Old horror films

I love old horror films like the 1930s Dracula and Frankenstein films, the Universal Horrors and the Hammer Horror films too. I don't like gore and too much violence. I love Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Peter Cushing and that kind of old style star. Has anyone got any good films like that you would recommend?

I haven't seen The Shining or Halloween, I think they are too frightening and too much is shown, whereas I prefer things to be suggested rather than overt. I like a good script and good acting, not just all effects. I just watched Pan's Labyrinth and enjoyed that, although some bits set in 1944 Spain are brutally violent.

Oh yes, I completely agree! I watched the 2010 version of The Wolfman at the cinema and it was all blood, guts and gore. I much prefer the old 1930s version of The Wolf Man which had worse special effects, but created the mood perfectly - the suspense, the build up of tension...
