Uncle Ernie's Spookytown 2004

I never had a setup like this in all my years of being a Halloweenie. I just put everything "Halloween" I own all over the house, with, usually, one special shelf of my favorite things. Glass and delicate stuff. Knick knacks from the dollar store plaster the living room. Glow-in-the-dark bats, witches, pumpkins, skeletons and cats and so on and so on. Wait; I've drifted... Here is Uncle Ernie's Spookytown 2004.

The Secret Saturdays

Jay Stephens (of MONSTERAMA) needs our support. The Cartoon Network wants to change "The Secret Saturdays" to "The Secret Adventures Of Zak Saturday". Bloody crazy. The original title is simple and memorable... almost lyrical. Their title just drags on. Please, go tell CN what title we want. You can guess my vote. Name That Toon Good luck, Jay!!!

New news

So then. What's up, you ask? My friends are busy for me. Justin will make Exorcist III screencaps soon. Because I will nag him until he does. Another friend is going to take pictures from Mommy with Jason Miller. I'm dying for sausage, and I don't know why... I posted a question here. Help me out if you can, thanks. I found a few more cool sites with links to FFH. Thank you! I'll post them later. I always searched "Frankestein's fun house". But "Frankenstein's funhouse" got new results. Yay! Two friends are back from vacations, and one just left. And, Justin's Natalie Bassingthwaighte.com was mentioned in a magazine! He's also now an admin for the Jason Miller Tribute. That's all for now. Update: Run over to Justin's Natalie site and wish her a happy birthday!

FRANKENSTEINIA

I've found a great new Frankenstein blog! Now, I happened to be Googling FFH... Just to see what was up with my crowd. It seems to be a good way of finding blogs I like and share with you. Link to here on there, you see. I love the place already. It'll be a montser/Frankenstein blog icon; In time. I hope I can keep up! FRANKENSTEINIA

HORROR HALL OF FAME (1990)

I want it on dvd! Can anyone take pity on me and make screencaps of Jason Miller in it? I'll try to be more interesting tomorrow...

Today was not much fun

Nothing dreadful took place, I'm grateful to say; but it wasn't... unique. I'll give you an idea: I ate popcorn all day and watched Seinfeld. Not bad... just ordinary. Nobody was on my IM much... I confuse others with stunning grace and (faked) wit. I knit... I'm endlessly boring, sorry, but I'm just sticking the day together and getting over with it, you see. Umm... I stuck a little tv in my bedroom, leaving many books homeless and sitting on my floor. Cabala, V.C. Andrews, David Niven, Poe, Gravestone humor, Hitchcock, ect. etc. I won't floss again. It goes against my happy-go-lucky nature to fiddle with the kernels between my teeth. I'll let them be; 'cause I'm sleepy. Oh well... They can't all be gems.

Lend us a claw...

Hello again. I'm here now to ask for your participation in horror screencap making. I don't have all the horror movies I would like; and some are only on vhs, so, no pics. Justin has his rockin' site going now, and my Flickr is rather sparse.... Specifically, I'm after caps from Dracula and Frankenstein (originals). Two of my favorite films, and I can't fit the video into the dvd tray! Don't go to too much trouble, of course. But, if you can help, it would be greatly appreciated! I only want caps from movies I've seen... so I don't get spoilers. I'm not sure what Justy wants, but he'll tell you. I'd especially love to have caps from the "It's Alive!" scene in Frankenstein (heavy on the Colin Clive, please) and Renfield's bloody finger trouble in Dracula. Well, if you've read this far, I'm happy.

Yet another gem from Neatorama

You want horror covers? Science fiction? Mystery? Something else, perhaps... You want it, Coverbrowser has it. You could wander around the vaults until the end of time; Or, at least, until The Birds Remake comes out... Duck and cover, My Fellow Monsters. I'll be waiting for the dvd. So, what are you waiting for? Knock yourselves out! Here are a few of my faves: Ps. New template: Good, Bad or Ugly? Update: I got sick of the new template so we're back to this.

Justin's Horror Screencap Site

The first thing up is The Exorcist, without the funny blue tint. My face hurts from smiling! A TON of pics, and lots of great shots of Jason Miller. Justy's also going to make caps of The Exorcist III: Legion. (Or I'll threaten him with a rolling pin.) LET'S HEAR IT FOR JUSTIN!!! Horrorcaps.exmk.net

BRRRAAAIIINNNSSS!!!

The LOL Cats

The utter awesomeness of horror screenshots

I know I haven't gotten around to stuff I've promised you just yet... As what usually happens, life keeps getting in the way of me entertaining you. I'm still gonna post the stuff, just not as quick as I'd like. Anyone remember what I'm on about? Vintage book covers, scans from Ripley's collection of morbid oddities and, more recently, screencaps from Karloff's The Ape. I'm getting to it all. I've also landed myself some friends at Myspace and Flickr, and I've been goofing off with them. Not to mention my nifty new gadget, Instant Messenger. Been talking to my Australian mates all week. AND Justin is thinking of starting a horror screencap site! I've already thrown all my support and begging his way. Why don't you all go tell him that you NEED a horror screencap site too? Justy's also busy trying to get some ugly watermarks off a couple pics for me (and you). Meanwhile, I'll toss you a link for fun. Monster Movie Gallery. Dig ya later! Update! The Ape, (starring Boris Karloff as the warped humanitarian), screencaps are up... But, SPOILER ALERT! Also watch for more from The Fall Of The House Of Usher (starring Vincent Price as the eerie yet alluring Roderick Usher). And, the Gorefest; Black Sunday.

Vintage Halloween Cat

I ADORE this. It seems to be a popular one... It always comes up at Vintage Halloween sites, but never so huge, great and... Halloweenie.
