Yep, I know it’s getting late, I’m back at work early mornings and had not recovered enough from my cross-country B-Movie trip last night to get a post organized for this morning. Anyhoo, this doesn’t exactly have a Monster (unless the protagonist counts, more by dint of behavior than appearance) but it definitely has a […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Last Dance with Mary Jane"
Since I was off watching old movies all weekend, what better way to start a new week than with two of cinema’s greatest Monsters, Karloff and Price?

(Because some stuff is too much fun to only share once. -2020 Jane) This is one of my absolute favorites. Dee Snyder and Alice Cooper, plus a cameo by zombie makeup king and sometimes actor Tom Savini (who also did all the makeup effects for the video).

Anyhoo, I […]Read more "Monster, Monster II, Electric Boogaloo"

I know, I know, lame just linking to other stuff. Still knee deep in Polish, (which is worth a post or two itself at some point) but things should settle out later next month. Enjoy!Read more "Happy (Early) Halloween"
Remember my Halloween Monster Music Video Countdown from a few years back? Well, I came across this beauty today and was 1) shocked I’d never come across it before given my predilection for metal and silly videos and 2) absolutely devastated that I hadn’t know about it to include it last go-round. Ghoulies and Blackie […]Read more "How Did I Miss This One?"
And here’s the most important thing to remember as we move into Halloween itself. The creepy stuff is fun, it’s great to have a thrill or two, but ultimately evil loses out. I know, I read ahead the the end of the Book. So on that note: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Introduction to the Monster, Monster series […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Devil is a Loser"
