  UNIVERSAL HORRORS
The Mummy
Karl Freund, 1932
.......................................................................................................................................
Why settle for a museum exhibit on mummification when you can experience a ritual that raises one from the dead? To do that, we'll need the scroll that brought Osiris back to life. If it was returned to the place we're thinking of, the person to ask is Sir Joseph Whemple (Arthur Byron).

Dracula
(1) Yes, he was. (2) He didn't believe in superstitions. (3) Dracula was the spider, "Spinning his web for the unwary fly." He also added, "The blood is the life." (4) He was also wearing a top hat and a pair of white gloves. (5) Rats, but he also craved nice, juicy spiders. The reason why he ate flies was because they were easier to find.

(6) The reflection that couldn't be seen in the mirror of the cigarette box. (7) Under no circumstances were the windows in her room to be opened. (8) "It reminds me of the broken battlements of my own castle in Transylvania." (9) "Punish me, torture me. But let me live. I can't die with all those lives on my conscious. All that blood on my hands."

The Mummy
He hid the scroll in a wall safe behind a bookcase.
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

Frights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
..................................
2. Renfield was told that Dracula's castle was full of vampires. But he chose to ignore that warning. Why? It makes you wonder if he was in his right mind to begin with, doesn't it?

3. The ruined castle, the coffins, Dracula's hypnotic stare, any one of those should have been enough to convince Renfield of the stories he heard. He was even given a warning of some type after Dracula introduced himself. What would Professor Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) have been referring to if he remarked, "You should have fled the castle when you heard that"?

4. Let's say Dracula's first female victim (Anita Harder) was found alive. Her description of the count would have differed in some way from Renfield's. For instance, she probably would have told the authorities that he was wearing a cape. What else?
5. An autopsy on Lucy's (Frances Dade) body revealed that she died from an unnatural loss of blood. The word "unnatural" could have also been used to describe Renfield's diet. Did his cravings lean towards spiders, flies or rats?

6. Wouldn't it have been ironic if it took something that couldn't be seen to convince Harker (David Manners) that Dracula (Bela Lugosi) was, in fact, a vampire? What are we referring to?

7. Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) asked Briggs (Joan Standing) to place the wreath that was made out of wolfs bane around Mina's (Helen Chandler) neck to protect her from Dracula after she retired for the night. He also asked her to watch Mina closely, and to make sure she didn't remove it in her sleep. Are we forgetting anything?

8. They say that imitation is
the sincerest form of flattery, unless you're mocking someone. That's what Mina did when she mimicked Dracula's accent. The question is; which of his words did she repeat?

9. It was Renfield who cried, "God will not damn a lunatic's soul (because) he knows the powers of evil are too great for those of us with weak minds." If he truly believed that, he wouldn't have said what he did to Dracula while he was pleading for his life. What were his last words?
The story began on the eve of "Walpurgis Night" which translated to "The night of evil." Was Renfield (Dwight Frye) aware of that when he left for Dracula's (Bela Lugosi) castle?
Tod Browning, 1931
