Leslie Nielsen February 11th, 1926 - November 28th, 2010

Son of a bitch. I'm just about to go to sleep and this news comes along and ruins my night. Sorry to see him go, loved him in Prom Night and Creepshow.,,20445526,00.html

Ghidrah The Three Headed Lobby Cards

I'm suffering through a particularly awful Family Guy episode right now. And I actually like Family Guy - despite Seth McFarlane's best efforts to stop me from doing so with all of these goddamn musical numbers. Anybody like those? Does anybody know anyone who likes those? Anyway, that has nothing to do with anything, just needed to vent my frustration about this lengthy Rush Limbaugh musical number. Here you go, enjoy some particularly awesome San daikaijû: Chikyû saidai no kessen (Ghidorah The Three Headed Monster) lobby cards. Filmed in Eastman Color, my favorite color to film something in because it makes me think of George Eastman.

Very sad day for fans of classic British horror cinema as I just heard we have lost the legendary Polish actress Ingrid Pitt (born Ingoushka Petrov). Known best for her roles in The Vampire Lovers, Countess Dracula, and The House That Dripped Blood. For more info click below.

Yaphet Kotto Week - Luchi De Jesus - Friday Foster

A few months back Manchester Morgue joined forces with several fellow blogs to honor Linda Blair with Blair Week - a week-long retrospective of her acting career. This week we're back to honor another legendary actor. His name is Yaphet Kotto.

Yaphet Kotto is someone many probably don't know by name, but most people have surely seen the man in one of the absolute shit-ton of films he's been in. Live and Let Die, Truck Turner, Alien, The Running Man, Freddy's Dead just to name a few. I'm sure pretty much everyone in the world has seen at least one of those movies, therefore everyone has seen Yaphet Kotto.

My contribution to Kotto Week is Luchi De Jesus' soundtrack from Friday Foster, the 1975 Arthur "Detroit 9000" Marks film featuring Pam Grier and the man of the week Yaphet Kotto.

Topps Presents Dinosaurs Attack!

Don't think I've ever posted a trading card series before. So here's Topps' Dinosaurs Attack! series. I remember when these cards came out, I'd get so excited every time my mom was making a run to the High's down the street because I knew I could tag along and get her to buy a pack of Dinosaurs Attack.

These came out in 1988, so I was like 7-8 when I was into them. At the time I lived for dinosaurs and gruesome (well, Freddy gruesome, not Sodomatik gruesome) scary movies so combining the two was the greatest thing I'd ever heard of at the time. Of course, if I had heard of the movie Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds back then I very well might've shit.

So, the link below includes all cards front and back, plus the stickers and the checklist in one CBR file for viewing ease. Credit goes out to the original scanner of the cards. But first, some highlights:

Dinosaurs, attack!
