    Prévenance

    Prévenance

    Jen finished cleaning the pee bowl. Needless to say she received limited to no pleasure from the act but had done it so many times that the indignity and dirtiness had warn off. Mr. Ulrich was fast asleep and she was thankful for that because he was a talker and a little too touchy with nursing staff. That was her one saving grace for working the night shift at the hospital: most of the patients were knocked out from the countless opioids pumping through their system. Jen dreaded human interaction ever since she was a toddler. It wasn’t that she wasn’t personable, but rather most kids seemed to have a bad feeling around her as if there was a dark cloud hanging over her that made the other kids feel nauseous and scared. They treated her like a leper and left her alone. At first, she felt abandoned, but that feeling was quickly replaced with a serenity that she embraced. Upon graduating she started and finished the nursing program and began work at the only hospital in the county. Jen never had aspirations to leave the small Valley Falls and was quite content with her day to day.

    The surrealist horror film Dr. Caligari (1989), featuring erotic actresses such as Madeleine Reynal and Laura Albert, is a neon-and-plastic, sex-infused nightmare oddity belched up from the fetid guts of the late Reagan era, a videocassette relic of the bygone days of little corner stores peddling cheap, direct-to-VHS "grand guinol" for the eager lines of bored, potato chip munching thrill seekers.

    My Favorite Horror/Spooky Books and Stories

    It’s midwinter, which means it’s time to curl up with a good book. For me, this often means curling up with something spooky or scary. While the Autumn months are my favorite in terms of coziness and spooks, there is something about the dark of Winter that makes me want some darker spooks. If you also like to be spooked in the Winter months, or if you’re just looking for something a little more thrilling, here is a list of my favorite spooky books, stories, and authors so far (have I said “spooky” enough yet?).

    Reed Alexander's Literary Review of 'The Parasite from Proto-Space' by Brett Petersen

    I knew I was going to like this when it started out with some random douchebag mumbling nonsense, whacked out on a cocktail of drugs. Specifically ketamine, fentanyl, and crack. For sure, that would likely kill the most hard core drug addict, but it sounds like a wild ride down a short rabbit hole.

    I saw the fear take over in his frantic eyes as I violently grabbed the back of his hair, pulling his head backwards abruptly; exposing his jugular. Almost as if I had become entranced, I could see his veins pulsating, my eyes widened with lust as a deceptive and lingering smile crept upon my face. He attempted to raise his hands up, trying his best to push away from me in order to escape my grasp, but he couldn’t. Something in me had shifted… I changed, almost snarling, I repeatedly and brutally stabbed him in his neck with the blade that I held in my other hand, the blood spewing from his wounds, splattering against the walls. I could hear him let out a scream in tremendous agony, as he began to choke on his own blood. The gurgling noises that escaped from his disgusting mouth only increasing and exciting me more, bringing the knife up one last time and striking him; beheading him in the process. The blood splattering my iniquity filled face as I watched his body fall to the floor, hearing his head hit the hardwood. A craze had overcome me, grinning immensely at his lifeless body I heard an intense gasp a few feet away. Looking up intently, I saw Dyrel standing there, white as a ghost at what he had just witnessed. Glancing down at the knife that was dripping blood, he took a step back, as he stumbled from the immense horror and disbelief. Stepping forward, over Rynd’s dead body, starring him down, making my way over to him slowly. Dyrel let out a shriek of terror, for he knew he was next. He ran down the stairs, desperately looking for a place to escape. The fear had taken over as he fell to the floor, quickly trying to get back up he made his way to the front door, pulling on the door handle, only to find out it had been locked. Hysterically struggling to unlock the door in his desperation, he began to see double at the suffocating dismay that had taken over him. But he immediately froze in his tracks when he heard a heavy laugh from directly behind him. Shaking, he slowly turned around, only to be face to face with me. He was withered with fear as our eyes met, he stared into my soulless blue eyes as he tried to mutter the words “Please…. no!”. I only smiled then, as I grabbed him by his throat, pinning him against the front door. Frantically grabbing my hand with both of his, wanting so eagerly for me to let him go. I saw the despair in his green eyes as I shoved the knife into his stomach, pulling upwards towards his diaphragm as his intestines began to fall from his stomach. All the while, the stench of his blood came pouring out, making me grimace in delight. I continued to stare into his eyes in the process, making sure I was the last thing he ever saw, as I slowly watched the life fade from his eyes. Pulling the knife out then and letting go from his neck, he fell to the ground, gazing at his body that laid in a pool of blood. Cocking my head to the side slightly, almost as if I was analyzing him in satisfaction. I let a sigh of contentment escape my lips, while wiping off my blade, and tucking it back into its hinge all the while I continued to smile. Chuckling to myself then, I quietly whispered “And to think, they never saw it coming.”

    AM I REALLY EVIL TO YOU?

    AM I REALLY EVIL TO YOU?

    “Kami was multiple different things,but anyone that knew her knew that she wasn't all there but no one ever thought that she would ever do what she did. I never thought that she was lonely but maybe she was and just didn't show it to the rest of us.. Whatever made her break and do what she did is unknown to anyone but her. I guess the answer to your question is that no matter what I do to try and forget I will never be the same after what happened.” Alex said to the many reporters that were trying to pray off of him like the vultures they were. He walked away and could still hear the reporters asking more questions and the clicks of their cameras. He was hoping that if he walked to school by the time he got there they would already be gone but sadly. He made his way into the school, where it all happened, and he made sure that Alex would never be able to have a good night's rest again. The moment he walked through the door all attention was on him, mummers filled the halls as he walked to his locker. He did his best to ignore all of them, once he reached his locker he quickly opened it trying to get the day over with as fast as humanly possible. He got all of his books out of his bag and accidentally hit his right hand on one of the hooks in the locker. He dropped his books and held his bandage hand trying to get the pain to subside. He could hear two kids next to him whispering to each other. “Is it really him?” one whispered and the other replied with “Yeah! We should ask him what it's like to be friends with a monster!” Alex quickly grabbed his books and slammed his locker shut and locked the lock. The hallway went silent some of his pirates were hoping he was gonna say something about what happened, others were hoping that a fight would break out, while the teachers were getting ready to stop said fight. All Alex did was walk away, right into another set of problems. He knew that this wasn't gonna go away anytime soon no matter how much he wished it would. As he walked through the hallways to his first class mummers and whispers followed him, everyone had their attention on him as he entered the classroom. All of them had their full attention on him. He finally decided to speak. “Will all of you screw off?” he said in such a sharp tone that it could cut straight through concrete, everyone looked in different directions even the teacher. He walked over to the seat that he always sat in and laid his books on the table. He leaned back into his chair and let his head fall backward with his hands behind his head and his lazily half shut. He let out a sigh of frustration as he closed his eyes fully now. He opened his eyes and looked over at the table that he would move to after the morning announcements, where they used to sit together. He let a small smile creep onto his face as he remembered the weird stuff they would talk about. But the small bit of happiness was short lived as he saw a blood covered girl with long, dark black hair, in the school uniform. In a state of shock and fear he tried to jump back away from the blood covered girl forgetting about the chair witch made him fall to the ground as the girl finely lifted her head. She had blood flowing out of her eye sockets, no eyes filled them. “You lived but we died '' she said in a whisper “You lived but we died '' she said in a louder voice. “YOU LIVED BUT WE DIED!!” she screamed this time. This made Alex flinch and start to crawl back, he knew that none of this was real.She was dead and he knew it but it didn't make the situation he was in any better than it was before. When he closed his eyes trying to get the dead girl out of his mind when he opened his eyes again he was met with piercing dark blue eyes that were staring into his grayish-blue eyes. He tensed up trying to not scream or run away from the well dressed creature that was in front of him with a Cheshire cat like grin plastered on his face. Alex kept his eyes that straight forward staring at the thing that started right back at him. “Well are you gonna do something or not kid?” The thing asked the blond that was starting to shake with fear,he knew that the thing was a killer and the real monster. His hand started to feel like it was on fire. He finally looked away from the thing in front of him and to his hand. His once white bandages were now stained with the boys blood from the wound that had suddenly opened. He grabbed his hand in pain and heard the thing that let a dark chuckle that sent a chill down the blonds spine. He swung his head around to see nothing where that thing once was. He looked around the classroom to see all of his classmates staring at him with a mix of worry and fear. He got up and walked out the door without a word. He walked into the bathroom and unwrapped his bloody hand and turned on the cold water from the school's shit plumbing. He hissed in pain as he ran his hand under the water, he winced at the pain but opened his eyes when the pain let up to be at least a little bit. He didn't do anything. He saw the creature that was only there a few seconds before hand. He took a big breath in and exhaled with a sigh trying to calm himself down after the burning on his hand came back. He shut the water off and grabbed paper towels wrapping his hand in them. He tried to ignore the creature that was flowing the boys ever movement. Alex was about to walk out when he heard a low growl that made him freeze dead in his tracks. “You can't just ignore me kid i'm here to stay and there's nothing you can do about it.” the creature said in a tone and let out a small growl. Alex sighed and said “I'm going to go see her after school. I know you're gonna come with me but till then can you leave me alone please?” Suddenly the creature's face went from an angry and threatening to happy like a child in a candy store. He started jumping around like he was a cartoon character clapping his hands together with a smile that wasn't creepy. Alex could have shared that he looked almost human. He shook his head and walked out of the bathroom and down the almost empty halls, the only people that were in the halls were the staff. He walked to the nurses office and opened the door to where he could walk in before he shut it and turned to see her already getting the medical tape so she could bandage his hand once again. He walked over and sat on the cot throwing the paper towels away in the bucket by the wall. “So wanna tell me what happening or you're just gonna sit there being all suspicious?” she asked him as she started to wrap his hand up. “I'm not suspicious your suspicious!” he exclaimed as he looked to his left to see the creature sitting in the chair with his legs crossed and and his hands folded together watching the nurse fix the boys hand.the woman looked over at the chairs that were to her left that the odd blond had been glaring at for a few minutes to see no one there. She raised a brow in confusion as she looked back at the boy and asked “what did the wall do to you?” Alex turned back to the woman as she put the medical tape back where she had gotten it from before. “No. just thinking about… stuff.” Alex answers her question only to be met with a snicker from the thing sitting a few feet away from him. He rolled his eyes and laid down with his bandaged arm over his eyes to shield him from the blinding light of the room. The nurse replied to this with a hum that said that she didn't believe a thing he just said. Alex knew that she didn't believe him but he also knew that she was the only teacher or adult that wouldn't push him into talking about what had happened only a month or so ago. He slowly started to drift asleep. He was met with the same dream he had had or more accurately a nightmare he had every night since the incident, all of his friends were all covered in blood and missing body parts. Just like the girl from the classroom earlier they all were yelling “you lived but we died!” All Alex could do is cover his ears and cower in a corner of the room he was stuck in. it wasn't a bad room if the dead, screaming, friends weren't there the room was fairly decent. It had a queen sized bed that had a blue comforter on it with a coffee table next to it with framed pictures set on it, the window on the opposite way of the door had a bay window and blue curtains that had butterflies on them. Alex jolted awake to find a fluffy blanket on top him and the nurse gone. He looked around and saw the creature staring at him uncomfortably close to his face. Alex jumped when he saw the creature and said “Can you not please? I get it your scary.`` Alex got up and started to walk to the door. He looked at the clock as he passed it. He had slept half of the school day away. He sighed and walked off to his next class prying that the day would go a little easier.

    The expression upon my face remained blank. “Do whatever needs to be done, to bring them here.” I said knowingly as I stared off into the snow covered forest. The slight breeze ran through my hair, as a few strands danced across my face. “As you wish” Floric responded, somewhat concerned and confused, but never questioning my order. I never broke my gaze as I continued watching the clusters of snow flakes fall from the dimly lit sky while I heard the pitter patter of his paws, as he ran off into the distance, headed North while in his ascended form. It only seemed like minutes before Polue, alone, had appeared at the required destination; only I was no where to be found. Confused, he called out my name, only to have me appear quietly behind him as I whispered into his ear “You’re a fool.” My breath sent chills down his spine, but before he could even begin to bring himself to muster any words, let alone move, I quickly wrapped my left arm around his chest pulling him tightly against me as I took out my blade from underneath my cloak; stabbing it into the right side of his neck. He gasped and began to choke on his own blood, gurgling and unable to breathe, just as quickly as I had stabbed him, I pulled the dagger back out; almost beheading him in the process as the blood spewed from his jugular, staining the ground a dark crimson color. I watched his body fall into the snow, all the while the blank expression remained on my face. I heard an intense gasp directly behind me as I turned around slowly to find Kalib standing there in disbelief. His face was as white as a ghost, stricken with fear as he proclaimed in terror “What have you done?!” I smiled then, slowly stepping forward in his direction. His dark green eyes stared into my twinkling blue, yet, somehow soulless eyes. Almost entranced as they were widened with despair, he then fell to his knees. He couldn’t seem to speak as he glanced at Polue’s lifeless body then back at me. Standing before him, I looked down at him disgusted, grasping him tightly by his neck, I stared into his eyes and whispered “Now you know.” His pupils dilated as a tear rolled down his cheek, stabbing him just underneath his belly button, I then dragged the knife upwards, into his diaphragm. The blood poured not only from his stomach, but from his mouth as he cried out in immense pain, attempting to raise his hands in order to stop me, but he was too late. I watched with a smile as his body began to tremble, the heart ache and treachery written all over his face. The excitement sparking within me as I watched the life in eyes begin to fade. Just as they did I closed my eyes, opening my mouth slightly, it was almost orgasmic as I heard him asphyxiate on his own blood. Pulling the blade out, he fell to his side as his last breath escaped his lips and just as he did, I opened my eyes slowly and I glanced up to see Floric standing there, frozen in his tracks. Tilting my head slightly in awe as our eyes met, it seemed like a life time as we both stood there, not saying a word. I smiled wildly as I said to him “Always remember, love makes you weak.” Stepping over Kalib’s dead body as I wiped my blade clean, I walked past Floric as he briefly nodded, still shocked at what he had just witnessed. He stood there for a moment, looking at Polue and then back at Kalib. His mouth began to quiver, but just as it did, it then formed into an iniquity filled smile as he looked up towards the now dark sky. He closed his eyes, letting the sensation flood his body and mind. Nothing but silence could be heard. For he finally understood.

    Not an explosion but a whimper and a sniffle

    What if humans were not the true inhabitants of their planet? It is a question that has been become a serious issue based on the events of the past few months. For years, we have looked at all the stone structures that appear to defy logic if you consider the technology at the time they were created were ropes, logs and man power. The questions that Sci Fi enthusiasts ponder was why there is no history of these builders and how the structures were created with such precision and expertise like the perfectly cut stones of Cusco, Peru or the stone guardians of Easter Island. However, the question that some people in unnamed government agencies were focused on since 1947 is when they would return and what would the results of that event. In the Fall of 2019, the original inhabitants made their plans painfully apparently to the out matched primative 6 billion humans that were not prepared for the pending conflict.

    Has something strange ever happen to you and it takes a while for you to internalize what happened? It still doesn’t make sense to me and I’m having trouble trying to understand the reason behind it. I just know I’ll probably never go camping again. A few days ago I went on a camping trip with my best friend Lumi. She’s not really the type of person who would want to go camping. I planned on bringing a tent and sleeping on the ground in a cozy sleeping bag. On the other hand, I found out that she had rented a cabin on the campgrounds we were staying at. “Don’t worry about it, Jess!” She persuaded. “You won’t regret it! It’s still camping.” I remembered scoffing. “It’s really not.”

    The 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

    If you lived through the 90's, then you are probably familiar with the TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart. A magical comedy show for kids that ran for seven seasons. It was a far cry from the original comics, keeping only the name and some of the original characters.

It was said that ten to twenty inmates escaped the fire and survived hiding in the woods. The melon head is supposedly from turning cannibal to survive the harsh winter, and from inbreeding. The other tale of this myth, is that the melon heads are a colonial-era family who was banished for accusations of witchcraft and took refuge in the woods as for the melon head it is also said to have happened because of inbreeding.

    “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.”
