Eisenhower and the Horror Movies is Over
That’s all folks! Yesterday’s Godzilla was the last review of my Eisenhower and the Horror Movies feature. I regret only one thing; I did not do a review of a Vincent Price film! Price was in a ton of films during the Eisenhower years. Shame on me! I totally owe Vincent Price a review. I will be watching classic horror more regularly from now on. I would rather watch a horror movie made before 1990 than the vast majority of shitty shit that has come out since. That said, I will be reviewing the 2011 film The Woman that just came out on DVD last week. Films like The Woman remind me why I still bother watching new horror films. The balance of February is a free for all so I will be reviewing what ever tickles my fancy. Below I have summarized my Eisenhower and the Horror Movies reviews which I will put in my sidebar for easy future access. Classic horror rocks!
I watched 22 horror films that were released during Eisenhower’s presidency and posted 18 reviews. The four films yet to be reviewed; It Came from Beneath the Sea, The Abominable Snowman, The Curse of Frankenstein, and Mothra.
I failed only one film; that honour went to Horrors of Spider Island (1960).
One film received a borderline pass which was Reptilicus (1961).
Six films I reviewed were not first viewings; Les Diaboliques (1955), Night of the Demon (1957), Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959), The Brides of Dracula (1960), Jigoku (1960) and Godzilla (1954 & 1956).
The top five films I watched for the first time during this feature were…
Corridors of Blood (1958)
The Mole People (1956)
Mother Joan of the Angels (1961)
Cult of the Cobra (1955)
Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)
