Tonight, first of all…Hollywood Canteen was based on an actual place setup for military servicefolks where they could get in for free by wearing their uniform. The film came out in 1944 and the two cameos you have here are the tip of...

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 11: Beyond the...

It occurred to me we hadn’t had any full-on sci-fi mayhem this year, so we’re going to go Beyond the Time Barrier in just a bit. But first, back to two different versions of the classic panel show (yes, we did have them over...

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 2: The Boogie...

No, I’m not kidding. That is an actual movie and not only is Boris Karloff in it but Peter Lorre is as well. But more on that in a moment. It’s the time of year for turning pumpkins into decoration and pies. So don’t start...

(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 VII, Day 15: Caltiki...

In a short while, we’ll be going to schlocksville to do battle with a blob. To sort of offset this, let’s aim for some culture. Previously, I did a recording of Macbeth for 32 Days, and looking back over the archives I was...

Lodger (1927)

32 Days of Halloween VI, Movie Night No. 16:...
