Ok, you found your way here looking for some clarity on the whole demon possession thing. Well I’m hear to tell ya…… I don’t type haphazardly (and rather consider the details) . The subject has been analyzed and evaluated to qualify and disqualify common misconceptions.

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

Basically, I am a horror nut. I watch the movies, I look at the magazines, I check out the websites, and I write the stories. Most people limit their horror intake and conservatively save it simply for Halloween time. Not me, I try to employ these fright feelings all year long. This is what I did one time.

Vampire Movie Favourites

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

We have always thought we were different from the rest. We, as in lovers of all things horror, just couldn’t explain our fascination with the macabre. Sure there have been blogs, books and film reviews written. There are even conventions hosted throughout the world that dutifully pay homage to the horror genre and why “we” love it. But, nonetheless, it was pretty obvious that there had to be more behind our passion. There has to … Continue reading

Brainstorm from the Boot Hill: The Day that Buffy Died

Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer_title_card

Yeah, I like Buffy the Vampire Slayer… I didn’t say “liked”, I said “like”… present tense. I realize that the series lasted from 1997 to 2003, but I’ve found myself revisiting the series’ seven seasons often. However, the more I dust off the DVDs, the stronger I feel that instead of Buffy ending in 2003, the series actually died in May of 2001.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) has become a cult … Continue reading

AMC’s The Walking Dead, however, has both entertainment value and mental stimulation in spades. While on the surface it’s only a program about the zombie apocalypse, when you look closer you’ll find it’s … Continue reading
