To celebrate the release of Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man, it’s a monster movie battle royale for The Take this week. We’ll be talkin’ the Dark Universe and going to war over what is the better film: 1999’s The Mummy or James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein.
First up host Blake Howard exhumes the corpse of the monster franchise that almost was, Dark Universe, with writer and political commentator JR Hennessy. Blake and JR discuss how a photo caused a stir that bloomed into outrage and eventually led to the cancellation of a star-studded franchise.
This week’s Duel of Takes (20:17) is a battle between films and monsters Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and The Mummy (1999).
In this kangaroo court room Blake again relinquishes the judge gavel to the editor of Flicks.com.au, Luke Buckmaster. Defending the mother of all monsters – The Bride – is movie podcaster extraordinaire behind the incredible Finding Drago, Total Reboot and Mike Check Podcast, Alexei Toliopoulos. Prosecuting for The Mummy is the host of The Take, Blake Howard.
It’s time for justice for all. Even monsters.
