  • Some Severe Situations #2: “A Little Closure”

    ,,

    Wait a minute. Wait. Stop walking for a second and think about this. Sit down and think. Sit. Think. In their forty-odd years of operation, Harley’s Grill never served anything more elegant than a rack of ribs, yet today they were advertising “Chilean Sea Bass with Orange Mango White Wine Reduction.” You just saw it, written in that ugly teal marker on that dry-erase sandwich board they keep out front. Same putrid teal as always, but today it said “Special: Chilean Sea Bass with Orange Mango White Wine Reduction.” Seems like they even managed to spell it right, too. And that’s suspicious. You remember the time they were trying to raise money for the church with that hot dog stunt. “Fundraser for sant margrit’s church – frankfritter eating contest.” You laughed about that for weeks. So how the hell did they manage to spell “Chilean Sea Bass with Orange Mango White Wine Reduction” correctly? And where they hell did they learn to make “Chilean Sea Bass with Orange Mango White Wine Reduction?” The most sophisticated fruit in that sweatbox of a kitchen of theirs is maraschino cherries. And we’re not within a hundred miles of a lake, let alone a sea. And there’s no way in hell Harley’s Grill—that’s smelled faintly of urine and had a fly infestation since I can remember—started having quality seafood shipped in.

  • “DREAD: A HEAD FULL OF BAD DREAMS” (Book Review)

    ,,

    Reading DREAD: A HEAD FULL OF BAD DREAMS is my very first experience with the small publisher Grey Matter Press — and let me tell you, I cannot wait to read more. DREAD: A HEAD FULL OF BAD DREAMS was born from the publisher’s decision to let readers choose the stories from their catalog, and it was a pretty good move. The book is packed with 20 tales and 339 pages of short horror fiction, plus ads and images for other anthologies and novels from some of the best horror writers working today. Just two stories in, I was hooked.

  • BiFan 2016: “THE TAG-ALONG” (Film Review)

    ,,

    There’s a fine line between mystery and ambiguity, and the use of both in horror filmmaking both come with their own unique risks and rewards. With the right balance of mystery, a horror film can use suspense and misdirection to change the audience’s perception of a character or plot point in a way that feels thrilling and earned. However, the use of ambiguity has to be more careful, as a plot point or story beat that’s left open-ended can make the audience question anything else that could be open for interpretation. But when synchronized, mystery and ambiguity can be almost weaponized by a filmmaker, offering something genuinely engaging while continually pulling back to curtain to hint at a deeper, darker picture.

  • Q&A: Actor Amadeus Serafini on the Shocking Season Two Finale of “SCREAM: THE TV SERIES”

    ,

    With the body count having risen considerably and enough twists and turns to make a seasoned carnie feel queasy, SCREAM: THE TV SERIES ended its second season with a pair of shocking reveals. Of course, read on at your own peril, as this article’s treading spoiler territory fairly immediately. The first jaw-dropping reveal is that the series’ mythical archvillain, Brandon James, might be alive and well after all these years, and could potentially be the big bad should SCREAM find a third season renewal. The second, and most shocking, was this season’s slasher was none other than one of the Lakewood Six: Kieran, who’s been around since the series’ pilot, as played by Amadeus Serafini.

  • Q&A: Actor/Performer Mark Steger talks “STRANGER THINGS”, “HOLIDAYS”

    ,

    Tool. THE PACT. STRANGER THINGS. What (or who) connects these pieces of art? The answer is actor/performer/choreographer Mark Steger. Since 1989, Steger has worked his ass off playing interesting and terrifying monsters, among various other entities. When I visited the set of Nicholas McCarthy’s “Easter” segment from HOLIDAYS, I walked around the corner and there stood Steger in full, provocative creature make-up. To be honest, the guy scared the hell out of me.

  • “THE GREAT DIVIDE #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    While there are many ways for humanity to die out, if post-apocalyptic movies have anything to say, it’s most likely going to be from blowing holes in the back of each other’s heads. While THE GREAT DIVIDE agrees with this Mad Max sentiment of self-destruction, the newest comic from Dynamite Press has added a twist to traveler-in-a-desert genre: death by touch. In not so near future, death comes in the form of skin to skin contact, not only snuffing out the life of the victim, but trapping them in the body of their killer, like a split personality. A traditional story with an original premise, the first issue takes us deep into the life of one man as he explores the terrain of a land with no law and no touchies.
