Updates-Hauntcast Magazine? Maybe

Hi, All. There are some new Hauntcast updates I feel compelled to share, because things are really looking better and better.

I realize some of you are sort of put off by all the Hauntcast stuff that's been going on, so I apologize to those who are in that camp. It'll all blow over soon, one way or the other, and things will go back to whatever passes for normal around here.

First up: Resurrect Hauntcast banners. Gary B and Dminor were kind enough to make banners for folks to put in their signatures, on their blogs, etc. If you feel moved to do so, go right ahead. Just link it to the Hauntcast Subscribe page.
There's a new sidebar banner available, too.

Grimlock has stepped forward and volunteered to create Hauntcast, The Magazine, with prop how-tos, horror reviews, and other yummilicious haunted goodness in old-school papery magazine form. Here's the latest updated list of discounts, plus the word is that if our goal is met, there will be a raffle, prizes listed below. 
Can Hauntcast be resurrected? Can you re-animate the Scream Team? There is a fan based movement underway to bring Hauntcast back from the nether-realm. This is the last and only chance for Hauntcast to live again. If 250 fans subscribe for $100 Hauntcast will be back on the air in April. That’s less than a movie ticket once a month. The haunt industries best vendors have stepped up to donate thousands of dollars worth of discounts as well as spooktacular prizes if 250 subscriptions are reached by 3/8/12.

and more to come!
THIS JUST IN: The Undertaker just offered an across the board 20% discount to all Hauntcast subscibers on his Haunted Hot Sauce, the only hot sauce that comes in its own, hand-made cedar coffin! 

AND: a new raffle prize from Juneau Studios:

Yes, the Lizzy Borden Mirror, a $2500 value. Two feet tall by fifteen inches wide, it comes with four DVDs: Blood Writing, Clown Changing Portrait, Poltergeist Portrait and Lizzie Borden. Each subscriber has not one, but two chances at winning this amazing prize!

As if that were not enough, Allen Hopps of Stiltbeast Studios has officially offered to do the prop segment to complete the Scream Team and take on the prop guy's red shirt. Brave man!

With all the discounts and offers, your subscription more than pays for itself. And if we, by chance, hit 350 subscribers, the cost of the subscription goes down to $75, and the difference will be refunded to everyone.

Lastly, Chris Baker's last word on this whole thing on YouTube.

If you are one of those people who loves to get your monthly dose of haunting via podcast, you'll know that the Hallowe'en and haunt podcasting field is starting to look pretty desolate these days. Rue Morgue is officially gone, unfortunately, and RFR is unable to consistently produce shows due to health issues. Hauntcast has the experience and the passion to bring you the best season, yet, or, die forever. Whatever.

Lastly, a random picture I took at my local Hallmark store while searching for Valentine's joy for Mr. ShellHawk. If you actually read down this far, you deserve it!
I posted it to my Facebook page, addressed to all trolls and haters. I'm still working on that whole "refraining from commenting thing." It's not really a comment though, right? It's just a sign.


  1. tombstone up. thanks for the updates on this.

    about the sign- it amuses me that Alec Guinness reportedly hated that movie so much, he suggested his own death just to make his involvement stop. i love that film, yet totally see his point. he called it fairytale rubbish. LOL

    can you imagine? he was olivier's fool, for the love of all that is holy!

  2. So cool! Thanks for the banner info... definitely going to post that on my blog!!!
