Remembering the Crazy 1976 TV Series MONSTER SQUAD!

In today’s TV landscape, horror fans are spoiled across all platforms when it comes to the type of programming they have to choose from.

Holiday Hell-Hordes Invade Universal Halloween Horror Nights’ KRAMPUS Maze!

Even before the Krampus Kraze swept the US, I was professing my love for the original Christmas demon, Santa’s “bad cop” partner who punishes naughty boys and girls in truly horrific ways.
