Interview with LORE Magazine Editor Rod Heather

Dec 16, 2012 No Comments

Admittedly, my review for LORE Magazine is long overdue. In March 2012, I was given an e-copy for review (the October 2011 edition). When you take a look at the dark cover of this issue, filled with skulls, along with gates that guard a castle and a wicked gargoyle looming there, one can easily see […]

Blood Riders Book Review

Dec 09, 2012 2 Comments

Blood Riders by Michael P. Spradlin Review by Dr. Abner Mality It’s no secret that I sunk my fangs into the world of horror at a very young age. My formula bottle was full of blood and my rattles were made of bones. However, my appreciation of the Western took much longer to cultivate. When […]

Dracula Cha Cha Cha Book Review

Nov 18, 2012 No Comments

DRACULA CHA CHA CHA by Kim Newman (Titan Books) In the 7th grade, my English teacher had us read – aloud – the play FLIGHT INTO DANGER by Arthur Hailey. This was an undeniable time-filling exercise, and in the fog of boredom, body odor, and hormones that is the barely-teen male, certain familiarities began to […]

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 […]

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 […]
