Terror from Beyond the Daves Rondo Arrives!

img_1826

It was a grueling day at work, Thursday, with a day spent at a company meeting where the dreaded words, “We’re going to be doing some restructuring” came into play. While most of my co-workers went into a panic, I chose to remain calm and optimistic. This is a definite year for “change” so far as my life is concerned but, rather than look it as a challenge I am choosing to see these upheavals as opportunities to grow and reach new heights. Needless to say, I can’t describe how happy I was when I came home and saw a box had arrived with “Rondo Awards” listed in the return address.

A Day at the Rondo Awards! By J.D. Feigelson!

TERROR FROM BEYOND THE DAVES is bursting with pride in welcoming our dear friend, and writer of one of our favorite films, DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW, J.D. Feigelson as a guest writer on our site. Feigelson, aside from being highly respected in the industry, has been one of the most generous celebrities to us Daves and honored us even further by accepting the Rondo Award on our behalves at a recent ceremony. It turns out that we were in good company as he would also be chosen to accept awards on behalf of some rather noteworthy subjects…

Shock Theater Horror Host Dr. Ghoulman Rises Again!

img565Texas “Shock Theater” Host – Dr. Ghoulman, rises once more!

One of the most unusual and wonderful things happened to us Daves at the last Horrorhound Weekend in Ohio. It started  that opening night while we were perusing the main convention hall, ogling the unique items that the dealers had for sale while dodging fellow guests – many dressed as blood-soaked killers. Somehow, in the midst of all this pandemonium, my eyes focused on our dear friend, J.D. Feigelson. Feigelson, as our readers should at this time be well-versed, is the talented writer of one of my absolute FAVORITE films – DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARCROW.  Now if you’re new to this site, and haven’t caught the numerous posts we’ve done both on Feigelson or that movie gem, we urge you to go back and do so. Feigelson was, and always will be, one of the nicest celebrities out there and one we are proud to also call “friend.” As before, he was all smiles and a genuine pleasure to talk to. This time, however, that signature smile appeared to have maniacal overtones as, unbeknownst to us, he was harboring a bit of a surprise…

Thankful Beyond the Daves

th

Last year at Thanksgiving we decided to feature a post dedicated to showing our appreciation to those who helped us out in ways that went above and beyond the call of duty (as seen HERE).  This past year has been even more amazing as we saw our young blog break 100,000 hits with over 20,000 last month alone. That’s not too bad for a private blog that scarcely advertises outside of Facebook. It’s been a humbling experience for two guys who, after spending most of our lives standing in the shadows, finally found our own voices. The feedback and growing readership has been incredible and, above all, we thank YOU the readers. There are a LOT of blogs and websites out there and for you to not only take time out of your busy lives to visit, but come back and see us again is appreciated more than mere words can convey. Some of the folks from our last list will be back on this one, but we are really happy to feature the ones we just met this past year and who generously showed their support! So, without further adieu…

Dark Night of the Scarecrow at the Fright Night Film Festival

dnots

It’s been hard for me keeping the details of THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW reunion (which took place last July at the FRIGHT NIGHT FILM FESTIVAL in Kentucky) quiet this long, but I just had to wait for the right moment. With the Halloween season now firmly at hand and the anticipated release of the film on blu-ray THIS week, at last the stars are in perfect alignment for the story to finally be told!

“Dark Night of the Scarecrow” – The Soundtrack!

Shortly after the 4th of July, I stopped over at our local TARGET store and was annoyed to see that they’d already begun their “Back to School” sales. Although I understand the motivation of businesses for engaging in this long-standing practice of “pushing the holidays,” it still doesn’t prevent me from routinely rolling my eyes and getting irked by it. “Back to School” in July? Sheesh, let the poor kids enjoy their summer!

Behind the large bins of notebooks, pens, and Elmer’s Glue (all supplies that will be as scarce as water in a desert a few short weeks from now) was a few items indicating yet another holiday was in the department store wings. Unlike the advent of a new school year or even Christmas, however, I greeted this occasion more as a welcomed friend along with the knowledge that a monster & horror fan’s favorite season is just around the corner.If you are reading this blog, its a good bet that you will agree that Halloween is one of the BEST holidays along with all the wonderful Fall festivities associated with it!
