Hammer horror are truely great, I agree your comment about Evil of Frankenstein. Frankenstein Created Woman is such a different feel to
the film. Dracula Prince of Darkness is great, so begin the serial
cliffhangers of those films, I can remember the tv trailer for D has Risen from the Grave in 69, channel 0 was showing rerun of the Munsters.
Scars of Dracula I like, not because it has Patrick troughton or Dennis waterman in, it just good Hammer film. same as the taste the blood of dracula, about Victorian values.
I have been watching the Universal Horror films- so far I seen Dracula, the Mummy and the spanish ver.of dracula.
Having watch Risen I'm going 'How the Hell does Drac come back from that?!"
I love that they have, so far, killed him in a different way each time. Though for sheer brutality Horror of Dracula stands out.
I love the Universal films. I've got the Legacy Collections of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Creature is still my fav, but I have to say, apart from the second film which is a waste and misses the point, I loved the ongoing Wolfman storyline. If you watch those films, and all the group films that feature the character, there's actually a full story being told over several films.

Total agreement here. I must to admit I'm big fan of the
Wolfman, I'm interested with the new version with Higo Weaving.
