The Greatest Horror TV Show Intros!

September has been absolutely great so far, writing nothing but Halloween articles and hearing your comments on them, so a big thanks to all of you who have been joining in the discussions. Again, the best compliment you can pay us for writing these articles, is posting your thoughts about 'em in the comments sections and sharing them with your chums on social media.

I'm also happy to announce that I-Mockery's Halloween Club Packs WILL be returning once again this year! I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do them this time, which is why I hadn't announced it, but everything magically came together over the past two weeks, so I'll be announcing details about them later this month!

In the meantime, aside from all the Halloween material I'm working on for I-Mockery, I also wrote another piece for Dread Central that just went live!

The Greatest Horror TV Show Intros: Part 1!

The Greatest Horror TV Show Intros: Part 1 is another new series of articles I'm doing for them, and I cover some of my favorite title sequences including Monsters (which some of you may remember from The Match Game episode I wrote about some years ago), True Blood, and more. As always, thanks for reading, and please do me a solid by posting in the comments section of the article on Dread Central and sharing what other horror TV show intros you'd like to see me cover. I just might include 'em in future installments!

More articles to come!

I've been out of the loop too long - other than Dread Central, whereall else can I enjoy the unique taste of -RoG-?

Roland - If you want that bold, rich flavor, you can see some of my pieces on Blumhouse. I'm on Twitter a lot too @imockery, so that's always a good way to keep up with what I'm up to on any given day. Thanks for asking, and good to have you back this Halloween season!

-RoG- - Oh god, it's like, I went into a convenience store way outta town and found a bunch of candy that I thought had gone out of production decades ago.

Only it isn't making my stereotypical nerd gut worse, because -RoG- is 100% calorie free!

I'm gonna be here all night.

I'm SOOO happy to see that you're still doing the Halloween Club Packs! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us this year!

Must admit, I get a kick out of knowing both of us contribute to Dread Central. For years both you and Matt over at dino drac (formerly x-entertainment) were the inspiration for me to try out blogging. I guess seeing our work on the same site makes me feel like I'm starting to catch up.

Otherwise nice concept for an article series. Hope to see Tales from the Darkside on a later entry, cause let's face it, there is no better opening.

This series of articles is RIGHT in my wheelhouse. I absolutely loved the horror anthology shows of yore and recently there have been a great resurgence in tv show openings being works of stand alone art in their own right.

I'll be going over there to see what you got going on. Be sure to keep posting here to let us know when you have something new elsewhere.

Ah yes, I vividly remember running out of the living room at full speed every time I would see the Tales from the Crypt intro start while my parents were watching TV when I was a child so that I could avoid witnessing the horror of the Crypt Keeper popping out of his coffin. In the years since it's become my favorite intro to a TV series, and I rarely skipped it when I watched the entire run of the series on DVD. The house is actually created using miniatures, sets, and an early example of a CG environment, but every element is so well done that it really looks like a seamless tracking shot if you don't know otherwise.

Billy - I'm glad to be doing the Halloween Club Packs again too. I think people are gonna flip out over them when they see what I'm including this time!

Justin - Thanks for the compliments man. The Dread Central guys have been awesome, and kudos on writing for them too. Keep at it!

baronterror - Same here. I wish we had more horror anthology series like we did back in the day. Thanks for checking out the article!

Pete - I'd love to see a "making of" video for that Tales from the Crypt intro. Wonder if somebody held onto all the miniature sets they made for it. It really is beautifully crafted.

I miss theme songs ~in general~
Addams Family sure wrote the book on it, and the Munsters rocked that whole thing too. Just... minor chords, harpsichord stings, somethin' catchy.
I really need to check out Stranger Things. That's exactly what I've been wanting outta TV forever, and once again it's Netflix that provides.
