Welcome back to the Cinema Junkie podcast, I’m Beth Accomando. Today’s podcast was recorded earlier this year when the Film Geeks at the Digital Gym Cinema launched the Universal Suspects film series. The film series is billed as 40 monsters, 31 movies, 12 months and no escape. We are in the second half of the series and this weekend Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy and the Mummy’s Ghost will screen on Sunday at 1pm at the Digital Gym. But back in January I convened a geek roundtable with my partner in crime and fellow film geek Miguel Rodriguez. Miguel and I both volunteer as programmers with the Film Geeks at the Digital Gym cinema and for our first yearlong film series we went with our hearts and programed the complete collection of classic Universal monster films. So here is our discussion of everything from Dracula to the Creature from the Black Lagoon. So hope you’ll enjoy listening to us geek out about movie monsters!

Thanks for listening to the KPBS Cinema Junkie podcast. I’m Beth Accomando. You can catch The Universal Suspects one Sunday a month at the Digital Gym Cinema. This Sunday with be a pair of Mummy films and the series will close out with a triple feature of Creature from the Black Lagoon films on Dec 13.

Check back every Thursday for new film reviews and every Friday for interviews. You can follow me on Twitter @cinebeth and like the cinema junkie facebook page. And since the podcast is new, we’d love some reviews on iTunes.
