  1. Nate,
    Have I been tossed out already? I already signed up for a film.

  2. The line-up looks good so far. Hopefully we will reach our goal of 40!
    Also you can put my blog link next to my name now.

  3. I'm so sorry, Page! What film did you pick?

  4. Attack of the 50 Foot Woman
    No problem. : )

  5. Put me down for The Thing from Another World.

  6. Sure thing! Which site should I put you down for?

  7. Oh shoot...it looks like Team Bartilucci has already chosen that one...care to pick another? We'd love to have you contribute!

  8. Nate, we of Team Bartilucci thank you for agreeing to let us do a MOTHRA/THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD double-feature over at TALES OF THE EASILY DISTRACTED for the Monster-thon! Mr. Gable, we're sorry to disappoint you, but on the bright side, there are still plenty of memorable monster movies to choose from -- more monster movies than there are stars in the heavens, to paraphrase the old MGM line! :-)

  9. Can I offer up a review for Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla? Count me in!

  10. Sorry, I didnt realize reviews were supposed to be from the 50s, hows about Gihdorah: The Three Headed Monster then?

  11. Oh wait, that one isnt that old either....um, I'll thing of something and get back to ya.

  12. Okay, I got it, I'll do one for War of the Worlds (1953), does that work for you Nathanael?

  13. Nathanael: you were inspiring, I'm doing my own (some months ahead). Check it out! (maybe not your cup of tea, but still) :)

  14. @The Film Connoisseur

    That's fine, my friend! Looking forward to it!

  15. Nathaneal:
    Can't find your email, but this is Hal of THE HORN SECTION blogspot and I'd love to participate. Any films from the Forrest Tucker Monster trilogy (ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN, CRAWLING EYE, COSMIC MONSTERS); my first choice would be CRAWLING EYE if no one has taken it.

  16. I'm totally interested in this. Give me, I dunno, It Came from Outer Space, maybe? Or It! The Terror from Beyond Space? Or Quatermass 2? Those would be my first choices.

  17. @Hal

    Ah! Crawling Eye! A true classic! Sure thing, it's yours! Thank you SO much for wanting to participate!

  18. @Vulnavia Morbius

    It Came From Outer Space has your name on it! Thanks for joining our blogathon! By the way...which blog do you want to participate with? I see two blogs under your blogger profile.

  19. Hola.

    Thanks for your comment at Apocalypse Later, Nate. I'd be happy to chip one in for you. Feel free to post The Cyclops if you want or if you want one not already on my site, how about The Black Scorpion, also from 1957? It's written and ready to go. Just let me know what and how and where.

    A Different Hal

  20. @Nathanael: Many thanks and looking forward to my very first blogathon.

  21. @Hal

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy holding them!

  22. Hi, Nathaneal. My main blog is Krell Laboratories. That's where I'll do the writing.

  23. Many thanks! I just needed to know where you were gonna post your article.

  24. Supposed to be... on break... in July... Must... resist...

    Alright, I give up. You got me. It just sounds TOO fun. Please sign me up for 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957).

  25. This looks like a lot of fun!

    I need to go home and see what I have readily available for me to watch. I have the Hammer Dracula film, but already reviewed that for something else. I think I have Attack of the Giant Leeches somewhere I am sure.

    I'll find something good.

    Can we watch more than one movie?

  26. Caroline

    One of us! One of us! One of us!

  27. Tim Brannan

    Since Team Bartilucci is doing two, I see no reason why you can't do more than one as well.

  28. I would like to join up. Can I do Fiend Without a Face?

  29. Certainly! I'm thrilled that you want to participate! Also, I'm very happy that you are choosing "Fiend Without a Face." That's one of my all-time favorite monster films. I was afraid that nobody would take it!

  30. I'm looking forward to it!

  31. Hi. I'd like to do Corman's NOT OF THIS EARTH at my blog, BoilingSand.

  32. Hi Doug! Thanks for wanting to participate! The film is all yours!

  33. Hi, if it's not too late, I'd like to write about 'It Came From Beneath The Sea.'


  34. It's never too late! Thanks for wanting to participate!

  35. OK. Please put me down for "The Screaming Skull" from 1958.
