One Scream Wonders

(Yes, I'm late, as usual. *Hangs head*)
I present two of the most influential scream queens.
(Despite them starring in only one major horror film.)

Elsa Lanchester as the bride in Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

As my blogger buddy Bleaux Leaux said, given her very limited screen time,
a case could be made that the Bride of Frankenstein left the most indelible impression.

So true. Her image/likeness still graces a plethora of products.
Including my bootiful new bride necklace!

Made by C.A.B. Fayre
(Which I won in a giveaway,
along with the latest issue of Creepy Queen Magazine. :)
Janet Leigh as Marion Crane in Psycho (1960)
Two words: Shower scene.
Still making us uneasy while showering in motels,
and being immortalized, in plastic!
Psycho Doll by Madame Alexander
(Sadly it's no longer for sale on her site.
I'm hoping it'll turn up on eBay soon!)
Janet also gave the world my favorite scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis.
(Who she appeared with in The Fog (1980) and Halloween H20 (1998))

"Women are born with horror in their very bloodstream.
It is a biological thing."
- Bela Lugosi

Fellow females, want to be Scream Queen for a Day?

Here's all you have to do:

1. Print and cut out this crown made by Halloween Blues
 2. Punch two holes at the end of it
3. Tie it together with string
4. Place it on your head
5. Scream!!!!

For Fellow Freddy Fanatics

Freddy's Nightmares is another anthology series I'd like to see.

But it doesn't seem to be available on DVD in the US, sadly.

I own all of the Nightmare on Elm Street films on DVD now though.
(Except for the wretched remake.)

I've been rewatching them recently.
I watched Freddy's Dead last. New Nightmare is next.
Then I'll watch Freddy VS. Jason,
(which I've never seen, surprisingly.)

Anyway, this has led me to make a list of items,
(in no particular order)
to show Freddy Krueger is still alive and slashing!

Awesome tribute to the man who made the monster,
by my new friend and fellow horror blogger, Nicole.

I own a pair of these. Now I need a glove and fedora.

I wish these cool kicks were made in my size!

I'm proud to be affiliated with the folks who made that twisted tee.
Upon joining the team, they sent me a free Zombie Eat Flesh tee!
Which I love, but now I'm wishing I went with the Nightmare one.

They're made by NECA and will be for sale sometime this year.
I hope they won't be too pricey, because I want them all!
But if I must choose, I'll go with #3 (my favorite NoES.)

Robert Englund is also selling older signed figures on his site!
(Somebody buy the New Nightmare figure for me, please? :)

I'd like to add him, Michael, and Jason to my LDD collection.
(Which I'll be blogging about soon. Stay tuned!)

Anthology Series

I adore them, particularly horror anthology series.
Here's my top 10 favorites: (In alphabetical order.)

1. Alfred Hitchcock Presents / Hour

2. Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

3. Beyond Belief: Fact Or Fiction?

4. Night Gallery

5. The Outer Limits

6. The Ray Bradbury Theater

7. Tales From The Darkside

8. Tales Of The Unexplained From Behind The Veil

9. Thriller

10. The Twilight Zone

I'll be extending this list though. Adding The Dead Hour, a terrorific new webseries!
There's five episodes on the site, each about fifteen minutes long. (Short, but sweet!)
I enjoyed them all. Check them out! You can preview each episode in the trailer:

They're currently working on Season 2, which I'm looking forward to!
(There's also a casting call. So, if you're into acting and in the Omaha area, look into it!)

Team David

I just discovered that David returns in the sequel,
Though he isn't played by Kiefer Sutherland, sadly.
Corey Feldman and Corey Haim return in it though,
so it may be worth checking out.

David also makes an appearance in the comic,
which bridges the gap between the first and second films.

There's a third Lost Boys film as well,
which was released on DVD last year.

Happy Birthday, George and John!

George A. Romero turns 71 today!

And John Carradine would be 105 tomorrow!
Here he's portraying Dracula for the first time,
 in House of Frankenstein (1944)

Note his ring. You can own a replica of that bling!

The ring was also worn by Bela Lugosi,
in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
And by Christopher Lee later as well.

There's your history lesson for today!
(Just trying to tie this into the blogathon. ;)

Bloodlust Blogathon Begins!

Let's start with a song, shall we?

Zombies aren't the only ghouls who groove.
Watch these vampires bust some moves...
