One of my favorite websites to frequent is Flashbak, which specializes in posting photos of all kinds of things from the past. Their slogan is “Everything Old Is New Again.” A recent post about Mexican pulp art looked like something Robert McCammon would enjoy, so I sent him the link. He wrote back and asked me to post the link. He said:

“I’ve always enjoyed Mexican horror films. In fact the first horror movie I ever saw (on TV) was a wickedly scary Mexican flick that I remember had something to do with a condemned criminal who found himself being reincarnated and going through the same hanging over and over again. Anyway, he had a beast-like makeup and to a little kid it was a real fright-fest. This art to me speaks to what has always been the bizarre and nightmarish (though oddly beautiful) nature of the Mexican horror film.”

Enjoy!
