The Pork Chop Express Shook The Pillars Of Heaven On Halloween.

So Halloween has come and gone once again, and while it's always sad to see it go, I gotta remind myself that it wouldn't feel nearly as special if it lasted all year long. Besides, I ended things on a high note by dressing up in my homemade Jack Burton Pork Chop Express truck costume and drove it straight into the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival! Gimme your best candy, pal... I can take it!

My Big Trouble In Little China Jack Burton Halloween Costume! Happy Halloween from the Pork Chop Express, everybody! Thanks for hanging out with us so much over the past two months!

Thanks again to all of you who stuck around for I-Mockery's 2015 "Two Months of Halloween" celebration! Writing so many lengthy articles for the site during that time is always exhausting, but it's also an absolute blast knowing that it's a part of your annual Halloween traditions. As always, I like to share a recap of the many updates that were posted to the site between September 1st and October 31st in case you missed any of it. November is usually a slow month anyway, so what better time to catch up on some good reading? Here's a handy recap of some of the highlights you may have missed:

-We realized that kids in Japan were extremely lucky to see the Ma-Ba Zombies Mad Scientist toys released in their country.

-We saw that some b-movie aliens use Deadly Starfish to kill their prey.

-We saw what it was like when horror movie action figures became roommates, stopped being polite, and started getting real.

-We learned that all holidays can be horrific at the Field of Screams haunt.

-We were invited to the largest Los Angeles Halloween Convention to date and had an awesome time.

-We saw Ash and Xena Warrior Princess team up against the Army of Darkness.

-My stomach somehow endured another massive Halloween Candy Taste Test.

-We learned that Bill the grocery store killer really deserves to be ranked right up there with Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.

-We listened to more tunes on the Jack-O-Juke - our Halloween music jukebox with over 215 spooky songs and counting!

-We visited one of the best haunts on the east coast, The Headless Horseman Hayride & Haunted Houses.

-We learned all about the obscure Super Monstruos horror figures line from Spain.

-We saw that Huey Lewis and The News once made one of the greatest Halloween monster music videos.

-We winced at the memory of all the monsters from the Ghosts 'n Goblins NES game that killed us time and time again.

-We sold out of our Halloween Club Packs once again, so huge thanks to all of you who purchased one!

-We saw that one Slumber Party Massacre was more like Slumber Party Musical.

-We laughed at how seriously Morbius takes his vampire cosplay.

-We discovered that Personal Nightmare really had nothing to do with Elvira.

-We looked at another batch of classic horror-themed pinball machines.

-We were amazed at just how great Amazon's Monster Bucket turned out to be.

-We obeyed the wishes of The Gatekeeper in the old VHS board game, Nightmare.

-General Mills had me on their Monster Cereals Podcast to talk about Boo Berry.

-We saw that people were made of silly putty in the movie Society.

-We paid tribute to an unsung set of glorious monster vehicle trading cards called Weird Wheels.

-We walked through Michael Myers' home and gorged on Dippin' Dots at Halloween Horror Nights.

-We saw the many ridiculous ways one can die in the 1992 horror game, Waxworks.

-We indeed felt quite lucky and happy upon opening this mystery can.

-We were dazzled by thousands of carved pumpkin masterpieces at Rise of the Jack O' Lanterns.

-And lastly, we had some awesome entries in our Trick 'r Treat Animated Sam contest. Congrats to James and Joel3K for being our two lucky winners!

You know there is no time I enjoy more than Halloween each year, and having so many of you making I-Mockery your online Halloween home truly makes it all the better. I really try to give you guys the best and widest variety of Halloween coverage you'll find anywhere online every season - from visiting haunts and reviewing movies, to taste testing candies and tracking down the most absurd novelties and more, I always try to make every season special and filled with surprises. Please stick around and continue to share the site with your friends, and I'll do my best to keep that tradition going strong for years to come. As always, I must thank Dr. Boogie and Protoclown for their fantastic contributions to our Halloween celebration. I also gotta give Re major credit for basically turning our home into a Halloween junkyard these past few months.

Of course, a huge thanks again to you for sticking with us during our annual "Two Months of Halloween" celebration.

If you haven't already, please follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram. This is a completely independent web site, and we rely entirely on people like YOU to spread the word about it, so please do so if you can... it helps more than you could imagine!

Fantastic articles as usual. This is the first Hallyweens in a while I actually got plural trick-or-treaters, and it was really satisfying actually running out of candy. Sometimes the end of something fun still feels good when you look back on it.

Good stuff, overall. If you ever come across another DIY treat kit I'd love to see it covered..haven't seen that kind of article on here in a while.
Our house had a record number of trick or treaters this year...a whopping 3 kids! I also went to my aunt's house for a party. No costumes, but lots of treats and decorations to make up for it. She even put eyeballs in the soap dish! You would've loved it.
Spending Halloween night with indian food and karaoke...a good time, if you ask me.

Love the Catra Costume of the girl in your pic. Mind you absolutely love your even more elaborate than I would have imagined for the character from possibly my favourite movie ever. I've wanted to do Jack Burton, I will probably eventually do Jack Burton, but I will never do the Pork Chop express.


So what's the girl in gold? Did Roddy have his own "Elizabeth" that I've forgotten? Is that a tiny perrier bottle water she's holding that should tell the tale? Is Re her own creative version of the wicked witch, or am I failing to recognize something that I know I should have known?

Thanks for your pics, thanks for your efforts.

You're like the Elvira of the Internet. It wouldn't be Halloween without you.

ColdFusion - Thanks so much for sticking around for yet another Halloween season. You've been around for a loooong time! :)

ChamCrowder - Much appreciated. As for the DIY kits, I always keep an eye out for them, since I've had fun with the Halloween Peeps kits in the past and things like that. All depends if I find one that I think I can have fun with for an article. Also, your aunt sounds seriously awesome. Eyeballs in the soap dish? You shouldn't just go to her place for Halloween... you should move in!

baronterror - Catra was indeed awesome, as was Roddy Piper! I had a blast doing the Jack Burton costume, and it *is* my all-time favorite movie, so it's only natural I went over the top and made a truck for it too. The girl in gold was a glam vampire or "Glampire". Re wasn't referencing a specific character, she just made her own forest-like witch that turned out incredibly badass. Her glowing staff and hair were very easy to spot in those huge WeHo Halloween crowds!

ChrisGlass - Is this your subtle way of asking to see my boobs again? (okay)


A-bomb (Guest) on 11/04/2015 6:22 pm

That is one sweet costume! Even without the truck, everything from the mullet to the moccasin boots is perfect.

Thanks for another great Halloween season! You can count me on the list of people for whom your site has become an annual tradition. I know it must take a lot of effort for you to do what you do. Hell, just the big candy review every year is a superhuman feat. You should know that your readers really appreciate all the work you put into the season. Your love of the holiday really shows, and it's contagious. :) Here's looking forward to next September, and everything between now and then!
