Carnival of Death

Just yesterday, Brian Barnes was asking me if I was aware of the great Laff In the Dark website (and yes, it’s one of my favorite website ever, of course!), and that in turn reminded me of this freaky funhouse tale from the March 1954 issue of Journey into Fear #18. I do find it odd how very little precode content there is when it comes to stories about amusement park haunted attractions, ie: dark rides, spook houses, hall of mirrors etc (I’ve attempted to put together a book about it for years since it’s clearly the perfect setting), but no can do, unfortunately. But the Iger Shop really outdoes themselves this time around with an insanely creepy creature design though, and like our last post, we also get another off hand comment about the lovely aroma of death. Enjoy! Hahahahahahahahaha…

Terror from the Tomb!

If you couldn’t tell, I’m a big fan of these 1940’s / 50’s detective stories featuring sexy, supernatural overtones, and this oddly written sock ’em shock ’em –also from the same April 1948 issue of Manhunt #7 as our last post HERE –is certainly no exception! Here we find juicy Jim Fallon of the FBI on the case (I say “juicy” because dig the babe checkin’ out Jim at the top of page 3!); we also have a potential va-va-va-voom vampire girl on the prowl, brutal thugs turnin’ up the horrific heat, and THOIA fan fave artist, Ogden Whitney, signing his freakin’ name right in the middle of the harrowing climax! Fun, off-beat stuff that should’ve been made into a spooky movie or TV show back in the day, and starring Vikki Dougan as the female lead, please…

Va-Va-Va-Vikki Dougan!

The Man with the Beast-like Face

We’re a day early, but Werewolf Wednesday is here and already howlin’ at your moon (huh?!), and today it’s a ferociously fun fright-fight courtesy of the April 1948 issue of Manhunt #7. Yes sir, Inspector Kirk is back (see another perplexin’ post HERE) and ok we agree, it’s pretty light on story, but man oh wolfman is it ever rockin’ with the Scotland Yard copper trading fisticuffs vs. lycanthrope action! So don’t ask any questions, just sit back and enjoy the ringside (and rooftop) seat as we all learn another valuable lesson in how to stop a weird ass werewolf!

This story even graced the full cover on a later 1954 reprint! POW!

The Wax Man! / Ordeal by Wax!

I took my son to our local wax museum here in STL last month, and we had so much fun I thought that I’d take you all on a terrifying trip to one as well! Our first tale in today’s doomed double feature via THE HORRORS OF IT ALL WAX MUSEUM COLLECTION is from the March 1953 issue of Chamber of Chills #16, followed by a steamy little number from the December 1952 issue of Weird Mysteries #2  –some of you might remember this one from Haunted Horror #15.

Devil’s Festival

Whoa… I just realized that two posts ago THOIA delivered post #2,000! And for those that care, AEET finally hit 1,000 posts about 20 posts ago as well! (Man, I really need to pay more attention to that sort of milestoney thing!) So ok, not only are we celebrating Halloween today, we’re also celebrating 2,000(+) posts at THOIA, or over 3,000 posts when combined with my other blog. And now it’s totally time to turn these gnarly numbers into a festival, and of course there’s no greater host of horrors (besides me!) than the King of Hell himself– Satan! It is, in fact, a Devil Double Feature, the first story from the July 1953 issue of Strange Mysteries #12, plus a bonus half page quickie from the April 1953 issue of Out of the Shadows #8, with art possibly by Vince Coletta!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PLUS! Mr. Karswell, Halloween ’71

Happy Halloween everyone, stay safe and warm (it’s freakin’ snowing and freezing rain here in the midwest –arghh!), and have yourselves an enchantingly evil evening of sinful celebration –and most importantly– CANDY CANDY CANDY!!

The Little Black Box / Black Crows!

What October would be complete without an Atlas tale– or two! Yes, THOIA is back in black with a couple of truly dark, mortifyingly mysterious terror tales! And jolting Joe Maneely lights it all up with a super hot little number from the March 1952, debut issue of Mystery Tales #1, –it’s guaranteed to give you heart burn! Followed by a scary story from the January 1954 issue of Mystery Tales #17 about an 80’s rock band from Georgia that released 8 studio albums and– just joking– it’s the long awaited return of astounding Al Luster to this blog! And whoa, despite being one of my all-time Atlas favorites, this is the first Luster post we’ve seen around these parts in nearly 10 years! That alone should be enough to shake your money maker! 😉

After today’s post, head over to my other blog for a hilarious “Splater Version” of Siskel and Ebert’s At the Movies– PLUS, a spoof on precode horror and Creepshow!
