Camp Crystal Lake It’s Friday the 13th. What other film series did you think that I would pick to view this evening? Jason Voorhees has been terrorizing teens since the early 1980’s. The films follow the same basic plot (with some exceptions such as the first film which focuses on Jason’s mom and Friday theContinue reading “Day O’Horror #13! Friday the 13th!”

An Avenging Car on Day O’Horror #12!
1986 Arizona Some movies come along and for no real reason seem to click with the audience. Critics may hate it, but it still draws a crowd. Take The Wraith for instance. It was one of the earliest films in the careers of both Charlie Sheen and Sherilyn Fenn. It was the first major roleContinue reading “An Avenging Car on Day O’Horror #12!”
A Haunted Day O’Horror #11!
A Haunted Mouse! If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting either Disneyland or Disney World (or a few other Disney parks worldwide), you are probably aware that the Haunted Mansion is one of their most popular attractions. I’ve personally visited the Disney World Haunted Mansion on three separate occasions and loved it every time. It’sContinue reading “A Haunted Day O’Horror #11!”
Heads Rolled On Day O’Horror #10!
Inspired by Washington Irving With direction by Tim Burton, music by Danny Elfman, gorgeous sets, and an amazing cast, it’s easy to see why 1999’s Sleepy Hollow is one of my favorite films. I watch it multiple times each year (especially around Halloween and, for some odd reason, Christmas) and I never get tired ofContinue reading “Heads Rolled On Day O’Horror #10!”
Taking A Bite Out Of Day O’Horror #9!
New Orleans If you’re not already familiar with Interview With The Vampire, I highly recommend that you A) watch the movie and B) check out the book series that it is culled from, Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles. I’ve read three of the books in the series, Interview With The Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, andContinue reading “Taking A Bite Out Of Day O’Horror #9!”
Arts And “The Craft”: Days O’Horror #8!
California, 1996 The 1990’s were an excellent time for me. I graduated from high school and college during the decade, listened to multiple one-hit wonder bands, and got to see films like The Quick and the Dead, Empire Records, Interview With The Vampire, Mortal Kombat, what seemed like a ton of Jennifer Aniston films inContinue reading “Arts And “The Craft”: Days O’Horror #8!”
Stay Awake! Day O’Horror #7!
Under The Sheets I’ve seen all of the films in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise (including the television series). Growing up, it was one of the few horror franchises that I really enjoyed watching. Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) became funnier with each film and, sadly, he became less of a killer and more ofContinue reading “Stay Awake! Day O’Horror #7!”
It’s the Five-OOOoooooOOO! Day O’Horror #6
The Fuzz Lon Chaney, Jr. is the sole reason that I became a werewolf maniac. As a child, his portrayal of Larry Talbot in 1941’s The Wolf Man captivated me. Lon Chaney, Jr. is still my favorite werewolf and while there have been plenty of other werewolves on the screen, none of them have comeContinue reading “It’s the Five-OOOoooooOOO! Day O’Horror #6”
Gettin’ Squatchy! Day O’Horror #5!
In The Woods The Legend of Boggy Creek was the first film I watched that featured a cryptid as the antagonist. Since that time I have watched many, many more films about Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, and any other big hairy creature with massive feet. Most of those films were terrible, but every once inContinue reading “Gettin’ Squatchy! Day O’Horror #5!”
Double The Terror! Day O’Horror #4
Eat Or Die Welcome to day four of my Day O’Horror series! Today is twice as nice because I watched not one, but TWO horror flicks. Last night I watched Curse of Chucky and followed it up with the brand spanking new Cult of Chucky. I’ll get to that chewy morsel of terror in aContinue reading “Double The Terror! Day O’Horror #4”
