    2018 A History of Horror

    Week 50 Bollywood
    Progress - 45/52

    I just watched The Eye in September for Hooptober so this was good timing to watch this Indian remake while the story was fresh in my mind. That was especially true because even though I don't speak the language, I didn't even have to pay much attention. You see, this is practically a shot-for-shot remake of the original. So if that was their goal, they definitely succeeded. Unfortunately, I…

    Dan’s Hoop-Tober Catch Up

    Progress: 75/107

    This is the first iteration of Christopher Lee as Dracula and you can quickly see why he was continually asked to reprise the role, as he carries class and arrogance so well, balancing the two to perfection. Unfortunately, I don't think he's given nearly enough screen time in this one. For a film entitled "Dracula" you'd think the character might be present a bit more. Luckily Peter Cushing is here as Van Helsing, a…
