Coming Monday: Classic Horror Club’s New Fall Season!

Back to school…  Falling leaves…  Shorter days; longer nights…  A chill in the air…  Halloween!  Our favorite time of year has arrived.  With the change in season comes a change in content at the Classic Horrors Club as we toss some new features into the cauldron with some old favorites to concoct a delicious brew guaranteed to keep you entertained and informed in the months to come…

Beginning Monday, September 10, please join us throughout the week for news, reviews, games & contests, plus plenty of surprises, as we incorporate the schedule for our “new fall season”:

Mondays: The Classic Horrors Club Movie of the Week

Formerly known as “Friday Fright,” we’ll now start the week, instead of end it, with my thoughts on a classic horror film, from silent screen to Halloween (1978), and everything scary in between.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch that movie sometime during the week and share your thoughts about it in the Comments section.  Let’s get a conversation started!  Watch for this hashtag on social media:

Tuesdays: Slay at Home Video

During weeks that have new home video releases, you’ll find reviews of Arrow Video, the Criterion Collection, Mondo Macabro, VCI and more, as well as complete lists of the latest DVDs and Blu-rays screaming at you to empty your wallets and bank accounts.  Watch for this hashtag on social media:

Wednesdays: Hump Day Headlines

Spinning at you from the screen: horrific headlines from classic horror movies… but which ones?  Check every Wednesday for the latest newspaper image, guess what movie it’s from, and win… notoriety?  (Sometimes there will be prizes.)  Send your answers to classichorrors.club@gmail.com so you don’t spoil it for others.  If you’re right, you’ll be mentioned in next week’s contest!  Watch for this hashtag on social media:

Fridays: TV Terror Guide

Of course, you can access the existing TV Terror Guide every day on our home page, but on Fridays, we’ll start listing in more detail everything scheduled for the next week on TCM, Comet TV, MeTV, Svengoolie, and more, so you can set your video recorders or plan when to call in sick at work.  With everything in one place, you’ll never miss something on TV ever again!  Watch for this hashtag on social media:

Daily on Social Media

Speaking of social media, you’ll continue to find regular posts for anniversaries of classic horror movie releases (#dayinclassichorror) and vintage horror movie trailers (#trailerpark) on Facebook (@classichorrors), Twitter (@classic_horrors) and Pinterest (classichorrors.club).  (Why Pinterest?  I like it better than Instagram for creating “photo albums” that you can easily peruse on your mobile devices.  We have albums for the “Five Ages of Classic Horror,” vintage newspaper ads, our fun “Originals,” and more.  Check it out!)

Countdown to Halloween

Of course, we’ll be participating in the “Countdown to Halloween” (#cth2018) as usual this year, but it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before!  I don’t want to let the black cat out of the trick or treat bag yet, but let’s just say that for once, it’s not going to be all about me.  Join me and some special “ghosts” as we sweep the laboratory and embark on an electrifying experiment in entertainment blogging.

The Classic Horrors Club Podcast

Rich and I will be back in October with a “Happy Hammer Halloween.” In November, we’re going on vacation to The Island of Dr. Moreau.  And in December, we’ll celebrate a “Creepy Cohen Christmas.”  Watch for new episodes here, as well as at Monster Movie Kid and Kansas City Cinephile, and join the club on our Facebook group page, “The Classic Horrors Club Podcast.”

Whew!  I can’t wait to get started.  I sincerely extend an invitation for you to join me beginning Monday, September 10.  However, as the deep-voiced announcer states at the beginning of each and every episode of our podcast:

Ladies and gentlemen, to those among you who are easily frightened, we suggest you turn away now.  To those of you who think you can take it, we say, “Welcome…”
