My Favorite Mutant Monster Movies

Speaking of mutations, a recent bout with Covid has been keeping me down, so I wasn’t able to write a proper movie post this month. I may still sneak one in.

Just trust me, this is a great list of the best mutant monster movies you’ll find on streaming.πŸ‘ΎπŸ•·β˜’οΈ

Haiku of the Week

Leviathan was a giant sea serpent from biblio and mythical times. Referenced in several texts across many different cultures, leviathan represents chaos and destruction. In Christianity, it’s considered the demon of deadly sin, who was eventually slayed by god. Our theme this month is creatures of the deep.

Haiku of the Week

Our theme this month is creatures of the deep. I spent the weekend watching sea creature movies and lamenting over the fact, that despite now having the technology, we still do not have an awesome modern-day Kraken movie. What up Mr. Speilberg, are you busy?
