Fright Night 2: New Blood (2013)

Studying abroad in Romania, high schoolers Charley and Ed must stop a sexy vampire's chilling plan to bathe in the blood of a "new moon virgin" -- who happens to be Charley's ex-girlfriend. The guys enlist the help of a vampire-hunting TV show host.

After the disaster of Fright Night the remake, I didn’t think this sequel to the remake could be much better. And other then some obvious flukes, it was actually the better of the two. That’s saying a lot since it was filled with a bunch of nobodies, and it was obviously NOT a sequel. No way it could have been. Continue reading

Corktown by Ty Hutchinson (Book Review)

In the quiet Corktown neighborhood of Detroit, a mutilated body has the residents nervous and for good reason. Detroit Metro Police recognize the handiwork of the serial killer known as the Doctor. But there’s a problem with that. They locked him up seven years ago. Because of her expertise with serial killers, FBI agent, Abby Kane, is tasked with figuring out how this madman is able to kill again. When she visits The Doctor behind bars, he swears he’s innocent and not the psychopath everyone thinks he is. Oddly enough, Abby believes him.

I got this one to review for free from NetGalley awhile back and just finally finished reading it. I’m not 100% sure how I felt about it either... Continue reading

Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Dexter #1) by Jeff Lindsay (Book Review)

Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep's clothing. He's handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He's a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened -- of himself or some other fiend.

I thought I’d give the “Dexter” book series a read since I’ve enjoyed the Showtime TV series since it first aired. I had heard that the book series was very different then the TV show. Which is ok with me. I enjoy comparing books to the TV/Movie adaptations, and often seek out book adaptations. Continue reading
