“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

If I had 168 … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween: Universal Monsters 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

Monster Monday: Ghostbusters

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today I have a slew of monsters for you from the endlessly quotable classic Ghostbusters. (I'm just doing original recipe Ghostbusters today. I actually enjoyed the remake a lot, but if I did a post on that movie I would just bombard you guys with Holtzmann gifs, so it wouldn't exactly qualify … Continue reading Monster Monday: Ghostbusters
