Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Balls: The Kinda-Sorta Recipe Video

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! FINALLY. A follow-up to my Bloody Popcorn recipe video! And this time, I’m making Pumpkin Spice Bourbon balls — a twist on your typical (Christmas) holiday bourbon (or rum) balls! Disclaimer: I filmed this after a day’s work. My hair is bad. My mic stopped working (so, I’m using the camera’s internal mic)…. Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 30: “An Impromptu Halloween Show”

We couldn’t let October go by without getting in one Halloween inspired show! So, here we are with a random, rambling episode about the movies we’ve watched this season; our trip to Rochester to see Fright Rags and watch Halloween on the big screen; and then we each pick some fun festive movie/TV related characters… Read More ›

Pet Peeve: Halloween Movies that Skimp on the Halloween

Some of the movies in this little list I like. Some I loathe. But all of them would be even better if they followed through on their Halloween setting. It bugs me a weird amount when movies have a character say it’s Halloween, but there are no visuals to back it up and give it… Read More ›

Ranking the Tales in ‘Trick ‘r Treat’

Every year on Halloween night at the Bloody Popcorn house, after the kids are in bed—full of candy and probably dreaming about Christmas—we watch Trick ‘r Treat. No film captures the season better. Ranking the segments in Trick ‘r Treat is hard as hell. It would be hard even if they were completely separated out… Read More ›

Non-Halloween for a Fun Halloween

This is it, kiddies. Halloween is almost over — for some it already is. And according to my social media feelers, it looks like this year was hit or miss for Halloween spirit. It happens. Just blame the election. So before we close the season out with a super-duper spooky article tomorrow, let’s get generic for a… Read More ›

My Old Hardcore Band Played a Halloween Show Once

I spent a large chunk of my life going to hardcore and punk shows. I was in a couple hardcore bands too, the most notable of which lasted about a year at the turn of the millennium. The band was called Brass Knuckles…or Brass KnuXXXles—we were straight edge as fuck! Nah, just kidding, we were… Read More ›
