    My stop

    Hello there, my name is jado, I was born in the year 2078. I am 13 years old. My grand parents had recently past away. They were the definition of true love, My grandma: mbaye and grandfather: morales. The love they had for each other was nothing but truth and trust with a little bit of too much lust, if you know what I mean mean “wink wink”. Well anyways, I am here to tell you my story and truth be told, it is nothing but luck, horror and romanticity-ish. Comedy is sure to be in it as well... hopefully not.

    A Gory Story

    My whole body had gone numb with fear. It was impossible to focus. I sat there, shivering in my suit, damp with sweat. I looked down at the little box I was confined in, then up to the judge’s menacing glare, and finally back over to the prosecutor.

    The Hunt

    The Hunt

    The hunter bursts inside his small worn down house, eager to get out of the frigid weather. The shingles are falling apart faster than they can be repaired, cold air blowing in through every crevice. He tries to light a fire, with the hope of thawing his frozen home. Each gust of wind make that flame more and more impossible to obtain. His game fresh from the hunt, hangs outside waiting to be skinned and cooked. When was the last time he has eaten? He thinks back to the days when his son would join him on their annual hunting trip. Them laughing and reliving old memories of previous hunts. His son’s first perfect shot, in the centre of a moose’s heart.

    Deadcon - review (Netflix)

    It is twenty-twenty and a new decade. My reviewing output has slowed of late due to a few factors; working a lot more. Christmas. Not visiting the cinema that much and, considering I generally review Netflix output, a paucity of anything that I found remotely interesting over the festive period on the streaming service.

    11 Best Horror Movies from the 1950s

    11 Best Horror Movies from the 1950s

    The 1950s were a period of time where horror started to become a part of the consciousness of the American population. It wasn't quite something that was taken seriously as it would become in the 1960s, but it was still certainly fun. In this blog, I'll be talking about the best 11 horror movies from that beginning era. They're not entirely in order, except for the first one.

    Fear and Fiction

    Fear and Fiction

    When we discuss horror in literature, there are several things to keep in mind. What are the cultural currents of the time? What is its era? What characterizes the fear which might be felt by those special few who vie for terror? It is with the mind towards these questions that we should look at horror, viewing it with the strong views that Lovecraft did. He attached horror to several themes present within his own time—in particular eugenics, quantum mechanics, and theosophy. These different themes influenced the way he viewed horror and the way his society would receive his horror. The difficulty of modern times is analyzing how horror should go forwards. We have seen the H. P. Lovecrafts, and Edgar Allan Poes, and Stephen Kings.

    Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey (Book Review)

    Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey (Book Review)

    Just before Christmas I did what I usually do. Scour Amazon (UK) for new books, DVDs, Signed CDs, or whatever takes my fancy. This year was difficult. Having already spent what felt like a small fortune on books; hardbacks, limited editions signed copies, self published, traditionally published and secondhand. I was looking to pick up a few on the cheap. (Greatest achievement was a hardback at £0.88, and a very well reviewed crime thriller from J.D Robb for £1.30).

    Cradle and All

    Cradle and All

    James Patterson is an author that has used words to go global. I read his fictional novel Cradle & All out of curiosity and was taken through a wild perspective with criminal fiction, religion, and conspiracy theories. Patterson has been labeled as one of the world’s richest authors, he has had most of his pieces in The New York Times Bestseller's list. The idea of playing on the story of the recurring Virgin Mary and Virgin Satanist is diabolical. As I read the story, I was literally scared to read the next page because of how gruesome the details were. It was almost as if the story was real but I had to break away from the novel and remember it was a fictional story.

    Getting the Best Deal Offers on Halloween

    The countdown is coming to an end for the biggest event of the year. It’s October, and all the hype, madness, and craziness has started. It is that time of the year when people celebrate with all the joy, and show off the inside monsters they have been hiding for the whole year. You will see lanterns glowing in your neighbor’s house. You will see people dressed up in scary and eerie costumes, or children celebrating their day with trick or treat party, while others may be enjoying their day carving pumpkins like never before. The celebrations are everywhere.

    The Demon

    The demon wakes me in my sleep again, the weight of her presence weighing me down, pressing me into the bed. It’s always different when I wake up on a night like this. I always know when she’s there. I hold onto my breath. I scan the room until I see it, her hunched figure perching in the corner on top of my desk. A paper falls to the floor.

    Slender-Man Almost Got Me

    Slender-Man Almost Got Me

    One day my dad told me a scary story about this man-like creature called slender-man. He has no face and he has eight long arms that come out of his back. At first, I didn't believe him but after hearing a lot of different stories about the man-like creature, I started getting more & more into it. As I got older I heard a story about if you go into the bathroom and turn off the lights and say slender-man three times in the mirror, he will appear and come for you. Years later, I was 21. It was right after my 21st birthday. me and all my friends were messing around in the woods at 10 PM that night when we heard something behind the trees. "It's just animals," I said as we kept walking.

    The Grudge (2020) Review

    The Grudge (2020) Review

    The Grudge (2020) is a far cry from the 2002 movie, and an even farther cry from the Japanese legend that started the whole franchise. The pacing is messy, the characters are forgettable, the suspension is purchased with cheap jump scares and stereotypical "scary movie music". When it comes to good examples of scary movies, this movie is positively amazing. It's an amazing example of how to not make a good horror movie. It has all the classic stereotypes of bad horror movies: characters that have no intelligence, that are naïve, characters that are deemed crazy and yet not helped but rather abandoned, jump scares, messy story telling, and horrible cinematography. I could ramble on and on about how bad this movie was in general, but it would be better to speak in specifics.

    Get Gone features modern horror icon Lin Shaye as the matriarch of a family of murderers. Mama, as Shaye's character is called, once found herself visiting the woods and deciding to stay after meeting a Fish and Game Ranger named Don Maxwell (Robert Miano). It's vaguely implied that Mama was kidnapped but the movie doesn't linger on this point.

    3 Stephen King Adaptations You Never Knew Will Be Coming Soon

    There's so much from Stephen King as it is, so it's easy to miss even the most obscure. Part of the reason for that is the fact that many get plenty of press, lots of sold tickets, interviews and hoopla. Whereas others are just back-burned due to being under major development or limited to a particular platform. Hence why you have to read up on this! Take notes. Prepare. And.... Perhaps subscribe to those streaming platforms?

The rain was still pouring from two days ago, and everyone’s face was always the same gloom. The downside to cloudiness is that it’s harder to wake up to.

    “With the “Higher-Ups” now testing out the full potential of the prototype specimen, the last phase of their scientific discovery was at hand. Placing clinically insane criminals one by one into testing rooms, experiments to redesign their genetic makeup had taken place. The bio-weapon militia had began gathering in different parts of the United States and started changing those within it’s population. For it was the evolution seen first hand in the underground facility that allowed those in charge to strategize a way to destroy the human race. The take over of the realm of Darkness had begun.”

    Urban legends circulate at work, on bulletin boards, and across the internet, in our modern age, via "creepy pasta" postings. ALL of them, some argue, are horror stories, whether or not they make us laugh, cringe, shriek, giggle or shudder in fright. After all, their timeless, anonymous "It Could Happen to You" quality makes us feel, indeed, "It Could Happen to ME!" And so it could, Dear Reader, IF, indeed, any of these stories had a basis in fact. (Some might, but that is another topic.)
