Flesh Feast poster

The Skeletal Spotlight shines this time on:
The "Flesh Feast" poster art

You gotta love that rotting corpse hanging from the ceiling. They just don't make posters like that any more! From 1970, this el-cheapo filmed-in-Florida flick exploits the natural gag-and-ick factor of maggots, while providing ex-actress Veronica Lake a small check to pay for some extra dog food she might have needed. Surely the script didn't entice her to come out of retirement! I mean, what self-respecting actress would want that as the last movie on their filmography?

Some of the other actors names are interesting... Yanka Mann? That's an unfortunate name right there!! Great artwork on this poster tho!!

Patrick,

Good to hear from you! Yes, that does sound like the screen name for a "handy" porn actress, doesn't it?

I love this poster. I haven't seen the film but have looked into it and like the Hitler vengeance angle

One that was seriously down on her luck in the final years of her disease riddled, alcohol poisoned life. I've read two books about Veronica Lake, and both end on the loneliest, most depressing notes in Hollywood history. She definitely deserved better.
