Bastards of Horror!

This week, I've been doing a series called "Bastards of Horror" for my Austin Classic Movies column, dedicated to the many sequels and knock-offs that followed in the wake of Universal Pictures' early '30s horror classics. These pieces were all adapted from scripts I wrote for my old TV show "Surreal Cinema," so there are a lot more jokes than in my usual reviews. Click on titles and/or images below to read the columns:

Bastards of Horror: Son of Frankenstein (1939) vs. Son of Dracula (1943)

Bastards of Horror II: House of Frankenstein (1944) vs. House of Dracula (1945)

Bastards of Horror III: Billy the Kid vs. Dracula, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter (1966)

Bastards of Horror IV: The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942) vs. The Mummy's Ghost (1944)
