Those Lon Chaney, Jr. Kharis the Mummy movies are definitely a matter of taste. When I was a kid I thought the mummy was the scariest of all the monsters and, next to The Creature From the Black Lagoon, my favorite. My Mummy model was the pride of my monster model collection.  But those movies just seem kind of dumb and repetitive (a big part of each one is always made up of flashbacks to earlier mummy movies!), and I can never understand why the mummy's victims just don't run away.  Heck, ususally they could get away from him by just walking at a brisk pace! Of course, I still rewatch them all every few years!  TeddyR

I'd add THE OLD DARK HOUSE, THE BLACK CAT, and WEREWOLF OF LONDON to the list of 'must see' 30s Universal horror films.

Funny thing about THE INVISIBLE MAN, there seem to be two camps: the "pro-Una" and the "anti-Una". Some people think Una O'Connor as the inn keeper is hilarious in this (and BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN) and others think she's obnoxious, over-the-top,  and spoils the whole atmosphere of the films.

 I'm definitely "Pro-Una"!

Yeah, I liked The Creature, too... I'm definitly anti-Una... Invisible man's a great movie, but virtually every character in it seems daffy... too much lead paint, methinks...

Karma for Telegonus, nice to see you here!   Thumbup 
It's worth noting that Whale's best known films were all made before 1937, and there are no doubt creaks (particularly with FRANKENSTEIN) but the marriage of horror and humor was innovative, and allowed the audience a means of release, thru laughter, and set a model for horror filmmakers to follow up until today.

I think Una's screaming was a bit much, but I still thought her character was pretty great.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
