Ah yes... Cristopher Lee and Peter Cushing-- always deadly serious, Vincent Price-- camping it up and melodramatic... those were the days. Some great movies and a lot of stinkers, but always fun. Thanks for another return to yesteryear, steve.

Thanks for commenting David.

If I had included Hammer horror there would have been a lot more Cushing and Lee and the page would have been twice as long! Hammer has its own hub, Vincent Price is king here, 15 films!

Thanks for posting.

I have only seen 5 of these movies...with many ones that I have never even heard of before. It almost makes me think I need to investigate Vincent Price's career a little more. So were Karloff and Price friends off camera? Hard to imagine that they would not get along and still appear in so many movies together. Loved looking at the posters....another fine addition to your poster series. Voted up and interesting.

Thanks Bruce, appreciate the comment amigo.

Karloff and Price must have got on well and with Peter Lorre too. I'd love to have seen behind the scenes footage from The Raven. There's a feature length Roger Corman documentary out in the shops, I should pick it up.

Highest rated film here is Psycho, lowest rated is Ed Wood's Bride of the Monster.
