Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 29

As we get ever closer to Halloween, TCM is increasing their daily offerings of fright. You can see today's full line-up here. But my pick is Roger Corman's horror comedy A Bucket of Blood, airing at 2:30PM. It stars Dick Miller as Walter Paisley, a busboy at a beatnik coffee house who wants nothing more than to be an artist. One problem: he has no talent. Until, that is, a murder turns things around.

Dick Miller (who is still alive!) went on to play characters named Walter Paisley several more times throughout as his career, primarily in movies from director Joe Dante. But this first Walter will always be the best Walter.

Be a nose!!

A Bucket of Blood is one of those movies you can find online pretty easily, including on Amazon Prime and YouTube. So put on that beret, load it up, and get ready to snap your fingers in approval.
