Just to show you that I am not completely abandoning my kommittments this month, here's an early 1930's European horror movie.

Well, Nosferatu it ain't, but there was some good stuff here. The first 20 minutes or so was pretty cool, where this dude is wandering around seeing all sorts of weird shit, like shadows coming from nowhere and reflections of people who aren't there. And the last 15 minutes were good too. But the middle half hour is dire... nothing happens, it's an early sound film so there's barely any dialogue, and there are long passages where the main character reads from a book and the text appears on the screen for a minute or two and you just read instead of watch a movie. It was getting pretty late, and although I didn't fall asleep, I came close a few times.
