The Late Show expands over to The Notebook with a new edition of The Forgotten, in order to consider Bernard “Mad” Vorhaus’s SO YOUNG, SO BAD, the quote quickie king’s penultimate film, his last US one before the blacklist slammed the door in his face. Girls in prison! Tracking shots into empty rooms! Careful with that fire hose! Here.

Stars Victor and Muriel Laszlo, Altaira Morbius and Googie Gomez.

Plus, we have new entries! Friend and collaborator Scout Tafoya weighs in on THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND at Apocalypse Now, with an individual approach I just loved, swerving midstream to also encompass Bud Boetticher’s last western.

And another friend, Jaime N. Christley, takes a radically different approach to the same/a similar subject at his Filmsaurus, here. Both are must-reads, I promise you. Tears in my eyes.

And we have another MUMMY limerick, because you can never have too many MUMMY limericks (apparently).

Tomorrow: more links (I hope) and a new edition of The Shadowcast!

An actual blog entry for the blogathon — Peter Nellhaus looks at a Shadowplay favourite over at the always stimulating Coffee, Coffee and More Coffee — H.G. Clouzot’s perverse and haunting last feature, LA PRISONNIERE.

In addition to that welcome news, we’re happy to bring you an older post by Mimic Hootings, commemorating AN INNOCENT WITCH, the last a late film of Gosho Heinosuke, here. It fits right in, so who cares if it’s five years old? Sink into an atmospheric bit of film writing!

And finally (for now), here’s the first contribution from Limerwrecks, celebrating in song the demise of the Universal MUMMY series with THE MUMMY’S CURSE. And again here and here and here Finally, he rests! Or does he?

In our annual Countdown to Halloween over at Limerwrecks, we’re continuing our pre-code theme by looking at 30s horror movies.

I’ve attempted to capture Colin Clive, Walter Huston and Lionel Atwill in five-line verse so far, and there’s more to come this week. Here.

Scroll further back for more pre-code poetic posies.
