Well this is beyond creepy. The Los Angeles Times reports that Yvette Vickers, star of the schlock sci-fi (schli-fi?) classic “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman” (1958) was found dead in her Los Angeles home last Wednesday. But not just any kind of dead: mummified dead.

Vickers, who was 82, became a recluse after her Hollywood career, which ended in the early 1990s. According to a friend quoted in the Times, she was convinced she was being stalked, and became increasingly paranoid. With no immediate survivors — she was married and divorced twice — Vickers had no one looking in on her. So when neighbors finally became suspicious of the mail piling up outside her house, they were the ones who discovered her body, which was “so decomposed that it was unrecognizable,” according to People. Police say that the condition of Vickers’ body indicates she was dead for nearly a year when she was found. They don’t suspect foul play.

“Attack of the 50 Foot Woman” is one of the seminal American films in the B-movie renaissance of the 1950s. Vickers played the evocatively named Honey Parker, the mistress of the 50 Foot Woman’s husband and the object of her rage. Vickers also appeared in the Roger Corman-produced film “Attack of the Giant Leeches” from 1959, not nearly as beloved as “50 Foot Woman,” at least until it was spoofed on an episode of “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” Her other credits included “Reform School Girl” (1957) and a brief role in “Hud” (1963). It is a shame she had been forgotten; tragically, in more ways than one.

They say that bringing a child into this world is the most treasured and life-fulfilling thing you can do. But once sacrificing all your time, energy, and money into a marginally grateful person wears thin, there’s not much left for fulfillment. And as three moms contending with carpools and PTA meetings, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn reject the entire notion of modern motherhood and vow to become Bad Moms, a new film by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Watch Mila Kunis and her pals join forces against motherhood and uptight school administrator Christina Applegate in the NSFW trailer below. And be sure to catch Mila in her younger days on That ’70s Show every Monday and Tuesday starting at 6P.

And would it be the end of the world if you found a better job and settled down with someone nice? But no, it’s fine. She’ll make do with one of these cards, featuring characters from Portlandia, Maron and Comedy Bang! Bang!. Check them out below, and be good to mom this year.

5 Times Maron’s Dave Anthony Had the Perfect Response

Maron returns May 4th at 9P on IFC.

Dave Anthony, standup and podcaster extraordinaire, has stealthily become a one-liner machine on Maron, playing Marc’s deadpan “frenemy.” While Dave may often say the wrong thing, we always seem to relate to him in some secret, shameful way. Before you catch Dave on the season premiere of Maron this Wednesday, May 4th at 9P, check out a few times it felt like he was living our life — and messing it up just as much as we are.

1. That moment when we realize no one is listening to our podcast.

2. Or when we remember that feelings are just nature’s way of saying it’s time to eat more ice cream.

3. That feeling you get when you realize you’ll do anything if someone else is paying.

4. For those times when we want to fight the power.

5. And of course, for those times when we realize that life is about accomplishing the little things.
