Oh, speaking of Bradbury, I recently watched the original much-better-without-Raymond-Burr Gojira
, and in one of the special features, it's mentioned that the idea was inspired by The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms
, which was based on the Bradbury short story that wound up being known as The Fog Horn
. That story was written after Bradbury took a walk on the beach and spotted a demolished roller coaster, thinking they looked like dinosaur bones.
It's crazy to think that that one afternoon where Ray took a stroll would end up leaving a legacy like that.
Okay, not really all that much to do with Hallowe'en, but I wanted to mention it here.
