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 also. The makeup for the monster was awful however, serving to remind you just how amazing that of Boris Karloff was over 30 years before.

Phantom of the Opera (1961) (21)

A particularly lavish Hammer production, wherein the great Herbert Lom manages to perform better with merely his right eye than most actors today. The wonderful Michael Gough is great in this too, though I would have appreciated seeing him get his comeuppance as he was a right bastard. Patrick Troughton turns up briefly just to die horribly, which reminds you just how blessed with great actors these Hammer films often were.

Curse of the Werewolf (22)

A curious but original spin on the cinematic wolfman story, with a very bwoar young Oliver Reed in the titular role. The guy playing the count at the beginning was particularly good, a right cunt. I had hoped Reed would fall out of the bell tower at the end, but you can't have everything. At least the great Michael Ripper died horribly.

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 interesting rotoscoped shots of the 'marsh phantoms' inspired Tombs of the Blind Dead and the animated LOTR.

Brimstone and Treacle (1977) (TV) (24)

An infamous and quite brilliant Play for Today which, criminally, was banned for a decade. Michael Kitchen is simply magnetic as the demonic intruder (the Devil himself?), but Denholm Elliott is equally good. Potter's script is wonderful; it has much more humour than I expected, and some of Elliott's lines in particular had me really laughing. A reminder, if it were needed, of the greatness the BBC was capable of many decades ago. I can't imagine how awful the 80s film version with Sting is.

The Wailing (1)

Possibly my only entry in to this season. I've long seen the work of Na Hong-jin as some of the best to ever come out of Korea. The Chaser and Yellow Sea have always been firm favourites of mine, with the former being the one I rate higher out of the two, but this potentially tops them all. A complete shift of genre to a genuine horror/thriller, everything about the piece is just superb; the location, the cinematography, the casting, the music....I could gush all day over it.

There's also an amazing sequence about half way through where I was laughing out loud. I see many people say how this feels completely out of place in the film but I loved it, and syncs up well with its take on normal people and how they'd react.

A lengthy film but well worth it.

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 pleasure to watch (not sure why he deserved to go to Hell mind), and the last segment with Tom Baker is probably the best. Good fun.

The Demon Seed (26)

Intelligently written and well-acted thriller which was a good deal more tense and claustrophobic than I was expecting. Robert Vaughn gives real character to Proteus with some wonderful voice work. The ending is pretty fucked up too in typical 70s fashion. Very good sci-fi/horror.

You'll Like My Mother (27)

Very much a hidden gem this one. Great snowbound setting, well-performed by a small cast, atmospheric, well-shot, compelling - you couldn't really ask for much more. A very good old-fashioned Gothic tale that deserves to be better known.

The Babysitter (2)

Somewhat enjoyable Netflix original horror. Some good gore, decent premise and a hot lesbian kiss involving Bella Thorne

Office (3)

Korean "thriller/slasher" so I'm counting it. Starts out with a decent premise but overall is Middling fare and has a completely unsatisfying conclusion.

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 series are enormous ugly cunts, while the sole female creation happens to be a Swedish Playboy playmate.

Rawhead Rex (29)

While not as gory as I hoped, this was really very enjoyable, with much better acting than I envisaged (Niall Toibin for cunt's sake) and better production values. If nothing else, the design for Rex is fucking amazing. He was such a roid beast though I was really hoping he'd tear people's arms and legs off with his bare hands. Alas, no such luck.

Piranha (1978) (30)

I haven't seen this in a long time, and forgot just how hugely entertaining it is. The attacks are very effective considering the budget, and Bradford Dillman does a particularly good job as the heroic lead.

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 memorable imagery, and anchored by a hugely charismatic performance from Gabriel Byrne as Byron (Julian Sands as Shelley is a hoot).

Frankenstein: The True Story (33)

If you've seen this, you'll know how absurd that title is - it's about the loosest adaptation I've ever seen. Another problem is that at three hours (a 70s TV two-parter) this is a huge slog. The guy playing Frankenstein is awful, the monster a bit better. As much as I love James Mason I've no idea why he's in this, playing Polidori for some insane reason. Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud also turn up to no end. Not great.

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.

Innocent Blood (35)

There aren't many vampire/mafia mash-ups, and after watching this you really wonder why. While the female lead is awful (and her bits with LaPaglia in need of trimmage), I've always really enjoyed this. The mafiosos are played by many a recognizable actor, but it is absolutely Robert Loggia's show, he's sensational in this. I may dislike Landis intensely but the fucker can make a good film.

The Poughkeepsie Tapes (36)

This had quite the reputation and I must say, I was impressed. It's a little rough around the edges and some of the 'actors' are more convincing than others, but I appreciated what it was trying to do. Some of the home video footage is particularly effective (the house and car sequences). I've no idea why this was buried for 10 years, it deserves far better than that, and is better than most found-footage tripe.

Ouija: Origin of Evil (37)

Decent first half with some effective scares but it kind of peters out in the second, which was a shame.

The Amityville Horror (2006) (38)

Quite underrated in my book, and better than the original (which isn't great). Ryan Reynolds is very good here, and thankfully gets the build out on several occasions. That said, I've have cast someone more lively than Philip Baker Hall as the priest. Steiger was great in the original.

Needful Things (39)

Another very strong early 90s King adaptation, benefiting from a strong cast (Ed Harris, J.T. Walsh, etc) topped by a magnificent performance by the incomparable Max von Sydow, a quite brilliant screen Satan. I'd like to see the full TV version someday, but then a near 3-hour version of this could be overkill.

Slither (40)

This was a very pleasant surprise, a fun icky throwback which wears its influences (Night of the Creeps, Invasion of the BodySnatchers, Society, Braindead, etc) on its sleeve. Michael Rooker is great as usual, and the effects are excellent. Shame the director went on to make shit films.

Don't Kill It (41)

Now this went on on the off-chance, and I'm glad it did. The premise of this is kind of genius, and delivers several sequences (in particular the beginning and the utterly magnificent town hall meeting) of shocking hilarity, I mean dangerously funny stuff. I had to pause it several times to stop myself from dying. The fact that Dolph is in this is merely a bonus.

J.D's Revenge (42)

While this wasn't as good as either Blacula film, it's still a well-acted and well-made slice of 70s blaxploitation horror, with Glynn Turman particularly good as the lead. Certainly the film gets more interesting as he transitions into J.D. Certain exchanges and scenes would likely give modern progressive types heart failure, which is always a bonus.

The Watcher (43)

Quite awful. Might have been improved if Spader had played the murderer, Reeves is his usual diabolical self. But it just plods along to its shit conclusion, by which point you've long lost the will to live.

Annabelle: Creation (44)

Very, very good, and certainly the best in this Wan universe after the first Conjuring. It felt more mature and measured than many a modern horror, almost old-fashioned in its approach. The scares are effective, and it doesn't go absurdly OTT in the last act unlike say The Conjuring 2. I actually thought the demon looked great, and the sparing use of him was probably wise in maintaining this impression.

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 Slew Auntie Roo? (46)

Reasonably entertaining AIP effort with a demented Shelley Winters joined by a largely wasted fine cast of British thesps (Ralph Richardson, Hugh Griffiths, Lionel Jeffries and a typically arseholic Michael Goethard). Slightly puzzling as you weren't quite sure who the villain was by the end of the piece. I'd have preferred something a bit more crazy but it is what it is.

The Uninvited (1944) (47)

Extremely charming old-fashioned ghost story, one of Hollywood's first earnest attempts at the genre. The ghost sequences are few but they hold up very well, and the story is very engaging. Ray Milland also makes for a very charismatic lead, I'm used to seeing him as a washed-up old cunt. They really don't make them like this any more.

Black Christmas (1974) (48)

Remains a hugely important and influential masterpiece. I just love the atmosphere of this one, the claustrophobic feel, the winter setting, even the haze of the Christmas lights add to proceedings. Billy's phone calls continue to unsettle. The ending is brilliant. I can't praise this enough, never grow tired of it. A perfect one on which to end the marathon.

Four Flies on Grey Velvet (49)

I watched this one a few weeks back but forgot about it for some reason. The last 70s/80s Argento horror I needed to see, and while it isn't among his best, it's better than Opera at least. Engaging throughout and shot with a typical flair for style, with some memorable set-pieces and signs of what was to come in his masterpieces Deep Red and Suspiria. Shame my German Blu lacked English subs for some pivotal dialogue at the end, but what can you do?

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

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 Slew Auntie Roo? (46)

Reasonably entertaining AIP effort with a demented Shelley Winters joined by a largely wasted fine cast of British thesps (Ralph Richardson, Hugh Griffiths, Lionel Jeffries and a typically arseholic Michael Goethard). Slightly puzzling as you weren't quite sure who the villain was by the end of the piece. I'd have preferred something a bit more crazy but it is what it is.

The Uninvited (1944) (47)

Extremely charming old-fashioned ghost story, one of Hollywood's first earnest attempts at the genre. The ghost sequences are few but they hold up very well, and the story is very engaging. Ray Milland also makes for a very charismatic lead, I'm used to seeing him as a washed-up old cunt. They really don't make them like this any more.

Black Christmas (1974) (48)

Remains a hugely important and influential masterpiece. I just love the atmosphere of this one, the claustrophobic feel, the winter setting, even the haze of the Christmas lights add to proceedings. Billy's phone calls continue to unsettle. The ending is brilliant. I can't praise this enough, never grow tired of it. A perfect one on which to end the marathon.

Four Flies on Grey Velvet (49)

I watched this one a few weeks back but forgot about it for some reason. The last 70s/80s Argento horror I needed to see, and while it isn't among his best, it's better than Opera at least. Engaging throughout and shot with a typical flair for style, with some memorable set-pieces and signs of what was to come in his masterpieces Deep Red and Suspiria. Shame my German Blu lacked English subs for some pivotal dialogue at the end, but what can you do?
Opera is great you melt.

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.

Panthers shouldn't slit his throat open with their claws, that would be too good for him! No. Big red ants should piss in his eyes, eat his balls, penetrate his asshole, and eat his guts! He should get the plague! Syphilis! Malaria! Yellow fever! Leprosy! In vain. The more I wish the most horrible of deaths on him and treat him like the scum of the earth that he is, the less I can get rid of him!" - Kinski on Herzog
