KEEP WATCHING THIS SPACE
Hey there Blogger buddies, your favorite workhorse is hard at it again. In a bold unprecedented move I am showing you a work in progress. I need another day or so to finish this piece, but it's just so much fun, and since it is show and tell Sunday, I thought I would let you all have a sneak peek. When it's finished I'll re-edit this post and insert the final version.
I hope to do a whole series of these which I title MOVIES THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. The idea occurred to me when I was looking for some source material for an illo Jim Main suggested of She-creature, and coincidently noticed a nearby photo of the Stooges. Having a passion for mixing horror with humor, I couldn't resist combining the two.
When I was a wee little lad some friends from school and I would hang out on rainy Saturdays and watch old B-movie horror flics on WSBK's CREATURE DOUBLE FEATURE. This would occasionally lead to conversations about what would've made the movie better, different actors, different rivals, location, ect. Now I have come up with a short list of lobby cards for MOVIES THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN, (and I think you'll get a kick out of them), but I would also like to hear from each of you out there in Blogger-land...what movies would you have liked to seen during the schlock film era? Please let me know, If I use the idea, I will send you the original art.
