BOOK REVIEW: Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish

BOOK REVIEW: Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish

Be careful what you wish for. Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish is part revenge thriller, part tragedy. It’s what you would get if you mixed a cocktail of Jane Eyre and “The Monkey’s Paw” with a dash of Death Note. Intrigued? You should be. Like Jane Eyre, the novella follows the tragic life of a […]

See Jack Black in the New ‘Goosebumps’ Trailers

I’ll admit, when I first heard a Goosebumps movie was in the works, I was skeptical. Movie adaptations of any book are hit and miss as it is, but a single film based on an entire series? Come on. Then I watched the trailers with my Goosebumps obsessed son. After seeing him “fankid” over the […]

BOOK REVIEW: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill

BOOK REVIEW: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill

True horror is not buckets of gore but fear—fear that creeps up on you, hangs on tight, and lingers. Few authors understand this as well as Joe Hill. His novel Horns (2011) is one of my favorites and his last release NOS4A2 (2013) was scary as Hell. His first published book, 20th Century Ghosts (2007) is a collection […]

Spielberg to direct Ernest Cline’s ‘Ready Player One’

My wildest geek dreams have come true. A movie of Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel, Ready Player One is in the works and Warner Bros. Studios has Steven Freakin’ Spielberg set to direct it. So why is this so amazing? First, they’re gonna need a bigger special effects budget. To give you an idea, here’s a brief synopsis […]

Seattle Crypticon Horror Convention: Day One

Seattle Crypticon Horror Convention: Day One

I’ve been going to Crypticon Seattle for the last five years, and I have to say that this year’s convention was the best. It wasn’t the amazing celebrity guests though there were many including the Soska Sisters (writers/directors of American Mary) and Sid Haag (House of 1,000 Corpses). Nor was it showings of new indie […]

BOOK REVIEW: Divergent Series by Veroncia Roth

BOOK REVIEW: Divergent Series by Veroncia Roth

With the Insurgent movie opening next month, I figured it was time for me to buckle down and finish the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. Divergent I read the first installment, Divergent last year and, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t impressed. While the plot was interesting, the writing fell flat. Dystopian Chicago was intriguing, but […]

Book Review: Penpal by Dathan Auerbach

Book Review: Penpal by Dathan Auerbach

You know those crane machines filled with cheap stuffed toys and the occasional awesome one that you simply must have? Penpal is a lot like those. The writing is long-winded and poorly paced, but if you’re patient, you will find the story is worth the trouble and the purse full of coins it costs to buy the book. […]

Book Review: Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

Book Review: Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

At first glance Horrorstör, the novel by Grady Hendrix, designed to look like an Ikea catalog, looks like a clever marketing gimmick or a parody without substance. But readers, I promise you, like the Orsk store at the center of this plot, Horrorstör is full of surprises. I recommend getting your hands on a physical […]
