Horror/Vampire/Ghosts/Witches

Salems Lot

David Soul, James Mason

This movie could have been better but it is so much better than the book

The Lost Boys

Jason Patric, Corey Haim

  

Before Interview With The Vampire, this was one of the best ever Vampire flicks, it still is today, it holds up very well

Dracula: Prince Of Darkness

Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley

As good as the first of the two of them

Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires

Peter Cushing, David Chiang

It grows on you, but it is fun

Horror Of Dracula

Christopher Lee,  Peter Cushing

Great atmosphere, Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing in a Dracula movie what more could any horror fan ask for

Bram Stokers Dracula

Gary Oldman, Wynona Ryder

Excellent, not quite as close to the original novel as I would have liked but excellent none-the-less

Twilight

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson

The book was better but the eye candy and background scenery make up for a lack luster film

Eclipse

Christen Stewart, Robert Pattinson

These really don't get worse I would daresay they do get better as they go along

New Moon

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson

Again not very good the eye candy and scenery are good

Breaking Dawn Parts I & II

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson

I really saw no reason to split this up except for the obvious cash grab, but I still don't regret spending my money

The Woman In Black

Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds

I don't know why the critics panned this one so bad.  The setting and atmosphere are great.  The acting is excellent and for those saying "I can't see him being anyone else besides Harry Potter:  well you all don't know what you are missing

The Amityville Horror

James Brolin, Margot Kidder

Even with all the controversy around this one, it still a great movie.  The acting here is great

Dracula

Frank Langella, Sir Laurence Olivier

This is how you really make sexy and scary work.  I didn't really like the story line so much but the performances were great

Werewolf Of London

Henry Hull, Valerie Hobson

I have always liked this one.  It has a different feel than the rest of them

Dracula's Daughter

Gloria Holden, Otto Kruger

I really like this one, even though I could do without 2 of the stars. Great nod to Carmilla

Brides Of Dracula

Peter Cushing

It could have been better, not enough Vampire tension but any Vampire flick with Peter Cushing is fun

Dracula Has Risen From The Grave

Christopher Lee

I loved the ending but not really who did it

Taste The Blood Of Dracula

Christopher Lee

This was OK, but it was hard for me to get why Dracula was so vengeful over so what seemed to me such a petty thing

Dark Shadows Revival

Ben Cross, Joanna Going

How could this not go on?  This was an excellent series that should have continued

Karnstein Trilogy

  -The Vampire Lovers: Ingrid Pitt, Peter Cushing

    If you like Carmilla you will enjoy this one I think.  I surely did

  -Lust For A Vampire: Yutte Stensgaard 

   A nice travel to the next chapter of these stories.

 -Twins Of Evil: Damien Thomas, Peter Cushing

   This one perhaps should have been its own story rather than part of this trilogy.

   Of the three of them I like this one the best

   

Dracula

Bela Lugosi, Edward Van Sloan

This is a must see for all fans of Dracula, you will have to be forgiving with the story line, but its simply a must see.  Its not gory or violent, no sex, if your in the mood for Vampire sex and violence with a Bram Stoker version, then see Bram Stokers Dracula with Gary Oldman.  This version is for the quiet rainy evening at home when you just want some good entertainment

Son Of Dracula

Lon Chaney Jr., Evelyn Ankers, Robert Paige

I can see where Rice got her inspired setting clearly here.  To me, I like this version, the last scene with Frank makes it all worth watching over and over again and the gowns............if only it had been in color.  The acting is top notch though I prefer LC  Jr. as the Wolfman rather than a Vampire.

Ghost Ship

Gabriel Byrne,  Julianna Margulies

This could have been so much better.  I heard though they rewrote the script so maybe that's what happened.  With this cast I expected better but for a nautical thrill it's fun.  You have to be pretty forgiving though to enjoy it fully 

Gothika

Halle Berry, Robert Downey Jr. 

Another one you have to be pretty forgiving with the obvious plot holes but still entertaining

The Fog

Adrianne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook

One of the last of the best ones.  Psychological terror instead of sex and too much gore

The Ghost And Mrs. Muir

Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison

Perfectly enchanting.  Nothing extremely heavy.  A delightful way to spend some time

The Uninvited

Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey

A few continuity problems but other than that a wonderful light ghost story

Wuthering Heights

Merle Oberon, Laurence Olivier

I love this movie, they lightened it up to make it a favorite compared to the novel.  One of the few times I give it to Hollowood over the source material

Creature From The Black Lagoon

Richard Carlson, Julia Adams

I always liked this one, awfully Phantomesque if you think about it

Psycho

Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh

Always a good one to watch but now I am curious about the book

Horror Express

Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Telly Savalas

First time in a long time I have been left speechless by a movie

The Mummy

Boris Karloff

Gave rise to my love of all things Egyptian

The Mummy's Hand

Dick Foran, Wallace Ford

Way too much recap but I love Poopsie
