Some would say that, since Halloween has once again passed, it’s no longer the time of year for the creepies and the crawlies and the monsters what go bump in the night.  But if you ask me, it’s never too late nor too early for some supernatural hijinks, especially with our coverage of ‘Harrow County’ and it’s flaming skeletons, haints and goblins in the high grass.  For my money, I’m not frightened of a Frankenstein so much as I am hordes of wasps or swarms of insects or a vampire bat.  (Gilligan’s Island instilled in me an unrealistic fear of vampire bats, as well as quicksand.)  Everyone’s fears are different things, though, leading to today’s hainted query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is still utterly horrified by all the gross, squishy zombies in the B-17 sequence of ‘Heavy Metal’, asking: Which fictional thing that goes bump in the night is the most terrifying to you?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

  1. Someone kicked a large wasp hive on the ground when I was in the military training as a you guy. Let’s just say I’ve never run so fast for so long before or after that in my life.
