The Universal Horror films from 1931 to 1946 and a few into the 1950s are my favorite horror films.

The Hammer Horrors from the 50s to the 70s take second place for horror films.

The ratings for these films are based on how much I personally enjoy them.

Curse of Frankenstein
Horror of Dracula
Brides of Dracula
Scars of Dracula
The Mummy
Curse of the Werewolf

Revenge of Frankenstein
Dracula Prince of Darkness
Dracula Has Risen from the Grave
Hound of the Baskervilles
Five Million Years to Earth

Frankenstein Must be Destroyed
The Evil of Frankenstein

Dracula AD
Frankenstein Created Woman

Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell
Curse of the Mummy's Tomb
Satanic Rites of Dracula
Horror of Frankenstein

Kiss of the Vampire
Taste the Blood of Dracula
Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

Abomonable Snowman of the Himalayas

The Mummy's Shroud
One Million Years BC -
When I first saw this movie in 1966 at 17 I would have rated it A+ because of Raquel Welch running around half dressed.

Blood from the Mummy's Tomb

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth

A great job grading the Hammer Horror films, Dan. Your list makes me want to give Scars of Dracula another look (I have a copy of it) as well as Revenge of Frankenstein (I don't have a copy, though).

I agree with you about Raquel Welch in One Million Years B.C., she made quite a splash in that film. And I believe it is the only Hammer Film to include the stop-motion work of the great Ray Harryhausen.

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth deserved the low grade you gave it, it's pretty ridiculous. Some might find it worth watching for Victoria Vetri and the other ladies in fur bikinis, but there is little else to recommend it.
