Book Review: The Flesh of Fallen Angels – Authors Roy C. Booth | R. Thomas Riley

Flesh-of-Fallen-Angels-Booth-Riley

I remember, back in the idealized olden days of yore long forgotten (hence the idealization) by aging brain cells, when you new exactly what you were getting when you picked up a western. Men being men while hunting down the other men who done took their wife or town hostage. Outlaws. Gun slinging sheriffs. Whore houses in trouble. It was a simpler time. Then came these new fangled weird westerns, with their space ships and … Continue reading

Book Review: D.O.A.: Extreme Horror Collection – Editors: David B. Hayes and Jack Burton

DOAantho

Full disclosure: I submitted to this anthology and was rejected. On the other hand, my wife, who allows me access to all her soft and naughty bits, has a story on display within its pages. My hope is that the two cancel each other out and leave a relative sense of objectivity to my review. Just wanted to warn you. Any time you call something “extreme” or “shocking” or any of those clichĂ©d catch-phrases, you … Continue reading

Book Review: Horror Mavericks – Author Danny Draven

horrormavericks

“A big film that has the luxury of a $150 million ad budget will certainly educate the public as to what the title means or what kind of film it is. But when you have no money and you’re at the video store or scrolling down the menu on iTunes or Apple TV, the title has to be understandable so people get it. If you can tell a story without even a log line, you’ve … Continue reading

Film Review: Dolls (1987)

dolls

SYNOPSIS: A group of people stop by a mansion during a storm and discover two magical toy makers, and their haunted collection of dolls. REVIEW: Stop motion is a dying art form, so any time I can see a great old example of it I get pretty excited. I certainly wasn’t expecting to see it in Dolls, which, let’s be honest, from the premise sounds a little silly. Sure large collections of dolls can be … Continue reading

Game Review: Alan Wake

Book Review: Nowhere Hall (Spectral Press) – Author Cate Gardner

nowherehallcoversmall

“Someone stole the world and packed it up in a briefcase.”  We all know how to deal with ghosts (salt, prayers, just move out of the friggin house already), vampires are old hat (stake, decap or wait til sunrise for the sparklies) and no matter what new permutation on zombies you may come up with, we have our plans ready (we won’t go into that). Physical threats are blasĂ©, but many of us have to … Continue reading
