Monsterpalooza 2015

Another successful Monsterpalooza occurred this weekend.  In Burbank, California, only minutes away from Universal Studios where such classics as "Frankenstein", "Dracula", and "The Wolf Man" were filmed, monster fans from all around the world join together and celebrate the art of the monsters.  Below are some of my favorite pieces from the show.

Lifesize Aurora Wolf Man
Lifesize Aurora Mummy
Lifesize Aurora Frankenstein
The Unholy Three
From "Gremlins 2"
The Gunslinger from "Westworld"
The Caretaker from Disneyland's "The Haunted Mansion."

What If?

What if Bela Lugosi appeared in "Dracula's Daughter"?  I think the movie would have been a lot more memorable, even though I think "Dracula's Daughter" is great.
