32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 14: Dr. Blood’s Coffin!

Doctor Blood's Coffin

So first up, we go to our #TrackoftheDay, which is an old favorite of mine. It’s “Nature Trail to Hell” by your friend and mine, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and his 1984 album In 3-D. Having long been a fan of horror movies and also of Dr. Demento, how could I not adore this mashing together of two great things? It is a recording of epic, synthy proportions.

And for tonight’s feature presentation, how can you go wrong with a title like Doctor Blood’s Coffin? Well, apparently it’s (according to Wikipedia, which is always right) one of the first zombie movies to be shot in color. From 1961, it features our titular character, Dr. Peter Blood (yes, that’s right), and all he wants to do are rogue organ transplants and working on reviving corpses. What’s so wrong about that? Cut the guy some slack already.
