i.ashx - CopyWay back in June of 2010, the fine folk behind the magnificent She Blogged by Night held The Shatnerthon!, a tribute to the great William Tiberius Shatner. Scenes from the Morgue heeded the call and participated back then, and now, to celebrate Wild Bill’s birthday this weekend, it was high time we migrated those ads over to the new site plus a few more treats mixed in. Enjoy.

FINALLY! Thank you, Ghost of the Conestoga 4. Great artwork, outstanding cast, and Michael Ironside makes for a great psychopath, but, too bad the movie they were all plugged into kinda stinks. I’ve seen it. Twice. But damned if I can remember if the killer was after the patient (Grant) or the nurse (Purl) with the other getting in the way. What I do know is, the film could have used a lot more William Shatner.

The William Castle Blogathon :: His Face Could Stop a Heart. You, the Audience, Decide His Fate! (January, 1962)

Despite assurances that the audience could decide the fate of our dastardly protagonist, no matter what rumor you’ve heard that out there, somewhere, an audience let Mr. Sardonicus off the hook, there is no evidence of an alternate, happy ending ever being shot let alone shown — except for that dramatic re-enactment on Wiseguy in what was perhaps the strangest TV season of episodic TV ever. Does anyone else remember that?

Also, somewhat coincidentally, as far as Mr. Sardonicus’ excellent co-feature is concerned, Jimmy Sangster might have been shooting for the same fearful beats as Alfred Hitchcock and Henri-Georges Clouzot, but, Scream of Fear (and Nightmare, and The Snorkel, and Maniac), I think, hews a helluva lot closer to the five-car contrivance twist-pile-ups of William Castle. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, mind you. Just giving credit where credit is due.

Don’t you just love the twisted artwork in these ads? First up we have the extremely twisted, and yet hauntingly beautiful tale of a mad surgeon whose necrophiliac sexual proclivities accidentally gets his wife killed. Not to fear, he has a plan to bring her back — and all he needs is a lot of blood from an unwilling donor. Enter wife number two … And then, Central Nebraska, welcome to the wacky world and demented genius of Jesus Franco, whose awful Dr. Orlof is also on a kidnapping binge for unwilling donors to provide skin-grafts for his disfigured daughter.

A lot of folks are probably keenly aware of Georgie Weiss and Ed Wood’s aborted-to-altered attempt to bring George Jorgensen’s transformative tale to the big screen in Glen or Glenda. However, more folks should really be aware that there really was an officially sanctioned adaptation that came out in 1970, The Christine Jorgensen Story, produced by the equally schlock-minded Edward Small (Monkey on My Back, IT! The Terror from Beyond Space) and written by his usually partners in crime, Robert Kent and Ellis Joseph. At last check, this gonzoidal classic was streaming on Netflix for all to see.
