Welcome to this week’s edition of Chiller Theater.
Turn the lights down low. Put on your spookiest music and join me for a trip into Carnacki’s House of Horrors.*
*This is not a rip off of Cheers & Jeers. This is a blatant rip off of Cheers and Jeers. Except it’s Thrills and Chills and it’s got a supernatural theme.
Thrills to the Serpent Mound in Ohio. The Moundbuilders may have built the site over a meteor crash.
Chills to Amityville tourists. The New York Daily News reports interest in the new Amityville movie has drawn unsavory horror fans to the quiet Long Island neighborhood. Hey you kids, get off my lawn!
Thrills to Sarah Michelle Gellar. The vampire slayer celebrated her 28th birthday this week. If the apocalypse comes, beep me.
Chills to going for the jugular. A man in Lytham, England tries to bite a woman’s neck in a “vampire style” attack, according to Blackpool Police. Oh sure, blame the Un-dead. Somebody alert the Vampire Anti-Defamation League.
Thrills to residents stopping a development project in Wrexham, England, that once was the site of a witches’ dunking pond. The BBC reports the site may have been where witches were tested and possibly drowned. Residents opposed the development because it would increase traffic. Increased traffic? A likely story. That ancient curse had nothing to do with it. (OK, I made up the part about the curse. But if there were witches killed there, they probably did curse the site like in the Vincent Price classic The Haunted Palace.)
Chills to blood red state values. A Texas mother reported her son to the authorities, saying he belonged to a vampire cult that planned to kill and bathe in the victim’s blood. Sounds like a typical Tom DeLay Republican to me.
So what are you thrilling and chilling about?
