Mocha Monster Double Feature

Once again the Eastern seaboard and Midwest are covered in the white stuff-and heading into single digit temperature - making everything look so pretty. Best to hide at home this Saturday afternoon and relive our favorite Monster Double Feature (which boyfriend says was really two different shows, Chiller Movies & Sir Graves Ghastly, but I'm remembering it as a double feature) - So heat up that Espresso Machine, build yourself a Double Shot Cafe Mocha with a huge bowl of kettle corn to share, invite a few friends to ski over, throw something in the slow cooker and cuddle up on the couch.

Monster Movie Double Feature 

"The Tingler" (1959) - My favorite, favorite bad creepy movie. Vincent Price is pricelessly innocent as the Doctor who can't make you scream. 
"Island of Terror" (1966) - Peter Cushing builds suspense as human bones are liquefied...


"Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman" (1958) - If only the movie were as brilliant as the poster.....still very worth watching for its camp and girl power! 
"Blood of Dracula" (1957) - The era of experimentation and female education go a little bit awry .....

But then could do: 

"King Kong" (1933) - This is the only version of King Kong worth watching- If you are in the generation only exposed to the Peter Jackson film- erase that from your mind with some meditation or brain washing similar to "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" so that you are free to appreciate an almost perfect film. No offensive to Mr. Jackson's attempt but some films should be left alone.

"Mighty Joe Young" (1949) - Should I just say, Ray Harryhausen?
