    I didn't expect to be so bored by this one. Universal's monster films aren't for everyone but most of them that I've seen I've enjoyed enough. The Invisible Man remains my favorite by far, and this one comes nowhere close. Boris Karloff does his best but the rest of the cast is a bit of a bore. The dialogue is uninteresting and there isn't much in…

    This one definitely lives up to the hype! I certainly found a movie that I'm going to show to my kids when they're a bit older to try to keep them from sleeping around!

    A slow burn horror that doesn't rely on many jump scares to get you (although I'll admit that there were a couple times it actually did get me), instead relying on…
