    There's a lot to choose from... Bride Of Frankenstein, Black Sunday and The Invisible Man come to mind. But mine would be the mexican movie THE BLACK PIT OF DR. M .

    It's not a well known movie, but it deserve to be discovered! Casa Negra released it last year and I had the chance to discover it on DVD. It's a mix between mad scientist and a ghost story. You don't get more atmospheric than that!!!

    Sure there's a virtual plethora of diverse cinema to choose from, but I'm going to have to agree with my avatar and go with Nosferatu.

    I'm going with a the german Der Golem. It's good to see where the inspiration for Frankenstein came from that mixes with what Mary Shelley gave us.

    I'm going to say The Thing From Another World because the first time I saw it was on tv with my dad when I was around 10 years old. He said he remembered seeing this as a kid and liked it as well as the idea of something like that actually happening. Years later, I'd show him Carpenter's The Thing on DVD and he was surprised at how gross it was but how it stuck with the originals theme.

    I gotta go with herk harvey's low budget chiller Carnival of Souls. Holds up well 45 years later, was done on a major no-budget purse and was genius for its time, and above all was real scary and clever.

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

    The film that defined a century of works.

    I don't usually agree with Dwatts, but I am now. I adore Fiend Without a Face. I loved it as a child and still love it to this day. I bought it immediately when it came out on DVD. It doesn't hold up real well in terms of effects, but it is an original concept and still a heck of a lot of fun to watch. I also love Creature from the Black Lagoon, so I'm with you guys on the board. I'm also a fan of the ultra cheesy From Hell it Came, despite the crappy walking tree creature. I guess the ones that you loved as a kid stay with you!

    Since Noto already mentioned my beloved Cat People, I'm going to say its bizarre sequel, Curse of the Cat People. Ollie and Alice Reed didn't learn a single thing from the first film and turn their mental abuse to their daughter. An incredibly atmospheric film, and one I always want to watch once I finish the first.

    Worth noting that the only cat we see is in the first minute or so, in a tree.

  13. Nosferatu (1922) because after all these years Count Orlok still creeps the hell out me, and Max Scheck will always be the number one vampire.

    James Whale's Frankenstein

    I almost wanted to say Doctor X for the hell of it, but then I realized it was in two-strip technicolor. LOL.

    I'm still waiting on the DVDs, but once they arrive I'll ship all three to you fine folks the package after I get your mailing address.

    Thanks to everyone that entered - I am really enjoying these little contests, the more people from the site we get involved the better, so look for another one soon!

    Holy something-something!:eek1:
    Until the last few months I've never won anything from random drawings, now 2 this summer (won "Mad" from dvdcompare, although I haven't got it yet. It does say wait 6-8 weeks on my 6/19 email)!

    This calls for bananas, dance bitches!:D
    :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

    For the record, I'm not a "closet James Wan fan". I've liked both of his offerings and look forward to more. I only hope the t-shirt is as cool as that Hitcher shirt I won in that contest.:)

    Thanks to God, my daddy's baby momma, my momma's baby daddy, Stacy, rhett and RANDOM.ORG. Extra thanks to horrordvds, the coolest site on the web (not kissing ass, I was saying that long before I ever won any contest). Couldn't have done it without ya'll.
