Karloff as The Mummy
As a kid I preferred this to the Goonies. As an adult I do too. I think it’s the only movie to feature all of the classic monsters together and thankfully all of them are done justice, particularly Tom Noonan’s creature and Duncan Regehr’s Dracula. Director of the equally underrated Night of the Creeps, Fred Dekker doesn’t skimp on the violence or scares provided by Stan Winston’s genius special effects and the typically witty Shane Black script was ahead of its time in giving characters awareness of horror conventions-almost a decade before Wes Craven’s Scream.
If this passed you by (as it has too many people) then it might be time to dig it up, if only to find the answer to the eternal question “Why does the Wolfman wear pants?”
…Quite obvious really
