More Links I Like

As a guy with a wide range of interests, simply one listing of links to websites I enjoy just isn’t enough!

Xenorama – Xenorama is “the page of heroes and monsters,” along with an amazing article about an alternate version of The War of the Gargantuas.

Side Order of Ninjas – Funny and entertaining reviews of strange and amazing films.

Hauntcast – The internet’s premier online radio station for home haunters and Halloween enthusiasts.

Grindhouse Database – The cult movie community’s answer to the Internet Movie Database.

Weird NJ – Strange destinations and urban legends from New Jersey.

Home Haunt News – News and reviews no haunter should be without!

alt.horror.cthulhu – One of the few newsgroups out there that has regular, non-spam activity.

Skook – Tons of great artwork, including modernized (but faithful) renditions of Paul Blaisdell creations.

Tomb It May Concern – If Yor Week isn’t enough to convince you to read this, I don’t know what will.

Tough To Kill – An amazing look at European action flicks by Paul Cooke and the owner of the above site.

Home Haunter’s Haven – The name says it all.

The Laughing Reindeer – Back in the day, there used to be a website called “Monster Shindig” that reviewed horror movies, roadside attractions and the like. Although it died, one of its creators set up this blog. Did I mention that he was one of the people responsible for Carnivore?

Monster Shindig – I found this while looking for information about the now-defunct monstershindig.com. It’s not related, but still seems cool.

3B Theater – Any bad movie review site inspired by Strange Brew is okay with me!

AV Maniacs – Formerly “DVD Maniacs.” Great reviews and an even greater forum!

Gravedigger’s Local 16 Christmas Flashback

Although most of our Christmas content is posted in December, there have been occasions where such articles had to be posted before December rolled around. As a result, they have sadly become under-appreciated.

So to remedy the situation, please let this entry act as the Ghost of Christmas Past (of the non-cybernetic variety of course) and take you to some selected
winter and Christmas-related articles from years past:

Winterbeast
Krampusmas
Happy Horrordays!
Christmassacre in July
Nixon and Hogan Smoke Christmas
’tis the season…FOR HALLOWEEN SHOPPING?

Links *I* Like

As a sequel of sorts to an earlier post by Weird Jon, I thought I would compile a list of websites I enjoy. Well, with the exception of the ones already listed on the sidebar…

Cold Fusion Reviews – One of my favorite bad movie review websites. I love the comments given by the Hieratic Head of Ezra Pound at the end of each review.

Digital Monster Island – The best place to go for reviews of giant monster movies on DVD.

Squonkamatic’s IMDB and Amazon reviews – Interesting reviews from one of my Latarnia forum pals.

British Horror Movies – “Dey’re Briddish movies – I can tell by de way dey tawk!”

Sci-Fi Japan – Incredibly in-depth reviews and news on all things Japanese science fiction and horror. The articles on the Ultraman and Space Giants legal controversies are must-reads!

The HMA – The HMA, or Halloween Mask Association, has an amazing gallery of monster masks.

Haunted Attraction Magazine – The online version of the famous haunted house/hayride/etc. magazine. Includes free article uploads!

Hauntworld – Another great magazine devoted to haunted attractions. This site holds a special place in my heart due to it having the the article that inspired my user name.

Grindshow.com – Sideshow gaff (prop) manufacturer Doug Higley’s website, complete with pictures and user testimonials. The “atomic fish” is very similar to the “atomic mystery monster” attraction noted above.

Cinematic Treasures – A website devoted to the noble goal of preserving classic movie theaters.

MonsterTalk – At long last, a skeptical cryptozoology podcast!

Orgone Research – Don’t let the name fool you, this website has nothing to do with serious research of that junk science. Instead, it offers a variety of articles and musings by my JREF forum buddy Matt Crowley. The debunking of so-called “Bigfoot dermal ridges” is not to be missed.

Dr.Hermes Reviews and Retro-Scans Daily – The good doctor offers a wide variety of movie and literary reviews, including plenty of horror stuff (of course) on his website, while his Livejournal offers scans of posters, covers, ads, and more!

Atomic Monsters – No, this didn’t make the list due to the name. The clever, well-written reviews are what won me over. Fast connection speeds and Flash are a must for viewing the site.
