Well, I just watched Dracula: Prince of Darkness this weekend. Haven't seen that since I was a kid. It was rather well done. Just requested the first one in the series Horror of Dracula from the library. These old movies tend to be much better than anyting today, at least when it comes to vampires (Except for Underworld. But that is a different syle of movie.)

Anyone seen the versions with Frank Langella or Jack Palance? To my recollection, both actors did a good job at portraying Dracula, though both were very different.

I also watched the Dracula version with Louis Jourdan. Pretty disappointing version. Jourdan plays a passionless Dracula. The only cool thing was his castle (my dream home).

Also watched The Hills Have Eyes 2, which was fine, but run of the mill. I just requested the original 1977 version of the HHE, which I have never seen for some reason, and The Last House on the Left, which again I've never seen.

Has anyone else seen these?

I just found this site: Anyone else know of this site, or can you recommend other sites that you like? There is just way too much info on the web to keep up with everything!

I watched 28 Weeks Later last night. It was not as bad as I had heard, though like all movies of this genre, it was somewhat predictable. I thought 28 Days Later was one of the best "living-dead" movies ever made, and I've seen quite a few of them. I really liked Killian Murphy's performance. Anyone else like these?

Paul: Oh yeah! So did I. That is what I mean by he is so cliche. He is completely predictable.

I remember watching The Secret Window and knowing exactlly how it was going to pan out, mainly because the plot was almost identical to that of The Dark Half.

To me, King is very cliche. I watched The Secret Window last year with Johnny Depp, and I was VERY disappointed.

I used to read loads of Stephen King when I was younger and some of his earlier books would probably still pack a punch even today. That said, I did drift away from him about fifteen years ago because his novels started to feel a little too baggy.

As for Creepshow, I really enjoyed it when it came out and would probably have fun with it if I saw it again. I shall have to add it to my DVD rental queue to find out ;o)

I just watched Creepshow this past weekend, well half of it anyway. I had never seen it. It was pretty flat and unimaginative, I thought. Though the potential was there to be so much more. I have a love/hate relationship with 80s horror flicks, but I've never been wild about Stephen King. Does anyone here like Stephen King?
