Kansas City’s Haunted Attraction,The Beast, Adopts Dark Oak’s Aracni-apes.

Now, there is another reason to fear “The Beast.”

This Halloween, two new monsters will be lurking in the huge haunted attraction known as The Beast. Having taken care of them for a year, I can tell you, they are always hungry.

The Aracni-ape is an instinct-driven hunter. This breed likes to hang from trees, feigning death to lure in prey that get too curious.

This playing ‘possum breed can be found in forests, swamps, and caves, any habitat that provides concealment for its drop-down ambush tactics. That includes old buildings.

I hate to see them go, but care & feeding of these guys was getting problematic. I’m sure the staff at The Beast are better suited to care for these little monsters. After all, they have been looking after their pet ‘gators and Medusa, the world’s largest anaconda in captivity, for years. What a happy home The Beast will make for the aracni-apes.

The second breed, shown below, is the more deadly of the two. It prefers to stalk its prey.

The deadly dasher.

Should you visit any of the other Full Moon Productions haunted attractions, keep in mind, these creatures could be in any of them. There is no guarantee they will stay in The Beast.  Watch out for them in The Edge of Hell, The Chambers of Poe, or in the Macabre Cinema attractions.

Happy haunts!

 

Halloween Surprise.

What a curious congregation.  What Devil’s work is this?

This post is a preview of a short–very short–attempt at a video. The learning curve to “doing it all” is a steep hill with sharp rocks at the bottom. But, real fun usually has an element of danger, so the bumps, bruises and broken feelings are just part of the roller coaster haunted house ride.

Happy haunting.

Spring has Sprung.

The ice has melted. Some one did not use enough chain and concrete block.  Rookies.

King Konged Again.

The original and every remake of King Kong has wowed me.

Now, we will see what Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Single Dads, Kings of Summer) does with a new story line and Samuel L. Jackson.

Coming in March: KING KONG, Skull Island.

 

John Goodman and John C. Riley, veteran actors who rarely disappoint, are also cast in this reboot.

I feel I must see this one to be fair to Peter Jackson, who, as we all know, follows this blog and knows I have pointed out several weaknesses in his epic and awesome version of Kong. Sorry, Peter. You know Jack Black was miscast or misdirected in the part and several of the CGI monster attacks ran too long.

See you in the theater.

End.
