The Blood on Satan's Claw (1970) A couple of extremely pretty girls makes this recommended viewing. The rape scene is very well made. But I think it suffers from lack of a strong male lead (Cushing should have played the judge)   and from a too long running time. I don't like open air horror, I much prefer the great Hammer sets. Still the plot is good and so I give it 7\10.

A fantastic movie and Patrick Wymark is very powerful as the avenging puritan IMO.Surprised you never mentioned the wonderful film score Titoli?

Bah...great score? I didn't notice it, sorry. I saw this in a dubbed version, though, so maybe some of my problems with it may lie there.

The Creeping Flesh (1972) Boring as ell, nothin happens until the last 10 minutes and then you have the Caligari finale. I give it 4\10 only because of the duo and the beautiful girl. The monster's skeleton reminded me strongly of Predator.

Curse of the Crimson Altar (1968) I remember the newspaper ads showing a nude girl with black stripes on her tits, how I wanted to see this movie when not even in my teens! Evil Now I have and it's a disappointment. It is true that the version released on dvd in Italy it is not the continental version but the original british one, but there is  little to be happy about apart from the naked buttocks of the lovely blonde girl. The start was not bad, the green ambience of the altar room with all those peculiar dresses was a good premise but the rest of the movie didn't follow suit and its lack of suspense is apparent. Karloff and Lee do little and so there is no reason to give this more than 4\10.

Nothing But The Night (1973) This is lambasted at IMDB and so it's no wonder I liked it very much except being a horror based on suspense and not on gore or special effects. I admit I didn't understand what happens in the last plot twist which causes Lee's release and the end of the devilish plot but that doesn't deter me from assigning a solid 8\10.

The Gorgon (1964) I thought it was crap ever since I saw a picture in a horror film history book. I confirm it's the worst Fisher-Lee-Cushing ever. 4\10

Torture Garden (1967) Another excellent Amicus episodes flick. Just the last episode and the finale (which subverts the unwilling "victim" trick) make it a must see. 8\10

Craze (1973) This is good, though maybe a bit longish. Great cast. 7\10

The City of the Dead (1960)
- 7/10

Yes, great atmosphere as someone mentioned, and a couple of good turns of the script (though really silly at times - a girl doing research about witchcraft going missing for two weeks and nobody asking where she at? - c' mon, even my parents would ask about me after two weeks, give or take a few days). But, all in all very entertaining, even despite the blatant similarities with Hitchcock's movie that came out the same year. The ending perhaps a bit rushed. As I figured, what really makes these type of movies great, is that they never try to sell you anything that isn't advertised in the storefront. I wish more things in life worked this way.

The Gorgon (1964) - 3/10

A terrible waste of time unfortunately. The music was kinda good, as were the sets, in a generic way. In any case, not enough.

Horror Express (1972) - 6.5/10

The Thing before The Thing. Interesting enough but the last 20 - 30 minutes are terrible. Telly Savalas for the win.

Well the story bares some resemblances to TT (Carpenter's, or Hawks', depending on how you take it). Didn't mean in terms of quality of the flick.

I meant that chronologically Hawks movie precedes it more than 20 years.

True, unfortunately that one doesn't pop up first in my mind. Lips Sealed
