Universal Monsters, Part 2.

"Welcome to the monster cluuub!", of course, being part 1.

All right, so, last year, I of course covered, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Wolfman.

Then, in the monster club post, I filled in the gaps, and did Hunchback, Phantom Of The Opera, Jekyll/Hyde, Mummy, Invisible Man, Creature From The Black Lagoon, then, brought it all the way up to Norman Bates ("Psycho"), the shark(s) from "Jaws", the dinosaurs from "Jurassic Park", and Chucky.

Well, I left some out.
That post really, really, burnt me out, and I really, really, wanted it over with, so, I thought Chucky was a good enough note to end it on.

But, finally, here's the rest.

The Leech Woman (1960)

Really? The whole "women drain you of your essence", myth?
Yeah, a misogyny fable, no wonder that one didn't become a beloved classic...

Although, it was used as MST3K fodder.

The Birds (1963)

See here.

An American Werewolf in London (1981)

See here, and here.

The Thing (1982)

See here, and here.

Darkman trilogy (1990-1996)

See here.

Tremors (1990)

See here.

Army of Darkness (1993)

See here.

Hulk (2003)

See here, and here.


Dawn of the Dead (2004)

See here.

King Kong (2005)

See here.

People have always lumped him in, now it's official.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

See here.

And, now, to bookend it, and update Drac n' Frank...

Previous updates here, and here.

Dracula: The Dark Prince (2013)

Straight to video.
Jon Voight's the only celebrity.

I, Frankenstein (2014)

The Monster is immortal, and has made it up to modern day, and is a monster slayer.
Done up all slick, and hip, by the people who did "Underworld".

Oh, and Roberto Orci says here, that Universal is keen to not only reboot the monsters, but put them together in new monster-mashes, and compares it to "The Avengers".

I kind of half-predicted it by jokingly comparing them here.

And...not Universal, but, fuck it, I don't want to do a separate post...

Godzilla (2014)

So, I guess this also picks up from "Godzilla-gala 3".

And, the trailer's out there, but keeps getting pulled, so, no point in linking it.

But, it's fucking jaw dropping, and goosebump raising.
Find it.

And there, all up to date as of 2013.

Up next, more treats.
