I pause in the midst of my Severed Head Sunday to make a blog post. I was semi-useful yesterday, getting my container garden planted and hauling lawn chairs out of the garage. Today I am watching William Castle movies and chilling. I went for a long run this morning, which may count as useful, and I took a nap. That has been my day, and here is my blog post.
We started with Straitjacket with the wonderful Joan Crawford. There are several severed heads in that one. I have to respect Joan Crawford (I don’t feel right calling her just Joan or even Ms. Crawford) (Come to think of it Ms. wasn’t even a thing in those days). She kept working, even if it meant taking part in cheesy horror movies. Of course, I LOVE Castles oeuvre, but they do not garner the respect of Oscar nominees.
We moved right along to House on Haunted Hill, a longtime favorite of ours. You don’t see any heads actually get severed in this one, but you hear about it and you see a couple along the way.
I don’t know what we will watch next. None of our other Castle features involve severed heads. Alas! But I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday as much as I am mine.
