Companion to Horror Hop - see below
This is a mother lode of 50/60's weirdness. Rock and Roll and Rockabilly...from a time when horror movies were simple --even simple-minded -- yet cool, and not full of pretentious cerebral frosting or gratituous gore, digital hi-jinx, and received ideas for increasingly receeding imaginations. Folks who remember Famous Monsters of Filmland; Saturday night television horror hosts; "spook show" hokum; gum on the back of uncomfortable seats (without cup-holders); Michael "Little Joe" Landon portraying a hormonally challenged teen werewolf; and the dark musty dusky stank of neighborhood movie theatres without hefty admission prices and ho-hum minimalist decor will know what I'm on about here. Dig this great volume and it's accompanying volume Horror Hop. Two of the very best - probably The BEST - compilations on the theme out there. Absolutely essential if you love Halloween. It evokes the smell of cheap latex Halloween masks and cherry bomb exploding imaginations --- one big blast!
