Spider Woman Strikes Back

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 24: The Spider...

For tonight’s revelries, let’s start off by sending you elsewhere. There’s no real way to embed an episode of Desert Island Discs, but since this is a unique and excellent interview with Vincent Price, it’s certainly...

Terror is a Man

32 Days of Halloween X, Day 15: Terror is a...

For Day 15 of our celebration, we start off with an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents with an ending that was considered so freaky at the time, it was never shown. Shows with episodes you can syndicate, though, are as good as gold, so of...

32 Days of Halloween IX, Day 13: Voyage to...

We begin tonight with Rox of Spazhouse sending over a television episode… The 1950s ushered in many hour length programs that filled the television air waves. Experiments in short format stories with very young actors pushed the limits...

32 Days of Halloween VI, Movie Night No. 16:...

So it’s silent movie night here at 32 Days of Halloween. And, hey, we’re at the halfway mark right now. Holy crap. Time flies when you’re trying to horrify yourself. Anyway, we’ve looked at a number of silent films...

“‘Mother, She’s Just a...

I admit freely that for the most part, I simply don’t get Minimates. I’m not sure what a cross between a licensed action figure, a Lego figure and one of the little Fisher Price people has in the way of appeal. That and I see far...

Alfred Hitchcock from Psycho

And Now a Word From Mr. Hitchcock…

Normally I would wait and just include this in a Stuff feature, but we might not get one assembled in time and I thought you should know: the fourteen-movie Alfred Hitchcock: Masterpiece Collection from Universal is on sale today only (and...

Stuff: Red Dawn Remade With Canadians...

Why in the hell would you try to keep up with pop culture yourself? Outsource it to us. We’re professionals. Vertigo’s Exterminators, from Simon Oliver and Tony Moore, is headed for Showtime. I admit I haven’t read the...

Hitchcock on What’s My Line: To...

Excellent appearance by Alfred Hitchcock on What’s My Line? I wondered what he was going to do with his voice, since it’s so incredibly distinctive. Direct link for the feedreaders. A bonus bit of What’s My Line? after the...
