I’ve decided to give October Horror Month a try again after skipping it last year. So I will be re-posting reviews of the horror & psychological thriller movies I’ve watched in the past two years.
Today’s reblog is my review of the 1966 very Twilight-Zone-Like John Frankenheimer film Seconds. (Reviewed with a classic non-horror movie also worth a watch. Although that one does involve murder, so isn’t totally out of place for October…). 🙂
I have my May Roundup post ready but ended up with two more reviews that were a bit too long for a “summary” post. So here are two final quick reviews of movies I watched in May before I post the full list of 26 movies tomorrow.
Kind Hearts And Coronets (1949)
Directed by Robert Hamer
Based on Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal by Roy Horniman
Starring: Valerie Hobson, Dennis Price, Joan Greenwood, Alec Guinness
Plot Synopsis: (via IMDb)
A distant poor relative of the Duke D’Ascoyne plots to inherit the title by murdering the eight other heirs who stand ahead of him in the line of succession.
This was a fun film. I don’t really have any experience at all with the classic Ealing Studios films (I think this is my first?). I have an excuse, I suppose, as I didn’t grow…

I LOVE Seconds!! such a great concept esp given when it was made…
Yay! You like a film I liked! 😁 Agree, it has a good concept. Glad I finally watched it. 😊
knew it would eventually happen!!! even if it isnt an 80’s flick
The first time I ever watched Seconds it was on some late night ‘old movie’ channel. I loved it but I loved by myself and it depressed me. Later on that same channel I watched something called The Swimmer’ with Burt Lancaster. Seen that????
Not heard of The Swimmer but looked it up & it actually sounds pretty good! And Burt Lancaster. Isn’t he the one with sand up his bum on the beach in From Here To Eternity?! Must like swimming! (Or have liked – guess he’s dead by now…)
It is! I would love to hear what you thought about the swimmer but I bet you’d hate it. And not just YOU but probably anyone who watches it that isn’t me hahaha. I don’t think it went down as one of the classics…
Well, now I’m even more curious about it! lol
All right – that settles it! I’m going to do something about it on my place sometime soon!
Woohoo! Yay!! (What am I even replying to?! I’m so behind on comments!!!) 😩 lol
