Hi Geekfreak. I'm not a huge fan of the Munsters or Addam's family, but I do enjoy some of the Hammer House of Horror films and other classic horror films from the 50's, 60's and '70's. I like certain more recent horror films as well: The Evil Dead, The Ring, The Grudge, etc, etc. Also, thanks for posting the Yvonne De Carlo tribute, Steve.

Well, I'm not familiar with Hammer horror like I am the Universal films--but I do remember liking Hammer's The Mummy, which borrowed a lot of elements from the Universal Mummy films and I've seen a few of the Christopher Lee Dracula films. I believe Dracula: Prince of Darkness was the one where Lee refused to speak because he thought the script was horrible. Maybe someone who is more familiar with Hammer horror can shed some light on that...

I love horror and sci fi...at the moment I'm actually watching a show that TCM made back in 2011 , Night at the Movies. The episode is "The Horrors of Stephen King". Its King didiscussing various films and the viewers cravings to be frightened.

Yes....but Hammer had a different vibe to them, not better or worse, but a totally different atmosphere.

BTW...Jason and the Argonauts is about to come on , TCM

Any recommendations for some good cult classics to get warmed up for Halloween? I like cheesy horror movies.

This is one of the greatest movies ever, not just horror but in general a really good movie. I give this five dead teenage cheerleaders!

I agree

Caught up now on most of the important Hammer Horror films--Frankenstein and Dracula. I thought "Horror of Frankenstein" might have been passable because Cushing wasn't playing the Baron, but I had a change of heart.

Still haven't seen Scars of Dracula, but it sounds like it has potential.

Is there anything else from Hammer besides the main 2 series that might be of interest?

I love both the Phibes films... a nice relaxing evening of 420 and Phibes is my kind of night! 

Another GREAT Vincent Price classic that has the same vibe as the Phibes films is 1973's Theater of Blood
