Predator: If It Bleeds Book Review

Nov 28, 2017 No Comments by

Your enjoyment of the new Predator story collection, If It Bleeds–edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt–will depend in part on your enjoyment of the Predator movie franchise.  Personally, I think the original is a timeless classic and the sequel with Danny Glover is better than most people give it credit for, but still flawed in many […]

My Soul to Keep Book Review

Mar 13, 2017 No Comments by

As someone who is a horror fan with very specific tastes (I never dug Friday the 13th), who later crafted horror stories (that no one wanted to buy), and then became a reviewer of the genre, sometimes it’s necessary to recognize that a specific film or novel, while not for you, still has great potential […]

Blood of the Tribades Movie Review

Feb 13, 2017 No Comments by

Written and directed by the spousal team of Sophia Cacciola and Michael J. Epstein, Blood of the Tribades is an ambitious throwback to the exploitive yet still artistic genre flicks of the 1970s.   Taking inspiration from directors such as Jean Rollin and Jess Franco, Cacciola and Epstein have created a world with a vivid and […]

Vampyres Movie Review

Oct 26, 2016 1 Comment by

I’m a fan of scary movies.  I set out regularly to find flicks that creep the hell out of me.  And if you found your way to Ravenous Monster you probably are too.  I’m also a fan of Gothic films that create a nearly palpable ambiance that suck you in to a dark world.  A […]

Aliens: The Set Photography Book Review

Aug 17, 2016 No Comments by

So before I get the review, which I will, I need to issue a disclaimer.  I am the type of Aliens fan that owned the series on VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray.  I am the type of fan who bought the Loot Crate 30th Anniversary Box, and was a bit disappointed none of the contents had […]

Darkness Rising Novella Review

Sep 15, 2015 No Comments by

I’ve become quite a fan of Brian Mooreland over the years. From Vagrants to The Devil’s Woods, I have yet to be let down by his stories. Mooreland’s smooth prose draws you in yet it never feels like he is writing down to his audience. The best way to describe Brian Mooreland’s latest novella Darkness […]

Read or Else: The Black Train by Edward Lee

Feb 19, 2015 No Comments by

You feel the dried page against your finger and hear a subtle crack as you gingerly turn it.  The book’s spine is stiff and you look down, taking in the yellowed paper.   In the dimly lit room you smile coyly to yourself.  The book is well-worn; others have held it before you and felt the […]
