Re: Hallowe'en Reading and Viewing, 2008!

Since it was Bela Lugosi's birthday, I got out my Bela Lugosi Collection and watched The Raven. I love how they frequently re-used music cues in those days; the "action music" was the same as that used in the Flash Gordon serials.

Now I'm reading some stories from The Supernatural Tales Of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I've read "The Ring Of Thoth," a mummy story and "The Pastoral Horror," which was described in the intro as a werewolf story, but which disappointed me with its utter lack of werewolves. I'm going to read "Lot 249," the other mummy story, then probably something Lovecraftian, and then get back to Four Octobers.
Please stop by my Gallery and YouTube Page for a visit. And read Trunkards! And check out my Heroes essays.
