Silent Night, Bloody Night (Night of the Dark Full Moon, 1972) Mexican lobby card. I'm always reminded of the Night Gallery episode with Patrick O'Neal and that spider...I hate spiders, too.
I met Patrick O'Neal at a daylong seminar given by some Guru, at some institute in upstate New York, quite some years ago. I forget much of the event. Beyond the uncomfortable sitting posture for hours on end (no chairs), the tasteless vegan lunch (lots of sprouts and green things), and me and Mr. O'Neal standing in an interminable line to get to those sprouts and green things, I've buried much of the experience deep beneath my subconscious. I was dragged to it by a friend, who was motivated to do the dragging by her friend, who liked me a lot. I wonder where they are now.
I recall Mr. O'Neal seemed as perplexed as I was, but I don't know which friend of his dragged him to the event.
