Standing in line to see Night of the Living Dead (1968)

The movie that started it all, made in and premiering in my hometown at Pittsburgh’s Fulton Theater (which has since been renovated into the Byham Theater).
During its tenure as a downtown arthouse theater (late-70s to early-1990s), I saw many first-run independent films at the Fulton, and they were yearly hosts to the Pittsburgh Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.

Rancid: “Time Bomb”

The most ear-wormy song from the 90s punk movement. Just try not to sing along to the chorus!

"Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac, yeah… the boy’s a time bomb"

THE BLACK CAT [1934]

Come, Vitus. Are we men or are we children? Of what use are all these melodramatic gestures? You say your soul was killed, that you have been dead all these years. And what of me? Did we not both die here in Marmorus fifteen years ago? Are we any less victims of the war than those who bodies were torn asunder? Are we not both the living dead? And now you come to me, playing at being an avenging angel, childishly thirsting for my blood. We understand each other too well. We know too much of life. We shall play a little game, Vitus. A game of death, if you like.

An absolute masterpiece of the genre.

Countdown to HalloweenThe Black Cat (1934)

Are we not both the living dead? And now you come to me, playing at being an avenging angel, childishly thirsting for my blood. We understand each other too well. We know too much of life. We shall play a little game, Vitus. A game of death, if you like…

An absolute masterpiece of the genre.

Weegee (Arthur Fellig), Untitled (In the Movie House Watching House on Haunted Hill), 1959.


Look how much fun these people are having! That’s exactly the mood you want to be in when watching William Castle movies. Especially Haunted HIll!

William Castle was the king of the scary-movie gimmick, flying skeletons out over the audience (during screenings of House on Haunted Hill) or wiring random seats in the auditorium to give unsuspecting attendees a mild electric jolt (for screenings of The Tingler). I’d have loved to experience this!

Eyes wide shut

Though it was bashed by most critics and hated by the public, I happen to love this film.
