It was kind of freaky posting a review for the remake of The Wolfman today, on Lon Chaney Jrs birthday! Its kind of an eerie coincidense!

One of his last performances was in that Spider Baby movie, he was the leader of one of the freakiest families on film. Spider Baby is kind of like the grandaddy of films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Just saw Spider Baby for the first time last week, at a screening with Jack Hill and Barbara Washburn. Lon sang the song in the opening credits.

It IS a must see!
