If you have NYC-area readers, they can do what I'm doing and see THE OLD DARK HOUSE on a big screen at the Quad Cinema on Halloween.

I wrote to you about House - it is so wonderfully surreal, I can't wait to watch it again. Glad you included it!

I love those 30's horror classics like various Frankenstein and Dracula flicks...partly because the black and white filming looks so splendid. Some little known terrifying movies I know of are:

Robert Altman's Images. Don't know why that one is so obscure

And: The Reflecting Skin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvmHOGhHBQM

Those two actually rattle me, which is almost impossible.

And really have enjoyed An American Werefold in London, and The Howling.

Both had AWFUL sequels.
