I Love Creepshow

The title really says it all, but I’ll elaborate. I must have been 11 or 12 when I first watched Creepshow. My grandmother had rented some scary movies for me in early October of that year and most of them were classics I’d seen before. One film in that stack though was new to me,

🍾πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰ HL Turns 10! β€” Fondest Halloween Memories?

It’s been a decade now since I first started Halloween Love. In all that time, the project never went Big Timeβ„’ (though I always try and offer people big time fun) or made a single penny of profit.

A Taste of Texas Part 2

Terror in the Aisles. That was the film which pushed my obsession with Texas Chainsaw Massacre into a full-blown case of fanaticism. Released in 1984, Terror in the Aisles was a horror documentary of sorts. Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen took audiences on a tour of the best parts of horror movies, all while talking

Party Like it’s 1999 Giveaway

Contestking is the winner! Congrats! Kubrick’s 1999 that is. I’ve always fantasized about going to one of these masquerades. Real life often disappoints though.
