House Crawls

The yelling and screaming grows loud
Inside of the house there's a crowd
To Wolf and hunched back,
Add monster and Drac
It's more than the health code allowed.

House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944). This is where I should link to a song by Crowded House. Photos, from top: Boris Karloff as the mad doctor, with Glenn Strange as the monster (Doctor Macro); Karloff and John Carradine as Dracula; Strange, Karloff and Lon Chaney Jr. as Larry Talbot, aka the Wolf Man. You may recall Glenn Strange as bartender Sam Noonan on the long-running Gunsmoke television show.

I have loved all your monster limericks for the week. Just wanted you to know -- I even linked to it in Facebook.

Thanks for writing and letting me know that you're out there, though Halloween week would certainly be an appropriate one for anonymous lurking.
