In certain respects, I think our anthology promises the same things promised by the sinister, flickering fleapits that were our inspiration: strange and possibly shocking features that you are never going to see in any of the more brightly-lit and hygienically-maintained multiplexes of the comic medium, and a lingering atmosphere that clings to you long after you’ve stumbled out blinking into the daylight. -- Alan Moore

This one actually repulsed me - made me shudder.

It feels a little like a residue left from Moore's in-depth researching into Lovecraft; another story in which the characters are assaulted and driven mad by a creature from outside their world, so much so that they are incapable of conceiving its true nature and utterly helpless to do anything about it.

Almost a pity you omitted the single panel in which Mr. Crawley notes how his name evokes a snake or a centipede, while looking (with disgust?) at Auntie Millie's hair...

As great of a writer Alan Moore is, every time I read a quote from him, I want to punch him

So, now Alan Moore is writing comics about the existential horror of... film getting stuck in a projector and melting because of the heat from the lamp? And a stray hair sticking in front of the lens and staying in the picture? Eldritch Tales of the AV Squad?
