Unseen Horrors: The 1995 Unmade Version Of THE MUMMY By Mick Garris!

This past weekend, Universal Pictures launched their proposed and ambitious slate of upcoming monster movies, currently being touted under the banner of the “Dark Universe,” with the Tom Cruise fronted THE MUMMY. And as is the case with me when any franchise comes back, my inner fanboy must go back and revisit every film in the series. […]

The True Story of THE MUMMY!

Carl Laemmle Jr. had taken over Universal Studios, the studio his father created, just as the talkies started. Called Junior by those closest to him, Carl learned at the feet of his father, but he knew that he couldn’t just copy what had happened before; he needed to keep the studio fresh and forward facing.

Universal Pictures Announces DARK UNIVERSE Starting With THE MUMMY; BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN Is Up Next!

We’ve always known that THE MUMMY has been intended to kick off yet another monster-based “shared” universe, which quite frankly, is something the original Universal Monster movies did to begin with. I always kind of appreciate that each sequel would pick up where ever the last one left off (like The Wolfman and Frankenstein’s monster […]

Meet Dr. Jekyll In This New Featurette For THE MUMMY!

If there’s one thing I love, it’s the Universal Monster Movies. They were, after all, my earliest recollections of the horror genre, and what turned me into the horror fanatic I am now. I rather like the various updates and reinterpretations we’ve seen over the years. Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 DRACULA is a visual feast. […]

Is This New MUMMY A “Horror” Movie… Or What?

It’s been in the works for a while now, but for the last several years, Universal Studios has been looking for the appropriate way to relaunch their series of world-famous monsters. It hasn’t been easy. Francis Ford Coppola’s DRACULA was a stellar and proper adaptation of the original Bram Stoker book, but that came out […]
