The Last House on the Left (1972): MOVIE REVIEW

If a friend asked me, “Hey, Tommy, can you recommend a good slasher movie?” Off the cuff, I’d typically guide said friend to one of the many wondrous titles under the Friday the 13thfranchise or Nightmare on Elm Street. If they wanted obscure but tasteful, I’d most likely say The Prowler or The Burning. Those looking for something for date… Continue reading The Last House on the Left (1972): MOVIE REVIEW

My First Date with SPAWN

Not to be too weird about it, but imagine yourself for just a moment that you’re a twelve-year-old boy. You’re walking through the store and like any boy of pre-teen age back in the early 90s you decide to go check out whatever comics are offered at this very obviously not comic book store in… Continue reading My First Date with SPAWN

Reflections of an indie writer on 2017

It is customary at the close of a year to look back and reflect on ones accomplishments and ones failures. As writers, we think on the things that made us rise to an occasion and what we utterly fell flat on. What worked and what didn't, so to speak, in our ongoing quest to put… Continue reading Reflections of an indie writer on 2017

Veterans Day Memoir

It's that time of year again, folks. The day we honor our nations soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors. The day we recognize those who have served and put themselves in harms way.

Book Insider: FEAST

Characters are extremely important. Situational development is also equally important. Without solid believable characters or situation all you have is scenery. Pretty scenery combined with poetic languid soliloquy could do the trick for some novels. For others, its detrimental to show the story through the actions of others. Teaching something, questioning something valuable whilst simultaneously entertaining.… Continue reading Book Insider: FEAST

KONG: SKULL ISLAND (2017)

Okay, seriously…have you seen the new Kong? For starters though, i’ll admit I'm rather late to the party. However, as I had the gumption to finally watch the latest of Kong movies, Kong: Skull Island, I felt compelled to write down some of my thoughts regarding said movie.

Return of the Living Dead (1985)

Halloween is almost here. And what better hangout than the graveyard. As a Romero purist, I've found zombie flicks outside Romeroism rules to be...meh. However, there are a select few that defy zombie prejudice. Let's chat a bit about Dan O’Bannon’s Return of the Living Dead. Now, it is important to distinguish who the director of… Continue reading Return of the Living Dead (1985)

BOOKS OF THE DEAD

I think we can all agree that the world of zombie fiction is saturated. Not that we mind, right? What's more fun then feasting on some gory undead fiction? Still, like a line from Ecclesiastes, it certainly feels like there is nothing new that can be added that hasn't already been done. Outside the community of… Continue reading BOOKS OF THE DEAD
