This is a horribly frightening account. You might call it a FRANKENwitness.
“Mad Mike” Stockwell is normally fearless in his Gospel presentations with live people, but this time he met his match with the undead. If you have the courage, click to read this spooky, scary, awful encounter that has never before been attempted… nor ever will be again! (Make sure you read this with the lights on.)
We are about to unfold the story of Frankenstein, a man of science who sought to create a man after his own image without reckoning upon God. It is one of the strangest tales ever told. It deals with the two great mysteries of creation – life and death. I think it will thrill you. It may shock you. It might even – horrify you. So if any of you feel that you do not care to subject your nerves to such a strain, now’s your chance to – uh, well, we warned you.—From the introduction to the 1931 film “Frankenstein.”
This was a monster task performed by a Jesus freak. Mad Mike, the Long Island Loudmouth was up to it on Brand Blvd. during the 2008 Ambassadors’ Academy….
The horror! The horror! Would this mutant listen to the Word that was preached? It depended on where he got his ears. Were they snatched from the grave of an atheist? If so, the message was falling on death ears.
The behemoth, of corpses made, was alive. Alive! He understood the message—that in a previous incarnation he was a liar, a thief, a blasphemer, with Christ being the only means of salvation from Hell—but can the dead repent? Listen somebody—anybody! Can the dead repent?
He turned. The beast turned! He could take it no longer. The undead would remain dead in his sin and trespasses, without hope, only to wreak havoc upon the walking dead of the earth. Into the great darkness he vanished. Forever.
He wanted his mummy.
The last words of James Whale, the director of “Frankenstein” and “Bride of Frankenstein” were written on a suicide note:
“The future is just old age and illness and pain… I must have peace and this is the only way.” — He was found dead, floating in his backyard pool. The cause of death still stands as unsolved although a high level of alcohol was found in his bloodstream.The painful last years of his life in Hollywood, where he was one of the few celebrities to live openly acknowledging his homosexuality, were depicted by Ian McKellen in Gods and Monsters.
Died: May 29, 1957
