Christopher Lee Movies

Postby iHaunt » Mon Mar 21, 2011 9:00 pm

He has been starring in horror movies longer than almost anyone living. How many Christopher Lee movies have you seen? What are your favorite CL's movies? Here's a partial list of CL horror movies.

Discuss the ones you've seen and which ones you liked and why. Since he's been in 266 movies, it's impossible for me to list all of them here. (And yes, THAT is a record). :)


The Curse of Frankenstein
Horror of Dracula
The Mummy
Dracula Has Risen from the Grave
Taste the Blood of Dracula
Scars of Dracula
Dracula AD 1972
The Satanic Rites of Dracula
The Wicker Man


As far as my favorite CL's movie go? I LOVE "The Wicker Man", but I'm also a big fan of "Horror of Dracula". 8) My grandpa loves this movie!

This thread prompted me to skim the Wikipedia entry on Lee. He has certainly had a long, varied, and lucrative career!

Like everyone else on the planet, I've seen him in movies my whole life long, but I probably saw him mostly when I was a kid, watching Friday night horror movies. I generally liked anything about Dracula.

Of course, he has appeared in modern classics like the LOTR trilogy as well as Burton's Sleepy Hollow. I read in Wikipedia that he & Anthony Head recorded the Ballad of Sweeney Todd for Burton's film, but it was cut (a bad choice, I think, as the Ballad is one of the highlights of the stage play).

I actually dislike The Wicker Man, but not because of the performances of anyone in it. I think it had a superb cast (I loved loved loved Edward Woodward, too). I just don't like the story of that film, at all. I dislike seeing the protagonist destroyed at the end. He had his faults, but he was essentially a decent man, willing to risk his life to save a child, and he was tricked and trapped. That movie leaves me with a bad feeling.

Than the movie was made properly. The Wicker Man is supposed to leave you with a bad feeling. It is supposed to be unsettling. And it succeeds in that goal.

True, Boogeyman. I guess it just isn't a movie I enjoy.
