You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Universal Monsters Invade Homes

In the days before home video of any kind and certainly before streaming, the classic Universal Monster films could be viewed at home. Well, portions of them could at least, for through the famed purveyor of 8mm and Super 8mm and Universal-owned Castle Films, classics such as Frankenstein and Dracula could be viewed (in edited-down versions of approximately 9 minutes) in the comfort (quickly replaced with creepiness) of the viewers' own homes, via a projector and screen. Enjoy the specially prepared Castle Films cover art from across the years. And if you are on Facebook, please join the Castle Films Facebook page from which I borrowed (stole, in other words) this art arrangement.

I remember a projector, as a kid, and reels. But I don't remember ever seeing these. I think I was the only one in my family with a taste for horror, but too young to do anything about it.

I remember renting them on VHS.
