Alas, I did not participate in Shop Small Saturday, so I cannot do a post plugging local businesses. I went running this morning, so I could have done Saturday Running Commentary. And I am going to cook something for dinner, so I could yet do a cooking post. But here I sit, wanting to get my post done and over with, and I’m just watching, in the most desultory fashion imaginable, a Hammer Horror film I DVR’d in October.
Who doesn’t love a Hammer Horror film with Christopher Lee as Count Dracula? Well, Lee himself, as I learned in Ben Mankiewicz’s pre-movie commentary. As it happens, I am not paying a great deal of attention to it myself, even less so than usual, which regular readers know is very little indeed. I’m just not in the mood. So obviously I cannot do a real write-up as I enjoy doing, necessitating a spoiler alert. I did a quick search of Facebook for public pictures, though, to punch up what I do post.
I would not have thought of putting Trog with Taste the Blood of Dracula. Steven and I watched Trog some years ago, back in the days of video stores. It was Joan Crawford’s final picture, so we watched it to show respect. There isn’t really much other reason to watch it, if I recall correctly. Still, if it shows up on TCM I will DVR it. Maybe I’ll let it play while I type a blog post.
