There were only a few horror films, the best one is EFIALTIS from the early 60s. But horror films are more difficult to follow the story.

Please let us know more info on EFIALTIS? Also, how many horror films were made in Greece? I only know:

The 1983 film Dracula of Exarcheia by Nikos Zervos. O Drakoulas ton Exarheion is a pretty wild film, kind a like Rocky Horror Picture Show or a consert video with a horror movie plot. Pretty entertaining even without subs or dialogue I can understand.

The 1977 romantic comedy called Island of Death by Nico Mastorakis, who also did the 1976 sci-fi thriller Para Psychics.

The 1976 film Devil's Men by Kostas Karagiannis, who also did the thriller Rape Killer. Unfortunately the Devil's Men is a bit wooden, even though it has it's moment and a nice cast (Donald Pleasence and Peter Cushing). Peter Cushing was also in the Incense for the Damned, a 1971 British film mostly filmed in Greece. There are of course a lot of cult films filmed in Greece, like Sergio Martino's La coda dello scorpione or the Masuo Ikeda's Dedicato al mare Egeo...

EFIALTIS (=NIGHTMARE) is a very scary horror film from the early 60s!

Is it out on DVD? Or even VHS?

Yes, but are there more horror titles than the Dracula of Exarcheia, Island of Death, Para Psychics, Devil's Men, Rape Killer and the elusive Efialtis?

Thanks Miltos :cheers:

ENOHES SHESEIS (O GIOS MOU O STEFANOS), NIGHTMARE (EFIALTIS) and EGLIMA STO KOLONAKI sure sound good. And I love the naive art on the VHS of DRACULA KAI SIA :tapelove:
