Trick-Or-Treat Should Only Be On One Night – Halloween

Keep Calm And Trick Or Treat

Back today archiving a Facebook post I made last week on the morning of Halloween.  I saw quite a few people complaining about the fact that trick-or-treat hadn’t been moved due to impending bad weather or due to the fact that a high school football game was scheduled on the same night. I posted this mini rant and I was happy that just about everyone that responded agreed with my stance.   Below is the un-edited … Continue reading

A Nightmare On Pip Street

Pip As Freddy

I just simply HAD to share this.  Check out Pip’s bad ass Halloween costume this year!  As you may or may not know, Pip and I are pretty hard core horror movie buffs.  In fact, we’ve taken this love for horror and actually turned it into something… We’re in the process of launching a website where we’ll talk nothing but horror movies and reviews.  When you get a moment check out www.scaretissue.com for all the … Continue reading

Freddy’s Back… Sort Of… “A Nightmare On Elm Street”

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

The wife isn’t a huge horror movie fan, but she’ll indulge me once a year on Halloween.  Last year we watched Psycho and the previous year we checked out the original Halloween.  I’d had the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street sitting on my shelf for quite a few months now and I figured Halloween night was a good opportunity to check it out. In a word… meh. First off, the flick starts in … Continue reading

Jabba The… Penis?

Jabba The Penis

I’m sure the title of this post alone will get me all kinds of SPAM comments, but I’m willing to take the risk to get something off my chest. Who in the hell thought this costume was a good idea? This was an officially licensed product available from Star Wars Shop.  That tells me that there was not only a product designer but also someone from Lucas Film that looked at this costume and said, “Yep … Continue reading

Try Some Cinnamon In Your Eye

Toy Story 3D

The last couple of weekends have been absolutely crazy so I was really looking forward to some quality family time this weekend and ability to knock some stuff off my honey do list.  I had planned on taking Friday off but due to some unforeseen circumstances that didn’t work.  Luckily it was a terrible day weather-wise so the scolding I received wasn’t TOO harsh.  (sorry again hon) Saturday started out very nicely.  We decided not … Continue reading

Hockey Masks, Razor Blades & Impalements… Oh My

Scream

The fall seems to be synonymous with horror movies.  It might be due to a little flick called Halloween.  In any case I’m a HUGE fan of the genre (as evidenced by the fact that Pip and I started a horror movie review website called ScareTissue).  For my money I’d pick a horror/slasher flick any day of the week.  Sure they’re campy, gory and go for the surprise factor but I absolutely LOVE them.  For … Continue reading

Jason Is Back On ‘Friday The 13th’

Friday The 13th (2009)

In 1980 the face of horror movies changed.  We were introduced to Camp Crystal Lake and a killer named Jason Voorhees (yes, I know that Jason’s mother was the killer in the original… stick with me).  From 1980 to 2003, we were given 11 sequels that took Jason from Crystal Lake to deep space,  New York City and even to Hell.  After nearly 30 years it was time for this franchise to get rebooted… apparently. … Continue reading

Is My Childhood Being Raped?

Child Of The 80's

I was born in the mid 70’s. It was before we had hundreds of channels on TV and it was before there was a blockbuster a week in the theaters.  There are comic, cartoon and movie properties that are so ingrained into my being that they are a part of me… and they’re all being redone for the sake of the almighty dollar. Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Halloween, Friday The 13th, Tron… I could … Continue reading
