Welcome our latest & greatest from the man who brings you week to week interviews and film reports. We knew there was more horror out there than “just” fiction, so Joyhorror took the plunge into the Twilight zone to dig up what hides in the shadows. Call it our own version of Ghosthunters, but really it’s so much more. You can turn back now or face reality at its darkest hour.
Greetings and Salutations,
In the earthly world my name is Mike Joy and horror consumes me. South Jersey is where I dwell, just a few minutes from Philadelphia. You may recognize me better without my human face as I am Joyhorror! I am a dedicated soldier for HorrorNews.Net armed only with a computer and a pick axe. Be warned, Bone Digger has already had me do unspeakable things!
For all of you new to the cause… you’ve just signed away your soul to horror and there is no turning back.
This is the first edition of Unexplained Confidential, so if you are reading this the addiction has already started. I want to briefly go over some of the things that we’ll be covering and uncovering in future installments. The air is electric with paranormal activity and the interest is at an all time high with television shows like Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State.
No, I’m not going to be reviewing those shows. I want to get closer than the TV screen will allow. I’ve made several contacts already in the field and I’m looking to make contact with more, whether they are the living or the dead.
It’s this time of year when you can stand outside at night and look up into
the darkness and everything seems so much clearer. The stars are vibrant
and if you look closely you can see the craters on the moon. You really
get a sense of how small you really are while looking up into space. I’ve
often wondered if someone is looking down at me? It’s ignorant to think
that we are the only intelligent life in the universe. As good as our
technology is, our telescopes can only see so far. I want to know what is
out there beyond where we can see? I will be your Fox Mulder but I’ve yet
to hear from The Lone Gunmen, so please contact me immediately at
Next week, I’m going to be traveling to the coolest little toy shop on the
East Coast and taking some pictures to share with all of you. Lots of rare
and vintage horror merchandise! You’ll see.
I want to bring to your attention a website that I enjoy and you really
don’t hear a lot of people talking about it. WWW.HULU.COM currently has
full episodes of your favorite genre programs like Night Gallery, Outer
Limits, Alfred Hitchcock presents, Ghost Hunters, and Fringe! They also
have complete horror movies like The Car, Near Dark, Horror Express, The
Thing, The Island of Dr. Moreau, 28 Days Later, and Night of the Living
Dead. It’s free but there are commercials.
I thank you for reading this little introduction, and remember if you have a
ghost in your attic, a monster under your bed, an ufo in your sky, a bigfoot
in your backyard, a poltergeist in you closet, or anything that just can’t
be explained, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Now, I’m going to finish mopping up all this blood in my bathroom. Damn Moondogs! Don’t forget to check out The Joyhorror Interview Collection over in our Interview area.
I’ve done interviews with Dru Brown, Laura Bach, Bianca Barnett, Michael Alfieri, Steven Arvanites, and Bill Zebub so far. I have a great interview with Tom Holland (5 or Die) that I just did and it should be posted in the next day or two.
Later F’N’ Later,
