New Universal Monsters Masks

What I need is a warehouse and Bill Gates money. (I know. Don’t we all, right?) I would love to become a mask collector, but even more of a hindrance to the prospect than the costs involved is the lack of space to keep them should I buy them. I could settle for just a…Continue readingNew Universal Monsters Masks

Werewolf Art

Werewolf marks are nothing if not cultured, thus you should enjoy perusing this collection of werewolf artwork from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Now while in the interest of honesty I cannot guarantee that all these works are authentic—some of them might be modern-day creations fashioned to look like they are centuries old—they’re all…Continue readingWerewolf Art

The Wrestling Beasts of Castle Grayskull

It only took 30+ years for them to catch up with me. When I was a kid, I had three great overriding passions: Horror movies, professional wrestling, and comic books. Under these three umbrellas fell many subcategories. I loved the Masters of the Universe toyline, for example, and the cartoon. When I got a little…Continue readingThe Wrestling Beasts of Castle Grayskull

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 5

They were never cruel, these Christ-men. Not kind, most of them, but not cruel. To my mind, cruelty involves an intention to do one harm, to cause suffering in another for suffering’s sake. If any among the Christians treated me in a harsh manner, which some did, the priest foremost among these, I know that…Continue readingTHE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 5

The Hideous Hound of Cold Hollow

Is there really a werewolf-type creature roaming the wilds of Vermont? Or is it all a creative bit of ballyhoo? You can watch the short documentary film here. And read up on the legend here. Then you can decide. I admit that I’d never heard of the “Hound of Cold Hollow” before, and I’m well…Continue readingThe Hideous Hound of Cold Hollow

Upcoming Werewolves

There are a couple of lycanthropic cinematic projects—i.e. werewolf movies—coming up that I am excited about. Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive trailer for HUNTER’S MOON starring Thomas Jane, my favorite of Marvel’s Punishers (despite the fact that they screwed his origin all to hell) and the guy who got poor Dirk Diggler into trouble in…Continue readingUpcoming Werewolves

New Super7 Action Figures

I’m all about the Super7 ReAction Figures line, with one caveat: they’re too damn expensive for figures of that size, the 3 inches and change size, or as I think of them, the STAR WARS action figure size. (Telling my age here, but it was the STAR WARS line that made that size action figure…Continue readingNew Super7 Action Figures

Come and Knock on Their Door

How long has it been now since Wolf’s Museum of Mystery was destroyed in a tragic fire? Not even a year yet? It seems so surreal, even now. I’m so thankful that not everything was destroyed in the fire; a few pieces survived. And I’m so glad to see my friends, Wolf and Ali Mertz,…Continue readingCome and Knock on Their Door

TWIN PEAKS Goes to Graceland

It’s an unconventional choice, but would we really expect anything less from TWIN PEAKS? The official 30th anniversary celebration of the cult TV phenomenon will be taking place at Graceland and not in Washington State, where the series was filmed. Why? Why not! And series creator David Lynch is a big Elvis Presley mark, so…Continue readingTWIN PEAKS Goes to Graceland

THE HOWLING Getting Remade

My kneejerk reaction to hearing this news was to start singing that line from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. You know the one. The part right before “Oh, mama mia!” That’s right. “No no no no no no no!” Why attempt a remake of something that is perfect already, as the original THE HOWLING is? What they…Continue readingTHE HOWLING Getting Remade

Revisiting the Classics: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

Several of my friends were shocked to learn that I had never seen this movie all the way through. It’s one of those I’d watched in pieces but never sat down and viewed from beginning to end. Why didn’t I make it a point to check it out earlier than this previous week, when I…Continue readingRevisiting the Classics: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 4

For all the differences between us, the way the Christ-men spoke, their accents, they did not look much different from my people. The men were bearded and wore their hair no longer than their collars. They wore tunics and leather skirts. As it was springtime and the weather balmy they had no use for long…Continue readingTHE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 4

The Port Chatham Horror

I don’t want to be hypocritical. I just finished typing a scathing indictment of the stupid. In particular, people who will believe anything they read on the Internet without even considering that it might not be true or they might want to investigate to determine whether or not it is true before they start shouting…Continue readingThe Port Chatham Horror

Your Weekly Dose of Insanity

Good freakin’ grief, the stuff that people will believe! Anybody who thought that having the Internet would result in a more educated society has been woefully disappointed. If anything the Internet has made the problem worse because it allows false information to be spread more quickly, easily, virally, and has done nothing, can do nothing,…Continue readingYour Weekly Dose of Insanity

The Moons of 2020

I haven’t even started getting used to writing “2020” yet on any document where I’m supposed to list the date. If previous experience is any indicator, I should remember to start doing it by June at the earliest. (Although it may be easier because, as one of my credit cards expires in 2020, I’ve already…Continue readingThe Moons of 2020

Dogmen: Chicken or Egg?

With regards to all the paranormal phenomena we experience today, is there any reason to believe that it is a recent development? Much the opposite, I think. The evidence is overwhelming that such things have always been with us, although they may have changed form with time. Some paranormal researchers theorize that the Fairies of…Continue readingDogmen: Chicken or Egg?

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 3

I came home in the mid-morning, a boy again, naked and sodden with blood and filth. I could not make myself speak, other than to shriek Mother’s name. Father, out looking for me with my two older brothers, was not there to hear me. I think God showed him a kindness, that he did not…Continue readingTHE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 3

Meet Moloch

If you read the Old Testament, and not just the familiar parts of it, the familiar stories like Noah’s Ark and Daniel in the lion’s den, you might find a few surprises. For example, the fact that the ancient Israelites were wont to practice human sacrifice. It’s true. The deity to whom the ancient Hebrews…Continue readingMeet Moloch

Meet Moloch, the Movie Star!

That statue of the god Moloch (who craved the blood of sacrificed children) put up at the Coliseum by people at the Vatican may be causing all kinds of controversy—I can’t believe the folks at Vatican City didn’t see *that* coming!—but having the horned horror on display there is hardly his first brush with modern…Continue readingMeet Moloch, the Movie Star!

Secondhand Werewolf

I belong to this Facebook group, “Weird Secondhand Finds” I think it’s called. Someone had shared this photograph; I don’t recall the person’s name or I would credit him or her. If you are by chance the person who took this photograph, if you just happen to come across it here on this site, just…Continue readingSecondhand Werewolf

Thank Me for the JEEPERS CREEPERS Funko

I’m pleased to announce that my Funko Pop! figure of the Creeper from the JEEPERS CREEPERS franchise recently arrived in the mail—I’d preordered it months ago—and it now sits adorably on my bookshelf. I feel like I deserve the credit for the figure existing n the first place. You see, some time back I sent…Continue readingThank Me for the JEEPERS CREEPERS Funko

Apologies to Super7

A few years back I had purchased a set of new tires. Within a month’s time those tires were as bald as I am. (No, my alignment wasn’t off. Those tires were uniformly bald.) I went back to the dealership. “What the hell!” I demanded. They were totally cool, though. They replaced the tires at…Continue readingApologies to Super7

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Chapter 2

There is beauty to be found in the corrupt, precious even in the midst of the unholy. My homeland is beautiful. Arcadia, with its black peaks, its towering cedars too great in number to count, its meandering streams like silver ribbons draped between its hills, its thickets of wild ferns that grow taller than any…Continue readingTHE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Chapter 2

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Chapter 1

“His disciples asked Him, saying, ‘Master, who did sin, this man or his parents, that this has been visited upon him?’ The Lord answered them, saying, ‘neither this man hath sinned, nor his parents, but that through him the works of God should be made manifest.’” This passage is from the ninth chapter of the…Continue readingTHE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Chapter 1

Zombie Puppets Serenade Krampus

Here you are, my friends. This is my Christmas gift to you. A video of zombie puppets, from the Night of the Living Dead Puppet Show, singing Christmas carols at the recent Krampusnacht celebration in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If those words right there don’t make you want to click on that link, and if they don’t…Continue readingZombie Puppets Serenade Krampus
