Almost Horror, Not Quite

Have you ever read a story that, although it had the right elements to be a horror story, didn’t feel as though it fully fit into the horror category?

The VooDuo, VOODOO U LUV

There aren’t many albums that I listen to from start to finish on my first play. I usually stop, do something completely unrelated to the music at hand and, when a significant amount of time has passed, I come back to finish the album, usually restarting it. Or, worse, the music is so bad that …

You Get Cancelled…

Once upon a time, a man by the name of Jerry G. Bishop played a horror host called “Svengoolie” on Screaming Yellow Theater. Although only on the air from 1970-1973, the series gained a loyal following. One fan by the name of Rich Koz submitted so many sketch ideas to the show that he was …

Review: Popcorn Horror for your phone.

Popcorn Horror http://www.PopcornHorror.com Available for Android and iPhone. Admittedly, I don’t have a lot of horror apps on my phone. And that might not be my fault. I use a Galaxy SII with the Android OS, whose app store is slightly anemic compared to the robust iPhone App store, but each platform has an abundant …

TGIF13 V: How Old Is Jason Voorhees?

Ages ago on Twitter, I once read a Tweet idly wondering how old is Jason Voorhees is supposed to be. Not how old the character is in terms of his place in pop culture, but literally how old the slasher is in terms of the franchise’s continuity. Anyone who’s seen the fourth film, Friday the …

Joss is Less or some stupid title.

I don’t like the work of Joss Whedon because I think his storytelling relies far too much on the complex, over-reaching ideas/ arcs than focusing on the basic principles. I think he values being clever more than being good. Further research into Cabin In The Woods ultimately sank a prior post I had previously written, …
