Some great chioces, but what about “The Horror of Dracula?”
Please give me full plot synopsis on my favorite vampire film Track of the Vampire aka Blood Bath. Thank you.-David
Here is something from IMBD.
I love Track of The Vampire as well. Very unique film.
While I’m not a huge vampire phile, this film is pretty atmospheric and original.
I hope you like the link, thanks for stopping by
I’ve always been a bit hesitant about compiling my own top 50 or top 100 as I’m always changing my opinions depending on my mood.
Mind you, I’m now tempted to give it a go… :-)
It’s a hard undertaking. Sometimes your opinion even changes about certain films after several viewings or revisitations. I just felt like the site warranted my overview of the films that truly left a lasting impression on me. But I agree, it’s often an everchanging event! So go for it! And let me know when you’ve written in cyber stone.
thanks for stopping by
Thanks for the encouragement! I am definately going to compile some kind of personal top 50 for the Cyberschizoid blog. You really have inspired me. I don’t think it will be a Top 50 Greatest Horror Films but something more personal along those lines…
It’s so cool that you’re going to do it! All that matters is you express yourself~ people really do love to see other film lovers likes and dislikes. Scream at me when you’re done. Even if it’s not horror. I love film in general and vintage tele too!
have fun with it.
I did it!!! I completed my top 50+ movies!
Yay!!!!! I am so glad you put it together. It’s an impressive list and does show the interconnectedness yet the diverse leanings we both share. Bravo! And thanks for mentioning me in the post! joey
Cheers! There’s no way i would have posted my list without acknowledging my inspiration! Thanks for letting me steal your idea and I know what you mean about the similarities in likes!
