Inexpensive Theremin Substitutes

Ah, the theremin. Its otherworldly electric noises have made their way onto the soundtracks for countless horror and science fiction movies. It even turns its use for anything related to outer space is scientifically accurate! It’s a shame they can be so pricey. Building your own can lessen the expense, but it’s an intimidating task …

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 …

Deep One Dave

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos are a very popular genre on YouTube. Such videos are usually filmed from a first person perspective in order to make it seem like you are interacting with the subject of the video you are watching. At first I assumed these were made to help people deal with their …

Splendorman

It’s Women In Horror Recognition Month and I have the perfect video to celebrate! It’s a hilarious Slender Man parody (more specifically, the Slender Man mythos set up in the Marble Hornets web series) which you can watch thanks to Neil Cicierega: So why is a video about Splendorman that was uploaded by a man …

Jiangshi Comedy

The English translation for “jiangshi” seems to be pretty flexible. I have seen them referred to as vampires, ghouls, ghosts and even zombies in various English language resources. One such example of the “zombie” usage comes to us from this hilarious prank video by TMD Shanghai: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Tne0nlYJHU Unlike many prank videos using the modern depiction …

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, …

How To Build Haunted House Walls

Okay, so you know how to detail haunted house walls. But such knowledge means absolutely nothing without any walls to detail! So I have combed YouTube for the greatest selection of videos on the subject I could find. Although I tried to cover the greatest variety of walls possible, there is bound to be some …

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 …

Who’s There?

When fans of this website hear the names “Brian Davis” and “Jay Brooks,” they’re most likely to think of music. After all, Jay is the head of Clouseaux and both men create spooky ambient music as Grave Tone Productions. But did you know they’re also filmmakers? The duo decided to make a short film in …

Godzilla Marathon Promos

Godzilla movie marathons were a common staple of 90’s television programming, even before the hype over Tristar’s 1998 disappointment started. Although most of them were promoted by simply combining narration with clips from the films, some stations rolled up their sleeves to create something truly special. Our first example comes to us from WGN, as …

So, thanks to TheSpringwoodSlasher, here is the film’s most famous musical composition: Back when I first saw the movie, I assumed this was just another example of some indie band teaming up with the makers of a …

All About Jiangshi

Are you interested in learning more about jiangshi but unable to access (or understand) Chinese sources on the matter? Or perhaps you find the idea of digging through Wikipedia or Google Books for leads on what few scholarly English language information exists on them to be less than appealing. Well, today is your lucky day …

Toxic Turtle

Tomorrow will mark Gamera’s 50th anniversary since the release of his first film in 1965. It would be tempting to celebrate by sharing the trailer for the upcoming Gamera movie, but I want to discuss something truly special about the character in honor of this occasion. More specifically, Gamera’s early appearances in American pop culture. …

Godzilla 1985’s 30th Anniversary

Today is not the day Godzilla 1985 was released in America, but it really has been 30 years. Any potential confusion is appropriate considering how the film was mistakenly marketed here as being released for Godzilla’s 30th anniversary. While this was true for the original Japanese version’s release in 1984, the US version was a …

Halloween, Kava Kon Style

Some might frown at people carving anything other than a pumpkin to make a Jack O’Lanterns, but I think it’s perfectly acceptable. There are some amazing watermelon carvings out there and the whole carving tradition originally involved turnips. So pineapple Tiki O’Lanterns are fine in my book. Especially when they are accompanied by creepy music …
