Our Muddier Nightmare at the Summit of Horror Month

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2013 by bluefall8

The month of October has once again been a mile-a-minute thrill ride filled with too many sleepless nights. We hit the haunts hard (and we’re not done yet) but its also been a huge month for the Mud Puppets. Ryan and I embarked on a bold concept entitled Horror Month — wherein everything we produced throughout October was both humorous and horrifying.

This all came about due to the resounding success of Our Muddy Nightmare, our 2012 Halloween Special. This year we followed that up with a sequel, Our Muddier Nightmare. I’m very proud of everything we produced during Horror Month and I hope all you continue to follow the Mud Puppets long after the candle inside the last jack-o’-lantern has been snuffed out.

I’ll invite you once more to check out the Mud Puppets on YouTube and subscribe; the Halloween Specials are particularly close to my heart and I encourage all to share it with your friends, family, and fellow bloggers.

Our Muddy Nightmare was done in the spirit of a horror anthology with individual sketches tied into the overarching story.

Local Haunts a Welcome Old Hand

Another beautiful Friday evening in October is soon to descend upon us and the distinct scent of fun and fright is in the air. I do have a prior obligation to attend first, but once that has concluded I’ll don the old hat and set out into the black night. I’ll be staying close to home tonight, hitting some combination of Realm of Haunted Minds in Romulus, The Funeral Home in Inkster, or The Scream Machine at it’s new location in Taylor.

For those keeping count — I have yet to post my reviews from last Friday’s visits to Slaughter House in Fowlerville and Terrorfied Forest and Manor in Pinckey. Patience kiddies, patience. A complete review of Slaughter House will be posted tomorrow; Terrorfied Forest and Manor will follow shorty thereafter.
