“It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.” When that’s the best praise that a film can get these days, that should tell you what you need to know about the state of cinema these days. “The mummy herself is rather bland, boring, and pointless.” And when that’s the description of the “horrible, eldritch monster” of your film, that’s pathetic.

The “Horror Monster as Action Adventure” worked for the Brandon Frasier film about two decades ago. The thing is, the Universal Monsters are supposed to be HORROR. But I’m not even sure you could do good horror movies with the Universal Monsters today. Let’s take a few examples: Frankenstein’s Monster – he would be a more sympathetic character today. Does the paradigm, “He can’t help what he is” sound familiar in today’s modern cultural landscape? Count Dracula – Vampires run a gambit from the stake-fodder weaklings that Buffy and Blade slaughter by the hundreds to the sleek emo sexy vampires… Read more »

If they did bring in Dracula, they should totally give him a red trenchcoat, a pimp hat, two huge pistols, and a Police Girl vampire sidekick. And give her a giant honking cannon named after the floating fat guy from Dune.

Sorry about the double-posting. It seems the site ate my first comment, then spit it back up after I made the second.
