THE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 9

Brian looked over and saw Dave staring back at him. Dave without his eyes. “Come, little thing,” the Darkness said. “There is much more to see.” Brian followed as it led him out of the rain (more like freezing piss) and around the last of the cannibals with their pitiful undying victims. The woods grew…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 9

Revisiting the Classics: CASTLE FREAK

Reports that a remake of this Full Moon classic is floating around out there prompted me to give this one another watch recently. Here are some ruminations engendered by this viewing. You know, Full Moon has gifted the world with a lot of great movies. It’s just that most of them are great *bad* movies.…Continue readingRevisiting the Classics: CASTLE FREAK

THE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 8

A bullet whined over Gale’s head, others colliding with the leaves and bark of trees around them. From somewhere close behind came angry voices, cursing and shouting. Looking back, Gale caught a glimpse of dark skin and fatigues moving amidst the trees. “They’ve caught up!” she wheezed, increasing her speed. For Deb’s part, fear and…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 8

GROUNDHOG DAY and Vampires

That’s GROUNDHOG DAY the movie, not the holiday. Although the movie was inspired by the holiday. And turns out it was inspired by vampires, too. I admit that I didn’t see a connection at first either. If I’d stopped to think about it, I would’ve latched on to the whole “immortality” thing. If one lives…Continue readingGROUNDHOG DAY and Vampires

Vampire Cats?

It’s a common piece of Southern folklore. I’m not sure how pervasive it is in other areas, but I expect it’s well known across the board. My grandparents told me when I was a little boy that a cat will “suck out” a baby’s breath and kill it, imbuing felines with a sort of satanic…Continue readingVampire Cats?

“So why aren’t you trying to kill me now?” Brian asked. “You can’t, can you?” “Your flesh lies beyond My reach for the moment,” the Darkness said. “But make no mistake, little thing. It will not always be so.” “You don’t scare me,” Brian said. “Save your lies, little thing. I can taste your fear.…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 7

THE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 6

Brian opened his eyes. Above him, the sky glowed a bloody crimson behind a veil of smoke. He lay on his back, the ground beneath him bare and hard, the color of ashes. He sat up, stood, looked around. The black, leafless trees of some strange woodland surrounded him. He examined himself, his ruined T-shirt…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 6

THE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 5

With a shrill, even effeminate scream, the guard tried to evade the arms that reached for him. Like an adult with a small child, the thing seized him, lifting him off the ground. A monstrous, disproportioned hand clamped over his face. The guard ceased struggling. “Fuck!” the driver yelped. “Fuck! Fuck!” “…respond?” the voice over…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Four: A GUIDED TOUR OF THE ABYSS, DISCOUNT PRICED Chapter 5

More Vampirella News

I’ve often said that I have the perfect job. I get paid to talk about (i.e. write about) things that interest me, to review movies and books that I would watch or read anyway, and visit places that I would go to anyway. I count myself really fortunate. Alas, no job is perfect *all* the…Continue readingMore Vampirella News

Much better to let any victim speak for himself/herself/themselves, so that’s what I’ll do here. Take it away, Charisma. “…based on the open letter I wrote, you now know about the psychological abuse I endured while acting on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I shared my experiences about my former boss, Joss Whedon, so…Continue readingCharisma Carpenter Speaks

Looking Back to the Beginning

Hard to believe it’s been a year now since all this began. None of us knew last March at this time just what lay ahead. I’ve been one of the lucky ones thus far. The year of pandemic has been relatively painless for me personally, with one very notable exception. I had a cousin succumb…Continue readingLooking Back to the Beginning
