Re: Your October movie-binging plans (Halloween month, DUH) Part II: Dead by Dawn
In addition to movies, I also like to watch Halloween and Horror themed episodes of 80s cartoons I loved as a kid.
"House of Shokoti" Parts 1 and 2 from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
- No Skeletor, no Teela, no Man-At-Arms, almost no Castle Greyskull, no problem. The show's only two part adventure details He-Man and friends' search for the House of Shokoti, the evil temple of a dark sorceress that once ruled over the Dark Side of Eternia. This two parter has monsters galore, two creepy villains (Shokoti in part 2 and her follower, Lord Masque, in part 1), and an overall more horror based story than the status quo from this show.
"The Ghost Warrior" from Thundercats
- In addition to being my favorite episode of Thundercats and this story adding much to the mythos of the series, this episode is at its core, a ghost story as the Thundercats have to deal with the evil spirit of Grune the Destroyer.
"Spitting Image" from Thundercats
- Mumm-Ra plays Dr. Frankenstein in a sense as he creates a clone of Panthro and uses the ghost of Hammerhand the pirate to give it life. The clone destroys everything in its path and the real Panthro is blamed for its actions. The scenes in Mumm-Ra's laboratory (where the fuck did he get that anyway?) are what make the episode for me and make it fitting for this time of year, but Panthro clone is a pretty fierce villain for the series too.
"The Phantom Brigade" from GI Joe
- Cobra Commander has had some wacky schemes in his day, and this one ranks among the top of the list as he hires a gypsy to raise the spirits of three long dead warriors to combat GI Joe.
"Dweller in the Depths" from Transformers
- This post movie episode explores the history of the Transformers creators, the Quintessons, and also gives us a heck of a horror story as well. The Quintessons trick Galvatron and the Decepticons into unleashing ancient cybernetic monsters from Cybertron's core, one of which is an energy leech that turns Transformers, Autobots and Decepticons alike, into zombie like energy vampires themselves.
"The Curse of Castle McDuck" from Duck Tales
- Scrooge takes his nephews to his ancestral home, which is believed to be haunted by a demon dog that chased the McDucks out of the castle hundreds of years ago. This is a creepy ghost story for the show that explores Scrooge's history as well as his own fears.
"Ducky Horror Picture Show" from Duck Tales
- We get to see Duck World versions of classic movie monsters like The Wolf Man, Frankenstein and his bride, Dracula, The Blob, and various others, making this a fun and loving tribute to the icons of horror cinema's past.
And pretty much any episode from The Real Ghostbusters would fit, though the one I like to watch the most is "Citizen Ghost" as it is basically a better Ghostbusters 2 than Ghostbusters 2.
