Sometimes I like watching older 50's, 60's, 70's 'B' horror movies.
I like seeing what scared people back then. You can learn a lot about society by watching older movies, examining the cars driven, how people dressed, how most spoke.
The back ground scenes are the most interesting, checking out older clothing styles, hair styles, food brands, eateries.
Older movies give you a glimpse into all of this, like rolling archiological tapes.
They allow you a glimpse into the past.
And these older movies can often be soothing in that you realize a lot of times societal fears are just that, irrational fears, until the next era of irrational fears comes along.
These older films also prove that life just keeps moving along, regardless, every generation things they are 'it'...but not so, life just keeps moving along, people die, trends die, and new ones are born and created.
It would be nice if movies and cameras were around 4000 years ago, imagine getting live shots of Jesus, or Moses, or Mohammid, or the Greek Empire, or of the Egyptians while building the Pyramids.
Anyways, this movie 'Fright Night'...is a dud, at least by todays standards.
