Interview: Ted Nicolaou

Greetings misanthropic minions, it's another day of living through the pandemic. So, I thought I'd be nice and entertain you all. There was a lot going on at the lair for the last couple of years that interfered greatly with my posts. Thing's have finally cleared up for the most part, well, except for the current global situation. I thought that as long as the earth hasn't split open, and swallowed me whole I should start things back up. Beginning with a couple of interviews I did, and didn't get posted. It's an audio interview so make sure you have your sound on. I'm NOT a video editor nor do I wish to be, so don't be too hard on me. The first of these is an interview with horror legend Ted Nicolaou. It was very cool to talk to him. I'm a big Subspecies fan so it was extra - special to me. Be safe minions and I hope you enjoy the interview!

The A - Zed of Things : Friday the 13th Movie Franchise

I know what you're thinking: "Lili, you've only done 'A' - this is an 'F'." I'm fully aware of this, minions. However, Friday the 13th (the day) doesn't come around all that often, so one must be flexible when these things arise. Besides, there was going to be an F eventually anyway! The movie franchise of Friday the 13th is remarkable. Not because the movies themselves are some of the best movies ever made, but because of the pop cultural inroads it helped to create for the horror genre - specifically for slasher films. The franchise alone has 12 total movies, a score of comics, novellas, video games, too much merchandise to even list and there were even a couple of documentaries made about it. Not bad for a franchise based on a movie that started its life as a bloodier, more violent "roller coaster ride" than the Halloween franchise it was trying to take on. The franchise also led to the creation of many copycat, cheesy, over-the-

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
