Everyday I'm featuring one of my favorite monsters and today is mummies. The original undeadcame around, decayed and shambling, long before zombies graced the silver screen. This first mummy, played by the epic Boris Karloff (famous for his portrayal of monsters), first appeared in 1932 and set the tone for what would become a classic monster.
But beyond all that, the classic was, at its heart, a romance. A love story that defied death itself and dared the viewer to dream of passion beyond the life span. It's an idea that made you root for the monster and that's the best way to feel about a monster.
Once again, check out the others on the list by and check back tomorrow for more monsters.
