The Phantom Of The Opera (1962) Review


Good
It's Phantom time again in this '60s adaptation, a straightforward version with Herbert Lom (who?) as the masked man. Notably, the phantom's costume is at it's simplest here: a getup that looks an awful lot like the guy put a bag over his head. The story's pretty straightforward and unsurprising, though the music is good and the performances are all perfectly acceptable. Not what you might expect from Hammer Films.

The Brides Of Dracula Review


Good
As "Baron Meinster," David Peel isn't quite Dracula, and these gals aren't really brides either. But Peter Cushing's Van Helsing anchors this campy reimagination of the Dracula story, which has Meinster preying on a girls' school to fill out his pseudo-harem.

The Evil Of Frankenstein Review


OK
Hammer Films' third Frankenstein movie is really just more of the same: The broke baron is back to digging up bodies and attempting to animate them (this time with the help of a hypnotist called, ahem, Professor Zoltan). Disastrous results ensue. Won't this mad scientist ever wisen up? Unfortunately, the monster makeup is a little south of corny, which doesn't do much to elevate this film beyond a pedestrian monster flick.

The Curse Of The Werewolf Review


Weak
You know your monster movie's in trouble when the villain isn't even born until the 30 minute mark. This minor horror flick is notable for Oliver Reed's appearance as the title creature, but the adaptation of The Werewolf of Paris (which moves the action to Spain) never amounts to much, because little ever happens in the story. Our antihero starts hunting goats during full moons when he's just a kid. Later he moves on to the residents of his village. Naturally this leads to a lynch mob, but even that doesn't raise the temperature more than a few degrees.
