32 Days of Halloween II, Day 4: Time For Some Fights

Frankenstein Conquers the World

Looking at what we were watching this time last year, the Dracula vs. Frankenstein trailer, I thought we could take a look at some horror bits that include fights. Because when you’ve got great creatures, you might as well make them smack one another. Right?

Case in point: Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man. Lon Chaney Jr. is back as the Wolf Man, but it’s Bela Lugosi and not Karloff who’s the monster. This is available as part of that Wolf Man Legacy Series DVD I told you to pick up. It’s good eating.

And because you’ve always wondered what would have happened in an Amalgam-like universe where the Brothers Shaw combined with the Brothers Raimi: Shaolin vs. Evil Dead. Here we have the trailers for both it and the sequel.

I barely understand what’s happening in this–but just like Close Encounters of the Spooky Kind, it’s probably for the best.

It’s available on DVD from Tai Seng.

And while I was looking for additional “vs.” type trailers, I ran across this under the title Frankenstein vs. Baragon, but it’s here known by its American title, Frankenstein Conquers the World. It’s a big fight. And it’s so amazingly whacked out looking, how could I not share it with you?

And that madness is on DVD from Tokyo Shock.


  • Um…me? What have you got against Bela? I mean, you’re welcome to have something against him, I’m just wondering what and why…

  • White Zombie. He made about 12 films before he came to the U.S. in Hungary. He was indeed a fine actor but it was through type casting that doomed him.
    So , there are people who do care for Lugosi.

  • The thing I find interesting is that Lugosi was over 6 foot. I thought he was short. I guess because he seemed broader than Karloff

  • Aww, now White Zombie’s good for what it is. Which is not very good, admittedly. But just from a historical perspective, it must be given some respect.

  • Oh. I did not mean to dis WZ. I was editing some text and some how that got left there out in space. I like this film. It was an early indie film for that era and from some of my readings Bela actually directed some scenes.
