Yep. It’s time to go back to the classics. The Universal classics, baby. It’s time for Franken-freaking-stein, mother-effers. This is such a damn great movie. You know, we’re so used to these iconic creatures and established tropes, that you sometimes forget that they all started somewhere. Mary Shelley’s book was the inspiration, but so much … Continue reading 10/24/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #24 – Frankenstein (1931).
Yes, this is first and foremost a horror movie list. I get that these are usually scary movies for Halloween. But guess what, sometimes you need a comedy thrown in here and there.

My favorite place in the … Continue reading 10/20/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #20 – Crimson Peak.
