It’s beginning to look a lot like fishmen…

Probably actress Barbara Bach (b. 1947) posing with a fishman played by I-know-not-whom in a publicity still for the 1979 Italian action-adventure-horror film L’isola degli uomini pesce (Island of the Fishmen).

As it does so often, the IMDB entry (which gives the movie the title Screamers) does not disappoint in its luridness.

The main image on this post is a reblog from a 16 November 2013 post at Infernal Wonders. The first appearance the image made appears to have been at a tumblr called Cocks and Cowboys.

Teenage Zombies

“Young pawns thrust into pulsating cages of horror in a sadistic experiment!” The Wikipedia article on this 1958 or 1960 oddity (the article can’t agree with itself) suggests that it is one of those rare examples of a mad science movie with a female antagonist. This poster is reblogged from 15 November 2013 post at Infernal Wonders. I originally found it at the tumblr Monsters Forever.

A gorilla. How dull.

Big scary apes of some kind have a long history in tales of mad science, especially around pretty women, who are ever at risk of being menaced by them, carried off by them, or even transformed into them.

Someone tried getting that sort of mad science excitement into this image, but seems to have missed the mark. This is a publicity still from a 1942 B picture, The Strange Case of Dr. RX. Our rather unimpressed looking damsel is Anne Gwynne (1918-2003) and presumably the man in the gorilla suit is Ray “Crash” Corrigan (1902-1976). Don’t you wish you had a name as cool as “Ray ‘Crash’ Corrigan?” Of course you do.
