Romantic for Time Travel

I get very very excited about time travel in any medium of storytelling. It’s one of my greatest real life fantasies to one day travel in time, but also a terrifying prospect. It’s difficult to put words to the excitement, but my blood pressure rises and I feel a rush while at the same time […]

Ned’s Revenge

A clown walked up to the gates of Hell carrying a gallon of gasoline. He was bathed in red light from a big sign that read “HELL.” Before entering, he paused. It was hard to believe that he had built this enormous thing. He and Jane. The first room was meant to look like a […]

Go

Henry is sitting as still as a statue. The morning sun is coming in through the blinds, making bands of light across the patient charts on his desk. His desk phone rings. Henry makes no move to answer. After a moment, there is a polite tapping at his door. Henry stares straight ahead; even his […]

Short Story: Come Alone

Jade called me from a phone number I didn’t recognize. “Come to Arcadia,” she said. “Come alone”. Arcadia is the side of town that burned out years ago. No one wants to go to Arcadia. Not even bums. “It’ll be worth it,” Jade insisted. I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially in Arcadia. But my […]

School Was a Drag

School was a drag. Long hours, boring teachers, and questionable lunch meat. Sure, you had your friends, but you could only really talk during lunch and the brief, 5 minute recess between each class. Too bad most of that 5 minutes was spent dashing to the other end of the school! Saturday School? Even worse. […]

The Penny Dreadful Sandbox

The new Showtime horror series Penny Dreadful needs no gimmicks. The writing, acting, production, etc. are already top-notch. However, in addition to that, there is a wonderfully open-ended sustainability to the show that they’ve set up. They’ve already shown us vampires, ghosts (?), Frankenstein’s monster, and other possible creatures with an only partially-linear construct to […]

Disposed Of: A Highly Unconventional Horror Story by Andrew Bonazelli

Last week, a friend of mine brought to my attention a recently released book called Disposed Of, which immediately caught my attention and compelled me to buy it. Not because of the premise of the story, mind you – which I honestly didn’t even read before I clicked the ‘Order’ button – but rather because […]

Flash Fiction: Bite Your Tongue

“Swallow your tongue, or I will.” She found herself uttering to a reckless man in the middle of a bakery, of all places. The smell of sweet bread and sugared pastries lingered in the air around them, trickling into her nostrils and down her throat, and weaving their way between her abrasive, jagged teeth. She […]

Review: The Night Before Easter

I love spring. Not as much as fall, as that is the time most associated with horror, but spring is enjoyable. Flowers bloom, things start to warm up and, of course, Easter. Not too many horror films take place during the season, but a new one has been added into the fold. The Night Before […]

Flash Fiction: The Witching Hour

It was at the witching hour did she awaken, feeling as if somebody had been sitting over her bed while she was asleep. Yet, when she peered into the darkness, she could make out nothing but the four walls black that surrounded her. It was the witching hour did he awaken, feeling her eyes upon […]
