What Gives?

Toho has been paying money out of their own pocket for English language dubs of Godzilla movies for ages and American distributors rarely create their own Godzilla dubs these days. So why hasn’t Toho edited together and dubbed the Godzilla-related episodes of the television series Zone Fighter into movies they can license overseas? It’s been …

Weighing in on Trunk or Treats

I’m pretty sure most people out there already know what a “Trunk or Treat” is. But just in case you don’t, I’ll explain: a “Trunk or Treat” is when children are taken to a specially chosen parking lot (usually at a town hall, church or shopping area) and go from vehicle to vehicle to collect …

The Importance of “Blacula”

It is far too easy for the uninitiated to regard Blacula as a joke. Considering the low quality of blaxploitation horror movies like Blackenstein, it’s somewhat understandable. The film’s publicity materials also helped add a little fuel to this fire. Here’s one such example from CineGraphic: Although it initially went into production as a comedy …

How To Review Haunted Attractions

Let me start off by stressing how the intention of this article is NOT to make people duplicate my reviewing style. Given the flaws in it which will be shared below, I actually want people to avoid making the same mistakes I did. Step 1: Reading Reviews Reading the work of other haunted attraction reviewers …

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 …

Video Store Day Is Here!

It’s the third Saturday of October and that means it’s Video Store Day! It’s when we all make an effort to go out and support our (surviving) local video stores. 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 …

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, …

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 …

I Hate Creepypasta

MISDIRECTION! Actually, I don’t hate Creepypasta. I hate the term because instead of a creative portmanteau that has a bit of flair or utility, the term ‘creepypasta’ reads like the sugar-demented compound-word biproduct that one would associate with paint-huffing and Mt. Dew. ‘Creepypasta.’ It’s adapted from the word ‘copypasta’ which is a lazy version of ‘copy paste’ that …

Colder Weather

Something non-fatal but just as jarring affected my alter-ego, which delayed the latest 6ftplus episode. My words also disappeared (these are borrowed.) Do something creepy this weekend. I’ll rejuvenate and get back on my feet.

On Halloween

Halloween is the one day of the year where the creeps of the world get to celebrate our creepiness and the rest of the world can just step back and kiss our wart laden asses.- Blag Dahlia     While the origins of Halloween emanate from Celtic pagan celebrations of Samhain mixed with a little bit …

I Got The Spirit But Lose The Feeling

(aka Fuck You Spirit Halloween 2013) Happy Halloween Season, ladies and gentlemen and all those in between. There’s a lot of swearing in this one. A month ago, I received a comment on a past article I wrote, which in itself is an odd phenomenon. In a sea full of horror blogs, we’re good but …

At My End

Go see The World’s End this summer. Don’t go see This Is The End. The World’s End is made by people who actually give a fuck. This is The End is made by people who are fucking around. There is a much more eloquent way to put these sentiments but do you really need it? …

The Undead of Mars

It has been close to five years since Veronica Mars went off the air, and this show was set to remain dead until a few days ago, where a Kickstarter Project raised over two million for a movie. Currently, over 50,000 people have raised over three million for this movie. All right.  At first, I …

Talk about creepy…

After finding the material for yesterday’s entry, I decided to mess around with Google Books some more. I was hoping to find material on haunted hayrides (especially if there were any books devoted to creating and running one), but what I found was so much more bloggable. You see, I found a page from Guy …

Redneck Dracula

Elmo Shropshire (aka Dr. Elmo), the man who inflicted “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” upon the world, seems to have milked Christmas dry and set his sights on Halloween. Sadly, this seems to be a growing trend among those who specialize in Christmas music. Originally appearing as a song on his 2005 “Sings …
