I don't think its as bad as the remakes of THE HAUNTING or HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL,it IS superior to the '76 version,but still remaking KONG is kind of somenthing that warrants an ass-forking for ANYBODY.

I liked the Fay Wray/Claude Raines movie "The Evil Mind".

Yeah, The Clairvoyant, that's a good one too. We put this out with Most Dangerous Game on a double feature as both films are public domain.

Glad I checked this blog today or I would have totally missed that these films were even on tonight! Thanks!

Did anyone catch Doctor X? I was surprised to realize this was another old classic I had never seen before (I have seen Return of Doctor X starring Bogart though.) But Doctor X really caught me off guard, it's not perfect by any means but the Technicolor two-strip photography was really effective and created a great eerie mood, and of course Fay Wray looked gorgeous as always. A spooky little treat worth watching again!

I have Doctor X on dvd as part of the Hollywood Legends of Horror Collection. This is a very good collection that I highly recommend. Dr. X is good and Fay looks as great as ever. It has 6 movies:Mark of the Vampire, The Mask of Fu Manchu, Doctor X, The Return of Doctor X, Mad Love and The Devil Doll. Mad Love is one of my all time favorites.

This is a good set but I don't understand why they paired Mad Love with Devil Doll though, a much wiser choice would have been Mad Love & Beast with 5 Fingers.
