TheStrain_102_1280x720_306162243771

Holy freaking parasites! The season premiere of “The Strain” introduced us to something quite large and most wicked. Will Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his partner, Dr. Nora  Martinez locate the source of the fast moving contagion that killed most of the passengers of Flight 753? Will more people die before they do? What about the four survivors held in quarantine, what will we learn from them? And…why are the dead not staying dead? Only one man who knows, but he’s in jail. Someone is visiting Setrakian at jail? Shall we eavesdrop and find out who? Read the rest of this entry

The Strain S01 E01: Night Zero

the-strain-logo1

Air travel is the fastest route from point A to point B, which is on the plus side, but the negative side has passengers contending with rising costs, security checks, frequent flight cancellations and uncomfortable seats. As bad as that sounds, the poor passengers on Flight 753 unfortunately received more than their complimentary bag of peanuts. The jet has landed and the fright is just about to begin… please remain seated until we arrive at the gate for the first episode of “The Strain.” Read the rest of this entry

Steampunk Granny’s Preview of The Strain

John-Hurt-The-Strain

I did a book review on Guillermo del Toro’s vampire trilogy a little over a year ago for Biff Bam Pop!. The review was on all three books: The Strain, The Fall and The Night Eternal. I love horror and I love stories about vampires, even the ones that sparkle, but after reading the first two chapters of The Strain, I had a very hard time falling asleep. It was freaking scary. That’s saying a lot considering that I’m a professional ghost hunter and I don’t shock easily. Will the television series live up to the books? Find out after the jump.

Penny Dreadful S01 E08: Grand Guignol

 

Episode 108

We wait my little pennies, but…for what? Is it a closure to what has happened in episode 7? “Penny Dreadful” will lower its curtain on season one, and all we can do is hope for some resolution to Miss Ives’s torment. Vanessa is a free spirit trapped in an age where men control. What does Sir Malcolm expect from Vanessa? What does Dorian? How do we fight a monster, when it can hide within us? We will walk down a darker corridor tonight, my little pennies. Hold tight to my hand even though it’s as cold as ice. Read the rest of this entry

Oh, The Horror To Be Outcast #1 On The Wednesday Run

We love our horror, here at Biff Bam Pop!

I know for a fact that there are those of us here (writers and readers) who will check out every. single. horror. related film that gets released in theatres or on Blu-Ray. Yes, even the really cheesy ones. There are those of us here who regularly write (and publish!) horror-centric stories of short and long fiction. And there are those of us here who alter their social plans based on certain Sunday night undead TV viewing. Yes. The Walking Dead. The comic book-turned-television phenomenon.

That series’ creator, Robert Kirkman, returns to the comic book horror genre once again with the brand new series, Outcast.

And all of you lovers of horror can find out about it right after this jump!

Penny Dreadful S01 E07: Possession

 

PD7

Gather around me my little pennies for we are dealing with a dark subject tonight. In last week’s episode of “Penny Dreadful,” we were finally given a chance to watch Dorian and Miss Ives get it on. Oh my manners! But, their plunge into passion had a few repercussions. Dorian, a man of many appetites and secrets, foolishly assumed he was bedding only Miss Ives. Foolish boy! Miss Ives carries her own dark secret and it waited patiently for her to drop her guard. Will her friends save her from her captor? Watch quietly from the corner of the room, and whatever you do, don’t draw attention to yourself. Read the rest of this entry

Penny Dreadful S01 E06: What Death Can Join Together

365e1d57942b483ec87aeff02df8adc0

In the last episode of “Penny Dreadful” we learned through Vanessa’s letters to Mina of the events that took place before Mina’s disappearance. Our trip through the hedge maze to witness Miss Vanessa’s possession by an evil entity, or was it only a mind plagued with guilt, was rather unnerving. Luckily for us, Vanessa seems to be in control for the moment. Our weekly visit to London’s past has led us down many corridors and to many a famous character, but in his search for Mina what hell will Sir Malcolm drag us, screaming? Walk quietly on those loose cobblestones and light your candle for our journey begins. Read the rest of this entry
