I used to love those old Peter Cushing vampire movies when I was a kid. Scared the crap out of me, along with the Frankenstein/Mummy movies. Anyone know if there is a collection of these available on DVD?
Look on my Bad news for wide screen DVD thread, you'll find a few of them, and I can't wait to get my hands on them also. Some of them scared the bejesus out of me, but I grew to love them. In Vhs see "The Hunger" with Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie also a different type of vampire "One Dark Night" see it alone without anyone to poke you in the ribs, in the 'dark' of course, the darker the better. One Dark night was Meg Tillys debut. she was in the movie "The Big Chill" also.
Just don't get me started this is one of my major genres, there's "Wolf" with Jack Nickelson and Michelle Pfiefer with orange eyes (ooh Michelle).
Anchor Bay has many of the Hammer movies on dvd. Kiss of the Vampire is available from Universal I believe as well as Horror of Dracula from Warner. You can find others available if you have a region free player.
When revisiting some of the Hammer classics you realize how underrated actors like Cushing and Lee have been in the past...I'm reminded of this even more so when I watch recent films like The Lord of the Rings.
