THE DUNWICH HORROR - Les Baxter - "Theme & Freak-Out" (1970)

Pushing the edges just a bit, not because we have to, but because we want to, Here's " The Dunwich Horror" which was released January 14, 1970, so that means it was essentially made in 1969. It's based on a short story by the master of the macabre, H.P. Lovecraft, and is driven by a super cool Les Baxter soundtrack! If you are not familiar with the work of Les Baxter, then just search this blog, and you will be!

It stars 1960's Pop Icon Sandra Dee (Can you say Gidget?).

And kind of like another 1960's Pop Icon, Frankie Avalon, it's always weird to see beach perfect people in horror movies, and it always adds that extra special element of Yeecchh!!!!

Who's got the acid? Gimme, gimme, gimme! Now, kiss me!

Sandra looks Great even with this Hellish psycho nightmare going on!

Okay, ugly dream guy, can you get just a little closer??

It's a Paycheckdelic Freak-Out !!!

Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee
Lousy with virginity
Won't go to bed 'til legally wed
I can't; I'm Sandra Dee

Watch it! Hey I'm Doris Day
I was not brought up that way
Won't come across,
Even Rock Hudson lost
His heart to Doris Day

I don't drink (no)
Or swear (no)
I don't rat my hair (eew)
I get ill from one cigarette
(cough, cough, cough)
Keep your filthy paws
Off my silky draws
Would you pull that crap with Annette?

As for you Troy Donahue,
I know what you wanna do
You got your crust
I'm no object of lust
I'm just plain Sandra Dee

Elvis, Elvis, let me be!
Keep that pelvis far from me!
Just keep your cool
Now your starting to drool
Hey Fongool, I'm Sandra Dee!
