Mr. Cellophane

In a location adjacent to a place in a city of some significance, what comes out of my head is plastered on the walls of this blog.

Another day, another remnant of my childhood. Back in the mid-90s, Showtime devoted Thursday nights at 10 to a series of movies under the umbrella of 'Roger Corman Presents'. Some of these were remakes of past Corman films (Piranha, Not of This Earth, The Wasp Woman) and some were originals (Virtual Seduction, Black Scorpion). None of these were what you'd traditionally call 'good', but - to a 14-year-old boy in the throes of puberty - they provided the requisite thrills and T 'n A that the target audience desired. There were two openings used for it. This is one. Not sure where the other disappeared to.

That opening music always held my attention. I learned some years later, thanks to soundtrack boffin Ford A. Thaxton, that the music was entitled "It's Clobberin' Time", composed by brothers Eric and David Wurst for Corman's infamous The Fantastic Four.
