Creepy Santa Doll

I know that I’ve been relying on music videos based around the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s Christmas albums over the last few years, but I’m in the mood for a change. As much as I love their work, I don’t want to give away to much of the HPLHS’ hard work away. With this in …

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 …

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 …

Brain Candy

Remember when I reviewed Michael Arnzen’s flash fiction album AudioVile? Well, someone has made an animated version of the post apocalyptic tale “Brain Candy,” which you can watch thanks to PostGazetteNow: If you enjoyed that story, then I have some great news for you: You can download the original audio version for free at Mike …

Merry Fishmas!

Another year, another fan-made music video of a holiday song by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. This year’s selection is “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fishmen,” as filmed and uploaded by one haakor: That said, you shouldn’t watch it if you want to avoid any spoilers for The Shadow Over Innsmouth… Merry Christmas!

Hallowindows

Back when Strange Jason and I were gearing up for the first Halloween countdown, he showed me an amazing Halloween display video. In it, an elaborate spooky animation display was projected onto the front windows of a house. It was incredible and mere words couldn’t do it justice. Sadly, I lost the link in the …

Freddy Takes D.C.

…Follies, that is. For those unfamiliar with the program, D.C. Follies was one of two (the other being Sid & Marty Krofft’s Red Eye Express) shows made in the 80’s by the creators of H.R. Pufnstuf that teamed human actors with puppet versions of famous politicians and celebrities. D.C. Follies was arguably the most successful …

Pumpkin Carving with the Muppets

Since Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker have already gone ghost hunting, it would make perfect sense for their next Halloween-related experiment to focus on the grand tradition of carving Jack O’Lanterns. Thankfully, we can see it all thanks to the official themuppetlabs Youtube channel: Similarly, MuppetsStudio has a hilarious pumpkin carving video featuring the Swedish …

A Haunted Buster Keaton

It’s a very busy time for us here at Gravedigger’s Local 16. In addition to gearing up for the annual Halloween countdown, we’ve also been devoting a lot of time behind-the-scenes to finding the perfect public domain film clips to use in an upcoming commercial for the site that’s scheduled to appear in an online …

Midnight Movie Madness

Once people figured out how to put video files onto CDs, it wasn’t long before companies tried to take advantage of this in order to supplant VHS as the format of choice. CD Video failed miserably and VCDs never really took off in the states. More specifically, several software companies decided that they wanted to …

A Mythos Carol

Seeing as how I celebrated Christmas with a Youtube video featuring a Lovecraftian Christmas carol by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society last year, I thought it would be fun to do it again this year. This year’s selection is a fan-made music video made by GodfreyTemple,: which was apparently approved by the HPLHS: For more …

Godzilla and King Kong, Together Again

As it’s the Big G’s birthday, I thought it would be nice to pay tribute to one of his greatest battles. I was stuck on what to do, until I discovered that the Peruvian fast food chain Bembos decided to do a humorous ad reuniting the two (well, reasonable facsimiles of the two) that’s probably …

A Halloween Scarol

Remember Big Scream TV: The Boo Tube? Well, the company behind that series does other lines of video decor DVDs. One such example is Halloween Scarols, which combines Big Scream TV-style characters with Halloween-themed Christmas carol parodies. In fact, the songs were later released as a CD as well! As I’ve shared music videos from …

Ghost Busted

Strange Jason once said there was a difference between doing a cover of a song and doing a version of a song. Although I used to think he was splitting hairs, I have since changed my mind. One musician doing their take on another’s song can both pay tribute to the original and create an …

Beetlejuice Reenactment

I first became aware of ArtieTSMITW thanks to a friend and I constantly joking about a YTMND featuring the infamous “The line must be drawn here!” line from Star Trek: First Contact. One day, said friend linked me to a reenactment of the scene by Artie. This was back when he had first started out, …

Adieu Zombie Awareness Month

Today is the final day of Zombie Awareness Month 2011. As the site’s zombie-related content got rather lean towards the end of the month, I thought I’d share a zombie video to give ZAM the send-off it deserves: I love the way that video ends, don’t you? But don’t worry, I’m not only going to …
