    Dracula Has Risen from the Grave


    For some reason this one was difficult for me to find but Amazon Prime just brought it on luckily - I'm getting closer to seeing all of the Hammer Dracula films now, just needing three more of the nine total. And I think this is my favorite at this point, although to be completely fair I should probably watch them all again closer together, and in the prescribed order.

    Week 39 Lovecraft
    Progress - 52/52

    Full disclosure - I'm really not a big fan of Lovecraft, the Cthulhu mythos, or anything related. It's just never done anything for me and going into these movies, books, or board games (yes there are a lot of them) I know I'm going to be a bit bias against them.

    That being said, this wasn't that bad. The negative parts are the really bad CGI that is bordering…
