In my short time as an entertainment writer and blogger, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many of my childhood icons. Legends I grew up rushing home after school to watch on TV and gawked at in wonder on the silver screen. Not everyone in the world can say they’ve met Captain James T. Kirk, Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Darth Vader, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and so many others I can’t even remember. One of the most memorable encounters was with the man who brought Mr. Spock to life – Leonard Nimoy.

When I was a kid I loved the monster mash ups that Universal made during the end of their run of classic monster movies. In fact the very first Universal Monster movie I ever got to see was House Of Dracula, which featured Lon Chaney’s Wolfman, John Carradine’s Dracula, Glenn Strange’s version of Frankenstein’s Monster plus a mad scientist and a hunchbacked nurse.
Many times over the years those classic monsters have been put through their paces in one form or another, in different configurations. Film makers as diverse as Paul Naschy, Jess Franco, Al Adamson and Ed Wood have thrown together two or more of the classic monsters from Hollywood’s golden age, usually to mixed results. The ultimate monster mash up, in my opinion, is Fred Dekker’s Monster Squad, one of my favorite movies of all time.

That's precisely what artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros has done with his latest set of parodies, which pit Disney princesses and other favorites from the Mouse House brand against horror film icons and at least two baddies from Batman movies. Most of these are really perfect, such as the above image of Freddy Krueger and Princess Aurora, hinting that the leading lady of Sleeping Beauty might not get to ever wake up, even with a kiss from her prince. Then there's the obvious combo of Little Mermaid's Ariel and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. We're not sure...
