In this BONUS episode of Horror Movie Podcast—which also serves as a trial run for the upcoming Universal Monsters Cast—Wolfman Josh and Dr. Shock discuss listener feedback from the HMP “Essential Universal Monsters” poll, give their personal classic Universal Horror recommendations, and give their initial thoughts on the teaser trailer and first poster for The Mummy (2017), as well as the potential for a new shared cinematic universe. Doc also brings his picks for the best monster movies of the 1930s that were not made by Universal Pictures.
