The Horror of Netflix

     Despite their new interface on the PlayStation network, Netflix has been lacking in good horror as of late. So imagine my surprise when the wife and I give a B movie a shot, and end up giving it five stars.


     A movie about the Dyatlov Pass incident back in 1959, this film takes a new spin on the various theories and turns them on their head, forcing the viewer to keep guessing until the very end, when you realize a shocking aspect about the movie that leaves you wondering where M. Night hid himself in the credits.
     Give it a try this Christmas Eve, you just might enjoy it!

Real World Horror: House-for-sale!

    This is something that I would love to move into, but my wife would veto that in a heartbeat. While she is a fan of horror, as well as a skeptic, she is also one not to tempt fate. When she showed me this, I of course laughed and said we should get it.
     She wasn't as amused as I was apparently, as she just gave me a long. hard look.
     Oh well, a man can dream...

Breeding Water, Part One

The crisp air of the high Colorado Mountains was dry and smooth, the sky a marvelous shade of midnight blue with a few errant strands of white, wispy clouds dotting it here and there. A lone figure, a young man barely out of his teens, sat atop a grassy hill with a loosely rolled cigarette hanging from his lips, gazing skyward at nothing in particular as he took in long, slow drags of smoke, before billowing it out through his crooked nose. With messy black hair pulled into a loose ponytail and a lean frame, he was hardly what one would call a lady killer.
