Movie Review: HUNTER HUNTER

I heard good things about this one. It got some grand reviews when it was making the rounds on the indy circuit. I’d hoped it would play in a theater close to my geographic location. It would’ve made for perfect pandemic-year fare, when independent Horror was, alone of all the genres, flourishing. Alas, it never…

Blurring Them Lines

Fifty-seven-year-old David Bennett Sr from Maryland just got a new heart. It wasn’t a human heart, rather a “genetically modified” heart from a pig. And it’s obviously working, as Mr. Bennett is alive and reportedly in good spirits. This is first and foremost a story of medical miracles, of technological advancement. But dealing as it…

Disney Yanks TURNING RED

I had planned to go see TURNING RED. I had figured to cover it for this site, dealing as it does with the subject of lycanthropy. Yes, the lead character transforms not into a wolf but into a giant red panda, but it still qualifies as lycanthropy. But now it looks less likely that I…

What Does the Fox Hear?

What could this cute video of a guy playing Bluegrass music for a fox possibly have to do with our subject matter here at this site? A lot more than you might think. “I’d been touring and playing hundreds of shows a year for nearly 20 years,” said the musician in question, “so it was…

The Roman Wolf

The headline of this linked article says that it’s a dog. I disagree. Take a look at the accompanying photo. Looks like a wolf, doesn’t it? At the very least it’s a dog that looks a lot like a wolf. Given the city, nee Empire, of Rome’s history with the wolf—the legendary founders of Rome…

BLACKMANE Chapter 78

Another gunshot, another. He is in the weeds now. He is near the drainage ditch. Down in the ditch he will be safe from the bullets. He cannot run now. He hobbles. He sees the tall slide on the playground. The pain makes it hard to think. Where is he going? The den. How far?…

BLACKMANE Chapter 77

He moves. He runs. He had intended to find Maribelle Tate and Judith Mocker after escaping from the lab. But he had not figured out how to do it. *I should have waited. I should not have escaped until I knew what I would do next.* The other inside him bristles. It had been the…

BLACKMANE Chapter 76

So many questions. So many things that he did not understand. If he does not answer the questions in his head he will go mad. But he cannot answer them. He cannot even ask them. Moe had been afraid, and he had left his den when she started throwing things at him. Where could he…
