The Worm Turns

worm 1

Surprisingly enough, I do a lot of decorating for Halloween. I used to be involved with a number of haunted house attractions and loved the kind of big, flashy props that those environments require. Electric chairs with flashing strobe lights and maniacs wielding roaring chainsaws are certainly effective, but as I’ve grown older I’ve developed …

The Importance of “Invisible Ghost”

It’s all too easy to dismiss Invisible Ghost as just another Bela Lugosi poverty row movie. It has a low budget, inaccurate title and seemingly nothing else to make it stand out above its fellow bargain bin fare. Notice my use of the word “seemingly.” That’s due to the presence of Evans the butler. Despite …

Mr. Vampire: 30 Years of Fear

Mr. Vampire was released on November 7, 1985 and the world has never been the same. I had originally planned on reviewing the film in honor of its 30th anniversary, but scuttled my plans after discovering both the American DVD and VHS releases are grossly overpriced and it would be cruel of me to recommend …

Movie Review: The Return of the Vampire (1944)

Zombos Says: Good Bela Lugosi's career didn't fare well after his initial fame with Dracula. Having apparently failed the makeup screen test for Frankenstein—though he wasn't overly found of playing the monster anyway—his reserved and aloof demeanor kept him from ingratiating himself with the Hollywood in-crowd. That, and the rapidly rising stardom of Boris Karloff …

The Ponape Scriptures: My Edition

ponape scriptures 2 close

With all this discussion of tomecraft I thought it would be appropriate to share some of my own efforts. All of these pictures are from a small run of about a dozen copies of the “Ponape Scriptures” that I did around ten years ago. I thought I’d lost all the pictures I’d taken of them, …

Numa Numa Godzilla

I remember when the internet was flooded with comedy videos of people dancing to the “Numa Numa” song. It turns out its actual name is “Dragostea din tei” (which means “Love from the lindens” in English). It’s from a Moldovan group called O-Zone and you can read more about its history here. In honor of …

Costume Crazyness 2014

Once again October has given me a lot of new costumes to mock. It’s also given me the obligatory Scream knock-off and offensive ethnic stereotype costume. I don’t know whether to be disappointed or impressed that they managed to make something that could offend two groups at the same time. As it gets more and …

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 …
