Broken Rule by Joshua Scribner (Book Review)

This is a very short story about two couples who are stranded when their car breaks down and are being chased by something evil. They find a house that has a sign stating that evil cannot enter so they take refuge in it.

This story is probably no more then 10 real pages, if that. On the kindle it actually ends at 80% and the last 20% is a preview chapter of the authors next book. In Kindle language it is 254 “locations” and it ends on location 203... Continue reading

Daybreakers (2009)

Earth's population is up against a vicious plague that's transforming everyone into vampires and draining the world of an increasingly precious resource: blood. Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) and "Elvis" Cormac (Willem Dafoe) must decide what happens next. As the human race count nears zero, will vampires feast on the few men and women who remain, or could science hold the key to a less destructive solution?

I went into this movie not knowing what to expect at all. All I knew was that it was about vampires, and Ethan Hawke was in it. So I was kinda surprised that it was so futuristic and that Ethan Hawke played a vampire. I had stayed away from all information on this movie, so I just had no clue what I was getting into. When it arrived today from Netflix and I read the description I figured I was in for a crappy movie but it ended up being pretty entertaining... Continue reading

Fright Night (2011)

Charley is a high school senior who’s on top of the world—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating Amy, the most coveted girl in school. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a nice guy––at first. But there’s something not quite right, and no one else, including Charley’s mom seems to notice. After his classmates start to mysteriously disappear without a trace, Charlie discovers that there is more to his new neighbor than meets the eye. Now he must do all he can to protect his mom and girlfriend Amy.

When I heard they were remaking this movie I got pissed. I loved the original film. Grew up with it. I even “sorta” enjoyed Fright Night Part 2. I had no idea what to expect out of a remake for this... Continue reading

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

Helter Skelter by Bryan Cassiday (Book Review)

[rating:2/5] Evildoers run riot across the sun-drenched Southern California landscape in Helter Skelter. Zombies, vampires, and other wicked creatures wreak mayhem and carnage in these shocking horror short stories by Bryan Cassiday. Not all of these tales feature supernatural creatures. Some of the evil creatures are human--perhaps the most terrifying creature of all. These stories defy logic, yet they obey their own inexorable logic of fear. Continue reading

Some are funny, some are macabre, and some are just plain spooky. All of them are perfect for telling aloud in the dark or for reading alone…IF YOU DARE! Continue reading

Stan Helsing (2009)

In this horror spoof, Stan Helsing and his friends find themselves up against “The Monsters” (Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Michael Myers, Leatherface, Chucky, and Jason Voorhees) as they attempt to deliver some rental DVDs on the way to a Halloween party.

Running a Friday The 13th site I HAD to rent this film and see what they had Jason do. Well, to be honest, he doesn’t have a huge part (none of the monsters do), but interestingly enough, “Mason” as he’s called in the film is played by Ken Kirzinger who played Jason in Freddy Vs. Jason as well as playing... Continue reading

The Lost Boys (1987)

[rating:5/5] After his brother, Michael (Jason Patric), drinks blood and gets mixed up with a rough biker gang rumored to be a coven of vampires, Sam (Corey Haim) and his two vampire-hunter friends -- armed with garlic and water pistols full of holy water -- try to rid the town of evil. Joel Schumacher directs this cult 1980s classic thriller, which co-stars Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest, Corey Feldman and Edward Herrmann. Continue reading

The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe (2008)

[rating:3/5] When their parents die in a car accident, Chris Emerson (Tad Hilgenbrink) and his sister, Nicole (Autumn Reeser), move to a California beach town to live with their quirky Aunt Jillian, where Nicole falls for a local surfer, who, unbeknownst to her, is a vampire. Soon enough, Chris finds himself battling a whole gang of vampire surfers in an effort to rescue his sister. Corey Feldman co-stars in this sequel to 1987's Lost Boys. Continue reading

Werewolf: The Beast Among Us (2012)

When a mysterious creature terrorizes a village by moonlight, a local young man, Daniel, convinces a team of skilled werewolf hunters to let him join their quest to hunt it down. But as the villagers are attacked one by one and turned into vicious beasts, Daniel begins to fear that his ruthless foe is someone closer than anyone thinks.

I tend to say that Werewolf movies “aren’t my thing” but usually I end up enjoying them. Silver Bullet and Ginger Snaps are probably my two favorite, at least off the top of my head... Continue reading
