31 Days of Horror 2015: Fear The Walking Dead S01 E06: The Good Man


The walkers, on “Fear the Walking Dead,” can’t and won’t be held at bay for too long. On the last episode, Daniel went to the arena after interrogating one of the soldiers. There is no more denying what motivates the dead: Hunger! Hunger is what feeds the virus that controls them. What motivations will the living need to survive and, when that time comes, who do you pick to survive with you? Read the rest of this entry

31 Days Of Horror: Marie Gilbert On… The Making of Shadows of the Forest


Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.

Did you ever wonder how a film was put together, or how actors prepare for their roles? I need to thank Biff Bam Pop’s fearless leader, Andy Burns, for allowing me to do interviews on independent film directors and artists. It was through the interviews I had done here and here on Christopher Eilenstine, director of The Soulless, that led me to becoming one of the writers for Eilenstine’s new film, Shadows of the Forest. Thank you, Andy. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2015: Sleepy Hollow S03 E01: I Witness


I like watching “Sleepy Hollow” which stars Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, but although the cast was excellent, the writing needed to be vamped up, a lot. Maybe with season three, the creators have finally perfected the formula to make “Sleepy Hollow” kick-ass great. On the season two finale, Abbie did some time travel and Ichabod said a bittersweet goodbye to Katrina. But as we all know, our dynamic duo’s fight against evil is never over.

Twin Peaks S02 E22: Beyond Life and Death


Is time travel possible? In the land of reruns and Netflix, time travel is just a short twenty-five years back to a show that was not only the king of cult shows, but a favorite of my friend, Andy Burns. I had never watched the “Twin Peaks” series created by David Lynch and Mark Frost when it originally aired and, I probably would have gone through life never seeing the show if it weren’t for Andy Burns’ book.

Fear the Walking Dead S01 E05: Cobalt

Soldier on Cobalt

When civilization crumbles around us like day old bread, the military will take every precaution to protect its citizens… even if it means putting a bullet in your head to reach their goal. On the last episode of “Fear the Walking Dead,” people are being torn away from their loved ones. The soldiers have their orders… but will they obey them? Read the rest of this entry

Twin Peaks S02 E21: Miss Twin Peaks


People are dropping like chess pieces. Is this really a good time to have a beauty pageant? On the last episode of “Twin Peaks,” Windom figured out that the cave drawings were a map. Windom now knows the location of the Black Lodge, but he needs an outfit for the Miss Twin Peaks Pageant. What will his disguise be this time? Read the rest of this entry

Fear the Walking Dead S01 E04: Not Fade Away


On the last episode of “Fear the Walking Dead,” Travis finally made his way back to Maddy. The neighborhood is getting dangerous and the cavalry has just arrived, but the walkers might be the least of their problems. Read the rest of this entry

Saturday At The Movies: Grandma


This was a week of movies with the grandkids and me. With two of my grandsons, I went to see M. Night Shyamalan’s awesome film, The Visit, which I posted about here. Last night I went to see Grandma with my adult granddaughter; two different genres, both about grandparents. Was Grandma as good as The Visit? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Twin Peaks S02 E20: The Path to the Black Lodge


On the last episode of “Twin Peaks,” Love was in the air for both Cooper and Gordon, Donna suspects her mother of cavorting with Ben and, Windom has left a nasty clue. Will the clues from Owl Cave and Windom’s connection to Project Blue Book lead us to the Black Lodge? Read the rest of this entry

Gilbert Reviews M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit


I have nine grandchildren that for the most part have accepted the fact that I’m not your average granny, but I still surprise and shock them. My nineteen year old grandson, Josh, is still wrapping his mind around the fact that there are sexual scenes in my books. This weekend, my daughter’s family and I headed over to the movie complex to watch the much awaited M. Night Shyamalan’s newest film, The Visit. Was the film scary? Read the rest of this entry
