Monster of the Week: Gwoemul (The Host) – 2006 | New 5th Edition Monster

"Let's try to be broad-minded about this."Filmed over a decade ago, the 2006 South Korean horror monster movie The Host is an excellent film.

Monster of the Week: Victor Crowley (Hatchet) – 2006 | New 5th Edition Monster

"Tell me this is part of the tour."I gotta be honest and confess I hadn't watched Hatchet until this write-up.

Monster of the Week: Bubba Ho-Tep (Bubba Ho-Tep) – 2002 | New 5th Edition Monster

Cleopatra does the nasty. It's hard not to like a horror flick that stars Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) portraying an aging Elvis Presley (presumably) as he is stalked by an Ancient Egyptian mummy. Why you may ask? Because the mummy needs to suck the souls out of mortals to keep on keepin' on. Did I … Continue reading Monster of the Week: Bubba Ho-Tep (Bubba Ho-Tep) – 2002 | New 5th Edition Monster
