October 29 - Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
This year, every Friday in October we'll watch a Halloween film and make it an Amazon Watch Party (pending unforeseen scheduling conflicts).
But we're not going to go for the usual schlocky faire as we scour the bottom of the Amazon Prime "free to me" barrel. We're going to watch a handful of films that you will have heard about and maybe seen once or twice, but make for excellent Halloween Classics.
It will set you back the cost of the rental or purchase, but, hey, these will be movies you should probably see, anyway.
Your host will be that wiley creature of the night, Count Dracula Jr., whom Jamie LOVES. Yes she does.
The Universal Monsters Hallow-Scream Watch Party series is meant to be a casual good-time as we check out the run of horror movies that started with Dracula and have become staples of culture the world over! Everyone knows what these monsters look and act like, but it's probable most people haven't ever actually seen the movies they're in! So, come watch!
Starting just two years after the silent era, these movies quickly became the blockbusters of their day, bringing strange ideas most people hadn't considered, wild visuals, and complicated creatures to the screen. And, ever since, studios have been looking to recapture this particular lightning in a bottle.
We think you'll enjoy watching along and checking out the creepfest that is Universal Horror!
