…I Will Cause Fear
I have always been a huge fan of the original [Universal] monsters of horror — Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Wolf Man, and last, but not least, Frankenstein’s monster. Needless to say that when I heard of the new plans to have a huge monster cinematic universe all tied together a la Marvel, I was beyond excited. It may be some time before we see the beginning of those plans flesh out, [...]
No More Frankenpuns?
Frankenstein's Hungry Dead Review
Indie filmmakers tackle all sorts of sub-genres; Slashers, creature features, and the paranormal are all fair game, but there is one area of horror cinema that doesn’t seem to get too much attention.

Ever since I finally decided to do so, I fell in love with the entire franchise. I [...]
Such Power, Such Knowledge
Frankenstein Created Woman Review
In order to take a break from today’s special effects heavy films, filled with blood and gore, I like to revisit some of the more classic horror films that shaped what the genre has become today. Always being a fan of the Universal monsters, I’ve naturally been interested in also viewing some of Hammer Films’ iterations of the famous monsters, Dracula, the Wolf-man, etc. I never did, however, get a chance to check any out… until now.
Much different than [...]
