A New Monster of a Poll: Pick Your Favourite Universal Monster

Hey kids! I has been some time since we last had a poll here at All Things Kevyn. There was the Oscar Poll in Jan/Feb, but that's an annual thing. You have to delve back to pre-X-Mas to find the Walking Dead Poll. But not to worry poll lovers, because it's back, baby! And this is a monster of a poll. Ha! We've done polls on the best Star Trek Captain. We've done polls on classic (and semi-classic) Marvel superhero teams. Polls on Beatles albums, Star Wars characters, and Scorsese and Tarantino films. Now we are traveling in our way back machine, to take a look at those classic Universal Monsters. Which one do you like best?

You have eight official Universal Monsters from which to choose. These are the big eight. The elite eight, to put it into March Madness terms. These are the pantheon of monsters. You know who they are. Count Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Wolfman, The Mummy, The Phantom of the Opera, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. These are the official Universal Monsters, and your job, here and now, is to decide which one is your favourite. Which one thrills or scares or excites you the most. All you need do is go to the poll, found oh so conveniently near the top of this here blog's sidebar, click on your choice, and vote away. Yup, it's that easy peazy. And after doing that, why not come back over here, and leave a comment or two about your fave (or least fave) Universal Monster...or anything else ya'll might wanna talk about. And please feel free to go ahead and tell every dang person ya know about this poll. It's a-gonna run until midnight on May 11th (with results posted here on May 12th) and we wanna get as many votes as we can during that six-and-a-half wee spread. Remember, vote early and vote often. Ha! Anyhoo, glad to have ya'll here. Now get on over there and vote vote vote! That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.


  1. Oh this is a tough one as I love them all. I have to go with Lon Chaney though. His character you actually do wish survived. I like to forget the 1940 version and the Herbert Lom version. I love Calude rains also and Elsa never looked more fetching
