* A Short, Horror Movie Review
Made, I'm sure on a small budget, A Walk Home Alone is filled with drama, sprinkled with suspense, and finally an ending worthy to be praised. It's not one of those you'd watch on repeat, because you can see the ending coming, but it's definitely worth the watch.
A Short, Horror Movie Review
So when you view horror movie shorts, you wonder if it's got the power to lure you in. To capture your attention, literally from the first, five seconds, through to the end, is an absolute must, yeah? Well, Placebo held me for the few minutes of the movie, but because it's a short, I was left with questions...
What the heck do you do when you have the devil living in your barn? You call in a few favors from your local senator; you get the SWAT team, a handful of Navy SEALS and maybe even a few cops to chase him out! You don't take no mess from the devil, right? Well, I can say Watch Over Us was built on a pact made with the devil, and as with all his nefarious dealings, the movie lost.
*Short Movie Review
When a movie is 8-minutes long, there are high expectations. The opening scene has a man, Paul Sloan, dressed in a slick suit, with a revolver in his hands. He's shooting up what looks to be a brothel. The tightness of the hallway he travels, then the sudden appearance of a naked woman ["Y" stitch from shoulder to shoulder to the crotch area, whispering an unintelligible stream of words to him] tells you things are going to go very smoothly. It's freaking creepy-good
I have read several of Nicholas Sansbury Smith's books, and can happily say I've not been disappointed with any of them. His stories carry a futuristic horror that draws you from the very first page, until the end. How he comes up with these amazing tales, I do not know, but I can tell you this: I didn't think these books were going to be anywhere near as good as they turned out to be!
Filled with various short stories that take place during the Christmas season, The Horros of Christmas, by Michael Whitehouse is sure to entertain those of weak constitutions.
First off, I downloaded this free ebook because I wanted a few Christmas, by the fire tales. I love a good scare like the next horror fanatic, but this book offered none of the scare, but a little spookiness. The one I enjoyed most was The Advent Calendar. It was the story of a boy haunted by his town's holiday nightmare. Each Christmas Eve, a child disappeared from their bed. Never to been seen, for a time... One child, who loves advent calendars gets a peep into the horror of what takes place before someone goes missing.
First, I think the book shouldn't have used horrors, because they weren't really horrific. They were like watching episodes of Tales from the Darkside, from back in the 80's. Granted, that show probably scared the goodness outta many folks, it wasn't for me. Pure Entertainment. I've yet to find a real horror Christmas book. One day, maybe...
If you like mild scariness, this is your book. It's free on Amazon- go get it while I check on my next read!📚
