A Remake of PUMPKINHEAD

According to Bloody Disgusting, who claim the “scoop”, the company Paramount Players is working on a remake of PUMKINHEAD. Should they be, though? I’m conflicted, but right now leaning towards the die of “no”. Why remake a movie that you cannot possibly improve upon? On the other side of the argument, there’s, well, more Pumpkinhead.…

Predator and PREY

After PREDATORS proved to be am entertaining film, solid enough on its own but incapable of capturing the lightening in the jar created by the original 80s hit PREDATOR, and then the follow-up THE PREDATOR being such a big letdown, does the potential audience have any enthusiasm left for this franchise? Sure the Horror faithful…

BLACKMANE Chapter 65

Very close-up portrait of a lion with jaws wide open on black background.

People are strange, Adam thought. He had awakened in the late afternoon, when Moe had returned, pushing her shopping cart on its squeaky wheels. “Got you some water,” she’d said, reaching into the cart. “Found a couple a’ milk jugs in a dumpster. Went ahead an’ filled ’em up. Figure we’ll need ’em, seein’ how…

BLACKMANE Chapter 64

Hamm blinked, squeezed the steering wheel. It made sense, now that he thought about it. “She wants her critter back,” Hamm said. “She wants it destroyed,” the man said. “But she is adamant, it must be she who does the destroying. She wants the Zanyo Gazi’i brought to her alive.” Hamm nodded. It made perfect…

Jason vs. the Wolfman

I must confess, I’m something of a snob about certain things. Fan fiction, for example. Never cared for it. I read “fan fiction” and I immediately think “rank amateur”. If a person had any ability he’d be writing real stuff, not fake fluff. Sorry/not sorry, but that’s my knee-jerk reaction. That goes for fan-made movies,…

There’s also a new trailer you can check out by clicking here. We know the titles of the episodes, too. “The Hellfire Club”. “Vecna’s Curse”. “The Monster and the…

Werewolf by Night is (Mis)Cast

It isn’t the least bit surprising that the powers-that-be would choose to go not with the original Werewolf by Night from the comics, Jack Russell. Russell is supposed to be Caucasian, and they’ve put enough Caucasians in their movies and television shows, they figure. They’re going to use the second character from the comics to…

BLACKMANE Chapter 63

Worst case scenario, he always had the gun in the glove compartment. A .357 Magnum. Loaded, ready to fire. Phil Hamm kept it that way. You never knew when you might need it. Thinking about the gun in the glove compartment made him feel a little better, but not much. They sat in Hamm’s minivan,…

BLACKMANE Chapter 62

The footsteps stopped outside his stall. There were feet showing in the gap under the door. “This one here’s occupied.” Hamm tried to make his voice sound normal. The feet didn’t move. Black feet, wearing sandals. “Somethin’ I can help you with?” Hamm said. “Come out, please.” Hamm’s chest clenched. Something coiled and writhed in…

BLACKMANE Chapter 61

The kids used to make fun of him, because of his name. Philly Hamm! they called him. Philly Cheesesteak! He was a fat kid, too, so the names had a double meaning. God, how he hated it. Hated them. Sometimes now, as an adult, he’d tell the kids to call him that. It made it…
