In SILVER SCREEN CLASSICS blogathon, participants are asked:

“In 150 – 200 words, what was the first classic horror film that you can remember seeing?”

“It could be that first horror film that left a lasting impression, rather than the very first one you remember seeing. The good news is that there are no limitations to write about as there are so many to choose from. Keeping a short word limit should hopefully make it an easier task as well.”

With MY journey in classic films starting 60 years ago, I can barely remember my first time for ANYthing. What I can say is that in my recent sojourns with horror movies, my sympathy has come to lie with The Monster. Lord knows in these troubling times, I wouldn’t give a hill of beans or a plug nickel for human beings.
