THE STRAIN preview: Ouroboros + The Truck Fight

First, here’s a sneak peek trailer for this coming Sunday’s episode, “Ouroboros.” An Ouroborus is that symbol of a snake eating its own tail. You’ve seen it. It’s supposed to represent eternity or something. Google it. Anyway, the preview looks dope as all get out. “We’re here,” Quinlan says. “And now we’re coming for you.”…

IT Masks and a New TV Spot

I know I’m pimpin’ the hell out of the forthcoming IT remake. No, I’m not on the payroll. I tend to do that with properties I’m excited about, is all. If it turns out that the movie blows and all my hard work was for nothing, my vengeance will be terrible to behold. I will…

Bath Bombs and Bones

Whenever my lovely better half or one of my friends is surfing the web and comes across something odd, paranormal-themed, Horror, vampire, werewolf, or zombie-related, etc., she or he or they will send me the links, in order that I can, if I so choose, make use of the material for fodder here on this…

THE STRAIN Episode Recap 8-20-17

Yeah, I’m a day late, I know. I DVR’d the show yesterday but only got to watch it tonight. I’m doin’ the best I can, here! At least I got to see the show. I had to get my satellite dish taken down over the weekend and reassembled in a more advantageous spot to get…

MUNSTERS, go home!

You can’t keep a bad idea down, it seems. Remember a few years ago when there was talk of reviving THE MUNSTERS as a television series. They were going to call it something-MOCKINGBIRD LANE. I recall that Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn were supposed to star in it. Or maybe just O’Connell. I forget. Seems…

Sir No-Face a No-Show?

Over at our sister site, topcomics.com, I was grousing this week about the way certain sites will report on unfounded rumors as if they were facts. Bearing that in mind, I need to preface this with a disclaimer. I am not a journalist. I don’t want to be a journalist. Had I wanted to be…

Preview: THE STRAIN Episode 6, Season 4 – “Tainted Love”

Here’s a teaser for next Sunday’s episode. Eichorst seems to have recovered nicely from being immolated by Dutch. Looks like we’ll be getting more of Quinlan, too, so I’m a happy camper. Those yokels Eichorst was taking out, those were the same guys who bailed on Fet and Quinlan, right? Can’t feel too sorry for…

Quinlan Meets Jack?

Now we know why Quinlan has been making eyes at Fet’s newest girlfriend: she reminds him of a chick he knew in 1888 London. When we see the year “1888”, all educated geeks (educated, that is, in geeky matters) automatically think of Jack the Ripper, as that was the year of the murderer’s official rampage….

Introducing THE ROOK

Ladies and gentlemen, please permit me to introduce to you my creation, my character, The Rook. I’ve gotten to know him well over the past three years. I’d like for the world at large to get to know him, too. I had just finished watching the Roland West silent film masterpiece THE BAT (which, by…

Of Legos and Real Estate

I’ve been posting a bit as of late about the upcoming big screen remake of Stephen King’s IT. Last week I reported on the fact that King’s character from the book, the Turtle, who is the enemy of Pennywise and features in King’s DARK TOWER series (And such a shame it was that the movie…

Sir No-Face comes to Huntsville

This makes me sad. There are these guys, paranormal investigator-slash-writer-slash-director Chad Calek and producer Justin Holstein, who have this documentary entitled SIR NO-FACE, which is touted (by them) as providing incontrovertible proof that ghosts exist. The documentary is touring the country, like a comedy show or rock band, and is making a stop in Huntsville,…

Meet the new Ripper; same as the old Ripper

When the “secret” diary of Jack the Ripper came out two decades-and-change ago, Ripperologists were nigh universal in laughing at it. Guys like retired police detective turned respected Ripper scholar Donald Rumbelow have referred to it the whole thing as “ridiculous.” Yet now the diary is in the headlines again. Purely by coincidence, the guy…
