I couldn’t choose which link to post…so have a bunch!

What those dead bird holiday cards I posted the other day actually mean.

Most of the pics in this post require no comment…but don’t skip this androgynous, anthropomorphic pothead (see what I did there?). I find its lean, wiry body very disconcerting.

80’s Christmas Horror Movies

Posted in 80's, film, horror, monsters, TV, undead with tags , , , , , , on December 8, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Fellow horror fans…I confess I felt remiss in my duties when I discovered there were a number of 80’s Christmas Horror Movies I haven’t seen. A kind reader sent me this list.

static1.squarespace.com

Luckily, 80’s Horror has compiled a nice list of every Christmas horror movie made in the decade. How many have you seen?

They also note two awesome TV episodes (which were staples of my childhood): Tales from the Darkside- Seasons of Belief

And Tales from the Crypt- And All Through the House

Halloween Countdown: Vincent the Vegetable Vampire

Posted in absurd, halloween, music, music video, retro, undead with tags , , , , , , , on October 26, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I urge you to drop everything and watch the inimitable Morgan Freeman in the role of a vegetarian vampire (he starred in The Electric Company 45 years ago). Within 10 seconds, you’ll realize the combination deadpan delivery and exaggerated vaudevillian charm is nearly impossible to describe…but utterly fantastic.

I’ve actually never seen this show. Has anyone watched it?

Halloween Countdown: When Gothic Was Born

Posted in halloween, horror, TV with tags , , on October 22, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I meant to watch this as part of my Halloween season last year, but never got to it. There were a bunch of free full episodes on the BBC website, but when I attempted to play them I got an error message stating that the content is unavailable in my country.

Has anyone seen this series?

Twilight Zone Doorway Decal

Posted in decoration, home, sci-fi, TV with tags , , , on July 8, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Would you like your home to contain a 5th dimension beyond that which is known to man? A dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity? A middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, that lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge?

Well, you’re in luck. This “life size” Twilight Zone wall decal contains the iconic (eyeconic?) eye and clock from the opening credit sequence, floating in the endless vastness of space.

I’m tempted. Oh yes.

The Alfred Hitchcock Hour: An Unlocked Window

Posted in horror, TV, vintage with tags , , on June 7, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve been back on an Alfred Hitchcock kick lately, and last night I re-watched one of my all time favorite episodes (perhaps of ANY TV show). If you haven’t seen The Alfred Hitchcock Hour: An Unlocked Window, the full episode is on YouTube for free and I highly recommend it.

5557

A group of nurses, caring for an ailing patient, are trapped in an old manor on a stormy night with a notorious nurse killer on the loose outside of the house.

And someone left the basement window unlocked…

aha

Leave it to Hitchcock to take a subject as potentially cliche as “killer on the loose during a storm” and, through masterful direction, lighting and dialogue, turn it into a story no viewer will soon forget. It’s perfectly crafted…and even more amazing the second time with the insight of retrospect illuminating how carefully these scenes were constructed.

This episode should be shown in every film writing class. Watch for yourself!
