32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 14: Giant From the Unknown!

Giant From the Unknown

First up, holy crap, somebody posted another Procession of the Ghouls from St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York. Not only that, they shot it with a 360 camera, going behind the scenes and the whole nine. Check it out and make sure to whip around a bit to check everything out. Sweet.

Next, a trailer for one of my favorite recent documentaries: the 2011 Resurrect Dead, probing the mystery of the Toynbee Tiles. If you don’t know what they are, you definitely need to watch the film. I was thrilled to come across one the last time I was in New York.

Apparently, you can–if you look around online–find the entire movie. Cough cough cough.

Now we come to our feature presentation, Giant From the Unknown, from 1958. What happens when a five-hundred-year-old giant is awoken from suspended animation and starts tooling around the wilderness? Cattle and people mutilations, of course! The Giant’s makeup was provided by Jack Pierce, who, before he got sacked at Universal, gave you all the classic makeups you know like Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula and so forth.
