100 Feet (2008)

After killing her abusive cop husband, Mike, Marnie returns to New York to serve the remainder of her manslaughter sentence under house arrest. But Mike's vengeful ghost isn't done taunting her in this gripping supernatural thriller. Meanwhile, Mike's ex-partner keeps close tabs on Marnie, who must wear an ankle bracelet that doesn't allow her to escape -- let alone move past a 100-foot radius.

I had come across this a time or two on Netflix but based on the limited description of it, I didn’t bother with it. Then I came across a review on another horror review blog... Continue reading

A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

A re-imagining of the 1984 slasher classic about Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who crosses the boundary between dreams and the waking world to gut his victims with his razor-sharp blade-fingered glove. As Nancy and her friends fight for their lives, they also uncover clues to a shocking secret from their past.

First off, let me say, I’m not a huge fan of the original Nightmare on Elm Street series. Yes, I grew up in the 80s with Freddy, Jason and Michael. But for some reason I just never liked the ANOES series very much... Continue reading

In the second, four teens are stranded on a raft on a lake with a blob that is hungry. And in the third, a hit and run woman is terrorized by the hitchhiker she accidentally killed...

I rented this movie a LOT as a teenager, I loved it. For some reason I didn’t see the first one until I was in my mid to late 20’s, and I wasn’t a huge fan of it... Continue reading

Dead Man Walking by Marty Shaw (Book Review)

Now Griffin, along with a handful of officers and inmates, are trapped within the walls of a prison as a legion of the walking dead stalk them for food. The choice is simple - fight back or die.

Seeing how this is a short story, there isn’t all that much to write about in response to how I liked the story other then saying I loved it... Continue reading

It was going to be a fun summer at Camp Crystal. The young counselors were getting ready for it while they joked about the scary rumors attached to the isolated camp.

This is the novelization to the hit Horror movie Friday The 13th.

These novelizations to the Friday The 13th movies are one of the hardest items to win on Ebay. Unless you are willing to spend $75+ for a good copy... Continue reading

Ghoul (2012)

When a couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery, the legend of a horrific ghoul begins to seem more like reality than myth. Timmy and his friends are forced to confront their worst fears when they unearth long-buried secrets.

I picked this movie up from Redbox based on the description. I had a couple free movie rentals and figured what the heck, if it was bad I got it for free so it was no big deal. I honestly thought it would be fun because it sounded to me like a mix between Stand By Me and IT. It wasn’t... Continue reading
