All in all, I managed to talk about all but seven of the horror movies that I watched this month. One of the titles, Fanex Files: Hammer Films, is a documentary that I found at Half Price Books on the horror movies that Hammer Films produced. It provides a nice overview of their history as well as interviews from some people who have spent significant amounts of time becoming knowledgeable about the studio’s movies and the background history around the movies, as well as footage from the Fanex festivals of many of the surviving actors and crew that helped cement Hammer Films’ reputation in horror (including Christopher Lee). Interesting background on the movies and because of it I added two Hammer horror movies to my watch list: The Curse of Frankenstein and The Horror of Dracula, which was being written about at the same time as I was watching them at BrittaWrites, by fellow film buff Britta Moline (*waves*).

Total movies watched: 43
Total horror movies watched: 35

  1. It was good. Not quite what I was expecting, though I don’t really know what I was expecting. I don’t think that I’d call it a horror film. Michael Parks and John Goodman were excellent and it did manage to keep away from predictable storytelling. Not quite sure what people protested about–but then, I never really understood why people protested Dogma either.
