Eisenhower & The Horror Movies – Part 2


My father was a big fan of Hammer films and monster flicks. My father’s love and enthusiasm for these films was contagious. I adored these films when I was a kid but I discovered blood and gore and there was no turning back for me. I really only started re-discovering and re-watching this period of film since I started this blog two some odd years ago. I have a ton of films still to see, so I best get to watching!

1956

Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Bad Seed are two of my favourite horror films of all time. So many more on here I haven’t seen. I’ve got my eye on The Mole People.

My reinvigorated love affair with Hammer will assure at least a couple reviews for films from the studio. The Abominable Snowman and The Curse of Frankenstein are two strong Hammer Studio entries and are definitely review contenders. The Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent; with a title this long it has gotta be good!

  1. Night of the Demon… It has been so long since I’ve seen that film. Now that’s a classic.
