Nicola Piovani - Il Profumo Della Signora In Nero


Greetings...I hope you've all had a less headache filled Saturday than I have. I had to spend all day with a coworker who doesn't seem to understand that just because a radio can go all the way up, doesn't mean it has to. If it sounds like the speakers are going to blow out, that's the radio's way of letting you know that it is in pain and that you should turn it down a bit. Anyway, got that out of my system. I've got some fairly obscure Italian horror film music for everyone today, this is Nicola Piovani's score from the 1974 Francesco Barilli film Il Profumo Della Signora In Nero (The Perfume of the Lady in Black). I'm trying to get back into more frequent music posting here, kinda plan on keeping the Morgue more music/MST3K/comic themed and throwing the more random stuff over on Space Bastard!, along with the movie posters and everything. Well, I guess I can't really say "everything" yet, there are only 4 posts so far, but I'm getting there. Tell your friends.

EERIE - All New Stories Featuring The Best Horror-Adventure Stars






Okay, here are 8 more issues of EERIE. This set includes issue #47, #48, #49, #50, #52, #53, #54, and #55. I don't currently have #51, but I'll post back if I happen to find that one. Also, you may have noticed that the last set stopped at #42, you didn't miss a post, I don't have #44-46, and #43 was already posted in my very first post back in May.

Introducing Space Bastard!


Just wanted to let you all know that my new site is kind of up and running. I'm calling it Space Bastard! for the time being. I say "time being" because there might already be a site called that. I couldn't find a site called that, but when I tried to use spacebastard.blogspot in the address it told me that the address was already taken. But it was an "invite only" site, so I have no idea what the site is actually called. So, if the 4 people who have already visited the new site have bookmarked it already, the new address is:


The site will be full of various awesome images, stuff like old advertisements, high(ish) quality scans of old movie posters, or just whatever else I come across. It'll make more sense as I get more than 2 posts up on there. Anyway, Phelpster says check it out.

Hopefully I can use the name because I'm having a pretty great deal of trouble finding a name that's not already used. Every name I think up is already taken somehow. If Space Bastard is actually taken, I'll change the site back to it's former name of Prepubescent Werewolf. I'll keep the address the same though to avoid any confusion. This new site shouldn't interfere with this one, so don't worry. I'll still be sharing music and comics here. Speaking of comics, look for some new EERIEs here in a little bit.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Episode 904 - Werewolf





Shout Factory released this on DVD, so the links are gone. Think of this as a review of the episode.

Episode 904 - Werewolf. Also know as Wuhrwilf, this 1995 film is absolutely fascinating...ly awful. The most recently made movie they featured on the show, it's also easily one of the worst movies they ever showed. There are more continuity errors than you can even count. The moon is always full in the town of Flagstaff, at least according to the 72 random shots of the moon throughout the movie. The werewolf makeup is completely random, you never know what the hell these people will look like once they change. The psychopathic Yuri's hair changes in every scene. He must go to his hairstylist a lot, you know, when he's not beating people with various parts of lycanthrope skeletons or groping stupid women. Speaking of stupid women, Natalie, the film's heroine/gropee (and by heroine I mean female) has some of the funniest lines Mike and his robot friends have ever sat through due to her thick accent and poor delivery. Poor girl.

In my opinion this is one of the funniest episodes of the entire show. I laughed until I was choking and had to stop the movie on several different occasions. If you nearly die from the hilarity of something, it must be good, right?

Here's a cover for this one. I actually didn't do this one myself since I could never find any artwork from Werewolf. You can find the full size cover on this site, under the DVD Covers link on the left. Or if you prefer an artsier slimcase approach, check out Joshway's fantastic cover series.

In other news, I'm thinking about starting up another site. It won't interfere with what I'm doing here, this will just be a collection of hilariously bad old advertisements (with optional commentary) and movie posters. I know there are several sites out there showcasing old ads and movie posters, but I've always found them to be quite fascinating so I think it'll be fun. I've got a few name ideas I'm kicking around (stuck between Midget Encyclopedia, Everybody Wears Shoes! and The 97-lb. Weakling, all inspired by various ads), but I'll probably try and start it up in the next couple of days, see how it goes. I'll let everyone know when it's up.

Cinematic Titanic Begins...

Well Joel and the original MST3K gang's (plus Mary Jo Pehl) new movie riffing venture Cinematic Titanic has released it's first official DVD, The Oozing Skull. It's actually the 1972 Al Adamson film Brain of Blood, but they were asked to use a different title to avoid confustion, so The Oozing Skull is what they came up with. I'm a big fan of terrible movies, so I'm very excited about seeing them take on some Al Adamson.

The good news is, the trailer looks very funny (despite the odd placement of the silhouettes), but the bad news is that it's a bit more than I thought it would be. It's $16, which isn't too expensive, it's about on track with what the Film Crew DVDs retail for, but The Oozing Skull is going to be a burned DVD shipped in a paper Netflix-ey sleeve. So there will not be a case or a cover or anything other than a label on a disc. I'm working on making a cover for when I order my copy, (the early stage of that cover can be seen here, ignore the credits from Zombie on the back)but there's also a 2-week wait before it will ship right now. I'll definitely be ordering this one, I just hope they can eventually start offering either cases with artwork or lower the price a bit. $16 just seems a bit too steep for just a disc in a sleeve. At least for a poor individual like myself.

If you're interested, swing on over and order yourself a copy. And on a MST-related note, the latest episode, Werewolf, will be up sometime Monday afternoon, so check back to grab that.

Rollercoaster of Death 2: The Final Sacrifice - A Manchester Morgue Compilation


I've got my latest compilation ready, so here it is, Rollercoaster of Death 2: The Final Sacrifice. This is the sequel to Rollercoaster of Death 1, which was a sequel to My Hear Is An Empty Tomb, and Your Name is Engraved Upon the Stone. To be followed by either Larry Clark : Overzealous Chiropractor, or The Bad News Bears Must Die.

Moving on. What are the odds of me finding two "people being killed or about to be killed on a rollercoaster" images to use for covers? Seems unlikely, doesn't it? I don't know, maybe it was really popular to off people on rollercoasters back then. You end up owing money to the wrong people, don't pay up, next thing you know two big dudes are hurling your ass off The Shooting Star at Coney Island. Anyway, this compilation consists of songs featured in various movies, mostly horror related, but a couple of movies not so horror related show up as well (Meatballs 4, I'm looking in your direction). These tracks were either ripped from DVDs by me, or from an actual CD for any that I could find. I had to download an entire 4 CD album to get the Ricchi E Poveri track, like 358 MBs to get a 4 MB song. Madness I tell you. So, you know the layout by now, tracklist goes Movie Title - Artist - Song Title.

Killer Party - White Sister - April
Def By Temptation - Melba Moore - Face to Face
Haute Tension - Muse - New Born
Moving Violations - Nona Hendryx - Moving Violations
Once Bitten - Real Life - Face to Face
The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini - Nancy Sinatra - Geronimo
My Best Friend is a Vampire - Oingo Boingo - Same Man I Was Before
Night Life - Fastway - She Is Danger
Cutting Class - Andy Prieboy - For Love from Cutting Class
Cutting Class - Andy Prieboy - Man Talk
Haute Tension - Ricchi E Poveri - Sara Perche Ti Amo
The Monster Squad - Michael Sembello - Rock Until Your Drop (Remastered!)
Fear No Evil - Richard Hell & The Voidoids - Blank Generation
Big Meat Eater - J. Douglas Dodd - Who's That Man?
Teen Witch - Valentine Leone - Never Gonna Be The Same Again
Teen Witch - Theresa & The Weirz - Popular Girl
Only Child - I Remember The Night from Meatballs 4
Friday the 13 Part VIII - Metropolis - The Darkest Side of the Night (Remastered!)
Super Xuxa Versus Satan - Xuxa - 'Arco-Íris (Rainbow)
Flesh Eating Mothers - Sherri Lamar - Monsters
Boy Eats Girl - Not sure of the band or the song title, but here you go.
American Astronaut - The Bill Nayer Show - Girl With The Vagina Made of Glass

Haute Tension - I don't think there was ever an actual soundtrack released for this one. I've got a couple of the tracks here, New Born by Muse, which plays over the last minute of the movie and then continuing over the end credits. And Sara Perche Ti Amo by Ricchi E Poveri, which the girls sing along with in the beginning of the movie.

My Best Friend is a Vampire - This is a very funny 80's vampire comedy that I somehow hadn't seen until earlier this month. Apart from being highly entertaining it also has some pretty good music in it. I just chose this one Oingo Boingo track for now, but I might try and put together a more complete soundtrack for this one soon.

Cutting Class - Here are two tracks performed by Andy Prieboy, formerly of Wall of Voodoo, For Love and Man Talk. These aren't MP3's, but I can play them with several different programs (Winamp, Windows Media Player) and they sound fine. I didn't want to put different file types together, but I couldn't find MP3s of the album they come from (Upon My Wicked Son).

Teen Witch - I've got two cheesetacular pop songs from the rather girly film Teen Witch. The first one is done by Valentine Leone (who is the neice of director Sergio Leone of all people) and goes by the title of Never Gonna Be The Same Again. The second is Popular Girl, brought to us by Theresa & The Weirz.

The Monster Squad and Friday the 13th VIII - Both of these tracks were on the first compilation. I thought I'd try and rip the Michael Sembello track from The Monster Squad DVD that came out a few months ago to get better quality than the first one I posted from my Laserdisc transfer DVD. The Metroplois track Darkest Side of the Night was about 2 minutes short on the first comp and someone sent me the whole track, so I thought I'd add it on here as well.

Super Xuxa Versus Satan - Ah, Xuxa. Former nudie movie star turned children's television show host. You all know who she is, right? People from Brazil surely do, she's made a movie every year for the past like 20 years and one of her albums is the biggest selling album in Brazil's history. I remember her as the oddly hot woman who I thought was German on a show on channel 20 when I was 13. Well, in 1989 she took on the Lord of Darkness himself (not this one, this one) in this little film. I think the song is called 'Arco-Íris (Rainbow), but I'm not certain. The song is actually quite catchy, despite having some stupendously stupid lyrics. Sure, it's a song for kids, but still.

American Astronaut - The Bill Nayer Show finishes this compilation off with Girl With The Vagina Made of Glass. Kinda reminds me of Carter Burwell's music from Raising Arizona a bit, only weirder.

So, that's it, hope everyone finds something on here they get a kick out of. Here are the links, it's 121 MB, so it's split over two links.



Oh, and I've closed the MST3K poll. First place goes to Werewolf, with 26% of the votes. Followed by Escape 2000, Girl's Town, The Human Duplicators, and finally Lost Continent. So, after Werewolf the next episodes I put up will be the 2nd-5th place episodes. Look for Werewolf on Sunday or Monday, takes a while to rip the DVDs and upload them.

CREEPY - First and Best in Illustrated Horror





Getting this up here pretty late tonight, but here it is, the latest set of Creepy. This set includes 6 issues, #37, #38, #39, #40, #41, and #42. I wanted to put 8 up, but these ones are rather big and it was nearing 500 MB, so I wanted to keep it below 300. Once again I've tried getting these up on Sharebee, but the site just would not cooperate with me, so RS will have to do. You need all three parts to view the issues, and I want to give credit to the original scanners of these issues.

Vote For More MST3K!


Just a heads up, I've put a poll up on the sidebar, right under the About Me box. You can't miss it, it's the giant blue rectangle that's too close to the left edge of the sidebar. There are 5 episodes to choose from, and I believe you can vote once a day, so get over there and vote. My personal favorite of those is Escape 2000, the sequel to The Bronx Warriors, but that doesn't matter to you since I already have that one, so it's up to you guys. If you're unsure of any of the episodes, check out The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Review for reviews, amazingly enough, of all of the episodes. Be warned though, the guy seems to be a little too harsh on the Mikes.

In "My God! It took you that long to get around to doing that?" news, I've finally started utilizing the Labels feature (seen at the bottom of this, and eventually all posts). I meant to do it forever and just never remembered. Being that I'm nearing 500 total posts it might take a while to put labels on anything, but eventually.

And, while I'm here, can any fellow bloggers clue me in on how to get my banner to link back to the main page of the site? I know, after 17 months of Morgueing I should have the basics figured out, but it's another thing I've been putting off for no good reason, and I seem to be a bit stumped. And before you ask, yes, I'm some kind of idiot.

Tyler Bate's Halloween


I just came across this link. For whatever reason Tyler Bate's score from Rob Zombie's Halloween didn't get an official release, only a couple tracks on the Kiss and Rush filled soundtrack, but someone got ahold of the promotional CD and dedicated a Blogspot site to it. I haven't downloaded it yet myself, I'm downloading a really big file and don't want to slow it down, but the link does work. I'll be getting it later on, once this big ass 12 GB file finally finishes up. That is, if the link on that site is still up later.

I know a lot of people hated RZ's Halloween, but I'm sure some of you would like to get the score. Personally I found it to be decent enough. Some pretty good stuff, some really bad stuff, but not unwatchable in my opinion. If nothing else, I did realize that with the right haircut Ken Foree would be perfect as the Black Werewolf if I ever get my Black Werewolf vs. The Black Creature From The Black Lagoon project off the ground.

I'm setting myself up for more random attacks than I can count by admitting this, but I'm one of the few people out there who doesn't even really enjoy the original Halloween. I've seen it several times and it's just never done it for me. I get a kick out the fact that he steals a truck that says my last name on the side of it, but other than that I can't get into it. I know I can't be the only one out there, can I?

Hamburger....The Motion Picture

So, I hope everyone had a nice Warren Wednesday. For me, after putting the post up I had to attend a Christmas party at work. You know how sometimes you'll think something is going to be awkward, but then you get there and it's not and you have a great time. This was not one of those times, it was more awkward than I had even imagined. And the weird thing is I'm not even sure what was awkward about it, it just kinda was.

Anyway, I've got something a bit different today. I've posted several episodes of MST3K, which are movie length episodes, but never an actual movie length movie. Until now. This is Hamburger...The Motion Picture. The best film ever made with "Hamburger" and "Motion Picture" in the title. The film (and I use that term loosely here) is quite terrible by traditional standards, but I recommend it to any fan of bad 80's comedies filled with naked women and jokes about fat people and flatulence.

Leigh McCloskey (who you might recognize as Terri's college boyfriend from Just One of the Guys, or from Dario Argento's Inferno) stars as Russell, a huge fan of fornication. Such a huge fan, in fact, that his overall horndoggedness keeps getting him kicked out of college. Of course it's not his fault, women find him irresistible. Who can blame them, I mean just look at him. His parents don't buy this excuse and are fed up with his chronic expulsion and threaten to withhold Russell's inheritance money until he's graduated from some school, any school. Desperate, Russell enrolls in Busterburger University. Buster Burger being a McDonalds-type fast food place, BBU gives people the know how to run their own Buster Burger franchise. That's the basic setup. From there it's just wacky scene after wacky scene of random wackiness.


Scrotum...a real delicacy for the rich and famous

I made a cover for it, but then I thought it might just end up being used to sell people poor quality bootlegs on eBay, so I didn't want to post it full size here. But here's what I came up with with the limited amount of images I had to work with.
Random interesting fact about Leigh McCloskey, he's actually a pretty talented painter and author.

EERIE - It's Spooktacular!






And, here is the newest set of EERIE. This set includes 8 issues, #35, #36, #37, #38, #39, #40, #41, and #42. I only put up 5 covers, but don't worry, all 8 issues are included. I didn't want to take up too much space on the post, so I just picked my favorites. As always, credit to the original scanners of these issues.

This is the new format I talked about last week. Instead of doing a smaller set of all three comics, I'll be doing a larger set of one comic each week. These 8 issues, totaling roughly 230 MB, are split over 3 parts. You will need all three parts to read the issues. I tried 4 times to get them up on Sharebee, so you guys would have 4 different download options, but they're still having difficulties it seems. So I had to go with Rapidshare. Those of you without a Premium account, download part 3 first to minimize the wait before you can download again.

1.....2.....3


Also, while I'm here, someone requested that the soundtrack from Martin be reuploaded. I've taken care of that and there is a new link on the post now. Ironically I used Sharebee for that and it worked perfectly fine. Weird.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Episode K09: Phase IV


I've got a fairly obscure little treat today. Or tonight, rather. This is MST3K's take on the 1974 pissed-off ant classic Phase IV. This episode first aired way back in January of 1989 on Minneapolis UHF station KTMA-TV. I wanted to put this episode up since I'm not sure how many people have actually seen one of the KTMA episodes. You can find some of them on torrent sites, but there are never enough seeders for these ones it seems. They're not really as funny as we're used to, but I think it's fascinating seeing how the show started. It's all pretty weird at first. It's got a different opening, one where Joel looks like a roadie for Journey. Dr. Forrester doesn't have his mad scientist hair, the bots are different, it's kinda like a Bizarro version of the show At least after growing so accustomed to the Comedy Central/Sci-Fi episodes.

Hope some of you get a kick out of seeing this. The picture quality isn't great, but it should be pretty watchable. Plus, you get to see a couple UHF channel commercials from 1989, which is kinda neat. Nothing as great as Spatula City, but then not much is. 

Here's a DVD cover for those of you who end up making a DVD with the file. I know, it's not accurate since Tom and Crow don't start to look like this until the first official season, but I think finding high quality images from those episodes would be quite hard. If anyone needs the 4MB 300dpi cover, let me know and I'll put it up somewhere.

Be Scared, Be Very A-scared

I just came across a rather hilarious little link I wanted to share with you guys. It's a slightly disturbing collection of photos featuring children screaming in terror while in the lap of jolly old Saint Nick. Click here for a glimpse of the horror. I can't remember what page it was on, but one of the Santas looks suspiciously like Harold Ramis, see if you can spot him.




I don't think I blame the kid in the second picture for his reaction. I'd probably react the exact same way now, at 26, if I encountered a silver eyeliner wearing, bearded fat guy with a murderous gaze like that. Yikes. Poor little bugger.

Vampirella - Uh, Pick The Winners in the 1979 Warren Awards Spectacular!





As you can see my "use the line from the top of the cover of one of the comics" title method is kinda crapping out lately. EERIE has said "Illustrated Pages of Terror and Suspense" for like the last 20 issues, now Vampirella has given me NOTHING useful for the title. Damn space vampire. Anyway, this set includes issue #81, #83 and #85. I think the next set of Vamps I put up might be the last for now since I've only got about 4 or 5 issues left. I do have a few Spanish issues and a lot of the stuff Harris recently put out, but not many Warren issues left, sadly. I will seek out more though so hopefully I can find more to put up.

CREEPY - Still The First Magazine of Illustrated Horror



Here's the latest set of Creepy. This set contains issue #34, #35, and #36. If you've ever wanted to see a Triceratops whoop a giant space monster's ass (and who hasn't?) then look no further than page 19 of issue #36. Credit again to the original scanners.

I haven't gotten the Vampirella uploaded yet, but look for them later on today. I'm thinking about trying something a bit different next Wednesday. Since I've started putting the Warren stuff up I've put up 3 or 4 issues of the 3 different comics that I put up each time. I'm thinking that starting next week maybe I'll just focus on putting up more issues of one comic each week. For example, next week I could put up about 300 MB (which would be like 8-10 issues) of EERIE, then CREEPY the following week and back and forth like that. I'd split them into parts similar to what they do over at Cosmobells, but I'd put each part up on Sharebee so if you don't have a RS or Mega account you can still get all three parts at once using the several different sites Sharebee uploads to. Does that sound okay with everyone? Anyone object to me doing it this way? I like having a variety up each Wednesday, but I think it'd be easier for me to put them all up that way. Plus I think I'd end up getting them all up faster in the long run doing it that way.

I finally got around to getting a new banner up top. I wanted to put it up when I posted the Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers music, but it's actually a bit of a pain in the ass getting them to fit properly so I didn't get it up. Someone mentioned that they thought I should post all of my previous banners, I guess as a bit of a "History of the Morgue" kind of thing. I thought that was a cool idea so I'll do that here soon. I'll have to go through my archives I've saved on my computer monthly to make sure I get them all. (Yes, I'm a dork.) Until then I thought I'd post a couple other banners that I haven't put up yet for various reasons. Anyone know if there's an actual Flash Gordon font out there? Or something similar? I'd like to use the yellow one at some point, but I couldn't find a font anywhere close to the real thing.

Viva Evel


I'm late posting this, so I'm sure you've heard by now, legendary stunt man Evel Knievel has passed away. He defied death more times over the years than I've gotten my haircut and it's a shame to see him go. He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, he was 69 at the time of his death. I actually just watched Hot Rod the other day, which had Andy Samberg attempting to break one of Knievel's records. Kinda weird timing there.

I think I'll pull my copy of Evel Knievel, the 1971 George Hamilton movie off the shelf in Evel's honor.
