  1. One of my all time favorite “horror” films. I have a color version but, it’s better in black and white. Vincent Price is stellar. Forget the remake!!

    • Some of these things benefit from color and some don’t. I think I agree with you on this one. It’s spookier in black and white. I think that Will Smith remake was kind of lame, but Omega Man wasn’t too bad.
