Gravedigger’s Local 16 Christmas Flashback

Although most of our Christmas content is posted in December, there have been occasions where such articles had to be posted before December rolled around. As a result, they have sadly become under-appreciated. So to remedy the situation, please let this entry act as the Ghost of Christmas Past (of the non-cybernetic variety of course) …

Dissecting “Alien Autopsy”

While going through some videos made by the company responsible for that King Kong-inspired birthday party that I used in my last article, I noticed that they had done a video inspired by the infamous Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction? TV special. Although the slightly gory video was done as a tongue-in-cheek promotion of their …

It Came from Amazon II

Keep Watching the Skies! American Science Fiction Movies of the Fifties has an amazingly awesome cover. Can you name all of the characters depicted on it? The cover of the Goodtimes home video DVD release of King Kong vs. Godzilla always makes me snicker. Why? Because they used images from a more modern Godzilla movie …

Have I got a story for you…

BLAH!

Several stories, in fact. However, some might not be appropriate for readers of all ages. You have been warned… The Amazon preview for the Cthulhu Unbound anthology contains a full view of Linda L. Donahue’s “Noir-lathotep.” As you’ve probably guessed, it’s a humorous mash-up of the Cthulhu mythos and film noir with enough injokes to …

Links *I* Like

As a sequel of sorts to an earlier post by Weird Jon, I thought I would compile a list of websites I enjoy. Well, with the exception of the ones already listed on the sidebar… Cold Fusion Reviews – One of my favorite bad movie review websites. I love the comments given by the Hieratic …

It Came From Amazon

Like many horror fans, I check out Amazon.com a lot: Looking for deals and new releases, doing research for future articles or just checking out old cover art to kill some time. More often than not, I’ll happen upon something that I hadn’t set out to look for, but still find interesting enough to squirrel …

Go to any discussion of horror films and you’re sure to find people wondering, if not complaining, why certain films haven’t gotten released onto DVD yet. But I have good news! Turner Classic Movies has set up a website where you can vote for which movies should get a DVD release. The more votes a …

Thank You for Being a Fiend…

Gravedigger’s Local 16 doesn’t have an advertising budget. Aside from occasionally promoting GdL16 at other sites ourselves, we only have a Twitter account and a Facebook fan page. Many of our visitors are referred here by word of mouth or find us due to search engine hits, which is why having others link to us …

News ‘n Stuff

Normally, I stick to the “four posts per month” format I developed after GdL returned from its unintended hiatus. But, seeing as how Strange Jason is having a little trouble, I figured I’d change my rules and do an extra post. Come to think of it, Strange Jason and I both doing five posts a …

Links I Like

Interest of fairness, I’m only going to be covering links that I haven’t highlighted on this blog in the past: Teleport City – Yesterday’s Tomorrow Today. I’ve been a fan of this movie/literature/travel review site for the better part of a decade. The reviews, which often mix information about a movie with anecdotes about the …

News to me

Fearnet is showing the unrated director’s cut of Return of the Living Dead 3 both online and on its cable TV service until November 30, 2009. Why is this a big deal? Back in the days of VHS, there were two versions available: the rated version (R) and the gorier unrated version. However, the DVD …

Son of Shameless Cross-Promotion

As was the case last year, our friends at URBMN have put together a humorous article devoted to oddball costumes and masks. I’m bringing this up both to let readers know that “Costume Crazyness” wasn’t a one-off article and that the series is continuing despite URBMN’s shift of focus toward television reviews. Speaking of cross-promotion, …

The Truth Behind The Exorcist

Thanks to years of documentaries and TV specials, many people are at least vaguely aware that The Exorcist is was based on a true story. But, just as how The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is only loosely based on Ed Gein, the truth about The Exorcist is stranger (and far less exotic) than fiction. The …
