Vintage Halloween Insanity

Here’s a scanned article from a 1934 issue of Modern Mechanix called “Thrills and Chills for your Hallowe’en Party.” Emphasis on “chills,” because there’s no way you could get away with 99% percent of those ideas without getting roped into a personal injury lawsuit.

Ghoul Log

According to the uploader, packratshow: “This clip is from Drew’s Famous Ghoul Log DVD. I’ve only captured the first 25 percent becuase they basically gave up after 8 and half minutes. The rest of the video is still frames of the pumpkins and mask for 30 minutes. I feel ripped of even though I only …

Where was I last night?

I was getting my ass kicked by these guys – Dressing up in rubber suits and latex for a living is one thought most extravagant.

The “Ultimate Haunt”

Enter if you dare...

Chances are that you’ve heard stories about a haunted house with 13 floors somewhere in your state. You know, the one that nobody’s ever been able to complete since it’s so scary and has trapdoors that drop you out of the place? In fact, the management is so confident nobody can finish that they’ll give …

Earth E.P, Necro-Tone Records 2008 Out of Massachusetts comes The Crimson Ghosts, a band that plays instrumental surf renditions of Misfits songs.

Coming Soon: Haunt Reviews

It’s often best to visit a haunted attraction (be it house, hayride, trail, etc.) around this time to the middle of October in order to avoid long lines and waiting times.
