Pre-70's Flicks you enjoy
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:37:48 AM »
Most horror fans I know can't get enough of 70's and 80's horror (which decade is overall better, is, of course, disputed), but aside from a few select films (Psycho, Night of the Living Dead, the Hammer flicks), I don't see all that much talk about that many horror flicks pre-1970.

I'll just use my list of horror films I've seen, and post below a bunch of movies I think might be worth checking out. If anyone's seen any of them, and disagree (or agree), feel free to comment.

Not every movie above is amazing, but I did enjoy each one to varying degrees.

I have a deep love of many of these older flicks, and if anyone wants any recommendations, maybe we can all help each other out.

I'm a bigger fan of 70's/80's/90's cinema. Psycho is okay and I used to watch the Blob movies a little but that's about as far as I go into enjoying older movies like these.

70's and 80's horror flicks are, for the most part, amazing. I always slightly preferred the 1970's, but both are very strong decades of horror.

90's, while there are some more modern day classics within, not so much.

I get it, though - it's not the easiest thing to get into older movies. Personally, there's tons of silent horror movies I love, but I rarely expect other horror fans to willingly jump into them.

Psycho is a great movie, but there are plenty of other classics to if you look. That said, I certainly understand the preference of 70's through 90's horror flicks.
