What a great flick and one of the better Frankenstein films. My introduction to it was at about age five through one of my grandmother’s severely abbreviated Castle Films silent 8mm editions (she also had “Frankenstein Vs. the Wolfman” and “Creature From the Black Lagoon.” ) We made her run it at sooo many times.

Peter Cushing just finished being TCM's 'Star of the Month'. Every Monday they ran 5-6 of his movies, each night a different decade. Ended Monday though.

Nonsense, Nebuly! Xenophobia and bigotry are making quite the comeback!

Cushing is a class act.  His biography is really good.  Really kind man, yet most neighbors didn't let kids go nearby his house.  His performance in Tales From the Crypt is incredibly moving.

Hammer was just great, and Cushings along with Lee were beyond stellar.  Best Dracula and best Van Helsing, and a great take on Frankenstein!

His Wikipedia page is a great read if you’re in the mood (i.e., drunk) to simultaneous admire his commitment to acting and cry.

I think you mean the non-Dracula film The Devil Rides Out, which was a 1968 Hammer production that did indeed start Lee as the good guy (and Charles Gray as the baddie), and features the only horror film appearance by Prime Minister Jim Hacker himself, Paul Eddington.

A lot of it (according to my Dad who saw them when they first came out) was they were in color and had blood. For the late 50's that was mind blowing. Read more

These movies are just fun. They aren’t as good and atmospheric as the first Universal monster movies but they are entertaining. Lee and Cushing are fantastic and seeing Christopher Lee as Saruman, we get an idea of what he could do with a first rate production. It’s a shame that Cushing didn’t get the same Read more

Peter Cushing is one of my favorite film actors (the dude was just always reliable and classy, even in absolute disasters). I think some of the later Frankensteins give him more of a chance to add shade and nuance to Frankenstein (heck, in Frankenstein Created Woman he shows actual sympathy to the “monster”) but Curse Read more

The first Hammer Horror I ever watched was Dracula Rides Out, with Christopher Lee in rare mode as the good guy. It was ok. Then when I finally checked out their earlier stuff I was disappointed to see he had basically no lines. Karloff in The Mummy got to talk, it was practically a Dracula remake (not that Lee’s Read more

They needed characters to leave the sorority to at the end so that it continued to exist on camps.

Lita as Firebrand (All-Star Squadron). I’d be so down.

once her ‘settling in’ arc is over, she doesn’t really bring anything unique and is basically just a back-up-Sara. Read more

Since Gary is John’s apprentice, and John wasn’t around, I don’t expect Gary to be either. Boring, but true.
