Monster Madness

Alright, so there may be a glimmer of hope for all of us monster lovers out there. It seems that the quality of good ole monster movies has declined in the recent years. Now Cabin in the Woods was definitely a movie that I would put on my monster awesomeness scale at about an 8/10. It just seems that the film industry is persistent in regards to vomiting a bunch of slasher remakes and paranormal movie mishaps all over us. I have always been a fan of foreign films/television and in my scope of research I have found this upcoming movie that may have some potential. The French have been dangling this movie in my face for months now and refuse to give me a U.S. release date. Dead Shadows starring John Fallon not to be confused with Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp. The trailer depicts a bit of zombie action with a mix of alien tentacle goodness and of course a bat wielding hero . The reviews that I have read so far have been very promising and although the movie will never hit U.S. theaters I am sure it will circulate through Netflix, Amazon or other movie sites. I apologize that this is not an actual movie review but more of a rambling about my excitement, I just wanted to share with everyone who may not be familiar with international film. Cheers!!!

It's who I am...

Ello good people… First Post, where to start? It’s hard for me to describe what this here blog will be about, however if I had to break it down to a genre I can assure you it is Horror & Sci-Fi. My goal is to get on here and write and/or connect to the world of creative peoples in an effort to prevent my brain from rotting. My current full time profession has a way of sucking the intelligence out of you. Soon one becomes that dumbed down fool that finds themselves slang banging in conversations with intelligent people in the real world. For the sake of everyone involved I will not name said profession but will just mention that one in said profession works with the more law abiding citizens of the county (Sarcasm included). I can’t say that I will write on here every day or even every week but I can say that I will try to make checking my blog out worth your time.

My other “profession” more like hobby is that of the assistant/handler for the talented Horror Author/ Comic Book writer K.N. Porter. I assure you this blog will remain professional and I will avoid carrying on about how amazing she is in every other sentence. I will be promoting the shit out of her stuff though; I mean that is the point of this whole social media arena in the first place, right?

So let’s recap… You will probably enjoy this blog if you enjoy one or more of the following:

• Anything Horror (Books, Artists, TV, Movies, Conventions)
• Anything Sci-Fi (Books, Artists, TV, Movies, Conventions)
• Comic Books/Graphic Novels and Comic Conventions
• Independent Authors
• Very talented artists
• Eclectic taste in music
• Reading about others maniacal travel adventures (Pictures included)
• Hellboy, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Walking Dead, True Blood, Guillermo Del Toro
• other weird shit….

Well thanks for your time, if in fact you actually spent the time to read anything but this last sentence.
