SPRING UPDATES

Well its been quite a while since we had updates in the news section here
But that does not mean a lot of cool fun stuff has been going on.
First off, we wanna apologize for not being able to make it out to
MaskFest this year. Looks like it was a great time and we hope to be
there next year.

First up we wanna mention a brand new Mask company devoted to
creating masks like the ones you grew up with.
Trick or Treat Studios is the brain child of Chris Zephro and it is
poised to blast away the competition with their new line of masks
designed by some of the best in the business. Please vist their
site at Trick or Treat Studios, and check out the Blog Section for
all kinds of cool behind the scenes photos and upcoming events.
Ormon loves his quality masks!

NEXT UP
THEEEE website devoted to the current wave of Horror Hosts, The Horror Host Graveyard
has just issued its second set of trading cards, and Ormon Grimsby is featured in this new set.
Get over to the official site by clicking the image below for tons of Horror Host fun.
Special thanks to Corpse Chris on this one, the curator of HHG.

 

horror host graveyard

 

And if that wasn't enough self promotion in a reach around kind of way,
Brain Maze has just issued a brand spanking new comic book all about Horror Hosts.
Put together with the help of Mr. Lobo and Dr. Sarcofiguy writing passages, this book is a fistfull of fun.
Follow Mr. Lobo on his adventure as he introduces some of todays horror hosts from around this nation
of ours and gets in to trouble along the way.

13 hosts

 

And finally we GOTTA mention the film by C.W. Pranther , Every Other Day is Halloween.
This is an amazing tribute to the much beloved Count Gore De Vol. The film features interviews with
the Count himself and others that have known him, which you would expect. But, what you might not
expect is all of the fantastic vintage footage from the 70's, 80's, and 90's. Even if you didn't grow up with
the Count, the film is a loving look at a time in history when most communities were connected by a
host of some sort. Its a fantastic trip down memory lane that will have you sniffing in to a tissue saying
"those were the days"

every other day is halloween

So you say to yourself, "you know I really like Ormon and all but where is the SCI FI". Well I got your cure for funny, right here. AMC has had a video blog show for the past year or so with their special host, Kevin Maher. And, if you have not checked it out, you don't know what your missing boy howdy!

Every week Kevin covers some aspect of Sci Fi movie-dom and pop culture in an incredibly humorous way. What AMC should do, is ditch what they got going on every Friday night and give Kevin his own show. I mean how many times can you watch Halloween 5 before you ask yourself, why do I punish myself. But, I digress.

Kevin's show on AMC's site is the funniest thing I have seen in a long long time, and besides, look at that face. How can you not fall in love with that?

Mr. Maher has his own blogspot site at Mykevin where you can check out some of the work he has been involved in and see clips from his weekly show on AMC.
