    on TCM:

    I sat through "Mr. Sardonicus"
    "Strait-Jacket" and "The Tingler."

    I had to mute at times because of the predictable Wilhelming....... but I was OK because I could anticipate the mindfucks......

    Those were the good ol' days. Anybody else seen 'em?

    What the hell is wrong with Mr. Sardonicus' face?

    Never heard of these but they look interesting. Have to see if they're On Demand or something.

    His father died and was buried with a winning lottery ticket, and when he dug him up to retrieve it and opened the casket he was shocked to see the corpse, and as Sardonicus screamed in horror his own face froze into a death grimace that mirrored his father's.

    Hence the mask he wore to avoid startling people. He coerced a brilliant doctor to help him, and even after that success, Sardonicus could not escape the curse of his father's desecrated corpse.........bwahahaha!

    His evil man-servant Krull lends an ironic twist to the ending of the film.

    It's not bad, and you could probably find it in a rental store.

    Interesting stuff.

    I first thought you were talking about the new show with the guy from firefly.
