The Haunted Hulk Toy

In the latest NaschyCast we had a listener write in and defend the third of Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead films, THE GHOST GALLEON (1973). He made a spirited attempt to paint the movie as a misunderstood classic (of a sort) and, in so arguing, pushed Troy and I to commit to covering the film as our next Beyond Naschy episode. That should be interesting!

One of the things this fellow singled out as a possible reason for his affection for this most impoverished of the four Blind Dead movies was a childhood toy - The Haunted Hulk. This appears to be a toy made by MPC in the 1960's that certainly does put one in mind of the ghostly ship at the center of that film. Check it out -

Now, if only Ossorio's tale had featured a giant spider as well as undead Templar Knights!
