SHOCKtober Double Feature!
THE FUTURIST! kneels in awe before these examples of vintage Universal Monster Movie poster art presentations circa 1931-32. Just gaze at the illustrative technique and color ... what pre-pubescent lad in his 1930s knickers, knee socks and argyle sweater vest wouldn't be in a state of suspended disbelief, not even aware of the drool forming on his lower lip as he stared, mouth agape, at these pictorial promises of silver screen wonders awaiting inside his neighborhood theater? The "fantastic Sensation" of an invisible man and a wrapped Egyptian mummy coming to life portrayed by "Karloff the Uncanny"! THE FUTURIST! feels faint ... he needs a double feature of vermouth and Vikingfjord Norwegian Vodka.
