The House - While not a great movie by any means, the film featured a terrific comedic cast, and I was thoroughly entertained throughout the 88 minute run time.

Mulan - Not sure why it has taken me almost 20 years to sit down and watch this but here we are. Thankfully Rick and Morty and a certain sauce related incident renewed my heretofore nonexistent interest in the film. Apparently, I was being stubborn for nothing because I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't put it on the same level as some of Disney's other classic animated films but it's certainly a classic.

I liked this better than the original and am glad to see there will be another sequel.

Yes. I originally read the plot and thought it sounded totally stupid. Then I saw the cast. They saved. While not a great film, it is easily worth the time for the laughs.

Bad in some ways, but 20 years later I watched this on HBO rather than watching my Packers lose. So many laughs and great lines.

Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)

Image

The third film in the Terence Fisher Dracula trilogy and Christopher Lee's second appearance in the role is better than it has a right to be considering the title character has no dialogue. It's largely carried by the supporting cast particularly Andrew Keir who plays Father Sandor and scream queen Barbara Shelley who is in quite a few entertaining horror movies from this era. There's an effective use of mystery and suspense that builds to a sense of dread until the Kent family are confronted by their enigmatic undead host. One of the best scenes in any Dracula movie ever is one of the character's blood being drained over Dracula's remains, his body gradually reforms, then mist fills the space and his hand reaches up making for a really cool visual. The ending is quite good and I definitely rank this as one of the better Hammer Dracula sequels.

Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968)

Image

Picking up a year after the events of the previous movie a priest accidentally resurrects Dracula and becomes his unwilling servant. The supporting cast isn't as strong as in the previous sequel but there are still some decent performances plus the story is interesting and well paced. I thought making the protagonist an atheist was kind of clever and I'm not sure if it had been done in something like this before. Another exciting ending in this film series with lots of gory imagery.

Eyes Without a Face (1960)

Image

I've been meaning to see this for awhile and was glad to watch it late night on TCM Imports. It's actually incredibly well made for the horror genre of that era. The mask the main character wears to hide her disfigurement is absolutely haunting and you can see its influence on the look of Michael Myers in Halloween. When she removes her mask to reveal her grotesque facial features it's definitely shocking. There's also a scene where they actually show a doctor surgically removing a woman's face. Not only is it one of the earlier depictions of gore on film but it's possibly the most graphic and disturbing use of special effects makeup at the time. It genuinely made me cringe seeing how realistic it was. I highly recommend this one!

If you want to laugh loudly whilst being simultaneously ashamed at the horrific stuff you are laughing at 5stars.

That's the same way I feel watching an Ilsa film.

The Curse of the Werewolf (1961)

Image

Arguably the best werewolf movie of the '60s and I'm curious as to why Hammer Films never made another werewolf movie. It's not as scary as some of the other Terence Fisher horror movies but it's still an interesting and tragic story. Oliver Reed gives a great performance and may be the most endearing movie monster from this era. The transformation scene is well done, the werewolf design is more menacing than its Universal predecessor and the ending is pretty exciting.
