Vincent Price in Ghostbusters?

on January 14, 2011 | 6 Comments


This is by far the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. Sean Hartter does alternative universe vintage movie posters, including some incredible horror ones, such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Halloween; Ghostbusters starring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing; plus Boris Karloff as a retro Freddy Krueger. You can see them here in a post he put up in 2009 (thanks to Boingboing for re-posting this) – click on them to blow ‘em up. Even better: you can order posters of ‘em them on the site!

Girls, Ghoul Masks and the God of Thunder

on October 29, 2010 | 3 Comments


Here are some pics from last night’s Thor show at Sneaky Dee’s. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: he’s one of the best performers out there. Last night’s show had catchy, first-pumping metal tunes, monster masks, humour, beer, scantily-clad dancers, rubber props and even a full-on impromptu strip show! If you passed on the Thor gig, may the gods forgive you, because it was a freakin’ blast.

THOR! THOR! THOR!
