Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Trick ‘r treat, smell our feet, and give us somethin’ good to review! The Halloween season is upon us, and what better way to break it in than with an in depth look at Michael Myers’ stint in the funny books as everyone’s favorite killer shape. 

Yessir, we’ve been mired in Michael’s continuin’ murder spree as a sequential slasher, and what a turbulent history it is. From indie publications to mainstream comic racks, these graphic exploitations are just as controversial to the splintered Halloween continuity as they are gore-tastic reads. We cover the sweet return of some of Halloween’s most popular characters, wince at the sours of some ridiculous retcons, and lap up the amazin’ artwork it’s all told through. 

And if that weren’t ‘nough, we go deep into the talents behind these various publications and the events they were tied to, gloss over each comics’ impact on Halloween’s competin’ timelines, and give our two scents on the newer 2018 requels while throwin’ in stuff ’bout the young adult novels for a bonus. What more could you possibly ask for?!

Phew! After all that work, you’d think we’d be sick and tired of Billy Shatner’s disfigured mug in our faces, but Michael ain’t done with us yet. Thanks to our amigos over at our favorite toy chest of yesteryear and today’s playful plastics, Toy Federation, we’ll be spendin’ this Friday, October 1st, with none other than Tony Moran (aka Michael without his mask at the top of the staircase in the 1978 Halloween), and hostin’ his QnA with fans ‘fore enjoyin’ a late night screenin’ of John Carpenter’s original masterpiece that started it all. Who could ask for a better way to kick off our favorite holiday, right?

It’s gonna be a killer time, so if ya happen to be in the neighborhood, stop on by and catch us all at Camelot Cinemas in Greenville, SC. Find all the details HERE

Howdy there Scream Freaks! We like keeping our ear to the ground and informing you of anything we think is worth knowing about regarding horror news, and one particular subject has been popping up a lot! We’re only a little more than half way through the year, but the horror community has already lost several memorable actors from notable works in the genre. Here’s an overview of those who passed away in 2015 thus far in no particular order:

Betsy Palmer (Friday the 13th)

Robert Z’Dar (Maniac Cop 1-3)

Roddy Piper (They Live, Hell Comes to Frogtown)

Tom Towles (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Night of the Living Dead (1990), Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Halloween (2007), The Pit and the Pendulum (1991) and The Prophecy II)

Alex Rocco (The Entity, Lady in White, Return to Horror High and Blood Mania)

Aubrey Morris (A Clockwork Orange, The Wicker Man, Lifeforce, Bordello of Blood, Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb)

Daniel von Bargen (The Silence of the Lambs, The Faculty, Lord of Illusions, Thinner and RoboCop 3)

Ben Woolf (American Horror Story)

Louis Jourdan (Swamp Thing, Return of Swamp Thing)

See what I mean? Luckily, most of these were deaths due to natural causes like old age, but it’s still hard to say good-bye and be reminded of their impressions on us through their works that continue to speak to future generations beyond the veil of death.
