It's alive, it's alive! The new Poster-Crop Quiz is aliiiiive! This week, in honor of the release of I, Frankenstein, we thought we'd take a look at Hollywood's ongoing love affair with the original rogues gallery of the Universal Monsters. Over the years, iterations of the monsters have cropped up in various forms; some comedic, some horrific, some so horrifically bad that they then became comedic despite themselves.
We've gathered posters from a few of our favorite Universal Monster offshoots and then let the Wolf Man tear them to shreds. See if you can decipher which images came from which posters, leaving your guesses in the comment section below. The fist person to correctly identify all 10 will receive a shout-out in next week's quiz. Garlic-tipped silver bullets sold separately.
I could think of no better appetizer for this quiz than the poster Fred Dekker's outstanding Monster Squad. You can talk about The Goonies all you want, but a group of foul-mouthed scamps taking on the whole cadre of Universal Monsters? Winner.
Last week's answers: Mama, Cloverfield, Legion, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hitcher, My Bloody Valentine, Daybreakers, Hostel, Devil Inside, One Missed Call. In truly apropos fashion, last week's champion was... Grimwolf!
