Some little kids are visited by their favorite superheroes or Disney princesses while sick in the hospital. And that’s a wonderful thing. But there’s one little girl in Scotland named Scarlett, who has
My little girl has been in hospital for a few days now and as a few of you know if you follow me, she LOVES Frankenstein. Well, she got a get well video from her Big Best Monster Pal.

Scarlett was extremely happy that her two favorite monsters made this special “get well soon” message for her, that her dad made a video for them in return, which showed how she was practically bursting at the seems with excitement. Now, Scarlett has a pretty thick Scottish accent, but some things just transcend words. Maybe in a few years when Scarlett is a wee bit older, she can visit her best friends in person when Universal’s Epic Universe theme park opens. It will contain an entire Universal Monsters themed land, so she’ll be able to meet her faves face to face at last. Just no one tell her she’ll have to wait three years before it opens! Hopefully she won’t have moved on to Freddy and Jason by then.
It’s amazing to see that even ninety years later, the classic Universal Monsters are still making new fans. As old as those films are, they still have a special quality to them that pulls viewers into their eerie and atmospheric world. Hopefully, one of these days Universal will figure out how to properly bring those classic movie icons to life again for a whole new generation. In the meantime, the old films clearly find new ways to connect with the even the youngest audience. And that’s a pretty fantastic legacy.
