32 Days of Halloween X, Day 33: Voodoo Man!

No, not a hallucination. Not an alternate reality. It’s the 33rd day of 32 Days of Halloween, because it’s Thanksgiving, which I celebrate as 2nd Halloween. Trust me, it’s therapeutic. For our opening salvo of goodness, we...

Well, sorry to be so predictable. But there’s no better film to watch on Halloween and our traditional way of ending 32 Days: Night of the Living Dead. The original. You know, the good one. I finally saw it on the big screen just a...

(As this tenth year of 32 Days of Halloween runs its course like a zombie plague, I wanted to throw the mic one last time to that Halloween researcher extraordinaire, Rox of Spazhouse, and let her handle the first bit of our final night...

32 Days of Halloween X, Day 26: Grizzly!

Some more classic radio for you tonight. We start with Jack Benny’s Halloween program from 1940, then we go straight to Inner Sanctum and their episode from 1945: “Wailing Wall.” It stars Boris Karloff. The scariest part of...
