Episode 75 - The Babysitters Club


Kids. Can't live with them. Can't--I don't know, perform some weird satanic ritual without getting an HOA complaint these days. Thank god for babysitters, right? The good. The bad. It doesn't really matter as long as you have one this Saturday night. Join Maddy and Corey this week as we discuss the creepy tension and loving 80s send-up of 'The House of the Devil', and a somehow more light-hearted murderous adventure in 'The Babysitter'.

Episode 74 - Breaking Up is Hard to Do


They say that breaking up is hard to do. Who says it? I don't know, people in the 60s, Neil Sadaka, The Carpenters. The point is, this episode is all about the inevitable heartbreak and murder that happens every time a relationship ends. We discuss the pitfalls of allowing Glenn Close to be sexy in 'Fatal Attraction' and the unfortunate love of a girl and some hands in 'May'.

Book of the Week: Strangely Enough by C. B. Colby / Happy Halloween


First of all, happy Halloween! Second, the book of the week is once more brought to you by nostalgia. One of my fondest memories as a kid was going to places like Goodwill or huge library book sales where you could pay 5-10 bucks for a large brown bag to fill with books to your heart's content. This was one of many finds I had that was decommissioned after a long and honorable service (1959 actually). With most of the stories being fairly easy to read, generally no more than 2-3 pages, it's such a great book to burn through and read to kids. Not to mention, it's not so morbid or dark that you'd have to deal with too many nightmares afterwards.

My Halloween Costume 2019 : Super Maria/Mario

With October finally winding down to Halloween, I don't have much to say today - except here's the costume I wore to work this past weekend for a Halloween event and later at a party with my buddy KP (playing Louigi, of course).

Drive-In Trailers: Cracker Jacks

So just this afternoon (meaning yesterday by the time this is posted) I realized I hadn't done any horror trailer compilations this year! Well, wait no more, my friends. This year, in no small part because I finally watched Fatal Attraction, the theme is all about the unbalanced, the insane, and the demented. Enjoy!

Horror Flick of the Week: Snow White (1987)



Before I saw Sarah Patterson in the brilliantly lush 'Company of Wolves', which will always be one of the most fantastic dark fairytale films, Snow White gave me nightmares. No, not the Disney one (though you can't tell me it's not seriously disturbing when she's stumbling through those woods), but a lesser known 1980s version that also happens to feature Sarah. I'm not going to say it's a big budget masterpiece, because it's not, but it's good. Even more surprising, it comes from Cannon pictures. You see, they had this series of kids films called 'Cannon Movie Tales' that I'm not ashamed to say I've devoured, despite the fact that one or two of them are painfully awkward and over the top. Snow White, however, is the best of the bunch.


But why am I featuring this in a horror blog? Because there is no mask or mirror that has ever been more traumatizing, and for that scene alone you absolutely need to see this movie.

Monstrous Post Cards

Thanks to a fun template from craftideas4kids.com I was able to throw together a couple of fun poster postcards for today's entry. It's been a rough week, but there's always time to play around with fun international and vintage posters anyway.
