19 Facts About The Exorcist


I hated to do that to you (the image above), but I knew it would get your attention. Today someone forwarded me a site that listed 19 facts about The Exorcist. When I read the list, I was literally blown away! First let me start by saying The Exorcist is the holy grail of all horror movies, and I believe it is still the scariest movie ever made. It is the one movie that haunted my subconscious well into adulthood and although I have seen it hundreds of times, I still find things in the movie I don’t remember seeing before.

One Pumpkin Patch To Rule Them All


Halloween is not complete without a yearly visit to the pumpkin patch. Usually I try visiting a new pumpkin patch each year just to see how they all stack up against each other. But this year, time was short so I decided to head back to a patch I visited a few years ago… the Pierce College Halloween Festival in Woodland Hills.

However if you plan on buying tickets to any of their attractions, the entrance fee is included. We paid the entrance fee, and explored the festival grounds. Check out what I found and the animatronic creature in the corn maze that blew me away! Continue reading

That’s right, I visited the park’s annual Halloween event last weekend and was quite surprised by all the attention to The Walking Dead TV show. These walkers were scary, had great makeup, and snarled just like the ones on TV. But then again, if anyone can do monsters right, it’s Universal. After all they have the most classic horror monsters of all time remember?…Dracula, Frankenstein, & The Wolfman. Here’s my review of the mazes, monsters, and decor this year with some pretty awesome pics too. Continue reading
