3 Strange, Curious, and Morbidly Scary Museums

Greetings super creeps!

Want to take a ride on the crazy train? "Where to?" you ask? Well, I have just the places in the guise of three unique, macabre, and weird museums. One's for the curious, one's not for the faint of heart, and one is full of the strange and unusual. So come on - pack your coffins and let's take a trip!

Moving from East to West, our first stop is for the curious. It's located in Philadelphia, PA: The Mutter Museum is a "disturbingly informative" collection of medical history exhibition specimens, medical instruments, and models in a self-described "19th century cabinet museum setting." Their current featured exhibition is entitled "Spit Spreads Death." Curious? Give the Mutter Museum a visit.


Next on our three bizarre must-sees is the strange and unusual Curiosity Museum (formally The Historic Museum Of Torture Devices) located in Alton, Il - which is rumoured to be America's most haunted small town. Don…

In Case You Missed It: Horror Movies August - September 2019

Greetings, minions, and happy month of Halloween! We're going to have lots of treats here at the Lair this month and maybe even a few tricks, as well!

Today's post is for those of you who might have missed these malicious movies in August and September. Make sure to check your local on-demand and other streaming services in case they are there. I noticed Candy Corn and Corporate Animals on my on-demand service, so it might be on yours, as well.

With that said, miscreants, I'm off to finish up more fiendish content. Au revoir!

Interview: Dee Wallace

I really enjoyed my interview with Dee Wallace, minions. She was sweet, funny, and full of stories that I could have listened to her tell all day.  I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did doing it.

Blood, Babes, and Beasties : Zombeavers

Zombeavers
1hr  17 min. Released 20 March 2015

Zombeavers is a fun and cheesy watch that's full of blood, mostly naked, over-sexed babes, and plenty of beasties in the form of zombie beavers. (That's actual, water-dwelling critters - not the metaphorical kind.) If you're into old school '80s horror camp with surprisingly good production values, as well as some cleverly written cheese, this one's for you.

Zombeavers was directed by Jordan Rubin; written by Al Kaplan, Jon Kaplan, and Jordan Rubin; and stars Rachel Melvin, Cortney Palm, Lexi Atkins, Hutch Dano, Jake Weary, Peter Gilroy, Rex Linn, Brent Briscoe, Phyllis Katz, Bill Burr, and John Mayer.

Once you've seen it, you'll want a sequel with even more beavers -  zombie beavers that is.

The A to Zed Of Things: A is for A Nightmare On Elm Street

Created by Wes Craven in 1984, A Nightmare On Elm Street is not only considered a quintessential watch by horror fans worldwide, it also stars one of the most recognizable bad guys in the genre: Freddy Kruger. If his visage didn't instantly pop into your head, my acrid acolytes, you must've been living in a cave since the seventies!

There are nine movies in the franchise, including a crossover with Friday the 13th and a re-boot of the original in 2010. There are rumours that New Line Cinema will be doing another re-boot for 2019, but no official statement has been released.

A Nightmare On Elm Street franchise doesn't just end with movies, however. There are comics, its own series of novels, appearances in compilations, and short stories. The character of Freddy Kruger has become so popular, in fact, that it spawned a short-lived television series staring Robert Englund as Freddy himself, aptly named Freddy's Nightmares. It had 44 episodes and ran from 1988 to 1990.
