To celebrate darkness is coming’s first anniversary, I’m giving it away for free today only on Kindle. About darkness is coming When Jess buys the house on Scarlet Lane, she quickly learns there’s more inside the house than the walls. A strange clicking fills the house at night, terrifying her children, ghosts reveal themselves, and…

Horror that isn’t horror at all is the trend of late for many movies I’ve seen this year. The Witch In The Window (2018) is what I consider horror-lite, but it’s not like the others like this that I’ve judged roughly and tossed aside with a lower than a three-star review. This one grabbed my…

The second Clive Barker story I read was Cabal (I still have the 1st Edition Hardcover I bought when I was in college), and to my delight in 1990 Nightbreed was released on the big screen. It is the first movie that I’m conscious of seeing that was adapted from a book; with Hellraiser, I…

This film is blatant about what it’s telling the viewer; there more…

Lord of Illusions (1995) is a strange one indeed. While it carries a few of the characters from Clive Barker’s short story The Last Illusion, that is it, but it doesn’t stop me for enjoying both equally. Besides, it’s not like Hellraiser is an exact translation of Hellbound Heart. The story follows Harry D’Amour’s investigation…

Gaslighting is manipulating someone by psychological means into questioning their sanity. That is how Pet Sematary (2019) made me feel; not to single out this film, most remakes make me feel this way. I know the story, I’ve read and seen it several times, yet as I watched I began questioning everything that is true….
