happy halloween

This Halloween we've been watching black and white horror movies. I'm just in love with the sets from the 1930's. One of the iconic classics, Dracula from 1931 has some great Hollywood sets. Happy Halloween!









P.S. All those dealing with Sandy, I sincerely hope you are well.

Hello Ann, These classic horror films are always the best; to a large degree they rely on psychological involvement rather than simple shock value.

In the photos you posted, I noticed how scale plays a role. The boudoir scenes are so intimate and feminine compared to the castle, that Dracula's mere presence creates a sense of violation, even before he gets down to the fang-work.

movies from this time period have the BEST SETS! I can watch them all day long. The writing is also usually so witty and clever -much better than current movies. I haven't seen Dracula, i'll have to check it out!
