Halloween III: Season of the Witch may not feature the iconic Michael Myers but it did introduce a generation of impressionable youths to the hypnotic tune of the Silver Shamrock commercial. As a child I was quite horrified by the images of those masks that rotted the heads of countless unsuspecting kids.

HORRORLUST RADIO: EPISODE 015

SHOW NOTES

No creepier actors could’ve been cast for the parts of Isaac and Malachai; John Franklin and Courtney Gains’ respective portrayals of violent, child zealots provided serious nightmare fuel when I was a child. To this day I find their mannerisms unsettling and disturbing.

Wrestler, home haunter and haunted attraction enthusiast Mike Marvel serves as co-host for episode #003 of Horrorlust Radio.

In the third episode of Horrorlust Radio, Mike and I discuss the tradition of home haunting in all its various forms and then dig into the pros and cons of multi-attraction venues.

This episode also features the second installment of Lost to Time, a segment that highlights haunts now departed; you’ll also hear the birth of a new segment, Hosts & Hotties where we pay respect to icons of the industry from horror hosts to scream queens and everybody in between. The luscious Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is our inaugural honoree.

Mike and I also banter about the quality of haunted attractions during the month of September and even delve briefly into the crossover elements of professional wrestling and the haunted attraction industry.
