DESCENT, THE 2005-Scary as all hell brit terror film that was copied the same year in America as the sincerely lame THE CAVE. Arguably the best ‘Monsters in dark places’ movie. This is the british 2 disc set. Highly recommended.

DEVIL RIDES OUT, THE 1967-Chris Lee gets to play a hero against Charles Gray’s villain in a classic example of the Devil Movie genre that was set to be remade but is in developmental limbo. One of Hammer’s finest films.

DEVIL’S RAIN, THE 1975-Cult horror about Ernest Borgnine trying to get his hands on a book that can resurrect the Devil. One of the all time best casts period-William Shatner, Tom Skerritt, Ida Lupino, Ernest Borgnine, Eddie Albert, Keenan Wynn, John Travolta and an appearance by the founder of the Satanic Church himself Anton La Vey who also served as Consultant!

DEVIL’S REJECTS, THE 2005-Rob Zombie’s HUGE improvement over HOUSE OF… continues the homage to 70s savage sinema. Nice retro cast too.

DEVIL’S WEDDING NIGHT 1975-Cheesy Italian horror with Mark Damon in a dual role involving Vampires, an evil ring and of course, the Devil. Lots of nudity and a shock ending. A mainstay on ELVIRA’S MOVIE MACABRE.

DR. JEKYLL & SISTER HYDE 1973- Interesting take on the Jekyll and Hyde story. Here, when Jekyll drinks the serum he turns into a murderous female. Also of note, the murders are linked with the Jack the Ripper killings. Burke & Hare also figure into the mix. Starring Ralph Bates and Martine Beswicke. Excellent score by David Whitaker. Directed by Roy Ward Baker.
DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN 1972- Sequel to the classic original. This time Phibes does battle with a group of adventurers looking for the Elixir of Life. Even more elaborate death scenes follow and several cameos from famous British stars and comedians. Vincent Price, Robert Quarry and Peter Cushing.

DOG SOLDIERS 2004- Exciting action-horror from Neil Marshall (DOG SOLDIERS) about a group of soldiers trapped inside a cabin and besieged by some very hungry werewolves. One of the best directors working in Britain today.

DON’T ANSWER THE PHONE 1980-Uncomfortably sleazy slasher about a female radio DJ receiving strange calls from a psychotic killer on a murder spree. Cult fave Nicholas Worth is suitably over the top chewing all the scenery in a performance rivaling Joe Spinell’s in MANIAC.

DON’T DELIVER US FROM EVIL 1974-French film about two young catholic school girls who give their lives to Satan and indulge in behavior that escalates to murder and one shocker of a climax.

DON’T LOOK NOW 1974-Classy Nicholas Roeg thriller starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. Dario Argento borrowed elements from this implementing them in his 1985 movie PHENOMENA starring Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasance.

DRACULA AD 1972 1972- Decent Hammer outing with a kick ass opening and ending and a cool soundtrack but fails in allowing the Dracula character to explore his new surroundings keeping him confined to a defiled church.

DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE 1968- Freddie Francis takes over for Terence Fisher in this third outing with Chris Lee. Features a classic scene where an atheist stakes the count but upon refusing to pray, fails to put Drac away.

DRACULA-PRINCE OF DARKNESS 1965- First official sequel to Hammers HORROR OF DRACULA. Chris Lee returned but decided since the script didn’t have anything decent for him to say he was content to perform the role silently. Andrew Keir takes over for Peter Cushing not as Van Helsing but as a priest from a nearby monastery. He is quite good in the role although Cushing is missed.

DREAMSCAPE 1983-NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET owes a lot to this film about experiments done on dreams revealing a government assassin used to kill the President in his dreams. Dennis Quaid and Kate Capshaw star. Some truly scary imagery especially the ‘Snake Man’.

DUEL 1971-Spielberg’s first about a man (Dennis Weaver) driving cross country assaulted by a madman in a tanker truck. Suspense builds perfectly throughout. TV movie released theatrically overseas.

EATEN ALIVE! 1980-Umberto Lenzi’s warm up for CANNIBAL FEROX. Robert Kerman stars as a soldier of fortune hired to find Janet Agren’s missing sister who has fled to the Amazon to join Reverend Jonas’ (Ivan Rassimov) cult. Cannibals surround the compound and make lunch of interlopers. Obviously inspired by the Jim Jones tragedy. Stock footage from other Italian cannibal films make this a ‘Greatest Hits’ of the cannibal subgenre.

EATEN ALIVE 1976-Tobe Hooper’s follow-up to TEXAS CHAINSAW feels like a pseudo sequel. Neville Brand runs a seedy Motel where he murders the clientele then feeds them to the Alligator in the swamp next door. Also stars Marilyn Burns (TCM), Mel Ferrer and Robert Englund.

EMPIRE OF THE ANTS 1977-Fun so-bad-it’s-good Mr. BIG production starring Joan Collins and Robert Lansing fending off giant ants exposed to toxic waste. A few suspense filled moments until you see the ants themselves. A good score.

EVIL DEAD, THE 1981-Sam Raimi’s classic about 5 campers who unwittingly unleash demonic spirits who systematically possess their bodies with the only way to destroy them is total dismemberment. Gallons of blood and gore. Made Bruce Campbell a star. Followed by two sequels. A remake is threatened.

EVILSPEAK 1982-Exploitation clone of CARRIE with Clint Howard (Ron’s brother) put upon and humiliated by bullies and teachers alike in a military academy. He uncovers a secret room containing torture devices and a satanic book that Coopersmith (Howard) channels with his computer using the demonic forces to get revenge on those who’ve wronged him. Slimy little movie with characters that deserve everything they get. Features some over the top effects including a gore soaked finale featuring several decapitations, dismemberments, a flying, sword wielding, demon possessed Howard and satanic flesh eating pigs from hell! Ahead of its time in its use of computer technology. Several intense moments highlight this drive-in favorite. Richard Moll (NIGHT COURT) plays the Satanic villain. With R.G. Armstrong.

EXORCIST-THE BEGINNING, THE 2004-One of two EXORCIST prequels made in 04. When John Schlesinger’s  film EXORCIST: DOMINION, was deemed unscary, Warners started over from scratch re-shooting the ENTIRE movie. An industry first. This one, while containing several REALLY nasty moments, becomes comedic by the finale.

FACELESS MONSTER, THE 1965-B/W Italian horror starring Barbara Steele was heavily edited of its sex and torture elements. This is the uncut edition.

FADE TO BLACK 1980-Fascinating character study that borders on slasher conventions about a film buff who murders his tormentors dressed as his movie idols-Cagney, Dracula, the Mummy, Hop-a-long Cassidy, etc… The ending is a dramatic re-creation of WHITE HEAT’S finale. Clips from old noir, gangster and Universal horror films are used to tell the story. Highly recommended.

FEAST 2005-Matt Damon-Ben Affleck scripted monster movie about an odd bunch of characters trapped in a bar with flesh eating monsters trying to get in.

FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE 1977-Three prisoners escape and take a black family hostage and subject them to all manner of indignities. When the police surround the house they let the family have their revenge. Will Sanderson (NEWHART) nails the role of the nasty, racist villain.

FINAL DESTINATION 1995-Death comes back to claim some teens who failed to board a plane that exploded killing everyone aboard.

FINAL DESTINATION 2 1997-Mean spirited sequel with more spectacular deaths and a jaw dropping, massive car pile-up opener.

FOG, THE 1979-Carpenter’s supremely creepy spook show about vengeful lepers that return 100 years later inside an unholy fog to reclaim the gold stolen from them by a town of conspirators. Similarities to Ossorio’s second and third BLIND DEAD entries are evident. The opening is masterfully done setting the tone for the film to come. Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins, Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook and Janet Leigh. A terrible remake came to shore in 05.

FLAVIA THE HERETIC 1974-Pseudo historical gore film about an excommunicated nun leading a revolt against the church. Some startling imagery and beautiful photography enhance this ultra violent Italian film.

FLESH & BLOOD-HAMMERS HERITAGE OF HORROR Excellent documentary on the House of Hammer and the making of many of the films. Essential viewing for fans.

FLESH EATERS, THE 1962-Fun and immensely trashy exploitation film sees a Nazi doctor creating flesh eating creatures on an uninhabited island.

FLESH & THE FIENDS, THE 1961- Cushing stars in probably the best version on Burke and Hare.

FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN 1974-Controversial blackly comical horror directed by Paul Morrissey and Antonio Margheriti. Udo Kier is WAY over the top as Frankenstein delivering many memorable lines. Originally shot in 3-D. A midnight favorite.

FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN 1966- Excellent Frankenstein with Peter Cushing (my fave actor) playing more of a good guy then his usual vicious self. Playboy model Susan Denberg is the vengeance seeking “creature” this time out. A most unusual storyline. One of the best. Hammer and brit cinema regular Thorley Walters stars.

FRANKENSTEIN & THE MONSTER FROM HELL 1973- The final Frank and the bloodiest has Cushing performing experiments inside an insane asylum and Shane Briant (who was being groomed by Hammer as the next big horror star) his understudy. Bodybuilder and future Darth Vader Dave Prowse is the hairy Neolithic monster. One of the goriest Hammer’s. The scene where Cushing sews on a hand using only his teeth(!) is missing from the US version along with some gore. The Japanese LD is uncut.

FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED 1969- My favorite Frank flick features Cushing at his most evil. Cushing was very hesitant and embarrassed to do the rape scene (and it shows) but it adds immensely to the sadistic viciousness of his character. One of the best scenes involves Cushing in a boarding house indulging in conversation with a group boarders who “know what they’re talking about”.

FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR 1968-Paul Naschy horror combining his Daninsky wolfman versus Dracula. Some interesting set pieces and gothic atmosphere. Ignore the misleading US title.

FRANKENSTEIN’S CASTLE OF FREAKS 1973-Laughably bad Italian Frank flick with Sal Boris and Michael Dunn. Another ELVIRA staple.

FREAKMAKER, THE 1974- Deliciously over the top piece of British exploitation starring Donald Pleasance as mad scientist creating a race of plant people. Julie Ege provides some nudity and Tom Baker (Dr. Who) plays a murderous freak. The film features real carnival freaks. A semi-remake of Browning’s FREAKS.

FREAKS 1931-Tod Browning committed career suicide when he made this one. Utilizing real sideshow freaks in a story of revenge horrified audiences then and it’s still powerful today. The DVD features a fascinating documentary (longer than the film!) on its making and its performers. Highly recommended.

FRENZY 1973-Hitch’s first R rated feature.

FREDDY VS JASON 2003-The battle of two horror genre giants was a long time coming and it’s a slight bit disappointing. Gallons of gore though. FREDDY VS JASON VS ASH was rumored to be in production.

FRIDAY THE 13TH 1980- First in the long running slasher series that sparked hundreds of similar films. Ten sequels and counting.

FRIGHT 1971- Susan George plays a babysitter who is stalked by an escaped lunatic in this superb horror thriller. Honor Blackman stars as the wife with the dark secret surrounding the killer.

FROGS 1972-Corman produced nature amuck film starring Sam Elliott and Ray Milland trapped along with others in a country estate by snakes, lizards, snapping turtles, birds etc….The frogs leading the invasion. Once the few survivors escape the island, they see the incursion has reached civilization. After the end credits, an animated frog hops across the screen with a human arm hanging out its mouth.

FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 1995-Okay Tarantino-Rodriguez movie that begins as a crime caper then becomes a vampire movie about a group of people fending off vampiric strippers and the like inside a bar in Mexico. Filled with stupid dialog but contains enough wild moments including the snake dance by the gorgeous Salma Hayek (whose name Satanico Pandemonium was the name of a 70s nunsploitation movie) to distract you from its shortcomings. George Clooney, Fred Williamson, Harvey Keitel, Tom Savini.

GALAXY OF TERROR 1981-Cult favorite about a ship sent to an alien planet in response to a distress signal and find a giant alien pyramid that materializes ones fears in the form of various monsters. Lots of gore and good effects and set design by James Cameron(!) Awesome cast too-Erin Moran(HAPPY DAYS), Ray Walston(MY FAVORITE MARTIAN), Edward Albert, Robert Englund, Sid Haig, Zalman King(RED SHOE DIARIES). Originally, the film ALIEN was to be a Roger Corman movie and the elaborate and macabre sets that had already been created, were then implemented here.

GESTAPO’S LAST ORGY, THE 1977-Arguably the nastiest of the Italian Nazi subgenre although Bruno Mattei’s WOMEN’S CAMP 119 is in the running. The third Reich decide the Final Solution should be to harvest and cultivate the Jews using them as a food source(!) This is displayed in what has to be one of the most stunningly distasteful scenes ever committed to film. The Nazis’ dine on unborn Jewish babies, become so enamored with the taste they take a naked female captive, place her in a makeshift coffin, pour Cognac over her and set her on fire. They consume the cooked flesh. One Officer becomes so aroused, she performs fellatio on the barrel of the Commandant’s  revolver! This 11 minute sequence is missing from the British version. Amazingly, director Cesar Canevari shows professional polish in some scenes. A better than usual score and the only Naziploitation film to use the word ‘Jew’.

GHOST GALLEON, THE 1973-Lame third BLIND DEAD film is let down by terrible miniature work. The Blind Templars are aboard a ghost ship that is surrounded by a sinister fog bank trapping unwary travelers who are summarily killed and devoured by the satanic undead Templars. A couple of seriously creepy and atmospheric bits cannot salvage the remainder of the film. Worth a look though.

GINGER SNAPS 2003-Popular first entry in the Australian werewolf trilogy.

GOODBYE, UNCLE TOM 1971-One of the most incendiary films ever made. Still banned in Italy today, this is the cut US version that focuses more on the exploitation elements of the film. The film that ended the mondo collaborations of controversial filmmakers Jacopetti and Prosperi. Quite possibly the most racist film ever made. Jaw droppingly offensive to the extreme. A mondo film documenting the history of slavery through the ages. Must be seen to be believed. Amazingly, you can buy this at Best Buy as part of Blue Undergrounds MONDO CANE BOX. An 8 disc set or in separated in 3 disc sets.

GRAPES OF DEATH, THE 1978-Jean Rollin stopped making lesbian vampire movies momentarily to direct this interesting take on the zombie genre. Features one of the most bloodiest decapitations on film. As with all of Rollins films, it’s slow in places but the appearance of gorgeous Franco regular Bridgette Lahai offers a welcome distraction.

GRIZZLY 1976- 2 disc special edition of what some critics called “Jaws with claws”. The story is basically the same. Christopher George, Richard Jaekel and Andrew Prine carry the film amidst some rather bad acting from some of the other cast members. A lot of gore for a PG film including a distasteful scene where the Grizzly mutilates a little boy. A major hit in 76. Director William Girdler was killed in a helicopter crash scouting locations for GRIZZLY 2 shortly after finishing the film THE MANITOU.

True that about EVIL DEAD 1.


Some would say that EVIL DEAD 2 is the scariest of the series but I disagree.

With the exception of Ash's dead girlfriend's body dancing and the "witch" in the basement, it's mostly played for laughs.

DAWN OF THE DEAD 1979-Romero’s classic. Begat a surge of Italian made clones that spotlighted extreme gore and violence over logic. The original ending saw Peter kill himself and Fran decapitating herself in the helicopter blades.

DAWN OF THE DEAD 2004-Remake to Romero’s classic original. Surprisingly good and even nods to the Italian zombie films that followed the 79 film.

Loved the original but i couldn't stick long with the remake Sad

DAY OF THE DEAD 1985-Romero’s second sequel was originally to be a much bigger, more ambitious outing but at the last minute the budget was drastically cut down since Romero refused to release the film in any form other than unrated. Still a worthy follow-up that’s unfairly derided by fans for being too talky. Some of Savini’s best effects work. A remake(!) has been shot by Steve Miner (HOUSE).
DEEP BLUE SEA 1997-Hack director Renny Harlin directs his version of JAWS (Spielberg has nothing to worry about) about genetically enhanced sharks that get loose and terrorize people at a research station at sea. Some good scenes, some bad CGI and even worse dialog. A good bad movie for the weekend.
Shame about Day Of The Dead .
Agree with you about Deep Blue Sea.

DEVIL RIDES OUT, THE 1967-Chris Lee gets to play a hero against Charles Gray’s villain in a classic example of the Devil Movie genre that was set to be remade but is in developmental limbo. One of Hammer’s finest films.

DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN 1972- Sequel to the classic original. This time Phibes does battle with a group of adventurers looking for the Elixir of Life. Even more elaborate death scenes follow and several cameos from famous British stars and comedians. Vincent Price, Robert Quarry and Peter Cushing.

DON’T LOOK NOW 1974-Classy Nicholas Roeg thriller starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. Dario Argento borrowed elements from this implementing them in his 1985 movie PHENOMENA starring Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasance.


DRACULA AD 1972 1972- Decent Hammer outing with a kick ass opening and ending and a cool soundtrack but fails in allowing the Dracula character to explore his new surroundings keeping him confined to a defiled church.

DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE 1968- Freddie Francis takes over for Terence Fisher in this third outing with Chris Lee. Features a classic scene where an atheist stakes the count but upon refusing to pray, fails to put Drac away.

DRACULA-PRINCE OF DARKNESS 1965- First official sequel to Hammers HORROR OF DRACULA. Chris Lee returned but decided since the script didn’t have anything decent for him to say he was content to perform the role silently. Andrew Keir takes over for Peter Cushing not as Van Helsing but as a priest from a nearby monastery. He is quite good in the role although Cushing is missed.


Devil Rides Out is classic but let down by (for Hammer) dodgy special effects.

Dr Phibes Rises Again-slightly disappointing after the original but still pretty entertaining.

Don't Look Now-i can only vaguely remember this(quite disturbing?) so its needs to be repeated on tv.

I'm a big fan of all the Dracula's with Christopher Lee Afro

Dr Jeckyll & Sister Hyde - superb!!!

Evil Dead (and all slashers/video nasties) i liked as a kid but its not really my thing now.Like Spaghetti Westerns all the best horror comes from the 60's and 70's.

Exorcist-watched about half an hour of one of the "prequels" at Xmas and it just wasn't in the same league as the original or Blattys Exorcist 3.I hate all the unsubtleness and CGI effects of these films which are devoid of any suspense,atmosphere,acting class and not scary in the slightest

FRIDAY THE 13TH 1980- First in the long running slasher series that sparked hundreds of similar films. Ten sequels and counting.

Friday 13th -totally crap and overated though the ending put the shits up me.Won't bother with any sequels.

From Dusk Till Dawn-i thought i'd hate this but to the contrary its one of the funniest horrors i've seen Afro

Wanna see Fright!

Some films I love in your list, particualy Romero's Dead films, The Fog, American Werewolf In London, and personally I find Evil 2 best of the trilogy, I can't stand the original Evil Dead.
