Well, isn’t this interesting?

Quick bit for today. Haven’t really talked about spooky hip-hop for a reason: outside of maybe a few songs off of one Necro album, there’s very little ‘horrorcore’ that I like. To each their own, right? Seems one zealous fan is accused to chopping four people up into pieces. It’s CNN so the reporting is …

Viva Naschy!

According to my calendar, September is Hispanic Heritage Month and I feel there’s no better way to celebrate this occasion than to profile Spain’s Sultan of Scare, Paul Naschy. Mr. Naschy is often referred to as the Spanish Lon Chaney, presumably since both Lon Chaney Jr. and he portrayed men tormented by their lycanthropic transformations …

Happy Birthday to us!

It’s hard to believe that it’s actually been a year since Gravedigger’s Local 16 first started. I know this sounds like a cliché, but it really does seem like it was only yesterday when Strange Jason set up the layout and made the first post on this blog. In celebration of this event, I thought …

Is this the end of civilization as we know it?

MGM/Comcast’s “Impact” OnDemand channel is now offering the 1986 post-apocalyptic trash classic Robot Holocaust for free. Yes, as in the one that appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Although the film’s print is very good and has all the footage that was cut from the MST3K version, those who remember Wizard Video’s claim that it …

Old news and New news

I was talking with the Abominable N. Oremac recently about the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street remake and he informed me that Variety has reported that Jackie Earle Haley is going to be the new Freddy Krueger. Although I’m glad the oft-rumored for the role Billy Bob Thornton didn’t get the part, I would …

Lost and Found

Imagine my surprise when I found a reference to Lionsgate Entertainment releasing a “Lost Collection” tomorrow while reading the Wikipedia entry for Repossessed. Searching for “the lost collection” on Amazon yielded the following movies: My Best Friend’s a Vampire Repossessed Slaughter High For the sake of completeness, here are the non-horror titles in the collection: …

Dead (For Now)

I’ve been nursing a Halloween Hangover for the last two weeks. Weird Jon and Atomic Mystery Monster were good enough to post a few things but we’re going to put the CLOSED sign up for about a week. So, on 11/15, we’ll relaunch this site into something that looks a little better. Nothing stays dead …

Political Zombies

What better way to celebrate today’s election than zombified masks of the candidates? So whether you’re supporting Zombama, McBrain, or planning a write-in for Hellary, be sure to actually go out and vote before the polls close.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Man, forget these guys. If someone whips out a Mannhein Steamroller CD at your next party, be it Christmas or Halloween, then you know that person is NOT YOUR FRIEND. (and fuck Universal music group for disabling embedding.) We’re hitting the home-stretch towards Halloween. I’m spending the night with Monster Madhouse and a bunch of …

Looking for horror flicks?

Latenight Wingman has you covered with its list of horror movies playing on cable this month.

Robot Monster: Special Edition

I think the person who uploaded this, backobeyond, summed it up nicely: “The following is a clip from a 1982 MTV special. Before MTV had enough music videos to fill their day they scheduled with specials and events. In this TV special Videography Studios and 3D Video pooled their resources and shot new 3D footage …

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 …

Coming Soon: Haunt Reviews

It’s often best to visit a haunted attraction (be it house, hayride, trail, etc.) around this time to the middle of October in order to avoid long lines and waiting times. So in the near future, Strange Jason will be covering some haunted attractions in Connecticut and I’ll be covering some in Massachusetts. Sadly, due …

Happy Halloween

Not into September and there’s already a palpable spirit to the Halloween season. There’s something noticeable about this year, though. Even though it was 82 degrees out, there was still that fall chill in the morning. It’s easy to get excited about Halloween but just easy to burn out. For the last two years, I’ve …
