Dr. Sam Loomis

First appearance: Halloween (1978)

Good ol' Dr. Loomis. Why is it nobody ever listens to the psychiatrist in charge of weird psychos? I guess if they did Halloween would have been a really short movie about a bunch of baby sitters fooling around in the houses of their employers.
I've always found the Donald Pleasance's delivery of the line "I shot him Six times!" at the beginning of Halloween 2 really funny. Its the way he runs the words together into one word then enunciates perfectly "I said," then crams all the words together again.
I've added the little animated voice bubbles just for something extra for Halloween.

Alien seed pods

First appearance: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

Ever have a night where you just can't fall asleep? You should pretend you're in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. That way you can say you're not sleeping in order to prevent an emotionless, vegetable clone of yourself from taking over your life. The next day you can pretend that you ARE the vegetable clone and that's why you're just numbly going about your daily routine. Its fun! Seriously though, this was a pretty creepy movie.  The remakes aren't bad either (except for that Nichole Kidman one).

Audry II

First Appearance: Little Shop of Horrors (1986)
Honestly this is one of my favorite movies of all time, although I wish they kept the down beat ending of the play. You probably know the story by now boy meets girl, they fall in love, boy meets carnivorous alien plant, plant makes promises to boy, boy kills girls masochistic dentist boyfriend, everyone dies. And you thought botany was boring.

I love this ending I wish it was finished. Black and white suits it don't you think?

The Tingler

First appearance: The Tingler (1959)

I always wish I got to see this flick in "PERCEPTO!" Oh, well. The Tingler is that thing that makes your spine tingle when you're afraid. You see its a parasite that feeds on fear. Fortunately its got a severe allergy to screaming, so if you feel your spine tingling scream otherwise your Tingler will snap your spine.

Fiend Without a Face

First Appearance: Fiend Without a Face (1958)

Canadian Air Force scientists experimenting with telekinesis get things mixed up with radiation and create invisible brain monsters that strangle people. Eventually with more radiation from a near by reactor invisible brain monsters become visible then get shot. Features a really gratuitous girl in a towel scene. Great flick with a cool monster. Only available through Criterion for something like the budget for the movie. Why's Criterion always demanding insane amounts of money for cool monster flicks? I cant afford this or the Blob. stupid Criterion.


First appearance: The Brain from Planet Arous (1957)

How can you not dig the story of a criminal alien brain that comes to earth and possesses a scientist? Especially when another alien brain shows up to arrest the first brain and possesses the dog of the fiance of the scientist! Space Brains, huh, what are you gonna do?

The Master

First Appearance: "Manos" the Hands of Fate (1966)

Quite possibly one of the worst movies ever made. I recently summoned up the courage to watch the actual movie, without the benefit of MST3K riffing going on. Its weird. Lucio Fulci weird. But without any gore. I also think there might be an interesting movie hiding in there somewhere.

Larry Talbot

First appearance: The Wolfman (1941)

Werewolves have been one of my favorite monsters ever, but I have to admit I never really liked the first wolfman move. I did really like Frankenstein meets the Wolfman, And of course Abbott and Costello me Frankenstein. I also enjoyed the remake in 2010. Shut up I liked it.

First appearance: Frankenstein (1931)

My second all time favorite of the Universal Monsters. I think I liked every one of the Frankenstein flick. Also no matter what they say the monster IS called Frankenstein. The doctor is called Victor, Victor Frankenstein. That's just the way it is with these things so get over it.

The Blind Dead

First Appearance: Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971)

What's better than zombies? Blind, intelligent, skeletal zombie knights with beards. I'm kind of disappointed I only discovered this series recently. I've only seen two of them so far, Tombs of the Blind Dead and Return of the Evil Dead (way to make sure people know its a continuing series with the titles guys, the last two are called The Ghost Galleon and Night of the Seagulls), so far the second one is the best.  check them out when you can. Trivia: at one point the american distributor tried to re-write the first blind dead movie into a sequel to Planet of the Apes they changed the title to "REVENGE OF THE PLANET APE"
Trailer's for the second one cus its more awesome.

First Appearance: Dracula (1931)

Now I've never been a huge fan of Vampires and honestly never really cared much for Drac, but he is pretty damn awesome in Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstien.
