The Monster Fest Rides Again this time haunting about on J360 Jams and in honor of this grand festival. J-Man’s hosting over 40 tracks and each one has a bit of that haunting flavor to keep the spooky season alive and well. You’ll also hear some new musicians making their jams debut in addition to the veterans who are still making names for themselves.

This week J-Man discusses Venom: Let there be Carnage, along with delivering some horrific nightmare tales, he will also discuss the dangers of mob mentality and how to actually do what you can to avoid being suckered into social settings that don’t serve you.
The Monsters fest continues this week J-Man discusses some more movies from Valentine and Urban Legends. This week is featuring a long amount of content and J-Man delivers it to you with something interesting from the J360 Hangouts.
Continuing on the Monster Fest, I decided to look into the Abbott and Costello Comedies for a revisiting. I enjoyed when they met Frankenstein and I loved how they saw the invisible man (pun) at the end of the movie. As to make room for this particular film, however it’s not what you would be expecting so I guess “expect the unexpected” plays a big role in viewing this film.
This film is different from its predecessor for the right reasons, and it revolves around them dealing with one universal monster: The Invisible Man. The invisible man has always been different people (There was an invisible woman) at one point too and in this case it’s a framed boxer trying to clear his name after being suspected of killing his fight manager for refusing to take a dive.
Unfortunately in the test of trying to clear his name he recruits newly graduated private investigators: Abbott and Costello leading to a unique comedy of errors from beginning to end. The classic gags take place along with the one-liners and scene stealing moments from the comedy duo to the point where it takes away from the Invisible Man plot but it’s still relevant in other ways. Such as it being a race against the clock before the invisible man’s newfound freedom could drive him insane (just like the original).
I would tell you that everything works out but it’s up for you to see that it does because this movie is actually pretty good on its own and if it’s not scary enough for you well…move on to the next feature but if you want something light with a bit of horror. This one shouldn’t “disappear” from your list.
The Wolf Man scores another perfect 5 on the rating scale with Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man.
This movie had a bit riding for it as a sequel to both the Wolfman and Ghost Of Frankenstein. It’s also in my opinion a sequel that lives up to the hype and carries on better.
Talbot’s tortured legacy continues on after he’s resurrected and at best all he wants to do is die and his obsession for answers is what leads him to Frankenstein’s estate and all of the darkness in that legacy as well.
This is actually my favorite of the Universal Horrors films. When crossovers are done right they can lead to excellent storytelling. Not to mention featuring two icons in one great movie. This film led the way for House of Frankenstein, House of Dracula, and the Universal Monsters meeting Abbott and Costello.
Bring on the bloody knuckles! Ok starting the fest off right with this universal classic.
The Monster Fest is in full swing as The Wolf Man scores a perfect 5 on the rating scale. This one has it all, a tortured protagonist, a doomed love story, dark atmosphere, and we’ll written characters.
I find myself replaying the Wolf Man often during the spooky season because Talbot’s story is so enriching and everyone complements each other well. Plus this is one of those films that grew well as time moved on so it’s a horror gem far as I’m concerned.
