You play a good game, boy, but the game is finished. Now… you watch Adult Swim!
In the year of 2004, Adult Swim summoned the late, great Angus Scrimm to ho-st a Halloween marathon of the freakiest episodes of one of Adult Swim’s freakiest shows: Aqua Teen Hunger Force! Master Scrimm was at his Tall Man best, with a menacing glare and that wonderfully frightful voice. Dressed to kill in black, Scrimm knocks ’em dead with his signature grimaces and a few classic Phantasm quotes sprinkled about. Even in the goofiest setting, there’s nothing like Mr. Scrimm letting out a “BOY!” to freeze the blood and paralyze the soul! Like Vincent Price before him, it’s clear that he had a “ball” with his ghoulish persona. Each bumper delivers a chill and a wink in a way that only a true Prince of Terror could pull off. Whether in a funeral home or a late night cable spot, The Tall Man knew how to deliver the creeps. Who else but Scrimm could make a shake, some meat, and an order of fries seem so ghastly?
Check out the bumpers/commercials below……if you have the balls! 😉 xoxo

Greetings, boils and ghouls! We here at Kinky Horror like to shine a blood red spotlight on some glorious grotesquies that you may have missed. Today’s hidden gem is a shocking short from MakeDo Entertainment simply titled The Jester.
The Jester tells the tale of the titular ghoul, a petrifying prestidigitator who punishes those who lack the Halloween spirit. With a spider-like grace and a silent charisma, he stalks the night to search for an audience for his macabre magic. At only ten minutes, The Jester creates a wonderful monster that could easily support a full-length feature. Heck, this mad magician has the potential to become a franchise figure! While there are some conceptual similarities to Sam from Trick ‘r Treat, The Jester stands on his own as a guardian of Halloween. For those looking for an early Halloween treat, check out The Jester below!
And since we are now officially officially in the midst of what normal folks HAVE to consider Halloween Season, here’s the Officially Official Song of Scariness to get things started on a super sweet note…
(That is sincerely one of my favorite songs ever, and I’ll be keeping it in heavy rotation from now until Nov. 1. :)) Happy Halloween (Season ;)) Ho-rror Ho-mies!! xoxo
It’s sort of the Halloween edition of Toys for Tots, which is obviously a BRILLIANT idea, so click the little linky and make some kickass kiddies happy, will ya?? 🙂 You can help just by donating time, or you can send in old costumes/props (I’m looking at you, fellow cosplayers!!!!! :)), pledge money directly to the org. for their discretionary use, or…in what is, to me, the most amazing thing ever…you can visit their “Pumpkin Patch” and see EXACTLY what costumes specific kids are hoping for and sponsor them individually!!!! That is just the single coolest thing I’ve ever heard of, and I love the ‘WeenDream folks for coming up with this idea!!!!! Check out this small sampling of some of the costume requests they have posted…They are super adorable!! I hope every single kid on here (and more) gets to be what they want for Halloween this year. (Especially lil’ “Pencil” dude…That MUST happen!!! :))
