Out of the Blue

Had a monster-movie triple feature last night, watching Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy, none of which I had seen since I was a kid. This turned out to be interesting, because they were all pretty different than I recalled. This especially applied to The Mummy, which I remembered being about people being menaced by a guy wrapped in bandages, but turns out to be more similar to the Brendan Fraser remake than that. Watching these films together also highlighted that Dwight Frye, the same actor who was so memorable as Renfield in Dracula, was also Fritz the hunchback in Frankenstein, which is pretty cool. I actually remembered that character's name as Igor, just one of many details about the movie blurred from seeing Young Frankenstein several times since the last time I saw the original.

So I assume you recently got the Universal Classic Monsters collection on blu-ray (or some of the single movie releases). That's a really good set with nice transfers and some great bonus features for the signature movies. Boris Karloff was terrific in the Mummy. It's slow but very atmospheric with great shadowy cinematography.

Yeah, that's exactly what I did. I am very impressed by the quality of the restorations. It's a great set.

I tend to prefer the classics:

Jekyll and Hyde...Together Again

A true classic that no one ever saw but when I was younger I thought it was awesome

I like a lot of the old Hammer flicks with Cushing and Lee.

i know it's almost taboo among the elitist star wars crowd, but i'm pretty pumped for season 3 of rebels. i think it's better than clone wars

As long as you pronounced Fronkensteen correctly.
A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test. It's a compassion test. It's a decency test. It's a social responsibility test.
