Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942) - I know, not horror. But I always like to include these in the Universal run - plus this one has Lionel Atwill as Moriarty!
I Married a Monster from Outer Space (1958)
Blood of Dracula (1957)
Night Monster (1942)
The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)
Whispering Shadows (1921)

"The Dark Tower"
-Idris Elba

Plot: IMDB
Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey), also known as the Man in Black. The Gunslinger must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at stake, two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.

Phantom's Review:
If your a Stephen King fan, a "Purist" of his work, then I highly recommend that you skip this film, save yourself the headache. If you have never read the books or your the type of fan who just accepts the fact that Hollywood will rarely ever do King right, then maybe you'll get some enjoyment out of this short (95 minutes) , somewhat standard  Hollywood film.  For me, the film was a disappointment. I enjoyed 'The Dark Tower' novels and was looking forward to seeing them on the big screen, but this is definitely not was I was hoping for. The filmmakers took bits and pieces from a massive 8 volume series, threw most of the books away and put together this hodge podge sci-fi western. Idris Elba does his best  as 'Roland, The Last Gunslinger' but he doesn't have a whole lot to work with. Mathew McConaughey fares slightly better as the villain 'Walter, The Man In Black' , but again there is just not a whole lot to work from. Overall, a huge disappointment.

Mike, I really enjoyed the novel. In places it's very similar to the film. However it diverges enough to stand on its own. I've read several film adoptions that just retell the same story and this one does more than that. I don't want to spoil any plot points so I'll leave it at that. If you're a Creature fan I'd recommend the novel.

Thanks, Rex! I've had the book lying around. I just need to buckle down and read it.

Burying the Ex
Fun film. I like all the background horror items (vintage posters, Halloween decorations, movies ) featured in the film. Great sense of humor throughout. Anyone thats ever had a girlfriend/wife who doesnt understand your obsession with horror, will love this film.
