Monsterpiece Theater

Throughout October, our very own Rustbelt will shock and amaze you with a series he's calling Monsterpiece Theater. This will give you a classic take on the most famous horror stories of the past and how they've fared on film. Enjoy!

Monsterpiece Theater
by Rustbelt

“…When hinges creak in doorless chambers…
And strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls…
Whenever candlelights flicker…
Where the air is deathly still…
That is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!...”

Autumn is officially upon us. It’s the time of year when goblins and ghouls, witches and werewolves, and vampires and ghosts come out to play. Halloween is just around the corner. So, it’s time for haunted houses, candy corn, scary tales, and scary movies.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll look at some of the most famous horror stories and how some of their celluloid versions have fared. (Emphasis will be on adaptations of the original stories; not on sequels, spin-offs, or parodies.)

There will be scares. There will be surprises. There may even be a few murders. (Hey, this involves horror stories. That’s kind of a prerequisite.)

So sit back, relax, and ignore that shadow with the bloody claws rising from behind your TV. If you don’t, the Master will not approve.

Rustbelt, First, let me say thanks! Secondly, let me say, great picture!

Third, I am really looking forward to this series. I've gotten to read ahead and Rustbelt has done an excellent job of presenting a lot of really cool information about some very classic horror. I hope everyone enjoys it! :D

Andrew, you're very welcome! Glad you like the picture, too!

I'll be back later today after work. Until then, I invite everyone to enjoy the links and feel that good, old Halloween spirit.

Look forward to this. My DVR is usually humming in October with all the horror fare on TCM and MGM. Anything with Vincent Price, Peter Cushing or Christopher Lee is an automatic.
