27 years later, spooky "Evilspeak" poster comes in handy

Check out this movie poster -- scary, right? Well, I sure thought so back when I was 11 years old. The film in question? "Evilspeak", released in 1981 and starring the ubiquitous Clint Howard (well, he's in all of brother Ron's movies, anyway). I've never actually seen "Evilspeak" -- and given the disastrous reviews, I should probably leave it that way -- but man ... the poster sure stuck with me. (OK, so it looks a bit hokey now ... guess you had to be there.)

In any case, the old "Evilspeak" poster turned out to be the perfect, inspirational touch for my "10 terrifying tech tales" on Y! Tech today -- and at the risk of tooting my own horn, it was a blast to write (and luckily, I had plenty of material thanks to my hard-working fellow bloggers). Please take a look -- and thank you, spooky "Evilspeak" poster. May you continue to scare the bejesus out of me.
