JFD639: Werewolf of London, The Mummy's Tomb, Abbott and Costello Meet The Killer, Boris Karloff

Schlocktober can't be stopped! And this week it extends its spooky grip far beyond this mortal world and into the creepy universe of Universal Horror! Join us as we party Halloween-style with all the werewolfs, mummy's, and old-timey comedians that we can squeeze into our living room.

Up first! We turn back the clocks to a simpler time when nobody had ever seen a werewolf movie before, with 1935's Werewolf of London, which served as inspiration over the years for countless things, including that time those dudes went to Trader Vic's or whatever. This one's got Henry Hull playing the werewolf, but don't worry if you ain't heard of the dude. He's still got fangs and claws in all the right places.

Next up! We head on over to Egypt and crack open a casket or two with The Mummy's Tomb, (from 1942) one of those non-Karloff, Chaney-starring Mummy flicks, wherein a dead man in bandages walks again! And science can scarecly explain it!

Finally! Of course, it's 1949's Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff, partially because we seem to be picking these movies in seven year intervals, partially because it's The Year of Karloff, and partially because Sean's fallen in love with grandpa comedians. Hey, it's got a cool cavern scene.

All this plus mysteriously upgraded audio quality, the Las Vegas pre-party report, how we get Halloweened, Sweetman's bathtub bonanza, the Munsters is beloved by Bowman, no sneezes, spooky snacks & silly cereals, no burps, Jerry's friendly follow-up, The Fallen One's flick picks, no gleeks, the big boobs up in the sky, s'what's a swami anyhow?, nerd news and even more! Recorded live-to-tape on National Butterfly and Hummingbird Day, 2022!!
