    Geoff T's Hoop-Tober 8.0 Challenge
    Dracula (1958)

    It took me a while, but I finally got on board with Hammer Films last year, and I'm likely to keep it that way going forward. Here, we have one of their most well-known contributions to the horror genre, in the form of their 1958 adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, directed by Terence Fisher.

    Jonathon Harker shows up at the castle of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee), apparently as his new librarian. However, Harker…

    Castle/Price Double Bill #2
    The Tingler (1959)

    When it came to horror movies and theater gimmicks, no one seemed to master the art of it better than Will Castle. He brought about one of his more insane creations with The Tinger, a chiller built around the gimmick of "Percepto!", in which a built-in seat buzzer to provoke an intense reaction from the audience.

    After Castle himself issues a warning to the audience, we're thrown into…

    Castle/Price Double Bill #1
    House on Haunted Hill (1959)

    Vincent Price has sort of become a Hoop-Tober mainstay for me at this point, and this seemed like a fitting choice to settle on this year. A campy supernatural shocker directed by legendary B-movie showman William Castle, this of course my first experience with his work.

    Millionaire Frederick Loren (Price) has come up with a somewhat excitable but devilish idea. He wants to invite give strangers…

    Jack Arnold Double Bill #2
    Monster on the Campus (1958)

    Another Jack Arnold thriller that basically plays out like an update on Universal's prior The Wolf Man.

    Donald Blake is a university professor who studies evolution. He receives an ancient coelacanth fish, and upon accidentally cutting his hand on the teeth of the fish and sticking it in water that contains its blood, a deadly change begins to emerge. Sooner or later, Blake emerges as…

    NOTE: This review has been edited and revised excessively over time to fit my changing style.

    Yeah, I'll always have a soft spot for this one. The Thing stands as one of my all-time favourite sci-fi/horror films. Hell, I'd even consider it the best thing that John Carpenter ever did. This was my first ever exposure to the director's work, as well as Kurt Russell, and since then I've always been a massive fan of both of them.

    Based on…

    I've literally seen YouTube Poops with better production values than this.

    Absolutely fucking painful. So bad that I refuse to even give it a proper write-up.
