This is why I'm in no hurry to have the Tufa go to Hollywood.  If you don't know the history, read the first blog she links to.  It Gerritsen wasn't a best-selling author already, she would've never been able to take it this far; most writers would just be screwed from the git-go.

Wisconsin's own Bill Rebane, director of "The Giant Spider Invasion," among others, gets profiled. I met him in 2005 at the retrospective they mention. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/ae/movies/3767683-wisconsin-cult-filmmaker-celebrates-40-years-giant-spider

At my blog today, I talk about the time I met Chely Wright​ in Nashville years ago, and my thoughts after watching her documentary, "Wish Me Away." 
So one time I met Chely Wright. It was around 1998. I worked in a Nashville mall at the Bombay Company, a repulsive chain store that sold overpriced foreign-made furniture and faux artsy knickknacks. I…

Just watched "Wish Me Away," a documentary about country singer Chely Wright's coming out. It was one of the bravest things I've ever seen, because I've been around the core country music* audience all my life, and believe me, there's a reason they ain't known for their compassion or forgiveness. Just ask the Dixie Chicks.

*no, obviously not all country fans. Hell, I'm a country fan. But I suspect you know exactly the kind of people I mean.

Tonight I showed Imperator Valette "Night of the Demon," the 1957 British classic. I love it, in large part for its impeccable Britishness--everything is understated, and all the more powerful for it. The great Niall MacGinnis is wonderful as the villain Karswell. And is it me, or is the noise made by the demon very similar to the sound made by the giant ants in "Them"?

Showed "The Uninvited" to Imperator Valette tonight (the 1944 one, not the 2009 slasher film). One of the great ghost stories, with Ray Milland in top form paired with the heartbreaking Gail Russell. Has effortlessly snappy dialogue that in no way interferes with the chills, and special effects that show you just enough of the ghost to give you goosebumps. Glad that Criterion has put this out on blu-ray.

Just watched the DVD of "Appalachian Storm," the rewrite of "The Tempest" with a dollop of Tufa thrown in, performed by a homeschoolers association in Jefferson, NC. Someone even sang some of the original lyrics I had in "The Hum and the Shiver," which I would never have expected. Thanks to Ramona A. Renfroe for putting together such a magical show; and please give my best to the cast and the band, too!

The Squirrel Boy has discovered MST3K. Last night, he watched "The Wild World of Batwoman."
Squirrel Boy: That movie was TERRIBLE.  I can't understand why anyone would even make a movie like that!
Me, in sage Obi-Wan voice: You've taken your first step into a larger world.

Good choices. I use "Space Mutiny," "The Final Sacrifice," and the one that got me hooked, "Pod People."
