Best Horror Films from 1950-1980, per Stephen King's "Danse Macabre"

Only one title is missing from the Letterboxd Db: "Quatermass 2: The Enemy from Space."

Many of the ones missing prior were due to alternate title confusion.

I hope to watch many more of these this year during my 61 Days of Halloween here: /www.themovierat.com/
