I know that for many horror fans, spooky season is a year-round event. That being said, it is finally the time of year that we can engage in Halloween activities without getting those weird looks from the neighbors.

Halloween season is for more than just movies and decorations though. It is also a time for harvest and cooking. So, we went ahead and created a collection of the best Halloween themed baking shows for you to sink your teeth into this season.

Who doesn’t love a good cookie? If it’s also a zombie themed cookie, then we got something special. Halloween Cookie Challenge is a pretty straight forward concept. Contestants compete to bake the most outstanding spooky cookie anyone has ever seen.

This baking challenge offers up a [prize of $10,000 to the respective winner each season. Hosts chef Jet Tila and baker Rosanna Pansino act as the gatekeepers of this graveyard, allowing only the best baker to proceed through the gates. If snack desserts are more your thing for Halloween, check out Halloween Cookie Challenge.

Now, this show isn’t just about Halloween baking. The goal of this competition is to make the most impressive Halloween themed display imaginable. So, if you want to watch a show with a little bit of everything, watch Halloween Wars.

What if you are looking for something a little closer to The Great British Baking Show, but spookier? Look no further than Halloween Baking Championship on The Food Network.

This show pits twelve bakers against one another to decide who can make not only the scariest but also the tastiest Halloween themed baked goods. Mixing some campiness with serious competition makes this show stand out as a great Halloween tradition.

The Curious Creations of Christine McConnel

Now for my absolute favorite craft host of all time. Christine McConnell is what would happen if Elvira and Martha Stewart had a love child and left her in a haunted mansion. The outcome is amazing.

The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell is an original and heartfelt show about adding some whimsey into our lives using the spirit of Halloween. If you want to know more, go check it out on Netflix. Unfortunately, this show was only filmed for a single season, but it will live on forever in all of our little black hearts.

Watch The New ‘Wizard of Oz’ Horror Film ‘Gale’ on New Streaming App



There is a new horror movie streaming app available on your digital devices. It’s called Chilling and it’s currently streaming Gale Stay Away From Oz. This movie got some buzz last year when a full-length trailer was released, since then, it hasn’t really been promoted. But recently it has become available to watch. Well, sort of.

The movie streaming on Chilling is actually a short. The studio says it’s a precursor for an upcoming full-length movie.

Here’s what they had to say on YouTube:

“The short film is now live [on Chilling app], and serves as the setup for the feature film that will be going in to production soon.

Long gone are the days of emerald cities and yellow brick roads, the enchanting tale of the Wizard of Oz takes a haunting turn. Dorothy Gale (Karen Swan), now in her twilight years, bears the scars of a lifetime entangled with the paranormal forces of a mystical realm. These otherworldly encounters have left her shattered, and the echoes of her experiences now reverberate through her sole living relative, Emily (Chloë Culligan Crump). As Emily is beckoned to confront the unresolved matters of this bone-chilling Oz, a terrifying journey awaits her.”

One of the most incredible things we took away from the teaser other than how moody and creepy it is, was how much lead actress Chloë Culligan Crump resembles Judy Garland, the original Dorothy from the 1939 original.

It’s about time someone continued this story. There are definitely elements of horror in Frank L. Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz book series. There have been attempts to reboot it, but nothing has ever quite captured its eerie but jovial qualities.

In 2013 we got the Sam Raimi directed Oz the Great and Powerful  but it didn’t do much. And then there was the series Tin Man that actually got some good reviews. Of course, there is our favorite, 1985’s Return to Oz starring a young Fairuza Balk who would later become a teen witch in the hit 1996 movie The Craft.

If you want to watch Gale just go to the Chiller website and sign up (we are not affiliated or sponsored by them). It is as low as $3.99 a month, but they are offering a free seven-day trial.

‘Living For The Dead’ Trailer Scares Up Queer Paranormal Pride



With all the ghost-hunting reality content available from Discovery+, Hulu is stepping up the genre with their take called Living for the Dead in which a team of five queer paranormal investigators travel to different haunted locations to raise the spirits of both the living and the dead.

The show at first appears to be a run-of-the-mill ghost-hunting procedural, but the twist is that these researchers also help the living cope with their hauntings. That kind of tracks since this show is from the same producers as Netflix’s Queer Eye, another reality show where the hosts help people find peace and acceptance.

But what this show has that Queer Eye doesn’t is an “A” list celebrity producer. Kristen Stewart plays the showrunner here, and she says the concept originally was meant as a gag.

“It’s so cool and enlivening that me and my best friend CJ Romero had this funny idea and now it’s a show,” says Stewart in a press release. “It started as a bit of a hypothetical silly pipe dream and now I am so proud to have shepherded something that is as moving and meaningful as it is truly a gay old time. Our cast makes me laugh and cry and they had the courage and heart to take us places I wouldn’t go by myself. And it’s a super cool maiden voyage for the company I’ve started with my partners Dylan Meyer and Maggie McLean. This is just the beginning for us and for ‘Living for the Dead.’ We wanna one day have traipsed across the entire spooky ass country. Maybe the world!”

Living for the Dead,” a Huluween original docuseries, premieres all eight episodes on Hulu Wednesday, October 18.

Hulu Gets Groovy And Will Stream Full ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ Series



Bruce Campbell wasn’t involved in his own Evil Dead franchise this year except for his voice on the phonograph record in Evil Dead Rise. But Hulu isn’t letting this season go by without a visit from “the chin,” and they will stream the entire Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead on Sunday, October 1.

The series was a hit among fans. So much so that it lasted three seasons, adjusted for streaming app inflation, that’s like five. Still, it would have been great if Starz had taken its Geritol and kicked ass for a final season to wrap things up.

This past July Bruce Campbell stated due to the physical constraints he could no longer continue his role as Ash Williams in the franchise that started over 40 years ago. But thanks to modern servers and streaming libraries his legacy will continue to live on for years to come.

Ash vs. Evil Dead the series will stream on Hulu starting October 1.
