AHoD Fun Size: Dingo of THE ZOMBEATLES

  A Handful of Dirt usually asks a person five questions they wouldn’t normally expect or receive in any other credible interview. But since it’s Halloween, we’re offering a FUN SIZE version where we ask one Halloween question from the Serendipiter Bag o’InquiryTM.     Six years ago, the world was introduced to The Zombeatles by Rob Zombie …

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 …

Bride of Horror Trivia

In the 80’s, music legend Frank Zappa was involved in a failed attempt to raise funds for a Russian horror movie. There were actually serious plans for a movie featuring Batman fighting Godzilla. In fact, assuming I’m understanding this correctly, there might have been two separate attempts for such a film! As you can see …

Unconventional Carvings

The year was 2008. As Gravedigger’s Local 16 was in its early stages, Strange Jason and I were in constant communication about fodder for the Halloween countdown. So when Jason found out about a contest about making Jack O’Lanterns from things other than pumpkins, we immediately agreed that I had to enter. Originally, I was …

And now…The Cramps

Lux Interior (aka Erick Lee Purkhiser) was born on October 21st. I think we need a holiday for that. Dia del Lux. It’s fitting that he was born in the middle of the Halloween season. I recently was at a shindig where ‘Songs The Lord Taught Us’ was put on from start to finish. A chance …

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 …

Horror Punk From Punks (who aren’t horrorpunk)

Saying The Misfits didn’t invent horror punk is like saying The Beatles* didn’t invent rock and roll. It’s a factual statement, one that elicits a “no, duh” from the crowd but still, when you think of horror punk – POW! The Misfits. *or, fuck. I don’t know. Whoever. In fact, Punk and Horror have go …

Operation Spirit (aka Fuck You, Spirit Halloween)

Sometime last week, I wrote a diatribe about Spirit Halloween. There are many reasons for me to hate Spirit Halloween, the second of the most grievous offenses being the overpriced line of stupid, racist, and sexist costumes. The hate-fueled rant included a lot of obscenities, since the title ‘Fuck You, Spirit Halloween’ set the tone. …

Make A Mask

Masks and Halloween go together like peanut butter and chocolate. You can theoretically make do with a costume that uses make-up or otherwise doesn’t cover your face, but we all know deep down that masks are more fun. To help spread the Halloween cheer, I’ve compiled the following list of resources for free printable masks: …

Video: Zombie! “Beyond Ghosts”

Happy Halloween. Have some horror punk.

It Came from Amazon IV

Oh no, the design on these balloons have nothing to do with the Scream franchise. Any similarities are purely coincidental. Yeah, that’s the ticket… It’s official: Vincent Price hates furries. There was actually a novelization of Liquid Sky. Words fail me. This makes complete sense. Because when I hear “Peter Benchley’s classic tale of underwater …

6′+ Episode 40 is up!

To quote the description given at the new listing: “A Halloween show! One of many this year. This show was late but after you listen to it, you’ll see why. I have some unexpected technical difficulties. Thankfully, we also have music by The Mission Creeps, Hellfire Revival, Terravoltz and more. Plus, Dr. Gangrene speaks with …

It was a dark and stormy night…

Longtime readers may recall that, in our last installment, I noted how the phrase “It was a dark and stormy night” was coined by the author of The Haunters and the Haunted. The phrase has turned up in countless horror stories, like “The Monkey’s Paw,” and I have decided to pay tribute to that fact …
