Icons of Horror: Universal Monsters

When it comes to the icons of horror, none are more famous than the Universal Monsters! Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Creature From the Black Lagoon are the most recognized monsters ever to grace the silver screen. In this video, we'll talk about what makes them special and why they've endured for nearly a century.

The Invisible Man Returns (1940)

The first sequel to 1933's groundbreaking special effects horror smash The Invisible Man didn't arrive until 1940, a full seven years after the movie that precedes it. Things had changed so much in movie making that The Invisible Man Returns feels like it comes from an entirely different era of film; yet, a quick review of the facts shows that Universal never stopped creating horror films, and the seven years that span between The Invisible Man and The Invisible Man Returns are filled with some true classics. So why does The Invisible Man Returns feel so different?

Welcome To My Alice Cooper CD Collection

If you're a fan of classic Cooper, from "Welcome To My Nightmare" to "Billion Dollar Babies" to "DaDa" (plus a few surprises along the way), then this video is for you!

The Invisible Man (1933)

I recently had the great pleasure of picking up Universal's newly-released The Invisible Man Legacy Collection, which contains all six films from the classic horror series. As I've been making my way through the set, it occurs to me that I've been unfair to this particular franchise; I have relegated the character of The Invisible Man to second-string status, not of the same pedigree as the titans of horror, particularly Bela Lugosi's Dracula, Boris Karloff's Frankenstein, and Lon Chaney Jr.'s Wolf Man. In all honesty, I'm still struggling with whether or not The Invisible Man, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, and The Mummy exist on a lower level than their iconic brethren, but I will also admit that I think I've misjudged The Invisible Man, particularly the first film in the series from 1933. It's time for a Cereal At Midnight review!

Icons of Horror: Vincent Price

For our second foray into the icons of horror, we're talking about a man whose career has become practically synonymous with horror. Of course, it's Vincent Price, a man with a style all his own and a resume that consists of some of the most classic genre films ever. With a career that spans both legitimate studio classics as well as low budget B-movie fare, Vincent Price (Vinnie P. to us) was a master who is most definitely deserving of "icon" status.

Terror At Tenkiller and The Last Slumber Party (Scream Theater Vol. 2)

Of all the subgenres of horror, slasher films are one of my absolute favorites. In the past, I've tried to put my finger on why exactly this is, and I think I've decided it's because the slasher film was the flavor du jour of my childhood. Video stores were hungry for content and slashers were easy to produce. You could take a skeleton crew out into the woods or a campground with very little money (slashers usually don't require any fancy special effects) and make a serviceable horror movie in no time flat. That's why slasher films seem to have the worst reputation in all horror; they're cheap, usually require very little imagination, and were a dime a dozen in the 1980s.
