Another highly-anticipated Scary Movie Month spot for my schedule. Had to pull from storage my old 58" 3D Vizio TV (I traded up to a 65" 4K TCL set two years ago), clean the damn thing, set it up and update my Blu-ray player's OS.

Never Take Sweets from a Stranger (1960)Like an extended Law & Order SVU.
I just got a Mill Creek collection of Hammer films with that one it. I considered watching Never Take Sweets... but realized it was more of a crime drama than a horror film. Most of the films in the set are thrillers, actually. Hammer was a lot more than horror.
Probably the same set I have if it has The Snorkel, Maniac, etc. Way more thriller/crime drama/suspense but was blown away by the performances. Sometimes, true horror is right next door. Long live Hammer!
