  1. So many things in this I can relate to. My love for classic film really started with horror and comedy. That’s why I loved ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948), because it effectively combined both. There was something about the Video Store Era that made discovering horror movies fun. You never really knew what you were going to get, when all you had to go on was the box art. Fun memories.

      Thanks for the reply Will! Abbott & Costello Meet Frank is a favorite of mine as well. That mixture is just great when done right. The Stepfather (1987) is another one that comes to mind. It really walked that suspense/thriller dark comedy line esp well. It took me a few years to see the comedic aspects in some of those films I saw way back when. You pick up on nuance better after youve seen alot and can analyze movies better I think.
