Welcome to my new segment here at The Midnight Society! Each Tuesday you can find me here, posting my review on a specific horror film I’ve watched. I’ll also be Tweeting my major thoughts while I watched the movie, so please join me on Tuesday, noon-2:00pm EST on Twitter. I’ll be using #horrormovie and #MidnightSociety.
The movie for the week will be based on what I’m in the mood for and will come from a variety of sources: the library, Redbox, Netflix, my own collection. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
Frankenstein vs. The Mummy
“Thus strangely are our souls constructed, and by such slight ligaments are we bound to prosperity of ruin.” ~Mary Shelly
This whole idea of review horror movies came to me when I went in search of a good movie to watch (we currently do not have cable and I’ve already had 3 marathons of BtVS). Nothing at the Redbox was calling to me, that is until I saw the title Frankenstein vs. The Mummy. I figured if nothing else, I’d get a kick out of a campy movie. And it wasn’t even campy:(
I wasn’t surprised that the acting wasn’t the best, that the kissing/love making scenes was kind of pathetic, or that the end fight was all over a girl. The part that really bugged me was the lack of action. Frankenstein and The Mummy don’t fight until the last 5 minutes of the movie! The entire movie led up to the fastest ending ever, which disappointed me a little. Here’s the trailer just in case you want to take a closer look.
