AMC Fearfest

I'm sure most of you, being the seasonal fanatics that you/we are, know that AMC Fearfest begins October 13th (appropriate number, don't you think?). If you didn't, well, now you do. Not only does AMC participate in the Halloween programming festivities, but they happen to produce the greatest show on TV right now, The Walking Dead. It's definitely a channel I respect.

Stream Cancellation and The Future

Due to various technical issues that would arise from doing the radio stream on my own, I quickly realized it could not be and, really, should not be done on my own. One reason is that it would be streaming from my own computer and using it as a server which would allow open access to my IP address. Another reason is that if, for some strange reason, a ton of visitors decided to listen to the stream at once, then my bandwidth would slow to a crawl. These and many other more technical problems led to the conclusion that streaming from my own "server" was simply not an option.

Because of this I have decided to cancel the radio stream scheduled for this Friday. No big deal, really. The good news, though, is that I have discovered a new, more effective way of streaming and plan on testing it out throughout the week and preparing a stream for the very near future. More information will be available when it's ready to go.

I have another cool bit of content for the site for next month. Staying on par, info about it will be available in the coming weeks.

Update: Naturally, nothing works out as planned. Details will be available soon about the cancellation of the stream.

Translation: "radio?"

Yes, I plan on launching the radio stream next Friday, September 28. It will feature some Halloween-themed music you have likely heard and some stuff you likely won't hear anywhere else (as far as the dedicated Halloween radio stations on the internet).

The broadcast will begin at 9p.m. eastern. It will run for approximately one hour and will then go off air. I plan on providing a flash player so you can stream it in the browser, but a stream link that can be played in the media player of your choice (iTunes, VLC, etc.) will be available without a doubt.

It will more or less be a test for further streams so I hope everything goes smoothly.

Happy Hallo.... err Meal

Here is the next set of toys to appear at McDonald's in the Happy Meals:

It is based off a new animated movie for kids coming out. I'm just happy to see Halloween-style toys available for the kids because I remember loving those McDonald's toys the most from my childhood.

Imagine turning a corner and being confronted by this:

Yes, I said Buu, not boo. This was a villain from the Dragon Ball Z series which I was a huge fan of as a kid. Here is somebody's interpretation of a "realistic" Majin Buu. Pretty damn creepy.

Halloween In Theaters

The original HALLOWEEN film is apparently going to be shown in theaters sometime this fall. Here are the minimal details available right now:

This October, John Carpenter's immortal classic, HALLOWEEN, will be making a return to theaters nationwide. This will be the biggest run the film has had since shocking audiences in 1978, and makes for the perfect early kick off to next year's 35th Anniversary celebration.  
Screening before the film will be YOU CAN'T KILL THE BOGEYMAN: 35 YEARS OF HALLOWEEN, a new mini documentary written and directed by our ownJustin Beahm, focusing on the undeniable impact the film (and series) has had on culture and the genre. The documentary will run at all screenings coast-to-coast.
More details will be posted soon over at, but before the press or anyone else found out, we wanted to share the news with you, the most amazing fans in cinema. Stay tuned!

Not sure if I'd go to see a movie I've already seen a hundred times in theaters, but I support the idea.

13 Nights of Halloween

ABC Family has released a preview video for the 13 Nights of Halloween for this year. Personally, I expect god-awful programming and a severe lack of enthusiasm for the holiday from ABC Family again this year, as usual.

The Mist

It was super foggy outside today and I found this little treat as I was leaving this morning. Halloween season is creeping in day by day.

Goldilocks Zone

The Goldilocks zone. The zone in which things are juuuust right. In this case, where is your Goldilocks zone for beginning to watch horror movies/specials? Is it still too early to settle in, turn the lights out and light the candles? Do you wait until October or have you begun the tradition already?

The time is almost right for me. The middle of September is when I start keeping my eyes open for TV specials and movies. What specials or movies are your favorites?
