Silent as Death
He stared past her with a blank expression, his head leaning to one side. "I don't understand you," Emilia said quietly, "why won't you speak to me anymore? I really think we need to figure this out."
Well after gaining a doctorate certification in cryptozoology I decided to form a team. Months later Me and my team, my best friend carter, his cousin Joey, and carter’s girlfriend Athena, This is our first investigation and we are investigating Bigfoot. Carter is an aspiring horror movie director so while he was initially reluctant to do this hunt do to the potential danger I told him “it maybe dangerous but think about your movies think about how good the Blair witch did... you can capitalize on that by making a found footage of your own” and with that he was on board, I knew by using his aspirations it would get him to agree to mine. So we interviewed a lot of the locals as to what they seen and honestly a lot of the reports were Very similar to my facts given in my previous Bigfoot article that I wrote. and then the night came where we prepared everything our guns, our camera (Joey being the camera man), our flashlights and we went out to hunt.
'Come to Daddy' Movie Review
From longtime horror film producer, but first time director, Ant Timpson, Come to Daddy is the classic tale of a son, Norval (Elijah Wood), attempting to reconnect with his estranged father (Stephen McHattie), who abandoned him and his mother when Norval was little. However, Norval’s dad is extremely competitive and macho, and in an effort to gain his respect, Norval keeps trying to impress him. But their pissing contest goes horribly awry, and it leads down a dark and twisted rabbit hole.
Reed Alexander's Horror Review of C.H.U.D. (1984)
This movie is pretty bad, but for what it is, it's actually quite good. And I don't mean 'so bad it's good,' I mean actually good. And I'm not grading on a curve here. Don't misunderstand me, there is so much about this movie that is jut flat out bad that it should fit into the category of good-bad movies. In fact, I struggle to place it anywhere else. It's a bit of a paradox, a movie being both good and bad while not technically being good-bad.
Vampire: The New Beginning

The invisible man.. my review
Ok so this film were so I begin, it is oh so very predictable honestly it starts with the villains girlfriend Cecilia’s fleeing, and it is this that sends the abusive, sociopathic, and overly possessive Griffin (our main antagonist) into a spiral of pure deranged, and utter manipulative path of pure sociopathic and possessive REVENGE!!!. he does this by faking his own suicide and then having his brother getting involved to collaborate his story, and then he dons a suit lined with billions of tiny cameras so as to physically disappear from the whole world, and then he sets of on his plan to gaslight his ex who for her perceived “betrayal” of him. Honestly credit were credit is due I think this movie does a great great great job of portraying the post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that many abuse victims go thru after they escaped there abusive relationships, and this movie very cleverly combined the hollow man-esque science with abuse victim mentality and remake of a black and white horror film and u got a recipe for a genius film.
“Eat your humans,” said the pea to her child. The young pea frowned and twisted a piece of the human hair around his fork before letting the whole thing clatter back onto his place. “I don’t want to Mama! Humans are gross.”
'Swallow' Movie Review
Swallow is the story of Hunter Conrad (Haley Bennett). She has just married a very attractive and successful man (Austin Stowell), and they have a baby on the way. But it soon begins to dawn on her that her husband is controlling every aspect of her life, and she starts to feel the walls closing in on her. As a result of her stress, she develops a very unhealthy habit on a whim: pica, the compulsion to eat inedible objects. As those around her try to help her, it quickly becomes clear that she still has some repressed demons from her past.
“I don’t know what you are doing to me, Mon Cherie.” The words were the same then as the day they first met. Only now, rather than describing the torrid paramour that had swept into her life, the Woman was describing the slow decline that her life was taking. Both the Woman and the Doctor knew that it was only a matter of time before it would all be over, and she would slip into that dark abyss for good.
The Lady of Rust
- The story of a town you should not visit - As far as myths and legends go, it is undeniable that people are attracted to fear. The sensation of adrenaline coursing through the veins, provoked by the thought of miserable failure. More often than naught, it is the image of grazing the hands of the reaper, the most frightening occurrence of the mind.
20 Tips For Writing the Perfect Short Horror Story
The key to writing the perfect short horror story is not to panic! Pick something that could happen to your reader. Pick a location that’s familiar to your reader. Eat, drink, sleep the horror that you have created before you actually begin to write. Lie back in a darkened room and really visualize it. Scare the pants off yourself. Go to your location or one that looks like it and sit there quietly for a while. If your story takes place on a quiet street in the early hours, find one, get up in the early hours and drink it up. Take a pad and write down some notes about what you see and how you feel. Try to see the story from three or four different views even if they won’t be in the final version. Choose someone timid, someone thick skinned, someone religious. The choice is yours. Take your time, build up the pressure, slowly but surely. This may be a short horror story but you’ve got more time than you think to lay out your stall. Stay focussed. Don’t get bogged down in back story. In fact, try giving back story a miss altogether. Anticipation is nine tenths of the horror story battle – let your reader know something bad is going to happen, lead them there by the hand. Dig deep into that horror. Choose one that scares you. If it doesn’t scare you, how do you expect it to scare the hell out of your dear reader? Throw a few red herrings in there, twist them on their heads. The old cat jumping out of the fridge is a bit of cliché but you get my drift. If you’re scared of heights, go and stand on the edge of a tall building and lean over, if you’ve got a spider phobia, go and put one on the palm of your hand. Remind yourself how real fear feels. Don’t overload your reader with gore. It becomes boring and they quickly attain sensitisation. A splash of blood here and there will do fine. Don’t over describe. You’re not Dickens. Give your reader some credit that they can imagine your ultimate horror. Don’t be afraid that they won’t get the point. Keep the monster/horror hidden for as long as possible. Read the best and the worst of horror. Reread the passages that got your heart racing and try to see how the author did it. Look at the way you reacted and imagine that’s what you want your reader to feel. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles. Write a couple of different versions of your short horror story to see how it comes out. Leave your first draft for a decent amount of time so that you come back to it fresh. For some people that’s a couple of days. For others it’s a couple of months. Always, always read your draft through once without touching it before you sit down to edit. Check you have the right vocabulary to scare. Choose the words to describe your fear with care. Make sure they fit and sound right. Try not to use unusual words that your reader won’t readily know the meaning to. It will break the flow. You’re trying to build fear not a larger vocab. Don’t forget that your short horror story isn’t written in stone. It can change. It can evolve. It can be totally different from the original. Don’t be afraid to delete stuff that doesn’t belong.
