dark-ride

What would fun at a Fair be without a good Puppet Show? Well, in this set piece a Puppet Show is being led by Harry Rabbit and his juggling son Jack Rabbit. Harry is seen puppeteering a puppet of a Gypsy and Russian dancer. Other puppets seen on the rack are inspired by the likes of a Roaring 20s gal, a cowboy, a clown, an artist, a Keystone Cop and a Latin dancer. His son Jack on the other hand is seen juggling balls under the blacklight environment. This entire scene was elaborate under blacklight and was aided by a Calliope of the famed Knott’s Bear-y Tales song! Photo Courtesy Knott’s Preserved

This talking tree (and his owl buddy) have seen better days, but I dig their character design. As for their voices, though, I know they’re promoting a haunted house, but these guys sound downright demonic! I pity the ride operators who have to listen to this all day.

Book Recommendation: Dark Matter

by Blake Crouch

We just finished reading this amazing book and thought it would be a great fit for our next recommendation. It’s a science thriller and an absolute crazy ride.

Dark Matter is the story of Jason Dessen, a mild-mannered college physics professor who gets abducted one night by a masked man, conked over the head, injected with some “science” and wakes up in a world that is not his own. It tackles the multiverse theory and quantum physics (keep in mind its a work of fiction that requires you to bypass whether you agree with the science or not) and its truly a nail-biter. It’s a great book that makes you think about the relativity of your existence to reality.

If you guys have more books you think we should read and post about, feel free to shoot us a message. Enjoy!

Movies Bloodborne fans should watch: (if you ask me :P)
  • Brotherhood of the Wolf (French movie about the Beast of Gévaudan. Bloodborne’s fashion is most likely inspired by its beautiful costumes.)
  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Cainhurst? Cainhurst. Cheesy at times.)
  • Crimson Peak (Gothic romance at its finest.)
  • Hellboy 1 / 2 - The Golden Army (Just watch the two movies, okay? SO GOOD.)
  • Van Helsing (yeah yeah, I know this one isn’t that great. WHO CARES! harmless fun with crazy weaponry and big monsters.)
  • Mary Reilly (the classic tale of Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde seen from the point of view of Jekyll’s housemaid who, obviously, has a crush on him. )
  • From Hell (Jack the Ripper. Johnny Depp, Alan Moore, lots of drugs.)
  • The Whisperer in the Darkness (The best adaptation of Lovecraft’s story of the same name.)
  • Red Riding Hood (this movie gets all the hate just because it has the same director as Twilight but is a pretty decent movie with great atmosphere and a nice twist near the end. It’s not that easy to figure out who’s the wolf! My only complaint about this flick is that the actors are waaaay too attractive in pure young-adult romance fashion. Still worth a watch.)
  • Tenshi no Tamago (aka Angel’s Egg. Weird, visually stunning, very esoteric and reminds me a ton of Fishing Hamlet for some reason. The plot is cryptic and mysterious, just like Bloodborne’s.)
  • The Company of Wolves (a weird classic based upon Angela Carter’s dark fairytales ~♡)
  • Pride, Prejudice and Zombies (It’s better than you think.)
  • Goya’s Ghosts (SPANISH INQUISITION! Heresy! Torture! Drama! Doesn’t “look” like Bloodborne, but the themes are there and is overall a good historical movie with great actors.)
  • Penny Dreadful (TV series. This one is a mixed bag for me, but the photography is stunning and Victorian to the core. Rushed ending tho. And a lot of gratuitous sex scenes that don’t go anywhere. I warned you.)
  • Taboo (TV series. PRETTY NICE)
  • Solomon Kane (PURITAN DUDE KILLS STUFF)
  • Hellsing Ultimate (Anime OVA which needs no introduction.)
CALEB IS A.D | CLUES

This is going to be a long post, sorry.

  • Marlene said she knew who was going to be A and AD since the beginning and that AD has been around since the beginning. That doesn’t need to mean that AD is on the pilot but he is in the first season.
  • Caleb’s first episode is 1x14 and three episodes later, Spencer calls him Artful Dodger. AD.
  • He lives in the school and has a little lair where he has a lot of phones, money…
  • Later, in the episode where Hanna and Aria find his lair, he literally appears as -A: black hoodie. And instead of talking to them he runs after the girls as if he was actually -A. Why doing that?
  • Both of his parents’ last names’ start with D (Dawson and Doyle) so his real last name starts with D.
  • He lived with Lucas. He and Caleb are the only characters that have appeared reading comics (arcturus hint).
  • He helped Jenna investigate the girls.
  • Caleb’s locker combination was 2-1-4. BAD.
  • When Mona was in Radley, Hanna wanted to visit her but Caleb didn’t want her to go because she could see Cece there or she could find out something from Mona.
  • Hanna saw Lucas visiting someone in Radley. She went there without telling Caleb but when she got out he was there. Caleb took Lucas there and stayed out because he was watching if someone went there so he could warn Lucas. Caleb was surprised to see Hanna there but then he said he knew she was going there. Lucas got out and they enchanged weird looks like the one Lucas gave to Aria in 7x16 and that look was intentioned.
  • Caleb wanted Hanna far away from Mona and Radley all the time. The only requirement for her to be there was with Caleb’s presence. 
  • He dressed up similar to El Zorro: post here
  • The mask he wore in the This is a Dark Ride appeared in the dollhouse besides Charles. 
  • After he left for Ravenswood, he came back to Rosewood (and the show) in the same episode Lucas was having a party for his girlfriend (who never showed up). Caleb shows up. Was he the ‘famous girlfriend’ and was having a ‘welcome home’ party?
  • After the dollhouse, Caleb was shady and overprotective with Hanna. He even put a gps in her car. Who also likes to put gps on the girls? AD? A?
  • The girls went to find Charles/Charlotte’s Radley file to a storehouse and who appeared suddenly? Caleb. He admits to have put a gps on her car. I bet it wasn’t the first time he did it. He took it off but he still wanted to know everything about where Hanna was. He wanted to know if she/they find out something.
  • In the same episode (6x04) we find out that -A (Charlotte) was watching them because they had a gps chip on their napes. Caleb gave her the gps chips.
  • They were investigating Holbrook and they find a warehouse. The number of that warehouse (which they believed it was Holbrook’s) was 1017. Episode 1x17 is the same one where Spencer calls Caleb ‘Artful Dodger’.

After time jump clues and S7 clues (Marlene said to re-watch S7 for clues)

  • Caleb came back to Rosewood after Charlotte’s death.
  • It was then when he started his game. He wasn’t AMOJI.
  • He installed the cameras and the security system of the Radley so he could know everything. AD texted some things that happened there.
  • Caleb had a room at the Radley (said by Ashley Marin in 7x17) but we never saw the room. He was always in Spencer’s barn or in Lucas’ apartment. Suspicious.
  • Lucas had to meet someone in Radley at the same time Hanna had to find Spencer’s bill she payed with Rollins card. Since she took a while, Caleb had to help her and Lucas didn’t meet with that person because he wasn’t in the room.
  • AD’s boardgame appeared inside Spencer’s barn. She was shot and couldn’t grab weight but Caleb could have done a copy of the keys and left the game inside.
  • Hanna asked him for help with the board and he got hurt. That was the fakest incident ever. I mean, that’s an alibi that almost every villain plays: getting hurt from the ‘villain’. Besides, it wasn’t that bad…
  • He has the same computer that AD. 
  • He has been missing in a couple of episodes.
  • He hastily asks Hanna if she wants to marry him and like two days after, they get married. He says: If we get married we can’t testify against each other. I MEAN HE’S LITERALLY TRYING TO SAVE HIS ASS.


    Disclaimer: I’ve found some of these clues in instagram and twitter (@uberadictos).

Remember when we said that we’d rather not post any FNAF-related stuff because they’re technically not real robots?

Heh, funny story…

Robot Grandma is magical and going to send you back in time to round up stray cartoon turkeys, is the takeaway here and basis for the whole attraction.

I don’t know what else to say about this, except for holy shit.

The Weird Woods fish inside Knott’s Bear-y Tales. This character stretched his limbs out to make it look like his head and other limbs can leave out of body. The effect of the guy is best seen under blacklight and I wish we had footage of him in action. This guy is weird and is one of the many characters from the ride that still exist today. On a side note, we sometimes like to call this guy the Heisenberg Fish since he’s got a Breaking Bad aesthetic going on here. Though Tales predates that show by a few decades lol.
