Creepy Music to “Get Down” to

So, I’m weird. We all know that. I’d like to think everyone has a little bit of weird in them. If not- keep reading my blogs and maybe I’ll rub off on you.

I enjoy blasting Danny Elfman while frolicking around my house by candle light. If I close my eyes I can pretend I’m in one of Tim Burton’s fantastical movies. I’m instantly taken away to fantasy land. Yes. I do this.

There aren’t many Danny Elfman like composers out there, however, and Halloween music/CDs tend to be very cheesy. Your options are “Monster Mash”, fake screams, and cliche mad scientist laughs. Now, thankfully, we have a better option. In fact, I dare say these songs are downright sexy. I’d play them on Halloween…. and every night in between (Of course, if you know me, you’d know Halloween is every day for me, but that is besides the point).

Fangoria Magazine's DVD of the Month (OCT 2010)

What is this sexy creepy music you ask? None other than Midnight Syndicate.

Their Halloween Music Collection CD is a mix of piano, Halloween, and sex (not literally, don’t worry). I love it. It’s far from the usual Halloween CD’s you’ll find everywhere else.

Also, if you are looking for a good fright, check out the trailer for their horror movie (and Fangoria Magazine’s Horror Movie of the Month)  “The Dead Matter”. It’s creepy as hell.

Midnight Syndicate

“Midnight Syndicate’s long-awaited dark fantasy film directed and scored by Edward Douglas and co-produced by Gary Jones and Robert Kurtzman. The Dead Matter tells the story of a guilt-ridden young woman (Sean Serino) desperate to contact her deceased brother who discovers a powerful ancient relic that controls the dead. Her dark obsession drags her into the tangled world of two warring vampire lords (Andrew Divoff of Lost , Wishmaster and Tom Savini of Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead), each with his own sinister plans for the artifact, and a vampire hunter (Jason Carter of Babylon 5) who will stop at nothing to destroy it. Classic horror themes with modern twists and a touch of dark humor that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”

Halloween is fast approaching and you guys need to escape your problems for a while and get into the season. So sit back… light some candles…. run a bubble bath… relax to some sexy devil music… and don’t forget to look in the mirror to catch a glimpse of the scary dead dude with a knife in his hand. They usually go hand in hand with bubble baths don’t they?

Dress as Your Fave Current Event for Halloween

One of the most talked-about Halloween costumes of the season, the “Bad Planning” (get it?) “BP” Oil Spill costume is in stock on frightcatalog.com — what do you think?

“Bad Planning” – BP Oil Spill Costume

When the Oil Spill Halloween costume design was released publicly in August, it was pretty controversial. A month and change can be a lot of time as far as current events go; it’s still in bad taste (and let me be clear: by saying it’s in bad taste, I’m not saying I’m offended by it, nor am I saying that Halloween costumes should be in “good” taste), but it was a little more shocking when the oil was still gushing, I think. Still, if you want a costume that says “2010,” this is it.

Well, that, or this:

Classic Witch Costume

Plus a red “NO” symbol painted on it — Christine O’Donnell! (Take it however you want.)

Freak Out the Neighborhood

Have you been on the FrightCatalog.com Facebook page lately? Fans from all over are sharing photos and videos from Halloweens past — especially the amazing yard decorations and home-based haunted houses. Envious? You too can create an awesome haunted room or yard! There are more cool decorations on FrightCatalog.com than anyone could ever cover in one blog post, but here are a some of the new higher end props (and one budget-friendly fun pick):

Stalkaround Creepo The Clown

Scar the neighbor kids for life with this scary 8-foot puppet that appears to move and walk on its own. $2,750.99.

Egyptian King Torso

Scary life-sized latex mummy torso to decorate your lawn or snack table. $299.99

Animated Suspended Skeleton

Thrashing animatronic skeleton! $3,199.99

Runaway Ghost Scene Light Up

Looking for something a bit lighter? This 8-foot long inflatable Pac-Man-inspired Halloween decoration will light up the lawn and get the laughs — only $89.99.

Wrap Yourself in Neon for Halloween

Of all the new items for 2010 in the FrightCatalog, I think I’m most excited about this:

Cool Neon Strobe Wire

No, it’s not a weird top hat with glow sticks taped to it… the item is the glow strands, but they’re not old-fangled temporary glow strands that you crack to mix the mysterious chemicals that make it shine for a few hours. These are four foot, pliable, battery powered neon lights that can be attached to any costume. Dress as a spaceship, or TRON or … a neon sign! Set to constant light or strobe! This is awesome. $16.99 per neon strand, comes in blue, yellow and green.

Oh, and speaking of glowing stuff, you know what else is cool? iGlow gels for hair and skin. I checked this out recently and it’s a must-have. This isn’t some day-glo color that shines under a blacklight–this goop actually glows.

iGlow Hair Gel

Apparently, the chemicals in glow sticks are not toxic when you mix them, because that’s the basic concept here: you mix together two parts, and the resulting gel glows for about eight hours. No “charging” under white light or anything–it’s fully self-illuminating.

Isn’t the future cool?
