Interview with Joe Bob Briggs

Everyone loves John Bloom and especially his horror-host persona Joe Bob Briggs. It’s nothing short of delightful to listen to this man speak. Even cooler, he’s kind of enough to actually personally read and respond to his fan mail, which is surely daunting. And because he was kind enough to answer my questions, let’s dive

A Witchy Claymation: The Adventures of Peggy & Linda

I love animation in all of its forms, but claymation is certainly my all-time favorite. Seeing 3-dimensional Plasticine people come to life is like breathing life into your favorite childhood toys.

A New 2019 Take on the Original ’78 Halloween Theme

A Taste of Texas Part 5

#PumpkinLog Entry #8: The End

See all Pumpkin Log entries here on HL or Twitter πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ They didn’t make it. 😒 Beyond all the stuff that happened to them as I last reported, it looks like I simply planted them too late in the season. I planted them at least 1 month too late, if not 2-3 months too late!

A Taste of Texas Part 4

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. The year was 1986, and it was coming. My first indication of it was not Fangoria, surprisingly enough. I used to devour each issue as it came out, but for some reason the only store near me that carried it was getting shorted its copies or not getting it at all,

Sinkhole: A Horror Story

Horror writers are often asked where we get our ideas from. In many cases, we can’t actually give you an answer that’s 100% accurate.
