El Santo de Mayo 2015!

Are you disappointed that you never got to see El Hijo del Santo in action before he had to retire a few years back? Thankfully there’s a YouTube video featuring him battling the adopted son of his father’s sometimes friend, sometimes rival the Blue Demon. Since the above match occurred in 2002, let’s look at …

The 6th Annual GdL16 Easter Egg Hunt

easterbunnyhalloween

This year’s Easter Egg hunt is going to be a bit different. There was supposed to have been a new review of a DVD filled with hidden “Easter Eggs,” but some circumstances beyond our control have delayed it. So instead, this year’s hunt will involve a mix of goodies from previous years and a video …

Have a Spooky St. Patrick’s Day!

Since we tend to focus on American works inspired by Irish traditions in our annual celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, it is a welcome change to pace to actually share something from the Emerald Isle with you. It’s an Irish short film called Midnight Dance and it’s the creation of John McCloskey of Raw Nerve …

The Return of Count Spirochete

Love is in the air and we here at Gravedigger’s Local 16 want to make sure you keep it safe. That’s why we’re sharing an animated educational short from 1973 about venereal disease. Syphilis and gonorrhea, to be precise. It’s not for kids or viewing at work. Trust us on this. It’s called The Return …

Solstice Spirits

It’s no secret I am a huge fan of Nox Arcana’s Christmas albums. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard they released a festive new EP called Ebonshire, Volume 2 this month. To celebrate, here’s a special music video for a selection from the Winter’s Majesty album taken directly from the official Nox …

Making A Krampus Costume

The last time I discussed constructing a Krampus costume, I focused more on assembling something from store bought costume parts rather than making one from scratch. I wanted something that would be a relatively easy way for even those without the best costume or prop-making skills to make a Krampus suit. But I also realize …

Happy Chanukkill!

The sun is down and Chanukkah is here! Since I often celebrate Christmas here with collections of oddball links related to the holiday, it’s only fair for me to do the same with the Festival of Lights. Let’s start things off with a book I’ve been meaning to cover here for ages: Hershel and the …

Season’s Bleedings! Like Santa Claus, I’m reaching into my bag of goodies to find the best horrorday treats for you all. And you don’t even have to leave me any cookies! Fans of H.P. Lovecraft should remember his wonderful Christmas poem “Christmastide,” which was surprisingly free of cosmic horrors and racism. What they might not …

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 …

Given the resurgence in the popularity of VHS and all the special offers available at various stores (freebies, discounts, etc.), it’s hard to see why …

Music In Costume: The Fuzztones dress up as Screaming Lord Sutch

I think people compare Screamin’ Lord Sutch to Alice Cooper, since they both came up around the same time in the 60’s/70’s. Still, I think Alice has a little more grit and grossness, whereas Sutch would later go on to politics. Still, his music is seen as an inspiration for the modern mad garage scene, …

Music In Costume: Demented Are Go dress up as Devo

It doesn’t surprise me that Demented Are Go would do a DEVO cover. Nor does it surprise me that they did “Mongoloid,” the now-barred term for someone of low-intelligence. Considering the mutant rock that comprises Demented Are Go, it seems like a fits-like-hand-in-glove territory. Fun music for the whole family. Personally, I like the frenetic …
