Trivia

Robert Bloch had written an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft and Hazel Heald's short story "Out of the Aeons," about Ghatanothoa, a Great Old One from Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, that was not filmed. Alvin Sapinsley rewrote the adaptation as "Last Rites for a Dead Druid." Sapinsley's rewrite had nothing to do with the original story. See more »

Goofs

The clock in the saloon only chimes eight times for the 10:00 o'clock victim. See more »

Gunfighters & Curses
12 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

'The Waiting Room' - A group of gunfighters are hanging out in a saloon waiting for their turn to leave, which baffles the latest arrival, though he too will come to understand what is really going on... Obvious parable is a bit too heavy-handed. Is there a similar place for knife-fighters I wonder?

'Last Rites For A Dead Druid' - Bill Bixby("The Incredible Hulk") plays an affable man whose wife(played by Carol Lynley) brings home a druid's stone statue that resembles him, which proves to be a disastrous mistake for all concerned... Stylish if bleak tale is just too downbeat and unjust really, though Bixby makes it watchable.
