Halloween

With the evening of ghosties and goblins approaching, thought a thread on Halloween might be fun.
To start off, here is Vincent Price reading Graveyard Tales.

“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Agree. Much better than Pee Wee Herman. But, if you were sitting in a dark movie theater, who would be scarier to sit next to, Pee Wee or Vince?  :hide:

Why has no one released a compilation of Florida Halloween stories?

Oh well, Vincent has lots of stuff.

Creepypasta time!

One of my Youtube acquaintances (we've spoken a few times) has an interesting story to tell about a haunted office building, back when he was a security guard. All together the videos take about an hour.





Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Strategic Werewolf Axe-chopping Simulator video AAR!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

The full pdf of Cry of Justice has been posted to the Grogheads Book category here.

Pratt if I watch the above videos am I opening myself up to something...terrible?

I am terrified and very curious about demonology simultaneously.
