Cap'n Crunch and a Handy


Now that my life has obtained a little more order, let's jump right back in, OK?

There are times when I really do like this little hobby of mine and those moments are when I find something completely awesome that has flown under everybody's radar.  Let me share this moment if I may.

Many of you know that my childhood was spent almost in it's entirety in front of the boob tube.  This was no small feat because my parents would actually use the outdoors as punishment.  All of that being said, Saturday Morning Mystery is my childhood nightmare come true.

Gee, Mr. Weatherby.  You mean there's gh-gh-gh-gh-ghosts?!?
Yes, kids, we finally have the horror movie that we all know Scooby-Doo tried to be without being so scary as to run off the rugrats that ate that shit up, including myself.  We've got Nancy (Velma), Gwen (Daphne), Chad (Freddy) and Floyd (Shaggy) and their mutt, Hamlet (HA!  Great Dane, indeed.) out being all paranormal investigators out to pay the bills with a van full of Floyd's drugs and some ghostbusting equipment.

Seriously, the only thing we're missing is an ascot.

Solvin' mysteries... pissin' off the cops.
Unlike in the cartoon, these kids have problems, bad habits and worse wardrobes.  And the screenwriter must totally hate Daphne because Gwen totally gets shafted.

This is new to video so I'm not gonna go to far into it but suffice it to say that there's acid and satanism involved which totally make for some 80's throwback horror movie awesomeness.  Y'know... with bad fashion choices.

And axes.
These are grown-up characters and I totally dig on this.  If you can find it, give it a shot.  I hearted it.
