One of the first movies that kept me up at night was a version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein that I saw during my grade school years on a late night ‘creature feature.’
I’ve searched IMDB.com to no avail, trying to locate the specific retelling. But I do have a memory of the final scenes — Dr. Frankenstein destroying himself and his monster. And the monster says, “Well done, master.”
No wonder I had nightmares.
There’s yet another remake of the classic story, starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, coming out at Thanksgiving time .
This one looks like as much fun as fright. I’m in!

I have a home office, and often keep the TV on for a little background noise in the apartment.
This afternoon I am working on the couch in front of the TV. The sound is down low, so it’s more of a pleasant hum than a distraction.
But then this image filled the screen during a commercial break —
Geez oh pete, HBO…don’t throw around the Black Swan willy-nilly.
That’s some seriously scary shit.

Earlier today I got a “GODZILLA ALERT” via text message from AMC Theatres, making sure I was aware that the legendary lizard arrives tomorrow.
From what I’ve read, this rendition of the mythical monster is the largest ever.
(Apparently Godzilla has gotten more ginormous with each creature feature.)
But he still can’t use a mobile phone or tablet. So I clearly have the advantage in this situation. I can get the heck out of Dodge, or run to the theatre and watch him wreck havoc on the folks who didn’t get advance warning.
Gotta join AMC Stubs, people.
