Book Review: DAWN IN DAMNATION by Clark Casey

Lemme give you the premise first: Damnation is a town where dead cowboys go, and other people, too, folks who weren’t good enough in life to earn a pass into Heaven but weren’t so lousy that they go straight to Hell, either. It’s a sort of purgatory, where the streets are always dusty, it is…

The Tomb of Santa Claus

Small children, stop reading here. Actually, why are you on this site in the first place? Bad kid! Get outta here now! Come back when you’re older–or at least don’t tell your parents if something you read here gives you nightmares. I’ll take a click where I can get it. Santa Claus is an amalgamation…

VAMPIRINA

I expect you’ve all experienced it to some extent. There’s a derision that non-Horror people have for the Horror fanatics of the world; derision, if not outright hostility–or fear. Anyone who has read any of my fiction can attest to the fact that I don’t eschew violence, bloodshed, or gore if they’re called for. I’ve…

Buying Dirt From Transylvania

There’s an ad I saw online where you can purchase one square foot of dirt from Transylvania for fifty bucks. Commentators were sagely pointing out that it could be a scam. A person could go dig up a square foot of dirt from his own backyard and then claim that it was from Transylvania. Granted…

Taylor Swift Is SO Much Hotter Dead

This post, here, is a rarity, friends. This is, in all likelihood, the only time you will ever hear me mention Taylor Swift, or any mainstream celebrity, on this site. I don’t do celebrity gossip. It is not conceivably possible that I could care less. I’m well informed on my geek culture, but mainstream pop…

Can’t Keep a Good Monster Down

Seems like I just saw JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 in the theater. Oh, wait; I DID. Check out my review here. This past week brought news that there would be more Creeper coming our way, and much sooner than expected. JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 will air on Syfy on Saturday October 28th. Huzzah! I’m already setting my…

A Visit to the HOUSE OF DOLLS

In rural northern Alabama, in October, the weather is still warm if not downright hot, but the leaves are starting to change. The sunlight comes in at a slight slant. The cornfields are full, the stalks high. Pumpkins are for sale in the local supermarkets. And for every lover of things dark and horrific–and at…

A new SALEM’S LOT?

Hollywood is nothing if not derivative. The exact opposite of originality. If something makes money, every studio in existence is going to jump on that bandwagon. There will even be studios that don’t exist yet come into being to jump on the bandwagon! For a perfect example, look no further than the superhero craze. The…

Is Jigsaw a Vampire?

It’s possible, if they decide to go the supernatural route with him for the forthcoming JIGSAW, the eighth sequel in the SAW franchise. They killed the Jigsaw killer off several movies ago, yet kept right on making follow-ups. Is the original back in the new one, or is it a case of another one of…

Slenderman and Sandman

A verdict was reached in the Slenderman stabbing case. A jury decided that a Wisconsin tween was mentally deranged at the time she and a friend stabbed her classmate in an attempt to appease the fictitious Slenderman. The accused, Anissa Weier, may well be batshit crazy, but that doesn’t make her any less a threat…

Witch Windows

I’ve never seen a Witch Window before. Or I should say, I HAD never seen a Witch Window before, not until I chanced upon this article. That’s not surprising, since Witch Windows seem to be almost exclusive to the state of Vermont, and I’ve never been to Vermont. What is a “Witch Window,” you ask?…

The Birdcage Theater of Tombstone

Last month, while on a driving tour of the great American Southwest, I made it a point to visit Tombstone, Arizona. Tombstone is within close driving distance of THE THING?, located right off Interstate 10, and I couldn’t pass through the area without stopping to see both attractions. They’ve preserved a street in Tombstone, the…
