Renowned, worldwide, for being the smooth crooner behind the unstoppable The Love Boattheme, the soulful Jack Jones officially made an entry into the horror world with Pete Walker’s 1978 slasher The Comeback.
Playing a faded pop star whose career and life are threatened by a homicidal maniac here, Jones triumphed. Of course, this veteran performer had already dealt with many powerful villains throughout his multi-faceted career. Perhaps, though, none was more vicious than that unrelenting entity known as The Love Bug!
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
If I ever did drag, I would want to look exactly like British Page 3 babe Penny Irving in the cult classic House of Whipcord.
But — that sounds like an awful lot of work for nothing.
Speaking of working for nothing…the latest episode of Derrick Carey’s podcast Film Jerks is up and banging, audibly, at the institution doors! Awesome host Carey, and mind blowing filmmaker/journalist types like Andrew Shearer, Glenn Buettner, Scott Davis, Mark the Movie Man and (yes…get ready for it) myself discuss Pete Walker’s gothic Whipcord, here.
So, grab your regulation nighties and start listening, now!
