Movies You're Dying to See

This is a quick in-and-out.

Ha! You thought I was dead. Unless, of course, you follow me on Flickr. I'm still putting up pictures. I haven't been doing much writing of late, but that may change as a publisher has come sniffing. In the meantime, a resumption of a couple columns I did in the past listing movies containing cemetery scenes. This edition of the list starts a little over two years ago and is in the order of seeing them, oldest at the top. The most recent movie on the list, The Sicilian Girl, has an extensive night scene in a cemetery beautifully lit by candles.

I'm so pleased to hear that you are still among the living. I truly miss your wit, snark and wisdom on all things cemetery-ish.

Oh and your wonderful photos. I've missed you!

Wonderful posts (about cemetery markers and movies!) But you missed one of my favorites: "Expiration Date." Filmed in Seattle by a friend of my ex-husband... All I will tell you is that it's about death by milk truck! Let me know how you liked it!
