For tonight’s excursion into the realms of the fantastic and downright questionable, we take you to the little-seen sequel to the Claude Rains-starring classic. That’s right, it’s Son of the Invisible Man, which features the most expensive special effects available at the time the film was created.
Ah, the EC Comics vein. No pun intended. There’s just something so satisfying about the normal plot structure of these stories, in which somebody winds up getting their just desserts. Or even unjust desserts, doesn’t much matter. For today’s 32 Days of Halloween entry, I’ve selected a couple of episodes for your dancing and dining pleasure. First up, “The Reluctant Vampire,” because anything that has both Malcolm McDowell and George Wendt in the cast is pretty much a shoo-in. Then we go to “Death of Some Salesmen” with another amazing cast: Ed Begley, Jr., Yvonne De Carlo (yes, Lily Munster) and Tim Curry thrice. How could you say no?
NOTE: Remember, this was an HBO series. So these episodes should be considered definitely NSFW. Enjoy.
