Random Bits of Fright and F@$kery, 2009 Edition

I've got some real goodies in the offing if I may say so, kids, but none are close enough to completion to finish rapidly. Included are retrospectives on everything from a stately Universal classic to one of the best overlooked zombie flicks of the last twenty years. But they're gonna have to wait.

The relentlessness of this weekend (Relaxation...Wuzzat?) prohibits me from being able to pour much time into this here entry, so I will openly cop out and give you a visual tour of some horror highlights, courtesy of YouTube...

Not totally sold on the charms of The Incredible Melting Man after the rave in this here corner of the Blogosphere? Mayhaps this trailer will convince you...



...And if you're looking to replicate my Parkland Theater experience in microcosm, you should thrill to this trailer for the very entertaining Without Warning, Melting Man's partner in double-feature crime.



Enjoy this trailer for The Pit and the Pendulum, a Roger Corman Poe classic..."Nicholas...NICholas..."



One in-depth Petri Dish piece in the works involves the Knights Templar zombie movies from Amando De Ossorio. They made their way to US drive-ins in the seventies, and Blue Underground's lovingly assembled a beautiful box set in their homage. Here's a trailer from one of the best, Return of the Evil Dead...



Don't know who Paul Naschy is? Get thee to this Horrorpalooza archival link for some schoolin', and then enjoy this trailer for The Werewolf vs. the Vampire Woman (aka Werewolf Shadow)...



Gotta run. A live rock show waits to be reviewed. But tomorrow, the monsters will return!!
