A fine collection of tales from the crypt. I might add some James Whale: THE OLD DARK HOUSE, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, or some Browning: FREAKS or DRACULA, or maybe DRACULA'S DAUGHTER by Whoever. maybe Bava's BLACK SUNDAY, maybe THE CHANGELING, maybe Vadim's BLOOD AND ROSES with Claude Renoir behind the camera, maybe the Kaufman INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, maybe some Lewton like THE BODY SNATCHER or I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, maybe the Siodmak SON OF DRACULA, and certainly Edgar Ulmer's BLACK CAT. Maybe Bette Davis and Lillian Gish being embalmed before our eyes in the atrocious WHALES OF AUGUST.

Maybe some tasty TV candy, like WHITECHAPEL or PENNY DREADFUL or THE SIGNAL-MAN.

Or maybe not. Who knows?

@David: Well I Walked With a Zombie was real close to making the list. Thanks for the tip on the Vadim, have not seen it but love him so I will be sure to see it before next Halloween!

I was going to post that but still not sure that it is considered horror. It is one of my favorite films of all time. Just one where everything worked.
