    October '31 Days of Horror' Challenge

    It's easily his worst horror of the golden period and you know it. The bullet scene is about the only memorable bit, and the ending is all kinds of shit. It's clear the cancer was setting in at that point.

    There was only a couple of genuine duds in there to be honest, a very good season of viewing I think.

    The final wank: The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (45) Not bad but fairly middling Hammer effort. Might have helped to have a few of the boys in it rather than mostly no-marks (Michael Ripper turning up as 'Ahmed' was a highlight). I await the last two Hammer Mummy films with trepidation. Whoever...

    Reviews to follow: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1981) (34) Surprisingly very good, incredibly dodgy and inappropriate synth score aside (it was the 80s after all). The great David Hemmings is tremendous in both roles, making for a particularly devilish Hyde. Good support from Ian Bannen also...

    The Mummy (1932) (31) Very good, certainly better than Dracula of the previous year. Karloff is excellent, and it was never going to outstay its welcome at 73 minutes. Gothic (32) This is the fifth Ken Russell film I've seen, and he hasn't let me down yet. Wonderfully bizarre, with some truly...

    Frankenstein Created Woman (28) Better than I expected, though Frankenstein feels strangely marginalized in it. The star players were the good old-fashioned gentleman thugs who spiced up the first half hour considerably. Also interesting how all the male monsters in the Hammer Frankenstein...

    You've got some balls entering this thread at this stage. Vault of Horror (25) This was much better than I remember it being. Maybe I took it too seriously last time, as this is obviously meant to be more comic than the other portmanteaus, at least in the stingers. Terry-Thomas is always a...

    Seems no one else is watching shit horror films. Sad times. Night Creatures AKA Captain Clegg (23) Perhaps more a historical yarn than horror but another very good Hammer film nonetheless, with a strong cast - Cushing, Oliver Reed, and the great Patrick Allen. I can't help but wonder if those...

    I'm in a real Hammer mood right now, love them. The Evil of Frankenstein (20) One of the better Hammer Frankenstein sequels, which surprised me as I'd heard bad things about this. It's steady rather than spectacular, but enjoyable enough. Cushing is his usual self and Peter Woodthorpe is good...

    Orca (17) I've always enjoyed this film, even if a certain visceral scene is pretty hard to watch (you know which one if you've seen it). Harris is his usual charismatic self, and I always appreciate a film which drags Will Sampson along for no obvious reason just to kill him in hilarious...

    City of the Dead (13) I thought this was excellent, well-worthy of its hype as a British horror classic. Wonderfully moody cinematography is the key to this film's atmosphere. Christopher Lee doing an American accent helps too. Loved the ending as well, and only 78 minutes, can't argue with...

    Yes, absolutely. There are horror elements there but its appeal is much broader.

    Kill, Baby..Kill! (11) Mario Bava hasn't let me down yet. Perhaps his most atmospheric film, it's an old-fashioned Gothic horror with some very memorable scares (the doll room scene was brilliantly done) and sequences (the repeated running through the same room and the presence of a double...

    The Rosary Murders (8) I was pleasantly surprised by this. Nothing sexy, but a very entertaining serial killer thriller starring Donald Sutherland and Charles Durning as priests. Surprisingly creepy at a couple of points also, not least a near glimpse of Durning's sweaty big tit inside a white...

    Angel Heart (6) I forgot how good this film was. It hooks you immediately and the last 15 minutes in particular are simply incredible, astonishing acting from Rourke (Christ Mickey what did you do to your face?) with a fine turn from De Niro. Few denouements are quite as sinister and horrific...

    Don't Torture a Duckling (5) Very good early giallo from Lucio Fulci. It's a very compelling story, certainly not the gorefest his later films would be but punctuated by some striking violence, in particular the brutal death of the local 'witch', which was pretty hard to watch. Of course, the...

    Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (3) Again, another film I'm very fond of. I've always thought the media had it out for this film, be it Branagh's involvement or the De Niro casting. I feel that both do a great job, the former in both his capacities. Perhaps it could stop to breathe; I'd happily...
