D.Catalano - Strange Brother, Stranger Sister (Music Video)

Below is our latest music video for D.Catalano's track "Strange Brother, Stranger Sister" off his new album "Everyone Else That Isn't You." Intended to be a part of a different project that didn't quite come to fruition. I used the existing footage and put this together instead. The end result perfectly captures the dread and gloom of a tortured soul.

Pic Stories #2: Dark Manor

As most people know haunted houses are one of my favorite attractions to attend every October. After a very rainy trip to Salem, Massachusetts I decided to stop by a random haunt on my way to NYC. This photo was captured after exiting the Dark Manor haunted attraction in Norwich, CT. The haunt itself was terrifying but in a good way! Check out the review in my 2016 Halloween recap . After we regained our composure from fright; I decided to snap a picture of the spooky facade. I loved how intimidating it looked; the creepy red light glimmering through a window, Skulls lined up and down the side panels. The haunts name was primitively carved into the wood above. Everything screamed “DO NOT ENTER” which is something you want from a haunted house. The horror ended, and then just seconds after taking the picture, a scare actor (doing her best Jared Leto joker impression) popped her head out to compliment my girlfriend’s ear gauges. It was hilarious to see this girl dressed up as a psychotic clown completely break character just to share some kind words. It’s a funny detail and moment of levity in an otherwise sinister looking photo.

Check out the first edition of Pic Stories here, along with a short intro detailing why I started the series.

Goosebumps: Shrieks and Spiders (Game Review)

Goosebumps: Shrieks and Spiders (Game Review)

Goosebumps, a wildly popular children's book series in the nineties, revolves around horror themed tales with pre-teens as the main protagonists. The books cover everything from ghosts, monsters, and even a sinister ventriloquist dummy. Like most things aimed at children, a plethora of Goosebumps related tie-in products existed; Toys, video games, even birthday party supplies. As a kid I wanted to get my hands on as much of this stuff as possible. Anything I didn't get as a kid I've since hunted for as an adult. A few years back on my birthday I was fortunate to have been gifted one of their board games. I was so stoked as I had no clue this game existed. Like most collectors I've kept it in it's original packaging in attempt to keep it as pristine as possible. Finally giving in, I said 'F-it", opened it and boy, was it worth it.
