Coincidentally...I'm amazed that no one chose to blog about this Corman classic. I mean...it was even on MST3K!!
This time around there are only two rules requirements to this blogathon....
1) The film must be from 1950-1959.
2) The film must be centered around a MONSTER!!
Oh...and did I mention that this time around...the film can be from ANY COUNTRY??
Also, in this blogathon, the definition of "monster" will be relatively liberal. A monster can be anything from a hideous creature to an alien to a robot.
And, of course, monsters include deformed or mutated humans.
Now...some of you may be thinking that monster movies aren't worth your time...that monster movies were never good.
You'd be WRONG.
Check and mate.
Monster movies in the 50s were some of the most interpretively rich in film history. Monsters represented everything from fears concerning Communism...
...to...whatever the hell this is.
If any of you have doubts about the genre, let me know and I will GLADLY give you suggestions of great films that you can watch.
People were curious if it would take place in either July or August. So...both! This blogathon will take place from July 27-August 3. That gives us about 5 weeks to recruit bloggers, watch movies, and write.
I want to personally ask all of you to participate again in this great endeavor. Also...let's set a new goal for participants. This past blogathon we got 21 participants...this time...let's aim for 40!
I want all of you to contact your blogger friends or people who you think might be interested and ask them to participate. Together...we CAN do this!
In the following week, I will post the official blogathon banner that you can all post on your sites.
And to answer your questions...yes...there will be awards...and prizes.
And of course...MORE prizes!!
Also...because I'll be attending a new school, my email has changed. If you are interested, or have questions or suggestions, post a comment here or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well folks...we have 5 weeks...let's make this the best blogathon YET!!!!
