Illustrated Horror

There's nothing like the illustrated image of horror. It somehow stirs the imagination with excitement and adventure. I've always been attracted to bad films with great names, The Horrors of Spider Island, Zombies of the Underworld, Caverns of the Undead. The graphics and imagery that were used to promote them were extremely exciting, usually painted, and suggested a story far more interesting then the one they were selling.

The Monster

No doubt,  the Monster among monsters. I've recently been enjoying Universal's The Legacy Collection of Frankenstein.  The collection includes Frankenstein 1931, Bride of Frankenstein 1935, Son of Frankenstein 1939, Ghost of Frankenstein 1942 and House of Frankenstein 1944.  Just a little something to get your Frankenstein palette wet; the Monster played by Boris Karloff.
