And in truly heartbreaking news, fellow horror blogger James Harris A.K.A.ย Doc Terror has passed away. I didn’t know him personally, but I loved his blog. A few years ago, I won one of his giveaways and he sent me a sweet-ass Dario Argento mirror for answering a question about the Friday the 13th series. I love it, and will cherish it even more now. <3

R.I.P. Doc Terror, and thank you for everything. ๐Ÿ™ Bloody Disgusting

 

Catching Up on Ho-rror Happenings, Part 2: Phantom of the Paradise Edition.

As I may have mentioned a time or two (thousand ;)), this week the Arclight in Hollywood hosted an UNBELIEVABLE 40th Anniversary Screening/cast reunion for the cult classic Phantom of the Paradise. Edgar Wright (who was unbelievably adorable and very sweet, btw :)), hosted a Q&A panel featuring many of the cast members from the 70’s classic, including Jessica Harperย (my #WCW this week, btw…I’ll make sure she gets the full post she is ultra-deserving of a bit later :)), Paul Williams, and Gerrit “The Motherfreakin’ Man” Graham.

Alas, I wasn’t able to cover this event as thoroughly as I would’ve liked for all my lil Kinkbots out there, as both my camera and phone were still chock full of Comic Con pics I hadn’t sorted through yet. ๐Ÿ™ Here are a few highlights for ya, though, and I’ll post more pics as they come a’dribblin’ in… ๐Ÿ™‚

(This is how I decided to rep PotP, btw. Instead of wearing an incomplete/ “Slutty” Phantom costume, I just did a 70’s-inspired Glam Rock look with my Death Records gear…As it turns out, this was probably a REALLY good choice. The cosplay talent there was BONKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Helmets off to all of those die hard Phantom-aniacs at the event who really put me in my place!! You guys were all too awesome for words!!!! :)) xoxoxo
