I love spooky movies. Not the splatter kind of movies that are so prevalent today, but the 'Hitchcock' style, loaded with atmosphere and impending peril:movies like Rebecca, a Hitchcock spine-tingler, replete with an imposing, mysterious estate. It's the kind of movie you can see before going to bed at night. There's no way I could sleep a wink if I watched any of the Saw horror movies.
Wait Until Dark is another movie that grabs you with creeping terror. The menacing presence of Alan Arkin stalking a blind Audrey Hepburn is enough to make one's skin crawl.
There isn't much about the movies these days that even comes close to the movies of years ago. Granted, today's movies are exciting with all the amazing special effects.
I'm in awe of the creative technology involved. Independence Day is thrilling to watch, and the Bourne movies, too. I'll go to the movies any day of the week to see Matt Damon or Leonardo DiCaprio.
I'll always have fond memories of the Golden Era. It was a grand time of gorgeously handsome leading men and women, actors and actreses not easily forgotten.
