"There is so much writing in English on Japanese cinema that can't be accepted at face value — not because the writers are careless, but because the differences in culture and language are just too intricate. When I see August Ragone's name on a piece of writing, it gives me permission to place my faith in it completely. Among Japanese fantasy film historians, he's the best working in English." —Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog

Frank S. Strayer's The Vampire Bat (1933)

Halloween 2014 is dedicated to beloved Horror Host, Bob Wilkins!

KTVU's "Creature Features" presentation on July 22, 1972!

"On the nineteenth day of Halloween, my true blood gave to me, nineteen bats flying, eighteen butcher chops, seventeen premonitions, sixteen bullets silver, fifteen limbs severed, fourteen Igors fluting, thirteen nightmares tormenting, twelve hunchbacks helping, eleven brains transplanting, ten ghouls feeding, nine yetis chilling, eight mummies crumbling, seven monsters growling, six feathered freaks, five undead things, four maniacs, three evil kisses, two fiendish hands, and an atomic voodoo zombie!"
