The String of Pearls (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural)
The String of Pearls - the original tale of Sweeney Todd, a classic of British horror - was first published as a weekly serial in 1846-7 by Edward Lloyd, the King of the Penny Dreadfuls. One of the earliest detective stories, it became an important source for Bram Stoker's Dracula. After 157 years of obscurity, it appears here for the first time in book form.
This film is an incredible piece of work and will stand the test of time-actually, it has already stood the test of time by this point, given that it is 70 years old. A remarkable film that, along with Dracula, succeeds not only as horror, but as cinema. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then this is one of the most flattered films in cinemtic history. One of the all-time greats. Most totally, wholeheartedly and completely recommended.

Invisible Ghost was released in 1941 10-years after Bela Lugosi became a star on the rise starring as Count Dracula in the horror classic Dracula.

He starred in quite a few movies with Boris Karloff in the 30s, but around…

A doco-style film of a sect impersonalised vampires as it spread from New York City internationally into Italy and Japan, tattoo, sexual inclinations and bizarre rituals demonstrated, some hints on blood-sucking etc provided-well, would one really suppose a real Dracula actions to watch documented??? A very special work as any doco on specific issues-see Taboo, for instance.
Quatermass and the Pit/Quatermass 2
Much has already been said about these two movies. I just want to add that some of the effects in Quatermass and the Pit are very good, like the giant grasshopper at the end. All in all the best thing about these both is the excellent story telling. Particularly Quatermass and the Pit. When I first saw this as a kid I didn't know whether it was horror or science fiction, it has both and is told very well. I consider this to be one of the definitive science fiction movies of the era. Nothing…
