How I Spent My Halloween Season in 31 Pictures!!! (2015)

I did something similar to this last year on the blog where I posted 31 Pictures of how I spent my Halloween Season (see Post) and thought why not do a sequel showing what I was up to this year!

"He Who Walks Behind The Rows . . ." 
We start things off with this picture of me in front of a cornfield while wearing Fright-Rags's "The Children of the Corn" shirt! This pic was taken not far from my Pop's Cabin up the Mountains a great  place to kick off the Fall Season!

Remembering “If It Were Stine”!

With the “Goosebumps” movie hitting theaters in a couple weeks, I thought it was a good time to revisit in my opinion one of the coolest projects that hit the Horror Community in the past few years!
It was called “If It Were Stine” and the idea was to take pre-existing Classic Horror Movies and reimagined them as books that would have been written by R.L. Stine!



The Artist was Theodore Holmstead-Scott and together with Jude Deluca (whom would do the all the blurbs) would create mock covers in the classic “Goosebumps” style fans around the world fondly remember from their youth! What I loved most about these “Books” were the  names they gave each movies, for example instead of just calling it “A Nightmare on Elm Street” they opt for the very Stine-like title “The Man of My Dreams” . . .



Below you will some of my favorites “If It Were Stine” covers that were created by these very talented artists . . .

(Me with George P. Wilbur - Halloween 4's The Shape)

A little Halloween Edition of Thursday Throwback!

To kick off the Halloween Season here’s two pictures yours truly from the early 80s!


The picture of me on the left was taken in 1985 when I went as a Black Cat!
I couldn’t find any pics from when I was one or two, so I don’t what (if anything) I went out as those particular years, but I do sorta remember rocking this Cat costume for some reason!

The picture on the right (with me trowing down some throwing down some gangster signs for some reason) was taken outside my old neighbor Jack’s house! I have very fond memories of this Pumpkin Man when I was a kid and he was in many ways the the Neighborhood’s unofficial herald of the Halloween Season! When he would appear at the start of each October the rest of the houses on the street would take note and start putting out their decorations as well!
