Cruel Young Heart: "Nighttime Glow" (The Mummy)

Let me explain the four monster music videos I recently posted. I found myself playing a 4-song CD of a local pop group, Cruel Young Heart, and without any thought of making videos of them, they spontaneously sparked memories of the monster movies I watched waaaayyyy too often as a kid (The Million Dollar Movie ran the same movie all day in NY in the 60's). The lyrics described scenes perfectly (in my mind), and each song clearly represented a different movie. I had these videos edited in my head before I ever opened iMovie. A fifth song conjures Plan 9 From Outer Space, but the band is re-mixing the song, so I'm holding off until then.

Love it!  Do you know the band?  Have you shown it to them?  What do they think?

Thanks, Syd.  I have a passing acquaintance with the band.  They now use the Frankenstein video in their gigs, so I think they like it.

I've never seen The Mummy. (I used some Mummy footage that I ripped from a documentary on Universal Studios' horror movies.) I have to say I like the look of what you've shown here. My favorite Karloff performance is in Val Lewton's The Bodysnatcher but I'm sure there are other strong roles in movies I've never seen.

I'll be interested to see what you do with Plan 9. I predict it will be highly tongue in cheek.

That's kinda extraordinary, Jim. This whole series is awesome.
