Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #231!

Spaceways  (Lippert Pictures, 1953)

One of those British flicks starring an American that they made throughout the 50's. I haven't seen this one, but I imagine it would be a slightly slow drama with some charming special effects. I'd watch it, certainly.

The Astrologer  (December 1975)

 Before The Exterminator, here was James Glickenhaus's first movie - with Exterminator II's director Mark Buntzman along for the ride. I don't know much else about it - but I was intrigued there was another completely different movie the same year called The Astrologer. Hmmm.

Juggernaught  (Grand National Pictures, 1937)
Not a horror movie per se - but more a crime drama as a couple works to poison someone slowly to death. It was made during Boris's brief return to England after his first round of Universal Horror Movies before he moved back to Hollywood for most of the rest of his career.

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. I love your new blog header, and these posters all look awesome.

  2. The artwork on the Spaceways poster is really nice. Reminds me of scifi novel covers from the same era, and a couple early Trek books.

    A few years ago, our high school did a nice job with a production of Arsenic and Old Lace. I love the film. It's a pity Boris Karloff wasn't free to play Jonathan Brewster. Would have been the funniest bit of stunt casting in movie history--and of course, he would have been great!

    1. The Spaceways poster is really very cool.

      I wish Karloff could have been in the movie version of Arsenic and Old Lace. He was doing the show on Broadway - and that famous line was added because of his participation in the show - but they wouldn't release him for the film for whatever reason - I guess because he really was a draw for the stage show. The laughs that erupted each performance when he would say that line must have been glorious.
