We’re pleased to announce our participation in The Great Villain Blogathon, running April 13-17, 2015. Over here at MMC!, we’ll be discussing John Gilling’s The Flesh and the Fiends (1960), a ghastly, cold-blooded take on the Burke and Hare murders, where black and white cinematography proves no impediment to producing an effectively lurid and grisly film. And with less than admirable characters played by Peter Cushing, Donald Pleasence, Billie Whitelaw, George Rose, and Reneé Houston, villains easily seem to outnumber what passes for heroes in this tale of scientific idealism and grave-robbery.
Big thanks to hosts Ruth of Silver Screenings, Karen of Shadows & Satin, and Kristina of Speakeasy for making this happen and allowing us to take part. Head over to The Great Villain Blogathon to peruse the other contributors and topics and maybe even sign-up to participate as well!
