Universals Monster Avengers

Universal Studios wanted to make a superteam of their classic monsters, Like Marvel’s Avengers.

They are failing. Maybe its because their last Dracula and Mummy ( Tom Cruise) movies were bad and bombed.

Maybe part of the problem is that the Classic monsters have been so cheapened by their appearance on cereal boxes and such that they are not powerful fear icons any more?

Freddy Krueger stopped being scary after he became a pop culture icon.


Maybe its too late now, but one way they could have done that would have had Brendon Frasiers mummy hunter character run into Benicio Del Toros wolfman at the end of a Mummy movie.

I wasnt crazy about the Brendan Frasier Mummy films, I felt they were light weight Indiana Jones copies more than a Universal Horror film.

But I still think that Benicio Del Toros Wolfman movie was the best of all the recent resurrections of old montsers ( ” I Frankenstein” GAG!)

Shining Big Screen

I just saw the Shining on the big screen. I’ve seen it hundreds of times on VHS but its a completely different experience on the Big Screen. ( Alamo Drafthouse San Antonio). With a clean color corrected print, full screen and full sound.

QUESTION” do you think the film is saying that Jack Torrance is possessed by one of the ghosts of the Overlook ( the ghost of the caretaker) or that he is the reincarnation of the care taker? Was his face always in that B&W photo or did he join them at the end of the movie?
