Frankenstein (1931)

Of the fourteen films contained in Universal's three Monster Legacy Collection box sets, the Frankenstein box contains the best one: Bride of Frankenstein (1935). After the success of the original 1931 film, director James Whale convinced the studio to let him make the sequel his way, with a sophisticated yet smarmy sense of humor. The film benefits not only from the presence of Boris Karloff as the monster and Elsa Lanchester as the bride, but also from Colin Clive as the mad doctor and Una O'Connor as the town busybody, who always comes up with a delightful look of shock whenever she's offended. This film seems absolutely ageless and is just as capable of winning new audiences today as it was back then. read more...

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)

Rouben Mamoulian's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931) may be the finest of all the screen adaptations of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel. In the lead role, Fredric March's transformation from Jekyll to Hyde is still startling and, frankly, terrifying. The superb makeup was certainly part of it, but March's skill was the finishing touch. He won an Oscar for his work, and is one of only a handful of folks to win for a horror movie. The sensual Miriam Hopkins is also excellent as the bar singer who flirts with Jekyll and becomes an object of obsession for Hyde. Most of this raw, bodily stuff would not have been allowed just a few years later, after the introduction of the Hays Code. read more...

Dracula (1931)

I believe that Dracula (1931), directed by Tod Browning, may be the most famous movie in the world. There are more successful movies, like Gone With the Wind (1939), E.T. (1982), and Titanic (1997). And there are more popular movies, like internet poll winners The Shawshank Redemption (1994), The Usual Suspects (1995), and Braveheart (1995). And although Charlie Chaplin may be the world's most famous performer, I believe that a good deal of the population who can recognize Charlie by sight cannot name even one of his films. The Frankenstein movies are famous as well, but I suspect that their popularity is split between the original Frankenstein (1931) and the superior Bride of Frankenstein (1935). read more...

Manhunter (1986)

Not many folks know it, but Michael Mann's Manhunter is actually the first Hannibal Lecter film. It was based on Thomas Harris' first novel in the Hannibal Lecter series, Red Dragon, the title of which was changed to avoid sounding like a martial arts film. Brian Cox plays Hannibal -- spelled "Lecktor" in this movie -- who only has an incidental role. William L. Petersen plays Will Graham, a super-sleuth who catches serial killers by trying to understand their thought patterns. The tall, creepy-calm Tom Noonan (What Happened Was...) plays the scary killer, and multiple-Oscar nominee Joan Allen plays a blind woman, the object of the killer's affections. read more...

The Visit (2015)

After several perplexing misfires, writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has scaled back, gone for a lower budget and a lighter tone, and has emerged with his most effective movie in over a decade. The Visit begins interestingly; the potentially creepy moments are easily explained away, and even laughed off, but the director still manages to create a subtle, creeping dread that steadily builds toward the climax. read more...
