The Spooky Chris Podcast – Horror Updates

In which I talk about going to horror cons and seeing some newer horror movies. Theme by Ross Grimson

Gun Runner

It takes only a cursory look at the news of the past few years to see a horrible trend and that is one of (mostly)White homeowners taking the Stand Your Ground and Castle Defense to the limits of the law and opening fire at every imagined threat. While I am sure there are always instances… Continue reading Gun Runner

The Right Person

It’s a bit of a fact that the older we get the more our bodies start to show the effects of the wear and tear. We start to see, and more importantly feel what our lives have wrought on our bodies. Those late nights in our teens, the partying in our twenties, the out late… Continue reading The Right Person

The Customer Is Always Wrong

What the heck happened? There was a time that, though lacking, customer service was still a thing.  Those days though seem long gone now as we have entered the post-Covid world of Meh.  If you ask the corporations they tell you it’s the workforce.  If you ask the workers they’ll tell you it’s the customers. … Continue reading The Customer Is Always Wrong

Performance Art

There’s something obscenely performative about Republican outrage.  Something a bit theatrical, like a child’s tantrum, in how their ire is raised whenever something offends them.  The anti-cancel culture movement canceling everything that dares to disrupt their vision of the world.  Their narrow, sad, gated off vision.  I dunno of anything more childish than grown men… Continue reading Performance Art

Singing The Stories Of Our Lives

I have had my mind on the end lately.  The end of us and who we are.  The end of our personal stories in the book with no conclusion.  My thoughts are on the ending of our story and how few people will ever hear it.  Few will hear our triumphs and our failures.  Few… Continue reading Singing The Stories Of Our Lives

Taking Our Art Away

Look, I get tired of political posts too but darn it, we’re in highly political times so, it is what it is.  I’d much rather write about nerdy movie junk but there’s not that much on my mind of late, other than my feeling that ‘90’s action schmaltz has aged poorly.  Anyway.  There’s a scary… Continue reading Taking Our Art Away

They’re Dead, They’re All Messed Up

When it comes to horror it seems as if it has been dissected and bisected and pulled apart and examined under the brightest lights. Every movie that comes out is part of a subgenre or a subsubgenre. It falls into this category or is dropped into that bucket.  When it comes to horror, we fans… Continue reading They’re Dead, They’re All Messed Up

The Doom Of Geekdom

I was a STAR WARS kid growing up.  I had the toys, I loved the movies, and I imagined that universe and its people all of the time. I wondered what Episodes 1, 2, and 3 might be (since we started, it turned out, with part 4) and wondered where it’d all lead.  I don’t… Continue reading The Doom Of Geekdom

The It’s Not Fair Party

It’s strange to see so many adults acting like children but here we are.  Welcome to 2023.  It seems silly to read about fellow Americans wanting to expand the footprint of their state because others in their party that live in the neighboring state feel disenfranchised.  It seems ridiculous to read about a governor so… Continue reading The It’s Not Fair Party

Who Have You Become

It occurred to me today that I am not sure how the teenage me would react to the middle aged me.  I wondered how the kids I was friends with would see me.  I wondered how the friends I had even in my twenties that I may not have now would see me.  Who have… Continue reading Who Have You Become

NIGHTLIGHT – “found footage”/POV movie review

OK, this is a ‘found footage’ in that it’s done in the same style but it’s not a found footage movie for real-real, one of the many frustrating things that the film has to offer. While this is not really found footage I am calling it that because of the style and presentation. It’s wearing… Continue reading NIGHTLIGHT – “found footage”/POV movie review
