Book Review: The Undead Situation – Author Eloise J. Knapp

knapp-the-undead-situation

The Undead Situation Eloise J. Knapp Permuted Press I don’t know about you, but I’m really getting tired of genre novels written in the first person. Genre novels, for the most part, work best when the story unfolds via an unaffected third person narrative. The first person narrative is great for getting a sense of character across, but not so great for moving the story along. This is the case here with The Undead Situation. … Continue reading

Game Review: Saints Row: The Third

SaintsRowTheThird2

Saints Row: The Third is the most over the top, perverted and action-packed game I’ve ever played. The game constantly throws pop culture references at you, and each mission seems to be more ridiculous than the last, even when you think it couldn’t possibly get any crazier. If you’re unfamiliar with the Saints Row series, you should know that it’s a sandbox, action shooter series much like the Grand Theft Auto series. The main difference … Continue reading

I believe the message that is being sent loud and clear is that Zombies are all the rave. And…. in the respect … Continue reading

Top 10 Zombie Films Worth Your Time

Zombie-movies-horrornews.net

I sit to begin this list with the background noise of Romero’s Day of the Dead playing, and it’s a great flick to have as motivation for putting together a list like the one I’m about to compile. It’s not a part of this list, which is no slight; this list isn’t necessarily about the best, most common or most loved zombie flicks. If it was, Day of the Dead would probably be around #6 … Continue reading
