Hello, and welcome to Lame Post Friday. I went running earlier, hoping to offer a Running Commentary Post. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, depending on how your tastes run, I just don’t feel like doing that. I feel like posting pictures from monster movies. Since I indulge myself on Fridays (and most other days when it comes to this blog) (don’t judge me), here is Bela Lugosi in a publicity shot from The Wolfman.
I actually had been scrolling down Facebook trying to talk myself out of my monster movie picture cop-out when I saw this picture of Bela and I just couldn’t resist. I went on to see what else I could find, skipping around to my favorite movie groups and pages.
I believe this is Basil Rathbone, Boris Karloff, Vincent Price and Peter Lorre (in the back). I’m almost sure I’ve seen this before and cannot believe I have not used it in a blog post yet. If I repeat myself, well, some things are worth repeating.
When we think of monsters, especially movie monsters, naturally we would think of Frankenstein’s monster, one of the first and one of the best. I shall conclude with a less literary monster in another publicity shot.
Full disclosure: I am not that familiar with the Planet of the Apes movies. I think Steven and I watched the first one once, but I don’t remember that much about it. I think we saw the remake and were unimpressed. Then again, one could argue that these movies are more sci fi than horror. But why argue on Lame Post Friday? I’m going to have another glass of wine. I hope you’ll tune in again for my other weekend posts.
