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 …

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.

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.

Oddity Archive: The Sounds of Halloween

One of my favorite web review series is Ben Minnotte’s Oddity Archive. I love his looks at various audio visual oddities and how his theme music sounds like something from a giallo movie. Where else could you learn about failed video formats, obscure broadcasting standards and the like from a guy behind a cardboard box? …

Comedian Tom Mabe came up with a great idea for a prank: Get a hexacopter drone, hang a Grim Reaper decoration under it using a generous amount of fishing line and then send it after people in a park! You can see the hilarious results yourself thanks to his MabeInAmerica channel: He also did another …

The years have not been kind to this particular series of postings. So many old installments had to have their coding fixed and numerous videos had to be replaced. It got to the point where several videos I had wanted to share with you this year had to be sacrificed in order to fill in …

Mad Science Gone Wrong

The creation of a video segment to use during part of a haunted house is nothing new. But what sets the subject of today’s article apart from the rest is its rather unique take on the matter.

Questionable Horror Sounds Of The Night

Every Halloween lover has their own pick for the best spooky soundtrack to play on the big night. I used to hold Horror Sounds Of The Night in that regard. It used to creep me out so much back when I first got it and I couldn’t imagine anything scarier. But when I dug up …

The King Plays The Haunted Majora Cartridge

“Ben Drowned” is a creepypasta about a haunted Nintendo 64 cartridge with one interesting detail which set it apart from the others. The author created a video of him “playing” the haunted cartridge in order to make he story seem more realistic. Since the game used to create it was Majora’s Mask, it wasn’t long …

Thriller Parodies

Parodies are inevitable when you have a music video for a song as popular as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Trying to list them all would take too long, so let’s narrow it down to two. The first is the famous “Indian Thriller”: Said video is actually a musical number from the movie Donga, which you can …
