Did they colorize horror movies?

It was a big controversy among fans of old movies, back in the 1980s, when TV networks began colorizing old classic movies. I don't recall any horror movies that were colorized, though. I wonder if there were any?

I watched colorized versions of Night of the Living Dead and Carnival of Souls of DVD. I personally think the black and white versions had a more nightmarish feel to them.

Black and white vs. color

Yes, usually black and white horror movies are more atmospheric than the ones in color. (This could start such a flamewar!) I thought that the original Castle of Blood was a lot more a atmospheric than Web of the Spider, the director's remake of his own movie.

What's wrong with my memory? In order to remember what the original movie was named, I had to go to imdb.com, enter Barbara Steele, and scroll down her filmography until I found it. What would we do without imdb.com?

Lesson from the movie: Don't accept a bet to spend the night in a haunted house if all the ones before you who took the bet died.

When you are in a horror movie you make poor choices. It's what you do!

poor choices

Poor choices. I see. It's like "there's a killer monster in the house. Let's all run upstairs and separate!" I think the tv show In Living Color did a skit about that.

Slaughter of the vampires is a movie I like, but in the scene where they are hunting on the grounds for vampires and the vampire expert says "Now it's best we separate." I thought "Why?"

Its not something stupid, but it reminds me of how the girl is running away from the mummy, and she is running fast, and he is just shambling along, and he always catches her.

Sometimes the vampire hunters lose because of undermining. Don't go into the haunted house with 5 people. Go with 50 people, so that you can split up into teams and not be alone.

In slaughter of the vampires, the vampire expert says "They act with cunning, and we must be just as clever" and then both sides act like idiots.

It's obvious that the characters always "split up" so that the unimportant ones can be killed before the hero or heroine defeats the monster in the end.
