Greetings, Groovy Ghoulies! If you get anything in the mail that looks like it’s a little drummer necklace, get rid of it quickly! You may have just received the “Drums of Jeopardy”. This film was released in 1931 and directed by George B. Seitz. Was this a film to leave you quaking in your boots?
What is the law, Groovy Ghoulies? If you know, then you have visited the fog-encrusted Island of Lost Souls. If you don’t know, this is a movie worth checking out. Paramount Pictures released this film in 1932 and it is based on the book, “The Island of Dr. Moreau” by H.G. Wells. An author we will revisit a few times more. I think the studios were really starting to get the hang of these kinds of movies with this great film.
Greeting Groovy Ghoulies! While the old projector was out for repair, I was going through some old boxes here in the crypt. And I came across a little treasure trove. It was a box filled with all kinds of goodies from my childhood. Along with my love of movies, comics, writing, drawing and reading were some of my favorite pastimes. And what a treat to find some books that fueled my imagination way back then. Let’s take a look and see if there’s anything you remember…
April was crazy with birthday parties, Easter, and then the Boston ComicCon at the end of the month, which is why this next installment has taken so long. The beauty of the BCC was that almost everyone was from the area, and we all fondly reminisced about Creature Double Feature, Feep, Simon’s Sanctorum, Chiller and the other great horror programs of the past. Many fans and I talked about how cool Channel 56 and 38 used to be, before they became UPN, WB and the CW. Back then, the local stations cared about the audience and eagerly accepted input from the local fanbase.
