Godzilla, King of The Monsters Movie Review

Jun 19, 2019 No Comments by

Being a professor of kaijuology, I know a thing or two about giant monsters. Yet, MONARCH never bothered to give me a call. Based on what I see of that organization in Godzilla, King of the Monsters, it’s probably just as well. They don’t seem to know Ghidorah from fedora. But that is neither here […]

Fury from The Tomb: The Institute of Singular Antiquities Book I Review

Mar 13, 2019 No Comments by

It’s true that I am mainly a doctor of medicine (or so it’s been claimed) and I’ve mostly been confined to the laboratory. Yet I’ve always had an interest in archaeology. Digging up stiffs of ancient ages has always had its fascination for me, which explains my love of mummies and archaic curses. In recent […]

“Keep watching the skies!” That was the warning issued at the end of the original Thing from Another World, one of the more notable films that ushered in the age of alien invaders.

Annihilation Movie Review

Mar 21, 2018 No Comments by

There is almost certainly nothing more horrible than your own body turning against you. The thought of the familiar becoming unfamiliar is a universal nightmare; the biology you depended on for everyday living turning into the engine of your destruction. The most common name we use to describe this biological rebellion is cancer. Cancer seems […]

Nov 13, 2017 No Comments by

No special effect ever created can match the power of the human imagination, the ability of the mind’s eye to envision endless possibilities. Or create endless terror. In today’s computer saturated world, it seems hard to believe that people once gathered around the radio as their primary source of entertainment. But for over thirty years, […]

Viy: A Russian Folk Horror Movie

Jul 05, 2017 No Comments by

When it comes to spooky tales of witchcraft and deviltry, Russia and surrounding countries like Ukraine and Belarus should never be overlooked. The old Slavic myths that saturate these countries are brimming with stories of ghosts, forest demons and cannibal witches but are not that well-known here in the West. Well, with me being a […]

Ghosts of Darkness Movie Review

Mar 06, 2017 No Comments by

When I feel low and funky, nothing snaps me out of it more than a good ghost story. It’s the most primal and ancient of all horror genres and I spent many a happy afternoon cruising around looking for abandoned houses to check out in hopes of finding a spook. There are more literary ghost […]

Bone Tomahawk fittingly begins with someone’s throat being cut. Even more fittingly, it leads to an argument ABOUT throats being cut. This gives you an idea of both the merciless violence and pitch-black humor that drives Bone Tomahawk, a bloody tale of the Old West. The dirty swine doing the mayhem is one Mr. Purvis, […]
