vampire games, vampire news, and real vampires

Haunted by Pennywise

Bill Skarsgard claims that Pennywise has been following him around since production wrapped on the big-screen blockbuster IT. Said Skarsgard: “I liken every character that I do to a relationship that you’re in, Pennywise and Bill go into this sort of relationship together… It’s just like being in a very destructive relationship, people don’t really…

Vampires of 2018

Will we be getting any vampire movies this year? It’s a safe bet, as there are always new vampire movies coming out. But will we get any that are actually worth watching? That’s the real question. Any big studio efforts? Any well-crafted Independents? (Of the twain, I tend to prefer the latter, but I won’t…

Book Review: KNUCKLE BALLED by Drew Stepek

This one had several positive plugs on the front and back covers, so that got my hopes up. Then I started reading it and I wasn’t so sure. I found Mr. Stepek’s writing style so “busy,” for lack of a better term, that it was distracting for me. It made it hard for me to…

Proof of a Fourth Dimension?

I don’t even begin to understand how this stuff works, but I find it fascinating. This report here states that there may now be proof that a fourth dimension exists. Things I’ve read elsewhere have stated that there could be as many as ELEVEN, and one source I remember reading once stated that there were…

Movie Review: A GHOST STORY

A couple of warnings for you, up front. First off, A GHOST STORY is not a straight Horror movie. It might not be a Horror movie at all. Depends on how you choose to define the genre. It IS a ghost story, just as the title promises. It does have supernatural stuff. Otherwise, it’s an…

Book Review: MANITOU BLOOD by Graham Masterton

Masterton’s been around for a long time, and he’s written a lot of books. I’ve read some of them in the past, but I’d never read any of his MANITOU series before. I picked up MANITOU BLOOD at a special discount price after noticing a fanged vampire on the cover, and because I recognized the…

Movie Review: STICKMAN

This is one of the three original films that debuted on ScyFy this past October, as part of its “31 Days of Halloween” promotion, the other two being THE SANDMAN and NEVERKNOCK. As with those other two efforts, STICKMAN raises the bar as to what you’d typically expect from the network and its homegrown productions….

Movie Review: THE BARRENS

Once you get past the one big flaw of the film, which is actually several little flaws, then it’s pretty good. The big flaw that is really several small ones? The old cliche that people in Horror movies do stupid things. Like, if you saw the Jersey Devil in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey…

The Horror In The Flames

I get depressed every year when the holidays come to an end. And it kills me how the corporate world is always in such a hurry to start the Christmas season–I kid you not, I have seen stores putting out Christmas merchandise in MAY; seriously, why would they not just keep it on the shelves…

In Defense of BLADE II

Whenever somebody makes a post like this one, chances are the bozo in question is just trying to garner some attention. In that respect, I hate to give it to him. I SHOULD just ignore him completely. I expect you all know the type. Chances are you’ve met such people. A good example is all…

Catching up with THE ANGUISHED MAN

Do you remember THE ANGUISHED MAN? It’s the supposedly cursed painting, created by an artist who mixed his own blood in with the paints he used, then ended up committing suicide. When I first covered the story, I announced that I expected a movie to be forthcoming. Whatever happened to that movie? I thought of…

Movie Review: ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE

Credit this one to my recent downtime, sick and under quarantine with the influenza over the Christmas holidays, when I had nothing to do but watch movies. I’m pleased to say that none of the films I viewed during my convalescence were lousy. In fact they were all rather good. I got lucky in that…
