32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #18

Peter Lorre on Suspense,Peter Cushing on This is Your Life, &Up From the Depths! Old-time radio is truly a blessing. Because not only did it give us stuff we can enjoy eighty years later, but it also gave people like Peter Lorre a paycheck when he was between other gigs. Or sometimes they were recorded during other gigs. Either way, we liked that these folks got paid. Here’s “Moment of Darkness” from 1943 and the show Suspense! Then we go to that standard bearer of celebrating...

32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #17

Kiss of the Tarantula! So after we talked about Night of the Living Dead: The Musical, I decided to see what else horror-wise had been turned into a musical. Apparently there is a Psycho: The Musical…with songs by Neil Diamond. I’m not sure Mr. Diamond was involved with the project directly, to be sure. Alas, there’s no video, but you can read an interview about it here. Many are the delights to be found at Zombo’s Closet, but I greatly appreciate their array of movie pressbooks an...

Night of the Living Dead: The Musical,Jack Benny Halloween, &The Land of the Minotaur! I’ve often said that somebody needed to turn Night of the Living Dead into an opera. Well, apparently it’s been at least turned into a proper stage musical. Here is the “title track.” I wish the sound had been working properly…a few people you can’t bloody well hear. Next, we go to 1947 and Jack Benny…we’ve shared a number of his Halloween shows in the past. And while this came out at the ri...

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...

Looking Back at Scream’s Legacy of Revitalizing the Slasher Genre

In the eyes of many horror fans, Scream is considered a modern classic, a new capstone atop the mountain of ‘70s and ‘80s slasher films that took what it had seen and infused satire, after running everything through a tightly-meshed strainer. It was a new and refreshing dish for those who had feasted upon killers like Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees for almost two decades, deciding to splay the insides of the films, like their victims, openly discussing the clichés, tropes, ...

Virus Reincarnation Eradicating the Plague With Sex

A perhaps too relevant eroge known as Virus Reincarnation has arrived, tasking players with controlling a capable female as she battles zombies afflicted with a horrid plague, the only cure (after excessive physical harm) being the ejection of semen from the infected male’s body. Come the year 2020, a strange virus that feasts on sperm […]

Chucky Season 1 Episode 1 Recap & Analysis: Death by ‘Misadventure’

Diving into a franchise that has produced eight feature films certainly isn’t child’s play, but the latest adventure centered around everyone’s favorite homicidal doll has one thing going for it that its predecessor did not. Whereas Don Mancini, the writer for every other film in the series, wasn’t involved in the 2019 Child’s Play reboot, he’s back at the helm for Chucky’s first venture into television. As a result, this adaptation automatically benefits from the feeling that it stays true to t...

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.

However, her later show, The Lucy Show, had a third season episode called “Lucy and the Monsters.” In it, she meet...

Back 4 Blood Review: Familiar Zombie Action, Even More Replayability

Turtle Rock Studios rose to prominence over a decade ago by developing the Left 4 Dead series. Ever since the release of the excellent sequel and its surprisingly emotional DLC, fans have been wanting another entry. However, Valve’s avoidance of all things with a “3” has led to over a decade spent playing custom campaigns and mods instead. Now Turtle Rock is back with Back 4 Blood, which delivers the familiar undead co-op action but with plenty of changes that will throw longtime players for a l...
