Forrest J Ackerman Was Born This Day
When Famous Monsters of Filmland appeared on every magazine rack in every city and tiny town, Forrest J Ackerman proved that many of us weren't lonely freaks adrift in a backwoods ocean of bibles and baseball.

Famous Monsters of Filmland

We were everywhere! We just had to find each other, and we did! Comic, Horror, and SciFi conventions burst forth as people came from all over a city, a state, even the earth to attend.

Famous Monster Of Filmland 2

One fan magazine wasn't enough. There were too many fans and too much money to make. Eventually there were Starlog, Fangoria, and more!

Famous Monsters of Filmland

All of it born from the spark of mad passion that was Forrey Fandom!

HORROR WRITER'S PROMPT
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
It took us a while to catch onto the fact that Lyme disease was more that just an illness: it actually affected our mental state and behavior. Our personality, even character, changes under the influence of Lyme disease.

28 Days Later

Evidence is growing that the single celled Toxoplasma gondii (Toxoplasmosis disease) also directly affects our brain, in the same way it affects the brains of other mammals (rodents, felines, canines), by affecting our choices and behavior.

What all of these parasites have in common is how they control us. We think we are making our own choices, when really we lose all interest in self-preservation or reproduction, choosing only to create an environment that enhances the preservation and reproductive ability of the disease within us.

These types of parasites exist throughout the animal kingdom.

We are already aware of Wasp eggs that control the behavior of spiders, viruses that control the behavior of caterpillars (Baculovirus), turning them into Vampire-type life forms. and the Ophiocordycep fungus that controls the behavior of ants, turning them into a kind of zombie.

Arguably the worst of all, however, is probably the Entomophthora muscae fungus, for it's here where your nightmares begin and never end - not even in death.

Mind-controlling fungus makes male flies mate with dead, infected females

Dia de los Muertos
The centerpiece of this banner for Día de Muertos or Día de los Muertos
is the art of José Guadalupe Posada.

Purists say that Day of the Dead, which begins on November 1 and ends on November 2, is not a Mexican version of Halloween*. Yet Hallowmass (All Saint's Day), which also begins on Nov. 1, bears striking similarities to the Latin America version. Moreover no one can deny the obvious, that down through the years children and adults from both cultures celebrate with dressing up in costume and, depending on the state/cuidad, going door to door asking for dulce (candy). HALLOWEEN and DÍA de MUERTOS is no longer the somber Catholic Feast for the Dead the European churches created centuries ago.

33 Days of HALLOWEEN! Day 32

*Halloween comes from Hallowtide or Allhallowtide, which begins, not ends, on October 31.
