Everyone has neighbors. Even all the creeps. Every creepy thing, every creepy creep… all live next door to someone. Do you know who your neighbors are? Do you ever see them out? In the daylight?
In the Fright Night films, Charley Brewster gets a new neighbor with strange sleeping habits and a weird diet of fruit… and people. Well, people’s blood anyway!
Lend these guys some sugar?
With all the fad diets out there, you never can be too careful. Maybe you should adjust your diet too… just add some garlic to everything.
David Tennant as Peter Vincent in the 2011 film thinks that’s an excellent suggestion.
You may want to watch Fright Night (1985) and Fright Night (2011) to see how Charley handled the situation along with help from famed vampire killer Peter Vincent. Both films are available at the Media Library.
In an October Scare-A-Day post last week, we mentioned Tom Savini for his work on Dawn of the Dead (1978).
Tom Savini is a master of movie makeup, gore, special effects, and visual effects. You have also seen him acting in several spooky/gorey flicks such as From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror, and even in a special cameo of the Dawn of the Dead remake in 2004.
Did you catch the reference?
Take a look behind the scenes and gore, fake blood, and latex as Savini himself talks about his gruesome craft in this Video on Demand available through the UNT Media Library, “Horror Effects Hosted By Tom Savini“.
If you want a little more, “I Heart Monster Movies” is also available for online viewing and features an interview with Tom Savini along with other big horror buffs, including Sid Haig, Doug Bradley, Bill Moseley, Dee Wallace, and many others.
Don’t be scared to check out the online videos available through the UNT Media Library. There’s something for everyone!
Mansions of Madness Boardgame 275
Up ahead, isolated in the Massachusetts countryside, stands a secluded mansion. This is where the clues have led you. This is where you will finally find the answers you have been seeking. As you advance through the cold, driving rain, the dim light dancing in the ornate windows gives the appearance of a dozen sinister eyes watching your approach. The very walls are infested with evil and the great house seems to stare at you with hostility, but despite the growing fear gnawing at your soul, you press on. You must. This madness has to end, and by God, it will end tonight… even if it kills you.
Spawned from the horrific genius of H. P. Lovecraft, Mansions of Madness is set in the ill-fated fabled town of Arkham, Massachusetts. It is a veritable graveyard with derelict buildings standing like so many tombstones. Through eerie fog, creatures of unspeakable origins loom monstrous, devouring bodies and souls as they roam.
Risk your health, sanity, and consequences worse than death as you work against sinister plots in Mansions of Madness.
