The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll (1960)

I believe this was Hammer's first adaptation of the Jekyll & Hyde story. It has the typical vibrant colours associated with early Hammer horror films.

Hyde is portrayed as a younger and more attractive man than Jekyll, different to many screen adaptations. This works well in this film. Overall, highly recommended.

I'll admit I wasn't too impressed at first, but once I got used to Dreyer's style I was blown away. Fantastic movie, a true classic.

The Kiss of the Vampire (1963)

Very cool vampire flick, just dripping with that classic Hammer style. Really enjoyed this one.


Nightmare (1964)

I was on a bit of a Hammer high after finishing Kiss of the Vampire, so I figured I'd pop this in next. A brilliant study of madness, beautifully shot and very well directed. Loved the ending...

Watched Nosferatu(1922) last night for the first time and loved it.



I found Count Orlok himself absolutely terrifying compared to more modernized versions of Dracula.

The Haunting (1963)



There's no single drop of blood or a surprise scary appearance of visible ghostly figures but still Robert Wise made a milestone of horror out of it. This is a film that still today's new uprising filmmakers of haunted house movies should consider as a 'Holy Book' for them specially in terms of cinematography, lighting, sound effects and characterization. From the very beginning of Eleanor's entrance into the house made you feel that there was something lurking around every corner, or there was something that was going to happen, but you just didn't know quite when. A brilliant adaptation from the novel The Haunting of Hill House (1959) by Shirley Jackson where a whisper coming from the creepy walls of Hill house at midnight works in a more terrifying way than a scream.

I love Night of the Hunter.




I watched Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde (41) last night on TCM. Its been a while since Ive seen this version. Matter of fact, its been quite a while since Ive seen the silent version. I might try to squeeze that in tonight.

I can watch him knock that kid down over and over.
