Dr. Cushing’s Chamber of Horrors Cover Reveal


The monsters aren’t only in the museum!

Despite a lifetime of traveling with their father to collect strange artifacts, twins Topaz and Opal Cushing have never fully believed in monsters or the supernatural. Oh, sure, they share an eerie psychic connection, and their tarot card readings often come true, but… Werewolves? Vampires? Living mummies? None of those could be real. Those legends are just for rubes. Right?

Since the girls’ father has been away, though, strange things have been happening in the family’s little exhibit—and in the waxworks studio that shares their dilapidated Victorian mansion on the outskirts of London. Now, the twins’ dreams of a fun, romantic summer season are turning into a nightmare, and the monsters are running…

Cushing Book 2

OTR – Lifeboat (1950)


In 1944, Tallulah Bankhead starred as Connie Porter with William Bendix (The Life of Riley) as Gus Smith in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic, Lifeboat. It was a thrilling tale of survivors of a merchant ship that was torpedoed by the Nazis in World War II. A survivor of the U-boat is one of the group of people on the boat and that’s when things get intense.

On Nov. 16, 1950, Lifeboat was brought to life on radio for the first time on Screen Director’s Playhouse under the guidance of Alfred Hitchcock himself. Tallulah Bankhead returns with Jeff Chandler and Sheldon Leonard. So sit back and listen to an exciting tale from decades past. TB

OTR – Shadow of a Doubt (1950)


In 1943, Alfred Hitchcock directed another one of his early classics, Shadow of a Doubt. Teresa Wright starred as Charlie Newton, a young woman who begins to suspect that there is more to her visiting Uncle Charlie Oakley (Joseph Cotton) than meets the eye. Hitchcock often referred to this film as one of his personal favorites.

Some seven years later, on November 9, 1950, Screen Director’s Playhouse brought the story to life for radio with Cary Grant assuming the role of Uncle Charlie and Betsy Drake starring as the young Charlie. So, sit back with a beverage of your choice and fire up the popcorn for another Hitchcock classic!  Hitchcock

OTR – Spellbound (1948)


In 1945, Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck united to star in another one of Alfred Hitchcock’s true classics, Spellbound. Bergman played psychiatrist Dr. Constance Petersen, a young woman who soon falls in love with Dr. Anthony Edwardes, the new head of the mental hospital she works at. Everything seems normal at first but this is Hitchcock and you know there’s going to a twist at some point.

On the March 8, 1948 episode of Lux Radio Theater, Joseph Cotton filled in for Gregory Peck (The Omen) while Alida Valli (Suspiria), billed here only as Valli, assumed Ingrid Bergman’s role. So, sit back with a beverage of your choice and fire up the popcorn for another Hitchcock classic!Hitchcock

Mihmiverse – Wild Wongo Women Meet the She Gods of Shark Reef


This month on episode 70 of the Mihmiverse Monthly Audiocast, the Kansas City Crypt heads back to the drive-in for a pretty rough double feature of 1958 “classics”…Wild Women of Wongo and She Gods of Shark Reef! When a talking parrot is the best thing going for your movie, you know you’re in trouble. At least Shark Reef had Roger Corman going for it!

While we may not get a traditional theatrical showing of a Mihmiverse film this year, you can still become a contributor of the upcoming films and specials from Christopher R. Mihm. Check out sainteuphoria.com for all of the latest news from the Mihmiverse, including information on The Phantom Lake Kids in The Unseen Invasion!

Meanwhile, make sure you take a look at a special sneak peek! Maybe, just maybe, we’ll get a chance to see this film by the end of the year, even if it won’t be in a theater.

As always, tell ’em Monster Movie Kid sent you!Shark

OTR – Notorious (1948)


In 1946, Alfred Hitchcock brought the timely story of a woman spying on a  group of Nazis in South America to the big screen with Notorious.  Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant headlined a cast that also included Claude Rains. It was a turning point in Hitchcock’s directorial career and marked the second of three times he worked with Bergman, the other films being Spellbound (1945) and Under Capricorn (1949). He would also work with Grant a total of four times, the other three films being Suspicion (1941), To Catch a Thief (1955) and North by Northwest (1959).

On January 26, 1948, Lux Radio Theater brought the story to life on radio with Bergman reprising her role as Alicia Huberman. Unfortunately, Cary Grant was unavailable but Joseph Cotton adequately assumes the role of government agent Devlin. So, turn out the lights and enjoy another suspenseful tale as only the golden age of radio could produce.Hitchcock
