Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #21 – The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

The Original Scream Queen This movie was either one of the first examples of many drugs being used during the planning phase of a film, or it was brilliantly not taking itself seriously. I don’t know what was more absurd – the monster smoking a mysterious substance with a blind country man, or getting rocked… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #21 – The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #20 – Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939)

“…and some day, the people in this building will be even more corrupt…” I don’t know if this movie is oddly prophetic or if 1930s politics were just as sleazy and corrupt as today with the William Randolph Hearst’s of the ages oiling their own political machine, but this hit the spot given the climate… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #20 – Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #19 – Black Legion (1937)

“I’m sorry buddy, I can’t take you seriously with those robes on…” This is hardly a classic. It’s pretty much a forgotten 30s social commentary “scare” film in the vein of Tell Your Children, but with a few key differences: 1) It starred Humphrey Bogart in an early role 2) Some scenes were shadow directed… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #19 – Black Legion (1937)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #18 – Meet Me In St. Louis (1944)

One is not afraid to throw hands.  The other is not afraid to massacre a snowman family… I still have about 30 minutes to go, but I’ve already saw bits and pieces of this before, and one of the most random but strangely epic sequences in movie history already took place… Halloween, 1903: A Day… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #18 – Meet Me In St. Louis (1944)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #16 – The Invisible Man (1933)

“…Claude Rains was the Invisible Man…” I think I only need to watch Flash Gordon, Tarantula, The Day of the Triffids, and Curse of the Demon to finish watching the movies referenced in Science Fiction/Double Feature. This was probably much scarier before government surveillance became the norm. It was still pretty cool to see the… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #16 – The Invisible Man (1933)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #15 – Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

“Some day, I’ll outshine all of these other actors…also, some rando named Bill Murray will play this role in the future” While not technically a “classic” unless you’re a Jack Nicholson completist, I found it strange that I’ve never seen it given my love for the Frank Oz movie musical version. What a weird film.… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #15 – Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #14 – Halloween (1978)

“I shouldn’t have dropped the knife!!!” Now that’s what I’m talking about. In my short time watching horror films, this is my favorite so far. Less camp, more scary shit without being gratuitously gory. You got Jaime Lee Curtis (I thought she played Michael’s sister?), PJ Soles (Whatever happened to her?), and a few randos… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #14 – Halloween (1978)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #13 – A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

“Don’t worry, Nancy.  Soon I’ll be dead, and free to star in every Tim Burton film until the end of time…” Since I’m not as prone to fits of anxiety as I used to be, I felt like I’d give the horror genre a good old college try since it’s the right time of year,… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #13 – A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #12 – Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)

“Good, now scream with more emotion…” When Del Toro thought up “The Shape Of Water”, it was probably after a drug filled binge that consisted of all of his previous works, some cold war documentaries, and was capped off by this weird, shitty-but-effective special effects, masterpiece. He blended them into his brain and “voila!” This… Continue reading Another Classic I Haven’t Seen Yet #12 – Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)
