Creepy Santa Doll

I know that I’ve been relying on music videos based around the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s Christmas albums over the last few years, but I’m in the mood for a change. As much as I love their work, I don’t want to give away to much of the HPLHS’ hard work away. With this in …

Still More Christma(dnes)s

To borrow a phrase from Veronique Chevalier, Ghoultide Greetings and Hapless Horrordaze! I hope you enjoy the above image; it’s a painting called “In the Wild North” by Ivan Shishkin. I think it perfectly captures the duality of the season. If you look at it one way, it’s a beautiful winter’s night. But if you …

Guest Blog: 13 Horror Disappointments – 2013 Edition

 13 Horror Disappointments:  2013 Edition by KEVIN T. FISCHER  It’s easy to look back on the year and reminisce on all the wonderful, proud moments in horror.  But there sure were a lot of questionable and downright mucky things going on in the genre as well. Despite our best efforts to forget them, these thirteen …

13 Days: Almost Made It

  There won’t be an update from me tomorrow. I’ll be travelling, the first of two trips this month. I like visiting other places but the work of getting there drives a slow metaphorical nail into my left temple. Perhaps that’s one of my main issues: I want to be in Prague but I don’t …

13 Days: Christmas List

Everyone I know is getting gift cards this year. Nobody gave me a Christmas list this year so in lieu of all those missing, here’s mine: Christmas List I want less remakes. At this point, it all seems like pandering to an older audience that can’t be impressed or attracting a newer audience that isn’t …

Then Allen Hopps (from the legendary Stiltbeast Studios) has just the project for you: Oh, and did I neglect to mention that he has other videos showing how to …

13 Days: Why Didn’t You Put Up That Xmas Tree?

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the last hour. The song is less than two minutes long. You can do the math. If there was egg nog in the apartment, I’m pretty sure I’d be drinking to it. There’s something just powerful in the line “Are you gonna fuck it up this …

13 Days: My View From Here

  This is the view from where I work. While I would like to say that sporadic writing for a blog and curating a weekly podcast of monster music would be a way to make a living, truth is I have to take my alter-ego out in the world and do office work. Lately, I’ve …

13 Days: Let Me Sleep

Trigger Warning: Pearl Jam Missed an update. Surprise, surprise. Can’t say I’m a big fan of Pearl Jam. I like a couple songs off of ‘Yield’ and I hear ‘No Code’ is a good enough album, though I used to have an ex who used that album name as a username on a old internet …

The Creepmas That Almost Wasn’t: A Gdl16 Flashback

Merry Creepmas! For those not in the know, Creepmas is a humorous, web-based celebration of Christmas (with a focus on the spooky) during the first thirteen days of December. Why? To strike back at how Christmas keeps encroaching upon Halloween’s domain every year. Having had far to many experiences of stores going into full Christmas …

13 Days: Pod Nog

What am I doing this weekend? Going to try to find Black Christmas so I can watch it. It’s one of those I haven’t gotten around to seeing yet. I make no bones about it that I am not the most educated man when it comes to horror. I consider myself a novice in movies. It …

13 Days: Last Minute Assassination

I’m busy putting together the next episode of the podcast. Much akin to last minute shopping, I’m rushing around. So here’s a live version of the song I mentioned two posts ago:
