For the record, it wasn’t me …

What evil, despicable, fanatic would do something like this? I mean, besides me.

In what sounds like a scene from one of his legendary horror films, the head of Nosferatu director FW Murnau, who died in 1931, has been stolen from his family plot in a cemetery in Germany.

The grave-robbing occurred in Stahnsdorf, about 12 miles south-west of central Berlin, according to Variety. The graves of Murnau’s brothers were reportedly not disturbed.

Wax residue is said to have been found near the grave, suggesting that candles had been lit, and a possible occult motive for the theft.

My morning routine

Lately I wake up with blood on me, sometimes small drops, sometimes nearly covered in it. But I don’t have any cuts on me. Weird.

Shipment of 18 severed heads snagged by paperwork problem

Chicago Sun-Times:

The heads were shipped from Rome as cargo on a Lufthansa Airlines flight, arriving at O’Hare about one week before Christmas.

“They were properly preserved and tagged as human specimens,” said Tony Brucci, chief investigator for the medical examiner’s office.

Brucci said U.S. Customs officials at O’Hare initially held up the shipment, when they found the paperwork to be “a little confusing.” Then the containers were X-rayed, and that’s when officials discovered what was inside, Brucci said.

Brian Bell, a spokesman with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said earlier Tuesday that the specimens appear to be legitimate medical samples.

“There’s no issue with the transportation of body parts for medical purposes,” Bell said. “There’s nothing against the law that says you cannot ship them, provided you have the right documentation.”

While Bell said he has never before fielded questions about a large package of human body parts, such shipments are not without precedent, he noted.

“Everybody here is ‘Oh my gosh, you got a box of heads’ and everybody thinks that it’s unheard of,” Bell said. “It is a potentially legitimate medical shipment. We’ve seen it at various ports in the nation.”

I know what you mean. Who hasn’t had problems arise when shipping decapitated heads?

The best horrific music

The best song ever in a horror movie is Stella by Starlight in 1944’s The Uninvited. When artists as diverse as Itzhak Perlman, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis and a host of others covered the song, I don’t think that’s even subject to debate. The next that comes to mind is the simple, haunting score by John Carpenter for Halloween. Goblin is used to great effect in Susperia. What else is your favorite horror movie music?
