October has arrived – the most wonderful time of the year.
There is a nip in the air, the leaves are changing and the smell of pumpkin pie surrounds us. It’s time to wear flannel as you walk a corn maze then curl up by a fire as the sun goes down early. A time to eat caramel apples, drink apple cider, and…well anything apple related really. And the gourds – my god, so many gourds.
Also, it is a time for horror. A time for a good scare. You have to love a month that ends with a celebration of death and the macabre.
As you can tell we are a big fan of October here at DaddyElk Productions and Halloween in general. Halloween of course is the greatest of all the holidays. Yes, I said it the greatest – even better than that one in December that everyone bangs on about. How can you compare presents under a tree to the joy of bags of candy distributed by strangers? The proliferation of skeletons and ghosts, witches and black cats, undead monsters and shapeshifting creatures are way better than a fat man in a red suit. What other time of year is it socially acceptable to dress as your favorite fictional character (or sexy variation thereof) and parade around the streets on your way to a haunted house run by drunk high school students with a strobe light.
It truly is a time of wonder – god bless us everyone.
So to celebrate our favorite time of the year the sites in the DaddyElk family will be providing a plethora classic horror movie reviews, Halloween related nostalgia and other related creepy crawly odds and ends.
A rough breakdown of what to expect:
Tachyon Emissions: there will be posts on the Universal Classic Monsters twice weekly throughout the month.
Paul Matthew Carr: Here we will be diving into nostalgia; old TV shows and memories of Halloweens past.
David Hicks: David will be providing one of his long, deep dives into memory and family.
Nexus of All Realities: A Podcast about a monster. Steady as she goes here.
The Collected Edition: Halloween themed episode at the end of the month
And much more. Also in addition to October/Halloween items there will be new Delta Redux articles and other features you typically see on the DEP network.
So we here at DaddyElk Productions are very excited to share our thoughts and feelings on a really fun time of year. Hope you come back to check it out.
