Music to Haunt By: The Return

It’s been a very busy year in the world of haunted ambiance albums. Midnight Syndicate is currently performing in their much anticipated live shows at Cedar Point Amusement Park’s “Halloweekends” event. Although Joseph Vargo has taken time off to write the thrid installment of The Dark Tower book series, Nox Arcana is expected to have …

MonsterVision Memories

I can’t tell you how many Saturday nights I spent watching Joe Bob Briggs host various horror and cult films in the 90’s. He would give trivia on the movies being played, tell jokes and give his classic “Drive-In Totals.” Severed limbs would be tallyed, sex scenes were referred to as “aardvarking” and attacks with …

Make Your Own Spooky Sound Effects

Many years ago my younger brother and I tried making a custom soundtrack for our homemade haunted house. Emphasis on “tried.” It started out great at first, the door to the basement already creaked when it opened and my brother’s impression of an old witch welcoming visitors in was perfect. The trouble started when we …

This tasty-looking beverage is the “Autumn Harvest” as made by 62 Restaurant in Salem. So they obviously know a thing or two about Halloween beverages and other tasty treats. If a trip to Salem isn’t possible, you can learn how to make one at home (along with several other seasonal cocktails) thanks to Nightclub & …

Freaky Food

halloweencake

If the “Halloween Cake” picture above seems like a tasty treat, you can learn how to make your own thanks to the Google Books preview of American Cookery Volume 24. It also has a recipe for “Witches’ Delight,” which has a great name but doesn’t look very spooky. Those who want party snacks which do …

Yet More Fear For Your Ears

If you’re searching for fresh and original horror stories, look no further than Sudden Chillers. Although I think they have a creepypasta vibe, these readings should also appeal to fans of traditional horror stories as well. You can also find free samples of his work on the Sudden Chillers YouTube account. Speaking of creepypasta, Midnight …

How To Make A Freddy Krueger Glove

Getting your hands on a good quality Freddy Krueger glove can be expensive, especially if you can’t find one in your area and have to order it online instead. The poor quality of the lower priced unlicensed versions is also less than attractive. Thankfully you can easily make one of your very own for next …

It Came From Amazon VI

After going over some previous installments of this series, I was inspired to try making a list of all the Goosebumps imitators out there: Gooflumps Spine Chillers Bone Chillers Deadtime Stories Shivers Spinetinglers Spooksville Strange Matter Star Wars: Galaxy of Fear That’s right, not even George Lucas could pass up cashing in on the Goosebumps …

Terrifying Tales

body

The image illustrating this article doesn’t tie into any particular story. But there’s something about it which just screams “creepypasta” to me. I bring this up because it turns out the link to “Creepypasta Cookoff 2012″ in last year’s installment will now include stories from 2013 (along with those from future cookoffs). Since I’m discussing …

Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs III

Another year, another collection of videos of people visiting haunted attractions. There’s quite the selection this year: professional haunted attractions, home haunts and yard haunts. Although many of the videos are from 2012-2013, I made sure to include some older material. There’s even one from 1995! But let’s cut down on the hype and get …

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale

dogfishheadpunkin

As much as I love Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale, I do make an effort to try other pumpkin beers. And by “make an effort,” I mean I only order it when my favorite brand is not on the menu. So when I ran into such a situation during a recent family get together, I decided to …

It Came From Wikipedia VII

It’s hard to say which now-defunct museum sounds more interesting: The Museum of Funeral Customs or Jones’ Fantastic Museum (which had horror author Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire playing a vampire who scared guests). For years I assumed the “Davy Jones” associated with “Davy Jones’ Locker” was a famous sailor of some sort. It turns out he’s …

It’s been a long time since I shared free coloring sheets for Halloween, so I imagine you have since run out of new material for the little ones in your life. If you enjoy this vintage promotional coloring sheet from The Monster and the Ape that Hollywood Gorilla Men was kind enough to share, then …

The Revenge of Horror Trivia

The opening theme for House on Haunted Hill originally had lyrics, which you can read here. Japan is home to dining establishments based on Resident Evil and Suspiria. Although the names of the men used to create Frankenstein’s monster have never been revealed, the identity of the woman used to create his “Bride” is one …

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of spooky decorating, whether it’s for a haunted attraction or just for your house on Halloween night. Dim light can create atmosphere and hide flaws in (if not enhance) props while a light in the darkness and can lure eyes (or people) to a specific location. Lights …
