Prepping for Fear the Walking Dead


Someone up in heaven loves me. They know I’m all about zombies, ghosts, and aliens, but mostly zombies. I’ve been writing the weekly recaps of “The Walking Dead” for Biff Bam Pop! for three seasons.

Did the finale meet my expectations? Follow me, my little pennies, to Madame Kali’s castle to find out. Read the rest of this entry

Saturday At The Movies: Jaws


As the American Fourth of July holiday figures solidly into its plot, what better time to talk about the first of the big movie blockbusters – Jaws – than on Independence Day?

On last week’s episode of “Penny Dreadful,” we had a betrayal, a love fest, and a death. Blame it on the Voodoo, if you want, but Madame Kali is only guilty of the death.

Daniel Reed talks to Berkshire County director Audrey Cummings

Horror films are just as unpredictable to create as they are to watch. Audrey Cummings, director of Berkshire County, knows this. In her latest work and first feature-length picture, she presents all the ingredients necessary to the babysitter in peril story.
