FRIGHT NIGHT

FRIGHT NIGHT

We’re truly delighted that you’ve come. I mean, anyone can go to the movies or a night double-header or a discotheque or what-have-you, but only the tasteful visit a place like this. Their taste, of course, must of necessity run toward the slightly odd or, at the very least, the bizarre. That’s what we deal with here: the bizarre—the expected unexpected, if you will.
As in the case of this painting here: it’s called “Fright Night,” featuring that beloved star of stage and screen . . . the name eludes me, but there is, you’ll note, a familiarity about it. Actually, this fiery apparition is the sort of thing that appears in strange houses, because that’s what this painting depicts: a very strange house—and you’re welcome to share it with us, because this is the Night Gallery.
