Universal monsters

In which Mark coins the term "Batnado"...

After a summer of hugely successful comic and sci-fi films, there's no question that mainstream audiences are ready to live in a post-"Transformers" world occupied by big budget depictions of traditionally geeky properties.

Funko has released the official list of characters it will have in its retro 80's action figure line (think Kenner era Star Wars figures), and it includes all of the major Universal Monsters and many 1980's horror icons.

It’s that wonderful time of year again! Horror movies playing 24/7 on cable, the masses planning their Halloween party costumes, and the theme parks turning their family friendly parks into blood and gore infested lands of horror!
