Hey, have you seen this year's new model? I don't even think Car & Driver has covered it yet. Get this: It drives by itself.

The Awakening

Mummy dearest.


Horror

Rod Lott
As someone who loves mummy movies, I’ve long had The Awakening on my radar, but only now has the 1980 horror thriller come within reach, thanks to Warner Archive. While the film's rep isn't sterling by any stretch, I found it to be a nice surprise.

Monster Brawl

If wrestling were like this, I'd watch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Imagine there were a pay-per-view pro wrestling championship battle in which the fighters were not your Hulk Hogans, but hulking creatures. Would you watch it?

Mad Monster Party?

We'll just drop by.


Family

Rod Lott
Before Hotel Transylvania, there was Mad Monster Party? (question mark theirs), a 1967 quasi-classic of stop-motion animation from Rankin/Bass — the company behind all those old Christmas specials that still air every year, from Rudolph to Frosty. What keeps this Party from being as perennial is that it's three times as long.

Frankenweenie

Tim Burton builds a better 'Frankenweenie' and it’s alive! It’s alive! It’s alive with humor and heart.


Youth

Rod Lott
One imagines Frankenweenie is the movie director Tim Burton has been waiting to make his entire life.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec

‘Extraordinary,’ indeed!


Action

Rod Lott
How ironic that un film par Luc Besson — the Frenchman behind such action smashes as the Taken and The Transporter series, among others — would fail to play American theaters, yet that’s what happened with The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec. The 2010 adventure finally sees the light of day on these shores from Shout! Factory; its absence from our multiplexes is not indicative of its quality.
