ghoulardi Show.Conway went on to his fame & fortune with
    comedy shows like - The Carol Burnett Show - as well a flood of
    Disney Movies.

    I'm not much for todays version of Horror.I had a sea change
    after watching - Hellraiser - { 1987 }. I thought I'd never get over
    that level of gruesomeness.But I did.
    I still don't like stuff like - Hostel - { 2005 }.
    One reason Is I used to frequent each week { sometimes twice
    a week } my favorite Video store { Closed down for good about
    5-6 years ago }. I remember a guy once who looked and acted real creepy.
    All he cared about was Gruesome and bloody horror movies.He would
    ask when such a such movie would be available.I once stood next to
    him as I was picking out Movies from the movie bin { movies were in
    categories { genre }. I tried to strike-up a conversation with this creepy
    looking guy,just to feel him out.It was near impossible.He was Hardcore
    concerned in only one thing.THE Most Gruesome and horribly sadistic
    movies available.I thought,gee what a great way to decide not to
    be like dat guy.If watching too much one type Genre { Blood & Guts movies }
    can turn a person into dat.

    I too enjoy vintage horror films. I enjoy today' horror films a lot because of the new-age effects they can add to creep the viewers out.

    Horror like Comedy are 2 of the hardest genre to pull off.
    Yes,those genre typically have diehard fans who lust after
    simple stuff like laughing or hijinks.Or hoorific scenes of
    blood & guts or sadism.But that stuff can just as easily be turned
    into Same old,Same old ... real doggone quick.
    Which is why I can't stand George Romero movies.The guy has
    not a clue as to what good horror IS about or SHOULD be about.
    I find and have always found his classic - Night of the Living Dead - { 1968 }
    to be cheap,worthless schlock.Not one lick scary,interesting or involved.
    It is Very cheaply produced and shot and cast.
    Horror is harder to pull off than Comedy.Because it relies heavily on
    the effect of a credible storyline and the ability to cast characters that
    are believable and interesting.
    Some Horror sequel can maintain that level due to the original being
    very well written,highly interesting and impactful.
    Like the - Halloween - and - Friday the 13th - Sequels.
    I kinda worked a little with - Phantasm - { 1979 } but by the 3rd sequel
    it became jaded.
    Same thing with - Psycho - { 1960 }.
    It is just too easy to come up with a Sequel and have great expectations.
    - Hellraiser - was another example.- Hellraiser II - was just as good as
    the original.But ALL Sequels thereafter Fall down.
    You'd think George Romero would comprehend that.
    But then he's a schlock Director with no Ideas and even less
    interest in compelling horror drama.I can't think of a more less
    gifted Horror Director than Romero.Get it ... More Less.
    Meaning in the long and short of it all .... More Romero horror
    watching movies makes for less ability to actually appreciate good
    horror.More or less.

    i have yet to figure the ongoing charm of zombies.

    I mean, the whole idea of mindless consumers, yeh, okay, I get it, In fact I got it in the first movie, where it was beaten into our poor brains with a reanimated tibia, and then after that the World of Zombies and Pomp and Circumstance and Zombies and then Nation Z and finally 10 ****** years of Fearing the Living Dead,. I mean come the **** ON willya?. WHAT is the attraction? Is this the ONLY type of horror MADE any more or what?

    I CANNOT see it.

    Nothing beats the old Frankenstein movies in B&W with Boris Karloff. But ...

    I think the original Halloween and the one in 2000 where Jamie Lee Curtis appears but plays the role of the monster's younger sister is very, very good!

    I don't know if I have the guts to watch the new one. I'm a scaredy cat.

    Do any of you guys know the name of the movie where the Frankenstein monster is either asleep or dead or comatose and riding as a passenger in horse drawn carriage in a raging rainstorm. Scariest thing I ever saw.

    Rainstorms can be traumatizing. But he was probably hypnotized.
    "The Evil of Frankenstein" (1964) ???

    People talk about "Vlad the Impaler" as the original Dracula, and he gets a bad rap in history.

    Nobody mentions that he stopped a Muslim invasion into Europe, by Impaling 20,000 Muslims along the road.

    BTW, Back then whichever side won, executed the losers, and that ran into more than 20,000 anyways.

    as Doctor Rue Wakeman in - Mr.Stitch - { 1995 } or how about :
    - Frankenweenie - { 2012 }

    Yes,Indeedy *some Horror Movies can also be fun comedies.
    But NOT when one wants to see or spend a night watching a
    real horror movie.
    There are cheesy horror fare and also repulsive horror movies.
    So many cheesy horror movies that Places like Troma and
    Psychotronic Movies { Those dubbed so cheap and insignicant
    that broadcast TV will not allow showing them }.
    Not to be confused with the type movies that Mystery Science
    Theatre would highlight.Like
    - The Killer Shrews - { 1959 } I watched over the summer { own a copy }
    - Plan 9 From Outer Space - { 1959 }.
    Those are kinda worth watching.
    Whereas - Glen or Glenda - { 1953 } is unwatchable and pathetic.
    Like almost all Troma and Psychotronic offerings.
    Even a movie the owner of my favorite Video Store { closed down }
    admitted to.Said it was his favorite
    That being ... - Rat Pfink a Boo Boo - { 1966 }.


    * Mel Brooks Horror/Comedies.

    I am finishing up on a Hammer Film I never took serious.
    It's - The Skull - { 1966 }. It's not half bad.Reuniting Peter Cushing with
    Christopher Lee.They are both wealthy Brit collectors who have a keen
    interest in collecting Medievil satanic artifacts.
    However like most movie scenarios in this right,things go awry.
    I think a really good 60's film in this regard is :
    - It!- { 1967 }
    The Director of this Roddy McDowall thriller wanted to simulate
    the Hammer Film feel.Herbert J. Leder { Director } managed the camera
    work and audio special effects " to have the characteristics of a Hammer Film. "
    The film was a Seven Arts Production.They have some good films.
    - It! - deals with anger of the Golem.

    Her character in the first - Halloween - was near perfect.
    Not too good in - The Fog -. { 1980 }.
    In fact,her only other notable good acting job was in
    the comedy - Trading Places - { 1983 }.
    And - A Fish Called Wanda - { 1988 }.meaning she relies on strong
    lead characters.
