Purely entertaining

None of these are essential, but they're all solidly entertaining...especially if you're into horror.

Unseen horrors

Horror movies from this decade that I haven't watched yet which may end up on this list in the future.

(Most of these I have in a "Horror Classics" DVD set.)

Admittedly the 40s are my weakest decade, as I've only seen a handful of films from it (horror or otherwise). Maybe I'll focus on some of these for my annual October horrorthon. Anyway, here's how my list looks for now.

This list was helped along by the following list:
History of Horror by diabolical dr voodoo

I've only seen The Wolf Man?

Man, i have to see more... Most of the 'X Meets Y' movies are comedy right?

Wow... I haven't seen a single one on the list! (except 'Rope' which isn't any more horror than most any other Hitch suspense film). Shame on me! But The Wolf Man is in my sights, Netflix Instant style.

Haven't seen many of these, except for Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman, The Wolfman, & Rope which all of them are great.

Ghost of Frankenstein is my least favorite in that series. The relative of the original doctor in it has the least personality out of the cast of Frankensteins featured throughout those movies.

House of Frankenstein rocks!

I also haven't seen any of the films on the list. Will have to pick up "The Raven" soon. Ah... but the original Cat People... fun... hummm... "The Haunting"... "Cat People"... obviously I have a soft spot for b&w films with implied lesbian characters.

... And is it me or do I see Karloff - and - Lugosi in almost every frickin' poster?

I always consider the universal horror movies of the 40's to be a lot of fun. You really need to check out the Val Lewton stuff though, it's gorgeous. I've actually never seen that version of the raven. I'll have to check it out.
