31 Days of Halloween: Totally ’80s Horrorthon

Greetings and salutations, fiends! Yesterday was all about the classics, and today is all about the cheese.

31 Days of Halloween: Universal Monsters Horrorthon

It's finally here! My week-long horrorthon starts now, kiddies. I'll be updating all day, so keep checking back. I have a little less time this year than I have had in the past (I constantly reminisce about the week when I watched 50 horror movies...one day soon I'll do that again). If I had 168 … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween: Universal Monsters Horrorthon

Monster Monday: The Walking Dead

Monster Monday: The Walking Dead

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! As you probably know, The Walking Dead returns on Sunday. I have kind of a love-hate relationship with the show, but I watch it (and Talking Dead) religiously. Even when I'm feeling the hate – Glenn fell with his head away from the dumpster, not toward it! – I still love … Continue reading Monster Monday: The Walking Dead
