Her take on The Star-Spangled Banner may have helped heal the nation during the Viet Nam War, but joyful terror tykes across the continents are probably most aware of the smooth tones of the divine Ethel Ennis due to her singing the theme song of the stop motion classic Mad Monster Party.
Credited as being a jazz icon, Ennis did not like to be sonically labeled, preferring to add her lilting personality and unique presence into whatever genre of music that she chose to sing.
But she was proud to be claimed by her native Baltimore as one of their prime attractions, dying at the age of 86 in 2019 after dedicating nearly 70 years of her life to the arts.
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
You have to admire the determination of some creators. It took director-writer Scott Philip Goergens a number of years, with a limited budget and a cast of eager yet nonprofessional performers, to finish his intriguing 29 Needles, a horror fueled look at one man’s journey into extreme body fetishism.
Goergens has recently released the film’s first trailer and, nicely, this Baltimore, Maryland lensed adventure seems to gladly attack Cronenberg territory with a delightfully twisted gay flourish!
