70s HORROR MOVIES


70s HORROR MOVIES - When it comes to horror, I’m a sucker for an original concept, and in that regard the 70s horror flicks deliver. This is the decade that broke from rubber headed B movie monsters, and ushered in an age of exploration, influencing the genre for decades to come. The 70s celebrate all horror subgenres: supernatural, paranormal, demonic, slasher, nature, psychological, scifi horror, hillbilly, zombie, vampire, big moments and small, just to name a few. Regular visitors to my blog will probably recognize several of these but it’s important to remember these are the original versions and remakes of these titles came much later. Coming soon: Horror of the Aughts.
