Plowing through some of my files recently, I came across some oddities. Some I was
able to identify, some not. And there's at least one of these which is, supposedly, out
there somewhere, which I would dearly love to see. Come take a tour of my Show of
I know what this is, but do you? This was from my local paper, early '80s, I think.
Naturally I had to go check it out. When I got to the drive-in, I saw that the title on
the marquee was KING OF THE GRAVE. No idea what either of those titles might
be, so I paid my money and waited. When the title flashed on the screen, it was a
movie I knew and had seen. But, despite some disappointment at not seeing a new,
mysterious horror film, I was glad to stay and see this because it's a terrific movie
This was supposedly released as an extra on Something Weird's SATANIS,
THE DEVIL'S MASS DVD, but I still haven't seen it.

Again, it evidently exists, and it reads like a fantasy all right,
but this TV Guide listing is all I know of it.
These two...you got me. I suspect (and suspicion is all it is) that these might be sex
films, either soft- or hardcore. But I dunno...
And this one has bugged me for 50 years. It appeared in Variety's production chart (from
whence comes this clipping) for a while back in the '60s. No idea if it was finished, or if
it was actually even started. Can't even be sure if it was, or was intended to be, a horror
film. This is all I got. And it pains me.
