SHOCKtober Day 21


Paquita Maria Sanchez (Dead Alive, aka Brain Dead)



The Tall Man (Phantasm)


Sayeth the chooser:

"I like your Kruegers and Myers and Voorheeses as much as the next guy, but
it's The Tall Man who's the man. I mean if your name is Angus Scrimm you're
already cooler than almost the whole world.

Drivin' around in that cool hearse, killing priests, digging up bodies and
compacting them into those great li'l jawa guys, saying "Boooooy!" to boys,
I want to work for that man.

Just don't watch Phantasm III. In fact please stomp to death any copies you find
even if they don't belong to you."

I saw Dead Alive for the first time the other night, and I *LOVED* Paquita! So glad to see her represented here!

Wait, what's wrong with Phantasm III?
Obviously it's kind of redundant but not the worst sequel I've ever seen.
