Kenton's Island of Lost Souls is a genre classic I've wanted to see and never had the chance to, as far as I know it's never been shown on British tv or released on video or dvd. I don't know what the problem is with this film, probably the only horror/sci-fi classic that few, if any, Brits have seen, weird.

Rankings

1)House of Frankenstein
2)House of Dracula
3)Ghost of Frankenstein


Average Rating 3 out of 5

In order of merit:


1.Island of Lost Souls (1933) ***1/2
2.The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942) ***
3.House of Frankenstein (1944) **1/2
4.House of Dracula (1945) **1/2
5.Hit the Ice (1943) (uncredited) **


Mostly just the obvious horror titles for me, but I would like to watch his other comedies with Abbott & Costello (I need to buy those Universal DVD sets!) - and YOU'RE TELLING ME (1934), with W.C. Fields, even more!

*BTW - there is no film by Kenton called DOOM OF DRACULA (1966). What this refers to is a Castles Films 8mm digest version from HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN. The Dracula segment was made available for home viewing on 8mm as "Doom of Dracula".
