I’m a fairly old school dude. Unlike people who shall remain nameless (ahem, Jimmy O'shea Chase), I at least try to give these millennial trends a chance before summing ‘em up as suck. Still, my track record with new shit isn’t very good. This spans from movies to music … by God a lot of this newish music just fuckin’ blows. With that in mind, I was very apprehensive about giving Fear Town USA the old gander. I skipped over it several times because it just sounded like one of those Kings of Horror flicks, which are flat out terrible more often than not. And when I learned it was a horror-comedy, I was even more iffy, because comedy is highly subjective. But OHH boy was I trippin’ because as the kids say, this movie is the tits! Fear Town USA takes on the dubious challenge of trying to wrap a multitude of core plots into one story. We’ve got the four virgin nerds on a mission to finally score some sex, in addition...

As Halloween approaches, the butterflies start to flutter, the anxiety creeps in, and the stress level soars through the roof. Nothing signifies just how close we are to release (giggity) like the great cover reveal. Well, I guess it’s technically the game menu screen. Any way, this design is based on the very same cover for the original story I created nearly six years ago to the day. I wasn’t sure about how much I wanted to retain, but I ended up keeping everything intact, for the most part. Name and all. The design itself is mostly a minor cosmetic update. Brighter reds in the blood, more realistic knife, etc. The little details. Don’t tell my wife that though. She put a lot of work into this.While there’s still a couple days to go for the visual novel, the ebook version of The Rave: Lucky Number 13 is available on Amazon. I published it under my Blake Jeckel alter ego, mainly, because I didn’t have a lot of faith in. I honestly think this...

In our first two days of horror, we took an extended look at how and why us crazy humans use horror movies to scare ourselves. These days, my idea of self-induced terror involves strapping on the headphones … cause it’s much more frightening with headphones … cuing up the videos, and, well … you know There’s actually a little video game about it. And little ole me decided to ramble up a review on it.   (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)...

We came slashing through with the Four Horsemen of Death. We’ve dedicated sizable slivers to the maniacal Firefly Family, Charles Lee Ray and Hoghead 😱. But there are other, lesser known horror movie characters who are just as evil and delightfully wicked as their iconic counterparts. In this long ass 26-minute video, I introduce five horror movie legends who deserve a blood-soaked pedestal of their own. Good luck!!! ...

As we’ve learned from clowns, slashers, and vampires (oh my!), horror movies come in a wide variety of sub-genres. One of my favorite subs, at least to watch, is exploitation … but of the pervy persuasion. Sexploitation flicks, at their raunchiest, blur the lines of R-rated and softcore porn. And while not all sexploitation movies fall in the horror category, the best usually do. This is where you’ll find classic films like the totally bonkers Cannibal Holocaust, which crosses quite a few sub-genres under the horror umbrella. Where lesser known directors like Joe D'Amato are viewed as legends and celebrated for their artistic vision. Although they’ll always be in style to some degree, I think the sexploitation sub had it’s most prolific run back in the 70’s, which just seemed like an interesting and fun time to be alive. Some of the most entertaining horror flicks I’ve recently watched come from this era, including the insanely awesome Evil Come, Evil Go. As I mentioned in my video review (which is fuckin’ terrible), this movie gets...

Sweetest Day of Death

The roots of Sweetest Day can be traced back to the early 1900’s in a burgeoning town situated along the US-Canadian border. According to legend, a man by the name of Sava Ho was head over heels for a young woman many locals hailed as one of the most beautiful in town. Sava, a captain in the Coast Guard at the time, had no trouble attracting the woman’s attention. Capturing her undivided affection, however, was another story. Some might say he was the poster boy for chivalry. And when it came to courting his beloved, Sava spared no expense. Top of the line home furnishings. Fully stocked pantry. The fanciest sweaters and corduroy pants for all six of her children. Try as he may, it just wasn’t enough. There were always rumors. Whispering throughout the neighborhood about the pampered damsel who was both unsatisfied and unfaithful to the man who held her down for so long. Until one day, a fed up Sava groveled to his lady, “What’s it gonna take, huh? What...

About half way through seems like just the right time for a cheap plug. It’s the reason we’re here. The Rave! I wrote this little horror story about six years ago. My very first one, too. I was so unsure about it that I had to attach a pen name to it … cause it sucked! However, the story itself, the concept, the premise, is something I think has potential, so I decided to re-animate it in the form of a visual novel. Picture it: a drug-fueled underground party in the abandoned abomination that once housed Detroit’s Packard Plant … with a cannibalistic madman lurking in the background. I just couldn’t let it die!   I talked about visual novels in videos and few other places, but what we basically have here is a book/novel with mostly still images, music and sound effects, packaged into an app that runs on virtually any device. This form of visual storytelling encourages interaction by allowing readers to get involved and make choices at various points, which is why...

15 Of The World’s Scariest Haunted Houses

15 Of The World's Scariest Haunted HousesIf you love horror movies, then the idea of haunted houses probably sounds yummidelish. I feel the same way … more or less. There was a time when I’d look forward to these elaborately designed horror-themed adventures every Halloween season. Be it teaming up with friends, or bringing my little sister along, we headed into the coordinated depths of the unknown with the sole purpose of scaring the proverbial shit out of ourselves. Nowadays, I look at haunted houses like ‘meh’. Don’t get me wrong, the concept is still cool as fuck, but with me being so busy, plus long ass lines, being in the presence of humanoids … yeah, I’m even less of a people person north of 40 … paranoia from too much horror, too much weed, and too little faith in humanity … yeah, the thrill is gone. I am a bit bummed that I never got to experience one of those “so scary and complex we’ll give you a refund if you make...
