FRIGHTS OF FANTASY

The pages of storybook are opened in the sideshow today.  Charlie barker has some frightful fantasies to read you, straight from the realms of alternate reality so you know they are absolutely true.

What does every good following of Hansel and Gretel do when travelling through the deep, dark woods?  Why, they leave BREADCRUMBS, of course.  But where does that trail lead?  It just may be that you get lost anyway.  Such is the case when DEATH STOPS FOR DIRECTIONS.  Finally, it’s time for proper grooming.  Even monsters need to look their best.  It’s a good thing THE BARBERSHOP FROM HELL caters to their needs.

The storybook eventually closes for us all, my friends.  Yet the circus remains.  Come back again.  Charlie Barker will be waiting for you.

THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS

There are some guests are the sideshow today, folks.  Charlie has them parading by you for disapproval.  Just don’t get too ancy.  You’ll get your turn to see them all.

First up is the origin of the witch, right down to the pointy hat.  Where did they come from?  Don’t worry, we have WHAT ALES YOU.  Did you know that the headless horseman comes from a long line of headless riders?  You meet another in THE DULLAHAN COMETH.  Then, it’s off to the mall for a monstrous good time in A PROPER FOUNDATION.

Next time, it’s back on the road as Charlie takes you through some more States of Fear.  Buckle in then, won’t you?

FINAL FRONTIERS

Charlie Barker leads us out of the pull of gravity today.  To the far reaches of space, and then some.  It’s sci-fi only scarier.  It’s the Starship Sideshow!

First, what happens in the future with the prison system?  I don’t know, but perhaps we will be BUSTIN’ OUT.  The tomorrow terrors continue with a story of a doomed space voyage with a formidable furry foe in THE CAT’S AWAY.  Then, it’s off to DISTANT PLUTONIAN SHORES with a witch who had turned in her broomstick for something with a little more intergalactic appeal.

About now is time to get your head out of the stars.  It’s been fun, but we need to head back to earth for a while.  There are plenty of tales down on terra firma awaiting the Sideshow of the Surreal.  Charlie Barker will make a course correction and meet you there next time.

WITCH SIDE IS YOUR BREAD BUTTERED ON?

Did you hear that cackle?  Did you see that silhouette fly by the full moon?  There are witches in the air, friends.  Beware.

First, is there anything to eat from the coven?  If so, let’s hope it isn’t SPOILED.  Next up, it seems a bit odd that the eerie black cat is there at the nursing home every time someone dies.  There is just SOMETHING FAMILIAR about it.  Finally, it’s off to THE WARLOCK’S GARDEN we go.  Don’t you just love the smell of wolfs bane in the spring?

That’s all we have room for in the cauldron, my friends.  Come back again next time for a spell, won’t you?
