Q&A with Horror Movie host, Ghouleena

A lot of our younger generation didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the late night monster and sci-fi movies hosted by characters like Vampira, Zacherley, Elvira and the Ghoul. The retro horror host became to be almost a lost art, except for character like the prior mentioned Elvira, and legends such as Svengoolie keeping it alive... until recently.

There's been a resurgence in the horror host genre, with the power of the making it easier to be seen around the world. One of the newest stars of the scene is Detroit horror hostess, Ghouleena. Her debut on The Monster Channel broke records for the ever growing online network, and has been wowing audiences on the horror convention circuit with her spooky charm and vampy beauty, reminiscent of horror queens Vampira, Elvira, and even Morticia Addams! Ghouleena took the time out of her crazy schedule to chat with us, so as always, enjoy and share away...And support your local horror hosts!!!

TheSteveStrout- Where and when can the audience catch your show?
Ghouleena- You can catch the first air date of my show on, and shortly after they will go up on my youtube channel & website for free veiwing! I always post about it on all my social media - so as soon as I know my next air date, you can find it there!

Cool Projects #9

Since this should be the last 'Cool Projects' post before Halloween, I thought it fitting to keep things spooky to help get in the spirit by bringing you the 9th installment of 'Cool Projects'. Spread the word, and support these 'Cool Projects', as well as!

Blood and Gourd- Jenz Lund and D.H. Shultis
'Blood and Gourd' is an indie comic series from creators Jenz Lund and D.H. Shultis about a struggling farm thats taken over by killer pumpkins. This comic series combines brilliant, classic comic book style with some serious gore, making it perfect for any fan of  80s campy horror movies! If this series were to be made into a live action film, I think Tromo would be the perfect distribution studio.

Cool Projects #8

Take a look at these great projects that we think you'd be in to. Let us know about any great projects you think we should mention here in future "Cool Projects" posts, be it books, comics, movies, games, or anything that might appeal to our audience!!

Mech Cadet YuBoom Studios

Boom Studios presents 'Mech Cadet Yu' Vol. 1 Discover Now Edition, to be released in early 2018, alongside monthly issue #5. Vol. 1 collects the first 4 issues of the acclaimed story of Stanford Yu, who is recruited into the Mech Cadets. Once a year the The cadets are joined by giant robots to defend the planet from evil aliens called the Sharg. At the time of posting, I've yet to dig in to this series, but between the writing team and Miyazawa's art, very reminiscent of an anime style, I'm intrigued by this story of this boy and his robot buddy. 

This special edition, written by an amazing writing team of Grek Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa will only be available in comic shops, with a regular TPB edition being released later in the spring. The series has been so well recieved by readers, that  "Given the tremendous response to 'Mech Cadet Yu' from retailers, fans and press, we’ve decided to release a collection of the series much earlier than usual,” said Filip Sablik, President of Publishing and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. Be sure to keep an eye out for this book and series, and stay tuned to Boom Studios at for the latest info on 'Mech Cadet Yu' and the other great titles they have to offer.

Q&A With Author and Aerospace Engineer Andrew Rader

Are you into space exploration? Are your children into space exploration? If so, I have someone you should meet...

By chance, I connected via social media with aerospace engineer, Andrew Rader, who also happens to be an author. An author of childrens books. Not just your run of the mill kids books, but educational kids books. Mr. Rader uses his knowledge of space and science and brings us smart, yet entertaining books about exploration, suitable for the whole family. The first being 'Epic Space Adventure: Mars Rover Rescue'.

Cool Projects #7

Since its Halloween season, I find it only fitting to share some horror related stuff in the 'Cool Stuff' posts. 

Never Hike Alone: Friday the 13th Fanfilm- Womp Stomp Films
First and foremost is a great fanfilm paying tribute to one of the great iconic film series, in the history of the genre, Friday The 13th. The series featuring the hockey mask wearing Jason Vorhees, is quite possibly the most recognizable villain of all slasher films.

Cool Projects #6

Hey everyone, I feel I owe an explanation for my lack of posts here since Crypticon. Unfortunately, I've had a series of health issues stemming from a heart failure event a few years back. My life has been consumed by doctor visits, and even a recent stay in the hospital. Things are looking a lot better, so no need to worry. Sadly, the issues prevented me from posting anything here at This in turn has also prevented me to attend and cover any conventions due to financial issues rooting from the health issues and a lighter work load. That's basically the gist of things. If you miss seeing me around at shows, feel free to help us attend by contributing via the donation button on this site, and tell your local conventions that you want us there covering their show!

But anyways...lets get back into the swing of things and introduce ya to a few cool projects!

MORBID HEARTS- Susanne Lambdin
When I attended Crypticon last May, a few great creators submitted some stuff to possibly be given a shout out here at Morbid Hearts, by Susanne Lambdin, is one such project. I wouldn't really call it a project though, as Susan is an acclaimed author. She even penned an episode of Star Trek TNG.
