Universal Classic Monsters

Universal Pictures wants in on the unified franchises game being perfected by the well-oiled machine that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe and attempted by Warner Brothers’ DC Comics lineup.

But instead of acquiring a new superhero/comic book property, Universal is reaching back to some classics. It’s being reported that the studio has decided to reboot their Universal Classic Monsters, the legendary line-up of monster movies including Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Bride of Frankenstein, and The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Cover Price: $3.99

Monster & Madman #2 is the latest installment of the three-issue mini-series by writer Steve Niles and illustrator Damien Worm. When a monster and a madman cross paths, will anyone truly be safe?

As the Monster finds himself in a city filled with people – and unsure of how he got there – he is faced with the fact that no matter how many living souls may be nearby, he’ll always be alone. When a doctor who goes by the name of John Moore finds him wandering about, he takes the Monster in, revealing that it was he who found him washed ashore. As the doctor’s curiosity regarding his guest’s physical state grows and unable to shake his own wariness about the doctor’s demeanor, the Monster becomes doubtful as to whether or not he should remain in the man’s care; however, when Doctor Moore offers the Monster a deal, his advances become a little difficult to refuse.

Blu-Ray Review: Frankenstein Created Woman

Frankenstein Created Woman CoverFrankenstein Created Woman
Blu-ray (Hammer Collector’s Edition)
Director: Terence Fisher
Screenwriter: John Elder
Cast: Peter Cushing, Susan Denberg, Thorley Walters, Robert Morris
Millennium Entertainment
Not Rated | 92 Minutes
Release Date: January 28, 2013

Directed by Terence Fisher (The Curse of Frankenstein), Frankenstein Created Woman is the fourth film in Hammer’s Frankenstein series and stars Peter Cushing (Star Wars) as Baron Victor Frankenstein and Susan Denberg as his latest creation.

In the film, which was originally released in 1967, a tormented Christina (Denberg) drowns herself after her lover, Hans Werner (Robert Morris), is framed for murder and guillotined. Baron Frankenstein (Cushing), experimenting with the transfer of souls, places Han’s soul into the lifeless body of Christina, bringing her back to life. With no memories of her past life, a body occupied by two souls carries out a violent retribution on those responsible for both deaths.

Perhaps the most interesting element of Fisher’s film is that, where previous Hammer productions were concerned with the physical aspects of Frankenstein’s work, the focus here is in the metaphysical dimensions of life, such as the question of the soul and its relationship to the body.

SDCC 2013: I, Frankenstein panel

One of the best things that can happen at San Diego Comic-Con is getting a first glimpse at movies that you don’t know anything about and getting hyped for them. Such is the case with Liongate’s I, Frankenstein, which I hadn’t seen anything on, but came out of today’s panel very excited about it. Writer/director Stuart Beattie, actors Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), and graphic novel writer Kevin Grevioux (Underworld) were there to talk up the movie and show a ton of footage from the film.

Beattie started off by explaining that the story is about a Frankenstein’s monster that has lived for over 200 years. In this version, the Monster gets caught up in a war between Gargoyles and Demons.
