Triggers in BIRD BOX

The monster in Netflix’s must-see new movie (for those who *can* see it!) must not be seen, else it infects a person’s mind and drives that person to suicide. Some of the suicides are apparently graphic in terms of their depiction. This has led to people on social media platforms issuing warnings to potential viewers…

TV Review: LEGEND HUNTER: THE BEAST OF BRAY ROAD

After disappointing me last week with their examination of the Lizzie Borden case, wherein they relied overly much on pseudoscience and hooey—they quoted from a theory put forward by a BASEBALL STATISTICIAN(!) that says Lizzie couldn’t have been guilty—with this week’s episode show host Pat Spain leans a little too much on the Science and…

What is it about Werewolves and Graveyards?

There’s going to be another “blood moon” lunar eclipse this month, and the religious wackjobs and con artists—and note that these two are often one and the same—are back at it, prognosticating on all sorts of occult implications for the event. It’s pure horsehockey. There are going to be something like 85 such lunar eclipses…
