Ooooh. Spooky. Just in time for Halloween. The Royal Ontario Museum is hosting a horror-themed exhibition: It’s Alive! Classic Horro and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection.
Akemi’s reaction upon glimpsing this classic film poster for The Creature from the Black Lagoon: “He looks like one of the Real Wives of Beverly Hills”.
Haven’t watched the show, so I’ll take her word for it.
This little guy appeared in a movie called The Saucer People. When Akemi asked why they were called the saucer people, I explained that they flew around in an alien ship then referred to as a flying saucer. Also, they were big tea drinkers.
The humorless security guard looked so much like Bela Lugosi.
Day of the Triffids. Love the novel. Does anyone else feel John Wyndham doesn’t get enough love?
Actual prop from the movie Frankenstein.
This Boris Karloff lookalike had the most impenetrable stare.
Kirk Hammett’s themed guitar collection. Did I mention he’s lead guitarist for Metallica?
Imagine waking up at midnight to find this spooky character standing over your bed?
We capped off the day with Japanese barbecue in the company of Jeff and Barb.
