Monster University TV Special DVD (2010)

Monster University TV Special Trailer

Mike "Von" Hoffman is one talented individual and this DVD is a culmination of all his talents as artist, musician and multimedia maven.

Nightmare City Halloween first became aware of Hoffman in 2004 with the introduction of the Monster University project's first release "Monster University The Soundtrack".

The Von Hoffman Orchestra has gone on to release two more Monster University albums "Monster University Touchdown!" and "Monster University Pajama Party", along with a sound effects album "Professor Von Hoffman's Halloween Haunted House CD".

(Click album images to visit to the Monster University Music page)

In my opinion, The Von Hoffman Orchestra is producing the greatest Halloween music of this modern age and his music deserves the same accolades as Bobby (Boris) Pickett of "Monster Mash" fame.

Von Hoffman has lovingly brought his music to life with the "Monster University TV Special" DVD, which features eight Von Hoffman compositions accompanied by limited animation cartoons, as well as a tour of Monster University, and introductions for each cartoon by Horace The Hippie Hunchback.

Highlights from the DVD include "Kid Frankenstein" "Dry Drac" and "Monster Mania", which are personal favorites of mine.

For the uninitiated, the "Monster University TV Special" is a great introduction to the many talents of Mike Hoffman, and I suggest you purchase a copy of this DVD and check out his websites for more great art, comics, and music!

The Ultimate Eerie Ambience Experience

Black Mass by Lucifer (1971)

This is the entire album!!

During the Halloween season of 1973 I worked at an incredible Haunted House attraction in Tulsa, Oklahoma called "Scream In The Dark"! This album played on a loop all night, every night and I thought it was the most incredible music I had ever heard.

It inspired me to start collecting Halloween audio and six years later in 1979 I started the radio show "Nightmare City Halloween", which is still going strong all these years later!

Sounds To Make You Shiver - Side A (1974)
(Adjust volume to 25%)

This is the first Halloween sound effects album I ever owned and still consider it the best Halloween sound effects album ever made!!!

Side A is the continuous soundscape!! Awesome!!!

Experience Eerie Ambience!!!

In 1980 I invented "Eerie Ambience" which is mixing multiple sound effects albums with scary music playing over them!

To experience this play, "Black Mass" by Lucifer and "Sounds To Make You Shiver" together setting the audio level for the sound effects quieter, so it doesn't drown out the music, but can still be heard!
