Bits of Scary Wits


Greetings, ghoulish guests and welcome to my site blog! On this page you'll find links to the most recently updated pages on my site, as well as any special "bloglets" I add only on this page that may be of interest to you.

What's a bloglet, you ask? It's like a diary entry where I share either a scary site I ran across, a scary movie I just watched, a scary place I just visited or...well, you get the idea.

Tippi Hedren and other celebs at Spooky Empire's Screamfest Orlando Horror Convention

My "meet and greets" at the SpookyEmpire Convention in Orlando...

First, was Adrienne Barbeau. She was charming and accommodating - even letting me get my photo taken with her (free) after I missed the "official" (paid) photo session. She's down-to-earth and a beautiful lady. She definitely gets my vote for "Classiest Lady in Showbiz!"

Next was Linda Blair. I enjoyed hearing her story from the stage. She stressed we should all treat each other better which is certainly a good message. So you can imagine my disappointment when, during her fan photo sessions for which we paid $30 (and we stood in line an hour thereby missing other events since she...

[I'm only allowed to give my *opinion* here, not state any facts that could be viewed negatively, so...]

Let's just say it would have taken little effort to show the fans who waited all that time just some basic, garden variety courtesy. I was sad that I spent the money and time to get my pic taken with her. If that's "treating each other better", I'll pass.

And then there was Tippi Hedren. Again, it's really unfortunate I can only state my *opinion* here and not what happened, but that's the crazy legal system we have these days.

In my *opinion*, Ms. Hedren and her cohorts at her table had the worst attitudes I've ever encountered with anyone, celebrity or not, and that's saying a lot folks! Truly, it was an experience I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. I was like "Hello? Didn't you 3 travel here to meet fans and sell autographed pics?" Congrats on missing an easy sale and losing a fan.

In my opinion you, Miss Hedren, take the prize for "Absolute Worst Attitude in Showbiz"! Congrats!

Fortunately, my experience meeting Ms. Barbeau made up for a lot that day. :)

NetFlix & Your Halloween Horror Movie Marathon

If you're looking for a great way to get some titles to watch for your Halloween horror movie marathon, it's not too late to get a batch from NetFlix!

I love this service. It's easy to use and helps me find new scary titles I never knew about! Plus, each member is invited to provide a rating on the title once it's sent back in. This rating system is a great way to know whether a movie is worth watching or not.

Plus, there's no late fees! I love this aspect - I never have to worry about getting the video back to the local store by a set time anymore. I don't have to drive to town (which is a good thing since it's 20 miles). I just pick up my movies and drop 'em off in the mail!

If you haven't tried NetFlix yet, I highly recommend it. Trust me, once you do, you'll be hooked and never look back.

Live Scare Cams Page Updated!

Hello dear fright fans, I'm pleased to announce that the haunted house live feeds page has just been updated for Halloween 2007! I've just watched all four of the live feeds and they are all working great! The first three have the best video but no sound unfortunately (probably set up that way). The fourth one, Bates Motel, has sound but pretty dark and hard to see as much but the audio helps make up for it! Check 'em out!!!

Sorry I've been out of pocket for awhile...been busy editing my horror flick. But will be adding more here as I can before Halloween so keep checking back!

My New Horror Movie

Whew! Just wrapped up principal photography on my horror movie. :-) Now, on to editing, adding sound effects, pre-screening, etc.

Love it or hate it, you haven't seen anything like this one before. I'm confident of that! ;-)

If you prefer your scary movies to be more cerebral with build-up and "atmosphere" over the gore fare we've been seeing lately, you may just like this movie! If you enjoy supernatural horror like The Exorcist, The Omen, The Blair Witch Project, and Rosemary's Baby, you just might want to check this movie out when it premieres, so stay tuned!

To be among the first getting more info as it becomes available, be sure to sign up for my Fright Club ezine. That's the vehicle I'll be using to collect the emails of people interested in my upcoming spooky flick and keep them posted on the movie's progress.

And one lucky person who signs up after today's date (8/21/07) will win either a copy of the DVD or poster autographed by the cast (when they are released and sorry, no ETA as of yet...hey, I still have to get the footage edited after all. :-)
