I promised myself a Monstrous Monday post, and I felt it would be better to get new (to this blog) monster pictures. After quite some time of puttering around Facebook looking for them, I found not a monster, exactly, but what one might see as monstrous.
This is a shot from one of my favorite movies to watch on a Severed Head Sunday, which alas, I did not have yesterday: Straitjacket with Joan Crawford. I sure do like movies that feature severed heads. I looked for more pictures.
Another big favorite of mine: The Brain that Wouldn’t Die. The sad thing about the movie is that the head wanted to die, but the obsessed boyfriend would not allow it. These mad scientists always think they know best. It took me a while to find a third photograph. I tried to think of movies that featured severed heads and thought of Sleepy Hollow, or, as I like to call it, The Headless Everybody. But all I could find was pictures of Johnny Depp looking sultry. So I tried Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, with another of my favorites, Bette Davis. Charlotte is more contemporary with the pictures I’ve shared thus far.
I could not find a picture of the severed head, but I’m not really surprised, because in the movie the head is more often talked about than seen.
So this is my Monstrous Monday post. Foolish, you say? In my defense, it has been meltingly hot all day, and I have been at work for the first time in two weeks. And if you’re going to ding me for whining, just go away. I will too. Perhaps we can meet again tomorrow on Tired Tuesday.
