Join us this month for a special metal music-minded Halloween episode! We revisit ROCKTOBER BLOOD (1984) and TRICK OR TREAT (1986), before giving HACK-O-LANTERN (1988) a first-time viewing!

The Mystrys

Talking with Ziggy Zapata of The Mystrys

Let’s Talk About Witch Girls! I touched on this excellent slab of Aussie garage punk on my Halloween Nuggets playlist a few years ago (that comp does not appear to be on Spotify anymore, which renders the playlist useless—but you should totally buy the 3-disc set. It’s well worth it!), but it’s time I really… Read More ›

Can Halloween day save a lost season?

Approximately 31 days ago, I opened a blank Google doc and prepped work on some Halloween content ideas. The season felt fresh and I was jazzed on pumping out some spooky stuff. I had plans for writing about the new Halloween, perfectly topical TV, and even did research for a new video. Plus, we had… Read More ›

Fuzzed Out 70’s Halloween Stomp: A Playlist

In case you missed it, I posted a 60’s fuzzy garage punk playlist a couple years ago of which I’m quite proud. By 1968 most of the mid-60s garage punks were full-fledged flower power psychedelic weirdos, and the new songs and records reflected that. A lot of that stuff is good, but it lacks the… Read More ›

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 ›

Halloween 2017 Giveaway

UPDATE: This contest is now closed!  Since we’re now less than two weeks away from Halloween Day, I suppose it’s time to announce this year’s seasonal giveaway! WHAT First up, this year’s the pièce de résistance — a knit Pennywise doll (in the style of 2017’s It movie), made by Slaughter Crochet! Guys, this one is a… Read More ›

To honor the late, great Tobe Hooper, we decide to watch a selection of Hooper films, including the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Eaten Alive, Salem’s Lot, The Funhouse, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and Poltergeist! We also chat up a bunch of recent movie viewings (Logan, Killer Rack, The Monster Squad and more)! We also… Read More ›
