Scathing early commentary on easy gun access & mass murder based on 1966 University of Texas killer Charles Whitman! “I’m an anachronism,” complains aging horror star Boris (Frankenstein) Karloff (playing “himself” in one of his last roles) as he shows his director a routine headline from the news (played by actual director Peter Bogdanovich); “Youth Kills 6 In Supermarket!” He announces his retirement but grudgingly agrees to make a final personal appearance at the premiere of his last outmoded Goth flick in a local drive-in where he comes face-to-face with the horror of today’s mass murderer. He is not impressed. The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2000 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “Take that, modern-day atrocities!” (To see image full-sized, click on it to open in a new window & use the magnify function).
