September 24 in Goth and Horror History

September 24, 1964 - The Munsters - TV Show - Premiered

A horror comedy beloved of millions. I missed out on this as a child (it would have been in reruns) due to my parents thinking it was "too weird." Sigh. I missed out on a lot!

September 23 in Goth and Horror History

September 23, 2005 - Corpse Bride - Movie - Released

While I was terribly disappointed by this movie (and surprisingly haven't watched it since I bought it on Blu-Ray ages ago) it still belongs in the goth movie canon. Not just by virtue of being a Tim Burton movie, but it definitely has the mood, look and feel that it should. I just found it quite boring..

September 22 in Goth and Horror History

September 22, 1995 - Se7en - Movie - Released

Not quite a horror movie, this dark film about serial killers is one of my favorites. Some scenes are too gross even for me. Kevin Spacey's performance was awesome, too.

September 19 in Goth and Horror History

September 19, 2003 - Underworld - Movie - Released

September 19, 2008 - Igor - Movie - Released

I had such high hopes for Igor, with my favorite actor ( John Cusack) doing the main voice. Soooo disappointing. Meanwhile, Underworld was pretty enjoyable, though I could do without the many sequels. I remember how amazing the Underworld trailer was - beautiful and really made me excited to see the film.

The Haunting DVD, on Amazon

September 18, 1963 - The Haunting - Movie - Released

September 18, 1964 - The Addams Family - TV Show - Premiered

September 18, 1987 - Hellraiser - Movie - Released

My parents weren't interested in watching The Addams Family when it came out, because it "looked too weird" and "was probably Satanic." (See what I had to grow up with? Sigh).

The Haunting, based on a Shirley Jackson novel, would be remade several times.

Meanwhile, Hellraiser was probably the scariest, grossest movie I had ever seen in the theater at the time. (Yes, I'm that ancient an eldergoth, I saw this in theaters). I was suitably impressed and very intrigued by the female cenobites.

September 9 in Goth and Horror History

September 9, 1954 - Jeffrey Combs - Actor - Born

September 9, 2005 - The Exorcism of Emily Rose - Movie - Released

The "Emily Rose" film mostly takes place in a courtroom - yawn.

You might have seen Jeffrey Combs in "The House on Haunted Hill," "Frightmare," or "From Beyond." But most likely you saw him in "Re-Animator" and its sequel.

If you're not an Eric Stoltz fan, I can see how you might have passed this up. But can you resist Christopher Walken as the angel Gabriel, and Viggo Mortenson (then not very famous) as Lucifer?
