    First published in 1890 in the Lippincott’s Monthly magazine, this Gothic philosophical story offended England upon its release due to its lack of moralistic value.  500 words were excised from the text by the magazine editor and Wilde himself would be forced or face a jail sentence to take out certain scenes which would corrupt the moral majority

    Night of the Living Dead (1968)
     
    Directed by George Romero and starring Duane Johnson and Judith O’Dea, would give rise to the independent horror.  The film was made for $110,000 and shot outside of Philadephia.  The film would gross $30million upon its release.  A cult classic today and highly regarded as one of the best horror films of all time, upon its initial release, the critics were less than favourable.  
     
    Return of the Living Dead (1985)
     
    The 1985 American comedy horror film written and directed by Dan O’Bannon and starring Clu Gulagar, Thom Matthews and Linnea Quigley.  The film is the first film that would introduce some Zombie tropes such as fast moving, able to talk and the hunger for brains.  The soundtrack which includes bands such as The Cramps, The Damned, The Flesh Eaters and SSQ is considered one of the best post punk soundtracks of all times.

    Season 4: Episode 171 - DARK SHADOWS: The Christopher Pennock Interview.

    Season 4: Episode 171 - DARK SHADOWS: The Christopher Pennock Interview.

    Tom Dimaon interviews the wild boy Chris Pennock who lived his life that they he wanted to.  He was Dark Shadows resident bad boy but to top it off, he had the talent to back it up.  
     
    Pennock had been active for over 40 years starring on and off-Broadway, in repertory and experimental theater, and in many films and television shows.[2] He was perhaps best known for his run on the television show Dark Shadows in the early 1970s, playing multiple roles in various timelines. He also appeared in 1971 film spinoff Night of Dark Shadows.[2] He appeared in over 50 guest-starring roles on television from Melrose Place[2] to General Hospital, as well as numerous films, among them James Ivory's Savages (1972)[3] and Graeme Clifford's Frances (1982)[2] (starring Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard). He was a lifetime member of the Actors Studio.
    Pennock wrote and illustrated a continuing comic-book series about his experiences on the set of Dark Shadows. He lived with his wife in Idyllwild, California.[citation needed] He was known for his devotion to the Dzogchen school of Tibetan Buddhism.
    Pennock died on February 12, 2021
