Colossus of Armada

Posted in Preludes and Nocturnes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2013 by bluefall8

In the time since our haunted travels began we’ve toured just about every major haunted attraction throughout Michigan, but one monster of the scene has evaded us and tonight we’ll finally add it to our collection — and the name of that location is Blake’s. We’ve made various attempts over the years to visit but inevitably some factor arose to thwart our plans, but not tonight.

First, we’ll make an inaugural stop at another location, Purgatory’s Revenge in New Haven, and then we travel to storied Armada where we’ll experience Blake’s 3-Story Haunted Barn, the much heralded Nighttime Spooky Hayride, and perhaps even stuff our maws with the various vittles I’ve heard so much about. Once done there if time should happen to permit we’ll waltz right on down the road and cap off the night at Slaughtered at Sundown, yet another maiden haunt for us. Slaughtered at Sundown has a haunted barn of their own as well as the Slaughtered Town Hayride.

Also, reviews from the Realm of Haunted Minds and the Funeral Home will be posted this weekend; and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Mud Puppets Halloween Special, Our Muddier Nightmare!

All Hallow’s Eve, Our Muddy Nightmare

Posted in Preludes and Nocturnes with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by bluefall8

As I mentioned last night, John and I will venture to Maumee, Ohio this evening for Dimensions in Darkness and Terror Town. If what I’ve read about Dimensions of Darkness is true then we will surely have a Halloween to remember — voices on the wind carry to me tales of frightening intensity cocooned within an old school approach. Terror Town has me excited as well, the minds behind the madness here never fail to whip up some new trick or outrageous animatronic. Oh, how the haunt season does delight with all of it’s twists and turns — this will be the fifth consecutive year that I’ve visited Mayor Worm Face’s twisted town — you have to be doing more than a couple of things right to possess that sort of draw.

In other news, I’m very proud and excited to announce that the Mud Puppets Halloween Special, titled Our Muddy Nightmare has been released! I burned the midnight oil tying up loose ends and eagerly await feedback. If you’re a reader of this blog and you aren’t familiar with the Mud Puppets, I’ll fill you in — my cousin and I produce a sketch comedy show on YouTube. We began shooting this past June and have continued ever since, Out Muddy Nightmare is our fifth episode. I welcome any and all readers of Horrorlust to check us out — oh yeah, we’re also running for President.

A Blustry Devil’s Night Stirs Memories

It is with great excitement that I can report that the Mud Puppets Halloween Special is nearly complete — I plan to post it before I drift off to dream land tonight.

In haunt related news, John and I were all set to go haunting tonight until we had a change of plans yesterday, a change that would cause us to skip the upstart Dimensions of Darkness and Terror Town in Maumee. As it were, the haunt fates were destined to intervene as another twist in plans will see us get there yet! Here’s the story — We had originally planned to hit Maumee’s twin terrors tonight and end the season at Darksyde Acres on Halloween, but plans changed and it looked as if the Monstrosities of Maumee would be lost — alas just today I discovered that Darksyde Acres will be open this weekend, and what’s more — Saturday is Adult’s Only!

So, we’ll spend Halloween in the Buckeye State — first with a stop at an exciting, new location and then a visit to an old favorite. Finally, we’ll stretch the haunt season further than we’ve ever stretched it before this Saturday with what’s destined to be a wild night at Darksyde Acres. During our first visit there last season we ogled half naked haunt hotties and confronted hyperactive clowns who begged us to slap their asses, and that was just a routine Friday night in early October! In my wildest haunt dreams I can only imagine what will go on here during an Adults Only Event!

After much editing of the Mud Puppets Halloween Special today, I raced over to Terror on the Boulevard, a home haunt in Lincoln Park. Unfortunately, there was nary a soul in sight and my heart sank a little — I was really hoping to pay it a visit this season. Perhaps the threat of the Frankenstorm kept haunters indoors tonight — let us hope that no such freak weather effects the remainder of the haunt season — for I must go haunting and the kiddies most partake in the magical tradition of Trick r’ Treating.

And what a great night for haunting it could have been, this weather puts me in mind of Devil’s Night 2009 when Jason, John, Richard and I braved the elements en route to Hell Block 13 in Wyandotte, Realm of Darkness in Pontiac, and finally a memorable stop at Haunted Farm of Terror in Lenox Township; three years later and Richard still loves to tell the story of how a massive skull nearly punched me square in the face while on the epic hayride at the latter!

Haunt Fiend, Indeed

My usual cohorts were out of town last night but I didn’t let that stop me from enjoying a little night of local haunting. I called up my incomparable friend Ted, known to some as Victor Severus. We swung by Haunt for Hunger in Allen Park and then the Scream Machine in Taylor. Earlier today my sister and I took my nephew to the Friendly Monster Event held by the Wyandotte Jaycees — he was particularly tickled by a toilet comically overflowing with mounds of defecation. As always, I’ll post full reviews. However, the remainder of this afternoon will be spent editing the Mud Puppets Halloween Special before settling in with the wife this evening to watch the latest episode of The Walking Dead.
