Classic Horror From the 1950s

• What is your favorite horror film and why? Least favorite?

• What is the scariest movie you have ever seen and why?

• How do you think contemporary horror films compare to the classics? Is it even fair to compare them? Discuss.

• Who is your favorite film monster? (As you can tell from the picture you see here I have a soft spot for The Creature from the Black Lagoon).

• What combination of elements result in a truly scary film?

• What (if any) fright flick would you like to see remade and why?

That’s it. Let us know the answers to any and all of these questions in the comments. I’m sure your insights will be as illuminating as a full moon!
