Welcome to the inaugural launch of  The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows. If you recall I began a poll last Sunday asking readers if they wanted to see the show hosted by Written in Blood. The polls have closed and the result was an astounding (to me) 18-0 in favor. What I will be doing is presenting episodes 1 & 2 on Monday, 3 & 4 on Wednesday and 5 & 6 on Friday. After that, new episodes will premiere every Friday; illness, work and other monkey wrenches that life throws our way permitting.

So, without further adieu show creator Daryl Wor and myself welcome you to The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows.

From Daryl Wor:

“So, The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows is a condensed re-write of the old 1960′s series Dark Shadows.However, it incorporates a ton of other shows and films, mostly from the 1960′s to help get all the characters into a resolved state so they’ll eventually still be spooky, but working together rather than eating each other alive all the time.

So, a type of Dark Shadows, hosted by Sir Simon Milligan and Manservant Hecubus from The Kids In The Hall skits. The skits were called The Pit of Ultimate Darkness, hence the combined name of the podcast. Then the butler from Clue steps in, later Capt. Gregg fromThe Ghost & Mrs. Muir, eventually the Addams Family and well, the list goes on. So it would appeal to more than one set of fans to these things.  A sort of “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” approach.

And YEP! It’s all me, Daryl Wor… written, conceived, and performed by, though I have the help of sound clips, music and a very patient spouse! After doing all this, I must quote Sir Simon Milligan, “I am a man, possessed by many demons! Polite demons who would open a door for a lady carrying too many parcels… but DEMONS nonetheless.” And yeah, I’m a chick, but I really don’t mind being called Mister. Sure as heck beats “Ma’am“. So, you could call it a one-woman-show, but with all these characters and getting them accurate, I can hardly take all the credit.”

About Written in Blood

I was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina on March 4, 1962. I guess that makes me old, but I certainly don't feel that way. I still play video games and listen to rock and roll music. I love movies, especially horror films. I have a beautiful wife who is my all time best friend. She supports me in everything I do. More importantly, she calls me out on my bullshit. This blog is dedicated to her for everything she's done for me.
