And it has. It's now just about impossible to convince those who weren't there in 1957 what a phenomenal impact this movie had. It's no exaggeration to say that it was "The Exorcist" of its day; it wasn't as popular as the later movie, but was still a hit the world over. It changed the way horror movies were made, established London's Hammer Films as a major source of horror, and turned Peter Cushing into one of the handful of true horror stars the world has ever known.

title: Horror of Dracula function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Warners Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Michael Gough, Melissa Stribling, Carol Marsh, Olga Dickie, John Van Eyssen, Valerie Gaunt release year: 1958 film rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Not only is "Horror of Dracula" Hammer's best Dracula film, it's the best horror movie of the 1950s, and one of the best horror movies ever made by anyone, anywhere. Brisk, intelligent and handsomely produced, it's still effective today; this new DVD by Warners preserves the film in a superb print and 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Make no mistake: this isn't just another horror movie, it's something special.

title: Near Dark function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();<br> studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein, Tim Thomerson release year: 1987 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Even though relatively few people saw “Near Dark” on its initial 1987 theatrical release, it’s easy to tell that it’s been viewed by at least most of the folks in the horror filmmaking community, because parts of it have been widely imitated – albeit not improved on – ever since.

title: Friday The 13th; Part VII function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Lar Park-Lincoln, Kane Hodder, Kevin Spirtas, Terry Kiser, Susan Blu, Jeff Bennett release year: 1988 film rating: One Star sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea It seemed fitting, on September 13th (which was, of course, a Friday) to sit down with a bowl of popcorn and settle in for the cheese-fest of a Friteenth movie. After all, these were the slasher flicks that defined a generation, and gave birth to post-modern slasher flicks like "Scream."

Due to “Halloween’s” popularity, Carpenter was offered a two-picture deal. He and Debra Hill, his partner and co-author, chose to do “The Fog.”
