The horror of HOME ALONE!

This weekend I sat down for my yearly viewing of 1990's Christmas classic Home Alone.  While I've seen the film dozens of times since it's initial release, this time around something hit me.  This is a pretty demented film.  First and foremost we've got a number of cameos from actors who had (or eventually would) participate in some very beloved horror films.  Second, Buzz was clearly a Monster kid (more on that later.)  We have parents that forget their child as they go on a lavish vacation, a supposed serial killer living next door, and a child who essentially manages to torture two would-be criminals.

Okay, maybe I'm simply over analyzing the film thanks to some sorta' Christmas-time-dementia, but something creepy is happening at the McCallister house and I've got pictures to prove it!

Serial killer or misunderstood old man?  Before Home Alone actor Robert Blossom played the Ed Gein inspired Ezra Cobb in 1974's Deranged.

After being accused of witchcraft, a poor woman is burnt at the stake at the behest of a king.  One of the supposed witch's daughters (Helen; Barbara Steele) attempts to stop the execution but manages to get herself killed after fornicating with the blood thirsty leader.  The woman's youngest daughter (Lisabeth; Halina Zalewska) is taken away but thankfully spared.  Years later the King's son forces Lisabeth into a marriage she wants no part of and it's all downhill from there.

Five cool ornaments on this year's tree!

Halloween might be long gone but there's nothing stoppin' ya from letting horror seep into the Christmas season.  Today we're going to take a look at a handful of ornaments featuring zombies, monsters, and bounty hunters that happen to currently be hanging from my Christmas tree.

First up is my latest addition, Freddy In Space's Return of the Living Dead ornament!  Available for one short day this little collectible is a thing of beauty and currently my favorite ornament.  I'm sure this one will manage to hang around past the Holiday.

It's California, it's the 80's, and a poor girl has just agreed to sell her soul to the Devil.  Decades later a real estate agent named Leigh (Catalina Sandino Moreno) is attempting to sell the property that this young girl once called home.  The current owners happen seem oddly anxious to get rid of the place, could it have something to do with their missing now daughter?  Maybe the answers are wrapped up in that big wad of money the real estate agent found hidden in a dresser drawer.

Slaughter Hotel

Production Year: 1971
Release Date: 12/09/2014

Straying far from the crime films he was best known for, Fernando Di Leo took a stab at the Horror genre.  What we get is more sleaze than shock.  In Slaughter Hotel a number a nubile psychotic females are housed together in a gothic castle-turned sanitarium.  Some are suicidal, some are homicidal, most of them just seem sex-crazed.  Unfortunately for the group, there's a psychotic killer on the loose with a sick fixation on spilling blood.

Mutagen Man
I'm sure most of you are well aware of this character.  Easily one of the coolest toys of my childhood, Mutagen Man's torso is clear and hollow allowing kids to fill it with water.  Also included were bits of guts that could freely float around.
