'JAWS 3D SCENES' - Weetabix 1983ish

A good freind of mine let me borrow these 2 'Jaws 3-d' scenes from the backs of Weetabix to put here in The Cobwebbed Room'. I can't actually remember seeing these when they came out but I do remember seeing the film at the cinema, not a great plot but I always enjoy watching a 3-D film. The first one I saw was 'Friday the 13th 3-D', I then later saw 'Amityville 3' and 'Spacehunter'. I really like all these opitical type pictures, films etc such as Viewmaster slides, Holograms, 3-D images etc. The 2 images you see here were 2 of 4 that could be collected from Weetabix packets, 2 were featured on the 18 biscuit packs and 2 on the 27 packs. Would love to see the other 2 if anyone has them and would like to share them here it would be much appricated.

'Palladium Cellars' - screen captures from Norwegian film

Well I never thought I would actually see any footage of 'The Palladium Cellars' but thanks to Henrick from Norway who told me about a film from his homeland that featured the cellars, I must admit I did have my doubts, well you wouldn't expect it from any film let alone one from Norway, but it was true and I am so pleased that he let me know. Now because I had never visited the Palladium Cellars this was the next best thing to see this wonderful place that a few people had told me about and which is now long gone. The pictures you see here are from the film and shows the entrance with pictures and posters from the cellars, next we have screen captures of some of the actual exhibits featured in the film, here are Christina from The Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Frankenstein and Monster, and Dracula with victim. Wonderful stuff but unfortunatly not long enough, I was hoping to see the Curse of the Werewolf exhibit too, but beggars can't be choosers, the footage I have seen has been fantastic. Other exhibits featured in the short scene include, Keystone Cops, Bogart, John Wayne, Lee Van Cleef, and part of the Saturn 3 set. The films title 'Olsenbanden Gir Seg Aldri' is 1 of a series of comedy films featuring 2 of Norwegians top comedy actors. Great film by the way.

Thanks to Henrick.

Anybody that read 'Scream' comic (1984) will know that the editor Ghastly McNasty's face was never revealed. Each week you could send in your drawings of what you thought Ghastly's face looked like. It wasn't untill Scream Holiday Special in 1986 that Ghastly's face was revealed and here it is for those who never saw it. Is it has horrible as you thought?

HORROR BAGS 'CLAWS' packet - Horror Grippers offer

Well here at last is a couple of scans of the 'CLAWS' Horror Bags packet that featured the Horror Grippers offer, as you can see there were 3 to collect Claws, Bones, and Mr.Horror Bags himself. Nice little set these, still have yet to find any or anyone who has a set or at least one of them would be nice to see. Still looking for the Dracula hand puppet and any other interesting pictures connected to the Horror Bag range.
Thanks to Darren
