Witchfinder General (1968) - 7/10

A pity it lacks the atmosphere and cash that would have made it a masterpiece. It features one of Vincent Price's best (later) performances.

Night Creatures (1962)
- ?/10

Got like 40 mins into it and couldn't go beyond. Boring.

The Oblong Box (1969) - 5/10

Yeah, it starts promisingly but then dilutes, without quite knowing what it is that it's supposed to be in first place. Un-logical on several occasions, misused cast too. Horrible special effects.

Had to downsize before we moved.  Had just about every Christopher Lee movie I could get my hands on.  Lee, Cushing, Price and Karloff. The best of the best.

The Monster Club (1981) - nightmare/10

Can you believe I fell asleep after like 30 minutes into this atrocious crime against humanity and had nightmares?

Well, it was "unique". Anyway, the movie sucks. as I must have written here some pages before.

I was able to complete this one today - it is not as bad, once you get over the fact that you won't find any horror in it. I guess Cushing gives a good performance, though the movie doesn't quite capitalize on that.


(pushing for a) 6/10

Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (1972/1974) - 7/10


Late Hammer entry, actually only released in 1974 from what I've read... Anyhow, a good flick if you ask me: it showcases the usual strenghts associated with Hammer production, with a twist of lemon every now and then. Caroline Munro's character is really pointless; why does she go to the house of the vampires in the end anyway? - To lead Capt'n Kronos there? - To answer my own question with another question: it doesn't make much sense altogether, does it? On the top of that her acting throughout the movie suggests a totally different pathway... Though she is nice to see, I must admit, in those few semi-nude scenes. Afro Horst Janson ranges from blank bad to fantabuolous, though I didn't mind.

And there's the spitting jar humiliation for the young town whore, just like in a W...

The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974) - 4/10


Very disappointing. I guess it always is when two legends try to work together: there's too much compromise.

I was fearful Dracula will start sucking bloody rice (or something like that), and now that I think of it, it would have made the movie much better.

The House That Dripped Blood (1971) - 6.5/10

No real thrills, no originality. For fans only.

Circus of Horrors (1960) - 3.5/10

When something's so dumb it almost becomes charming. Almost.
