Your Monster Hunter team?

During the tribute to Manos, Jonah and the Bots drafted ‘monster hunter’ teams.

The question is, who would you draft, if you could draft a team of monster hunters? Let’s limit it to 5 picks. (And, you know, it might be fun to do a fantasy football style draft for this on the forum).

My Fearsome Fivesome

kolchak

Carl Kolchak, the Night Stalker
Because I loved the show and the character, and because you need a regular guy who gets things done - he’s an investigative reporter, and has a nose for uncovering secrets.

Milla Jovovich as Alice
Because she kicks-ass, especially as Alice in 3D in the Resident Evil series. She gives us athleticism, strategy and a full arsenal to help combat our monsters.

captain-kronos

Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter
I figure once we get far into the draft, heavy hitters like Van Helsing will be out of the running, however, if you dig deep enough, you can find able replacements. Plus, I’m a Hammer fan, and he comes with some helpful assistants.

Hellboy
I doubt I can get Milla and Hellboy in the same draft, but I can dream. We need a monster to fight monsters. He’s strong and well trained in supernatural and demonic combat.

Elsa Bloodstone
The daughter of Ulysses, she was born to fight monsters. Elsa was in Nextwave, and she’s cooler than her pops, so she’s on the team.

Hunters in reserve: Bloody Mallory, Warrior Nun, Ash

Yours?

Ohh, some good choices in here. Especially Kolchak and Kronos.

I think I’d have to go with Gonzo the Great, Shaggy and Scooby, and Daffy Duck. We’d have a great time.

Not sure I’d take him unless the “monsters” you’re fighting are swarthy foreigners.

My monster hunter team would be five individual Harry Dean Stantons.

Plus, she recorded one of the most underrated albums of all time. And she’s Ukrainian. She’s in!

I’m going to go with

Simon Belmont: because let’s face it he’s got over thirty years experience

Chris Redfield: zombies? Mutants? No problem

Wolverine: not afraid to get his claws dirty

Van Helsing (Hammer horror): this guy has staked out the situation many times

Rowsdower: I mean c’mon it’s Rowsdower! He brings the beer :beers:

Using Peter Cushing is almost like cheating. Put him, Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price on a team and there’s nothing you can’t stop.

Except a so-so script.

My first choice would be Santo, Santo, he’s my man! If he can’t do it no one can!

Then the Ghost Busters. Not those guys. These guys

Vincent Price, Witchfinder General (also has experience battling zombies)

Honorable mention to Abbott & Costello who successfully went up against the Mummy, Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, Dracula, the Wolf Man and the Invisible Man

Oh yeah, can’t forget that Santo was a monster fighter, nice one.

And my inner kid thanks you for Abbott & Costello

As for Christopher Lee, he often played the baddie - the hunted rather than the hunter, but there are exceptions. One of my favorite Lee heroes was Duc de Richleau in The Devil Rides Out

He’d be a welcome addition to any team.

Found this article on the Nerdist

As for Hammer, who would be on the All-Hammer Squad?

Van Helsing of course, de Richleau, and Kronos were mentioned… Quatermass, sure. But who’d be the 5th?

Holmes and Watson (from their version of Baskervilles) would be great, or maybe occult novelist John Verney (To the Devil a Daughter). I’d also suggest Professor Zimmer, Father Sandor, and Sir James Forbes as candidates.

For mine, I’ll go with Trip Jones from Monster Hunter International, Father Lankester Merrin from The Exorcist, and Zoey Samaras from the Arkham Horror series. See if you can guess the common connection.
