This is megatone230 from Minnesota. I’ve been an avid follower of your blog since 2007. I love your site and it’s always a great source of inspiration while doing my horror themed collecting and creating artwork. I’ve even submitted a few Traumafessions…hearing about ‘Carrie‘ out on the playground and ‘Siskel & Ebert‘ slasher movie special. I also participated in the send in your own photo Halloween parade.
I would like to bring to your attention my new etsy store called Mama Minutia. I sell horror themed pop art, novelties, and gifts. Specializing in candles, buttons, wall hangings and more. I also do custom pieces by special request. Here’s the LINK if you would like to take a look around at the goodies in Mama’s attic!
I have been interested in horror since I was around 3-5 years old after seeing Bigfoot and Sea Monster documentaries on the TV show ‘In Search Of….’Then in 3rd grade I officially saw my first entire horror film ‘Piranha‘ when it showed on TV… I was hooked. In 5th grade I was completely traumatized after seeing ‘The Shining‘ for the first time when it aired on national television… I begged my family to let us watch… half way through I begged them to shut it off, but they wouldn’t… hahaha
Then in 6th grade I had the ultimate crash course in all things horror with my first ever R-rated movie theater viewing experience ‘Terror in the Aisles‘, the amazing compilation narrated by Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen. Over the following years I would rent every horror title from the local video shops and scan the HBO and Cinemax schedules for anything horror themed.
