Then Is Now Podcast Episode 7 – The Spookiest Show

Greetings Fright Fans!

We bring to you another fun filled “new format” episode where we discuss several topics including a primer on where to begin introducing a young person to classic horror movies, starting with the Universal Classics!  Then we discuss the Vincent Price endorsed Hangman game as well as another Jason figure, this time from the film Freddy vs Jason.  TV Guide coverage from the mid-1970s continues and we wrap things up by discussing a topic you may not have heard of: Midnight Spook Shows!!!

Dracula (1931)

The Hangman game as endorsed by Vincent Price!
Similar to Battleship in that you open the tray and all the pieces you use are inside, facing you, so the opponent cannot see what word you’ve chosen.
Note that the scanner makes the plastic covering look foggy or blurry, but it’s not like that in real life.
Awww…Jason wuvs his teddy!!
