Hammer Glamour

Ingrid Pitt
November 21, 1937 – November 23, 2010

The Vampire Lovers is actually part of a trilogy, based on the novella Carmilla (1872)

It was followed by Lust for a Vampire (1971) and Twins of Evil (1972)
[They aren't available on disc, but you can watch both on YouTube.]

There's a vampiress from the same family in Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (1974) as well.

Ingrid is only in the first film, but they all feature beautiful (and often bare!) babes.

Which is one of the things Hammer horror films were known for.

Fangs for the mammaries!

Clucks & Yucks!

Freddy is my favorite chef,
cause with him there's no need to break out the electric knife!

Below are two cinematic turkeys for you to feast on:

Blood Freak (1972)
Thankskilling (2009)
[I DO NOT recommend buying this turkey.
Try finding it free, for a good laugh. :]

The Birds

I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock's films,
especially The Birds (1963)

I actually just recently bought The Birds Barbie!

[Fear Fact: Tippi Hedren also starred in Hitchcock's lesser-known film Marnie (1964)]

And I'm planning to attempt these nail designs soon...

Zombie Poetry

Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun

Will we behave in the grave,
Or will we rise to have a zombie rave?

In life we must stick to our guns,
No sex, no liquor,
We don't want to bust our ticker,
But when life is finally through,
We learn there's still lots of living to do

Only ghouls have fun,
They fornicate and feast till the day is done,
They ooze, (quite literally), tons of fun

Ghouls just wanna have fun
Whether a barbeque or luncheon,
On brains they will be munchin'
Ghouls just wanna have fun,
(They just wanna, they just wanna..)

They had their time to live,
Now it's time to have some fun,
Before they go head to head with a shotgun.

Creepy Dolls!

Day Of The Dead Doll

My latest creation, a sugar skull mask.
Worn by my dear doll, Violet.

Heavily inspired by Bastet2329's Creepy Dolls ♥
Now I'll end this entry with a fitting song/vid...

Rare Romero

George A. Romero's film about a helper monkey.
She's not a zombie monkey, but does kill people! Anyone who annoys her owner. Nice, eh? Not so nice when she gets jealous and attacks his girlfriend though!
I won't spoil anymore. Buy the DVD through the link above, or watch it for free here!
Below are Romero's other lesser-known fright flicks:

Martin (1976)

Dine with the Dead

Actually, ON the dead!

Aside from Sugar Skulls,
the traditional treat to eat today are Soul Cakes.

Made for All Saints' Day or All Souls' Day to celebrate the dead.
Each cake eaten represents a soul being freed from Purgatory.

They were given out to "soulers" (usually children) who went from door to door calling out words such as those in the song A Soalin' by Peter, Paul and Mary:

"Soal, a soal, a soal cake, please good missus a soul cake,
An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry,
Any good thing to make us all merry,
One for Peter, two for Paul, three for Him who made us all."

A recipe for the cakes and iced pumpkin juice is located here!
