Clint and Vincent

In remembrance of Clint Walker, who sadly passed away Monday,
watch More Dead Than Alive (1969) co-starring Vincent Price here.

Also listen to Clint's and Vincent's covers of When Day Is Done below.

Clint's cover from his Inspiration album:

Vincent's cover from Madhouse (1974):

As you can see, Peter Cushing co-stars in it.
His birthday would be tomorrow, the 26th.
Vincent's and Christopher Lee's would be Sunday, the 27th.
Clint's would be Wednesday, the 30th.

Discover The Lost Planet with Ulysses 31

I recently watched all 26 episodes of Ulysses 31.
It's an awesome anime show from the early 80's.
I thought I'd share my favorite episode,
since it's fitting for Mother's Day.

It features that witch, who loves kids. (No, not eating them.)
Her unicorn reminded me of my 2014 Mother's Day post here.

The Lost Planet is episode 5, but you can start with it,
because the show's plot is described in the opening.

Warning: Theme song will get stuck in your head.

Werewolf Mother's Day

My Mom's a Werewolf (1989)

I watched that movie here and loved it!

It inspired me to make my mom a werewolf in my Holly's Horrorland story.
My grandma and little sister will be werewolves too. I lost all of them. :'(
In my story they'll be shot with silver bullets by a monster hunter.

My mom and grandma. I'm the bun in the oven.

I'll be moving to the house they're pictured in on June 15.
My grandpa who I lost in July left it to my brother and I.
He'll be a vampire staked by the same hunter in my story.

His birthday would be Tuesday and my brother's is tomorrow.

Note the Ghostbusters tee!

He's also a werewolf, as you can see:
I'm Little Red Riding Hood.
That was my favorite Halloween costume. My aunt made it.

Actually my mom, sister, brother and I will be werepires.
Since my mom is the daughter of a werewolf and a vampire.
Just like Lily Munster. I assume her mom was a werewolf.
Since her son and brother are werewolves.

Hope all you momsters have a fangtastic Mother's Day!

The Forgotten Prisoner

Thanks to Mike Arnett for sending me this on Facebook:

 When I was a kid my older brother always built plastic models of monsters.
I remember when he built one called "The Forgotten Prisoner".
This was in the 60's. In 2015 I bought a new version of the model and built it.
Check it out!

I love it! Reminds me of The Pirate's Cove in Ocean City, MD.

The Forgotten Prisoner isn't a pirate though.
Find out who he is in this comic story here.

There's also a model of his Ghost and a dungeon door,
which combines the two models into one big diorama!

I haven't made a model yet. Have you?
If so, send a picture to me and I'll post it for all to see!

Happy Halfoween!

We're halfway to Halloween!
And today would be my little sister's 28th birthday.
So I celebrated last night by watching these movies:

The Halloween That Almost Wasn't (1979)

The Midnight Hour (1985)

I also treated myself to pumpkin ice cream and these goodies:

They're 15% off!

Quirk eBooks from Humble Bundle.
I got all those and more for just $15!

Speaking of books, this Saturday is Free Comic Book Day!

Monkey Movies for Ape-ril 2018

Queen Kong (1976). Watch it here.

Mistress Of The Apes (1979). Watch it here.

I picked this pair to share cause they have all these things in common:

1. Girl power!

2. Interspecies romance.

3. Comedy. (Mistress Of The Apes unintentionally.)

My favorite funny thing in Queen Kong is Lady Jaws,
who pops up at the 19:16 mark.

4. Two theme songs.

Opening song of Queen Kong

Closing song of Queen Kong

The first song starts at the 54:55 mark of Mistress Of The Apes.
The second song is at the end.

Bat Appreciation Day Blog Hop

Since it's also Poetry Month, I thought I'd share this beautiful book:

The Bat-Poet is about a bat who decides to stay awake during the day.
He creates poems about his experiences and recites them to others.
His bat buddies don't understand. The mockingbird criticizes them.
The chipmunk loves them and encourages him to continue though.
So he creates the last and best poem in the book, which is below.

A bat is born
Naked and blind and pale.
His mother makes a pocket of her tail
And catches him.
He clings to her long fur
By his thumbs and toes and teeth.
And then the mother dances through the night
Doubling and looping, soaring, somersaulting -
Her baby hangs on underneath.
All night, in happiness, she hunts and flies
Her sharp cries
Like shining needlepoints of sound
Go out into the night and, echoing back,
Tell her what they have touched.
She hears how far it is, how big it is,
Which way it’s going:
She lives by hearing.
The mother eats the moths and gnats she catches
In full flight; in full flight
The mother drinks the water of the pond
She skims across.
Her baby hangs on tight.
Her baby drinks the milk she makes him
In moonlight or starlight, in mid-air.
Their single shadow, printed on the moon
Or fluttering across the stars,
Whirls on all night; at daybreak
The tired mother flaps home to her rafter.
The others are all there.
They hang themselves up by their toes,
They wrap themselves in their brown wings.
Bunched upside down, they sleep in air.
Their sharp ears, their sharp teeth, their quick sharp faces
Are dull and slow and mild.
All the bright day, as the mother sleeps,
She folds her wings about her sleeping child.

Add a link to your bat post to hang with the gang!

Friday the 13th of April Blog Hop

It's fitting for this Friday the 13th to be near Easter.
 Since fear of Friday the 13th stems from Jesus' Last Supper and Crucifixion.
There were 13 people at the Last Supper and Jesus was crucified on a Friday.
So many see it as a double whammy when 13 and Friday come together.
I see it as a lucky day though, cause Jesus saved us and rose from the dead.

See more Biblical sand sculptures here.

Jason Voorhees rose from the dead in the Friday The 13th films too.
This excerpt from Still I Rise by Maya Angelou reminds me of them:

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Jason may not have killed if someone was kind to him,
like Wednesday Addams is in the video and art below.

See more Jason and Wednesday art here.

Add a link to your Friday the 13th of April post to join the fun!

Have a Mad Saint Patrick's Day!

First watch The Mad Magician (1954) here or hosted by Svengoolie on MeTV at 8.

Print and wear this magically malicious mask from the pressbook.

Then watch mad women eat man meat with green guacamole in...
Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (1989)
Hosted by Elvira here.

You can make guacamole to eat while you watch.
Using this recipe by Boris Karloff, who played my favorite green guy:

Morticia and Leticia

I got these albums in celebration of Women's History Month:

The Addams Family Exclusive Vinyl LP from ThinkGeek

Here's Morticia's Theme:

Mae West Sings from Myra Breckinridge (1970)

I had to download the album after seeing Mae as Leticia in the film.

Listen to her cover of Hard To Handle here.
The link to download the album is there too.

I also watched her last film Sextette (1978), featuring Alice Cooper!

The rest of March will be all about wicked women here, except for the 24th.
That'll be Shatner Day in celebration of William's birthday, which is the 22nd.

Sirius Story

Simone Mareuil, the movie hottie, gave up her body
Burnt it like toast, but she couldn't give up her ghost
Self-immolation caused her damnation
Now the sad spirit of Simone wanders forever alone.
I wrote that sadly true story about the suicide of Simone Mareuil.
I titled it Sirius, cause she's the star of An Andalusian Dog (1929).
Sirius is The Dog Star.

The art is by Jessicka Addams. You can get it on t-shirts at her store here.
The words in pink are from her band Jack Off Jill's song Strawberry Gashes.
Their song Star No Star reminds me of Simone and the end of the film too.
Both songs are on their album Clear Hearts Grey Flowers. You can get it here.

I ordered this Sympath Tea pin from Jessicka's store here:

I'll post a photo wearing it on my Instagram here soon.
I finally got a new smart phone, so I'll post there more.

Monster Dog (1984)

Alice Cooper plays rock star Vince Raven in this fangtastic film.
He returns to his childhood home to shoot a music video, 
while wild dogs are on the loose killing off local residents.
The sheriff suggests that Raven knows something about it,
since Raven's father was accused of being a werewolf and murdered years ago.
Now everyone suspects Raven, including his girlfriend, Sandra (Victoria Vera).
Is he a werewolf? You'll have to watch it here to find out.

You can watch the music videos from the film below though.

Thought I'd share this Alice figure I got at Toys R Us years ago too:

I got the Lemax Spooky Town skeletons from Amazon recently,
because they remind me of the dancing skeletons in this video:

I'll be posting dogs in horror here all year, since it's Year of the Dog.

Then join Dracula's bride Vampira (Teresa Graves) on the dance floor:

As she flew out, two love bats flew in and requested this song:

Dracula's son Count Downe (Harry Nilsson) will play the last song:

That's my favorite Nosferatune.

Speaking of poor Count Orlok,
check out this artwork from the Curse of the Vampire comic book:
