4 Vintage Horror Movies You Just Wouldn’t See Today

Vintage movie poster: Freaks

Or perhaps this should be horror movies that they just wouldn’t make today, either because they’re totally inappropriate, incredibly corny or downright bizarre. I especially like the movie which was shot in ‘shocking sexicolor’ – that sounds more exciting than technicolor any day!

    Freaks was directed by Tod Browning who was also the director of the 1931 Dracula starring Bela Lugosi … He also directed Lon Chaney 10 times, with some brilliant results … White Zombie is another classic starring Bela Lugosi and became the foundation for Zombie movies that are still being made … When you compare them to horror movies made today, such as Saw IV they will come across much more subliminal and artistic … Sorry (or not …) I haven’t seen the other 2 films, but I bet they’re in some horror movie fans collections …

      I must admit I would much rather watch a ‘classic’ horror movie than a modern one – give me Bela Lugosi rather than guts and gore ANYDAY! Sadly I haven’t watched any of these movies, but if I come across them I’ll certainly give them a try! :)
