She’s so authoritative. So confident! The more you work with Batgirl, the more amazing she seems. How does she do it? Local Boogeyman disintegrated perfectly, but never reappeared. Where’s he gone? Into space… a stream of atoms… It’d be funny if life weren’t so sacred.
Local Boogeyman positively guarantees The Real Bruce Lee! He also believes in the sacredness of life. He wouldn’t harm anything… not even a fly. But what if it was a fly with the head of a man?! Or the man with the head of The Fly?!
“Terrifying! Nerve Shattering! Bloodcurdling!”
It was very on trend in the 1950s for movies concerning blob-like creatures, with a taste for human flesh. There was The Blob, obvs, The Quatermass Xperiment, X the Unknown, and a whole slew of others, all squelching around, trying to cause as much chaos as inhumanly possible. Spotting the trend, director Riccardo Freda jumped on the amorphous bandwagon, with his sci-fi horror Caltiki, the Immortal Monster.
“Crawling, crushing colossus of terror!”

“Civilization crumbles as its death rays blast a city of 6 million from the face of the earth!”
Rear Window was the movie that introduced the young Ren to the perverse genius of Alfred Hitchcock. I remember as a child, being irresistibly drawn into the voyeuristic position of his protagonist and fascinated by the goings-on in the windows he was observing. Hitchcock claimed not to care about the subject, morality or message in his movies, but only about the manner in which his stories were told, but his attraction to the psychological was one of his most obvious storytelling strengths.
“Through his rear window and the eye of his powerful camera he watched a great city tell on itself, expose its cheating ways…and murder!”
