I know it’s been awhile since I posted but this is important! Looks like monsters are on the prowl again. But instead of lurking in the shadows or hiding under your bed, they’re driving around in broad daylight! It’s true! Monsters are driving around in cars. Don’t believe me? Each monster license plate was photographed this year. No I don’t have photos of Bigfoot yet, but let this be a warning to all. Monsters can drive and they have good taste in cars!Continue reading
Well now that it’s all over, (Halloween that is) I hope you all stayed safe and sound. Ordinarily I’d have wished you a Happy Halloween but I knew this year was going to be different. Very different. For many it meant no trick or treating. For others it was as extreme as no decorating this year. Some of you might have just stayed in your room, sucked your thumb and cried.

If you’re in the mood for a creepy story then keep reading. This is the Tale of the Ghouls! I transcribed the following story from the third tale in the horror anthology movie “The Monster Club” (1981) staring Vincent Price. The third tale by far was my favorite. I’ll set it up for you. The main character arrives in a mysterious village and after almost being attacked by the weird villagers runs to find refuge in an old abandoned church. Inside he finds an old journal that tells this frightening Tale of the Ghouls. Continue reading
