- Bride of Frankenstein
It’s interesting to see just how much of the Frankenstein mythos not only isn’t in the book, but isn’t in the first movie.
- Down Among the Sticks and Bones
Creepy tale of twins transported to a world out of 1930s monster movies. Hangs together better than the first book.
The original Dracula is a great read, not just for the way it codified modern vampire lore, but the way it’s built as a collection of letters, diary entries, and so on.
- From Hell (Movie)
A fairly decent Jack the Ripper film (if there is such a thing), but tossed out the main themes of the graphic novel.
- House of Frankenstein
A rather disjointed tale of revenge focusing on Dracula in one segment, the Wolfman in the other, and not much on Frankenstein’s monster.
- The Day the Dead Came to Show and Tell
Seared into my memory. Cascading failures as zombies attack an elementary school. Well-written, but I never, ever want to read it again.
