The Bride (1985)
IE--the bride of Frankenstein. I'm overly fond of this version, myself. Doesn't hurt that several of the actors are people I adore.

People who added this item 3611 Average listal rating (2386 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.4
The Mummy is back.
Elfflame's rating:
This one actually includes Vampires, ghosts, and witches. I think there's a mummy, as well. Not to mention Jack Skellington. :)
Elfflame's rating:
Not sure if the pirates here count as zombies or ghosts or something else, but I definitely think they count as "undead."

Elfflame's rating:
People who added this item 3599 Average listal rating (2461 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Van Helsing (2004)
Let's see...Dracula, his brides, Werewolves, the Monster of Frankenstein...anything I missed?
Elfflame's rating:

Ghosts, Vampires, Mummies, Werewolves, Zombies, and even Witches.

I'm being a bit selective here, because there are some "good" or "happy" ghost stories I'm not putting in here, and I'm not including "creature" monsters, either. And none of the movies on this list are ones I rated less than 3 stars.
