The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

House of Dark Shadows (1970)

House of Dark Shadows

Director: Dan Curtis
Starring: Jonathan Frid, Katherine Leigh Scott

A vampire finds the reincarnation of his long lost love and with the help of a doctor tries to become human once again.

My Take:
I can see how this movie (and the TV series) was a huge hit in the late 60's. It seems to have a perfect amount of soap opera drama, horror, and mystery. However, watching it today, it all feels out dated. And the music score really bothered me too. I will look forward to the Tim Burton remake.

Rating: In the Middle
