This past weekend, I was at the Rue Morgue Dark Carnival in Hamilton, Ontario. The expo was great overall, and I will be posting photos all week. The highlight of the expo, for me, was seeing Dave Alexander, Editor-in-chief of Rue Morgue Magazine, interview Mitch Markowitz, Associate Producer of the Saturday morning classic television programme the Hilarious House of Frightenstein who is also known for his role as Super Hippy alongside Vincent Price in the show. Dave moderated the talk and audience questions really well, and Mitch told some one-of-a-kind stories about Billy Van, Vincent Price and the making of the show.
For nostalgia, here is an episode of the show:
I don’t remember Tales From the Crypt ever being late-night tv porn, but I remember wrong.
I wonder if my lusty weakness for French men stems from my childhood love for Jacques in the Beetlejuice cartoon?
Many Ghost Adventures episodes are my favourite. But the one that stands out for me is when the crew visits the Linda Vista Hospital. Their fear of being in that rough neighbourhood combined with the paranormal activity was captivating. I’ve watched it a few times, and the scene with the nurse always gets me.
