The Mummy’s Sabbatical’s own Benito Cereno is an expert on many things, including Christmas Lore, Antiquity, Comics, and—most appropriate to the season—the expansive genre of Horror. And he’s written a piece for “Horror Month” over at the Robot’s Pajamas about master huckster William Castle and his famous piece of cinema gimmickry, The Tingler. It’s worth a read. Benito is pretty danged good with words.
Want more of Benito’s words when they aren’t locked in a death struggle for dominance with my own petty scrawlings? He’s a regular writer over at Comics Alliance. He scripts a lot of trivia primer videos for pop culture touchstones, but I’d especially point you to his tributes of great cartoonists past, which are always 1000% on point.
A good way to keep up with all his doings (and to enjoy his wonderful, hilarious, erudite answers to readers’ questions) is to follow his Tumblr, Burgeoning Lads of Science.
