In this episode #006 of Horrorlust Radio, I’m joined by the Cik-Boy, Jason Cikalo. Cikalo and I discuss horror in literature and then detail our thoughts and experiences with The CikNis — our garage haunt.

Also in this episode of Horrorlust Radio is another installment of original segments, Serious Celluloid and Hosts & Hotties. In this edition of Serious Celluloid, I recommend a 2010 released entitled The Shrine and then in Hosts & Hotties we pay respect to a Detroit horror icon, Sir Graves Ghastly.

We also discuss our most recent haunted house visits and speculate which attractions we’ll visit to close out the 2014 haunt season. I also answer a listener question regarding crowd control at haunted attractions.

I’m actively seeking sponsors for Horrorlust Radio, if you own or operate a haunted attraction or are otherwise involved or connected to the haunt industry and are interested in such an opportunity you can contact me at the following email address: horrorlust@bluestarproductions.net

HORRORLUST RADIO: EPISODE 006

This episode of Horrorlust Radio does contain explicit content; young ones cover your ears!

SHOW NOTES

Below is a promotional poster for the 2010 film, The Shrine. This is an under-the-radar horror film with a strong plot, solid acting and one unsettling twist — I believe it to be a worthy entry in our Serious Celluloid collection.

Detroit mainstay and horror icon, Sir Graves Ghastly, pictured below. The actor who portrayed Sir Graves Ghastly was named Lawson Deming; he passed on April 24, 2007 — just one day after his 94th birthday.

My brother, Jason, returned to co-host once more in episode #002 of Horrorlust Radio.

I’m actively seeking sponsors for Horrorlust Radio, if you own or operate a haunted attraction or are otherwise involved or connected to the haunt industry and are interested in such an opportunity you can contact me at the following email address: horrorlust@bluestarproductions.net

In the second episode of Horrorlust Radio, Jason and I discuss the evolution of horror in video games and also delve into the sometimes blurred line between extreme haunted houses and abduction simulations.

This episode also features the debut of two new segments — Nightmare Fuel and Serious Celluloid. In Nightmare Fuel, Jason recounts a personal account of an unidentified flying object he once witnessed in August 1997 and in Serious Celluloid I recommend a horror film to listeners.

We also discuss some of our earliest visits to haunted attractions — most notably a legendary trip through Lincoln Park’s Anxiety Alley and and eye-popping jaunt through a Monroe Jaycees haunted house during the mid-90’s.

More show notes and additional description information to follow.
