THE BLACK CAT (1934). Wife and I usually take one big vacation every year and she usually flips through the cable channels bemoaning the sorry state of things. was appalled when catching JAWS/THE TEMINATOR and having editingplus commercials ruining the experience. Find AMC all but unwatchable these days.
Went to Maine last month and while flipping around came to TCM and seeing Bela Lugosi on a train and knew it would be both Bela and Boris. While there is a lot of stagnancy and occasional incomprehension here, the two give it a great deal of weight. Boris is quite creepy as the decadent traitorous Satanist ("Cum Grano Salis!") and Bela is so moving through most of it, although quite scary when he opens up a big case of payback towards the end. If you look closely, you can see John Carradine playing the organ. ***

Very cool film. I've never seen a film quite like it.

BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935). Still one of the best films ever, in any genre. Scary, moving and extremely funny throughout, especially with Ernest Thesiger providing the chuckles. *****

Had a Lon-a-thon on the 44th anniversary of his passing.
I only ever got in The Devil's Messenger. 8(

Which was very good! Never accept anything from Lon Chaney.

The Haunting

Robert Wise deserves a special place in the haunted house hall of fame for his work on this gem. The atmosphere he manages to create is unparalleled in the genre. Part horror, part whimsy, part history and mostly creepy! Together with the wonderful performances and Shirley Jackson's amazing source material, Wise created what may be the perfect celluloid ghost story.

Yes! Not to mention one of the best horror film sound tracks all-time, speaking particularly of the sound effects.

So true. I love the sound design in general and the score is, well...Haunting. The opening piece in particular is just beautiful
