Lucian,

Thanks for posting some great posters.One in particular brought back some some memories. In 1947 one of our theaters brought back Dracula and Frankenstein in a double bill. I had not seen either at the time so this was a real bargain. Thirty five cents admission if memory serves me.To this day Im still a big fan of classic horror!

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
