Yes, I have the type it in, backspace it out disease. I am going to combat it with — you guessed right! — MIDWEEK MONSTERS!!! If monsters can’t cheer me up, nothing can!
The warm weather makes me think of summer, so here is one of my favorite summertime monsters: Bruce, the title baddie in JAWS (1975). What a fun flick, and a good story on the making of (as seen, for example in True Hollywood Story, which I used to watch all the time back in the early ’00’s).
I don’t believe I ever saw this movie, but I find this to be a delightfully cheesy poster. And, look, it was produced and directed by Roger Corman. Its cheesy bonafides are confirmed!
Here is a bloody poster, from a Hammer Horror Flick. I enjoy these movies, although they are more gory than my usual taste.
You just knew I would include a shot of Nosferatu (1922), didn’t you? Andnow time is getting away from me, so I sign off. The monsters did cheer me up. I hope they had a similar effect on you (Freudian typo: I put “cher” me up. If I could turn back time!).
