RIP Magoo Gelehrter AKA “Garou”


As many of my horror friends know I have always been a big fan of horror hosts. It is with a heavy heart that I say we lost a great part of the horror host world today. Magoo Gelehrter husband of Danielle S. Oliveira Gelehrter and part of the wonderful show Penny Dreadful’s Shilling Shockers lost his battle with cancer today. I interviewed Penny over the phone for Monsters From The Basement and met them both at Monster Bash a couple of years ago. They both brought so much joy to so many, young and old alike. The thing I remember the most about him was the look in his eyes when he was in his Garou Wolfman at Monster Bash. You could truly see that he loved what he was doing. RIP Garou. You will be missed!

Check out January’s Babe From The Basement Shannon Stockin AKA Michelle Macabre


photo (18)

January’s Babe From The Basement is model Shannon Stockin AKA Michelle Macabre.  Shannon is from South Carolina and enjoys cos-playing at horror conventions.  She attended her first horror a couple years ago and was hooked.  She created her “alter-ego” Michelle Macabre as her cos-play character.  Shannon is from South Carolina and currently lives in Tennessee.  When I contacted her about being featured on this website I also asked her if I sent her a MFTB t-shirt could she have some pictures made in it.  She agreed.  I sent her the shirt and she got with her photographer and made a few pictures just for us.  You can find her on Facebook under both names.  Watch your back at the next convention you attend.  Michelle might be stalking you!!!

John Dugan From Texas Chainsaw Massacre Coming To Cult Fiction Underground In Nashville, TN

Everybody’s favorite “Grandpa”, John Dugan from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is coming to The Cult Fiction Underground in Nashville, Tn for a night of up close and personal story telling on January 3, 2014 at 7pm.


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, directed by Tobe Hopper, was released in 1974 and quickly became a cult classic.  The film went on to become one of the most iconic horror movies ever made and has spawned several sequels.  John Dugan played Grandpa in the film and is a staple on the horror convention circuit today.


The Cult Fiction Underground was opened a couple years ago by movie expert Robert Slendorn in East Nashville in the basement below Robert Logue’s Black Raven Emporium at the corner of Trinity Lane and Gallatin Road.  The theater is open most nights and shows all kinds of classic cult films.

John will be doing two shows at 7 and 9. Admission is just 7 dollars. Get there early because there are just 30 seats per show.  Come out and meet a horror icon, John Dugan!!
