    In order of merit:


    1.THE BLACK PIT OF DR. M (1958) ***
    2.THE VAMPIRE (1957) ***
    3.THE VAMPIRE'S COFFIN (1957) **1/2



    The first is undoubtedly the best Mexi-Horror film I've watched so far and the second was my introduction to the genre a few years back. On the strength of these, I'll be adding THE LIVING COFFIN (1959) to my DVD collection when it is released in late 2007.
