Krypto's on Facebook!

At my wife's urging, my dog, Krypto, now has his own Facebook page, which you can visit, check out whatever claims he wishes to make about his adventures, and even befriend him if you wish!

Famous Monsters #94, Part 3!

Continuing the spoiler-filled article from FM #94!

fm094_012fm094_013

Still from "The Picture of Dorian Gray," the article spoils "Turn of the Screw," "The Day Mars Invaded Earth," "The Beast With A Million Eyes," "The Haunted Palace," "The Haunting," "The Terror," "The Unearthly Stranger," "I Married a Monster From Outer Space," "The Gorgon," "The LAst Man On Earth," "The Omega MAn," "The Time Traveler," "The Skull", "Nightcaller From Outer Space," and "Cyborg 2087."

fm094_014fm094_015

Spoiled on pages 14 and 15 were the endings of "Island of Terror," "Queen of Blood," "The Fearless Vampire Killers," "The Curse of the Crimson Altar," "Planet of the Apes," "Beneath the Planet of the Apes," "Rosemary's Baby," "2001: A Space Odyssey," "The Mad Doctor of Blood Island," "Night of the Living Dead," "Scream and Scream AGain," "Count Yorga, Vampire," "Cry of the Bansee," "Dunwich Horror," and "Equinox."

fm094_016

Page 16 is the last page of the article, and the final movies spoiled were "The House of Dark Shadows," "Oblong Box," "Taste the Blood of Dracula," and "Mephisto Waltz." Some other movies are mentioned at the very end, but that's just identifying anthology-style movies with shock or surprise endings.

fm094_017

Page 17 features Mystery Photo Number 60 -- Any of you recognize the photo? It anagrammed to "Leo Fry Us Thet Chef" -- I'm actually surprised I recognized the photo before I even looked at the anagram! The answer to number 59's Mystery Photo was "The Man WHo Lived Twice"!

Next time... "Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde"!
