horror flicks or just from one time period? Come on. I bet each and every one of you have watched a horror flick at least once. Perhaps Alien or Elm Street. Those are kids play. My daughter and I watch this show on Saturday nights called Svengoolie. It is hosted by this weird host who thinks he's funny and is dressed up like Dracula. The film shown is always a horror of the 40's and 50s time period. A lot of Vincent Price, Bela Lugosi, and Lon Chaney, Jr. Last week it was "The Ghost of Frankenstein". We are just into the oldies but goodies horror flicks. I like the horror and the ghostie ones from that period. Sure the affects are cave man and they are in black and white but, who does Dracula better than Bela Lugosi? Who does Frankenstein better than Lon Chaney Jr. ? And who plays the crazy guy better than Vincent Price?

I remember watching Svengoolie in college. Svengoolie.is such a great character to host those shows. Gotta love the oldies.

Yes, indeed. I like the trivia he tells us about half way through.

Svengoolie has been doing his thing for something like 40 years.

I prefer old horror movies but watch news ones as well. I watch Svengoolie also. He is so corny as to be funny.

@celticeagle Some of the old horror movie reviews I have posted here came from watching Svengoolie.

Haven't heard of this show until now. I'm going to look it up on imdb.com to know more about it and then check on-line if it is available for download. Thanks for the recommendation.

When I was younger I used to watch them all the time, but these days I don't watch them as much. The last one I saw was 13 Ghosts and that totally freaked me out. lol

WHen my mom was married to my step dad my step brother and I would watch this one channel that just had horror movies on it. Grade b ones. Ugh! I remember "The Hand" and some really pretty goofy ones. This was back in the 60's.
