Oddments and Reflections

Seven years ago I began writing about Halloween, horror movies, and haunted attractions purely out of  love for all things spooky, creepy, and macabre. It’s something I developed a fascination with when I was a child. My family lived on London Street in Lincoln Park where my brother and I enjoyed creating dummies from our grandfather’s old work clothes and along with our sisters played haunted house in our basement. That love for the fall season has stayed with me my entire life and I consider myself fortunate for having the opportunity to have met and conversed with so many who share that same passion; and I owe much of that to the entries in this blog.

Inspired in part by Zioptis, this is something I began to do for fun. As time passed I began to get responses from haunt goers, owners, and actors who all enjoyed my writing. I found it rewarding to have that level of interaction. A few weeks ago, while flipping through the Haunt Guide, I discovered that Sinister had made mention of this blog in their ad. I got a real kick out of that and I’m not embarrassed to admit that it filled me with a sense of pride. Recently, after learning of this, my mother-in-law suggested I start promoting this blog in earnest and so I decided to have some business cards printed. I have no idea where this journey through monster infested corridors will lead me but I’ve enjoyed the trip thus far and have no plans to turn back. I can’t help but follow my heart, it just feels right.

Here I am mugging for the camera with the Sinister ad. As you may have surmised from the background I'm also a fan of the Detroit Red Wings.

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed that beneath my name it says “Reviewer & Videographer.” I absolutely delight in video production and earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Michigan University where I majored in Electronic Media and Film Studies. I produced a promotional video for a haunted attraction, Woods of Darkness in South Rockwood, and would love the chance to work with others in the haunt industry. Here’s a link to that video: Woods of Darkness Promotional Video. If interested you can of course leave a comment on this blog, call the number listed on the card, or contact me at the following email address: joel@bluestarproductions.net
