Saturday Frights: Rock n’ Roll Nightmare on Elm Street


Now readin’ that little title up there, you folks are thinking one of two things; 1. Jon Mikl Thor and Robert Englund sang a duet together, or 2. the ol’ Ouija Board Kid is going to be blastin’ yer ear holes with all of the top jamzzz from the various Freddy flicks. Well, the reality lies somewhere in the middle…

Daniel XIII

Daniel XIII: equally at home at a seance as he is behind the keyboard! Raised on a steady diet of Son of Satan comics, Kaiju flicks and Count Chocula, ol' XIII is a screenwriter, actor, and reviewer of fright flicks! What arcane knowledge lurks behind the preternatural eyes of the Ouija Board Kid?
