Dr. Gangrene Presents #16 - Doll in Brambles

This is a fun episode! A young Darren McGavin stars as Fred, who has come to France to help his friend Louis. Seems Louis has run afoul of a witch named Madame Tirelou, who has placed a curse on him to keep him away from her daughter Marie. From a TV program called Witchcraft in 1961.

Dr. Gangrene Presents #15 - THE HAUNTING


This episode is a spooky little tale about a man who leaves his friend to die in a skiing accident, after suspecting him of cheating with his fiance. However, his friend's ghost returns to visit him on his wedding day... starring Ronald Howard, Christine White. Look for a very young Veronica Cartwright playing the role of Gillian. From an episode of ONE STEP BEYOND, 1960.

The Haunted Palace

It's Thursday, and that means new video time!
This week I present Episode 55 of THE FANTASTIC FILMS OF VINCENT PRICE looking at one of my favorite Price films - THE HAUNTED PALACE:


In this episode Dr. Gangrene takes a look at the Roger Corman film The Haunted Palace, based on the H.P. Lovecraft story THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD. Price plays two roles in this one, Charles Dexter Ward and his evil ancestor, the warlock Joseph Curwin. Excellent film, highly recommended. About this series: Dr. Gangrene, Physician of Fright and Award-winning Nashville-based TV Horror Host (aka writer/film historian Larry Underwood) explores the films of the merchant of menace, Vincent Price, in chronological order from first to last, approaching them from a scholarly perspective, offering commentary, review and criticism.

Interview with Jon Mikl Thor - The Metal Morgue

Today I thought I'd share with you an episode of a short-lived interview series I did called THE METAL MORGUE, recorded in 2011. This originally ran in the podcast 6ftplus, but I have since added video and photos to go along with the interview. It features an interview with actor/musician/body builder Jon Mikl Thor talking about filming the 1980's heavy metal classic ROCK N ROLL NIGHTMARE, behind the scenes stories from that shoot, his music career, and more. Recorded in 2011.



To find out more about Thor visit his official website at thorcentral.net, and tell him Dr. Gangrene sent ya!

Shackle Island Slammed by Snow

Not sure what I did to piss Old Man Winter off, but he struck with a vengeance today...


Letter to Vincent Price from actor Mark Damon



OK here is something really cool. This sold on auction back in 2007 for just under $400. It is a letter to Vincent Price from his costar Mark Damon. The two actors appeared together in HOUSE OF USHER in 1960. He thanks Vincent for his kindness and professionalism. Very neat letter, glad that it was preserved for posterity.
