It’s October 1st! So that means, it’s another year of Blogtober! I missed last year, so I am very excited to get back to it this year.
This year, I’ve decided to make my way through a collection of 100 movies of the Legends of Horror/Greatest Horror Classics.
Tonight’s selection is:
This is a 1939 film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Starring Charles Laughton, Robert Newton, Maureen O’Hara
Adapted from a Daphne Du Maurier story, the film takes place at a small inn on the coast of Cornwall. The inn is the base of operations of a band of criminals who deliberately shipwreck vessels for their cargo. The arrival of one of the gang member’s niece and also a Lloyd’s of London investigator disrupt the gang’s plans.
No blood or guts in this one, but it’s still pretty good. Being a film from the 30’s, it is definitely from a different era, so many may be disinterested in it and not call it a horror classic. But I say to give it a chance. Plus it’s a Hitchcock!!
It looks like they did a remake of this film in 2015. I’ll have to check it out.
