Music to Haunt By: Legion of Shadows

jerryvayne

Nox Arcana Official Site Legion of Shadows, Monolith Graphics 2013 As you may recall from my last Nox Arcana review, I had to pass on reviewing the band’s 10th anniversary album due to a scheduling issue. Thankfully said issue has been since resolved and I can finally cover this musical tribute to Nox Arcana’s fanbase. …

Scared Stiff by the Party Monsters: Elvira’s Pinball Adventures

It seems like I’ve always known about Elvira. I know that can’t be possible, but at the same time I can’t pinpoint the exact moment I learned of her existence. I remember learning about her pinball game Elvira and the Party Monsters during one of the same family vacations that led to me discovering Rampage …

Lola Falana: The Vampira That Never Was

In 1981, Los Angeles TV station KHJ-TV was in the market for a horror host program. Although they had success with Fright Night in the past, its host Seymour (played by Larry Vincent) had passed away in 1975. Then someone got the idea to revive the program that started off the horror host boom: The …

The Casket Girls, “Sleepwalking”

Since it’s Women in Horror Recognition Month, I finally have a way to introduce the subject of today’s article. Seriously, I had no idea how to properly start this article (despite having the rest of it finished). It’s probably because it’s so hard for me to pinpoint just why I love the song “Sleepwalking.” From …

Papercraft Jiangshi

papercraftjiangshi

As much as I enjoyed last year’s Jiangshi inspired papercraft project, I wanted to focus on something a little more traditional this year. But it turns out that finding downloadable Chinese hopping vampire papercraft models online is much harder than one might think. I had originally wanted to showcase this cool jiangshi papercraft, but was …

Free (Legal) Download: Tyrannovision – Year One

tyrannovision

Baron Dixon wears many hats. He’s an artist, musician animator, poet and has had numerous on and off screen duties on indie horror films like American Alien and Blood Bath of the Bat-Beast. He’s also an evil dictator. Okay, he only plays one (among many other roles) on the beautifully bizarre sci-fi web series Tyrannovision, …

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

418px-Shishkin_na_severe_dikom1

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 …

Bubbe’s Hannah Cat (Hanukkat)

veroniquechevalier

The woman in the above image by famous steampunk artist Brian Kesinger is none other than Veronique Chevalier. If you’re into the steam scene, then you are certainly no stranger to her humorous songs and extravagant performances. One year before she released her debut debut album Polka Haunt Us (and two years after she made …

Gamera 2000

As was the case the last time I tied in Gamera’s birthday in with Thanksgiving, the dates still don’t match up just yet (I’m late by two days). But seeing as how I’ve seemingly exhausted all horror-related Thanksgiving content, it’s turtle time. As you can tell by the title of today’s entry, this post is …

Halloween with Frankie Stein and his Ghouls

Much has been written about Frankie Stein and his Ghouls, so I’ll keep things short and sweet. The name “Frankie Stein and his Ghouls” was used on four music albums released in the 60′s by Power Records (a sublabel of Peter Pan Records, who are actually still around) featuring work by uncredited musicians. But their …

Music to Haunt By: Jerry Vayne

Jerry Vayne Official Site Virus 308, Vayne1 Music 2013 Although there are other artists out there that combine spooky soundtracks with rock music, Jerry Vayne is the only one I know of that actually has some rock credentials. In addition to his work as a solo artist, he’s played with groups like Den of Thieves, …

Music to Haunt By: Dark Ride

Prelude to a Nightmare Official Site Dark Ride, Prelude to a Nightmare Records 2012 The popularity of the circus theme in haunted attractions always amazes me. I mean, I can understand wanting to take advantage of coulrophobia and killer klowns from outer space is an awesome movie, but what gets me is that I keep …

Music to Haunt By: Transylvania

Nox Arcana Official Site Transylvania, Monolith Graphics 2005 Nox Arcana was one of groups that inspired me to do the “Music to Haunt By” series and have been a constant presence ever since then. Given how 2013 is their 10th anniversary, it would make sense for me to review their newest release that’s inspired by …

Music to Haunt By: Monsters of Legend

Midnight Syndicate Official Site Monsters of Legend, Linfaldia Records 2013 It’s been far too long since I’ve reviewed something by the Midnight Syndicate. Thankfully, my decision to rectify this came when they announced the release of their new album: Monsters of Legend. Although the cover features the titular character from Werewolf of London and Frankenstein’s …
