When these two films come up in conversation they are usually spoken with reverant tones of almost superstitious awe. Universal was the undisputed champeen of this tourney and I highly suspect the two films that weren't from that much revered company (Hammer's The Mummy and AIP's The Abominable Dr. Phibes) are going to fall victim to the Classic Monsters most likely in this round, but we'll see. ;)

Like I stated before, these two iconic films that are in the first bout have been immortalized by the teeming masses and rightfully so. No explanation is needed, so get in here and vote for either Dr. Frankenstein's monstrous creation or the Lord of Vampires, because the Universal Monster's elite have once again invaded Unpleasant Street!

As incredible as Frankenstein is, my personal preference has always been Dracula. I just likes my vampires. Can't help myself.

Bela is Dracula. This I have alvays said. But I believe I take nothing avay from the greatest Dracula of them all when I cast my lot with Karloff.

Those who know me know that Frankenstein is my favourite monster movie (just ahead of Jaws and King King). It was a perfect portrayal by Karloff of a sympathy-inducing yet terrifying creature we like to call "The Monster".

Frankenstein is probably one of the ten best films of all time, and I must admit that, for all it's atmosphere, Dracula creeps in places.

I went with Drac.
No real reason, other than I had to pick one of them. Lets be honest, you can't go wrong with either.:cool:

Plus, Dwight Frye rocks.:D

Really tough decision for me as I kind of think they're both great in their own way. Flipped a coin and Frankenstein won.

This is the very problem I have with the film. There was also too much humor, whether intentional or not and I just didn't think it really fit with the overall tale. Frankenstein, however, far surpassed it's book and that is a rarity. Karloff and company get my vote.

Holy ****! A tie, and this late in the week! It was time for the mid-week warning, but it looks like such will not be necessary this time. Well...it looks like it was inadvertantly done. :D

Since I have a full schedule going on tomorrow, I'm calling this tonight. It's a tie and after a best two out of three coin toss, I'm awarding this round to the Prince of Darkness himself, Dracula. Sorry, Boris. :(

That ends this round and we move onto the second match in the quarter finals...
