This week, Steve travels back to Ancient Egypt with Boris Karloff as “The Mummy.” No CGI, but scarier than Brendan Fraser’s “Mummy”!
For Halloween, Steve looks at one of the oldest, and perhaps the best-known “monster movie” of them all, James Whale’s “Frankenstein,” starring Boris Karloff.
I have spent a lot of time in previous posts dwelling in the past. I have been like an old man suddenly lost to the present, the memory of times past reeling behind his eyes while he absently stirs his tea. Well, I think perhaps I should bring this topic into the present and talk about some of the science fiction and fantasy artists working today.
There has been an explosion of fantastic art. In the past fantastic art’s only reason for being was as illustration to fantastic literature. That changed and today fantastic art is it’s own reason for being. You can find fantasy art on posters, tee-shirts, coffee mugs. You can find it on the internet almost as easily as you can find pornography or lolcats.
