I’ve been thinking about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre of late. It’s probably because Murk, the, uh, let’s call him groundskeeper here at Castle Blogferatu, asked what my favorite movie is. The conversation went something like this:
MURK: Grunt, snort, ugh.
ME: What do you mean, “What is my favorite horror movie?”
MURK: Grunt, snort, ugh, sniff.
ME: No, it is not a simple question, but either Psycho or Texas Chainsaw Massacre, why?
MURK: Mumble, mumble, blurg.
ME: Well, I suppose you’re right. One could arguably examine Chainsaw as a reaction to and commentary on the violence of a post-postmod…Wait. Don’t you have a dungeon to clean??
MURK: Spork. Continue Reading
From time to time, circumstances dictate that I leave Castle Blogferatu in the family hearse in order to run a few errands. Grocery store. Hardware store. Morgue. Local necromancer. Y’know, run-of-the-mill kinda stuff. Every now and then, these excursions into the real world get me pulled over. Continue Reading
If there’s one thing we at Castle Blogferatu love nearly as much as all things horror, it’s a fine, heady brew. Just ask Dr. Terror who can so often be found working diligently on some new concoction or other. My point, and I do have one, is that this is such a keen area of interest that I’ve branched out and started a beer blog. Obviously Grogferatu.com was the only suitable name for it.
Sadly, that means dividing time between one blog and the other, usually alternating between the two from week to week. If you’re like me, a horror nerd who is also a big beer fan, I hope you’ll show the new blog some love as well. Come check it out. Follow, like, share, all that fun stuff we bloggy types do. Hope you stop by!
Well, everyone here at Castle Blogferatu is nicely mended. With the help of his latest experimental formula, Dr. Terror has restored all to perfect vigor. Interesting side effect, however. The good doctor claims it could extend one’s lifespan thousands of years.
Regrettably, he fears youth does not extend with it, but he’s working on that. Might be time to put that detour sign back up on the scenic bypass in hopes of
luring recruiting a few test subjects. In any case, this month’s Naro Escape is that tried and true horror standby, The Anthology Film. Continue Reading
Sadly this week the denizens of Castle Blogferatu have been waylaid by an unseen enemy from within. Findings from our Mad Scientist In Residence, Dr. Terror (who looks unnervingly like Peter Cushing and doubles as our house physician), indicate some mutant hybrid of Black Plague/Pneumonia/Consumption/Dropsy/T-Virus. He assures me that all will be well in a few days as long as everyone gets plenty of rest, drinks lots of fluids, and we paint an Elder Sign on the front door. But fear not. Blogferatu will be back next week with another installment of The Naro Escape!
