Unique Tales of Horror Movie Moments, Scares and Halloween (by The Creature/Moviefan12/Jarvisrama99)

October 25, 2022 in Blogs, The Creature

All throughout our experiences in life, anyone can have their fair share of unique moments that makes things a little interesting. Whether it be an incident with family, at a movie, or just with friends, just about anything can happen in life that can make our time on Earth memorable. With that in mind, some of the experience that best come to mind for me generally revolves around anything Halloween related. Whether it be on the holiday or involving something horror-related, there always tends to be some unique experience that happens. Given that it’s close to Halloween, I took some inspiration for things like Vlogs or Spoony’s Counter Monkey and invited some people on and off this site to share some experiences that they’ve have in relation to this time of the year or having a similar experience with a horror movie.

31 Days of Halloween 2022: ICFTDI: Man-Thing

October 14, 2022 in Blogs, The Creature

It’s no surprise that the world of Marvel Comics is massive. Ever since their start in 1939, the company has grown into an entertainment juggernaut that has spawned many memorable characters and stories with seemingly no end in sight. With as much media as the company has and the genres they’ve gone into, there’s often one that a lot of people generally don’t think about: Horror. The company has taken its fair share into the darker genre with characters like The Midnight Sons, The Living Mummy, Blade, Ghost Rider, and Dracula but they generally get very little attention or end up being overlooked completely. Thankfully, a lot of the movie adaptations have gone and adapted a lot of the characters with movies over the years and the MCU is finally starting to dive into that territory with Werewolf By Night just premiering and Blade coming soon. With that in mind, the topic of the movie that’s being covered just so happens to cover one of my all-time favorite Marvel characters: Man-Thing.

It Came From The Drive In/FillerVision: Clue (with Jarvisrama99)

TC: Who doesn’t love playing a board game? They’ve been around in many variations since the BC era before the term was ever coined and been on a steady increase which soon became a staple of entertainment for everybody regardless of age. So much so that there’s an endless amount to choose from and range from many different variations. Of course with that in mind, picking a favorite has always been a big subject of talk amongst people. Many people usually go for some of the classics like Monopoly, The Game of Life, or Chess and sometimes more modern examples like Cards Against Humanity. One of the most popular choices though is the subject for the film in question today: Clue.

The board game was created by Anthony E. Pratt in 1949 and was heavily inspired by murder-mystery games and mystery stories that he had experience with while being stuck at home during World War II. The game’s concept is simple: You play as one of six suspects of a murder inside a mansion and you have to deduce who killed him, which weapon was used, and where it happened. The game became a big success and has easily become one of the most popular board games of all time as well as becoming a prominent example of the ‘Whodunit’ genre. Hell, it’s even my personal favorite board game to play.

 

J99: I’m afraid to say I’m not familiar with the board game. While I did grow up with Monopoly and Chess, the closest I ever came to the game was always seeing the box cover whenever I was in Target or Wal Mart in the toy section. But it makes sense a game like Clue would be as popular then as it is still today: murder mysteries are a fun subject. It’s engaging when you get wrapped up in a mystery and wanting to figure out what’s going on and who’s behind this crime. That’s one of the reasons escape rooms became popular in recent years: what’s a more fun experience than you and your friends trying to put clues together to move onto the next puzzle?

 

TC: Of course like most board games, Clue’s success has gained many different variations over the years as well as diving into different territories such as having computer games, children’s books, two game shows, a TV miniseries, multiple stage adaptations, a comic book series, and the most notable adaptation: a movie. The movie came out in 1985 which served as the directorial debut of Jonathan Lynn who wrote the screenplay from a concept by himself and John Landis. The movie ended up being a box office bomb, but soon after became very popular after its home video release and has received much appraisal over the years (just like everything else I take a look at).

The Creature’s Favorite Midnight Syndicate Albums

October 28, 2021 in Blogs, The Creature

Seeing as how last year I covered the music of Nox Arcana, it felt natural that I should cover their musical counterparts: Midnight Syndicate. Much like Nox Arcana, they specialize in making atmospheric, dark, neo-classical music that incorporates story elements and dialogue that capture the haunting and dark mindset that perfectly captures the Halloween spirit. Since I covered some of my favorite works of Nox Arcana last year, I decided to dive into this group’s work and decide to share some of my personal favorites from them.

It Came From The Drive In: The Phantom of the Opera (1998)

October 30, 2020 in Blogs, The Creature

Of course with the Halloween Season behind here once again, it’s always a compelling time to revisit “The Phantom of the Opera”. As previously mentioned by many others before me, there are countless adaptations of the Gaston Leroux story that range from Movies, Musicals, Radio Dramas, TV specials, Sequel Books and there’s even a Video Game based on the story. The list is endless to choose from in which you want to visit the tale of the Opera Ghost and his love for the young Christine Daae. While I’ve covered some of the more famous adaptations a couple years ago, there’s still plenty to choose from for this year that are prime for the taking.

With that in mind, I’m going to go with Argento.
