The Savage Amicus: Robert Bloch in the Movies Part Two

Oct 21, 2014 No Comments by

More than anything else, Robert Bloch’s career is a testament to perseverance. His autobiography, along with the numerous mini-bios and write-ups about him that populate the internet, are testaments to the fact that writers are workers, no exception. And a lesser worker than Bloch would’ve been put off from the film industry long before Great […]

Motivational Growth tells the story of Ian Foliver, a completely broken and reclusive schmuck who lives in an apartment that would make even the filthiest couch potato break out in hives.  While going through his “recognition of self-worthlessness process,” Ian decides it’s time to end it all.  While concocting a life-ending potion in the bathtub, […]

Discovering P.T. and an Early Glimpse at Silent Hills

I recently found myself the owner of a PS4 – a joyous occasion in that it replaced my dead Xbox 360 for the purposes of streaming movies, but a bit disappointing as the PS4 game selection is currently rather bare. So imagine my delight when, roaming through the downloads and demos, I found what appeared […]

Butterfly Skin Book Review

Sep 30, 2014 No Comments by

Russian literature, or at least the type you might read in college, is known for its intensity and mountains of cerebral ramblings on all things unanswerable. From Dostoevsky to Bulgakov, the best Russian writers don’t deal with miniatures or micro narratives. The Brothers Karamazov somehow manages to tackle both familial relations and the heart of […]

Straightjackets and Sleepwalkers: Robert Bloch in the Movies Part One

Sep 16, 2014 No Comments by

When Robert Bloch came to Hollywood in the early 1960s, he did so as an already accomplished and acclaimed author. In this regard, Bloch was nothing new. Plenty of writers, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner, had chosen a similar career path. But unlike Fitzgerald, who washed out in Hollywood as an alcoholic […]

Sledge Movie Review

Sep 11, 2014 No Comments by

The horror comedy is a venerable genre in its own right. For as long as there have been horror films, there have been movies spoofing them – from Abbott and Costello facing the black-and-white movie monsters to Cabin in the Woods and Knights of Badassdom toying with our expectations of the genre, these movies are […]
