So, imagine my surprise while going through the special features on my brand new SHOUT/SCREAM Factory BluRay of The Town that Dreaded Sundown and, while scrolling through the posters and stills gallery, find a bunch of newspaper ads that originated at good old Scenes from the Morgue amongst them. Needless to say, I let out quite the happy hoop and holler at this discovery that lasted for a good five minutes as I kept scrolling back and confirming over and over again.

So, yeah, it was quite the surprise, meaning no one contacted me about using them, at least as far as I know. It doesn’t matter. (Though some form of credit would’ve been a nice touch, ‘natch.) I just wished they would’ve asked, allowing me to offer to re-shoot the series of ads in question and provide some better images on some of them. Regardless, this secret toy surprise totally made my day. And I highly recommend the feature, which is stuffed full of all kinds of extras, and once more commend SHOUT/SCREAM on another stellar release. And, hey, if by some miracle this gets read by the right people who want to use anymore art, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll gladly hook you up.
