Well, now it that it looks like the Disney/Fox merger is likely to happen (barring it being blocked), let’s look at some of the horror properties Disney could turn into franchises now.
It says something about how sniffy Hollywood moguls were about horror that while they felt compelled to trot one out now and again due to Universal’s massive success with the genre, the efforts were usual quite half-hearted. None more so than Fox’s Undying Monster, basically a gothic mystery film with about 15 seconds of werewolf ‘action’ at the end. (On on the highly tepid poster, he looks more like a hobo.)
Still, it gives Disney a starting piece with which to begin challenging Universal’s massively popular Dark Universe, and so don’t be…what? Sorry, folks, just a second.
Oh. I’ve been informed Unversal’s Dark Universe is not actually considered massively popular. Never mind.
