Just Another Head in a Box

LizzieLou | movies,nablopomo | Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I am happy to report that I have finally found out the name of a movie that I saw as a youngster that imprinted on my brain in ways I care not to investigate. Say hello to “The Thing That Couldn’t Die.” I must have seen this on Chiller Theatre on television when I was around 6 years old or so. For over thirty years I have had passing thoughts about a bearded head in a hat box and lady walking around in the woods at night with a divining rod trying to find the decapitated head’s body. I’ve never seen a hat box and NOT thought about it containing a head.

Anticlimactic note: Although this is Very Exciting News for me, apparently if I had been watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 I would have seen this movie spoofed ages ago and would have no blog post for today. See comment section for the trailer. (IF YOU DARE!)

  2. Yep, I could have told you that too. Your fault for not watching such a classic TV show as MST3k (I have almost the entire series on DVD. You’ll have to visit and watch)

  3. I know! I totally thought of you when I read that it was on MST3K. Wasn’t there a web site somewhere that had all the episodes?

  4. Not that I know of. If you find one let me know, I’m still missing about six — which tears up the completionist in me.
