Check Out FEAR OF THE WOODS

“Alaska 1993. A snowstorm has trapped the small mountain town. Now it’s up to a group of rebellious teenagers to save their town that don’t believe in monsters.” So reads the synopsis—poorly. Is the “small mountain town” supposed to be named “Alaska”? That’s how the synopsis makes it sound. And they’re out to save a…

The Wolf of Passau

I don’t remember the last time, before the other night, that I tuned into public television. As it so happened, I was setting the DVR to record the Charlie Brown Christmas cartoon, which aired this year exclusively on public television because Apple bogarted the broadcast rights, and I noticed the program airing directly before good…

THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF Part 58

There’s a new theory that human beings who have suffered heart attacks or strokes (But are still alive afterward, obviously—Wait. Is it “afterward” or “afterwards”? Ah, pardon me while I chase down this rabbit…Okay, just googled it. I was right. There’s no difference. While the Internet says that “afterward” is more common in the US…

Get Bent!

Or “bended”, to be more correct, maybe? It doesn’t sound as powerful, though, as the header of an article. “Get bended.” No, it lacks a little of the ring, the ironic forcefulness. But since we’re talking about bendable action figures—you know, action figures with wire skeletons covered with rubber flesh that you can pose any…
