I was waiting for this

Just to clarify I think Rosemary’s Baby is acclaimed and revered because of its themes. If you were a mother and a catholic the idea that you could give birth to the devil unintentionally(not to mention the rape theme that accompanies that) is a horrific thing. So you probably should give it another watch with that in mind.
It is the same way The Exorcist scared the shit out of Catholics. lol

But then again, in those years, drug, satan and cults were the shits.

Oh my god yes. There were moral panics concerning cults and satanism and child sacrifice and child/adult orgies and forcing children to get pregnant/give birth and incestuous satanic cults….it’s fucking nuts how people lose their fucking minds based on nothing but hearsay, rumors, and urban myths.

Plus, The Devil wins in the end.
Wow James, spectacular choices! Very hard to limit down, but I think your picks are great. As much as I enjoy a new review every day in October, I see your point about the videos taking up so much of your time to make. Maybe next year you can do just one video, but showcase several videos in a category like this one. Keep up the great work and Happy Halloween!

I think it’s pretty unfair to just narrow down only 5 choices for Hammer horror when they’re so much of their horror movies to choose from like The Devil Rides Out, Plague of the Zombies, and The Nanny that would’ve been nice for a top 10 or 15. Still, the 60s has too many horror movies to watch and I can understand you had to limit your list big time.

Great lists! I wasn’t sure what could top Psycho, but I think you probably made the right choice. Also, I was happy to see that there were some movies on these lists that I didn’t know about before, they sounded very interesting and I am going to check them out! Thanks James!

I really didn’t like The Last Man On Earth,I thought the monster things ruined it. But The Quiet Earth though… I loooved it.

It seems we can say the late 50’s through the early 70’s was Hammer time.
October 18, 2016 at 4:28 pm
Nice list. I’ll definitely be checking some of these out.
October 18, 2016 at 4:37 pm
Why are you pointing at Mother??
October 18, 2016 at 5:19 pm
I really hope James does the Tremors series one of these days. A thoroughly underrated group of films.
October 18, 2016 at 6:09 pm
They’re entertaining ‘horror’ comedies.

How is Black Sabbath on this list, but not Spider Baby?
October 19, 2016 at 5:57 am
I’m going to have to watch these… Thanks for the list!

I still use The Psycho music from shower scene as Skype calling sound 🙂 maybe creepy but very loud to not miss the call from somebody while im busy playing at the time.

So much good movies right there my god I don’t know what to choose ….. I like rose mary’s baby but it’s one time movie .. you see it once and that’S it like sixth sense…

The only point that I found deceiving with monster madness is James talk about movie He already review in other monster madness and why no video …to long for editing???

Great list! love the 60’s list so much; seen alot of them. I recall how spooked I was seeing “House of Usher” in high school. In literature class of all classes; there were no film classes in my high school at the time at least. I think my literature teacher just wanted to show films all the time 😛

Wow, a brazilian movie on the top ten! That was unexpected. The “Coffin Joe” is translated from “Zé do Caixão” here, and he’s still alive. 🙂
