Ghidrah! The Three Headed Monster!

I know I've written about this movie and trailer before, but like I said we are pretending those don't exist at the moment. This was the first Godzilla movie I ever owned, in 8mm form. It was also the first Rodan and Mothra movie I ever saw, so it has that going for it as well. It's one of my favorite Godzilla movies.

The Blob (1958)

I've never made a secret about it- movies about blobs and stuff scare me. Heck, even The Unknown Terror got me as a kid I know it's weird, but things like that could exist at the bottom of some lake or swamp. I read a story about years ago about a similar thing that came from the bottom of the ocean and it was just as scary.

Reptilicus - Trailer

One of my favorite monster movies, despite the overall silliness of the premise. Repticilus looks cool enough, even as a puppet, and does get to do a lot of damage to the country of Denmark. All the actors take it seriously (except the handyman, Dirch Passer as Mikkwlawn Peterson, and that was done on purpose) that it works for me. I don't expect other people to love it like me, you all can be wrong all you want.

It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown - Intro

I think it's only appropriate to start the month with the greatest Hallowe'en special of all, and the second best Peanuts special as well. Seeing this intro for the first couple times as a kid was actually a little scary, with witches, ghosts and bats all terrifying the gang- even Lucy is running away!

Super Scary October!

In years past I used to post a trailer to a monster movie a day during the Hallowe'en month of October.  The last couple years I've gotten out of the habit of doing that fun tradition, so now it's time for it to have a comeback.  My plan is to do one a day this month, and that may mean some that have been posted here years ago, but a lot of those have been taken down for a wide variety of reasons so we'll just pretend these are all new and all different this time!  Hopefully, some of those trailers will be.  I'll try to check for them to make sure, but mostly I'll be posting my favorite genre movies.

Hercules vs a sea... monster?

There is supposed to be a sea monster in the fun peplum Hercules, Samson and Ulysses.  Since most of us fans only ever saw it in a pan and scan form (wow, I do not miss those days at all) it was awfully hard to tell just what the heck Herc was battling back then.  It's the main reason our heroes all get together, but it was quite a mystery for a long time.

Europa & The Pirate Twins (1981)

I remember seeing this for the first time on Channel 12's FM-TV, before it became "Teletunes" due to some copyright and/or trademark issues. FM-TV was so low budget back then, many times the tapes would jam while playing and the picture would freeze. It was amazing to see these "new wave" videos and they played such a wide variety of music back.
