American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 3 Review


American Horror Story is one of the more addicting horror television programs that I’ve seen in a long time. Each episode keeps drawing me into a whole new world of story telling and second guessing. I thought I had this thing figured out, then a wrench is thrown into my view, and I have to think on my feet to get moving towards a resolution. The third episode brought onto the screen several different story milestones and things are just beginning, which makes this so much better to watch than your average movie.

At this point in the story we get to find out the original owners of the house of murder, as they are calling it. There was a strange doctor that was giving abortions to women in his basement and there are some interesting Frankenstein moments where he’s working what appears to be a chimaera of sorts. The visuals here are impressive, and I definitely thought hit was a strong point in the episode.

Meanwhile in the present, the marriage that has been rocked by infidelity continues to unravel when the mistress shows up and says she’s keeping the baby. Our two faced friend comes through with a much needed helping shovel to the face which was awesome. However, not all is safe as the doctor is being drugged by someone, and he think it’s the maid!

This is quite the interesting point in the series, with a murder, a helper, and someone trying to drug the man of the house. I liked the way it was going, and it was apparent that the show is building up to something. I haven’t quite made out whether everyone is dead, if only a few of them are dead, or this is all a dream.

American Horror Story season 1 episode 3 really does do a good job of mixing storytelling with horror in a quick capsule of around 40 some odd minutes. It kept me interested, which is hard to do with television programming. I’ll have another review updated sooner than later.

American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 2 Review


After yesterday’s sex filled episode featuring a guy in a full gimp suit, I was wondering what the second episode would have in store for me, and it really let me down in the sexual department, although there were definitely some nice overtones. This second episode opened up with a 1970s serial killer rampage inside the home that the new family is now living in, and it was done quite good. Without revealing too much gore the shots were well edited, and the elements of fear were set into motion within a few minutes of the opening sequencing. I thought it was a great opener and really set the tone for everything else.

The show moved into an odd story line in which the father has to lie about going to Boston to see his former lover, and in the meantime the wife and daughter are terrorized by a group that is hell bent on reenacting the crime from the opening sequence.

This episode did two things very well, it told another piece of the story about the house, and it also set up another distrust angle between the husband and the wife. I thought those two emotional connections really shown through the underlying tension that was had.

Visually, this second episode ramped up things and while I was still confused by a great deal of the plot points, I found myself mesmerized with many of the details, wondering how far this thing would truly get. I found that there were some great moments overall, and the clich├ęs that plagued many slasher films were not found here. In fact, it was quite the opposite, getting me to cheer for the family as they fought their way back to life rather than accepting the fate of a serial killer or the rampage of lunatics.

The end of the episode left me thinking about what I would do in the situation, and I wasn’t able to answer. I’m probably a big wuss. Episode 2 of American Horror Story Season 1 is quite good, and is still delivering one hell of a punch.

American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 1 Review


Today instead of a movie review, I’ll be discussing the first episode of season 1 of American Horror Story, which is currently available through a variety of streaming outlets as well as blu ray disc here. The show caught me off guard, and while I don’t have cable, I finally started to watch it through Netflix, and will be commenting on it, as well as posing some interior ideas, questions and thoughts on the show. If you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to skip this review and instead visit some of my previous work on the page. I also would ask you to click through the amazon links as they help me keep a roof over my head and food in my mouth.

The first episode of this show was definitely a good set up. A doctor is caught cheating on his wife, although we don’t get to see it in action, we hear noises, and the wife catches him. Dylan McDermott plays a cool doctor, and Connie Britton plays a lovely wife, and the two have an interest dynamic. Britton is hot, she’s absolutely a lady that I’d like to say what’s up to, and most likely get rejected by. Dylan is ripped in this role, and well the rest is quite interesting too. Jessica Lange plays an interesting role, and is looking well for her age.

The show doesn’t start with that plot, it starts with a haunted house which I couldn’t stop thinking about after I saw it. I make a lot of Amityville Horror jokes in the home, always talking about how I want to make a cookie cutter of the home, so that I can eat the house on a regular basis. This haunted house slays a couple of idiot kids for entering an abandoned area. They are warned not to go forward, but they go anyways and meet up with disaster.

The family after going through a crisis of infidelity move to my neck of the woods, Los Angeles and start over, in the same house the children were murdered inside of. From there strange things start to happen, and lead to a very sexy and lovely gimp sex scene with Connie Britton…hubba hubba…right right? Never mind.

This first episode most certainly sets a mean tone, with lots of points of interesting dialogue, emotion, and sexual tension. There’s a ghost story running rampant, a kleptomaniac neighbor, an autistic child, a suicidal teenager, a cutter, a milf, and a doctor that has the hots for the maid…which switches between old and young…oh god, I love the outfit.

American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 1 does a good job of keeping you entertained, and you immediately want to watch the next episode and find out what really is going on in the house. I suspect death, but who knows.

Stephen King on Kindle

Here at Scary Film Review, I spend a lot of time talking about horror movies. I also talk about video games, and television shows from time to time, but recently I’ve started to read a little more into the genre of the horror novel. Maybe it’s because I just finished an outline for my first fictional horror book, or maybe it’s just that I need to unwind a little after writing so many words per day. One horror writer that you’re never going to run away from is going to be obvious to you. With the advent of digital books and media, you’ll often find people ditching the dictionary sized paperbacks, and hardcovers for Stephen King on Kindle.

The master of horror writes a lot, and that’s an understatement. If you’re looking to get some of his work on your e-reader, consider my list of must own books from Stephen King on Kindle.



The Shining by Stephen King – Forget what you’ve seen on film, forget what you think you know, and forget the story that you saw parodied on the Simpsons, this is the book that I’m told will scare you to death. A fascinating journey into desperation is found here and the page count is much easier to manage in digital format.



11/22/63 by Stephen King – What would happen if you could go back in time and prevent a tragedy? One man tries in this time travel book of historical proportions! If you want hours and hours of material, here are 866 pages of storytelling for you to sink your teeth into.



Salem’s Lot by Stephen King – Vampires and the King of horror? (No pun intended) This is a story that is deep with symbolism and it doesn’t take an English major to see the many layers that get peeled away for you to explore. If you haven’t read it, or you aren’t sure, then at least consider that Eminem created a simile in a song about his life about this book. So if it’s good enough for a #1 song, it’s good enough for you to read.

If you’re looking for some reading, and you want to get scared or you simply enjoy the rich tapestry and rambling that the most prolific horror novelist creates, I recommend the aforementioned Stephen King on kindle selections. If you haven’t purchased the device and you are going to be doing so, click here to purchase the device and get yourself some books while you’re at it.

Open House Review


I love a good movie poster, especially those that can be doubled as porno movie posters. I grew up in a time where video stores weren’t corporate at all. The Asian people in my neighborhood owned them and they would actually put up awesome horror movie posters in the horror section. With that in mind, I was able to watch this classic 1980s slasher flick of epic proportions called Open House.

The plot of this movie is a lot like a Dario Argento Gialo mystery horror film. The movie features a great deal of mystery and you only see the weapon, the killing, and the aftermath as you roll through the movie. The villain isn’t exposed and nothing is explained until the end. As the story goes, a radio disc jockey and a real estate agent are embroiled in a situation where people are getting killed inside vacant homes for sale. When a red herring appears not to be the culprit, the killer sets his eyes on the disc jockey’s girlfriend, who just happens to be a real estate agent!

The movie is funny at moments, but gets really serious at times as well. The movie is set up exactly as you would expect from a slasher movie of the time, and it picks up in the final moments, only to get the same tone as Rambo! The ending is just odd, and the villain doesn’t appear to be as smart as he does in the rest of the movie.

For fans of gratuitous nudity, there is an awesome 1980s style nude scene at one point that just goes to show that the bodies of yesteryear were just so much more natural than what you see today. I think I went through puberty again at one point, but I’ll digress.

The movie isn’t particularly good, it doesn’t have a lot to remember other than the classic Argento style, but I really wanted to just see an Italian horror film and not this thing. You’re not missing much here, except for the cool poster.

Open House is not worth your time, unless you’re like me, and you have to see all things horror movies.

Coffin Rock Review


I remember when Wolf Creek came out, I fell asleep, and don’t remember much of the elements of it. The producer of that film was the main draw for me on this one, as it seemed pretty cool. That being said, today we will look into the film Coffin Creek, as it is an interesting tale of lurid acts, consequences, and horror. Even though it’s not listed as straightforward horror, it’s still got enough elements to scare people into thinking twice about indiscretions.

The plot of the film revolves around a couple in Australia trying to conceive. Apparently there is something wrong, as is the case with many older couples trying to have children. My version of this movie would have lasted about 10 minutes, because I would have mentioned adoption. But I’ll digress, the couple is trying to have a child but they aren’t having such a good time with it. After trying to no avail, the main character has sex with a drifter in a drunken mistake, and that sets into motion a major catastrophe.

The drifter starts to become a part of the couples life, and when it turns out that the wife is pregnant, our now stalker believes it’s his child. This sets into motion a series of events that involves all sorts of insanity, including the death of a baby kangaroo, setting a man on fire, running someone over, getting dumped off a cliff and some more gruesome points.

The movie is an exercise in futility when the end showcases a twist that I saw coming a mile away. In a way the movie reminded me of the Richard Gere movie “Unfaithful”. While that movie seemed to work in a way, this one seemed to lack that certain sexuality that it needs to fully come to a climax. (No pun intended)

The movie dragged at one point and it just seemed to play to the development of an anti-hero, but that too never came to full fruition. When the final act starts, things start to move fast, with a certain level of emotional pacing that made me like how it all turned out, but even that doesn’t save this film from being one of the movies that I wouldn’t necessarily recommend to everyone. It is a much better movie than some of the other films with similar stories, mainly because of the drifter’s psychosis. However, it’s not that memorable, with exception of the final act, which featured some cool spots. Coffin Rock is a cool movie if you have a couple of hours to kill, but you don’t need to own it.

Top 5 Hardcore Revenge Horror Films

When it comes to certain genres of horror films, many people start to question their validity as pure entertainment. For instance, many people can’t stomach certain scenes in cinema that depict sexual situations that are of a “forced” nature. To put it bluntly, rape. There is nothing entertaining about that in the real world, yet the horror genre likes to put a spin on it, allowing viewers to see the atrocity in full view then come back with a punch to the balls of anyone that found it funny or even remotely entertaining. How do they do it? Simple. They introduce a revenge plot in which the raped woman or male in certain instances gets full revenge in the most cartoonish of ways, or in some cases the most atrocious of ways.

When thinking about hardcore revenge horror films, 5 stand out as some of the best and worst in many different ways. That’s why today we will be briefly spotlighting 5 of those movies that made me cringe or at least open my eyes wider as revenge is a dish best served piping hot full of shi……never mind.



#5 I Spit On Your Grave (1978) – This controversial movie came out with a brutal premise, but it doesn’t just go from bad times to bad times, there’s a reversal of roles and no sin is left unpunished. Well, unless you count the sin of low budget cinema and production flaws, but it was 1978, a different era in movie making, right? Anyways, this movie was remade, but lacked the substance and style of this original. If you are into genital mutilation revenge plots ala “Ricco The Mean Machine” then you have to look at t his one as one of the best examples of revenge!



#4 Last House on the Left (1972) – What was it with the 70s? Some of the most violent and disturbing images came out throughout those damn hippy years! Whatever the case is, Wes Craven proved to shock the movie world with a revenge kidnapping plot that had some more, well genital mutilation. This one is still worth checking out after all these years. Once again the remake doesn’t hold a candle to the original.



#3 Last House on the Beach (1978) – Eurotrash fans will love this classic tale that turns into a swift revenge plot. Teenage girls alone at a beach house are brutally messed up by thugs, and when one of the girls is skilled, our main heroine decides enough is enough and it’s time to get REVENGE!



#2 Northville Cemetery Massacre (1976) – Touted as one of the ultimate biker flicks of all time, this movie features a mix of all things exploitation film and all things revenge. You get a sense for violence where there are no heroes, and when the law rapes a young woman, it’s the lawless that have to man up and lay down, well….the LAW!



#1 Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1973) – This is the ultimate of all of the revenge films you’re going to see in regards to the premise of hardcore. This one takes the cake in a lot of ways. If you get the unrated version, this movie turns into a XXX romp; with a slow motion pop shot that is not only disturbing, but also very stimulating for those that like to see that sort of thing. One girl, one eye, one shotgun, and that’s all you need to know!

If you like revenge films, these are your #1 stunners, and they are definitely worth purchasing for your collection. If you’re going to buy anything from amazon, please click here to visit there and bookmark the page. It helps me keep writing about this stuff and it costs you nothing extra. Thank you.

5 Horror Movie Reviews You Missed

I’ve been hard at work writing this website for about 5 years now. It has lasted longer than most of my other attempts at writing on the web, with the exception of my WWE review website that I still have up and update from time to time. My love for horror movies started a young age and through my years I have made sure to write commentary, reviews, and all sorts of things online about them.

Since today I didn’t have time to review a full movie, I decided to talk about 5 horror movie reviews that you’re missing out on. With 750+ reviews done on this site, it can be a daunting task to read everything that I have posted. In order to compensate for that, here is a quick 5 horror movie reviews that you’re missing out on that you might want to look into.

Jack Frost dvd

#5 Jack Frost Review – It’s that time again for the wintertime, and you better believe I did reviews on a variety of holiday horror movies. I did it two years in a row looking for only that type of movie to talk about. Jack Frost is one of the better ones that I found, but that’s not saying a whole lot.



#4 LIfeforce – Today you can get this movie in a variety of different ways, but when I first wrote about it, that movie was hard to find and wasn’t going to be easy to get a hold of. Now, you can even find it through Netflix. Oh well, the review was up and is up rather, and my writing suffers when I am tired.

Chaos 2005

#3 Chaos (2005) – This rare out of print movie is the hardest movie I’ve ever seen at the time. However, a Serbian Film tips the scales because that movie is just pure evil. This one though, is hard to watch on a variety of levels. It’s probably one of the hardest non-pornographic movies I’ve seen ever.

Basket Case 3

#2 Basket Case 3 – I’m one of the few bloggers that wrote about this out of print movie long ago. I’m sure it’s now in print, but I remember having a poster on my wall of this film in High School, and always loved the premise of having a Siamese twin in a BASKET! This one is outlandish, and reminds me of a better time in horror movie history.

dt

#1 Death Note – An under-appreciated film that really didn't live up to the hype, but maybe I should give it a second chance...I don't know.

Click through those 5 reviews from the past, and remember leave a comment anywhere and you can win The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 on Blu Ray.

One last thing, if you’re gong to shop on Amazon.com please click here to visit that site and support the writing, blogging and career of yours truly. At the time of this writing I do nothing else but write for a living. I would prefer not to go back to the 9 to 5 world, but might have to if I can’t make these things work. So if you are going to shop at amazon click here, or visit the Best Horror Movie site here. Thank you.

The Best Horror Movies in 3D

The third dimension, that place that allows you to jump into the movies and be a part of the action, at least if your eyes don’t automatically correct everything you’re watching. I wear glasses, so every time I see a 3D movie, I end up seeing things from a 2D perspective. Damn you genes! Oh and damn you jeans! I like Dickies, but that’s neither here nor there, or underwear! SCORE!

Sorry.

The Best Horror Movies in 3D definitely has a lot of people arguing, and if you search the online world, you’ll find all sorts of opinions on the matter. I find that my top 5 list that will be found here will also bring about a lot of arguments. But let’s be civil and see what my personal pick of the best 5 horror movies in 3D are! (Make sure to comment if you want to win the prize this month)

#5 – Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D



One year before I was born the people that made Jason a household name though that they could top the box office records set by their slasher film by throwing logic out of the window and selling those nifty paper and plastic lenses (the red and blue ones, those were rad) and what ensued was a maddening entrance of horror and slasher glory! This is by far one of my (5th actually) favorite movies in 3D! You can tell things were done for “cheese” factor because if it weren’t, someone would’ve been fired.

#4 – Saw VII: The Final Saw 3D



I still think that they can do “Son of Saw” or something, but whatever. The seventh film in the series, and the seventh movie that I plopped $12 to go see was done in 3D and I for one enjoyed myself. I loved the way the guts and stuff flew through the camera while I was trying to cut a hole in my popcorn…err…I didn’t really do that. I am not that smooth, and I don’t even remember seeing this with anyone. Saw VII is one of those movies that you either love or hate, and I for one didn’t hate it.

#3 – Amityville 3D



This movie came out and blew open the doors of the third dimension and made me as fall asleep. It was a remake that really wasn’t half bad, and even though I feel that the whole Amityville thing is overrated, they most certainly created a pretty cool landscape worth checking out again and again.

#2 – House of Wax 3D



It was the 1950s and while many chicks and dudes were making out in the backseat of their fancy cars, I’d like to think that there were some brave people watching House of Wax in 3D! Yep, this is a pretty cool upgrade to the original film, and it featured that classic Vincent Price take on horror. I might have said he was overrated in the past, but it’s pretty cool to see how this was part of the 3D horror landscape. It still holds up pretty well, and the music, well that’s the key to the thrills, right? Right?

#1 – Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare



I was 8 years old when this movie came out and was excited! My dad took me to see this awesome 3D movie and I bought into the whole 3D thing wearing my glasses through the whole thing. Even though the movie wasn’t amazing, it still had enough gusto to make my 8-year-old heart skip a beat here and there. It holds up ok, and the Iggy Pop song is still cool overall.

There you have it, my top 5 best 3D Horror Movies, what do you think? Leave me a comment and you could win The Walking Dead Season 1 & 2 on Blu Ray. Oh and please shop on amazon.com here, it will help me stay away from working a 9 to 5 and get more prizes for the months to come!

The Twilight Zone Complete Series Blu Ray box set is one of the best gifts that you can give a horror fan for any occasion. Not only do you get every episode in high definition glory, you don’t have to wait for those pesky commercials to get in the way. My biggest gripe with the marathons that are shown on television each holiday season is the fact that they edit the show down to fit in as many commercials as possible. Not only that, some of the episodes are skipped, the order is jumbled, and the scenes are deleted. The reason being is because of time constraints, and that’s fair, but here in this edition you get it all and then some.

The first thing that you’ll notice here is the transfer. The transfer of each episode was carefully done to showcase the true power of the hi-def display, and it comes through with shining glorious clarity. The show, videos, and all visuals look stunning and truly are worth the asking price.

When you purchase The Twilight Zone Complete Series Blu Ray box set you will also get a bonus documentary entitled “Rod Serling: Submitted For Your Approval”, which is something that many collectors had previously had to fight to get on eBay an other sites.

The extra features are done right with this set, so you know you’re getting quality. Some of the features that come inside this set include audio commentaries, radio dramas from the original radio broadcasts, video interviews, conversations with Rod Serling, highlights from the seminar featured at the Museum of Television and Radio, isolated music scores, Twilight Zone ads, stills, blooper reel, Saturday Night Live clip, Twilight Zone comic book, and a complete script for twenty-two of the shows with handwritten notes from Serling!

I’ve purchased a lot of box sets in my day, and most of them have isolated features and extras, but this one is really worth checking out, especially for all the episodes that you’ve seen in your past. Never before has the whole show been transferred in such glory, which makes it a perfect example for other studios to follow when releasing sets.

If you have a fan of science fiction, horror, or just television in general, you owe it to yourself to pick up The Twilight Zone Complete Series Blu Ray box set.

Die Review


I’ve seen a lot of movies that copy others. Look through the archives of Scary Film Review and you will see a great deal of movies that I have watched and talked about that are completely ripped off from another famous or infamous movie. When I first read the premise for “DIE” I figured it was another clone of the “SAW” series, and while it pretty much is, there is a little bit of gusto to think about that will make you think a little.

The first thing that I noticed about the movie was the way they shot the main villain; he played and talked in the same manner that Bruce Wayne would talk. If you mixed the Dark Knight and Saw you would get this villain named Jacob. He speaks as though he’s doing something noble, but in reality he’s making another stab at The League of Shadows, only this is far more gruesome.

We are presented with a story about salvation, but it’s not what you might think. Six people show up in a dark warehouse and are wondering what is going on. They each have to roll a dice in order to see whether or not the other person will die. After going back and forth between different people, there are only a couple of people left to kill off before the villain reveals the purpose of this entrapment. Meanwhile, there is a rogue detective on the hunt, trying to figure out what is going on, who is kidnapping people and whether or not they are still alive.

The movie does a lot of things well, especially setting up a believable type of cult scenario. Jacob is by all intents and purposes a better villain than Jacob, and the “Jesus” salvation complex and visuals definitely plays to the favor of the movie. There was a bit of a slowdown in the middle of the movie, but after that, this thing truly went off the rails.

The visuals are nice, not too gorey, and there are sequences that were lifted directly from the Batman movies. You switch characters in here to match up the latter and it would be just fine. I found that to be the most compelling thing about this movie, which really plays like a made for television mini-series more than a full fledged film.

DIE is not a great movie, but it’s adequate and does the work that the SAW sequels didn’t get done in 5 tries. I liked it enough to recommend it, so make sure that you check it out. If you want a movie that mixes genres, this is definitely worth checking out. If you miss it, you’re not going to kick yourself, but if you’re a horror fan, you have to check it out. It’s another piece to the puzzle of watching all things scary movie. Hey, if I could sit through it, you probably can too, so check it out today.


The Walking Dead Spoilers


The Walking Dead television series is one of the best things I’ve seen on television in a long time. However, did you know that the whole series has already been written? Ok, so not every aspect is the same, but after talking to several different fans of the show, they have said that the comic books are better than the stories that you see on television because they are far ahead of what you see on the screen. Essentially, if you buy The Walking Dead Compendium here, you will have all the spoilers that you could possibly want from the show.

When you check out the first compendium, you will be getting the first 48 issues of the hit series in comic book form. It’s not adapted from the show; this is the original stories that MADE THE SHOW! If you want to see how things compare to the television version, you’ll want to check this out.

Right now, if you order The Walking Dead Compendium here, you will get a massive volume with 1,088 pages of non-stop action for nearly half off! No joke. If you are a fan of zombies, movies, and scary film, this is for you. I don’t usually recommend getting comic book volumes because they can cost you a lot for only a hundred or so pages, but this has no ads, and is over 1,000 pages!

The best thing about this is that if you purchase the book, you can knock someone out because it weighs a ton. The Walking Dead series is definitely going to go down in history as one of the best examples of horror on the small screen, and it all started with this series of comic books. This award winning series continues today, and if you haven’t invested into it, the time is now.

If you’re going to shop online for a comic book fan, yourself, or you just want to look around Amazon online, go ahead and look at The Walking Dead Compendium here, and see if it is something that you want to pick up. I own it, and it’s definitely far more compelling at times than the live action series. Check it out, and help support this blog.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Complete Box Set


If you’re a serious fan of Buffy, then you already own all the sets of this series and you’ve watched them several times, however, there are some of you that have held out on getting the series for yourself or a loved one for quite sometime. Well, the time is now to check out Buffy The Vampire Slayer Complete Box Set, which is available for nearly ½ off if you click here. This complete setup completes everything, and you get everything you could get from the show in one easy box set of epic proportions. (Terrible language, I know)

If you haven’t seen the show, or maybe just a few episodes, you should know that this show is definitely one of the great ones. What sets it apart from many others is the individual show scripts which go through several arcs that don’t really intertwine right away but get you hooked none the less. The casual viewer will definitely like some of the emotional stuff with a teenager subplot that seems to go through the same angst as you probably come to expect from a series that features, well, a teenager. However, there are moments where you realize that there’s something far more sinister going on, and when that opens up, you start to recognize why so many fans of this show have been diehard since day one.

When you purchase Buffy the Vampire Slayer Complete Box Set, you are not just investing in another television show that will sit on your shelf unwatched, you’re getting one of the most engaging horror television shows of all time. The show definitely transcends the moniker of being about a girl with super human abilities and starts to really charter a course through seven seasons of something more compelling than just your average angst fueled drama.

If you are a fan of the X-Files or any other kind of science fiction, or horror anthology, you’ll want to check this out because it most certainly has a large story, many seasons, and all the elements that you would expect from a vampire type narrative, without the glimmer and stupidity that is attributed to things like Twilight. You most certainly can’t go wrong with this set, especially if you’re planning on getting it for yourself or someone you know. Pick up Buffy The Vampire Slayer complete series here, and help make someone smile with ease.


Scary Film Review December 2012 Contest: Win Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 Blu Ray

Scary Film Review has had a great year. Somehow, by some miracle we have established a nice fan base of a few readers that like to leave a few comments, go to the facebook page and bug me, and then completely ignore me as well.

Since this is the season of giving, I wanted to give back to all 7 of you that still come by the site to read my random thoughts on horror. This month of December 2012 if you leave a comment, you will be entered into a chance to win The Walking Dead 1 and The Walking Dead 2 on BLU RAY!



To enter, you must leave a comment on any of the reviews that I’ve posted before or will post in the month of December.

This time, around I will make sure to make a big announcement as to who will win or wins after the New Year comes through.

My hope for this site in December is to get more interest in this site.

As you might know I’m 100% freelance and do not work a traditional 9 to 5. I write for a living and the past few months have been exceptionally difficult. To combat that, I have been taking on more and more work, doing 7 day (10 hour+) shifts and am burning out.

If you would like to help my cause, check out the Amazon links, book mark them and use them for your holiday shopping.

That’s it.

Other than that, happy commenting! The more you comment, the more times I’ll throw your name into the hat.

Oh and PLEASE DO NOT SPAM the comments. Drop me a legit comment, suggestion or something along those lines. Recommend this site to a friend, link back to me, and say hello, I spend a lot of time on the web.

If you would like to donate to the cause, (my cause) and have extra dough, you can always email me for my paypal address and donate that way. Thanks again.
