What are you afraid of? It's only rock and roll...

Phil, Melissa, Mitch, Mary, and Vinnie are high school friends, who unwittingly raise the dead on Halloween night. Once the dead have returned, Pitchford Cove will never be the same again....or will it?


For years now during the Countdown to Halloween I have read about The Midnight Hour so this year I made it a point to track it down. Sadly it was pretty easy to find thanks to YouTube once again. And after viewing The Midnight Hour I immediately kicked my self for not watching this one sooner!

What is not to love about this movie, young 80's up and coming stars, silly small town plot that works if you live in a small town (duh), fun Halloween costumes, witches, vampire zombies and a stellar soundtrack! This movie is so much fun why does it get a bad rap? The film also marks Macaulay Culkin…

Stardew Valley

So what am I doing when I am not blogging you ask? What do you mean you don't care? Well too bad Am going to tell you anyway. It's called Stardew Valley and it is the one video game I can not put down at all! If I go too long without playing I get nervous that my farm needs me not to mention my wife and kids! No not my real wife in kids my Kilmer Family on Cedar Famers. What makes this Farmville rip off so much fun I don't know I can not put a finger on it yet I come back day after day, in fact, I have put in well over 100 hours into this bad boy.  Of course my favorite season...


...is fall not only do the monsters come out at night you get to plant pumpkins and make pumpkin pie and fall in love... I mean virtually fall I Love You! And then there are the festivals aka Halloween where you get to watch dancing skeletons and do a corn maze, bonkers I tell ya Bonkers! The only thing missing is Trick or Treating now that would be cool.



In all honesty, this game is by far my fa…

Famous Monsters

Not really going to share music today but rather a different kind of sound. If you were lucky enough to grow up in the wonderful age of records you know just how much they could transfer you to another world. One record that has escaped me for years would be Famous Monsters Speak. I know you can buy this on Itunes or even pick up the CD but nothing can replace that sound of a record.



But a few records that did not escape me Alfred Hitchcock stories for young people! I had a few of these talk about perfect storytelling.


When it comes to Vincent Price most of my collection was on cassette tape. I think Price had way more than Hitchcock but that is ok they both do a great job of scaring the pants off of you.

What the heck did I just watch? I feel dirty for some reason after watching this train wreck. Was this really for kids, because the sexual tension between the charters was a little hard to handle.  How was this a Halloween movie?

So today the weather is cold and dark the perfect time for a Halloween film with the kids. We loved S…

In the Arizona desert, Professor Gerald Deemer is experimenting with growth hormones in the hopes of finding a way to increase the world's food supply. His partner in the project was recently found dead in the desert, suffering from a disease that normally takes years to advance but in this case seems to have afflicted him in only a few days. The local doctor, Matt Hastings, is puzzled by the strange case and with Deemer's recently arrived - and very pretty - assistant Stephanie Clayton tries to figure out what is going on. When cattle remains are found in the countryside, the evidence points to a giant tarantula as the culprit.




For the tarantula, an actual live spider was used. Blast's from air jets were used to make it move in the desired way over a miniature landscape. In the movie, Prof Deemer predicts that by the…
