THE LOST BOYS hits a snag

The planned reboot of CHARMED and the development of THE LOST BOYS property into a television series, with both projects supposed to air on the CW network, have both likewise been pushed back. They will NOT debut this year. We might get to see them NEXT year. Only time will tell if either ever makes…

Have You Seen This Cake?

Most of my friends, my close friends, anyway, know that I write for this and several other websites. This being the case, I am not infrequently sent vampire-related stuff—or werewolf-related stuff, or zombies, or Horror in general; you get the idea—in case I might want to use the stuff that was sent to generate an…

The Barnabas Collins Van Rides Again*

(*It’s just a little smaller, is all.) I, like all DARK SHADOWS fans present and past, have often wondered why the show, or more factually some toy production company, didn’t capitalize on its wild success back during its original run on ABC television by releasing a series of toys. They sure missed a great opportunity…

Review: THE MONSTER

I was fully expecting to review this one for our sister site, werewolves.com, but I decided it is a better fit for this one. I’ll explain why momentarily. First let me say that I had been waiting with much anticipation for the video release of this movie. It received stellar reviews during its film festival…

Some Love for the Zombies

This is a plea on behalf of zombies. They are close cousins to our own beloved vampires, after all. The stinkier, less articulate cousins, but relatives, nonetheless. They are reanimated dead bodies, just like vampires. Yes, they have a hankering for brains instead of blood, and they don’t hold up so well. The “immortality” they…

Save Romania’s Bears

There is a time and a place for everything. For every purpose under Heaven, as both the Bible and that song by The Byrds tell us. Turn, turn, turn. For example, I am a staunch environmentalist and animal advocate. No, I’m not a PETA person; they do some good things, but those folks at PETA…

Spreadin’ the Love for Horror Décor

It will come as no surprise to my frequent readers that I love me some kitsch. Particularly cute kitsch. Last week I posted about some Horror-themed bath bombs that would allow a bather to luxuriate in a tub of bloody red, scented water, ala Elizabeth Bathory. Before that, it was monster movie-themed Pop-tarts. (These last…

Frozen Dead Awaits Reanimation

Y’all forgive me for using an article from Fox “News” as a springboard. I promise you, if the article had anything to do with current affairs or politics, I’d pass it up, or at least make sure that I labeled it as a probable piece of fiction before citing it. It doesn’t, though. This is…

Ring(er)s

It’s funny how a series can be completely played out, like the last thing in the world you want is another sequel, but you wait long enough and a sequel seems like a fine idea. The idea is fresh again, vibrant. That’s how it is with THE RING franchise. When they made the original sequel—no,…

Bloody Good Pancakes

This time of year, and moreso as we get closer to the amping up of Mardi Gras and the beginning of Lent, you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot about pancakes. Kiwanis clubs will be hosting all-you-can-eat pancake dinners, churches will be making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday, for those of…

Take a Bath(ory)

I always hated Valentine’s Day. Many a year I spent single, and Valentine’s was like a slap in the face, the rubbing of some salt into the wound. It was a cruel day. Beyond this, I felt that it was a wholly manufactured holiday, pure commercialism, a day when people—well, men, were forced to spend…

Keepin’ It Wild

Given the length of time that Romania suffered under a Communist dictatorship, it’s a wee bit miraculous that it retained so much of its natural beauty. It didn’t suffer the rampant, unrestricted pollution common to Communist regimes, not to the extent that other Commie countries have, to the extent that, say, China, still does. Romania…
