  1. I’m sure this list isn’t meant to be the end-all, be-all, but here’s some of the movies missed from 1945 – 1949, based off my research.

    1945:

    Pillow of Death
    Sortilèges
    Strange Confession
    The Frozen Ghost
    The Jade Mask
    The Phantom Speaks
    Woman Who Came Back

    1946:

    Bedlam
    Strangler of the Swamp
    The Brute Man
    The Curse of the Wraydons
    The Face of Marble
    The Spider Woman Strikes Back

    1947

    La herencia de la Llorona
    Uncle Silas

    1948

    Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (if horror-comedies would count)
    Castle Sinister
    Daughter of Darkness
    House of Darkness
    The Amazing Mr. X
    The Creeper
    The Greed of William Hart
    The Monkey’s Paw

    1949

    The second half of the 40’s is certainly dire when it comes to horror, but it’s not as bad as many make it out.
