The Horror "Kick"
As long as we're on a horror kick, let's up those kicks with an article lurking within the tame pages of TV Radio Mirror Magazine, from May 1959. It's an interesting look at the dawning age and evolution of violence on tv, highlighted by some nice photos of late show horror hosts Zacherley, and Portland Oregon's very own Tarantula Ghoul! It's an interesting read, and of course written in a style that is very typical of every generation that looks to find blame for this so called "kick", whether in films, newspapers, magazines, comic books (of course!), and even fairy tales.
