Monster Monday: An American Werewolf in London

Happy Monster Monday! Today’s monster comes from one of my favorite movies: An American Werewolf in London. David (David Naughton) and Jack (a scene-stealing Griffin Dunne) are backpacking through England when they are attacked by a werewolf.

Monster Monday: Ghostbusters

Monster Monday: Ghostbusters

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today I have a slew of monsters for you from the endlessly quotable classic Ghostbusters. (I'm just doing original recipe Ghostbusters today. I actually enjoyed the remake a lot, but if I did a post on that movie I would just bombard you guys with Holtzmann gifs, so it wouldn't exactly qualify … Continue reading Monster Monday: Ghostbusters

Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from one of my favorite movies: Night of the Creeps, a fantastic homage to '50s B-movies directed by Fred Dekker and starring my man Tom Atkins as Detective Ray Cameron. This is my favorite role of his, which is saying a lot. I don't think I've written much … Continue reading Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

Monster Monday: Satan’s Little Helper

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from one of my favorite "What the hell is this?" video store finds: Satan's Little Helper. It has such a good title that I have been tempted to decree one of Jessia's Laws of Horror in its honor, but unfortunately I have been disappointed by movies with similarly … Continue reading Monster Monday: Satan’s Little Helper

Monster Monday: Hobgoblins

Monster Monday: Hobgoblins

A very happy Monster Monday to you all! Today's monster comes from the inimitable 1988 classic Hobgoblins. This movie is absolutely terrible, and I love it dearly. It is also the subject of one of the best episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. (Director Rick Sloane has a great sense of humor - he submitted … Continue reading Monster Monday: Hobgoblins

Monster Monday: They Live

Monster Monday: They Live

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from John Carpenter's classic anti-establishment sci-fi-action-horror-comedy They Live. Featuring one of the most famous fight scenes and one of the most hilariously ludicrous tough guy lines in film history, They Live is a must-see. I normally only include monster photos on Monster Monday, but since today is a … Continue reading Monster Monday: They Live
