Vampira, R.I.P.

I expect to get back to a normal blogging schedule soon, now that I'm learning to adjust to my new computer. B-Fest is coming up this weekend. A regular feature of this annual event is the midnight showing of Edward D. Wood, Jr.'s spellbinding 1959 release PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. One of the film's stars, Maila Nurmi aka Vampira, passed away last week. Much has been written about her death, but Chris Stangl's piece is perhaps the best I've read so far.
