Nothing like finding even more titles for my ever-growing list of “Need to add to the Library” that seems to better longer and longer every day, which constantly gives the middle finger to those that say this kind of media is dead. Recently, I have come across some new titles that I know will be upcoming editions to my library. Very soon, my precious….very soon.
Yes, I know. I’ve been slacking off again and missed last week’s photo. I’d like to say it was because I was exhausted from the HorrorHound Weekend right before that, but that still isn’t a good enough excuse. Granted, I say that now with Cinema Wasteland hovering over me in a few weeks! So we shall see! But let us get down to business, shall we?
Our last photo was from none other than Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. I have to say I’m pretty surprised more people didn’t get this one. But I did get correct answers from William Wilson and Greg Wojick, so well done!
This week’s pick might be a little head scratcher. Then again, I try to make all of them head scratchers, don’t I? But take a look and see what you can come up with. For some, it might be pretty easy. For others, maybe not. But good luck either way. As always, please remember not to post your answers here, but send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. That way everyone can enjoy the quest.

Today would have been the 82nd birthday of Spanish horror icon, Jacinto Molina, better known to us horror fans as Paul Naschy. Though he has been gone for almost seven years now, his memory and legacy is still as strong now, if not more, then when he was still with us. I think that has something to do with the fact that Naschy himself was so passionate about his work that it still comes through in the countless films that he left us. And with each new year passing, younger fans become aware of him and his work and his legacy continues. Thanks to DVD and blu-ray, and companies like Demios, Vinegar Sydrome, Kino Lober, Code Red, and the rest, they are helping keeping him and his films alive and well, and available for years to come.
