An Indoor Drive-In?

That’s right…an indoor drive-in.

When I first heard news of this new $10 million indoor drive-in near Nashville, I actually thought it was a regular drive-in but had a cover over it, like one of those indoor sports field. At that point, I thought that was the coolest idea since the invention of the corndog! But the more I read through a few different articles on this, it isn’t what I thought it was. While it is an indoor theater, the cars are just permanently parked there. Not sure if they are actual even real cars or just seats fabricated classic car. So while it has the look and set up of a drive-in, not sure if it is going to have the real feel of one.

Super Monster Movie Fest Part 2

I tend to have a problem sleeping once the sun comes out, so it was around 8am when I woke up. Not only was the sun out, but it seemed to be beating down on the van, raising the internal temperature like an oven, even this early. The first thing I noticed when I opened my eyes was the heat. We had left the windows cracked open a bit so it wouldn’t be stuffy in the van, but it was just hot and we felt like we were baking. As we started to get up, I realized that maybe staying in the van wasn’t the best of ideas. Although, I did discover that I wasn’t as old as I thought I was, being able to change my clothes in the back of the van! At my age, it is those kind of achievements you have to celebrate!

Once we were up, dressed and moving about, and immediately started to put some thought into breakfast. The concession stand was still open and were serving breakfast items like breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy, etc. But we were surprised to discover that the Tamale Place in Indianapolis opens at 6:30 in the morning, meaning that we can have them for breakfast! And so we were off.

Super Monster Movie Fest 2016 Part 1

So…why would I drive 250 miles to a drive-in theater to see movies that I already own on DVD? That is a question that is tough to explain, especially to a someone that isn’t a movie person. And by a “movie person”, I mean it’s a person where movies mean more to you than your average person on the street. I mean, movies have a major impact on your life. So if you’re not one of these, I’m not sure I could explain it to you where it would make sense. If you are one, then there’s no reason to explain it anyway, because you already get it.

2015 – Year in Review…Part 1

Another year down in the history books. Filled with the usual…good things, bad things, lost things, and plenty of things to keep this horror fan busy and able to remain passionate about the genre as ever.

Near the beginning of 2015, we went through another computer crash. It had been a few years since the last crash, so I guess we were due. But in getting a new one, that of course meant the inevitable upgrade to Windows 8 (and now 10). While most might think that is a good thing, for someone using an outdated software, like Front Page 2003, these newer systems just don’t like working with old programs. In fact, they refuse to. So once I had to upgrade to the new Windows 8, I was forced to make that decision that I knew had been coming for a few years. That was taking the Krypt to a new location/format. So back in February, we moved the Krypt to its new home, on this WordPress blog site. It was a big transition, one that we’re still making, but I think I it was the right one. We have been going strong here at the new site, with more updates than we used to with the old site. Sure, they are smaller postings, but hopefully just as entertaining.
