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 …

Christmas, Tabonga Style

For the uninitiated, Tabonga (sometimes referred to as “Tabanga” or “Taranga” depending on the source) is the name of the monster in a little movie called From Hell It Came. It’s the story of a tree that walked like a man…and died like a chump. Given how it’s a 50’s monster movie that most people …

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 …

John Carpenter’s The Thing: The Musical

Do you like John Carpenter’s The Thing? Do you like Frank Sinatra? Then you’ll love the following parody from Jon and Al Kaplan: If the Kaplans seem familiar to you, it’s because they’re the minds behind those hilarious Arnold Schwarzenegger musicals from a few years back. They are also responsible for stage play Silence! The …

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 …

Halloween with Frankie Stein and his Ghouls

Much has been written about Frankie Stein and his Ghouls, so I’ll keep things short and sweet. The name “Frankie Stein and his Ghouls” was used on four music albums released in the 60’s by Power Records (a sublabel of Peter Pan Records, who are actually still around) featuring work by uncredited musicians. But their …

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!

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 …

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 …

Thingu

It’s no secret that I love stop motion comedy videos that pay tribute to horror classics, so it should be no surprise that I was very interested when I heard there was a claymation parody of John Carpenter’s The Thing floating around online: In case you’re wondering, this was done in the style of the …
