Green Vs. Gaga

I’ve tried to be as fair as possible. I’ve waited, in order to let my thoughts and my opinions coalesce. I’ve gone back and watched the previous season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, subtitled HOTEL, and the second season of PENNY DREADFUL. I’ve compared the performances of Lady Gaga as the Countess on the former series…

The Highgate Vampire Returns!(?)

To paraphrase Eminem, “Look who’s back, back again, Highgate’s back! Tell a friend! Look who’s back look who’s back look who’s back look who’s back look who’s back look who’s back look who’s back…” Actually, considering this report comes to us from a tabloid site, I wouldn’t put any good money on his being back….

Scare Your Children Properly

It’s a simple fact: children need to be scared. If a child does not learn how to process fear during childhood, biology will nevertheless march inexorably onward, having its way with the kid, and the sad result will be an adult—in body—who is in no way prepared or even capable of dealing with life in…

Glass Ghost Globes

That’s not what they’re calling them, but they should. A deceased person can live on via the swirls in a colorful glass globe or heart-shaped artifice. Why not? Human beings have been seeking creative ways to get rid or preserve the remains of the dead for as long as their have been human beings. What…

Where have all the Clowns gone?

It could be that, as with a pimple, the gooey insides that served as the psychological impetus to the recent clown sighting phenomenon swelled to a head, a head that was subsequently lanced and then squeezed dry by the coming and passing of Halloween. If this is the case I’m not really surprised. Such a…

Revisiting the (Literary) Classics: Bram Stoker’s THE SQUAW

I told you last week how I’d determined to go back and read all Bram Stoker’s OTHER works. Other than what, you ask? Surely you jest! Stoker’s prose is always getting lost in the huge, all-engulfing, bat-winged shadow cast by his greatest creation, and that’s unfortunate because it has legs to stand on its own….

Eva Green Dodged a Buttery Bullet

Some months back, I penned (or keyboarded) a short, jocular article about Eva Green of PENNY DREADFUL. I discussed how, as is the case with most actresses who are also beautiful women and who choose to do nude scenes, her abilities as a thespian, which are more than considerable, often get overshadowed by her status…

Revisiting the (Literary) Classics: Bram Stoker’s THE GROWING GOLD

I’ve been on a Bram Stoker kick ever since reading David J. Skal’s excellent biography of the man a couple of weeks past. It really drove home for me the extent to which I have overlooked the majority of the man’s work. My love for the vampiric Count starring in Stoker’s (by far) most famous…

The Blood Waterfall of Antarctica

Let’s face it, you probably aren’t ever going to go there. Neither am I. Neither will most people. And let’s face it, there isn’t much of a reason why you should want to. I’d do it, just to say that I did, and some of the mountain ranges are spectacular. Other than that, it’s cold….

Now here’s a helpful little website of which we can all take advantage. They ought to make an app of it so that everyone in this digital age can benefit. It’s simple in concept, so simple that I’m surprised no one has thought of it before now, and super easy to use. Just go to…

The Slenderman Cometh

The documentary based on him cometh, that is. Based on the crime he inspired. You remember. The two middle schoolers who tried to murder their classmate by stabbing her 19 times in an effort to curry favor from Slenderman, a supernatural entity who doesn’t exist. (Or does he?) The victim survived, the two juvenile murderer…

There’s a party at the Graveyard!

If you were around this time last year—and I know you were—you may remember me reporting on a fancy, private shindig hosted by ATLAS OBSCURA that was held at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. (I coulda sworn it was just “Greenwood” Cemetery? Anybody else remember it that way? Is this another case of the…
