Patty McCormack / H. P. Lovecraft

Happy Birthday, Patty McCormack, born this day in 1945 in Brooklyn NY. Most famously and fondly remembered for her ultra-chilling child role as Rhoda Penmark in the murderous kid classic The Bad Seed (’56), she has starred in a variety of top notch genre film and television throughout her truly amazing career.


And for shame, yesterday we completely overlooked the birth of H. P. Lovecraft who turned 118. Thanks to the Quasar Dragon for reminding us.

Jeez, I completely missed HPL's birthday, too. Thanks for waking me up. And, my god, that illustration of Lovecraft is amazing. Where does it come from?

Spooked me something awful.
