Barbara Crampton is one of my favorite so-called "Scream Queens". First saw her in "Re-Animator", which has just GOT to contain the kinkiest oral sex scene that you never actually see. She's getting head from a head. Barbara's tied down to a table so she is an unwilling participant. Strange movie.
Anyway, here's a pictoral she did after "Re-Animator".

(Note: As this blog entry contains information on the true crimes of Herb Baumeister, I am also posting this on my DETECTIVE MAGAZINE HEAVEN site).
An interesting little documentary about supposed spirit infestations at Fox Hollow Farm in Indiana.
Fox Hollow Farm, in the Hamilton County town of Westfield, Indiana, was once owned and occupied by businessman Herb Baumeister, his wife Julie and their children. Here’s a slightly out of focus picture of the family:
Herb had a secret desire for male companionship in the sexual context and so would bring back young men to the estate at times when Julie and the kids were out. The biggest problem of all was that Herb was killing most (but not all) of his conquests and then burning and burying the remains in a wooded area directly behind the main house.
To find out more about this, here’s the book to read on it:

You're looking at an odd piece of Americana. First time I recall not seeing Alfred E. Neuman's face on the cover.
As you might suspect, parents - at least in my small town - were a bit upset when their kids were bringing this particular issue of MAD home. My own parents must have thought that I knew nothing of what this hand gesture meant and that I would begin doing it at random. My dad's solution? Rip the cover off. Then I believe that pressure was put on the town's Rexall Drug Store to take this issue off the stand.
This, then, is NOT the issue I bought in 1974. It is, instead, a gift from MAD founder and publisher, the late William M. Gaines. I wrote him a nice letter once and told him how this issue shook up our sleepy little town. Apparently he appreciated my letter and decided that I should have this "unmolested" issue.
Here's one of their M*A*S*H* parodies.
