31 Days of Halloween: Day #12 … 6 Binge-Worthy Horror B-Movies

Welcome back to my 31 Days of Halloween series.  Today is Day #12, and I’m listing 6 binge-worthy B-Movies.


Classic B-Horror Movies

I watch classic B-Horror movies just about every weekend.  From Vincent Price and Hitchcock to the Hammer House Films. These movies show a shift in our culture, and the very beginnings of what was considered scary during this time.

You have to think that these are the themes that scared people.  From outer space monsters to creatures and demons, it was everything that foreign or unknown.  We look at these classic films as the ridiculous side of horror, but they are also considered to be our early beginnings.

Your then younger film-makers like Wes Craven, John Carpenter, and George Romero used these films as a foundation to create the movies that we know and love today.
