We finally get to see Audrey, and rather than provide us with some answers, it leaves us with more questions than we had before. What’s happened to her, to make her so bitter, and how did she end up married to that dork? IS she Richard’s mother? Is that what the telephone call the dork…Continue readingTWIN PEAKS Episode Recap 7-30-17
Warning, parents: This one’s gonna be a PG-13 article. I used to know this guy, Andy, who repeated the same jokes, over and over. One of them, the one he recited the most often, was about his desire to name his penis “Demonz.” People who’d never heard the joke before would always ask him why…Continue readingSex with Demons
I have a friend, one of those online friends who I’ve never met in real life, who I met because of a shared interest in Gilles de Rais and with whom I get along swimmingly (She’s working on a book, so you’ll be hearing about it as soon as it’s ready!), who lives near Hull,…Continue readingWhat the hell, Hull?!
Note: This article is also appearing on our sister site, VAMPIRES.COM. It features a snippet of story containing both a vampire AND a werewolf, and them getting into a tussle, and since I’ve been given permission by the management to pimp my new novel, available NOW, I figured, why not. (I am adding this additional…Continue readingI Got Interviewed! (The Remix)
This was without a doubt my favorite episode of the season so far, the most enjoyable and the one that felt the most like “vintage” TWIN PEAKS. It was a delight that over half the episode’s action actually took place in the titular township, or so it seemed, with familiar faces, and faces that have…Continue readingTWIN PEAKS Recap – 7/23/17
Stephen King’s CUJO was the first out-and-out Horror novel I ever read, excepting Peter Benchley’s JAWS when I was in first grade. I was in seventh grade when I read CUJO. As with JAWS, my mother bought me a cheap used paperback at a yard sale. She really had no idea what was between those…Continue readingScrewing with Cujo
The stars on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” are more for us, the fans, the “common people,” than they are for the stars. When a living celebrity gets one, and gets to go put his hands in concrete (or is that somewhere else?) and gets to celebrate the fact that he has one, then it…Continue readingGive The Wolfman a Star!
There are those who feel movies about infamous crimes or infamous criminals shouldn’t be made, as doing so glorifies the said criminals and their actions. This is a legitimate concern. On the other hand, such crimes are a part of history, and it is never a good idea to gloss over the ugly parts of…Continue readingQuentin and Chuck
“You’ve been told time and time again not to go in the woods after dark; he’s the reason why. The Limb Ripper stalks the edges of the woods, weaving between twisted trees and fallen leaves, just waiting for the next lost traveler to cross his path. His glowing eyes will paralyze you, leaving you defenseless…Continue readingThe Limb Ripper
Whatever movie ends up winning the Oscar next year, it won’t be any better than this one. There are folks calling for Andy Serkis to get nominated for a Best Actor award, the way they were after his performance as Gollum. As was the case back then, he won’t get it. Woody Harrelson also deserves…Continue readingReview: WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
Sasquatch or guy in a monkey suit? It’s kinda hard to tell from this distance. I’m referring to the photograph above, supposedly taken by the body cam of a conservation officer near the “Howardsville Bridge.” Nice of them to tell us the name of the bridge but not the name of the river. The article,…Continue readingBigfoot in the Virginias
As I understand it, modern Mexico City isn’t a nice place. No slight intended; I’ve never been there. There may be parts that are lovely. I’m only going by things I’ve read and things I was told by a former resident of that metropolis, who described it as “hell on earth.” His words, not mine.…Continue readingAztec Golden Wolf
This is big news to all us Monsterkidz of a certain demographic, those of us old enough to remember the glory days of Halloween costumes and little rubber action figures. The “Ben Cooper” company made both, and they were inexpensive, flimsy works of art. No, Art! Capital “A” Art. When I was a wee bairn,…Continue readingBen Cooper Is Coming Back!
Has it been a year already? Man, sometimes I can’t believe how quickly the ol’ tempus fugits. I wish it would slow down. I’d love for time to pass as slowly in the summertime now as it did in the summers of my childhood, back when I was a kid in school, like cool molasses.…Continue readingA Plea to Warner Brothers: We Need More TARZAN
Four simple words spoken by the Log Lady (insert sadface emoji here) confirms what we all kinda knew already from the acid-trip episode a couple’a weeks back, when we saw Laura Palmer’s essence materialize from the head of The Giant and go floating out into the ether: There’s something special about Laura. Like, cosmically special.…Continue readingTWIN PEAKS Recap: Laura Is The One
This one bugged me, so I had to get to the bottom of it. I will share my findings with you all, on the off-chance that somebody out there, somewhere, has been likewise flummoxed over this one. Ready? There’s this guy, Ted Dekker. He’s a Christian Fiction author. He co-authored a book called HOUSE along…Continue readingClearing up the (confusion concerning) HOUSE(S)
Well, it’s here. My first novel. It’s available for purchase, for mass consumption. After many, many years of toil and strife, my first book has clawed its way into the light of day. Please consider giving it a try. It’s only $2.99. Worth taking a gamble on. I think you’re gonna like it. I can…Continue readingTHE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF
A pleasant little surprise this morning, guaranteed to make my day better. I log-in to ye trusty ole social media site, and learn that a new trailer for the upcoming ANOTHER WOLFCOP has dropped. This is a cause for celebration! 2014’s WOLFCOP was such a sweet surprise. Early glimpses made it look like some cheesy…Continue readingAnother Trailer for ANOTHER WOLFCOP
I’ve just finished watching the entire first (and waaaaaay too short) season of STRANGER THINGS on my new DVD. Yeah, I bought the DVD. I’m a “Collector,” see. Toys, figures, movies, posters, any and all kinds and sorts of pop culture ephemera. We Collectors don’t much go in for this “streaming” and “digital access” stuff.…Continue readingAnachronisms in STRANGER THINGS
Now we’re at the top of the hill, starting to roll downhill. The second half of the season has begun. I think I’ve figured out the symbolism of the underarm rash. Is it all really starting to bug you yet? Irritating? And you just can’t stop scratching it? Or else you’re starting to break out,…Continue readingTWIN PEAKS – An Itch That Must be Scratched
It slipped past me, I admit. I was sick for a good week and a half with the worst allergies I’ve ever experienced (I blame global warming) and then I was traveling–and yes, there was some overlap, which resulted in me trying to conduct an interview with no voice whatsoever, which was an interesting experience–so…Continue readingThe Anniversary of John Logan’s Shame
While visiting the shop of curiosities out of which Chattanooga Ghost Tours is based this past weekend, and interviewing owner Amy Petulla on the subject of the legendary (’round these parts) severed head of the Beast of Sugar Flats Road (see separate article), I heard another story that I knew I had to share with…Continue readingThe Cursed Skull of Chattanooga Ghost Tours
I sometimes have to remind myself that I write not for a regional audience, or even a national one, but for an international one. With such being the case, not everyone who reads this will automatically be familiar with the tourism hotspot of the Southeast that is Chattanooga, Tennessee. A beautiful destination with tons of…Continue readingThe Sugar Flats Road Monster Head of Chattanooga Ghost Tours
I already own the adorable Funko version of the Demogorgon. He sits and stares at me as I type this article, in fact–if he CAN stare. I have yet to see any pronounced eyes on the guy. No eyes, no nose, just that flower-petal head and all those TEETH! Oh, but wait…Funko is making these…Continue readingSTRANGER THINGS Action Figures On The Way
Yes, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be tussling with the classic Universal Monsters. That sounds awesome. And it even gets awesome-er: the voice of Dracula will be provided by star of FRIGHT NIGHT Chris Sarandon! (No word yet on who will be voicing the Wolfman, but it’s a safe bet it WON’T be Dwayne…Continue readingTMNT vs. Universal Monsters
Although this article ‘chere assures us that the legendary Director, responsible for a little film called AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON as well as Michael Jackson’s THRILLER video, among numerous other films, “bashed” Universal’s new DARK UNIVERSE of planned films, his criticisms weren’t actually that harsh. In addition, he was spot-on, for the most part.…Continue readingJohn Landis on the new DARK UNIVERSE of Monsters
Actually, it’s only one toe, the same toe. And this article doesn’t quite qualify for inclusion as a report on anthrophagy, aka cannibalism, but it’s close enough. Besides, I thought it was funny. We all need a little levity, don’t you think? Sure we do. In that spirit, then, may I present to you all…Continue readingA Tale of Two Toes
First things first. I understand that, to some people, the term “queer” is pejorative. I understand this is common amongst older members of the gay community, whereas younger folks have taken the word and attempted to recreate it as something positive. I don’t use it here to be offensive, but in the spirit in which…Continue readingQueer Teenage Werewolves to the, um, rescue?
