Monster Monday: The Blob

Monster Monday: The Blob

I am burdened with glorious purpose, fiends, for today is Monster Monday! I have two monsters for you today, from The Blob (1958) and The Blob (1988). Since the 1988 version is a remake of the 1958 film, you might think that both Blobs are basically the same monster. Dearest readers, they are not. The … Continue reading Monster Monday: The Blob

Monster Monday: Blood Sand

Monster Monday: Blood Sand

Happy Monday, fiends! I'm especially excited about today's movie, because it is a prime example of the Piñata Principle: today's monster comes to you from Blood Sand, AKA Killer Beach, AKA The Sand. In the movie, a group of teenagers get drunk and stupid on a beach. The drunkest and most stupid among them find … Continue reading Monster Monday: Blood Sand

Today is a sad day for horror, my dear fiends. George A. Romero, legendary director and godfather of the zombie movie genre, has passed away.

Monster Monday: Beetlejuice

Monster Monday: Beetlejuice

A very happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from one of my favorite movies. I love Beetlejuice so much that I waxed rhapsodic about Delia Deetz on Mother's Day. But... Whoa! Sandworms...ya hate 'em, right? I hate 'em myself! I'll be back later this week with some more spooky fun times, kiddies. Until then...read … Continue reading Monster Monday: Beetlejuice

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
