werewolf, werewolves and lycans

Upcoming Werewolves

There are a couple of lycanthropic cinematic projects—i.e. werewolf movies—coming up that I am excited about. Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive trailer for HUNTER’S MOON starring Thomas Jane, my favorite of Marvel’s Punishers (despite the fact that they screwed his origin all to hell) and the guy who got poor Dirk Diggler into trouble in…

New Super7 Action Figures

I’m all about the Super7 ReAction Figures line, with one caveat: they’re too damn expensive for figures of that size, the 3 inches and change size, or as I think of them, the STAR WARS action figure size. (Telling my age here, but it was the STAR WARS line that made that size action figure…

Come and Knock on Their Door

How long has it been now since Wolf’s Museum of Mystery was destroyed in a tragic fire? Not even a year yet? It seems so surreal, even now. I’m so thankful that not everything was destroyed in the fire; a few pieces survived. And I’m so glad to see my friends, Wolf and Ali Mertz,…

TWIN PEAKS Goes to Graceland

It’s an unconventional choice, but would we really expect anything less from TWIN PEAKS? The official 30th anniversary celebration of the cult TV phenomenon will be taking place at Graceland and not in Washington State, where the series was filmed. Why? Why not! And series creator David Lynch is a big Elvis Presley mark, so…

THE HOWLING Getting Remade

My kneejerk reaction to hearing this news was to start singing that line from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. You know the one. The part right before “Oh, mama mia!” That’s right. “No no no no no no no!” Why attempt a remake of something that is perfect already, as the original THE HOWLING is? What they…

Revisiting the Classics: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

Several of my friends were shocked to learn that I had never seen this movie all the way through. It’s one of those I’d watched in pieces but never sat down and viewed from beginning to end. Why didn’t I make it a point to check it out earlier than this previous week, when I…

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 4

For all the differences between us, the way the Christ-men spoke, their accents, they did not look much different from my people. The men were bearded and wore their hair no longer than their collars. They wore tunics and leather skirts. As it was springtime and the weather balmy they had no use for long…

The Port Chatham Horror

I don’t want to be hypocritical. I just finished typing a scathing indictment of the stupid. In particular, people who will believe anything they read on the Internet without even considering that it might not be true or they might want to investigate to determine whether or not it is true before they start shouting…

Your Weekly Dose of Insanity

Good freakin’ grief, the stuff that people will believe! Anybody who thought that having the Internet would result in a more educated society has been woefully disappointed. If anything the Internet has made the problem worse because it allows false information to be spread more quickly, easily, virally, and has done nothing, can do nothing,…

The Moons of 2020

I haven’t even started getting used to writing “2020” yet on any document where I’m supposed to list the date. If previous experience is any indicator, I should remember to start doing it by June at the earliest. (Although it may be easier because, as one of my credit cards expires in 2020, I’ve already…

Dogmen: Chicken or Egg?

With regards to all the paranormal phenomena we experience today, is there any reason to believe that it is a recent development? Much the opposite, I think. The evidence is overwhelming that such things have always been with us, although they may have changed form with time. Some paranormal researchers theorize that the Fairies of…

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 3

I came home in the mid-morning, a boy again, naked and sodden with blood and filth. I could not make myself speak, other than to shriek Mother’s name. Father, out looking for me with my two older brothers, was not there to hear me. I think God showed him a kindness, that he did not…

Meet Moloch

If you read the Old Testament, and not just the familiar parts of it, the familiar stories like Noah’s Ark and Daniel in the lion’s den, you might find a few surprises. For example, the fact that the ancient Israelites were wont to practice human sacrifice. It’s true. The deity to whom the ancient Hebrews…

Meet Moloch, the Movie Star!

That statue of the god Moloch (who craved the blood of sacrificed children) put up at the Coliseum by people at the Vatican may be causing all kinds of controversy—I can’t believe the folks at Vatican City didn’t see *that* coming!—but having the horned horror on display there is hardly his first brush with modern…

Secondhand Werewolf

I belong to this Facebook group, “Weird Secondhand Finds” I think it’s called. Someone had shared this photograph; I don’t recall the person’s name or I would credit him or her. If you are by chance the person who took this photograph, if you just happen to come across it here on this site, just…

Thank Me for the JEEPERS CREEPERS Funko

I’m pleased to announce that my Funko Pop! figure of the Creeper from the JEEPERS CREEPERS franchise recently arrived in the mail—I’d preordered it months ago—and it now sits adorably on my bookshelf. I feel like I deserve the credit for the figure existing n the first place. You see, some time back I sent…

Apologies to Super7

A few years back I had purchased a set of new tires. Within a month’s time those tires were as bald as I am. (No, my alignment wasn’t off. Those tires were uniformly bald.) I went back to the dealership. “What the hell!” I demanded. They were totally cool, though. They replaced the tires at…

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Chapter 2

There is beauty to be found in the corrupt, precious even in the midst of the unholy. My homeland is beautiful. Arcadia, with its black peaks, its towering cedars too great in number to count, its meandering streams like silver ribbons draped between its hills, its thickets of wild ferns that grow taller than any…

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Chapter 1

“His disciples asked Him, saying, ‘Master, who did sin, this man or his parents, that this has been visited upon him?’ The Lord answered them, saying, ‘neither this man hath sinned, nor his parents, but that through him the works of God should be made manifest.’” This passage is from the ninth chapter of the…

Zombie Puppets Serenade Krampus

Here you are, my friends. This is my Christmas gift to you. A video of zombie puppets, from the Night of the Living Dead Puppet Show, singing Christmas carols at the recent Krampusnacht celebration in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If those words right there don’t make you want to click on that link, and if they don’t…

Why Does Europe Get Christmas Monsters But We Don’t?

I’m writing these words as an American, located in the United States, thus the use of the “we” pronoun. If you are in fact reading this and you are *not* American and do *not* live in the United States, it won’t quite be applicable. If you are perchance European, then I would rephrase the question,…

Chewie Finally Gets His Medal

It has long been a source of discussion among hardcore fanboys: why didn’t Chewbacca get a medal at the end of the original STAR WARS? He was certainly as deserving of one as Luke and Han Solo. There are two reasons, one that is in canon and one that is not. The one that is…

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF – Introduction

The Confessions of Saint Christopher—Werewolf Translated by Dr. David Mayhew A Novel by Wayne Miller Introduction By David Mayhew, PhD I am a man of two worlds. I am an academic, first and foremost. I also admit to being something of a dreamer. Sometimes it is hard for me to reconcile these two disparate halves…

Movie Review: CRITTERS ATTACK

It’s a curious thing with me and this franchise. I can’t honestly say that I *liked* any of the CRITTERS movies, but I love the Critters themselves. I’ve long longed (heh) for a serious treatment of the Critters, even if that seriousness resulted in a comedic film. Does that make any sense? The best example…

Investigations with the Fouke Monster, Part Two

I chanced upon this online rumor that asserts that the Fouke Monster, star of THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, made a cameo appearance in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve had a werewolf or apelike creature appear in the STAR WARS universe. Remember Lak Sivrak? And then there’s the…
