My Night With The Spirits, Part Two

If you haven’t read the first in this series of articles, you need to go do that first. You back? Good. Moving on. I want to stress the professionalism of the folks with the Tuscaloosa Paranormal Research Group. They arrived exactly on time, with several vehicles and some $60,000 worth of high-tech equipment. (These folks…

My Night With The Spirits, Part One

Recently I had the opportunity to spend the night in a genuine haunted house with a team of professional paranormal investigators. My fear was that nothing would happen, that the team would make the long drive from Tuscaloosa, Alabama to Huntsville all for nothing. That’d there’d be nothing to show for it and I’d be…

What To Expect From DRACULA

Just to remind you all that there is supposed to be another DRACULA television series. It’s being developed by the guys who did the show SHERLOCK, so we know that they know how to do period drama. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are ready to begin writing the show’s first episode, so it’s still in…

Doug Jones To Star In WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS!

That’s the forthcoming television series, set to appear on FX, if’n you didn’t know. This news makes me feel a lot better about the show’s prospects. When I first heard that they were going to be turning the instant classic Horror/Comedy film into a TV series, I was equally excited and worried. The actors from…

The Zombie Cheese

I would call it the “vampire cheese” but there is no indication that blood has been used to preserve the cheese’s longevity. Then again, there is no indication that human brains were used, either, so I could just as easily call it “Vampire Cheese.” Yes, let us do that. This is the story of the…

Happy Bloody Valentine’s!

To quote from the Bluegrass-y remake of the song “99 Problems” by Hugo (as opposed to the original from Jay-Z, which I don’t care for) as used to great effect in the FRIGHT NIGHT remake. “If you’re havin’ girl problems, I feel bad for ya’ son. I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.”…

The Soska Sisters Want Your Blood

Sylvia and Jen Soska, the “Twisted Twins”, a pair of independent movie directors responsible for such modern classics as AMERICAN MARY, are “hosting” a blood drive. “It’s that magical time of year again where we Sisters Soska don’t just want to spill blood on the screen, but want YOU to bleed for us. Don’t worry,…

In defense of Kinski

Klaus Kinski was one of those actors who’d take any old part that came along. He’s sorta like Nicholas cage in that respect, except his talent eclipses Cage’s like a spotlight outshines a match. I have full confidence saying that Kinski took roles that were beneath his abilities both because so many who knew him…

A Look Back At THE MUMMY

Sometimes I will go back and take a second look at a movie I’ve seen and initially didn’t care for, just because I keep hearing such good things about it from other people. Maybe, I think, I missed something. Rarely, very rarely, I will change my opinion based on this second viewing. (GONE GIRL is…

Should they make BLADE 4, or “Revamp” the series?

Honestly, I’m not sure they should do either. This might be a case of “leaving well enough alone.” The first two BLADE movies were hella strong. The third, not so much, and let us not even mention that attempt at a TV show. (What, you forgot there was a Blade TV show? Consider yourself lucky.)…

Of Vampires and Sanguivores

In this day and age, and in a free society, a person can call himself anything he wants to. This doesn’t just apply to gender. If an anatomically male individual claims to really be a female “on the inside” and wants to be referred to as a “she,” I will do so as a show…

A Reason to watch RIVERDALE?

When I first heard–er, read–about the CW’s plan to bring the Archie comics to life in a new, “dark” television series called RIVERDALE, I responded with a sneer. I thought it sounded stupid. If I’m being frank, I still do, and this despite the fact that RIVERDALE is now in its second season and has…
