Seriously, a chilly rainy day with these playing nonstop, a warm blanket, some hot tea on a fancy tray with cookies--sounds like a dream day off to me!
The dependence on gothic, moody, atmospheric locations and the use of black and white film made these horror movies the ones to cut your teeth on. As children, the stringed instruments, drums and piano all made us tense up in anticipation, but nothing nasty gory every occurred. To this day, I still love running these back to back and here are some of the best of the best for mood and atmosphere....
"Castle of Blood" with the scream queen Barbara Steele, this Edgar Allen Poe story takes on a very moody feel and is totally satisfying:
How about Lon Chaney in "The Wolf Man"?
Vincent Price in "House of Wax"
"The House on Haunted Hill"
Boris Karloff "The Mummy"
Also, look for:
Edgar Allen Poe
