“What? No Pudding?!” 5 of Horror’s Most Awkward Family Dinners

Thanksgiving is just two days away, and for a lot of Americans that means three things: turkey, football, and awkward family dinners. My particular brand of awkwardness this year will involve my grandmother finding out that I have blue and purple hair. Though it's hardly earth-shattering, I am really dreading that conversation, fiends. But if … Continue reading “What? No Pudding?!” 5 of Horror’s Most Awkward Family Dinners

31 Days of Halloween: 24-Hour Horrorthon

I take my Halloween horror marathons very seriously. I take as much time off work as possible, and I usually start my spreadsheet planning in August (though I'm a little behind this year). I'll write all about this year's week-long marathon starting tomorrow and talk a bit about how I plan it out — don't … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween: 24-Hour Horrorthon

Romero Week — The Crazies

Welcome to Romero Week, fiends. (I’m sorry that I’m starting on Wednesday instead of Monday — I got a late start because I fell victim to a monster migraine.) We’re all mourning the loss of one of the greatest horror directors of all time. Most of the headlines I see from mainstream outlets are memorializing him … Continue reading Romero Week — The Crazies

Programming Note: Remembering Romero

Today is a sad day for horror, my dear fiends. George A. Romero, legendary director and godfather of the zombie movie genre, has passed away. I had a fun Monster Monday planned for tomorrow based on a movie I watched last night, but in light of this news I don't think it would be appropriate … Continue reading Programming Note: Remembering Romero
