The Mummy (1959) Another great Christopher Lee/Peter Cushing film from Hammer studios



Russel Mulcahy's Tale of the Mummy (1998).  A low budget but well cone Mummy movie with a cool twist at the end.



The Mummy (1932).  The classic with Boris Karloff.

Fright Night (1985)  A young man discovers his neighbor is a vampire.....



The Lost Boys (1987) A classic :)



Dracula (1979)  SO many Draculas to choose from, and I like just about all of them, so here's one with Frank Langella.  His version has some mix of wonderfully gothic terror and romance, and a great cast :)

American Werewolf in London (1981) is a fun film.  Terror with some comedic moments



The Howling (1981).  The first one is the best, the sequels (6 or 7 of them) get cheaper and more low budget



Wolfen (1981) Ok, I confess this one is not as supernatural.  The monsters are regular wolves, but it's a decent film that puts you in their perspective which feels surreal.

Here's a film that was seriously awesome and terrifying all at once.  This was serious S*** for us back in the 80s, and the sequel "Hellbound" was equally intense and gory.  I based my version of Darth Plagueis off Pinhead before the novel came out, and I had put elements of Hellraiser into my Star Wars saga whenever Conradin battled Plagueis and his acolytes (I originally called them cenobites).  Although there is a lot of blood and gore, the mythology behind Pinhead and the puzzlebox is really interesting.  Clive Barker is quite physical with his horror.  This is definitely NOT for the squeamish.



Famous scene from Hellraiser that really introduces Pinhead and what he represents.




A scene from Hellraiser II.  Just as Pinhead influenced my ideas for Plagueis, this scene was a major influence my design for the Sith homeworld back in 2005 when I wrote "There Were Ten".  Again, warning, I find this to be intense stuff.  Clive Barker is not for everyone.

Completing "The Big 3" slashers, John carpenter's Halloween features Michael Myers.  My all time favorite movie in the franchise is Halloween 4, though most of the sequels are not quite as good.  Christopher Lee turned down the Role of Dr. Loomis and later told Carpenter is was the greatest mistake he ever made in his acting career.  Veteran actor Donald Pleasance played the part, making Loomis one of my favorite characters in the series.  Just as Jason Vorhees is iconic as a slasher killer, Michael is a good creepy boogeyman.



Dr Loomis gives the famous speech about Michael Myers



Halloween: H20 (1998) was the perfect end to the franchise, wrapping up the saga of Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis came back to play Laurie Strode one more time.  But, the studio did ONE more sequel, "Halloween: Resurrection", the absolute worst film in the series that killed the franchise and showed off the character of Freddy Harriss played by Busta Rhymes, perhaps the absolute worst fictional character of any genre, any franchise, any film anywhere.

I tried to like the Rob Zombie reboot + sequel, really I did.  He's a decent horror director, but he was the wrong choice for Halloween, imo.  His style doesn't fit the Halloween franchise.

Here's Halloween 4, a good suspense horror that left a theater full of rowdy teens silent when I went to see it back in 1988.

The Mummy (1959) Another great Christopher Lee/Peter Cushing film from Hammer studios



Russel Mulcahy's Tale of the Mummy (1998).  A low budget but well cone Mummy movie with a cool twist at the end.



The Mummy (1932).  The classic with Boris Karloff.
