Horror, unmitigated
28 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 7 when I saw it. I am now three days into 86 and I can still internalize -- vividly -- all of the scary parts, scene by scene and shot by shot. And after seeing it, I wouldn't go to bed with the lights off for months. Also, for many years I was not allowed to see, among others, "The Invisible Man," "Frankentein," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," and "Dracula."

I didn't mind.

But I do mind that the film is lost and has been for years. I've been trying to find it so I could see it and exorcize it.

Plus one other thing: They didn't do Parent Guides in 1930, but wouldn't you think it might not be such a great idea to send your seven-year-old to see a movie called "The Cat Creeps"?
