I really enjoyed FAUST-but of course I love old German silent films. Murnau also did the classic NOSFERATU (1922) and Conrad Veidt's DER JANUSKOPF (1920) -a version of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (which also featured Bela Lugosi) that is now lost. It saddens me to think if he had lived longer (he died in a car accident in 1931) what more horrors he could have given us.

No-Conrad Veidt did. Bela played his butler.



Veidt is center-Lugosi is to the far right.


Veidt's character's name was changed to Dr. Warren and Mr.O'Conner due to Murnau's failure to get a copyright-hence all copies of the film were ordered destroyed by the courts.
 Murnau also failed to secure the rights to NOSFERATU-and Bram Stoker's widow sued him as well-and-again-all copies of that film were ordered destroyed. Thankfully-a few prints survived of that classic.

You're slacking man.  You gotta get about twenty more movies in.  If you stay up for 24 ours just watching movies you can usually get about 16 of them in.   Wink


Tonight's movie ... in the Mouth of Madness


An insurance investigator takes a job with a publishing company looking for their top author, who has disappeared.  The investigation takes them to a town right out of the author's works, a town that shoulodn't exist.  It seems that what the author has been writing is starting to come true, and the author writes deeply disturbing horror tales.

In the Mouth of Madness is pretty much perfect in every way.  It manages to capture the feel of oppressive unexplainable horror in a way that no other movie has.  Despite not actually being a Lovecraft movie, movie ever made.

Van Helsing



Van Helsing, an amnesiac that serves as a monster hunter for a secret religious order is sent to Transylvania to stop Dracula.  Along with a gypsy princess and a friar that serves as his tech man, they have to stop Dracula and his brides from reviving their thousands of still born vampire children.  Of course to do this, Dracula needs the Frankenstein's monster and the wolfman.

The movie suffers a bit from having too much going on and trying to explain all of it at times.  It's also a bit too glossy CG when more practical effects would have given it more of the feel it was going for.  Still, the movie tends to be a lot of fun and a nice tribute to the monster movies of old.  Especially the black and white opening.

Nice choice.  I'm interested in seeing what movies you've picked out for your marathon. 



Tonight, my movie was ...

Killer Clowns from Outer Space. 



The movie is about ... killer clowns from outer space.  I mean, seriously.  With that kind of title, what did you expect it to be about?  Creepy clown looking aliens come down and start killing people and wrapping them up in cotton candy so they can drink their blood later. 

The movie itself is far more humor than horror, although it manages to be incredibly creepy in scenes.  The parade through town is an especially great moment.  The shadow puppet scene was also nicely done.  As far as evil clowns go, this is one of the best evil clown movies you're going to find.  Too many movies try to make them gross and horrorific.  This movie finds the nice balance of bright colorful and still deformed.     

It also has my favorite disbelieving cop of any horror movie.
