Attack of the 50ft She-Mummy

27 Jun

Look at this Minx! Never heard of Yvette Vickers until today. I was processing some data at work when the words mummy, playmate and 50ft woman jumped off the page.  The horrific tale was featured in a newspaper clipping I had to process.

Wood Paneling never looked better.

So the story goes – Yvette Vickers’ body was found on April 27th in her home. The 82 year old actress and former playboy playmate passed away and her body wend undiscovered for almost a year! Her neighbour noticed Vickers’ landscaping was not being kept up so they took a peak inside and what did they find? A FUCKING MUMMY! Kind of ironic that the cult film darling, now mummy, leaves us with one last horror-hurrah.

Yvette Vickers starred in cult films like Attack of the 50-Foot Woman (1958) and Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959).
