    Movie Review: 'Slender Man' Horror in Truly Bad Taste

    Movie Review: 'Slender Man' Horror in Truly Bad Taste

    As soon as Slender Man cropped up in cinemas in 2018 I was told that I was mistaken for accusing the movie of utilizing the attempted homicide of a young girl to sell the movie. This was when I reviewed the movie on the radio. A fan said that it wasn't consequential by virtue of the story of the movie Slender Man not being the same as the real life tragedy. The action of the film casts the Slender Man as another in a long line vaguely ill-defined supernatural villains such as The Bye Bye Man or whatever the creature was in the Sinister franchise.

    Ghost Hunting

    Ghost Hunting

    Before I lived at 4938 W. Wescott Dr, Glendale Arizona 85308 I never believed in Ghosts and Ghouls let alone bad entities. My first experiences at this house were when my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. The activity started after the Hogekins Lymphoma came back after he was cancer free for several months. There was one afternoon when I came in from being outside smoking and as I passed by a short set of stairs leading down to the third level of the house I saw the full bodied apparition of my Grandfather with whom I had never met due to him being killed in the line of duty while fighting for our country in WWI. I had only seen photos of him before he went to war and a photo of him with his platoon. To see a full bodied apparition of my Grandfather startled me at first but I wasn't scared due to the fact that I knew he was there for my Dad. As the cancer became worse for my Dad; we all prepared for the inevitable, which was his passing. There was one day however, when he was in his room resting on the bed with the door cracked. I didn't go up to the 3rd floor, rather I went into the front room and looked up the stairs to see his door cracked and my Grandmother standing in his room looking out into the hallway. Although I didn't want to see my Dad pass away from such a terrible disease I knew by seeing my grandparents at different times that when the day came my dad would be in good hands as his parents' came to take him home.

    Hell's Bells

    Hell's Bells

    My favorite mental escape has been, as of late, coming home after the gym, and popping on my audio book of The Hellbound Heart, the quintessential horror novella of the mid-1980's that inspired the long-running Hellraiser horror franchise, making macabre wunderkind Clive Barker into an international celebrity and a bestselling author, as well as a much-applauded director. (He's also a graphic artist, and began his career as such.)

    "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley

    "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley

    I read “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley primarily because it was on the syllabus for GCSE Literature whilst I was at school. I found it on a reading list online and thought I would spend the summer trying to understand the angles of it, even if we didn’t study it - I thought it was a good exercise in my ability to read and understand an older text. I was thirteen years’ old and it would prove one of the most intense experiences of my life. It took me only one day to read the entire book. I just could not drag myself away from these extensive narratives. Over ten years’ later when I would be in the midst of teaching this book, I found I had the same passion and the same vigour for the novel I had felt in my teen years. It made me feel almost so young again. This book would become to a thirteen year old what a best friend that accepts a freak becomes to the freak. It became a statement of power. It became to me what I had never really had too much of before - it would become my friend. Especially the Monster. The Monster would be my very best friend.

    There's Someone Inside Your House

    There's Someone Inside Your House

    This book is every person’s nightmare turned into a reality. Whether you believe in intuition or not, everyone has those moments in life when you feel as though you are being watched, as if there is someone just out of your line of sight that is keeping tabs on your every move. Some people feel this more strongly than others, and for those of us, myself included, who feel this so strongly that the hairs stand up on the back of our necks, I would offer a word of caution before reading this book; this book takes the illusion of your home representing safety and security and smashes it to pieces. A lifetime of horror movies have taught me to trust my intuition and that you never investigate mysterious sights/sounds, especially if it’s coming from your dark, musty basement.

    My ex lover

    My ex lover

    The autumn air was crisp, much like the pain he felt from his darling wife earlier that day when she slapped him across the face. He hadn’t meant to upset her, it was just that she shouldn't have come home so early. That wasn’t the plan. The plan was for her to come home on Thursday. It was only Tuesday. That's what happens when you mess with the plan. Things go bad quickly. I still remember the shocked look upon her face, when she walked in on me and her father. She knew I was always fond of him, I guess she just didn’t realize how much. I didn’t want her to find out of course, but I couldn't hold in my desire any longer. It was killing me. How could I spend the rest of my days married to his daughter, and never be able to feel his touch on my skin, never be able to kiss his tender lips, never be able to feel him inside me, exploding with pleasure. Damn her mother. If only she hadn’t gotten sick. You know, it’s always got to be about her doesn’t it? She always has to have her way, no matter what the circumstances are. She never liked me, she never cared about me the way that he did, my most dearest Laurence.

    The story of my demon.

    The story of my demon.

    I didn't understand, but I guess no one could at that age. I'm not sure anyone does, or ever will. For me, it all began 10 years ago. I was 15 years old. Brand new to texas from a little town called Searcy ar. My mother rented a house near lake Texoma. I had always known my mother to be a very spiritual person. I saw her circling the house with something burning in a bowl. She was sprinkling water around all the windows and doors. I didn't think a lot of it at the time. Seeing that really sparked my interest. On one particular night, I'm up wandering the house. I see an unusual looking chest filled with books id never seen. Along with the sage, and the crystals. I decide to take a read. I didn't understand that by me opening that book, I opened up something that would change the course of my life. My understanding and wisdom of what a human is truly capable of. also understanding things unseen. Odd things started to happen to me. I can feel the chills up my spine thinking about it. porcelain elephants being flung off the walls at me. Voices and unsettling fear without reason. I slept on top of the house most nights because I was afraid. I didn't understand. Upon the morning time, my mother noticed her spiritual books gone through. She asked me " did you read my books". I responded with the truth. She asks me " are you ready for your first lesson" I knew she was speaking of rituals. I said yes.We proceed to go onto the back porch. She says to me " if I teach u these things u have to promise to use them for good. Not evil. I was thinking about my self. I'm gonna go get some money a do more sinister things with this info. She immediately read my mind and stormed back into the house. Without me saying a word, she knew. Turns out when my mother blessed the house and put boundaries up to deflect negative spirits, she trapped a spirit in this house..her name was sparky. She still dwells inside that house. I was so young and vulnerable. This angry spirit used me for 10+ years. Used my soul as a gateway to free itself. Throughout the years it came to wear on me more and more. I tried telling my dad. I pleaded to anyone with an open ear. I began to think I was insane. On top of the sleep depravity and lack of food due to meth, I realized how lost I was. Even sober I would hear things, see things. I almost convinced my self that I was going insane. The years go by and I continue to live with being crazy. About 100 days ago is when I made a believer out of whoever doubted me. I'm crying already looking through my phone, thinking...there is not 1 person who gives a damn right now. 12:00 I hear the church bells ring from the motel I was living at. My mother calls me.I start crying even harder because I've lost my mind, my soul, and my will. I hang up and proceed to pick my bible up for the first time in months.I reach down and see a piece of paper sticking out of the top of it. I grab it and over and over and over it phrases demonic spirits. It scares the crap out of me. So immediately I throw this paper across the room. I look down at the table an see a paper with the same handwriting and it says " TO FILL THE EMPTINESS INSIDE YOU SEARCH FOR THE WORD OF GOD" I immediately start really panicking. I call my mother. She takes me to a spiritual doctor. This woman with years of experience tells me " I have to protect myself self" also saying that if I didn't get rid of whatever spiritual issues I was dealing with I would be dead soon. My mother and I then go to see a priest. Father DON. He looks me in the eye, and tells me I have a demonic spirit dwelling within my body. He calls the angels Michael and Gabriel and hits me with holy water. I plummeted to the ground in tears. For the first time in YEARS, I had the confirmation I needed. That I wasn't crazy. That night I go back to my room and go to sleep. A friend wakes me up at 10 pm. We sit and we pray all night long...She leaves at about 10 the next morning, she asks me whats that on ur leg. I look and it was the worst bruise I've ever seen. I proceed to raise up my , and 3 scratch marks on my rib cage.The last thing I remember was looking around the room I was in. Blood was everywhere I had destroyed everything and almost my self.I immediately check my self into the nearest hospital, Thanking god I'm alive. I'll never fully grasp what happened to me that day. But one thing I realize Is that my faith in the lord is stronger than it ever been...The story of my demons.!

    COVID Crisis Wreaks Havoc On Upcoming Horror Film Release Date 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'

    The writer, director, and producer of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' has informed us of a delayed date for the film release. After preparing for a release date of June 2, 2020 to all major digital platforms and cable, the film release has been postponed until later in the month. While an exact date has not yet been confirmed between Gravitas Ventures and 3rd Fathom Films, fans should anticipate the film to be available late June or early July. The film had to abandon theaters earlier this year after businesses began to shut down due to the severity of the Coronavirus pandemic. It's unfortunate to announce that the film is being affected by yet another setback under the constantly changing circumstances. While the delay is disappointing, Gravitas Ventures and 3rd Fathom films hope to have a new release date announcement soon. Fans can expect more information to circulate about this film as Gravitas Ventures and 3rd Fathom Films plan a new target date for the release.

    Dr. Spain's Horror Review: "Ghost of Camp Blood"

    I’d like to preface this by saying that I have seen a lot of bad films in my life. There’s a certain part of me that has a self-destructive need to discover movies of surpassingly poor quality, and that’s given me a real insight into just how terrible a work of visual medium can be while still qualifying as a film. I’m saying this because I want to provide a good level of context for the second part of this sentence when I say that Ghost of Camp Blood is not only the worst film I’ve ever seen in my life, but also the worst thing that’s ever personally happened to me.

    Grandma lost her mind.

    Sometimes I wonder if staying up late to watch horror movies is a bad thing. This may sound like a cliché because when I do, I end up having to turn the hall light or bathroom light on, that way I’ll be able to fall asleep. Sometimes nightmares feel really in so many ways. The one thing I hate about nightmares is that when I do wake up in the middle of the night due to a nightmare then fall asleep, instead of going into a different dream, the nightmare just continues where it had left off.

    Penny Dreadful: City of Angels

    One of the best shows to date was inspired by the original horror comics. Penny Dreadful, or bloods, were cheap violent novels that were popular during the mid-to-late Victorian England. They were more or less eight pages per installment. During their time they were considered second rate and gory. Writer G.K. Chesterton was a avid defender of the up and coming genre. Chesterton argued that the novels were "the most moral part of the modern fiction." (https://www.britannica.com/art/penny-dreadful)

    The Haunting

    The Haunting

    Did anyone else get shivers up their skin as they watched the popular TV show, You? If you have not seen this show, I suggest watching it, and then blowing your brains out with paranoia. The idea of You begins with a woman purchasing a book with a credit or debit card at a bookstore. Then, that innocent act tumbles out of proportions by a deranged man who thinks he is in love, but ends up destroying the girl's life. The chances of anyone having that happen to them are low. Like most people, I cannot name how many times I have used my card to pay for an item at the store. Until I saw You, I would of never second guessed the common act, or the act of giving out my name. I never realized what I could find out based on a name, until I began to proceed in some research.

Or a story the police made up to keep all of the kids in town out of the woods that borders the town.
