    They've got fangs, stitches, gills, cloth and nothing to see at all. Which Universal monster is your favorite?

    Frankenstein by far, quickly followed by The Wolf Man. God, I love all those movies. :)

    It's a tie between the Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Mummy, and the Wolfman but actually I like all of the old monsters. Those were great movies.

    I've always liked the Frankenstein monster....couldn't help but look at him with pity. The Wolfman was also a very very close second. Those are classics that I never get tired of watching.

    As a series of films, they each eventually wore out their welcome. Dracula got pretty silly, Wolf Man went nowhere on his own, Frankenstein was abused by poor alternatives to Karloff, the Creature sequels define deminishing returns, and I never even really enjoyed the Invisible Man and Phantom. The less said about the Mummy films after the first, the better.

    But favorite monster? Frankenstein. When it was good, it was really good.

    The Creature from the Black Lagoon by far. He's awesome, and his movies are excellent too, especially the first. He can't be beat if you ask me. Invisible Man would probably be my second fav. I do love them all though, and I quite like the Mummy films after the first.

    The Monster. He was the most facsinating monster out of all of them, maybe because he was the most human. Also, all of the Universal and Hammer Frankenstein films are the best of their respective sub-genres.

    I prefer HAMMER´s Dracula, so I choose Frankenstein.

    Dracula may not be the goriest, but in almost all films he kicks ass! Besides isn't it cool to be attracted to your killer? Oh I think so...Bram Stokers Dracula...mmmmm

    Frankenstein was played by Boris Karloff, Lon Cheney, Jr, Glenn Strange and Bela Lugosi
    Dracula was played by Bela Lugosi, John Carradine, and Lon Cheney Jr.
    The Wolfman was played by Lon Cheney Jr.
    (Doesn't Lon Cheney rule?) I vote for The Wolfman because he's the one with the best continuity.

    I went with Dracula, but all the monsters are classics.

    Having watched most of them again recently (with the release of the Legacy box), I'm still going with Frankenstein's monster. After all - deep inside, he's just a big softie.

    Wolfman was a close second. I'm not sure whether it was Chaney Jr's portrayal, or the film itself, but it really gets you in.

    Lugosi's Dracula is iconic, but the first film is really nothing more than a filmed stage play when you think about it, and quite dull. The Spanish version on the Legacy disc really does what cinema is supposed to do - i.e. uses the medium of film!

    Frankenstein. Either the films were genius artistically or absolutey ridiculas. Either way it was the most entertaining series out of all of Universal efforts.
