"What the Heck is Kinky Horror?"
I knew for sure was that I LOVED horror, and that I wanted to do something horror-iffic to share my love and excitement for the genre. I tried making this a straight up news site, but that proved no good because there are already 1,000,000 sites that cover that sort of thing better than I could ever begin to. I tried doing JUST You Tube-esque vids, but they all just seemed like really bad Elvira rip offs (all glory to the Mistress of the Dark!.
So, I figured, I don’t have to be no stinkin’ “beauty queen” to do any of that stuff. I have this lovely site sitting here waiting to be used, an intense passion to tell folks about all the horror-related stuff that makes me cream my panties, and a willingness to lose those panties at any time for the sake of entertaining the masses.
Without further ado (hopefully), I present you with a Kinky Horror site that is near and dear to my cold, black heart :) You may not agree with all of my opinions (not everyone thinks Prom Night 2 is the Citizen Kane of horror, I know), but my goal is to arouse you with my bewbs enthusiasm, so you’ll want to join me in my plight to keep Halloween alive 3-6-5, Alice Cooper Style!www.kinkyhorror.com

In a world of insincerity, religious wars, corrupt corporations and politicians, The Great Pumpkin stands as a shining beacon of truth, sincerity and The True Meaning of Halloween. For generations, The Great Pumpkin has delivered us from the mundane, allowing us to enjoy a world steeped in The Spooky. We are the children of Charles Shultz, Charles Addams, Edward Gorey and Tim Burton. We pray to Saint Price, Saint Munster and Saint Beistle. We pay reverence every year to the Disney Apostles Ichabod and Chernobog. We love Halloween more than Christmas.
We are The Pumpkinauts, members of The Cult of The Great Pumpkin. If you’re reading this, you’re one of us, else you’d’ve never clicked the link that led you to these words. Accept it. You love Halloween. Sincerely.www.pumpkincult.com
Tomfoolery abounds! Spectacular moments of wonder with Doctor Monocle.
I started this blog as a place to keep reference material and artwork that influenced me/inspired me while I wrote the first Dr. Monocle book. It’s mainly steampunk stuff, but also includes dieselpunk (like steampunk for WWI and WWII), Victorian era stuff, weird west genre stuff, and, every once in a while, a bit of sci-fi or fantasy work.www.doctormonocle.com

Reviews of Halloween specials and cartoons, both old and new hosted by Adam Selzer.
It just doesn't seem like Halloween without a viewing of Garfield's Halloween Adventure, Witch's Night Out, or Halloween is Grinch Night. There was a time when these were aired yearly, and it wasn't that long ago.
Alas, though we now have roughly 10 times as many tv channels as we did when I was a kid, most of the great old Halloween Specials have been swept under the rug of pop culture. Tossed into the dustbin of history. Hurled over the brink of relevance. Whatever. Many have never even been released on VHS, let alone DVD.
For the most part, Halloween specials stopped being made in the late 1980s. Many people had cable by then, so a TV special wasn't as big of a deal as it had been before. More importantly, the home video market had taken off. Suddenly, the annual airing wasn't your only chance to see any given special. At the same time, it started seeming like a better investment for companies to just make made-for-TV movies instead of half hour specials. Full length movies tended to sell better than 22 minute specials on the video market. But as the shows stopped being aired and VHS went out of date, most of the Halloween specials got lost along the way, surviving only in our memories, our VHS storage bins, and (eventually) on youtube. Relatively few of these have seen an official release on DVD.
With this site, I hope to compile some reviews and information about all of the great specials - as well as the great Halloween-themed episodes of various cartoon series (the line between "Halloween episode" and "Halloween special" can get a bit blurry, as you'll see), as well as some of the made-for-tv or straight-to-video Halloween movies that have come out over the years. And, while I'm on the general subject, I'll review the many versions of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow that have been released over the years (a special interest of mine).www.halloweenspecials.net
