Laird Cregar's performance as Jack the Ripper is chilling. It's one of the few Ripper films that isn't gimmicky in some way. It treats the case in a straight forward manner. - neverending

One of the cleverest and most stylish horror films of the decade. A strong, relatively early example of the stylish, low-key look that helps define gothic horror films. - fortunato

Quote:
Bing Crosby is great, it's spooky, the animation is fantastic... it's just one of my favorite horror pieces of all time. Sure, it's a lighthearted take on the original story, but it's held up better than most of the films of that period. - Despare

House of Wax (1953)

Quote:
I found many scenes, actually the whole film, absolutely horrifying. It's sci-fi subject matter to the core, but the film was made with a bus load of horror elements. We've just got sneak attacked by intelligent monsters from outer space that intend to wipe us out completely, and we're getting beaten so bad, it looks like were going to lose. To me, this script/film is us getting wiped out by mass murder. In that way, it plays as sci-fi/horror, just like The Thing & Body Snatchers. - Sculpt

Quote:
It's not only a great horror movie, it's a damn good movie, period. Robert Mitchum's preacher is a chilling portrayal, a true monster. - neverending


Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Wikipedia Link





The Bad Seed (1956)
Wikipedia Link



Quote:
Not only a true pioneer classic for the sub-genre of evil-child movies but as a film, in terms of making, characterization & a theme that was way ahead of its time, The Bad Seed is a much deserving film to be in any greatest lists for 50s Hollywood masterpieces. It's always a great challenge to tell such a sensitive story within a limited set up & few characters and the director Mervyn Leroy did an excellent job in creating an utterly gripping atmosphere where we see a psychological cat & mouse game between a helpless mother & her evil little girl. The very young Patty McCormack playing the title character Rhoda Penmark was a remarkable delightful watch. - roshiq


The Hunchback of Notre Dame (aka) Notre-Dame de Paris (1956)
Wikipedia Link


Quote:
It's a great example of gothic horror. Anthony Quinn's performance was quality and the atmosphere and set designs were amazing. - Straker
