Denny McNamara hasn’t been having the best of luck lately. His girlfriend Renee dumped him, his brother is threatening to to sell Denny’s house if he can’t come up with next month’s rent, and he’s become so unsure of himself, he’s beginning to question his real purpose in life. Like many horror fans, Denny has a soft spot for horror hosts of the 1980s, like Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark, or Mystery Science Theater 3000. Denny’s personal favorite has always been Ghostman, a jolly, sarcastic host of the underworld with a painted face and a single mission: to share his love of the genre with all who care to watch. Sadly, Ghostman has recently been replaced with a younger, more attractive frontman named Rick, who prefers to be called by his stage name, “Count Dracool”.
