"Just looked at the pictures of the restored theatre and it is absolutely sumptuous. For anyone who has not read this article of a Picture Palace from the Golden Age gloriously resurrected, be sure to have a look. What a magnificent achievement!"
Universal ruled the horror genre in the 30's and 40's. Then it was Hammer Films turn from the 50's to the 70's. Horror, sex, and gallons of blood. Amicus Studios, and other British studios will be included in the messy mix.See More

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I collect all kinds of stuff. Movies, tv shows, radio shows, comics, pulps, and stuff related to owls.
My name is Tiffany Brannan. I don't think I have ever seen you online while I have been here. It is nice to meet you!
By the way, I would like to invite you to join my blogathon, "The Great Breening Blogathon:" https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/extra-the-great-breening-blogathon/. It is celebrating the life and work of Joseph Breen, the enforcer of the Motion Picture Production Code between 1934 and 1954. As we honor his birthday, which is on October 14, we will be discussing and analyzing the Code era, breening films from other eras, and writing about our own ideas for classic movies. One doesn't have to agree with the Code and Mr. Breen to enjoy that! I hope you will do me the honor of joining. We could really use your talent!

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 […]
