Girls ‘N’ Ghouls – The Movie Monster Obsession With Carrying Off Women


Remembering the classic days when a movie monster wasn’t a monster at all unless he was carrying an unconscious woman.

You’ve got to feel sorry for the movie monster. There he is, on a murderous and bloody rampage, when yet another delicate lady faints during all the excitement. Call the monster a beast if you will, but never let it be said that he is not chivalrous – you can always rely on him to scoop the poor woman up and carry her off, even mid-rampage.

Here are just a few stills, posters and book covers featuring this most iconic of movie moments – often featuring moments that were noticeably absent from the actual film.
