The Projectionist’s Sinister Tales Of Terror Episode 07 (The Drain)

Hello, Dear Listeners! Does the way life treat you outside of the Retroist Vault have a similar feeling to circling The Drain?

Heh, heh.

Then I ask you to join me down here in the Vault for a small break from all of that. That heavy burden that is obviously such a drain?

Give me the chance to regale you again with some appropriately gruesome short stories from my tome of terror. Perhaps when I am finished with you, er, I mean the tale today. Why you might even leave here…and find yourself GRATE-ful?

Now then dim those infernal electrical lights and lean in closer to the glow of your radio. As I begin the seventh broadcast of Sinister Tales of Terror with The Drain.

The Projectionist’s Sinister Tales of Terror Ep. 06 (Night Terrors)

Hello there, dear listeners. It has come time once more to venture down into the Vault for one of my Sinister Tales of Terror! With Night Terrors our offering this week I was bade not to deviate from the author’s story. One that I think you will in fact find to be rather short. However I aim to please not only the listeners but our loyal supporters of the radio show…wherever they may be.

Night Terrors

My radio broadcasts reach rather far some say!

This story was submitted by Chuck Katmis. Night Terrors is the epitome of a tale of terror that is short but sweet. It wastes no time in getting to the dripping meat of the subject matter. This is not a story that is set in Haddonfield, but instead could happen anywhere. Even of course in your own town. Why it might be happening to someone you know right this minute, eh?

Now at the time of this broadcast it was feared that my radio show would be too terrifying for The Retroist. Which is why of course that Victor continues to slap on that ridiculous warning. You will in fact hear my announcement that the show wouldn’t be carried on this network.

Thankfully clearer minds than Sage’s stepped in and deemed his fears pointless, eh? So I want to thank the Retroist himself for making that all clear. Heh, heh.

In addition I believe that the Retroist himself took matter into his own hands and you can find my broadcasts on iTunes and Google Play.

Now I beg of you to extinguish your electric lights. Lean in closer to the soothing glow of your personal radio. As I begin this broadcast for my Sinister Tales of Terror…

The Projectionist’s Sinister Tales of Terror Ep. 05 (Toenails)

Hello there, dear listeners. It has come time once more to venture down into the Vault for one of my Sinister Tales of Terror! I have chosen a story this week for your listening pleasure for all of you animal lovers. An offering that might make you think twice when you next hear the sound of Toenails on the floor…

Toenails

Yes. There is nothing to see here…in the light!

This story comes to us from the twisted mind of Lynne Lowery. As a matter of fact it takes place in my old hometown of Haddonfield. Furthermore it caused quite a commotion once the law enforcement officials were called in to investigate the incident.

However you should set a little time for yourself before enjoying my latest broadcast. It is nearly 15 minutes in length. I particularly enjoy our longer offerings but in contrast I realize that time is such a precious commodity. So you can be sure there will be shorter episodes in the near future.

Now at the time of this broadcast it was feared that my radio show would be too terrifying for The Retroist. Which is why of course that Victor continues to slap that ridiculous warning. You will in fact hear my announcement that the show wouldn’t be carried on this network.

Thankfully clearer minds than Sage’s stepped in and deemed his fears pointless, eh? So I want to thank the Retroist himself for making that all clear. It frees me from that particular concern so I might focus on more important matters. Heh, heh.

In addition I believe that the Retroist himself took matter into his own hands and you can find my broadcasts on iTunes and Google Play.
Now I beg of you to extinguish your electric lights. Lean in closer to the soothing glow of your personal radio. As I begin this broadcast for my Sinister Tales of Terror…

American Scary

Netflix’s suggestions are usually nothing more than jokes. Yes, I watched Primeval, but in what universe does that mean I might also like Downton Abbey? But Netflix finally made good last night. It suggested a little documentary called American Scary.

American Scary is about our country’s rich tradition of horror hosts. It covers such VHF luminaries as Ghoulardi, Svengoolie, Vampira, Elvira, and Zacherley. Not only are these hosts and more in the documentary, but there are also interviews with Leonard Maltin (who appeared to be sitting in the same chair he inhabited in The Sci-Fi Boys), Tim Conway, Tom Savini, Patricia Tallman (drool), Joel Hodgson, Commander USA (out of uniform, unfortunately), and Neil Gaiman. Gaiman was even shown hosting a short Halloween special of his own. Big Chuck and Lil’ John also make an appearance, and there is a discussion on the abnormal abundance of Ohio horror hosts that I (being a Columbus boy) greatly appreciated. I imagined that Claymation Werewolf and Drahken would like that part as well. The only problem? They didn’t mention my two favorite hosts: Fritz the Nite Owl (who probably would have fit into their “Normal Guys” category) and Moana (an Elvira rip-off from Pittsburg we had for about a year on WTTE). How could they have missed them when they spent so much time on Ohio? I have no clue.

If you can forgive that oversight, you can see American Scary on either Netflix Instant, Hulu, or YouTube.
