Maybe if we can find a news channel to ceaselessly yap about the "War on Halloween" every time some business neglects to put up any fake plastic bats or the cups at Starbucks have an insufficiency of skeletons.

Either way, I am doing my part. Full-size Kit-Kats as always, people.

Indeed, I think it's from some "Pyramids" movie. :mrgreen:

Lovecraft's take on the subject (with Houdini as hero, if memory serves well?) is one of his more frightening novels.

Yes, Imprisoned With The Pharoahs (a.k.a. Under The Pyramids) was co-written with Houdini

Weirdly, I have not seen a single one of those movies. Still funny though

You're right, that's not from Horror of Party Beach.

I still am pretty sure I have seen that movie though. Just can't remember

Thanks.

It's one that isn't in any of the Lovecraft collections I own, so thus its one that I actually haven't read.
