Showgirls from the 1926 film Hell’s 400

Look at these sassy beelzebroads! Though the imagery might lead you to believe this is a film about Hell’s Elite “cackling diabolically over the latest batch of the damned”, it is but a story of common gold diggers and larceny. (h/t Cabinet of Curiosities)

 

Speaking of Sarah Troop over at Cabinet of Curiosities, do be sure to take a peek at her new project, Death and the Maiden, a blog exploring the relationship between women and death. The site launches today and there is a giveaway for Kate Mayfield’s The Undertaker’s Daughter!

 

One of my favorite instagram accounts lately is creepycomics, which is brimming with cheesy, pulpy horror goodness from yesteryear.

 


Oh my goodness. I cannot wait. Crimson Peak is going to be marvelous.

VIDEO LUST: moments of romantic obsession for video memories of the past. “…a plethora of horror, fantasy and sci-fi soundtracks that work magically together. This mix arrives right on time for Valentine’s Day and should be used to guide you in whatever direction your night takes on the 14th.” (via)

“What Kind Of Man” the first video from Florence + The Machine’s new album, ‘How Big How Blue How Beautiful’.  It is a heavy one; frighteningly intense and strangely cathartic, and brimming with that strange, dazzling energy unique to this lady.  I think I love it.

John Allison revisits university life in Giant Days. There are very few webcomics I read anymore, but I have been peeking in at John Allison’s work for over a decadeI even had the opportunity to interview him a few years ago! Most recently he has been collaborating on a short run print version featuring some much beloved characters.

Horror’s scariest trend is the nonexistent black film maker.

      Yeah, it’s so much fun! The only issue I have is that they never tell us where they got the images from, who are the artists, etc. Quick reverse image searches tell me they are all old pulpy weird tales and mystery magazines and chapbooks, etc though…so it’s definitely worth trawling through all of those archives to find more great stuff like it!

    Oh man, I didn’t know there is a second season of Adult Wednesday Addams! I wish they’d make it into a full length tv series!
