When I was a teenager I had a little black and white portable TV in my room and I used to stay up late on weekends to lie in bed and watch midnight horror films. I kept a little book of reviews so that I didn't stay up late only to discover the film was a really bad one I had already seen and also because I wanted to see how many films in total I could get to.
I stopped watching new horror films when they became about how much gore you could show rather than the suspense and the incredible power of the viewers imagination. I'm sad that I don't still have my little book of reviews, but one film I definitely know I watched was The Bride Of Frankenstein. Those old films made you feel sorry for the poor Frankenstein's monster in pain and misunderstood. The bride was unforgettable with her white and black hair swept up into a big cone.
My bride has had a bit of a makeover in celebration of 2 new challenges. The Saturated Canary Challenge for themed projects featuring the stamps and digi artwork of the wonderful Krista, where the 1st challenge has a sketch and lots of photos for inspiration. And Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls, a challenge blog dedicated not just to the work of Tim Burton but other Burtonesque films, books and directors; kicking off with a favourite Halloween film, book or memory theme.
