  • My favourite of these treats was The Skeleton of Mrs. Morales (1960), which concerns a taxidermist whose manipulative, sex-censoring hyper-religious wife seems determined to wipe the blithe smile off his beaming, liquor-loving face until he’s had enough and begins to look at her as a future subject for his work. It all feels very Mexican, as long as you ignore the fact that it’s based on an Arthur Machen story, The Islington Mystery.
