May Monster Madness Year 3

Or at least, it's year 3 for me. It's too midnight for me to fact-check.

May Monster Madness is an annual blogging event hosted by Annie Walls, Little Gothic Horrors, and Something Wicked This Way Comes*. The object is to write a post on something pertaining to horror and or monsters, in any way you like. It could be about a film, or crocheting, or it could be about that corpse of Loch Ness you have chained in your basement...

Instead of being over the course of a week, May Monster Madness will only be on the 30th of May this year. The last two years, I've written many reviews for MMM, and since this only comes once a year, I'd like to do something special for the one day I have, so I will be writing a gargantuan post, reviewing thirteen movies, all starting with the letter M (with the occasional 'The'-They count, right?). I'll be reviewing:

The Manster,
The Murder Mansion,
Man in the Attic,
My Mom's a Werewolf,
The Monster That Challenged the World,
The Mighty Peking Man,
The Mutilator, and
Manos "The Hands of Fate"

Hope to see you there!


  1. Haha. It's 3 years for all of us, Chris! No need for further fact-checking.

    I hope someone really does post about "that corpse of Lock Ness you have chained in your basement... " ;) Looking forward to your gargantuan monster post and thanks for spreading the word!

  2. Wowsers, this will be awesome! Very excited for your post.

    The Manster - so effin' silly.
    The Murder Mansion - creepy as fuck!
    Metamorphosis - the Italian one, or the semi-sequel to "Deadly Spawn"?
    Medusa - just horrible.
    Mindkiller - stupid as fuck.
    Man in the Attic - decent.
    My Mom's a Werewolf - dumb.
    The Monster That Challenged the World - very solid.
    Monstroid - ridiculous.
    The Mighty Peking Man - absolutely badass! Did that one for last year's madness.
    Mortuary - quite decent.
    The Mutilator - hilarious!
    Manos "The Hands of Fate" - a guilty pleasure of mine!

  3. I got the inspiration by selecting a bunch of Public Domain films to review. And how did I find out what PD M movies there were? By reading your blog, coincidentally enough!

    The Italian one, I think.

    I'm now looking so forward to The Mighty Peking Man that I might swap it and The Manster around and watch it first!

  4. Woohoo, I feel honored ^_^

    You wanna check out the American one too? It's silly as hell, but in a fun way.

    Mighty Peking Man just kicks ass. IMO a much better film than Jackson's underwhelming King Kong flick.

  5. I'll make sure to sometime soon.

    Underwhelming for sure! As I like to say, there did not need to be an adaptation of King Kong as long as 1900! If only Jackson stuck to his original semi-comedic adventure script. That would have at least been original.
