This book contains 8 short stories. Each one felt as though it was written by a completely different author, which I suppose is a good thing because it shows the that the author is capable of more then just one type of story... Continue reading

One thing that really annoys me about movies like this, is that nobody seems surprised that there are demons. Or that in the case of this movie there is a talking guy in a statue with pins sticking out of his head, or that he’s sucking them inside the stone. If that was me I wouldn’t be acting like it was an every day event! Continue reading

I saw it many many years ago as a teenager and I just didn’t get the fascination with it. Recently the movie channels have been playing the first three so I decided to DVR them and attempt to get into them again… Continue reading
