My Mandatory Halloween Music

Be it rocking the best Halloween party this side of the murky swamp in which I reside, or sitting alone in a room with only the soft glow of my stereo to comfort me, these are some top jams that really put me in the Halloween mood. First, I’ll start off with giving you a …

Mandatory Halloween Watch

Well,Boils and Ghouls, it’s that time of the year. October. Time to get geared up for spooks and candy and all things horrific and gruesome. Who am I kidding? Here at Gravediggers Local 16, it’s that time of the year all year around. But October holds a special place in our cold blackened hearts as …

Haunted Attraction Tour Videos

I’ve decided to reboot my “Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs” article series. Why? Because it was an absolute mess. It featured videos of walking by yard haunts and riding through haunted hayrides despite the use of the word “walkthrough” in its name and I was constantly having to replace videos that got taken down. This led to …

Howie’s Haunted Halloween Nightmare

Remember that cartoon from a few years back that parts of the internet were raving about? The one with animation which payed homage to the style popularized in the 30’s? No, not Over the Garden Wall. The title of this article should have been a dead giveaway to what I’m talking about. All kidding aside, …

Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs V

In spite of the problems of I noted in last year’s installment, I have decided to continue this particular series of articles. But I have decided to cut back to ten videos instead of fifteen since replacing videos is still a concern. This way I’ll still be able to keep this going while not having …

Wolfmen of Mars- Warped Suburbium

Just in time for the Halloween season, Wolfmen of Mars drop a new E.P. Warped Suburbium. And let me tell you, this instrumental sonic blast of 6 songs is garunteed to put you in a spooky mood. This outing for the Wolfmen of Mars feels like Halloween to me. Songs like these could be a …

Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs IV

The years have not been kind to this particular series of postings. So many old installments had to have their coding fixed and numerous videos had to be replaced. It got to the point where several videos I had wanted to share with you this year had to be sacrificed in order to fill in …

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 …

Music In Costume: Bloodsucking Zombies From Outer Space dress up as Alice Cooper

Have you ever shown up to a Halloween party and someone was wearing the same costume as you? It’s a mortifying because it implies a lack of creativity or imagination, nullifying whatever efforts you placed in crafting your disguise. That’s what it IMPLIES, but that’s crap. If you told twenty people to dress up as …

Music In Costume: The Mutilators dress up as Michael Jackson

Is it odd for a psychobilly band to cover the King of Pop? Answer: Yes. But I also think that Psychobilly is a much more varied genre than what it appears to be. Psychobilly bands who don’t hold themselves to a purity ideal have produced an interesting range of cover songs over the past thirty …

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 …

Reminder: Fuck Spirit Halloween

It’s the 9th of October and it’s my annual reminder that Spirit Halloween is a peddler of cheap shit and horribly racist and sexist costumes (and just some downright idiotic ones).  And that’s even before you factor in the allegations of their parent company stocking goods which are claimed to use stolen designs. I mean, …

Music In Costume: The Groovie Ghoulies dress up as The Ramones

I kind of like the cover more than the original. Both are excellent, but the guitar from the Groovie Ghoulies rendition (particularly this one from their ‘Monster Party’ collection) is fast and dirty. Which one do you prefer? VS

Stop the Countdown!

Over the past weekend, I walked into a Party City to kill some time and see if there was any creepy-Birthday related supplies as a last minute celebration of a particular bat-winged DJ I know. And, despite it not even being August, there was a section that had been cleared out, plastered with orange wallpaper …
