Its nice that young people in today's age can appreciate an old movie.
Eh, I'm creeping out of that age where people call me young (I'm 31), plus I like classic monster movies in general (love all the old Universal horror pictures). You get weird fans like me in every generation.
I mean I'm 27, think the '33 Kong is by FAR the best one, and love the Universal Horrors. So you're not that weird. haha.
I don't know, I just always had the impression most people my age would never willingly watch anything in black and white, but maybe (hopefully) I'm wrong in that assumption. Know I certainly love a lot of these classic genre films.
Something I find interesting is I read/heard somewhere that a lot of these classic movies were considered low forms of entertainment that some studios/actors/whoever were embarrassed by because horror as a genre was believed to be lowbrow or lowest common denominator or whatever vs more drama type pictures, and yet today these movies have stood the test of time and are far better remembered and beloved than many of the "higher class" drama films.
