Welcome to the Crypt!
From the Desk of the Unimonster...
Happy Halloween, my fellow Creepies! After missing last month’s update while covering the HorrorHound Convention in Indianapolis (the sacrifices I make for our readers), we’re back with a double-sized update for your reading enjoyment!
First, Bobbie is here with not one but two reviews of the latest entries in the growing mythology of the common North American Mortuorum Ambulantum, or zombie. One, surprisingly enjoyable, and one, unsurprisingly—well, best to let her explain it. And in celebration of the season, S. J. Martiene reviews one of her favorite MSTied Monster Movies from the 1950s, the movie that helped add the word “Teenage” to the cinematic lexicon … Michael Landon’s fur-covered debut, I Was a Teenage Werewolf!
For my part, there is of course my write up of The Unimonster’s Crypt’s visit to HorrorHound weekend, as well as an article looking at a special anniversary that’s being celebrated this year … a celebration seventy-five years in the making. And of course, we’ll be rerunning one of my past Halloween articles.
So enjoy the reading, join our Facebook page and let us hear from you, and … STAY SCARY!

“… I cannot be Captain, for you see dear friends, I am unfit to lead other men into battle, into space, or in a line dance. I submit that if I picked my nose for a half an hour, my head would cave in. I’m nary to know betwixt shinola and that other stuff. I cannot lead because I cannot find my ass with both hands and a flashlight … I will now open the floor to questions about my accomplishments.”
