Grab-Bag

A silk scarf... a pair of shoes... a hand held mirror... these are just some of the things that spell doom for a group of unsuspecting sorority sisters in this crisply illustrated, and refreshingly different supernatural tale from Ghost Comics #11 (1954), art by Bill Benulis and Jack Abel. This is the kind of story that William Castle or Roger Corman would have turned into a great B-film classic.


  



Speaking of Roger Corman: for those of you in or around the STL area, local film fanatic Tom Stockman is hosting another one of his great "Super-8" showcases at The Way-Out Club this Tuesday night, October 5th from 8pm until midnight. This time the focus will be on St. Louis horror legend and native-- Vincent Price! Tom will be showcasing a casketload of AIP greats, as well as Price's role as "Egghead" on the 60's Batman series (plus more Vinny-related stuff!) Check the flier below or click HERE for more!

I found this website http://www.thatsmyface.com/f/masks that can create a super-realistic mask of anyone from just a photo. Imagine going as yourself, your boss, your favorite celebrity or worst enemy to a Halloween party!

A man murdered. A woman's purse.

Haha that's just the kind of thing that always goes down when you buy a suitcase of unknown contents.

I dunno why I keep buying them.
