Party on the Riverwalk Part One

The sharp taps of her steel-toed boots echoed through the alleyway as she wove through the veritable maze set between the abandoned buildings. Breathing out a sigh of relief, Jennifer smiled at the sight of her warm breath in the frigid air before her. Slipping a hand into her coat, her fingers numb from the frost of the frigid evening, she errantly tugged on the necklace she’d been gifted by the strange man she’d encountered a few days earlier.

Post Mortem: Curse of Chucky

The cover of this suspenseful horror tale!
     When I first decided to watch this movie, I had low expectations. After five movies, I'd assumed I'd seen it all when it came to this devilish little doll. From the get go, I see this as a remake.
     I couldn't be more wrong.
     This story actually manages to tie in to the other stories in an extremely smooth fashion. The setting is new, the plot is intriguing and filled with unexpected twists and best of all, Chucky doesn't go to insane lengths to create "new" ways of killing people.
     He sticks to the basics, and in all honesty, that's what this straight to DVD film is, a back to basics for the standard slasher film. True, the slasher is a Voodoo-possessed doll, but most of the memorable slashers have some mystical aspect to them.
     Stick around past the credits, and you get a surprise worth waiting for.
     If you don't want to know more beyond that, don't expand this article.

Coffin Hop 2013

     Coffin Hop is a yearly event where horror bloggers and authors come together to pump out nonstop work for seven days straight, from the 24th until the 31st. I participated last year, and will be participating again this year!
     This will include the release of the "Coffin Hop: Death by Drive-In,"a compilation of tales that are guaranteed to make you look over your shoulder as you read. To make things better, all proceeds from the sale of the book will go to, in an effort to help fund children's literacy drives and campaigns.
