This is part one of a blog series that I love to run every October. I reuse some posts and add new films every year.

I have been a fan of horror movies since I was a child. I grew up watching Universal movies from the 1930s and 1940s being shown on various themed TV shows with horror hosts. As an adult, my love for these films has not waned; in fact, it has grown and helped to feed my scholarly interest in film. I use these films in some of the classes I teach in college.

Two films, in particular, stand out to me from the 1920s. (They will certainly not be the only 1920s horror films I feature.) They both starred Lon Chaney Sr., the Man of a Thousand Faces, and were made by Universal Studios.
