ScreenGrab Friday: The Grabbening…


Wage slaves. Office monkeys. Toilers in the dark Satanic mills of late-capitalist cyber-labour. My gift to you? ScreenGrab Friday. 5 images (to begin with, others added later as you start to weep and struggle). From 5 films. Chosen to perplex and befuddle. Chosen, too, to distract you (albeit temporarily) from constant awareness of the grim inevitability of death. Yes. You will all die. ALL. DIE. Enjoy! Pop your answers in the comments section. Or on twitter. Or wherever.

#1 Scream Bloody Murder (Unsolved! It was brutally tough, in fairness).

#2 The Curse of the Cat People (Solved by Jason Hyde, via Facebook)

#3 Assault on Precinct 13 (Solved by @Fearganainim, via Twitter).

#4 The Skull (Solved by Jason Hyde, via Facebook)

#5 Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Solved by @Fearganainim, via Twitter).

Result: Jason Hyde: 2, @Fearganainim: 2. A deeply unsatisfying draw. Boo.

    Dan Smith (on Facebook) says Romero’s Martin for #1. Not right. But a decent guess.

    And #5 not The Getaway.!/Fearganainim/status/173120620136112128

    P.S: He’s also just suggested Thunderbolt and Lightfoot for #5. Not right. Also not right was my spelling of his username. Which is actually

    Jason Hyde: 2. @Fearganainim: 2.

    1 left.
