Fingers from the Grave

Yikes, looks like somebody just won't stay buried!

     This week I used another Martha recipe, this time for Ladies' Fingers. Although, I think mine look much more disturbing than hers, with their bony knuckles and unvarnished, rotting nails...

     These dreadful digits remind me of the final scare from the movie Carrie (1976). Carrie White is a very unfortunate teenage girl. She's the daughter of a religious fanatic and everyone at school hates her for existing. It just so happens that Carrie also has telekinetic powers, which she uses to exact revenge against the whole town. After the ordeal is over, a surviving classmate is racked with guilt at the way Carrie was treated, and visits Carrie's grave in her dreams. As she kneels down to lay flowers on the grave, an undead arm reaches out of the earth and grabs hold of her. Gotcha! She wakes up, screaming. This is one of my favourite jump scenes, and I am not a fan of jump scenes. I wonder if they'll try to do something like it in the remake that's coming out soon. We'll see.

If you've got a taste for terror... stay tuned for more Terrifying Treats.
