Re: “Horrortober: The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972)

The worst part, for me as a child, was that our toilet made a howl just like the Boggy Creek Monster when it flushed.

Re: “Horrortober: The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972)

Adding: I saw it at a drive-in in Texarkana with my mom & dad when I was 5 or 6. We were on our way to visit my grandparents in Ft. Worth. So I'm guessing that had to be the original run, when Pierce was still hawking it screen to screen. We practically lived in the woods back then, and I was scared to go out at night for a long time.

It actually happens really fast, which surprised me. I remember it taking forever too.

Re: “Horrortober: The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972)

I saw this movie when it first came out, at my local--single screen--movie house. And of course, the scene where the guy is in the bathroom and the monster breaks through the window scared the crap out of me. And everyone else in the theater. It produced huge screams followed immediately by equally huge laughs. The rest of it was not as memorable. I think the effectiveness of that scene owes a lot to the fact that it went on for so long before anything happened. It seemed like we were watching that guy take a dump for at least 10 minutes. Or that's how I remember it anyway. Good times.

Re: “Horrortober: The Invisible Man (1933)

Una always does squawk her head off. She was the best at it. I need to rewatch this one.

Re: “Horrortober: Dracula (1931)

Lugosi was a master of stillness. He was a theater actor in Hungary. Here's fun irony considering the discussion of Dracula as Anti-Christ, the earliest known pictures of him are from 1909, as Jesus, from a Passion play. (when I do vampire day on my Halloween Livejournal, I always lead with that)

Vampire mythology is very heavily invested in inverted Christian symbolism. The words Dracula says as he feeds Mina his blood are Biblical, and often used in the marriage ceremony "Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone, blood of my blood."

Re: “Horrortober: Night Of The Living Dead (1968)

I watched it a while back and live-tweeted it. I have a high gross-out tolerance on movies like this. And it still got to me. Although it read very much as a contemporary political analogy. Heroic Black Dude does his best to keep a group alive against overwhelming odds and ever-growing resistance from Hidebound White Guy.

Re: “Live from Graceland: SiriusXM's Elvis Radio

Love listening to Elvis radio station. Really love hearing the Elvis & Lisa Marie duets. They sound so beautiful together. Would enjoy hearing these played more often. Wish Lisa would do a whole album of duets with Elvis. Also love the George Klein show with the great stories told about Elvis.

Re: “Film Review: PlantPure Nation

Yes, oil may be vegan, but it is not a whole food. Apple juice is also vegan, but not a whole food. These 'designer substances', no matter how traditional or far back in humanity's past they originated, lack the fibre that helps us digest the good substances that are in the oil. We are still evolving as a species. Eating a whole foods plant based diet, is the easiest fastest method without political interference of the corp./gov. swivel office, that we can all do to help stabilize our climate before there is no hope of sustainability.

Re: “Film Review: Grandma

I did mention that she has worked constantly in television, but this is her first leading role in a film since the 1980s. She's always good in everything she does, and I hop this movie gets her an Oscar nod.

Re: “Film Review: Grandma

I'm mystified why you made no reference to Lilly Tomlin's exceptional performance as Frankie in Netflix's "Grace and Frankie." Please explain.

Re: “Film Review: The Wolfpack

Just saw it and it is a great documentary-part Raiders of The Lost Ark: The Adaptation and part Grey Gardens! I liked the filmmaker's approach to this very unusual family

Re: “Throwback August: Brokeback Mountain

Sorry, CL. I must have been thinking of GW McLintock.

Re: “Throwback August: Brokeback Mountain

That image just doesn't do it for me, CW. But take John Wayne from "Stagecoach" and Kirk Douglas from "War Wagon", and it's better times ten. (The older John Wayne had no sex appeal.)
