My Night With The Evil Streaks (And The Ten Foot Polecats)

Here kitty, kitty...

Marlborough, MA is a small city nestled deep Middlesex County, which H.P. Lovecraft once briefly referred to as “a western Massachusetts back-water” in his essay “Supernatural Horror in Literature.” At one point, Marlborough’s territory had included Northborough, Southborough, Westborough and Hudson but its size dwindled as each of said areas eventually split off to form …

Great Classic Suspense

Yellow journalism? Hardly!

Although the name might make one think of a collection of episodes from the famous old time radio series, this is actually a reissue of a Tangled Web Audio release featuring Geraint Wyn Davies narrating classic short stories (although AudioGo has released a collection of episodes from the British version of Suspense). As was the …

A Night With The Jersey Devil

According to this, the song was originally released as a special download via Bruce Springsteen’s official website on Halloween in 2008, as both a bit of spooky fun and as a tribute to his home state’s most infamous urban legend. A music video for it appeared on the deluxe edition DVD of Springsteen’s Working on …

Free (Legal) Download: The Tunnel

Crikey!

Back when the “Free (Legal) Download” series was first started, none of the staff had any idea that it would actually turn out to be a series. While the first two installments were devoted to movies that are only available online, the subject of this installment is a much different story. For you see, The …

More Free Horror Movie Commentaries

It’s been quite some time since I last offered some links to free horror movie commentaries here. Thankfully, I’ve since found several more free commentaries to make up for it.

Name That Film (Please)

Every horror fan has at least one movie they have hazy memories of, but can’t remember the title. I have had several over the years, but I eventually managed to use Google-Fu to identify all but one of them. Every possible attempt I’ve made to identify it has failed, so I hope you can help …

I’m Not Dead

You haven’t seen much of me around the Local in awhile and there’s a very good reason for that. You see, I collapsed and was temporarily unconscious one night in January. Accounts very as to how long I was out, but it was definitely well under a minute. I was rushed to the hospital and …

Spooky Saint Patrick’s Day Goodies

Today seems like the perfect time to share the following bit of news: Lionsgate and the WWE are teaming up to reboot the Leprechaun franchise. It seems safe to assume that Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl will be replacing Warwick Davis and that the much-rumored “Leprechaun goes west” and “Chucky vs. Leprechaun” films have been shelved. If …

Labretta Suede & the Motel 6, DUMB & DIRTY

Labretta Suede and the Motel 6, Dumb & Dirty Official Site    Let’s face it – there’s a widespread pandemic of men not having any game anymore. I liken it to the advent of modern video gaming, funny enough, most notably with the introduction of the X-Box. Gaming became less an outlet of gamers and …
