Once again, I am shamed... Only seen Godzilla in parts on TV, years and years ago. Been meaning to watch the original House on Haunted Hill for a good decade now. Better get on that. The sub-7.0 IMDB rating is shocking to me... Isn't that supposed to be a bonafide horror classic? Hmmm...

I've seen 5 from this decade!

Not bad but not good either!
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Jul 16 16:31
ah, House on the Haunted Hill, The Fly & Creature from the black lagoon are fantastic!

Xanadon't, DO watch the original Godzilla, released on DVD as Gojira by Classic Media. Just don't get the Blu-ray version, as I've heard it's not very good and a lot is missing from the DVD.

What about THEM!
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Oct 11 8:26
Great list and you really should see "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and "The Night of the Hunter" both classics in their own ways.

Its hard to find Swamp Women without the MST3K commentary these days,...

@phillydude - You're welcome! I've now added The Blob to the unseens.

Also added Them! to the main list since I just recently got around to seeing it.

Excellent list. "Bucket of Blood" is a classic!!!
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Feb 21 9:00
Them! is probably the greatest giant bug movie of all time. A lot of people dismiss it as just another 50's b movie, but there are scenes in it that are genuinely unsettling. The best horror is what is unseen and the revelation that the little girl is catatonic because she saw her entire family eaten by giant ants is kind of horrifying.
