* this can be deemed a sudden twist in the road.
My top five, all-time, black and white classic horror films are:
(Rated from least favorite (5) to all-time favorite (1):
5.) Bride of Dracula
4.) The Blob
3.) Creature From The Black Lagoon
2.) Dr Frankenstein
1.) The Mummy
What a great question! I don't have five, as I'm not a big horror film fan, but I do love The Wolf Man (1941) with Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Claude Rains. I really like your number four pick, too, The Blob.
@ The Dirt Farmer,
Hey, I liked Lon Chaney in Wolf Man too. I just had a dilemma choosing between him and the mummy. Oh, and a young Steve McQueen and his girlfriend did a great job in The Blob and do you remember Officer Jim in this film? He was a class act.
Yes, Officer Jim. And Miss Crump! Okay, now I have to watch The Blob again.
Great Question. Creature from the Black Lagoon is definitely a favorite. Also The Birds, The Fly, The Thing and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The Fly with Vincent Price is one of the greatest "real" horror films of all-time. Have you ever watched any of his "Dr. Phybes" films? They are so suspenseful that you will actually be sitting on the edge of your seat.
@ susiecat7, although it is not your accepted classic horror film, "The 40-Foot Woman" breaks the mold of a "B" movie for it does have drama, love, adultery (but not porno) and plenty of suspense.

After The Artist, do you think we will see another Black and White silent film released?After the release of The Artist, and the no doubt success it will recieve in the form of awards etc. Do you think anybody else will release a silent, Black and White film? Or is it just a one off?

What's your favorite Black and White movie?

I love to watch old black and white movies because these have wonderful acting and storylines. Yes, black and white movies may not have all of the special effects of today's films, but actually this is why I love them so. There were some very good actors back in the day, and I enjoy...
