#FBF: The “Adult Swimming with The Tall Man” Edition

You play a good game, boy, but the game is finished. Now… you watch Adult Swim!

In the year of 2004, Adult Swim summoned the late, great Angus Scrimm to ho-st a Halloween marathon of the freakiest episodes of one of Adult Swim’s freakiest shows: Aqua Teen Hunger Force!
Master Scrimm was at his Tall Man best, with a menacing glare and that wonderfully frightful voice. Dressed to kill in black, Scrimm knocks ’em dead with his signature grimaces and a few classic Phantasm quotes sprinkled about. Even in the goofiest setting, there’s nothing like Mr. Scrimm letting out a “BOY!” to freeze the blood and paralyze the soul!
Like Vincent Price before him, it’s clear that he had a “ball” with his ghoulish persona. Each bumper delivers a chill and a wink in a way that only a true Prince of Terror could pull off. Whether in a funeral home or a late night cable spot, The Tall Man knew how to deliver the creeps. Who else but Scrimm could make a shake, some meat, and an order of fries seem so ghastly?

Check out the bumpers/commercials below……if you have the balls! πŸ˜‰ xoxo

Random Side Note: I totally had a thing for Meatwad back in the day…#MME πŸ˜‰ xoxo

The Tall Man is one of the baddest badass baddies of the the 1970s, so who better to pimp out Fangoria than this morbid mortician?

That’s Fright, Kinky Ho-mies! Back in the late ’80s, The Tall Man himself suggested we subscribe to the classic ho-rror magazine Fangoria and do you really want to argue with this fiend? πŸ™‚

Actor Angus Scrimm reprises his iconic role as the terrifying Tall Man for the noble cause of selling awesome Fangoria issues! Not only did Mr. Scrimm star in this spot, but he also helped write it! (Boo-ty AND braaaaaaaaains?? #SWOON! :))This nifty little terror treat was filmed Β at the same mausoleum as the original Phantasm.Β The shoot went so seemlessly, it inspired Fangoria to venture into films with Mindwarp, also starring Scrimm!
