Setup vs. payoff. Horror fans, you know it well. Basically that means the shit you have to put up with to get to the good stuff. Horror, more than any other genre, sees a lot of crap put out to make a quick buck. Sure, roller disco aficionados have XANADU, and 14-year-old male boob enthusiasts […]

Sherlock Holmes: The Army of Dr. Moreau Book Review

Aug 26, 2012 2 Comments

It started in second grade, when my parents rented me the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce Hound of the Baskervilles.  I liked it, but I don’t remember much now except that Rathbone’s Holmes was a consummate English gentleman and Bruce’s Watson was an idiot.[1]  I liked Granada Television’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (aired Stateside on PBS’s […]

The Hand Of Fu-Manchu Book Review

Jul 19, 2012 No Comments

I recently watched Disney’s PETER PAN again for the first time in a long while. I could tell you that this was because there’s a 3 ½-year old in my life, but that would be a lie. My robust knowledge of the intricacies and mythology of the DORA THE EXPLORER-verse, however, is another story. But […]

The Killing Floor Book Review

Jul 12, 2012 No Comments

For all you mutant loving, post apocalyptic pondering, survivalist zombie fans out there, The Killing Floor is one of the few books you’ll want to take with you down into your bomb shelters and not want to scrap for fire kindling. When you begin reading the story, you might think that it’s just another zombie […]

Where the Dead Fear to Tread Book Review

Jul 01, 2012 No Comments

M.R. Gott’s Where the Dead Fear to Tread is a cross between a supernatural slasher story and a pulpy noir crime drama—sort of like if Max Payne were directed by a young Clive Barker. The story opens with a highly pornographic and gorily detailed description of two young parents going at it before the main […]

Evil Eternal Book Review

Jun 17, 2012 No Comments

In the eternal struggle between Good and Evil, Hunter Shea’s Evil Eternal (Samhain Publishing) is not the first book to portray the world-rending battles fought between the infernal legions and the divine forces for our immortal souls; however, this was certainly among the most interesting that I’ve read. While my Quantum Gnosticism generally leads me […]

Anno Dracula + The Bloody Red Baron Book Reviews

May 06, 2012 1 Comment

Vampires have remained popular, more or less, for the past hundred years or so. By that I mean there’s been no time where people were saying en masse, “Say, what are these ‘vampires’ of which you speak? They drink what now?” But a couple of years ago, boy, you couldn’t throw a bulb of garlic […]

Plague Town: An Ashley Parker Novel Review

Apr 08, 2012 2 Comments

Last week, author Dana Fredsti’s Plague Town: An Ashley Parker Novel was unleashed upon unsuspecting horror fans by a sinister entity known as Titan Books.  And while Ashley Parker deserves top billing, the novel is, in fact, a full on zombie book.  Scared yet?  Another.  Zombie.  Book.  Now, before you start moaning and groaning (like […]

Haunted: Eleven Tales of Ghostly Horror Book Review

Nov 19, 2011 No Comments

I think ghost stories are the hardest kind of horror to write.  I love body horror, but it’s easier; a disease that causes you to sprout hands in random places, a woman with shark heads instead of breasts. . . .Sure it’s creepy, but there’s something a little Mr. Potato Head about it: stick enough […]
