THE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 15

On the field ahead, Gale had shaken off most of her psychological numbness, the shock to her senses of the repeated exposures to terror. She had started talking again. Whereas it had been Deb’s strength which carried them over the mass grave, that unflowing river of corpses, and beyond the reach of the fire, Gale…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 15

THE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 14

“Got you now, little bitch. Got you now.” Charlie Drenth had sat on the scorched lip of the mass grave and cried, his face buried in his dirty hands. “We’ll never catch ’em now!” he’d blubbered. But he had. Now he squatted in the dry grass and laughed. Charlie pressed a finger to one nostril,…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 14

The First Dracula Stage Production

We thought we knew the pedigree, how the Dean-Balderston script evolved, led to the involvement of Bela Lugosi, led to the Universal movie of 1931. It turns out there were plans for an earlier production, one that, for reasons unknown, never came to fruition. This earlier version would have involved Bram Stoker himself, not just…Continue readingThe First Dracula Stage Production

In the News

Visit Camp Blood Again

I don’t get tired of writing about Jason Voorhees. The FRIDAY THE 13th movies were just too big a part of my childhood. I love them, and their hockey-mask-wearing star, too much for that. (No surprise to regular followers of this site.) The lumbering (sometimes) hulking (unless you count FRIDAY THE 13TH Part 2, where…Continue readingVisit Camp Blood Again

The Darkness laughed then, threw back its sham head and laughed. Dave’s features crumbled away; the very scenes surrounding them vanished. Brian found himself left in a void of absolute nothingness, yet he couldn’t escape the laughter. It grew in volume, deafening. His bones trembled to the resonance. “So be it, little fool!” the Darkness…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 13

Meet the MiniPufts

I’m not gonna worry about GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE. I’m going to have faith. I’m not going to think about how ridiculously high the bar has been set. It would have been anyway: it’s the first GHOSTBUSTERS movie (that isn’t an unfortunate revisionist misstep) in over 30 years, and one that promises to be a proper continuation…Continue readingMeet the MiniPufts

The Lost Egyptian City and the “Mysterious” Skeleton

Any news pertaining to ancient Egypt is bound to excite me. Bound to excite a lot of you, too, I expect. We automatically start thinking of Boris Karloff and THE MUMMY, don’t we? Or King Tut and the possibilities of a real-world mummy’s curse. Or both. (For me it’s always simultaneous. In fact the two…Continue readingThe Lost Egyptian City and the “Mysterious” Skeleton
