31 Nights of Horror. Night 23: The Lost Boys

Being a child of the 1980s I grew up on the films of Haim and Feldman. Yep, that’s right the two Corey’s. The Lost Boys (1987) is one of my all time favorites. Set in the fictional California town of Santa Clara and known as the “murder capital of the world” because of it’s vampire infestation, The Lost Boys quite …

31 Nights of Horror: Night 22: The Wolf Man

I have said it before and I will say it again, the classic monster movies from Universal Studios are the best. The Wolf Man (1941) is one of those. It is a story about a man that is literaly looking for love in all the wrong places and is cursed the affliction that has scared countless teen-aged boys to death …

31 Nights of Horror. Night 21: Rob Zombie’s Halloween

On could hardly fathom a re-make of one of the greatest classics in modern horror, John Carpenter’s Halloween. But shock rocker and horror genius, Rob Zombie did and did it well. With the return of Michael Myers to the big screen in 2007, Zombie brought the story back to life in such a viseral way that left many moviegoers absent …

31 Nights of Horror. Night 20: The Shining

The Shining (1980) is one of my favorite movies. I have watched it so many times that I can practically cite it line-by-line. It is a great story, even though is does not stay on pace with Stephen King’s story all that much. Jack Nicholson is brilliant. He nailed the role of “Jack” and set a standard for every other …

31 Nights of Horror. Night 18: Psycho

Alfred Hitchcock’s best work, at least in my opinion, is Psycho (1960). It is the benchmark for American cinema today. It not only has superb acting with Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh nailing it from early on in the film, to cool visual effects and camera work that Baby Boomers weren’t accustomed to. Hitchcock is pure genius. He kept the …

31 Nights of Horror. Night 17: Dracula

The original Dracula (1931) has probably spawned more re-makes and sequels than any other movie in American film history. It has set the bar for the blood lusting lady’s man that wears a cape and sports a widow’s peak. Bella Lugosi nailed it with superb acting even if it looks cheesy by today’s standards. The use of light brings on …
