Marilynn

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.

Ep #1: Emma Crawford | Creepy Colorado

Marilynn takes us on a journey in the first-ever episode of Creepy Colorado, which is her very own creation. Note from the Editor I’m a big believer in learning by doing.

Slime on the Sidewalk

My second September tale of weird is about one of the most strange things I’ve ever seen in full daylight with my own two eyes. I was 12 years old and on summer break from school. A friend had invited me to his house to watch some cartoons and hang out for a few hours.

Three Lights Over Texas

Since September is my birth month and 2020 has been a strange year I thought I would dedicate my articles this month to the strangeness that has occurred to me in my life. The first story I would like to tell is of the time I’m pretty sure I saw an alien craft. I was

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

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

Mardi Gras Horror: Gothic Harvest

A Couple of Weeks Ago I Was Down the Internet Rabbit Hole I was looking at various lists of horror movies based around holidays, as one does at 7am on a Sunday. As I expected to find, there’s several based on or around big holidays like Halloween and Christmas and the rest of the holidays

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
