Posted in horror, movies with tags on November 29, 2012 by goregirl

The Psycho-Delic 60s are over!! I learned a very important lesson through this feature; I should not try to jam ten years worth of movies into 4 weeks! I will post a link for the top ten lists in my sidebar like I have done for the 1970s and 1980s soon! In the meantime, here is an overview of some of the project…

PS: Ye Olde YouTube took a real beating during this feature so I’ll be bulking that up during December and I will have some fun Christmas related posts! Ho! Ho! Ho!
