Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeen!

Halloween is finally here, and I hope you're all celebrating it in style! Yes, I know it's on a Monday this year, but that's no excuse not to indulge in the festivities. Whether it's going trick-or-treating, dressing up in costume for a Halloween party, handing out candies, visiting haunted attractions, or simply watching a horror movie marathon - I just hope you're doing something to celebrate our favorite holiday!

Now, before I get into the meat of this post, you should know that there's a big surprise waiting for you at the very end of it. Don't go skipping ahead, because we have a lot to cover first. Trust me, it's worth the wait.

Happy Halloween! We went into the mountains and found a Halloween wagon!

Re and I spent our Halloweekend / Halloweeniversary by taking a trip up into the San Bernadino mountains in search of fall leaves. We found fall leaves galore up there, plus a nice little Halloween festival, a wagon full of pumpkins, some truly spooky fog, and more. As if that wasn't enough, we stayed in a tiny cabin in the woods in a little town that may sound familiar to some of you...

Twin Peaks! Damn good coffee... damn good Halloween!

That's right, we stumbled on a town called Twin Peaks. Amazing. I mean, how could we not stay in a town called Twin Peaks on a Halloween weekend? It was just too fitting. Damn good coffee... damn good weekend!

Also, in case you missed it (since I posted four new articles over the weekend), I shot my first Halloween yelling video ever! Take a look:

Thanks again to all of you who stuck around for I-Mockery's 2016 "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 revisited the classic Spooky World VHS tape, and felt like we were taken back to a simpler time of haunted attractions.

-We conducted a taste test of the Black Garlic Pepper Halloween Doritos from Japan and immediately craved more.

-We paid homage to The Lair of the White Worm, one of the most amazing and bizarre horror films that deserves to be appreciated by a much larger audience.

-We saw the Monsters Meet Pepsiman, and learned that Japan really knew how to create a killer Halloween promotion for Pepsi.

-We watched the 1990 Horror Hall of Fame awards show and were convinced that Gremlins should be in every awards show audience.

-We were overjoyed to see more Delbert McClintock in Arachnophobia: The Video Game.

-We fell in love with another batch of Horror Video Game Box Art.

-We visited the actual church from John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness and saw a screening of the film inside it.

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

-We were also invited to the new Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival and absolutely loved it.

-We remember just how cheesy The Lawnmower Man was with those 90s era CGI graphics.

-We ain't afraid of no ghosts. In fact, we love these vintage Real Ghostbusters Ghost Toys from Kenner.

-My eyes started bleeding pure cane sugar after another massive Halloween Candy Taste Test.

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

-We wished Bubba survived From Beyond, but it wasn't meant to be.

-We saw the glorious return of Hi-C Ecto Cooler, and hope it will come back every Halloween from now on.

-We visited the impressive Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns event, and marveled at the artistry that goes into all those carved pumpkins.

-We watched Pumpkinhead do what he does best: put smiles on our faces.

-We saw a determined elderly man continue to get tortured throughout his quest in The Immortal video game.

-We witnessed more glorious monstrosities at Monsterpalooza in Pasadena.

-We gazed upon even more Pinball Machines of Horror, with absolutely gorgeous backglass and playfield designs.

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

-We examined some classic Video Game Graveyards and realized they're some of our all-time favorite levels.

-We peeled back the layers of a horrific scene from the Lovecraftian tale, Dagon.

-We joined in on some spooktacular new Screen Junkies Halloween Episodes.

-We remembered the Greatest Horror TV Show Intros and some Meals of Horror.

-We saw Boo Berry and the other monster nominees running a Monster Cereal Election.

-We remembered just how weird Videodrome really is.

-We played with some new Halloween Toys that every horror toy fan should have in their collection.

-And lastly, we took an in-depth look at the Halloween Scenes in The Karate Kid and discovered some amazing things in the background!

You know there's no time I enjoy more than Halloween each year, and having so many of you making I-Mockery your virtual 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 & obscure novelties and more - I always try to make every season special and filled with surprises. Please 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 his fantastic contributions to our Halloween celebration. I also gotta give Re major credit for letting me turn our home into a Halloween junkyard these past several months.

Of course, a huge thanks again to you for sticking with us during our annual "Two Months of Halloween" celebration. It's a lot of work to put all this content together, but it's a lot of fun too, and your continued feedback definitely helps keep my energy up throughout the season.

Thanks again, and be sure to stick around, because I'll be updating the site with some new articles very soon. I'm also releasing our brand new pixel poster in November and considering doing a special limited edition Holiday Club Pack in December!

Oh, and I did promise you a big surprise at the end of this post, didn't I? Well, I'm a man of my word. Behold!

Grave Danger - Our new horror video game coming soon!

I'm happy to announce, that coming this November, we'll be releasing a brand new horror-themed video game that we've secretly been working on this year! I've been wanting to do a new horror game for ages, so I can't wait to unveil it to you. Full details about the game will be coming very soon, but I just waited to give you a little sneak peek with a screenshot from it. I hope you're all excited to play it, and I hope you all have a Happy Halloween!

Thank you again for another great two months of halloween! It really helps me get through all the _other_ holidays that come after. The night's still young though, and I hear the siren call of Castlevania...

Have a happy halloween, everyone!

Finally have a job this year that will let me afford FULL SIZE candy bars for my trick or treaters. Best I can do with Monday Halloweens. Kids are living the dream though.

Thanks for all the hard work you do to make September and October one of the most fun parts of the year. At a time when Halloween seems to be fading in a lot of ways, it's great to have a place to go that reminds me of how great the season can be. Here's looking forward to next year's and all the good stuff you do in between!


Anthony (Guest) on 11/02/2016 11:17 am

Really appreciate all of the work you put into the site, especially around Halloween. Thanks!


Feliix Vasquez (Guest) on 11/02/2016 3:13 pm

You outdid yourself this year. I had a great time following your site through the Halloween festivities. Thanks for your hard work.


Hurricane Martha (Guest) on 11/02/2016 4:43 pm

Thanks for all your effort.


Conan (Guest) on 11/05/2016 9:33 pm

I love this place, really helped me feel the Fall spirit, sadly this Halloween and 2016 in general have been pretty shit for me, so I didn't even watch anything 'horrory', real life will forever be far scarier then any ghoul or goblin fiction can provide. Still, this place gives me a nice chill oasis where I experience all the wonders of the holiday, awesome music, and fun reads.

Thanks for all the wonderful spooky Halloween things, i-Mockery is my virtual Halloween hangout.
