“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” – Salem’s Lot
September 1st is the meteorological end of summer, the beacon that heralds the arrival of my autumnal joy. While I enjoy summer, I’m never sad to see the jungle heat and humidity make an overdue departure. The impending Autumn comes with all the best of changes. Seasonal beers take up generous amounts of shelf space at our favorite liquor stores. New television returns, proving again that we live in another golden age of entertainment. If you can’t find any shows you enjoy, I promise you’re not looking hard enough. Music changes as well, providing a more somber tone for the trees to shed their leaves. Hoodie weather, man, I could go on and on.
As we get closer to Halloween, you’ll notice more activity here at Left Hand Horror. We’ll be reviewing all the new theatrical horror movies, offering at least one current or retro horror film review each day in October, we call in “Insane in the Samhain”, and realize that doesn’t rhyme. Look for interviews with Fatal Pictures, James Balsamo, Nikki Alonso (Crawl, Bitch, Crawl), and a host of up and coming horror purveyors. I’ll be reporting back from my annual trip to the very haunted Bobby Mackey’s Music World. I’m fortunate enough to know several lovely women that I’ll be featuring in a cemetery pictorial. You have to appreciate girls who love horror and Halloween enough to volunteer for something sure to scar them for several years.
Left Hand Horror will feature daily horror news and articles. We’ll be working overtime to keep you caught up on recaps for American Horror Story: Coven, Supernatural, and The Walking Dead. Will new shows like the rebooted for TV ‘Sleepy Hallow‘ be worth a crap? Stop in and find out. Looking for seasonal beer reviews? You can find them here. I’m sure I’ll have some leftover footage or interviews from ScareFest’s Black Carpet event I’m covering September 13-15. My only goal is to get someone like Kane Hodder or Malcolm McDowell to shoot some promos for me. Hopefully I won’t channel Mary Margaret at first glimpse of Ken Foree. Deep breaths.
If you just like pretty pictures of trees. we’ll have those as well. Lexington, Kentucky and its surrounding communities overflow with Autumn beauty. I’m sure you can count on a couple of just straight up ridiculous articles as well. Enjoy your September, kids!
