One of our greatest joys in producing Horror Movie Podcast is providing quality viewing recommendations for our listeners and every so often a listener has a recommendation request that we think the whole community may benefit from participating in.
This one comes from listener Dino from Cleveland (by way of New York). Dino tweeted:
With Universal now in production on remakes of their classic films (the teaser and poster for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, was released just today), we thought this was a great time to explore the beloved originals and determine which might be essential viewing before the remakes come out.
Here’s you chance to get involved. You can select up to 10 essential Universal Monsters movies of your choosing. Please only vote once and only select a max of 10 films when you vote. You are not required to select 10 in order to vote.
Additionally, if you’d like to leave us (and Dino) some wise words about your top pick, please do so below in the comments and we’ll read the best responses on the show when we reveal the poll results. If we left any of your favorites off, please select “other” and tell us what we missed—and why it’s so great—in the comments below.
Polls close Wednesday December 7th 2016 at 8pm PST.
Of course, you can hear us discuss some of these classics in our Frankenstein Versus (Ep 83) discussion, our Dracula Versus (Ep 85) discussion, Dr. Shock’s tributes to Bela Lugosi (Ep 33) and Lionel Atwill (ep 49) , our Horror Comedy (Ep 87) discussion, our Horror for Kids (Ep 97) discussion, and all the way back to the very beginning with Dr. Shock’s Top 10 Horror Movies (on Ep 02) list.
Thanks to listener Dino for getting this ball rolling. You can follow Dino on Twitter: @
