Tonight I'm adding new Halloween Haunted Houses for the 2009 holiday season. The links might not be new to you, but they're links I have never added to Dark Side of the Net's Haunted House links yet. This is fun!
Coffin Creek is in Corona, California.
The Empty Grave is in Anaheim, one block east of Disneyland.
Legend of Boot Hill is held in Irvine.
The Queen Mary is host to Shipwreck Halloween. Looks fun, I'm ashamed I never linked to this in years past!
And at Six Flags Magic Mountain there are Halloween events starting October 3, called "Fright Fest."
Colorado Springs, Colorado is the site of Haunted Mines.
Deadly Intentions is in Warren, Michigan.
Exit 13 is in Mount Morris, Michigan.
Wyandotte, Michigan is the home of Hellblock 13.
Frightmares - Burnsville, Minnesota hosts four attractinons: Asylum, Haunted Hollow, Fright Factory, and Orchard Manor.
Macabre Manor takes place in Keyport, NJ.
Howl O Scream is from Busch and Sea World. It takes place in Williamsburg, VA, as well as Tampa Bay, FL and San Antonio, TX.

New links for Dark Side of the Net on September 24:
Oh. My. God. I love this: The Art of Natalie Shau. She's an amazingly talented illustrator and photographer from Lithuania. I bet you'll find several things here you'll enjoy looking at. The artist also has a Myspace presence, Twitter stream, and a Livejournal.
What a shame this isn't being updated anymore! The Aethereal Adventures of Emma Verne" was an amazing steampunk webcomic. The blog hasn't been updated since 2008, but you can enjoy the back archives at least. I won't be linking to this on Darklinks since it's no longer updated, but I enjoyed looking at it today.
Gentleman's Emporium sells men's and ladies recreated 1800s style garments. There are also some lovely lacy parasols, felt hats, bathing costumes, and pocket watches. Not necessarily a "steampunk" store, but carries clothing you could adapt and utilize for your needs.
While checking links, I came across this interesting one-of-a-kind goth Jesus art doll, on eBay. Freaky. A lot of work went into this, but I wonder if it will find a buyer at that price.
The Amphi Festival 2010 will feature Funker Vogt, And One, Project Pitchfork, and Destroid. It takes place July 24-25, 2010 in Cologne, Germany. There's a Livejournal community, a MySpace page, and a Twitter page.
Speaking of events, I'm keeping my eye on this Zombie Christmas Ball that some people in Minneapolis, MN plan to host again this year.
Dark and Horror Blogs:
Frankensteinia is one of the best written and most interesting blogs I've come across in the genre, ever. Currently comparing C-3PO to the Monster; showcasing a Superman comic where Bizarro meets Frankenstein's monster; and sharing screencaps from Flash Gordon meeting Frankenstein. If you're interested in the topic, I'd make sure to subscribe to the RSS feed or stop by a couple times a week. There's also a Twitter page for the blog, a MySpace, and a Facebook Page.
Black Widows Nightclub is a goth club in Melbourne, Australia. They play synthpop, industrial, darkwave and gothic rock.
Cadillacs & Cadavers is a deathrock, horrorpunk band from Canada. They sport gigantic, cool mohawks, so I would have thought they were a straight up punk band, huh.

Flames Rising is a pretty nice looking horror zine. They have fiction, blogs, news, interviews and reviews. They're also on Twitter.
Tonight I visited Bella's Diary, a Twilight fan fiction site. I liked the idea of a fan fiction diary, but there are a lot of cluttery ads here too. If you want to read more Twilight blogs, try Top Twilight Blogs.com.
You may wonder why I link to Twilight, when it's not a goth or even a horror movie. Yeah, I know. My thought is that kids who don't know much about Goth might stumble upon my blog posts sprinkled with occasional Twilight stuff, and in the process explore links to stuff that's actually goth.
I Twittered this a while ago.. an interesting article on Guillermo del Toro's house from io9. Fabulous pictures.
I'm not sure if this is a joke site, or serious: FaceGoth.com.
Halloween Lolcats: HalLolween.
A monster-shaped stroller for toddlers. Um. Scary.
