Sounds of Terror (1974) from LP

Once you listen past the unfortunate remake of "Monster Mash", this is a special album full of vintage horror  thrills--stories told through sound effects.

As If I Need Another Copy of Frankenstein...

An edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein laid out using characters and glyphs from PDF documents obtained through internet searches. The incomplete fonts found in the PDFs were reassembled into the text of Frankenstein based on their frequency of use. The most common characters are employed at the beginning of the book, and the text devolves into less common, more grotesque shapes and forms toward the end.

Monster Friday: The Tunnel

Scary? Yes.

Dark? Yes.

Personally, I didn't need to see the monster down in the tunnel (and I love monsters). Everything is scarier in the dark. Brilliant pacing, though.

Monster Brawl

Silly--yes, a little. But with homages to my favorite creatures, I'll be there.

Synopsis“Set in the tradition of a Pay-Per-View main event, comes a grotesque and hilarious fight to the death featuring a cast of eight classic combatants in all. Along with their colorful managers, these Monsters compete in visceral bloody combat in the ring to determine the most powerful monster of all time.

Monster Brawl stars comedian Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall, Bugs Life, Despicable Me), wrestling icons Jimmy Hart — The Mouth of the South, Kevin Nash, revered MMA referee Herb Dean, Robert Maillet (300, Sherlock Holmes, The Immortals), Art Hindle (Porky’s, Black Christmas) and the voice of horror legend and Call of Duty narrator Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Terminator). Monster Brawl is sure to be a cult classic in the making!”
