Despite all the blood and guts that are released nowadays, the best horror movies are the old school classics. If you're staying in tonight, might we suggest the following? $3 each at iTunes.
The Bride of Frankenstein
You've most likely seen the images of this iconic film (actually a sequel to Frankenstein), but likely never sat through the 75-minute story of the monster and the mad scientist who makes him a mate.
Hitchcock's iconic movie is known as the father of the modern horror thriller. The stylish film (note the cool title sequence) with the screeching soundtrack has a lot more to offer than just the shower scene.
When this devilish film starring Mia Farrow opened, Roger Ebert's review began, "It's a creepy film and a crawly film, and a film filled with things that go bump in the night. It's very good." Enough said.
Kubrik's serene visuals and ominous music set the pace for Jack Nicholson's heart-racing portrayal of a mountain lodge caretaker gone mad. The floating, eerie shots makes the film as beautiful as it is frightening.
The Corpse Bride
Not exactly vintage, but this instant classic features slick stop-mation action, with voices provided by Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter, in the signature quirky and macabre Tim Burton style.
