People surprise and disappoint. Happens all the time. In particular, I’m referring to how often a person I know, a person I know to be intelligent and educated, will admit, usually by sharing it on social media, their thickheaded-ness by their believing in something that is so obviously false that your average five-year-old should know…Continue readingMan Cooked, Butchered, Added to Cans of Tuna
This ‘chere article from inquisitr ranks the top five best Hammer Horror films of all time. Did Hammer Studios do any films that WEREN’T at least tangentially Horror? Maybe throwing in the word “horror” is redundant. We’ll just say “The Best of Hammer”, then, and leave it at that. But do I agree with this…Continue readingThe Best of Hammer
It could be the easiest way in the world to rip somebody off–OR–the easiest way in the world to rip somebody off. How exactly would one go about proving such a thing as demonic possession? The Vatican has some strict criteria. I’m not aware of ANY legal criteria, not in the US. Does anybody know…Continue readingGimme My Money Back! I’m Still Possessed!
Friends, fellow werewolf enthusiasts, pack members, I need your assistance. If you don’t currently follow us over on Twitter (@werewolvescom is our handle; notice there is no “dot”), please do so. If you don’t do Twitter, please create a Twitter account and then follow us. Things over at the social media site are getting ugly.…Continue readingTo Arms, Wolf Brothers (and Sisters)!
I’m always glad to come across a new article from MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE, especially a vampire, zombie, or werewolf-related article. This one in particular, though, I have to take a couple of exceptions with. First off, the writer of the article mentions TWO werewolves that are on the prowl in the Hull region of England, the…Continue readingWerewolf Guilt?
Sounds like some swanky foreign dish, doesn’t it? Or a concept album by some underground Alternative band you’ve never heard of and never will. (They opened for TOAD THE WET SPROCKET once, though!) Some years ago, the TV weatherman promised a “dazzling” display of shooting stars during a meteor shower. I sat up until the…Continue readingFull Eclipsed Moon, with a Comet!
By the time you all read this, the sugary-sappy manufactured holiday will be past. Most of you guys and gals will have dropped a pretty penny on flowers, candy, and/or presents for your better halves that you’d just as soon have held onto. Tipping my hand, here, readers; I am not a fan of Valentine’s…Continue readingSerial Killer Valentines
A couple of weeks or so ago, I posted my review of the new film THE BYE BYE MAN, expressing my disappointment with it. It hardly seems I am alone in my sentiments, as I have not seen even one favorable review of the film from any of the major Horror sites. (I never consult…Continue readingReview: THE BYE BYE MAN (The Book)
I have waxed eloquent on previous occasions over my appreciation, discovered only in the last couple’a three years, for the lost artform of radio dramas. Having satellite radio in my car enables me to enjoy a wide variety of these old treats, these pieces of “vintage” entertainment that take me back to a simpler age.…Continue readingRevisiting the (Radio) Classics: THE CURSE OF THE NEANDERTHAL
You’ve heard the term “psychic vampire” before, but have you ever heard of a psychic werewolf? (Hint: This isn’t a person who claims psychic abilities who transforms into a werewolf on nights of the full moon.) Psychic vampires are entities who may or may not be human, who feed on psychic or spiritual energy as…Continue readingPsychic Werewolves
When I was a little kid I was confused by the similarities between the words Pennsylvania and Transylvania. (The meanings of the names are “Penn’s land” and “the land beyond the forest,” respectively. Otherwise they have no connection one to the other—unfortunately. I totally wish Transylvania was in easy driving distance the way Pennsylvania is.)…Continue readingWEREWOLVES OF PENNSYLVANIA
Here’s some more Science for you this week, but it’s bloody Science. I will address, again, the common misconception people have about apes. They think gorillas are vicious brutes and chimpanzees are cute and cuddly. The reality is exactly the opposite. Blame the movies for this misunderstanding, as much as anything. How many “killer ape”…Continue readingA Look In the Mirror
Usually such “top five” or “top ten” or “top however-the-hell-many-you-want” things about a given subject are the purview of clickbait sites. (Hey, no damning them for being what they are, here. We all live and die based on the amount of traffic we get. Clickbaiters may shamelessly flaunt themselves like prostitutes, promising titillation before education…Continue readingBy the light…of the silvery moon…!
Teeth. That’s the first thing you see. Lots and lots of teeth. This thing was nothing BUT teeth and a mouth. The creature is called SACCORHYTUS. It was a DEUTEROSTOME, and these type creatures are the foundation, or were, upon which mammalian life evolved, including human beings. Yes, this one-millimeter-long sea creature was our ancestor,…Continue readingWorld’s Deadliest Microfossil Was Our Earliest Ancestor
I have in the past vented so much spleen on the Political Correctness movement and on “outrage culture” that it’s surprising I have any spleen left. I must have Wolverine spleen, though, a mutant healing factor with a spleen that constantly grows back like Prometheus’s liver, as I never seem to run out of vitriol…Continue readingThe PC Police Hatin’ on SPLIT
The latest offering from writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan proves that the auteur has regained his stride. Shyamalan is BACK, big time. After the godawful deuces of THE HAPPENING and THE LAST AIRBENDER, we feared we’d lost him, and hipster Internet hacks decided it was fashionable to heap insult and scorn upon him— kinda like it…Continue readingReview: SPLIT
It would be so easy to lose heart these days. It seems we as a country are more divided than ever. But then I remind myself, we survived the Civil War, the Great Depression, the Civil Rights struggle, Vietnam, the Cold War. We will survive the little orange dictator, too, and the vast reserves of…Continue readingBigfoot, Bringing Us All Together
Previously I reported the grand news that the PENNY DREADFUL story would be continuing after all, albeit in comic book form. I am now pleased to add to that announcement with more PD-related goodness. Titan Comics has revealed that there will be SIX covers for the upcoming series release, and you can feast your peepers…Continue readingPENNY DREADFUL Comic Book Alternate Covers
One could attempt a reasoned argument that the late and anything but lamented television abomination and celebration of all things crude, course, vapid, and putrid about American pop culture today—I am speaking of MTV’s JERSEY SHORE, may it forever rot in hell!—appealed only to Neanderthals, but that would be insulting to Neanderthals who, more and…Continue readingThe Neanderthals of Jersey Shore
That’s LIVE Science, people. As in, the website livescience.com. It’s, y’know, scientific and stuff. Educational. (Don’t tell the kids or they’ll stop reading!) I chanced by chance upon this article, like, by chance, wherein somebody over at livescience (Note: If I ever open a mortuary, and then decide to establish a website to advertise said…Continue readingScience Looks at the Werewolf
To use the word “disappointment” is apropos to begin this article, as I WAS. Disappointed, that is. I’d gone into this one with high hopes, intrigued by the premise and always happy for any excuse to see Kate Beckinsale in genre work. I mean, I like her and all, but I don’t like her enough…Continue readingReview: THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ROOM
“Gentlemen, we can rebuild [them]. We have the technology. We have the capability… We can make [them] better than [they were] before. Better…stronger…faster.” That’s a paraphrase of the opening narration to THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, a TV show I loved as a kid. “[Y]our scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they COULD…Continue readingBringing Back the Dead (Animals)
Here’s something stupid. Or it WOULD be stupid, if it were meant to be taken seriously, and I don’t think it is. Supposedly your favorite subgenre of Horror reveals your secret sexual fetish. I call balderdash, but since you’re here and I’m here, we might as well go ahead and see what the article has…Continue readingLove Werewolves? You’re into Exhibitionism!
Radio programming is a lost art. I’m referring here to the sort of audio entertainment that existed before the advent of television, not the inane blabbering and cookie-cutter programming that comprise the wasteland that is radio today. There’s nothing at all artistic about the latter, and we can only wish that it would somehow become…Continue readingRadio Werewolf
