Pigmares and Parodies
PIGMARES: PORCINE POEMS OF THE SILVER SCREEN by Doug Cushman. Charlesbridge, 2012.
Doug Cushman offers up a clever parody of monster movies in his latest collection of poetry. Watch "Frankenswine" or "Porker from the Black Lagoon" or perhaps "Pig Kong." Of course, if readers are not familiar with some of the creature features being parodied, this might not resonate as much as it will with readers who are already fans of those great old B movies of the past. <356>
