Halloween Love

I Saw Hands: The Disembodied Hands Phenomenon

There is no greater freedom for a wily 14-year-old than having the house to yourself. It was 2004, and the sun had just set on a long, tired Saturday in Tennessee. My parents escaped into the night to gamble away their money, leaving the house to me and the cats. I was often home alone,

Please Help Me to Fund Halloween Love

$1,000/month Goal For sustainable funding, Monthly option preferred. Paying writers out-of-pocket and never making a profit, I’ve struggled my way through a full decade of creating fun, content, games, giveaways, and contests for the Halloween and horror community. And even if we don’t receive a single dollar from this attempt at funding, Halloween Love will

The Story of Rosie the Shark

I love sharks; they’re a big deal for me. I saw JAWS at a very young age (around 5-years-old or so), and it’s been deeply embedded in my dreams, my nightmares, and my waking thoughts ever since.

The series follows a werewolf named Colin who turns to vlogging to help other wolves and to come to terms with his own transformation. Throughout the episodes, he struggles with maintaining a

Image of the Day: “Cemetery Deer” by Marilynn

This is our first ever Image of the Day post, and it comes from our very own Marilynn. In the photograph, we see several deer, each seemingly having chosen their own grave to lay on. But why? I would imagine the cool grass has a lot to do with it, but perhaps there’s a scientific

A Taste of Texas Part 6

The year was 1990. I was excited walking into the theater to watch Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III on its opening night. I avoided all media coverage about it (which was just Fangoria at the time), though I had seen a few promising photos. I wanted to be surprised. Would it live up to

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 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 in…
