Let’s kick it off old-school with a fun video that only recently re-emerged from obscurity after New Line took legal issue with Will Smith taking the piss out of Freddy Kruger and supposedly got the original video destroyed as part of an out-of-court legal settlement, although a few poor-quality off-air VHS prints circulated from time […]Read more "Monster Monster II – A Nightmare on My Street"
I know, I know, seems like I only pop out of my hole at Halloween and then snooze the rest of the year. But as I have finally really given up the Book of Faces this time (at least until Christmas) maybe I will become the better blogger I was born to be.

Note: This was written for a roundtable on another site that fell through due to lack of outside response, so I have graciously stolen it back for your Halloween reading pleasure. With all the great older genre stuff that is turning up on Amazon Prime, it was suggested that everyone pick something suitably weird and […]Read more "Prime Cuts: The Black Sleep (1956)"

Started off with the fantastic documentary That Guy Dick Miller (2014), currently available streaming on Amazon Prime. Miller was one of the most prolific […]Read more "What I’m Watching"
Finally got the blog up and running again and real life is already interfering with an unscheduled interruption. My brand-new computer system came with a defective battery, which I only figured out after disposing of my old system. So the new one is on its way to the service center as we speak for repair […]Read more "Grrrr….."
Why were the 80s all about the Post-Apocalypse anyway? Even the music videos all took place After The End.Read more "Music (videos) for the Post-Apocalypse"
As per my previous post, B-Fest 2020 dates have been announced early this year. Looks like it will be February 7th and 8th at Northwestern University. They have been poor about keeping the website updated the last few years, but when tickets go on sale, (which has been anywhere from Novemebr to the first week […]Read more "B-Fest 2020 Dates"
*NOTE* This has been sitting in my drafts folder 80% complete for 6 months. I got to a certain point, hit the wall and blanked on how to deal with the pain (the reason why will be obvious). Then I refused to post anything else because I hadn’t finished my annual B-Fest write up (as […]Read more "B-Fest 2019 – Crap and More Crap"
