TOP 10 UNIVERSAL MONSTERS.

This list is about the 10 best and most scary monsters. Universal studios has, since the 1920s, produced numerous creatures, monsters and phantoms. Not only amazing monsters, but also some pretty awesome performances from actors such as Boris Karloff, Bela Logusi, Claude Rains, Lon Chaney and his son. Not only is this list focused on appearance, but also performance.

It Came from Outer Space 1953







   It came from outer space is an original sci-fi 3D film, the creature attacking the people of Earth is really frightening with its big scary eye – and that eye is huge! I think it’s a really underrated film, and should be praised more like Creature from the Black Lagoon.    The movie centers around the author and amateur astronomer John Putnam (Richard Carlson) and his woman Ellen Fields (Barbara Rush) as they witness a meteorite crash-land near Sand Rock, Arizona. Putnam is quick to believe that it’s a space craft that has landed on Earth, but Fields is skeptical about it.    Putnam is pr…

PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BROWNIES!

This recipe comes from www.penniesonaplatter.com .  This time of the year desserts must have some pumpkin in them.  So how about some brownies?





A few weeks ago, Ben and I started leading the college group at church.  To start things out right, I decided to bring a batch of these brownies to one of our first Bible studies.  It was a busy day, so I had to put something together quickly.  In fact, I made two batches because they are so easy to whip up!


The college students inhaled these, which was indicative that this recipe is a keeper.  I’ll probably make these a few more times before the season is over, and maybe switch up the mix in’s.  How about some cinnamon chips or white chocolate?  Maybe even a topping of sorts?

HISTORY OF TRICK R' TREATING!

Trick-or-treating—going from house to house in search of candy and other goodies—has been a popular Halloween tradition in the United States and other countries for an estimated 100 years. But the origins of this community-based ritual, which costumed children typically savor while their cavity-conscious parents grudgingly tag along, remain hazy. Possible forerunners to modern-day trick-or-treating have been identified in ancient Celtic festivals, early Roman Catholic holidays, medieval practices and even British politics.



Ancient Origins of Trick-or-Treating
   Halloween has its roots in the ancient, pre-Christian Celtic festival of Samhain, which was celebrated on the night of October 31. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, believed that the dead returned to earth on Samhain. People would gather to light bonfires, offer sacrifices and pay homage to the deceased.    During some Celtic celebrations of Samhain, v…
