Re: Christopher Lee (reply)
Here's my Christopher Lee story. Sometime in 1974, Lee attended a screening of "The Four Musketeers" in downtown Seattle. At the tender age of thirteen, I made my way to the theater clutching a copy of Famous Monsters, featuring a...

Re: The "Lost" CASTLE OF FRANKENSTEIN... (reply)

Re: Dracula Has Risen From The Grave (reply)
Regarding the G rating for DHRFTG: When the MPAA rating system launched in 1968, 'G' didn't mean "kiddie movie." It meant a film aimed at general audiences.  A smattering of  adult content in a G seemed not to trouble the ratings board,...

Re: IT'S ALIVE! Dear Mr. Mank, (reply)
I just happened upon this thread from 2005, promising a revised and expanded "It's Alive" by Greg Mank. Man, I hope this is still in the pipeline! I know a lot has changed in the publishing world in the past nine years, but this would be...

Re: Guillermo del Toro's The Strain on FX (reply)
I'm enjoying Corey Stoll, too. Offbeat thought: If they're looking for a lead actor to reboot the Indiana Jones franchise, they could do worse.

Sure, I'm mostly a lurker around here (6 years, 110 posts), but if there's anyplace a guy can proudly call himself a "lurker," it's here at the home of the Rondo. Congrats, CHFB!
