Read This/ Watch That: We are Monsters Edition

Read This:

Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron
Boy's life is filled with monsters. He spends his days working with his dad, Frankenstein's monster and his mom, The Bride. The theater is filled with creatures and supernatural beings, but Boy longs for something more.

When trying to create his own AI companion goes wrong, Boy has to set off on a cross-country road trip with more characters from many nightmares.

But it's not all terrifying, Boy is just, well, a teenage boy trying to figure out his place in the world and maybe find a girlfriend at the same time.

Like many other teenagers, we think Boy would enjoy the following movie, accompanied with a large popcorn and a midnight showing:

Watch That:
Young Frankenstein (PG)

When Frederick Frankenstein arrives at his grandfather's estate in Transylvania, he finds that it's pretty much just as his grandad left it. Complete with a servant named Igor and a book of unfinished experiments.

Of course... messing around with these goes just about as well as you'd expect... to hilarious results.

Check this out today and find out why people call this one of the best comedies of all time.
