Old guy saw the Classics

I'm now in my 60's, but remember as a kid seeing the Creature from the Black Lagoon trilogy when each came out to the theaters. I also saw the Corman classic, Day the World Ended, that scared me to death.

I've gotten DVDs and VHS tapes of my old favorite movies and am shocked that they aren't nearly as scary as I remember!

I do think that movies like The Howling and American Werewolf in London have advanced the craft sufficiently to keep oldsters like myself going to horror movies showing classic monsters.

Looking forward to being a part of this community.

Mike
