Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We’re glad that you’ve decided to make the Tavern of Terror one of your stops on your bar hopping today! I’m half Irish myself; my mother’s maiden name was Donnelly, and you don’t get more Irish than that. Plus I married a redhead. I’ve never celebrated St. Patrick’s Day too heavily (I don’t love a parade), but I do plan to do some serious drinkin’ in the Tavern tonight and probably watch some green-themed horror schlock! We hope you also get in some quality time with the Leprechaun series today and maybe even revisit the Silver Shamrock Novelty warehouse even if it isn’t Halloween yet (I’ve always wondered how Cochran and his crew might celebrate St. Patty’s day).

Anyway, we’ve got a lot of genre cabbage for ya’ to chew on here, so let’s get the pot boilin’. May the cat eat you and may the devil eat your cat (and other Irish sayings that I don’t totally understand).

YEAR-END ROUND-UP: THE BEST AND WORST HORRORS OF 2012

This Sunday, we’re putting the final nails in the coffin of 2012 by doing the Tavern of Terror’s very first year end roundup. So, simply enough, we’re picking out what we liked best for this year in horror as well as what we thought were the most noxious of runny dumps.

This isn’t the easiest thing for an old soul like me to do, by the way. While I am a hardcore horrorhound, I am also as old school as Archie Bunker. I prefer the entertainment of yesterday and admittedly pass on watching most of today’s mainstream schlock. There are also some that I simply haven’t gotten around to yet, seeing how I am employed and all. But I have delved in just enough to be a blowhard with my own opinions as any blogger should.

So let’s start our look back on 2012, the year that was supposed to end it all but of course didn’t. (Thanks for nothing, Mayans).

NINE CHRISTMAS HORROR MOVIES WE’D LIKE TO SEE, Part III

Posted on Dec 23, 2012 in Christmas, Horror for the Holidays, Lists & Countdowns | 0 comments

Okay, so here’s the scoop, kids.

We had intended to do twelve horror posters and plots for this holiday season, but time really got away from us. As it turns out, Christmas is a very busy and stressful time. Who knew?

For time reasons we decided to shorten this to Nine from the original Twelve. But we went with the best ideas we had! And besides, you just know we’ll be back with more next year, given how popular these posters have been. Make sure to check out Parts I and II if you haven’t already!

TWELVE CHRISTMAS HORROR MOVIES WE’D LIKE TO SEE, Part I

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Christmas, Horror for the Holidays, Lists & Countdowns | 4 comments

To celebrate the twelve days of Christmas, we decided to do something unique here at Tavern of Terror, something we thought would make a great gift for all of our rad followers.

One of the reasons my wife and I decided to start doing this webpage was to have something fun to collaborate on. She’s a skilled graphic designer and artist, and I’m a writer and a horror fanatic (who built his own horror-themed bar in their house). Together, we made this webpage and we’ve been lovin’ it.

So now, combining my insane movie ideas with the wife’s graphic design skills, Tavern of Terror presents Twelve Christmas Horror Movies We’d Like To See, featuring our own poster and synopsis creations. We will be posting three movies per post over the span of four posts between now and Christmas. So keep checking in for more and have a happy horrorday!
