Frightful October Horror Movie Picks – DAY 19

October 19, 2013

Screen shot 2013-10-18 at 11.48.28 PM

“Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man” (1943)

Freddy vs. Jason? PA-lease! Alien vs. Predator? Child’s play more like it! The first titans of horror crossover featured the classic Universal monsters; Frankenstein’s monster, played this time by Bela Lugosi (of Dracula fame), and the son of the man of a thousand faces, Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolf Man! The movie plays out a sequel to both film series, being the fifth installment of the Frankenstein franchise, and direct part II to cursed Talbot saga.

Both thought to have been dead, the Wolf Man and the Monster meet in the town of Dr. Frankenstein’s old home town. Talbot seeks the information about life and death in Castle Frankenstein, that could possibly seek the answer he needs to cure his lycanthropy. The monsters clash during the final 10 minute show down, and for some the pay off may not be so great as Freddy and Jason’s fight, but for the fans of the classic Universal Monsters, it’s pretty cool. Original “Wolf Man” writer Curt Siodmak returns to scribe the sequel.
