So with 2020 being it’s own horror show and Covid-19 still well in place. Halloween has become a little different this year. Normally we decorate, dress up and go trick or treating, followed with a party. I had to make the lemons we were dealt in to lemonade.
While the kids got some parts of their costumes, we can’t really go to house to house like we use to. At least in our area.. Sadly we almost have to skip Halloween this year. Almost…
We did go to the pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins. We picked up a bunch of candy and making them their favorite dinner. I have gone through my collection of movies and pulled out what horror/spooky movies for everyone to watch ALL DAY! Figured I’d start off with the classics like William Castle, and Ed Wood. Standard Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, and Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein and Lon Chaney’s (Jr.) Werewolf. Of course any and all Vincent Price movies hahaha.
For in between I have Elvira’s movie and her TV shows. A number of 80s classic horror, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Fright Night, etc. Then moving into the 90’s and current horror movies.
Not to mention that there is a few classic Wes Craven, Romero worked into the list hahaha. I think Tom Savini had his hand in every movie I have here, but I almost every movie hahaha. But it should be a good Halloween, not the best. But a good kicked back Halloween for everyone here.
Story time/Posts of Blood/reblog: I believe I have shared this story a few times in a number podcasts I’ve done over the years. But I don’t think I’ve wrote about it yet.
The movie Tremors as odd as it sounds has become vary near and dear to my heart. When I was younger, my Father worked with a college who his building as a sister campus. One of the rooms had a huge TV almost a mini theater if you would. About one a month or every other month, we would have a movie night there and order a lot of pizza, etc.
One day we rented Tremors because we hadn’t seen it yet. We fell in love with it haha. Later on the second one came out and another movie called Deep Rising. At that point started calling Worm Fest. As more Tremors movie kept coming out the more we added to the list.
So many great memories and times we shared. To this day I continued the tradition with my kids and friends. This something started by my Father and I and I hope my kids will keep this going. Now that we have new Tremors movie out now, it’s time to start the new year Worm Fest again!
But now that I’ve shared that with you. Please check this other post that triggered this is the memory. HMM Day 22 – Tremors
The balance of gore and feel good attitude is a perfect concoction for people that aren’t necessarily hard core horror fanatics like you and me. But that isn’t to say the movie is a baby class kind of horror flick.
Mike Le Han and Paul Gerrard teamed up to create a short video to aid in their pitch of Hellraiser: Origins a brand new reimagining of the world of hellraiser, sadly, it never came to be and until now, very few pieces of information is available on the project. today I run through the New pinhead, new leviathan and of course the new engineer, the coenobites!
The trailer was released on an independent website and on YouTube on 31 October 2013. Approximately two minutes (2:07) minutes long, it opens with ominous music and text fading in and out of the center frame:
Before there was man…
Before any life…
It then cuts to a top down view of a thin, disheveled man kneeling in a square of salt and lit candles, solving what fans of the franchise would recognize as the Lament Configuration from the original Hellraiser films. The top of the box opens and the man lets out a howl of agony, the camera rapidly zooming down and into the open box. It follows a twisting, convoluted tunnel of flesh, similar to a human intestine. The camera reaches the end of the tunnel where the view is entirely obscured by a bright light.
The shot fades in to reveal an apparent sea of writhing, naked human bodies covered in blood, with body parts and viscera scattered throughout. The camera continues to pan over the sea of bodies until reaching a platform, rising and gradually revealing a stylized version of Hellraiser’s Pinhead. The shot zooms slowly in to an extreme close up as Pinhead opens his eyes and music fades in. In a deep, inhuman voice he says “Welcome to Hell'”.
The scene then cuts to a wider shot of Hell, showing Pinhead standing on a platform, surrounded by an even larger sea of bodies. The shot flickers in and out, each time zooming further out and finally fading to Hellraiser: Origins and showing the web address for the project’s page.
Rather sad this did not come to light. Around the same time they were trying to get this project green light. Clive Barker announced that he was working on a reboot to the movie series. Sadly that also has not come to light. Instead we have Hulu’s Books of Blood…. Which was “okay”.. I’ll write about that later. Barker did also announce that he is coming out with a new book for this month.
Over the years, we have been blessed with iconic horror monsters that take to the screen and chill us to our core for years to come. From The Thing in The Thing, to the Xenomorph in Alien, to Predator, there are countless monsters to traumatize you. However, let’s discuss the monsters that appear once and disappear forever. Today on Top 5 Scary Videos, we bring you our list of the Top 5 Horror Movie Monsters You Only See Once.
Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallows Tide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.
According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christianized feast influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.
Typical contemporary festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related “guising”), attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing and divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows’ Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular, although in other locations, these solemn customs are less pronounced in favor of a more commercial and secular celebration. Because many Western Christian denominations encourage, although most no longer require, abstinence from meat on All Hallows’ Eve, the tradition of eating certain vegetarian foods for this vigil day developed, including the consumption of apples, colcannon, cider, potato pancakes, and soul cakes.
