The Date: October 15
The Movie: City of the Dead (1960)
What Is It?: John Llewellyn Moxey supposedly gave his witch flick the Psycho structure before Psycho even came out, but even if he was ripping off Hitchcock, his film is still great because of its high-contrast B&W images, the always welcome presence of Christopher Lee, and one of the great horror performances from Patricia Jessel.
Why Today?: On this day in 1920, Patricia Jessel was born.
