Born of a mother who loves horror fiction, a father enamored with conspiracy theories, and raised by her true-crime expert grandmother, Marilynn has never been a stranger to the creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky and lives by the motto "Halloween Is Everyday". While taking a creative writing course Marilynn found many of her passions could be combined and expanded on through writing for fun, and she began to express her fondness for the peculiar things in life through her writing.

The New Munsters on Mockingbird Lane

A few weeks ago I wrote about one of the children’s shows from my childhood that I loved, Eerie, Indiana, and briefly touched on how startled I was every time the main character’s mother’s name Marilyn was said out loud, as it’s not a name I hear every day, but it is my name. Another

Eerie, Indiana Pop. 16,661

Revisiting a beloved show from your early childhood can be a wonderful stroll down memory lane. Or, it can end up being a frustrating trip into the questionable tastes of your youth. Today I would like to share with you my thoughts on one such show I chose to re-watch, almost 25 years after I

Elusive Black Cats of Texas

The Legend The legends of black cats living in and around the Piney Woods region of East Texas and Central Texas Hill Country have been told for generations. My stepfather, who would often take us boating in a lake outside of Tyler, was the first person to tell me of the cats when I was

I Learn More About the Voorhees Boy

I Have Seen Several of the Friday the 13th Movies Throughout My Life Some fully, but most in bits and pieces. The first movie of the franchise I remember seeing all the way through is Jason Takes Manhattan. My step-dad set up a double-feature for me one rainy summer break day, with Predator 2. I

Valentine (2001): A Review

Do you remember this movie? I think Valentine pretty much disappeared within a few years of its release, but I did find some fans out there while researching on the web. I remember when I saw it in theaters. February 16th, 2001, with a large group of my friends. Weekly movie theater night was a

Let’s Talk About Mummies

Halloween and the way we celebrate it today is the marriage of several different traditions giving homage to the thin line between the living and the dead and remembering our ancestors. Traditions that are not necessarily related to Halloween, but are still all about that veil and ancestry, can be fun and lighthearted. Other traditions

October Mood Music 2019: Part One

Tuesday, October 1st: Creepshow OST (1982) Recommended track for a Halloween Party: ANY! Composed by John Harrison, this album means a lot to me as it’s the score for one of my favorite films, my father and I used to try to learn riffs together from it, it helps keep me pumped and focused when

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,

The Curious Case of Spontaneous Human Combustion

The Gist The human body has to reach a temperature of about 3,000 degrees in order to be reduced to ashes. Spontaneous Human Combustion (or SHC as I shall be referring to it today to reduce finger fatigue) is when a human being catches on fire without a detectable ignition point or fuel source. In
