Corman is Coming - Lights Out, Candles Flicker - Don't Look Over Your Shoulder!

I wish I could decipher personality clues of handwriting, because I think this autographed picture of the great Vincent Price shows a very interesting style of signature!  I'm spotlighting him because I will be writing about Roger Corman's "The House of Usher," starring Vincent on Sunday, June 19th.  My article is just one of many that Nathanael of Forgotten Classics of Yesteryear has put together for a blogathon to celebrate the movies of a horror legend - Roger Corman.  Corman was responsible for unique and varied films, and my favorites are the fright flicks!  The blogathon begins this coming Friday, June 17th and continues through Sunday, June 19th.  Take a peek at the list of wonderful Corman movies you can read about, take notes of those you haven't seen, and enjoy!

  1. Becky, we're all excited to be a part of the Roger Corman Blogathon! Thanks to you, Page, and of course, our own Nathanael Hood for coming up with this particular Blogathon idea in the first place!

  2. Dorian,
    It was all Nathanael who thought of this one! We are just reviewing right along with everyone else. Who knew we would be so excited about participating in another Blogathon so soon. Ha Ha

  3. Becks,
    I'm a bit jealous that I didn't choose a film with Price in it. And then the Boxcar Bertha with Barbara Hershey looks interesting as well. I haven't seen most of the films being reviewed so this should be an interesting 3 days of reviews.

  4. Oh, it definitely was our friend Nathanael's brainchild! I'm so excited to be part of it!

  5. well...at least no one had to review THE TERROR11
