The rumors are true. The Morgue lives again. We've pulled up our embalming equipment and staked a claim on some new, spiffier digs, which you can find by clicking right here. Please adjust your links accordingly, because, even though it won't happen overnight, all the content here will eventually be shifted over there. So if stuff starts disappearing, you're not crazy. Well, you might be. But, hey, we ain't we all? Crazy, that is.
Why you ask? Why this sudden flurry of activity? Well, I'll be honest. I missed it. I missed going through the old papers. I missed the hunt. I hope you missed it, too. And, with the new digs, and a fresh start, after a few false ones, I think I've finally got The Morgue tuned-in and focused on what I really wanted it to be from the beginning. Click on over, poke around, and kick the tires for a bit, and I think you'll see what I mean.
And it won't be just re-posted old stuff. Nope, though, I won't lie, there will be a lot of repeats for awhile as I fold the old Morgue and The Lost Archive into the new site. So, to all my old viewers, and hopefully a lot of new ones, we're back. And we're back for the duration -- or at least until I run out of material at Scenes from the Morgue 2.0.

Yes, as of today, Scenes from the Morgue is dead. Well, not dead -- just moved to the inactive list. No. That's not right either. See, in an effort to shore things up I've made the decision to archive this blog and post all further pulp film ads at Micro-Brewed Reviews. This wasn't an easy decision by any means, but, I came to the conclusion it would be better, for my sanity if nothing else, to concentrate on just one blog instead of four or five and felt it would be easiest to make the ads a regular feature there. Fear not, the old Morgue will not be purged and will be left up for your viewing and re-viewing pleasure. In fact, now that I've finally figured out how to post the images properly, meaning at a size you can actually appreciate, a lot of these old ads will probably be re-posted at some future date. Meantime, enjoy this feature's featured ads at the Morgue's new home:

Spending Christmas South of the Border with K. Gordon Murray Part II :: Santa Claus & His Helpers (1964)
After the box-office success of his completely demented Mexican matinee-only import, Santa Claus -- where Rene Cardona apparently read a book about Salvador Dali, ate some bad Figgy Pudding, and then downed nine pints of Mad Dog before hammering out a script, K. Gordon Murray quickly commissioned three more features to be released with several other imported Fairy Tales. Santa Claus and His Helpers was the first. Here, to make them mesh better, Murray added his own versions of Stinky Skunk and the Big Bad Wolf from the lavish Little Red Riding Hood series in an attempt at some form of continuity with the second feature, The Queen's Swordsman.
