Monster Monday: Satan’s Little Helper

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: The Gentlemen

Monster Monday: The Gentlemen

Greetings and salutations, denizens of the Internet. Rejoice, for today is Monster Monday! I have been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer lately, so today's monster is the creepiest of all the BTVS baddies: The Gentlemen. Appearing in "Hush," one of the best episodes of the series, The Gentlemen – who are so … Continue reading Monster Monday: The Gentlemen

I normally only include monster photos on Monster Monday, but since today is a … Continue reading Monster Monday: They Live

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today we celebrate a monster even more fearsome than the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog: the Lepus. Night of the Lepus is an eco-horror film released in 1972 (the same year that Frogs was released — that was a great year for terrible horror). In the movie, human interference in wildlife populations and genetic experimentation on … Continue reading Monster Monday: Night of the Lepus

Monster Monday: Piñata

Monster Monday: Piñata

Happy Monster Monday! Today I'd like to introduce you to one of Jessia's Laws of Horror: a film's quality is inversely proportional to the number of title changes it undergoes after its theatrical release. I call this the Piñata Principle. When I saw this movie on opening night, it was called Piñata. (Shockingly, my friend and … Continue reading Monster Monday: Piñata
