Terry .. How would we work something like this ? Everyone who wants to join in puts there name in here and maybe you  pull the names on XMas eve  and email the names of the ones we get to us along with their address ? and we send them the gift  the week between XMas and New Years ?

Okay, here is how I think this should work. As Tom has mentioned, everyone who is contributing to the Xmas pot here will have their name placed into a bowl. There will be another bowl with the exact same names placed in it. When the Xmas Grab Bag promotion comes to an official close (December 24, 2007 11:59 PM CST), I will then pull a name from each bowl. Those two names will correspond with the exchanging of gifts. Each selected member will send their gifts to one another. This will continue until all names have been pulled from both bowls. Not to worry - if we end up with an odd number of name tickets .. I will rectify that by adding additional gifts to the grab bag. Nobody will be left out. BUT you must contribute a gift to receive one. That is the requirement here!

This is shaping up to be great fun! Let's keep it rollin'! Spread the word around the various threads, and I will be sure to post an announcement over at our Announcements board too!

I will contribute an X-One MIB Creature Waterglobe, or if you already have one, plan B is Disney Sounds of Haunted House LP and Frankenstein Jumbo Pen.

Very neat idea! I'll throw in this old drive-in herald. It's not exactly mint, but three of the 4 ads are for Karloff films, so maybe it'd be of interest to someone.



And I loved The Lost Skeleton Of Cadavra! I actually name my fantasy hockey team "The Lost Skeletons"! Am I to understand there's a new one coming out???

Lost Skeleton Returns ... Again!
« Reply #20 on: December 17, 2007, 08:24:18 PM »
Yep :) here is the press release..

Lost Skeleton Returns ... Again ! 
 The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra was one of those cult movies so tailored to a particular cross section of the cult movie audience that you either really dug it or found it to be a bore. Filmmaker Larry Blamaire's loving homage/parody of 1950's sci-fi monster movies about rigid scientists, obtuse aliens, a lovelorn monster, and a diabolical skeleton plotting to conquer the world is about to get sequalized in The Lost Skeleton Returns Again.

Blamaire contacted Fangoria the other day to inform them that he's currently in preproduction of a sequel to the 2001 flick that looks to pick up where the last one left off. According to Blamaire, the plot will go a little something like this:

“Dr. Paul Armstrong, missing in the jungle for two years and now a bitter alcoholic because science let him down, is needed by the government to help find a powerful new rock, Jerranium 90. His loyal wife Betty knows he’ll probably come home when he’s ready, but doesn’t hesitate to join the expedition.

Also along is Peter Fleming, twin of the late Dr. Roger Fleming, trying to restore the family name, who finds among the stuff he inherited from his brother a skull that begins to take him over. Seems the only thing that will restore the Lost Skeleton’s body is the legendary ‘Dalp of Annacrabb,’ which just happens to be made of ...Jerranium 90.

And so, led by Jungle Brad—twin brother of the late Ranger Brad, the expedition is soon underway, encountering characters old and new as they seek to obtain the powerful rock in the only place it can be found: the dreaded "Valley of the Monsters." Hot on their trail are villains who want the same thing, and will stop at nothing until they get the same thing.”

Shooting is set to begin in and around the Los Angeles area something in January. Presumably the cast of the original will also be returns when The Lost Skeleton Returns Again. Expect more details shortly.

Meanwhile, Blamaire's Trail of the Screaming Forehead, his Lost Skeleton follow-up poking fun at 1960's sci-fi flicks with a plot about creeping alien foreheads, is still making the festival rounds. You can check out more about it at the official Screaming Forhead website.

I'm in...I went through the boxes.  I'll throw in two Gold Key Boris Karloff comics and three DC Witching Hours, plus a Marvel 50-page Dracula!  These are all 70's issues and very charming and gruesome. 

There is nothing better than the Boris Karloff comics...I long for those days when these were CURRENT and to be found in most any store.  Yep, you'd find them pretty much anywhere.

Something seems...odd about this!  Wouldn't this cause some people to give gifts to themselves?  I would be confused if I had to mail a gift to myself.

Great idea! I'll put in a Canadian Fay Wray postage stamp set in a glass frame. (photo later)

If that happens, I will simply pick another name from the bowl.

What I meant was, would it possibly be simpler to have one bowl and draw pairs of names, and those pairs of people would exchange with each other?  I did one that way over at another board and it seemed to work all right.

That makes sense Rod. I suppose it would be easier. Yes, that's what we'll do. Thanks for making things even simpler.  :)

Sure, happy to help out.  This other gift exchange I mention was done on one of the Halloween message boards, and people came up with some really fun, weird Halloween stuff.
