Creepiness In the Air Reported By Creepy Classics/Monster Bash Reader

Hi Ron, Al from Alamogordo Reporting: You have received a lot of personal stories from Monster Bashers over the years of their experiences in the monster realm. I think I have a very unique one for you.

In 1972, I was 11 years old and skyjacked by the person below.

July 6, 1972 Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 389 from Oakland to Sacramento. I had the unique experience of being in the very back of the plane and actually saw him pull the gun from his pocket. It was scary and exciting at the same time. There were six of us in my family, one other male and the stewardess in the back with the skyjacker directly holding us at gunpoint. My mom was able to get the skyjacker to have us all moved to a safer area about half way through the flight, wwith only the man we didn't know remaining with the skyjacker. After the first negotiation, when he let us go, I was second to last person to get off the plane as my mom (last person) pushed/carried me off the plane (in a big hurry!). He did keep 28 single men as ongoing hostages before giving up with no fatalities. See the article above.

Now, how does this relate to Monster Bashers? This paper is the Saturday edition right after the skyjacking. This July is the 45th anniversary of this incident and the Saturday after is July 8th (and it’s coming fast!). This section of the paper just happens to have the Saturday TV schedule listing for July 8th of 1972. See below. In it were movies like:

10:00am  Atomic Agent

11:30am  The Devil Bat’s Daughter

12:00pm  Unknown Terror

  1:30pm  The Private Eyes (Bowery Boys)

  3:30pm   King of the Zombies

  7:00pm  The Monster of Piedras Blancas

  7:30pm  The Evil Brain From Outer space

                  The She Creature

11:00pm  The Fatal Hour  (Mr. Wong)

11:30pm  The Brides of Dracula

12:00mid  The Frozen Dead

                It was just amazing how many movies were available on only 12 channels. Who needed Video/DVD or the Internet when we had it so good every week? I am planning a Saturday July 8th marathon and watching most of these movies at the times listed as possible. I know you grew up with some of the same channels I had in Allentown and could have watched some of these, as I did, live 45 years ago.

Also a side note to the skyjacking. The day before my PSA skyjacking, there was another PSA skyjacking that was much more serious and turned deadly. 5 July 1972: Pacific Southwest 737-200. The skyjackers and a passenger were killed. The unique thing about this was, reportedly a passenger named Victor Sen Yung, yes Number 2 Son (of the Charlie Chan film series), was shot, but just injured during that skyjacking. I did say I thought this was a pretty unique story? Hope you do too.

     Thanks, Al  From Alamogordo

Al, all I can say is "wow." What a surreal memory I'm sure that is.

It's Always Nice...Bashers Report

I want to thank Rich for sending in the following letter...it's notes like this that make it all worth the hassle, the money output and the sweat....worthwhile:

Hi Ron from a Monster Basher here in MD! I’m sure you’re very busy with all the last minute Bash details, but I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all you and the Bash team do to put this event together. This will be my fourth Bash and I can’t wait for it to “unearth” every year! Thanks for giving Monster Kids a place to have fun and celebrate all things classic monsters!
We really appreciate all your hard work and many hours burning the midnight oil (hmm, like Dr. Frankenstein, right?) See in a few weeks!

Rich Shegogue
Germantown, MD

...and I want to thank Dan Wegrzynek for e-mailing me this:

Ron, your last CREEPY CLASSICS NEWS LETTER email did me in. I was just going to buy tickets at the door, but your story of being a kid, and buying the monster mag got to me. I've been kind of 'down' lately, and now I'm really looking forward to the Bash. Just retired March 9, and have to watch my pennies, but now I'm transformed into "FULL BASH MODE". You've got the power! - See you soon, Dan W.

...and Monster Kid Radio will be on hand too! This from Derek Koch at MK Radio:

My Monster Kid Radio listeners have all come together to send little ol' me to the Monster Bash this year . . . I didn't think I'd be able to pull it off with some heavy duty "real life" stuff that's happened over the past couple of months, but a number of MKR listeners and fans came together to make it happen, and now I CAN'T WAIT!

And you know I'm promoting the heck out of it on Monster Kid Radio! And afterward, I'll be talking about it for weeks - if not months, depending on what kind of audio and interviews I can get! - as well!

Hope you and yours are keeping your sanity, Ron . . . And see you soon!

New! King Kong 1933 Blu-Ray Limited Re-Isssue

We have a limited supply of the KING KONG (1933) re-issue Blu-Ray from Warner Brothers. Get yours before they're gorilla gone.

KING KONG (1933) - Blu-Ray Disc
Presented by Warner Home Video, the newly remastered King Kong features extensive bonus content, including a feature length documentary on Kong creator Merian C. Cooper, commentary by Ray Harryhausen, and a seven-part documentary that delves deeply into just about every aspect of the making of the film.

In this very special Blu-ray release, the newly remastered film is presented in its 1933 entirety and includes scenes that were originally considered too shocking for the 1938-1956 re-releases. With equal parts adventure, horror and old-fashioned romance, King Kong is a milestone of movie-making that has endured for more than seven decades. Named as one of the “100 Best Films of All Time” by Time Magazine, King Kong premiered in New York City in 1933. The film was an instant success, breaking box-office records to become one of the top moneymakers of the 1930s.
