Music to Game By

Although Free RPG Day has long since come and gone, I have still decided to revisit the use of music in gaming sessions. Since I last discussed the subject, I have found that the amount of RPG tie-in music is much larger than previously thought. Some soundtrack albums seem to be inspired by games rather …

The Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver

I'm (Not) With Busey

It seemed like an ordinary night at the Scientific Research Institute of Homicidal Baked Goods. Well, except for how FBI agent Clarissa Darling visited to try questioning the Gingerdead Man, who is freed when confused animal rights activists arrive under the mistaken assumption they’re animal test subjects. While making his escape, the Gingerdead Man stumbles …

Killwanzaa

As many faithful readers know, much effort has been put into finding a way to do a horror-related Kwanzaa article with little results. Why? Well, we here at Gravedigger’s Local 16 try to be all inclusive and more importantly, one does not come up with an awesome name like “Killwanzaa” and not use it. That …

A Mythos Carol

Seeing as how I celebrated Christmas with a Youtube video featuring a Lovecraftian Christmas carol by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society last year, I thought it would be fun to do it again this year. This year’s selection is a fan-made music video made by GodfreyTemple,: which was apparently approved by the HPLHS: For more …

Spine Chillers

Didn't I see that mask in a "Costume Crazyness" article?

Back when I wrote “Christma(dnes)s” in 2010, I used a quote from the packaging of Spine Chillers to show that ghost stories are a Christmas tradition in England. In fact, here’s the quote: “Five exciting dramatizations of classic ghost stories, introduced by Derek Jacobi as the voice of M. R. James. Widely acknowledged as a …

Stone Golem

Chanukkah started today after the sun set and what better way to celebrate the Festival of Lights on a horror website than by looking at the legendary Jewish monster the golem? As Weird Jon’s planned article on the subject was put on hold due to time constraints, I thought I’d step in to celebrate with …

More Christma(dnes)s

***

In the spirit of last year’s “Christma(dnes)s,” I thought I would share another collection of both weird and wonderful Christmas-related links: The Abominable N. Oremac got me into the Christmas spirit by sending me a link to an article about a Christmas tree in Japan that’s shaped like Godzilla and sprays smoke from “its” mouth. …
