‘Monster Mash’ Musical Coming from Universal Studios

Like a Halloween rave, Monster Mash has been a smash hit single since Halloween 1962 when Bobby “Boris” Pickett first released the full-length LP called The Original Monster Mash, and now with the resurgence of the classic monster films, Universal Studios has given the green light to Matt Stawski to direct a musical based on the song from a screenplay by Will Widger according to Deadline.

Details though are scarce at this time on if the film will tie into Universal’s reworked Dark Universe or if it will be a standalone project.

With Stawski at the helm it’s sure to be a musical blast with his extensive portfolio of Grammy-nominated music video work.

For now, we can look forward to Universal’s The Invisible Man set for release on February 28!

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
