Jun 23, 2015 No Comments

Whether it be television, film or literature, mankind’s untimely demise in the form of the apocalypse has been microwaved so many times, it’s long since tasted like rubber. Thankfully, there are authors like Tim Lebbon who can still manage to take an overused theme and breathe fresh air into stale lungs. Lebbon’s novel The Silence […]

Cthulhu Lives! An Eldritch Tribute to H.P. Lovecraft Book Review

Apr 14, 2015 No Comments

In Cthulhu Lives!, editor Salomé Jones brings together many stories for Ghostwoods Books that fall under the vast cyclopean umbrella that is the Cthulhu Mythos.

Mar 12, 2015 No Comments

Back in November, as I was strolling down the corridors of Days of the Dead: Chicago, a very new take on some very classic horror villains caught my eye.  Think Tex Avery on acid.  Imagine Jack Torrance falling into a vat of comic book ink.  This was Angel Onofre’s artwork and it was awesome.  I […]

Book of the Dead Book Review

Mar 03, 2015 No Comments

There is a reason then why Lovecraft did not […]

Read or Else: The Black Train by Edward Lee

Feb 19, 2015 No Comments

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 […]

I’ve never seen a Hong Kong film that wasn’t happy to simultaneously tickle and revolt, to play the low road with blush-worthy sex jokes, all the while quoting Confucius. And of course one cannot forget about the fight […]
