Watching Necropolis

[The following occurred a few days ago, after the writer decided to search the “Impact” OnDemand folder for newly posted horror movies. WARNING: Minor Spoilers] AMM: Hhmm…Necropolis sounds interesting.

H.P. Brickcraft

Thanks to many childhood experiences of making original characters (and monsters) with Legos, I have a great appreciation for people who figure out creative ways to make things with those nifty little plastic bricks. So you can imagine my reaction to EvilJester1214’s Lego/Lovecraft ad parody:   I tried searching for any Cthulhu Lego how-tos, but …

The Angry Beavers: The Day the World Got Really Screwed Up

Nicktoons generally have at least one Halloween episode.  Doug, The Mighty B, Catscratch, SpongeBob SquarePants and Rocko’s Modern Life have had one.  I hardly need to mention Danny Phantom in this paragraph. None of the aforementioned shows can hold a candle to The Angry Beavers‘ late-October 1998 episode, “The Day the World Got Really Screwed …

Horror’s MARVELous Influence

It just occurred to me just how much Marvel Comics seems to have been influenced by the horror genre when it came to creating some of their superhero characters. And no, I’m not talking about how many of them either made their debut in or had stories published in former horror/sci-fi comics such as Tales …

Free D&D: 2nd Edition

My monthly visit GdL’s Google Analytics page revealed that August’s “Free D&D” entry seems to have gotten fairly popular. So as a special treat, here’s another batch of free downloads culled from Wikipedia: Ravenloft II: The House on Gryphon Hill should be of interest to horror fans who play RPGs. Similarly, Palace of the Silver …

You might know that Ween wrote a song for Spongebob Squarepants, and you might be cool to know that The Ghastly Ones did the music for the Halloween episode. Perhaps then, you might remember a live-action episode sandwiching Tom Kinney in a pirate costume in between cartoons, which ended with this song. Just discovered that …

Channel 68 Memories

Maybe it’s due to writing about some video rental store memories in my last post or maybe it’s just nostalgia for the “the old days” sparked by my dissatisfaction with the place I’m currently stuck in, but I’ve been thinking a lot about my past lately. More specifically, I’ve been thinking about Channel 68 (aka …

2010 (corpses to bury)

(and only two cups of coffee left.) Goodness Ghoulies, where has my head been? Weird Jon and the Atomic Mystery Monster come back and I disappear. Dig, dig, dig. 2009 ended with the finale of Season 2 of Transylvania TV and the X-mas special of Spook House Dave. Check them out. If you scrounge up …

Bloody New Fear!

I honestly was going to call this entry “Bloody New Year,” but I didn’t want people to think that I was going to review British schlockmeister Norman J. Warren’s Bloody New Year (also known as Time Warp Terror in the UK). Instead, all I’m offering is a trailer (thanks to Unhinged1980s’ channel), some memories and …
