Under Rotting Sky

On April 20th, a book was released that might have flown under your radar. It was from Matthew Brockmeyer, author of Kind Nepenthe, which you may have heard of through some roughly eight thousand glowing reviews. His latest, titled Under Rotting Sky, is an anthology that deserves your attention … now. And that’s a “now”

The Haunted Mansion — Fan Film Trailer

Greetings friends, my name is N.R. Van Slambrouck and I, as much as anybody, want to see the long, oft-rumored Guillermo del Toro Haunted Mansion film. But I think there are several financial reasons why it may not ever happen. In my dismay at thinking the only Haunted Mansion-related film we would ever be privy

Retro SF Review: The Exile, by Alfred Coppel (1952)

Car crashes can happen easily. A simple matter of not following the lanes of the road will do it. But in a world where everyone is forced to stay in their lane, one man tries to veer off the path. “The Exile,” by Alfred Copper (published in Astounding Science Fiction, May 1952), is set eight

Trigger Warning

A question was posed to me: Should there be trigger warnings for horror movies and books? Before I answer, I must state that I have been called out for my lack of trigger warnings on my novel Black Devil Spine. I figured if the book’s description and cover alone did not provide ample warning of

This is Us

After seeing Us I think I can safely say the scariest thing about it was the trailer. I did not hate it, though. In fact, I thought it was a well-done horror film, and I am glad it did well at the box office and resonated with people. I just came out of it feeling

The Crow

25 years ago, The Crow was released. I saw it then, a few more times over the years on VHS, DVD, and now, 25 years later, I’ve just seen it on Blu-ray, with better picture and sound than I’d ever seen it before. Still just as incredibly beautiful and tragic, and I’ve only noticed more

Eastrail 177 Trilogy

I loved every moment of every film (Unbreakable/Split/Glass) in the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. Now that this trilogy is complete, I’m going to have to think long and hard about where it fits into my “Best Movie Trilogies of All Time” list. I think it might actually make the top 10. Of the the 3 movies,

The Trouble With Horror

If you are reading this, I can safely assume you are a horror fan on some level. Why else would you be here when the ‘net has so much porn to offer? I love horror movies, horror books, horror comic books, and just about anything else to which you can attach the “horror” label. I

Send a Hug with Ghosthug

As an extremely independent loner myself, it’s hard to admit that I need other people sometimes. The truth is, while we all need each other, our needs are different from one-another. Some people need a lot of friends and family around them in real life, along with the affection and human touch that generally comes
