A Mystery Is Afoot!

When I wrote my mystery novella a few years back I wrote it in a flurry, trying desperately to get it done before the end of the month so it would be done on time for the publisher. It had been a challenge, writing in a genre I didn't read, and certainly didn't write, but… Continue reading A Mystery Is Afoot!

Two

If you had told me years and years ago that I’d be the father to a two year old I’d look at you as if you had a bear sprouting from your head.  It just wasn’t in my mind, in my thoughts, or in any sort of vague plan I might have had.  The thing… Continue reading Two

Clever Little Bandicoot

I offer to you a response. A response to an HR form letter I received after applying for a job that didn't want a letter of introduction but just a resume. I hate HR departments. They are the same as any gate keeping arm of something - they want the easy way, the fast way,… Continue reading Clever Little Bandicoot

I Won’t Give In To Fear

Say it with me now, I won’t give in to fear.  Doesn’t that feel good? Gets the blood moving.  Gets the spirits up.  HALLELUJAH! The world is a scary place and it is full of rabble-rousers who want nothing more than to weaponize ignorance and fear for their own gain. They want to stoke fear… Continue reading I Won’t Give In To Fear

Happy House Haunting

Let’s just say it - house hunting sucks.  I see now why they refer to it as ‘hunting’ because it really is part luck and part skill to find something that fits your needs and your budget and isn’t a big bag of buffalo donuts.  I got lucky with the house we currently have because… Continue reading Happy House Haunting

SHEDIM – found footage review

If you want to get to my sweet spot for found footage, you want to aim right for the fauxumentaries that are out there. I LOVE when a film can nail that, like POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES does. The idea of people making a doc about something crazy is great. (Not including BLAIR WITCH here because it… Continue reading SHEDIM – found footage review

DAY OF DISAPPEARANCE – found footage review

Any time I am given something a little different in a found footage film I get a little excited. So often we get the same pretty young people doing something they shouldn't and suffering the consequences. Of late they are influencers trying to make a name for themselves by walk to deep into the dark.… Continue reading DAY OF DISAPPEARANCE – found footage review

The Broken Among Us

I get frustrated every time I read a story about another violent, angry young man who is bitter at the world for not giving him what he felt he deserved so he lashes out at people and hurts or kills them out of blind rage.  Angry that he didn’t have a significant other, that he… Continue reading The Broken Among Us

TERROR TRAIN – 2022 – review

TERROR TRAIN has always been one of those third tier slashers that never could get a break. Were it not for a starring turn by Jamie Lee Curtis, it’d have been all but forgotten but for the diehard slasher fans and the horror geeks that look for the most obscure of titles to get excited… Continue reading TERROR TRAIN – 2022 – review

THE THING : The Musical AKA Escape from the Shining Alien Thing From Beyond the Stars (fan edited film) – review

OK, let me get this out of the way first.  I am not a fan of fan edits.  I mean, cool on folks that do them and that enjoy them. It’s basically like a remix, something that was big back in the day and still is around to some degree. What bothers me about it… Continue reading THE THING : The Musical AKA Escape from the Shining Alien Thing From Beyond the Stars (fan edited film) – review

Be Your Own Truth

It gets tiresome, doesn’t it, getting excited for something only to have wave after wave of ‘critic’ squat drop all over it and declaring that thing terrible! I do this all the time to my wife, to her chagrin.  This isn’t a new thing, critics lambasting something and then making sure the world knows their… Continue reading Be Your Own Truth
