Something Gruesome This Way Comes.......



Bad craziness has meant that the blog has fallen by the wayside in recent months....we'll forget about reasons why for now though, as apparently time has apparently lied to me once again and it's now October rather than June or something.....



And we all know that October means Halloween! And time to finally finish off the 2nd list of Gruesome Games! So, hopefully starting from tomorrow I'll be writing about the last lot of those, and getting all spooky-dooky and posting more about films, comics, toys,etc. that are of a horrifically halloweeny nature! Yes, you can expect more from old horror comics, Cinema Of Stuff & whatever other groovy ghoulishness I can find! I'll also explain at some point what I've been up to these last few months, and why it's been so quiet! So see you here tomorrow then, my freaky friends! :-)

Happy Star Wars Day!





Once again, May the 4th rolls around and everybody's going silly for Siths, 'Sabers and Starkillers! I thought I might as well stick a post up as well, but first off, before we get into all the Star Wars stuff, yesterday was Free Comic Book Day and Dark Horse Digital had  all sorts of things to read for the massive price of nothing!



They do, of course, also do a whole load of Star Wars comics, and so here's links to starter packs for Star Wars EmpireStar Wars : Knights Of The Old Republic and Star Wars : Legacy! Again, these are free! Definitely not free is the Star Wars May The 4th Megabundle! This will set you back $100, but you get 151 comics to download for your cash! 


You might also want to head over to Marvel and other comic-type places to see if they've any free stuff to download! Anyway, that's nowhere near enough Star Wars for May The Fourth, so have a few cartoons and things....


Like Droids!


Ewoks!


And Caravan Of Courage

Update & Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Another month passed all ready! Where the heck is time going these days? I'm a bit busy getting stuff ready for something pretty major, so haven't had as much time as I'd like to be posting on the blog...but it's all going to be  very exciting! Well, for me anyway...and hopefully for a few of you at least! All very mysterious I know, but more news will be coming about this soon, so keep yir eyes peeled!

The much delayed end of the Gruesome Games list is being held off until October now because of all this though, where I'm planning to change it up a bit and just have one game a day after the initial catch-up...which should mean I actually have time to get through them and we won't be left with 20 still to do next year! This also frees me up to concentrate on some other new things I've been wanting to stick on the blog, so after the next month or so, the posts should be more frequent and a little more varied...In the meantime, Happy St. Patrick's Day! And have another lazy cartoon post filled with gold and leprechauns!

By The Power Of Grayskull !



"In today's story, Deadpan Flook discovered that some fans have decided to be awesome and create a beat-em-up based on Masters Of The Universe! Many actual companies have tried to create games based on He-Man before, but they have all failed to capture the feeling of the original show...Well now we all fail sometimes, but we should never be afraid to try again. And we should always keep believing in ourselves. As the old saying goes 'if at first you don't succeed, try try again.' Until later, bye."



You can get the playable demo here.......and read more about how it came to be here!

And to celebrate, let's listen to the He-Man single by Masters Of  The Universe!

Cinema Of Stuff Presents - The Undying Monster !


In this 1942 20th Century Fox film based on a 1936 novel by Jessie Douglas Kerruish, the Hammond family are trying to deal with a curse that sees its members dying or commiting suicide under mysterious circumstances. Helga Hammond (Heather Angel) and her brother don't believe in all this curse nonsense and put it down to foolish superstition. However, when Oliver Hammond (John Howard) and a local girl are attacked by a strange creature one starry, frosty night, Scotland Yard send out Robert Curtis (James Ellison) and sidekick Christy (Heather Thatcher) to try and find a more scientific, logical explanation for all the spooky shenanigans! But what will they actually discover? And why is everyone at the Hammond House acting so strangely?
