I've Lost My Classic Horror Movie Vibe!! (topic)
I am a life long lover of all things Karloff, Lugosi, both Chaney's, and the lot.  But in recent years, say maybe starting two years ago, I have bit by bit lost my desire to watch the old classics.  Worse, when I've given one a shot I...

I too assumed Lugosi was doing his Ygor voice, but according to a quote in the preface to the published script for the film, Soidmack says Lugosi "played the part like Romeo" and did a straight Hungarian accent, which left the...

Re: FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN - Dissection Version (reply)
Right now I am watching this film and have to say that the one point that has always bothered me is when Talbot poses as Taylor, he suddenly has a brand new suit. Where did it come from? Did he steal it? Minor point but since this...

Rakshasa: I am all for restoring old movies to their original luster. But I think the process can be taken too far; to the point where Over Restoration occurs and we see things we were not supposed to because the picture is so much...

Re: Origin of the Rubber Head Appliance for the Frankenstein Monster Make-up  (reply)
Wich2 and bromstaker: Yes, exactly. And Rick Baker said that collodion was a particularly toxic smelling stuff akin to turpentine! It also stung Karloff's eyes. Plus it was a huge effort to get on and worse to get off! I am sure he...

Re: Kong on Blu-ray  (reply)
So let me toss this in... with the blu-ray version are we seeing the film as the audience saw it in 1933 or are we seeing it better than they could have? To me the idea of restoring old films is to give them that brand new sheen they...

Origin of the Rubber Head Appliance for the Frankenstein Monster Make-up  (topic)
Does anyone know when Jack Pierce first used the rubber head piece to aid in the make-up time it spent to create the Frankenstein Monster?  I know from watching Rick Bakers interview in the documentary "The Frankenstein Files" that...

Re: THE GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN - underrated? (reply)
If Rathbone had reprised his role as Wolf, as apparently originally intended, and Karloff once more played The Monster the film would have been a classic. But since Rathbone was too "identified" as Sherlock Holmes by then (according to...

Re: Hard Candy (2005)  (reply)
While it is a very disturbing film on many levels, I don't think it qualifies as a 'horror movie' and yet I have seen it listed under the Horror category. And now here. I mean, if she turned into a werewolf or something then I'd buy...

"The Wolfman" A Holocaust Allegory??  (topic)
A reviewer of the recent remake made this statement, "Gone is the Holocaust allegory that the 1941 film subtly presented".  This was from E! Online so take that into consideration, I suppose.  But I responded nonetheless...

I have so far read three scathing reviews of this movie and so I am very happy to see that the true believers are happy with the new film!!

One other goof in the train sequence is very briefly you can see white stuffing under Kong's right armpit! Never noticed it before watching the DVD on a flat screen PC but now it sticks out like a sore thumb! Knowing how meticulous...
