I Love Creepshow

The title really says it all, but I’ll elaborate. I must have been 11 or 12 when I first watched Creepshow. My grandmother had rented some scary movies for me in early October of that year and most of them were classics I’d seen before. One film in that stack though was new to me,

Submit Your Dead Pet to the Digital Pet Sematary

I previously shared the story of the death of my own dog, Buck. I’ve never felt a greater pain before it or since. There’s such an incredible bond between humans and non-human animals, that seems to transcend the closeness that even two humans can achieve together (at least for me). It’s a powerful bond that

Cujo

As a novel, Cujo works. There is some clutter to it, sure, but overall it keeps the tension ratcheted very high and has a satisfying end. For a story that is essentially about a woman and a child trapped in a car it sure packs a punch. Even the film did a fine job, getting

All The Rage

If you are a Stephen King fan, you know of Rage. It is a novel about a teenager who takes his class hostage and shoots his teacher. I first read the novel in The Bachman Books, which King wrote under the Richard Bachman pseudonym. It is not King’s best work, but it is a fascinating

Event Horizon

I have been into horror for as long as I can remember. I believe my love of the genre started when I was a little boy watching the creature double features with my dad on Saturday afternoons. He would often fall asleep on the couch while I was left watching things like The Thing With

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”

Castle Rock Season Finale: Is “The Kid” Good or Evil?

At the end of the season one finale of Castle Rock, we’re left with two options that the creators of the show leave to our own interpretation: Option A. He’s evil. After being forced into the woods at gunpoint by white Henry, black Henry is able to overtake him and get the gun. We then

Let’s Talk About IT: Part II 🎈

Thank you Stephen King and Steven Weber. Thank you for the best storytelling experience, of any medium, I’ve ever had. My face is still dried out with tears as I write this. Thank you Stephen for writing the damn thing of course, and thank you Steven for the 45-hour-long reading! That’s right, I only made

Complete List of Monsters That IT Took the Form Of 🎈

I’ve finally finished the book, carefully making note of all the monsters that IT appears as throughout. Hopefully this manages to be the complete, definitive list. Please let me know if I somehow missed anything! Clown Shark (from JAWS — my personal favorite and the fear that IT would use against me) Frankenstein’s Monster Dracula
