Well into my Halloween marathon, now...

...we've had near zero trick-or-treaters on our street, as all the action in our neighborhood (Capitol Hill) is a few blocks south of here, on East Capitol Street, which turns into a big party for the evening.

So, I've got plenty of peace and quiet and no doorbell ringing every five minutes, and can concentrate on finishing a new cartoon and grooving on my MST3K Halloween Marathon.

Started with Attack Of The Giant Leeches, continued the aquatic guy-in-a-monster-suit vibe with Blood Waters Of Dr. Z, moved on to The Brain That Wouldn't Die, and digging on some more mad science now with Bride Of The Monster: "It's Bela's best scene, and he's not even in it!"

Started off with 'Ring of Terror', then 'Attack of the Eye Creatures' (the two peeping toms were more disgusting than the creatures), now I'm watching 'Bride of the Monster'. I plan on watching RiffTrax' 'Ghosthouse' later on, and then 'Frankenstein Island' if I have time.

For the most part, my time at RiffTrax tonight was hysterical. We saw them do Anaconda (the giant snake film). Thanks Michael J Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy for the good show. This was my second show I saw you guys do live, and it was great. Kudos to you.

I think I'll stop by the bakery before the Rifftrax event tonight. My understanding is that the Anaconda don't want none unless I've got buns.

OT - Ghost Stories
2 laughs

10 replies Comment-icon

I don't know if anyone here was familiar with radio personality Art Bell who hosted an overnight call in radio program in the 1990's on Coast to Coast.. The subject matter of his show was strictly paranormal in theme, anything from alien abduction to time travel to Bigfoot sightings. He had some nights only aliens could call in, and the callers really believed they were from outer space. So yeah, you can imagine it was entertaining, and then I worked nights...

Anyway every Halloween he only took calls from people with personal ghost stories to share. Some of these stories were really creepy. Especially when I was working alone in the middle of the night in a huge old warehouse. Those Halloween shows are archived if you are interested.

This Year's Halloween Viewing

Since Iguanaman listed his ideal Halloween viewing list, I figured I would share my Halloween Netflix queue, which I am just on the verge of successfully completing. I will accompany the ones I already viewed with my ratings out of five stars, even though some of my ratings may be embarrassingly dubious.

1. Manhunter (**)
2. Epidemic (***)
3. Black Sheep (****)
4. May (****)
5. Cemetery Man (****)
6. Zombie (****) (I suspect this was a bad movie, but the visual effects are so good and It's so much better than other non-Romero zombie movies that I was pretty generous with it)
7. Vault of Horror (****)
8. Kuroneko (*****)
9. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (***)
10. Trilogy of Terror (***)
11. Torture Garden (***)
12. Thirst (***)
13. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (***)
14. Fear(s) of the Dark (***)
15. 13 Frightened Girls & 13 Ghosts (**) (I actually like William Castle, but 13 Ghosts is horribly clunky, while 13 Frightened Girls is very entertainingly terrible)
16. The House of the Devil (****)
17. From Beyond the Grave (***)
18. The House that Dripped Blood (***)
19. Experiments in Terror (**)
20. The Birds (*****)
21. The Uninvited (****)
22. Vampyr
23. All Hallows Eve

I'm probably one of the last people to figure this out lol, but i was watching the 1977 movie The town that dreaded sundown and it never occurred to me until about halfway through the movie that the director and the silly cop were Charles Pierce. He looked so much younger than he did in Boggy creek 2 I almost missed him :)


(OT) Radio Halloween Super Show 2014!

Hey guys, it's that time of year again! Tomorrow is my annual really awesome Halloween special for my show on the local community radio station. Last year you guys made it a serious night to remember. The playlist was 95% MSTie built. I'd love to do that again this year! Make requests and suggestions to make this year even better. Here is last year's playlist for reference: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAhJzhplniDRQZFARmKKLbhb69hHqS9LS

I want songs that are goofy, spooky, strange and out there. The only guidelines I have from the FCC are that the songs can't contain profanity (nothing more than what you might hear on an episode of our beloved MST3k is allowed on air), no blatantly obscene material and no actual calls to violence. (Murder ballads are okay, though.)

You'll be able to listen in, if you so desire, on WDBX.org. My show is Thursdays from 10pm-Midnight (Central Time.)

Theiguanaman2 - 3 days ago

Okay. I will never, ever, have the time to actually do the marathon to this extent, but my dream marathon for Halloween has the following films:
1. Creature From the Black Lagoon
(and possibly the riffed version of revenge of the creature)
2. Frankenstein
3. Dracula
4. Wolfman
5. Scared Shrekless (because I can)
6. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (the best Halloween film in my opinion because it tried something new and didn't rehash a stupid masked murderer0
7. Gremlins I and II
8. Nosferato
9. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
10. Little Shop of Horrors (1960 Roger Corman Film)
11. Little Shop of Horrors (1980's musical with th edirector's cut)
12. Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber on Fleet Street
11. Edward Scissorhands
12. The Nightmare Before Christmas
13: FrankenWeenie
14.Ernest: Scared Stupid
15. Trick or Treat
16.Critters
17. BeetleJuice
18. *I'd have an intermission with the King of the Hill Halloween Special and and MST3K episode*
19. Original Godzilla
20. Mothra
21. Mars Attacks
22. Night of the Living Dead
*I sleep for a couple hours, come back and watch more that I couldn't think of*
These films are in no particular order. They were just the ones I could think of off the top of my head.

It's all but official: Benedict Cumberbatch will be Doctor Strange!

A lot of folks were thinking Joaquin Phoenix, but he begged off at the last second. There was quite a list of potential candidates, but for me, it was BC. Why do you ask (or care)?

Because of all of the candidates, only BC could say "By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth/the Vishanti/insert quasi-deific extradimensional being" with a straight face and have the audience buy it.
