“What knockers!”

Light posting this week as I’m filming some mysterious goings-on Thursday-Friday. But over at Limerwrecks the Halloween countdown continues with a limerick on the last days of Hammer films, a rhyme rhapsodising on Dwight Frye’s performance in FRANKENSTEIN, co-authored with horror host Hilary Barta, and an ode to that most melancholy of monsters, Karloff.

Title from YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, of course, image from LUST FOR A VAMPIRE.

  1. The one on “that most melancholy of monsters” is something special.

  2. Yeah, I liked doing that one. Unusual emotional depth for doggerel!

  3. I, for one, appreciate the digging.

  4. There’s a bittersweet melancholy to Karloff in every performance he ever gave.

  5. Even as the Rev. T Vernon Isopod in Five Star Final.
