It’s that time of the year, when Coloradians come out of the nooks and crannies to join for the annual Manitou springs coffin Race. Horrornews.net was there to capture a bit of the festivities and show ya that Colorado knows how to party for Halloween.

Monster Mania – 2009

Monster Mania 2009 Event Show Pictures 10

Now imagine the house next to it is doing the same thing except it is celebrating Gene Roddenberry’s birthday. The next one down is sponsored by Nintendo, and so on.

My Year in Horror – 2008 Retrospect



The passing of another year can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. The optimists feel like it’s an annual clean slate. Take all the missteps of the previous 365 days, learn from them and move on to the dawn of a new day. The grumpier of us may feel more like “Hey look…this just means I’m one year closer to being an old fart. It’s the dead of winter … Continue reading
