Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Return

Those subscribed to the site’s Facebook and Twitter feeds will undoubtedly recall our behind-the-scenes woes from earlier in the summer. Although I’m happy to report we’re back in the game, I must admit a twinge of sadness over the lost time I could have been spending on getting content done in advance. In addition to …

Music to Game By VII

Similar to what I did last year, I’m going to take a look at the entries from my 2016 “Music to Haunt By” review series with a focus on their use in tabletop role-playing games. The use of music in gaming sessions has changed a lot since the days when people would crank up some …

Steve Wang

Self-taught artist and sculptor Steve Wang was born in 1966, but moved with his family from Taiwan to the United States in 1975. Thanks to exposure to Halloween (which was largely unknown in Taiwan at the time), he quickly became enamored with both collecting and making masks. Factor in a love of tokusatsu shows like …

There’s also a lot of zombie-related love songs this time around, so be prepared for stuff even mushier than brains. Be sure to click on the link on the left …

Monster Mania: Music From The Classic Godzilla Films (1954-1995)

Randy Miller Official Site Monster Mania: Music From The Classic Godzilla Films (1954-1995), Varѐse Sarabande 1998 Up until 1998, American Godzilla fans who wanted to listen to the uninterrupted music from the films they love had very few options.

Required Reading: Black History Month Edition

Remember when I took a look at Dark Dreams: A Collection of Horror and Suspense by Black Writers back in 2010? Well, it turns out there have been several sequels! The other installments in the series are: Whispers in the Night, The Ancestors and Voices From The Other Side. All of which are well worth …

Splendorman

It’s Women In Horror Recognition Month and I have the perfect video to celebrate! It’s a hilarious Slender Man parody (more specifically, the Slender Man mythos set up in the Marble Hornets web series) which you can watch thanks to Neil Cicierega: So why is a video about Splendorman that was uploaded by a man …

Jiangshi Comedy

The English translation for “jiangshi” seems to be pretty flexible. I have seen them referred to as vampires, ghouls, ghosts and even zombies in various English language resources. One such example of the “zombie” usage comes to us from this hilarious prank video by TMD Shanghai: Unlike many prank videos using the modern depiction of …

What Gives?

Toho has been paying money out of their own pocket for English language dubs of Godzilla movies for ages and American distributors rarely create their own Godzilla dubs these days. So why hasn’t Toho edited together and dubbed the Godzilla-related episodes of the television series Zone Fighter into movies they can license overseas? It’s been …

TGIF13 VII: Jason Burgers

Remember the “2 for 1 Burger Sale” scene from Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday with those hockey mask hamburger patties? I tried making one on two separate occasions and my patties always broke apart when I tried flipping them over! Maybe this was why the movie only showed them prior to their being …

Hanukkah Horror

I was originally going to discuss the slasher movie Hanukkah today, but there’s a problem. Its official Facebook page has been inactive for awhile and the teaser trailer is sadly no longer available online. It’s a shame, since there was a lot of interest in the project and its “Get Torahfied” tagline was hilarious. But …

The Pumpkin Dance: Christmas Edition

First I shared the original “Pumpkin Dance” video. Then I jumped ahead and shared the Valentine’s Day-themed sequel. Which is funny, since that particular video was actually the last of the trilogy. So let’s look at the Christmas-themed first sequel as uploaded by KXVO 10:00 News: Here’s hoping we’ll be seeing more installments in this …

Christma(dnes)s VII

It may have taken me longer than usual to assemble this year’s selection of frightfully festive fun, but I think the sheer volume of material I dug up was worth it. After all, why should I just focus on the Phantasm ornament or the “Krampus in the Corner” when there’s so much more out there? …

A Fangsgiving Comic

The above comic by Elmer Andrews Bushnell originally appeared with the caption “The Spirits of Halloween Are Abroad” when it was published in the Cincinnati Times-Star and Cartoons Magazine. Sadly, the text looked too awful to use when I tried posting a direct scan of it. Although Cartoons Magazine included it in their “Golden October” …
