MeTV’s Svengoolie, Rich Koz, offers his insights on classic monsters and their levels of fear and danger in an exclusive video for the lead-up to Halloween. In the video, Svengoolie shares his thoughts on the Mummy, Wolf Man, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Gil-Man, revealing which monster he would be most afraid of. According to Svengoolie, the Wolf Man takes the top spot due to his wild animal nature and lack of logic. He then chooses Dracula as the second most fearsome monster, citing his hypnotic power and the slim chance of defeating him before he drains one’s blood.
Interestingly, Svengoolie is not concerned about the Mummy, joking that she easily overtakes him in every movie, dragging one leg slowly. Regarding Gil-Man and Frankenstein, he believes Gil-Man can be controlled as long as he is kept out of the water, making him feeble. As for Frankenstein, Svengoolie suggests befriending this monster. To find out why, watch the full video.
In addition to his insights, MeTV is currently hosting the second annual “Svengoolie’s Halloween BOOnanza,” a month-long celebration featuring spooky and entertaining classic TV shows for the whole family.
