The Munsters Documentary: 31 days of Classic Horror Cinema on Xanaland



What better a way to wrap up a month of horror flicks than with a nice family show?  The Munsters, for us adults, is a classic show that made boring afternoons stuck in the house while mom and dad were at work a little more bearable, and gave a few of us a head start into a macabre lifestyle that would stick with us forever! 



Have a wonderful and safe afternoon, and enjoy this interesting documentary on The Munsters!

The Real Story of The Amityville Horror: 31 Days of Horror Cinema on Xanaland



It's that time of year when old horrific crime stories resurface and gain renewed interest, so I thought we'd take a break from classic movies and check out this documentary on the real story of the Amityville house and murders...



It caught my attention since a few nights ago on Coast to Coast they spoke to the youngest son of the Lutz family... a very interesting episode about haunted houses, so put another log on the fake fire I have generously provided, and enjoy! 



Here is the link to the Coast to Coast show:

The Mansion of Madness: 31 Days of Classic Horror Cinema on Xanaland




The Mansion of Madness is a wild, wacky thing. Once I would think I’d finally put my finger on what the hell was going on, it switched gears and went somewhere completely different. Based (very loosely, which should be obvious) on Poe’s story “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether,” the film starts with Gaston LeBlanc recounting the mysterious death of his parents; when he says “But, that’s a story for another time,” he means it, and it’s never mentioned again. LeBlanc, his friend Couvier, and Couvier’s cousin are traveling to Dr. Maillard’s insane asylum in the middle of nowhere, as LeBlanc wants to write a newspaper article on the asylum, and Couvier and Dr. Maillard are old friends. Once they reach the grounds, Couvier and his cousin turn back, and LeBlanc gets the full tour of the place, where Dr. Maillard is perfecting his “soothing” method of treating mental illness. To explain much more about the plot would really be to spoil the fun for those who haven’t seen it; anyhow, I’m not really sure I could explain much more if I wanted to.

The film became a financial success, grossing $12 million domestically and $18 million internationally. Night of the Living Dead was heavily criticized at its release owing to explicit content, but eventually garnered critical acclaim and has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."[1][2] The film has entered the public domain due to an error by the distributor.[2][3]
