This post is part of the For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon hosted by Ferdy on Films, This Island Rod, and Wonders in the Dark. This year’s theme is science-fiction, and we’ll be leaning hard toward the “mad science” portion of the genre, here’s an exception. Hope you enjoy, and please click on the link above and donate to help restore the silent film, Cupid in Quarantine. The goal is to raise $10,000. Give what you can, won’t you? Thank you!

Christian Nyby or Howard Hawks? In the end, I really don’t care who directed our main feature as this sci-fi epic about a Killer Carrot from Outer Space is a whole six-pack of un-ironic awesomeness and my love for it knows no bounds. Nope, no gut-check or toiling or sweating over the answer when posed a query of ‘What’s your favorite movie of all time?’ No ifs, ands or buts, it’s The Thing from Another World. And with that, we have officially finished migrating all the ads over from the old blog. *whew* Fear not, there’s still lots and lots of new stuff to post for your viewing pleasure so stay tuned. And until then, Boils and Ghouls, keep watching the skies!
