Nosferatu, Accompanied

Brandt Sponseller of Classic-Horror writes that “nosferatu” is a modernization of a Slavic term, which is itself a modernization of the Greek “nosophoros,” or “plague carrier.” Director Freidrich Wilhelm Murnau, in the 1922 classic silent film Nosferatu, embraces this idea, having his Orlock (Dracula) appear rather rat-like with pointed teeth, nose, and those famously pointed […]

A Witch’s Brew

A Witch’s Brew

Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Shakespeare’s Night of Terror

Shakespeare’s Night of Terror

This is not Freddy Kruger terror or Stephen King horror, but after a bit of knifing, roaring, and disemboweling, the Ensemble Shakespeare Theater‘s “Night of Terror” steps into the truly terrifying… Emcee Fred Cross addresses an audience member and asks, “What is more frightening than blood and gore?” The man considers, then answers: “The mind.” […]

We of a certain age are too old for trick or treating, and for that we are grateful.

Spooklandia, Flix & Tricks

Not interested in traipsing the neighborhood with the brood in tow? Instead of door-to-door, go store-to-store in Old Pasadena at One Colorado. Afterwards, a family photo may be taken, even with your favorite canine (if appropriately dressed).

Halloween 2014-Style

Halloween 2014-Style

We’re suckers for the holiday season. From mid-October through the New Year, we love the sounds, smells, tastes and sites. The fact that days seem to disappear quicker during this time of year, though, does not amuse us. The calendar may indicate that there are four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we’d swear after […]
