Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight’ Promotional Pin (1995)

I have found myself falling into this collector ‘pin craze’ that’s been going on lately (thanks in large part to Creepy Company), so because of that I also find myself searching eBay from random promotional pins from yesteryear.  And upon a recent search……I found this!


Truth be told, I am a Tales From The Crypt junkie.  I love anything and everything that has to do with the comics, the show, and The Cryptkeeper.  And the movie Demon Knight might be one of my favorite ‘fun’ horror movies ever.  Sooooooo – not a huge surprise that my trigger finger is itchy to snatch up this pin off of eBay.  But before I do, I am going to give you the reader the chance to snatch it up before me because that’s the kind of guy I am.  I care about the horror people.  So, if you would like to grab it like a rabbit, then head on over to the listing HERE and it can be yours for less than $10 (including shipping).  Enjoy, boys and ghouls!

WTF Did I Just Watch: Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell (1987)

As I was scrolling through the ‘Horror’ section on Netflix a few weeks ago, I realized that I’m just bored with a lot of the offerings on there.  Then my friend Chris told me about something that he and his son had watched.  Something gloriously bad.  Something from the 80’s.  Something called Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell!  Who’s Mad Ron, you ask?  This is Mad Ron!


Oh, hi Mad Ron!  He sure looks like a character.  Ok – so what the hell is Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell?  Well, it’s a terribly shot movie from 1987 where a ventriloquist named Nick and his zombie dummy named Happy show the audience in a movie theater (who happen to be zombies) old schlocky trailers and TV spots from various horror movies from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.  While this is going on, Mad Ron is locked up in the projection room (see pic above) for everyone’s safety.  In between the trailers are spoofy shorts involving the zombies in the movie theater that seem to go on forever…..and ever…..and ever.  Oh hey look – that zombie is pouring blood on his popcorn instead of butter!  For 15 minutes.  We got the joke in the first 30 seconds.

This movie screams the 80’s and that’s what I loved about it.  And I actually saw some trailers that I had never seen before, like Three On A Meathook or The Maniacs Are Loose.  There are some old favorites as well like Deep Red, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Black Christmas (under one of it’s original titles Silent Night, Evil Night).  It almost felt like I was watching a snuff film at times, and I may or may have not taken a shower after my viewing.  So, if you enjoy 80’s horror or just really bad movie productions – then please do yourself a favor and seek out Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell on Netflix.  If it’s been taken down from there, then seek it out on DVD on Amazon.  Now take a bow Nick and Happy!


What’s Your Favorite Mask From ‘Halloween III: Season Of The Witch’?

During these election times where we have to decide between a dumbass and a liar (up to you to decide who is who) for the presidency, my right to vote is now more important than ever.  Sarcasm overflowing there, I think we can use that right to vote on something more meaningful……..like what is your favorite mask from Halloween III: Season Of The Witch?!

For me, I give my vote to the skull.  I’ve always had a bit of thing for skeletons, so no surprise with my choice.  Not much of a witch guy and the pumpkin is too cute (except when snakes and bugs are coming out of it’s head), so for me it’s the skull all day every day.  The great news is that you can grab a replication of these masks over at Trick Or Treat Studios.  Btw, I stumbled upon a a great ad from an old Starlog magazine for the original Don Post version masks that you could purchase, with the skull being the cheapest which is maybe another reason why I like it the most.  Take a look below and feel free to share what YOUR favorite mask is!


Have You Ever Wanted A ‘Monster Squad’ Lunch Box?

I miss my old He-Man lunchbox.  Sure that’s a random admission, but I was thinking the other day of a simpler time when I would bust out that lunch box in grade school and feel like nothing in the world could stop me!  There were never really any horror-themed lunch boxes though, and for that I was deeply saddened.  Which is what makes today a great day because the company 8-bit ZOMBIE is releasing a pretty rad lunch box based on the 1987 kids horror movie……The Monster Squad!


I’m making a PB&J sandwich as we speak to put in that bad boy.  But seriously, how awesome is that??  The artwork (in the style of Scooby Doo of course) is perfect, and not only do you get the lunch box (which comes in red or black)…..but you get that equally awesome pint glass too!  I’ve seen 8-bit ZOMBIE’s work before and they do a great job. These will be going on sale today, October 14th at 11am PST.  Price will be $45.  You can head on over to the site HERE and grab one and while you’re there, I would personally grab one of those Tarman Halloween hanging decorations before they’re gone.  Oh – and not only will there be lunch boxes based on The Monster Squad, but also a great Monster Squad Member Pack with patches, stickers, and more!

On Second Thought: I Kinda Like ‘Halloween II’ More Than ‘Halloween’!

Calm down, calm down.  And please put the pitchforks away.  It you read the title of the post and are already shouting obscenities at the computer screen, allow me to piss you off some more so you can shout more of them at me.  Now look, I love John Carpenter’s original Halloween.  It was groundbreaking, creepy, had a great soundtrack, and introduced us to one of the most iconic horror villains ever in Michael Myers.  I can go on and on about the level of awesomeness that is and was Halloween.  But…….I have to be honest.  If I’m sitting at home on Halloween night, and I’m thinking of which Halloween movie I want to pop into the ol’ Blu-ray player……..I’m gonna go with Halloween II.


Perhaps it’s the fact that I can’t stop staring at Jamie Lee Curtis’ wig in the movie.  Or maybe it’s because I laugh every time drunk ass Ben Tramer gets hit by the ambulance. But there’s no denying that for me, Halloween II is much more entertaining than the first. It’s more of a straight up 80’s slasher movie, and I’m ok with that.  Michael Myers is way more brutal here as well – using scalpels, syringes, and hot tubs to dispose of his victims. Speaking of hot tubs…..oh my god, I just remembered why I love Halloween II so much!


Well obviously I was alluding to the infamous hot tub scene where we get to see Pamela Susan Shoop’s near perfect breasts (ahhh screw it, they are perfect) – but I wanted to class up this post and show a pic of her looking innocent in her nurse’s outfit.  And speaking of nurse’s outfits, that is another thing that I love about Halloween II:  The hospital setting.  I don’t know why, but I find it creepy to have a maniac running (or walking briskly) around a conveniently desolate hospital.  If the hospital food doesn’t kill you, Michael Myers will.  Zing!  But anyway, thank you for letting me gush about my love for Halloween II.  Hopefully this year when you have your Halloween franchise marathon, you’ll appreciate this sequel even more and also appreciate Pamela Susan Shoop’s luscious hooters.  Shout out to Al Bundy.

Random Halloween Costume Ideas: Sammi Curr From ‘Trick Or Treat’ (1986)

Upon sitting here thinking about what I could go as for Halloween this year, numerous options crossed my mind:  Barf from Spaceballs, a zombiefied Lemmy Kilmister, or maybe a parrot?  And then it hit me like a lightning bolt!  Has anyone ever gone as Sammi Curr from the 1986 heavy metal horror flick Trick Or Treat?  A quick Google search led me to no results.  Could this be the holy grail of untouched Halloween costumes???


Oh this costume would be a piece of cake.  Just head on down to the local S&M store to get some of the clothing accessories.  Then rip a perfectly good black sheer shirt to shreds.  Next, get an 80’s metal hair wig from literally any Halloween costume shop.  And finally, add some burn make-up effects onto your face and chest, or if you really want to make it realistic – just burn yourself for real.  It’ll heal up just fine.  Now remember, I’m just thinking out loud here about my great Halloween costume idea, so none of you bastards better steal it!  If I see a bunch of Sammi Currs running around LA this year, I swear I’ll lose my shit.  Happy Halloween, everyone!

Monday Bloody Monday: ‘Meat Grinder Death’ From ‘Slaughterhouse’ (1987)

While being bored on a Friday night recently, I discovered the 1987 horror/comedy slasher Slaughterhouse.  It’s a charming little story about a father and son who own a, you guessed it…..slaughterhouse!  They’re in danger of losing it to some big shots in town, so of course they decide to kill everyone to get even.  Hilarity (both intentional and not) ensues, and I have to say that it was actually a refreshing watch.

Sooooooo, welcome to Monday Bloody Monday where I’m going to highlight a scene from the movie where Buddy Bacon (of course that’s his name) and his dimwitted son Lester take justice into their own hands and into their own meat grinder.  Gotta love Buddy’s facial expressions during this scene.  God bless 80’s horror and god bless Slaughterhouse!  Oh – I almost forgot!  I’m going to include a special PSA from the movie that warns you about smoking in the movie theater.  Because that apparently happened in the 80’s.  Enjoy!

Whaaaat? George Romero Did A ‘Night Of The Living Steelers’ Mini-Doc For The NFL Network??

So, upon watching my usual Thursday Night Football game on the NFL Network last night I was a bit startled (in a good way) to see a promo for this:

Well, talk about an early Halloween treat!  It looks as though George Romero did a mini-documentary for The Timeline series on the NFL Network called ‘Night Of The Living Steelers’.  And it looks to show the connection and correlation between Night Of The Living Dead and the Pittsburgh Steelers around the time the film was made and released.  Just seeing Romero walk onto Heinz Field at a game in Pittsburgh from the trailer is enough to make me tune in.  ‘Night Of The Living Steelers’ will air on October 5th at 8PM EST on the NFL Network, so do yourself a favor along with me and check it out so you can see George waving that Terrible Towel!

Halloween Costume Roundup: Sexy Michael Myers And Leatherface!

It’s almost time for Halloween!  Only a little more than a month away and we get to see all of the creepy costumes that everyone can come up with to scare all of the little boys and ghouls.  Oh – and we’ll also get to see a bunch of large breasts on display for no real reason, other than to show off some large breasts.  Case in point?  Let’s take a look at this ‘Sexy’ Michael Myers costume:


It actually took me a few minutes to realize that she was actually holding a bloody knife in her hand.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen – that is the ‘Sexy’ Michael Myers costume.  See, it says ‘Halloween’ up on the upper left section of the jumpsuit!  And on the back it has a picture of Michael Myers’ face, so there’s that as well in case you get confused as to what the costume is.  Wouldn’t it be more effective if she was wearing an actual Michael Myers mask over her head and still had her cleavage popping out?  Why wouldn’t she just wear the………oh, right.  She doesn’t want to mess up her hair that took two hours to do.  Got it.

As much as a love sexy clothes on women, I never really understood the ‘sexy horror costume’ phenomenon.  I would get way more turned on if a girl was wearing a Leatherface mask and smelled like she hadn’t bathed in 2 weeks.  Kind of like this costume below!


Goddammit.  Nevermind.  There is no hope.  The knee-high leather boots are a nice touch though.  It would be kinda hard to chase victims with your chainsaw in those btw. Anyway, if you want to get your hands on the ‘Sexy’ Michael Myers costume, you can do so HERE and if you would like to be ‘Sexy’ Leatherface this year, you can find that right HERE.  And if you got a boner looking at these costumes, then not only are you easy to please – but I would advise you not to go out on Halloween night because you’ll likely die and/or explode from boner overload.

Review: Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood (2016)

Ahhhhh – another year and another trip to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood!  When the news broke about the lineup of mazes this year, people were in a bit of a frenzy, and for good reason because a lot of your favorite horror icons were finally going to be on the same bill!  I’m talking Freddy, Jason, Michael, Leatherface, Krampus…..ok, maybe Krampus isn’t a horror icon, but we’ll get to him later on in the review.  The question is, would it all be worth it?  And would HHN jack the prices up even more this year?  Yes to both of those questions!  So let’s go from worst to first and get it going…..    Continue reading
