31 Days of Halloween: MONSTER HIGH Gore-geous Ghoul - The Anti-Styling Head (Holiday Wish Guide)

Holiday Wish GuideIt's completely appropriate to end the 2014 edition of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER in the manner that I'm doing right now... in a way that I've never done before. The final entry for Halloween helps me to seamlessly transition into the Holiday season, as it's also included in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide. Sure, MONSTER HIGH is a year-round passion for children and grownup collectors alike, but for Halloween it's just a perfect toy... and one that will be highly requested in the Holiday build-up weeks ahead. Licensed by Mattel, MONSTER HIGH Gore-geous Ghoul: The Anti-Styling Head by Just Play Toys is a spooky spin on an old favorite.

31 Days of Halloween: Eric Herman - MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL

MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALLLast night, the San Francisco Giants captured the pennant and were declared World Series Champions, thus ending another season of Major League Baseball, and sending the Kansas City Royals back into the shadows of shame. But what if the Giants weren't giants at all, but were aliens... and not from San Francisco, but New York? This is just one of many mysteries to ponder in MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL, the new video from family music artist, ERIC HERMAN. But it's not a song, it's a radio play, and there may not be Giants, but there is a Giant Spider who calls upon STAR WARS' most famous Dark Lord of The Sith, DARTH VADER, to pinch-hit. Gather the kids and turn up the volume on that there computer box, and get ready to find out what would happen if Count Dracula, The Mummy, Bigfoot and The Invisible Man happened to play for Chicago. It's a perfect entry for Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER...

31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS: Halloween Candy Heist

  • Published in DWTS

For Halloween Week, it's only appropriate to take a deeper look at the infamous DEATH WALKS THE STREETS #1: A NEW MARSHALL FALL. The "Halloween issue" was ripe in seasonal goodness, a heavily-detailed affair featuring the artwork of Guilherme Balbi (DC's SUPERBOY, Dark Horse's PREDATOR), along with the gorgeous interior color work of Milen Parvanov (DC's RESIDENT EVIL, Lion Forge's KNIGHT RIDER). With The Organization running things in New Marshall, it's to be expected that certain things will "fall off the truck" on occasion... or the whole truck will just wind up in the wrong hands. What bounty would Michael find himself tasked with unloading in the first moments of DWTS #1? Halloween candy... specifically, "Choco-Bats."

31 Days of Halloween: DROWNING POOL - "Bodies" (13th Anniversary Zombie Lyric Video)

13 years ago, DROWNING POOL released SINNER, their breakthrough album - the one from which "Bodies" came forth. The anthemic single has become their signature song, and one oft-used in other media from soundtracks and commercials (FRIDAY THE 13th sequel, JASON X) to events like WWE SummerSlam. To celebrate the (un)lucky 13th, the band will release a 2-Disc Anniversary Edition of the album on November 11, but for 31 Days of Halloween, "Bodies" makes an appearance here on THE ROCK FATHER in an all-new Zombie-themed lyric video. Crank it up!

31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS: When Danielle jumped from the page to the screen!

  • Published in DWTS

Oh, the oddities of the DEATH WALKS THE STREETS project...

Indeed, there were many, and in a lot of ways we were ahead of the curve in terms "transmedia" marketing and how different pieces would fit into the bigger puzzle. At one point, at least a half-dozen characters from the DWTS world had dedicated MySpace pages where they were blogging regularly (stories penned by me) with tales that would directly plug into the larger DWTS storyline with seamless continuity. By the time the comics came along, we took things to the next level, calling into action the actress that was set to be our live-action Danielle in the planned films - our Australian friend, Efisia Fele. Her screen test for the first DWTS film was KILLER (I hope I still have a copy somewhere), but what we did for the comics were video blogs that led directly into each issue. Take a look...

31 Days of Halloween: DINOSAUR TRAIN - Buddy's Halloween Adventure

PBS KIDS VIPDid Halloween exist in the prehistoric days? While some would say "of course not, Rock Father!" I will say, "absolutely!" DINOSAUR TRAIN: BUDDY'S HALLOWEEN ADVENTURE proves that, bringing four episodes of The Jim Henson Company's hit PBS KIDS series home in one spook-tacular collection that we've been enjoying these past few weeks here at Rock Father HQ. Why do preschoolers find such fascination in both dinosaurs and trains? I don't think that's ever been scientifically-explored, but combining both has been a big win, and adding the year's best holiday into the mix pushes it right to the top for a spot in this year's 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER.
