Ten Movies on an Island: Horror/Ghost/Sci-fi

I am not a Horror movie fan. I'm not a Sci-Fi movie fan either. Which is why I had to make this a Horror/Ghost/Sci-fi list.
1. The Ghost Breakers (1940) - Bob Hope & Paulette Goddard
2. *Cat People (1942) - Simone Simon & Kent Smith
3. *The Univited (1944) - Ray Milland & Gail Russell, Ruth Hussey, Donald Crisp
4. The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945) - Hurd Hatfield, George Sanders, Donna Reed
5. Lured (1947) - Lucille Ball, George Sanders
6. The Time Machine (1960) - Rod Taylor, Alan Young
7. Psycho (1960) - Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh
8. Mysterious Island (1961) - Michael Craig, Joan Greenwood, Michael Callan
9. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) - Bette Davis & Joan Crawford
10. The Birds (1963) - Tippi Hedren & Rod Taylor, Suzanne Pleshette

Horror films I want to see: The Unseen (1945) - a sequel of sorts to The Univited starring Gail Russell & Joel McCrea (which I just found HERE!!!!); Val Lewton's The Leopard Man (1943), and The Innocents (1961) starring Deborah Kerr, though it looks a little too creepy for me. Also The Most Dangerous Game (1932), The Mummy (1932), and Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933).

On my Netflix list: The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961).

Tomorrow Friday my Top Ten Noir Films!


  1. I'm not a horror/sci-fi fan either, but "Psycho" (which is the only film from your top 10 that I've seen) is brilliant.

    You should definitely see "The Innocents." I saw it on Halloween last year and I loved it. Though it really is a bit creepy.

    1. You really need to watch Cat People. It's one of my favorites!! I really wanted to put in on my original 5 movies on an island.
