I Do Love a Severed Head Sunday

This is the man of the hour.

I pause in the midst of my Severed Head Sunday to make a blog post.  I was semi-useful yesterday,  getting my container garden planted and hauling lawn chairs out of the garage.  Today I am watching William Castle movies and chilling.  I went for a long run this morning,  which may count as useful, and I took a nap.  That has been my day, and here is my blog post.

I just love Joan Crawford!

 

We started with Straitjacket with the wonderful Joan Crawford.  There are several severed heads in that one.  I have to respect Joan Crawford (I don’t feel right calling her just Joan or even Ms. Crawford) (Come to think of it Ms. wasn’t even a thing in those days).  She kept working, even if it meant taking part in cheesy horror movies.  Of course, I LOVE Castles oeuvre, but they do not garner the respect of Oscar nominees.

And who doesn’t love Vincent Price?

We moved right along to House on Haunted Hill, a longtime favorite of ours.  You don’t see any heads actually get severed in this one, but you hear about it and you see a couple along the way.

A delightful publicity shot.

I don’t know what we will watch next.  None of our other Castle features involve severed heads.  Alas!  But I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday as much as I am mine.

  1. Now I know who William Castle is! I do not do well with horror; even one severed head is too much for my sensitive tummy.
