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?

SawJigsaw Tobin Bell Mask Adult

Tobin Bell aka “Jigsaw” of the Saw movies is perhaps one of my favorite of all movie killers. He never really directly killed anyone or took a completely “innocent” victim. His victims were people with shady pasts who didn’t full appreciate life as they should. Jigsaw’s mission was to teach a lesson, and he did so but putting victims in sadistic torture games that they could get out of if they made the right move. Jigsaw is a smart and calculating man. His games are deliciously twisted.

What originally started as a low budget horror movie has turned into a multimillion dollar franchise. There has been a new Saw movie every year since the original Saw came out in theaters in 2004. There are costumes, video games, books, and even theme park attractions dedicated to the followers of the movies. Now with the 3D movie craze sweeping the nation, you can be on the look out for the seventh installment of the Saw series set to come out in theaters October, 2010. As long as the Saw movies keep coming, I will keep paying to get my fix of mind bending torture.

If you can’t hold off another month, play this free online game to keep you occupied in the meantime. It’s harder then you think, but the code can be cracked. Don’t get discouraged if your victims have to die a few times before you get it right. After all, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

Still want more? Great! I saved the best for last.

Stare yourself in the face as you sit in pure fear for your life. Are you smart enough and quick enough to get out alive? I wasn’t.

Zombie-tastic Moms

Carrie-Anne Moss as Helen in "Fido."

The zombie plague puts mothers at a distinct disadvantage. While a mother’s survival instinct is strong enough to help her stay alive under horrendous circumstances, she will doom herself to protect and care for her child without a second thought. It’s what moms do. So, in honor of Mothers’ Day, here are five zombie movie moms worth celebrating (spoilers ahead):

Helen Cooper, Night of the Living Dead – Helen believed that her young daughter would recover from a zombie bite up until the moment she saw little Karen devouring her husband, and even then didn’t see it coming that she’d be her baby’s next course. Would she have protected Karen until she turned even if she knew the bite would turn her into the ravenous undead? Probably.

Luda, Dawn of the Dead (2004 remake) – Remake screenwriter James Gunn went there: the unborn undead. When pregnant Luda shows her husband the bite mark, you know it won’t end well. The zombie childbirth arc was shocking enough to be called shameless gimmickry by the jaded, so you know it’s awesome.

Helen Robinson, Fido – Ideal housewife Helen has an affection for her young son’s best friend and pet, a lovable electronically-tamed zombie named Fido. Mom saves the day for her son and Fido, if not her zombie-hating husband, without letting a hair fall out of place.

Kathy, Quarantine – Like Helen Cooper, Kathy protects and tries to nurse her infected child to health only to be attacked by her. Kathy survives (for a while), and still tries to protect her, forcing the others to handcuff her to a banister and reinforcing the notion of unconditional motherly love.

Selena, 28 Days Later – Though not a mother (that we know of) in a biological sense, Selena’s instincts turn maternal when young Hannah is orphaned. When she realizes they’ve been lured into what amounts to sex slavery, Selena does whatever she has to to distract the uninfected-but-out-of-their-minds men from Hannah, like a true mom.

This Mothers’ Day, give Mom what she really wants: a nice bouquet, no bickering in the house for five minutes, and the promise that you won’t hold it against her if she cuts off your head to save herself should you ever get infected.

IRON MAN!

Iron Man Super Deluxe Adult Costume

With my gloriously twisted mind, I picture Iron Man as a dude that got his super powers from being slammed in the face with a heavy metal iron by a pissed off wife. That sort of Iron Man wouldn’t be very pretty… but maybe his shirt would always be properly de-wrinkled.

The Real Iron Man

Anyway, let’s discuss the Iron Man we already know and love. The first Iron Man was a smash hit. We love our superhero movies! Iron Man is sort of reminiscent of Batman, only a lot more colorful and dare I say, cocky. He’s rich and can build/buy anything he wants. He’s also the most eligible bachelor in town. In the end, unlike Batman, he unveils his secret identity and tells the world he is Iron Man. If you haven’t seen the first one, you must live under a rock. In case you do, in fact, live under a rock, here is the basic synopsis:

Our hero is Tony Stark, the super wealthy CIO of Stark Industries. Stark’s company is dedicated to weapons manufacturing on a massive scale. In Afghanistan on a mission to demonstrate new missiles, Tony and his convoy are attacked. He is taken as a hostage by the enemy. While in captivity, Tony builds an Iron Man suit and escapes. When he comes home safely he stops weapons manufacturing so he can dedicate more time to perfecting his suit which he then uses to fight evil.

Now the much anticipated sequel, Iron Man 2, hits theaters tomorrow, Friday April 7th. You will see some of the original cast (Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow) along with some new sexy familiar faces such as Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke. This sequel promises to deliver action packed fight scenes coupled with Robert’s famous sarcastic humor.

Deluxe Freddy Krueger Overhead Latex Mask

He’s baaaack.

Seems like Freddy just won’t die. He’s come for another round of terrorizing teens and audiences alike.

Ms Krueger Naughty Nightmare Adult Costume

The latest Krueger appearance is in the new movie “A Nightmare on Elm Street” scheduled to drop in theaters Friday, April 30th. The movie is based on characters from the 1984 Nightmare that we all grew up with. Sadly, there will be no Johnny Depp in this one. Instead, we get a cast of some seemingly familiar faces. The teens come together due to similar experiences concerning Freddy. As each starts to die off, it becomes critical to find out why they are being targeted and what they can do to stop it… before it’s too late.

To celebrate the movie…and creep people out in theaters, Fright Catalog has you stocked on all things that go bump in the night. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, take your lady to the theater in matching costumes. Children will scream and movie goers will applaud. Show up a little early and get yourself ready for an inevitable photo session.

If instead, you just want a little creep in the theater, get one of our famous Freddy claws and prepare for spine tingling fun. Go with a large group of friends or just your innocent lady friend, and keep your claws hidden. When the opportunity strikes you put on your hand and tap your friends on the shoulder using your best snaring growl. They will jump 5 feet out of their chairs! Pick a moment when the suspense is so thick you can cut it with a knife… or finger blades.

Freddy Kruegers Glove

If you are perhaps the most devious of them all. If you decide you really don’t mind if you lose a friend or two. Wait til everyone gathers after the movie for drinking and games. Let them drink their fears away. When you feel the time is right, turn off all the lights. Slip on your mask and Freddy glove…. and….well… you know. Bring the movie to life. The screams will echo and people will run. You just gave them a night to remember. They should be thankful.

Every day is Halloween. Live in the dark with everything that slithers and snarles. Fright Catalog has everything you need to fight the vampires… or become one. You can raise the dead… or walk among the living dead. Raise a cup and open your eyes, because the devils crawl until the sun does arise.

Pleasant Dreams.
