Working on a new Dangerous Films post about Cult Classics (not covered in the horror post). Here’s how some images are coming along so far.
Its an extremely brief selection of different genres like the Horror one, so I’m sure to miss a lot of great movies. Still, if there’s one that really stands out to you let me know- especially terrible 80s post apocalyptic films.
I’d like to make a SciFi/Fantasy post so I’m not sure that I would put in, say, Blade Runner- but I want films like Mad Max, Escape from New York, A Boy and His Dog- see what I mean?
cinnamon-screams replied to your post “Confession: I will always hold a slight grudge against Boris Karloff for portraying such an inaccurate version of the creature, and for making said portrayal the image that pops into everyone’s mind when they hear the name Frankenstein.”
BUT THE LEVEL OF NUANCE AND EMOTION HE WAS ABLE TO BRING TO THE ROLE WITHOUT EVEN SPEAKING! I’m sorry for yelling, but DAMN it KILLS me that people don’t appreciate Boris Karloff like they do Bela Lugosi! Karloff forever.
I get that people who love the novel (which absolutely was beautiful, complex, and philosophical) hate how it’s portrayed in popular culture. I really do.
It did NOT stick to the novel AT ALL. I mean, did any one notice how much more likable Victor is? in that he’s likable at all?
But the first two Karloff Frankenstein films were their own works of art. It’s ok to make art inspired by another work of art… that’s kind of how the whole thing works.
The people the nerdy book-fans are really mad at is the everyday schmuck who thinks the Scooby Doo version of Frankenstein is the novel. The only people who notice or get upset by their rants are other nerds who love the classic horror film.
So… it’s gonna be ok, fellow nerds. We’re all ok.

He doesn’t appreciate your modern day vocabulary?
Can you speak in tongues or “speak tongue”? Either seems like a major plus, honestly.
He has to come to accept that he can be his own kind of crazy Goth crazy person, but he has to accept you for who are as well. If he’s expecting a partner he can make in his image he’d better start digging graves and praying for lightning.
If he’s interested in taking you exactly as you are, but is off to a rocky start- that happens in a lot of new relationships. It will probably take awhile for you guys to learn where and how much you want to bend for each other.
I hope your getting some poetry out of the whole thing. ;-)
My face is melting, melting! Oh! What a world! What a world!
