<Ranking Dreads vs. the Living Dead!>

Unlike Fox running the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror in November when it loses its impact after All Hallow’s Eve, the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives celebrates the last Saturday before Oct. 31st!

<Dubhouse of Horror; 43 sec.>

treehouseof
Word Series in October, means Treehouse of Horror in November. WTF?

Me being a librarian by trade, I had to be extra organized. I separated my 666 Jah-loween tunes by demography. Then I had my cheat sheet of 75+ horror soundbytes and movie trailers that I chopped up inna vivisection stylee during the month of Jah-tober in my Secret Dubratory buried in the crypt of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives

Here is my Jah-loween Demonology:

  • Witchdoctors practicing Black Magic, Voodoo and Jamaican Obeah
  • Blood Suckers: Barnabas Collins, Dracula and assorted vampires
  • Devils: Lucifer, Satan with the Mark of the Beast pon their ugly faces
  • Dungeons, Coffins, Graveyards and Boneyards
  • Frankenstein
  • Ghosts and Jamaican duppies
  • The Mummy
  • Skeletons
  • Werewolves
