Go Grayscale

Filexd under: Apparel,Crafts,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

After a long search I have finally decided what my husband and I will be for Halloween. Well, mostly anyway. The details are still a bit of a gray area (of course pun intended). I found this article on how to go grayscale for your Halloween costume. Basically it means that you dress up to look like you stepped out of an old black and white movie. I absolutely love this idea, but instead of any old movie characters we want to go with ones from a scary movie. My only problem now is deciding whether to be Bride of Frankenstein and the monster or Morticia and Gomez Addams. I even thought maybe Frederick and Annabelle Loren (Vincent Price & Carol Ohmart) from The House on Haunted Hill, but maybe some of our friends wouldn’t get that one. It is my favorite William Castle movie, though, so maybe. I’ll have to decide fast, so I have enough time to get everything. If you want to go grayscale too you can find the instructions here.

Blood Bath

Filexd under: Bed & Bath,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , — jane @

Oh boy! Now I can take a shower and pretend I am making a “good” remake of the film Psycho unlike the remake made in 1998 with Vince Vaughn. Nothing against Mr. Vaughn at all, I actually really like him, but that was just plain awful. Of course, if he wants to try and make Psycho again with me I’d be more than willing. On second thought, that might turn into a completely different type of movie… umm… never mind. Anyway, if you want to try it yourself you can start by getting your Blood Bath shower gel here.

How To Dance Goth

Filexd under: Misc.,Music,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Many years ago, before I was married, I went to all of the local goth clubs and danced the night away while looking very cool. At least I thought I was cool. A reader sent this to me the other day just when I needed a good laugh. If only I had this video back in the day. I might have actually been as cool as I thought I was with these moves. Besides being an informative video it’s also hilarious. It’s set up to look and sound like one of those old educational hygiene films from the 50s. Check out my favorite which is lesson three on how to step over your dead friend.

Hollywood Is Dead

Filexd under: Art,Collectibles,Decor,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , — jane @

You know I love movies, right? If you haven’t figured that out by now well… you’re just a dumbass. I came across a fantastic artist that combines my two loves of horror and movies. Read on if you want to find out more.

“A ghastly and infectious virus has spread through Los Angeles, home to the celebrated movie makers of the world. While seeming to send Hollywood greats to their grave, the dead have reanimated with a new hunger for flesh… and brains. Now the rotting corpses have performed a postmortem on tinsel town, and the cinematic icons will never be the same.” At least that’s what poster artist Matt Busch says when talking about his latest and greatest project. Matt takes famous movie posters and painstakingly recreates them with a scary edge called Hollywood is Dead. The project originally got started in 2009 when he was approached by Lucasfilm to create a poster that would combine Star Wars and zombies that would promote a new book on called Death Troopers. The fans went crazy for it and since then he has started doing classic movie posters.┬áHe has done twenty so far and plans to publish a coffee table book one day. You can have your own 19×13 copy of any of them for $19.95. That will just have to do until he comes out with that book. You can see them all here. My personal fav is Breakfast is Tiffany.
