Radio adapalooza, The Veil, &The Curse of the Black Widow! I have no idea where I found the first old school radio ad for a horror movie, but they’re kind of amazing. Deborah Rolski put together a playlist on YouTube for them, which includes my personal favorite, Werewolves on Wheels. Since we need some more Karloff–like always–this is from his series, The Veil. This was never actually broadcast and was finally seen in its original form in the 1990s. Enjoy this episode: “Desti...

The 15 Best Halloween TV Episodes

Halloween is the one time of the year when television writers get to let their hair down a little bit. Normally constrained by the confines of their genre, a spooky holiday like Halloween gives shows the freedom to take their storylines in a different direction. A traditional sitcom can have ghosts in it all of a sudden, and a children's show can embrace slasher film tropes. The opportunities are virtually limitless! But while it's fun to see familiar characters in a context that their show woul...

Vincent Price being an awesome human,The Hilarious House of Frightenstein, &The Bermuda Triangle The other day, we had a lot of Vincent Price (you can never have too much), but someone posted a great thread about some of the things Price did for the benefit of others. Here’s a short statement he made during a broadcast of The Saint (from either 1947 or 48). I mean, we already had enough reasons to think he was awesome, but that ranks highly. And check out that Twitter link. ...

A Disney HalloweenThe Lucy Show, & Dominique! Here’s a completely out of print Disney Halloween special from 1983. It’s primarily existing Disney bits spliced together to form a holiday medley, if you will. But for nostalgia’s sake, I’m glad it’s online. Now here’s something interesting: I went to see if there was an I Love Lucy Halloween episode. There was not. However, her later show, The Lucy Show, had a third season episode called “Lucy and the Monsters.” In it, she meet...

Chucky Review: Everyone's Favorite Killer Doll Makes A Bloody Jump To TV

Horror franchises come and go, but Chucky is forever. The tiny ginger killing machine has survived over the years because his franchise is so fluid. Rather than stick rigidly to familiar beats, series creator and driving force Don Mancini has kept the "Child's Play" franchise fresh by changing it as it went along. Changing things up so drastically from film to film could've backfired, but Mancini and company managed to make it all feel perfectly natural. So much so that we could easily believe t...

Hollywood Squares,The World of Vincent Price, &Madhouse! Okay, taking a moment to share this because it’s just such a great idea. Taking the idea of a charcuterie board and using Halloween candy instead. One day after the apocalypse when I can host parties again, this is happening. Now onto today’s shenanigans. Apparently, I stumbled into a Vincent Price rabbit hole, because I came across a “greatest hits” of his appearances on Hollywood Squares. If I had been playing the game, I’d have c...

Why We Need More Halloween Movies Like Nightbooks

Halloween is almost here, folks! Which means every store you walk into features an overwhelming abundance of Christmas items, because f— All Hallows’ Eve, amirite? Why is Halloween such a glossed-over holiday? I love some Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations, but Halloween packs a ghoulish punch — whatever that means — and is perhaps the only day throughout the entire year where you can dress up as Indiana Jones and not get punched in the face. Yet, as the years go by, the candy-coated holida...

House!,Halloween With The Addams Family, The Headless Horseman, and Blacker Than the Night! I know we’ve posted this trailer before, but I shared it with someone on Facebook earlier…and it truly is the greatest Japanese movie trailer ever. The film is House, or as it’s pronounced in the trailer: “HOUSE!” Next, we head back to 1964 for the holiday, as it can only be experienced with the Addams Family. This is posted by MGM and it says “Full Episode” but the titles and theme son...

2000 Plus, Tales of Tomorrow, &The Shape of Things to Come! There hasn’t been any real sci-fi this year yet, and Halloween is the home of horror, but also science fiction, both cheesy and dairy-free. First things first, we go into the realm of old-time radio with “The Green Thing,” an episode of 2000 Plus from 1950. Next, from radio to live television. The show Tales of Tomorrow was an attempt to do science fiction for grownups, airing from 1951 to 1953. And fo...

32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #8

Before we begin, we need to pause once more for a word from our sponsor. I always find it fascinating what people do and how they do it. I’m that guy who watches all of the “We got this real life person to critique people doing their stuff in movies” videos, as an example. One that showed up recently that appears to be squarely in the jurisdiction of what we’re doing here…is this one. While we are getting more feature films from the 1970s than I thought possible, I...

Okay, So Who the Hell is This Mose Guy?

As far as song mysteries go, it doesn’t hold a candle to the one that’s still outstanding about the origins of “Zombie Jamboree,” but it finally clicked in my head that some guy called Mose was getting a lot of attention in songs. There was “Mysterious Mose,” “Old Man Mose,” and even the sequel to “Old Man Mose” called “Old Man Mose Ain’t Dead.” Was it the same guy? Why were people peeking in his windows and getting freaked out by him all the time? Did anyone even bother to knock and check on hi...

It’s Louis Armstrong and his band with “Skeleton in the Closet.” And this is what I was looking for when I came across the above… a live version of “Old Man Mose” by Louis Armstrong. But instead I found this: Teresa Brewer rocking it along with the Firehouse Five Plus Two. And the band is made up of all members of Disney Animation. Pretty much all...

Rox of Spazhouse sent me info she had found about the origins of folk horror, which should be of interest to all of you, since you all probably dig horror and you are indeed folks. After reading Rue Morgue’s Halloween Issue, an article spoke to me: “The Twisted Roots of Folk Horror.” The article mentions an entry into SXSW titled “Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched.” It appears that this is the end-all, be-all folk horror documentary, as it lasts three-plus hours and covers basically every...

32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #3

We’ve talked before about the genre of scary media for children. The main delivery system was vinyl albums. (Kids, ask your parents.) First thing I wanted to do today is point out one of the best archives of such retro weirdness: Scary Sounds of Halloween. If you want hours of sounds to delight and confuse your own children, they’ve got you covered. As always, I start down a train of thought and that leads me to stuff to share. Like Alfred Hitchcock’s Ghost Stories For Young People. ...

Halloween Kills Featurette: It's A Haddonfield Reunion For Those Traumatized By Michael Myers

"Halloween Kills" is two weeks away from bringing Michael Myers back to put us on the edge of our seats in theaters (or on Peacock, if ya nasty). While we wait for the next round of slicing and dicing from Haddonfield's most notorious slasher, Universal Pictures has released a new featurette that shines a light on all the returning cast members from the original "Halloween" in 1978. A few of the movie's stars are reprising their roles over 40 years later, though there's at least one character wh...

Ranking John Carpenter's 10 Best Film Scores

A John Carpenter movie is as recognizable as an AC/DC track. There's a griminess to the cinematography, a cheap but immersive realness to the sets. Faces repeat: Kurt Russell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasance, and the rubbery visage of William Shatner. And then there's the music. Like Angus Young on guitar, we always know what a John Carpenter movie sounds like. There's a synthesizer at the heart of the score, sometimes flanked by Fender guitars and heavy percussion. Most of his compositions h...
