Scared Stiff by the Party Monsters: Elvira’s Pinball Adventures

It seems like I’ve always known about Elvira. I know that can’t be possible, but at the same time I can’t pinpoint the exact moment I learned of her existence. I remember learning about her pinball game Elvira and the Party Monsters during one of the same family vacations that led to me discovering Rampage …

The Casket Girls, “Sleepwalking”

Since it’s Women in Horror Recognition Month, I finally have a way to introduce the subject of today’s article. Seriously, I had no idea how to properly start this article (despite having the rest of it finished). It’s probably because it’s so hard for me to pinpoint just why I love the song “Sleepwalking.” From …

In Tribute: Lux Interior

Lux Interior (aka Erick Lee Purkhiser) died five years ago today. A lot more will be written by those who knew him, who saw him perform, those who had a personal connection with the man and his band’s music. Since I’m a gravedigger, I usually find out about things after they’re dead, so I have no “The …

13 Days: Why Didn’t You Put Up That Xmas Tree?

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the last hour. The song is less than two minutes long. You can do the math. If there was egg nog in the apartment, I’m pretty sure I’d be drinking to it. There’s something just powerful in the line “Are you gonna fuck it up this …

13 Days: 20 Years

IMG_1531

20 Years Ago:   The above is a still taken from the end of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode “Village of the Giants,” broadcast on January 4th, 1994. That was the episode with ‘The Greatest Frank’ or ‘Frank About Frank.‘ Around the time of his passing, the classic rock station in that Northeast corner of New …

In Honor of Godzilla’s Birthday…

let’s pay tribute to the man who played the original incarnation of the Big G: Haruo Nakajima. Granted, he was joined by Katsumi Tezuka for stunt double duties for some of the early films and was mostly replaced in Son of Godzilla (with the exception of the water scenes) by Seiji Onaka and Hiroshi Sekita …

Mangled Leftovers: The Mangled Dead’s 2013 Halloween Set

One of my current favorite bands is The Mangled Dead. I really like their lo-fi attitude to horror punk. They’re one of those bands full of musicians who, if they were to forgo the horror business and write more mainstream songs, I could easily see playing with any of the garage revivalists or fuzz-rockers. I …

Transylvania-TV Halloween Special

You have until November 1st to watch the following Halloween special. Don’t let the puppets fool you: It’s not for kids. A Vampire gets it on with a Mummy (spoiler alert) and there’s something about pickles and a Pumpkin prince but it’s fun otherwise.

How To Detail Haunted House Walls

It’s odd…despite being a Halloween/horror blog, we rarely discuss how to make props for Halloween displays and haunted attractions. And when the subject is discussed, it’s usually focused on printable stuff. As you have probably noticed, we’re slowly changing things around here so that we have more how-to stuff in the mix. As you can …

Pay The Rent

If you’re not buying candy for the kids this year, use the spare money to pitch in to a local homeless shelter. October can be cold for some people. When it comes to paying the bills, some people are pretty desperate. Due to some work-related issues, tomorrow’s episode of 6′+ won’t be available until late …

Creating A Home Haunt For Less Than $100

With the economy and lots of professional haunted attractions either closing or going on hiatus, it’s far too easy to be leery about spending money on a home haunt. Especially when you see some of the amazing home haunts out there. But you don’t have to let a low budget keep you from having a …

Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper

In some hushed sects of the population, October is the time of The Feast Of Alice Cooper. Granted, Alice’s heyday of fear might still be back when seeing ballet dancers dressed as zombies and awkward bats would be considered controversial and scary. Still, the man continues to perform to this very day in the name …

Preview of the 2013 6′+ Halloween Episode

Because of 6′+, we have to keep an ear open for particular music all year around – specifically Christmas/Hanukkah and Halloween music. And most of the horror-themed bands that we spotlight don’t always do Halloween music. There is also a limited amount of subject matter one can sing about the holiday. So, when we find …

Getting In The Mood: The Spooky, WE HAVE RISEN

By the time of writing, you can buy copies of this album off of Ebay. The Spooky are a great band. They’re not that active anymore because horror punk bands don’t make any money unless you sound like early AFI or late Misfits. But go and pick up a copy of We Have Risen, because …

Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs II

Since the response was so positive last year, I’ve gathered up another selection of haunted attraction video tours, both home haunt and professional. I’m afraid there aren’t any hayride videos this time around, but instead there’s several haunted trail videos (and even one for a corn maze) in addition to all of the haunted house …
