Horror Movie Week! Let’s watch Brides of Dracula (1960)

Bride5

Campy, creepy, over-the-top Hammer horror films. Gotta love ’em.

The lush colors of the sets! The amazing costumes! The technicolor red blood! The impressive decolletages! The hard-to-place accents! The cheekbones of Peter Cushing!

Yvonne Monlaur is so fetching in this movie. She really was French, a model and a ballet dancer. You can see the ballet in her the way she moves. It’s like she’s a veela from Beaux-Batons.

We watched these movies as kids and they scared the pants off us.

Halloween is about scary movies. You can rent this one on YouTube for less money than a pumpkin spice latte. Here’s the trailer. Turn out the lights and enjoy!
