The monster is alive! Tomorrow on SHV.
Tomorrow we release episode 2 of our journey into the story of Universal Monsters. I've been a fan of these movies since I was an adolescent, and I had a greater than average knowledge of the players involved thanks to some popular library books in the late 80's that talked about the early horror films and monsters in an encyclopedic format. I'd read Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, I've even combed through all of the various horror artifacts at the Universal Orlando Horror Makeup show display, sat through that show several times, gotten photo ops with the characters. I saw The Beetlejuice Graveyard Review on my honeymoon, I've ridden Revenge Of The Mummy about 500 times, and I've taken a picture of literally every single prop in the Monster Cafe. So I was a big fan, but even with all of that knowledge and familiarity I've been flabbergasted at what truly fascinating stories went into the making of these movies, the lives of the people who did, and just how important these films were to inserting horror into the mainstream consciousness and ensuring that the genre lived on forever. Frankenstein may be my favorite of all of the monsters and a lot of time and care went into accurately telling the story of it's creation, reception and legacy. Please check it out when tomorrow's episode drops!
