31 Days of Horror 2016: American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare “Chapter Six”


On the last episode of American Horror Story Shelby, Matt, Lee and Flora just barely escaped their Roanoke Nightmare, but the show ain’t over until the fat lady sings… or so we’re told. This week’s episode features Cheyenne Jackson as a producer with plans for a sequel. Will he get more than he expected on film? The camera never stops rolling. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: Cooties (2014)


Everyone who knows me knows that I live and breathe the shuffling dead. I don’t know why I love zombies so much except that I truly believe this is where all of civilization is heading and, I’m hoping that the honey bees will be the next supreme species to take over the world because we suck at the job. As a zombie connoisseur I’ve seen almost every zombie movie ever made, but I’ve never seen the apocalypse caused by fast food. Did the horror comedy Cooties meet my expectations? Grab a chicken nugget and follow me. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare “Chapter Five”


On the last episode of American Horror Story Shelby and Matt were able to save Flora while Cricket was being disemboweled by the Butcher. While I’m enjoying the documentary style of storytelling for this season, a lot of my friends do not. Maybe tonight’s episode will change their minds. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: Ken Russell’s “The Devils”


There were two disturbing films that I saw in the early 1970s. Both films were about demons. Both films scared the stuffing out of me. The Exorcist and The Devils were both controversial for their time because of the subject matter. Even though I have not watched either film since, the torture scenes from The Devils are forever seared into my mind. But as blasphemous as that film was back in the day, there were lessons to be learned. I will share them with you… if you you’re not afraid… Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare: “Chapter Four”


A lot has happened on “American Horror Story” while I was away on vacation, but we did get to learn who The Butcher is and why Priscilla is hiding little Flora, thanks to a strange psychic called Cricket. Shelby not only thinks Lee is responsible for Mason’s death, but that Matt was unfaithful. Tonight we learn the connection the Motts have with Roanoke. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: The Fear the Walking Dead Season Two Finale


I missed the last few episodes of Fear the Walking Dead because I was on vacation. It was my first time out of the country and I spent my time enjoying a leisurely tour of Rome and Tuscany. But, although I was enjoying the sights, wine and food, my imagination was still on full throttle as I wondered how my friends back at the hotel and La Colonia were surviving the apocalypse. Join me as I give my intake on why I think Fear the Walking Dead is just as pertinent as its big brother, The Walking Dead. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: What We Do in the Shadows


I love horror, but my favorite character has always been the vampire. Those little blood suckers have gone through a wide range of metamorphosis starting with the first time I set eyes on them, which was at the tender age of seven. I am a child of the creature double feature generation and the movies offered a wide variety of horror every Saturday afternoon. I was a loyal fan to the undead ever since I watched Bela Lugosi play Dracula in a movie theatre with my mom and siblings while on vacation in Atlantic City.


My love of bloodsuckers continued up with a major crush on Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard on the HBO series) a character from the Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire Series called True Blood. I even have vampires as some of the main characters in my Roof Oasis Series. I thought I had seen all there was to see about vampires, but I was wrong. I had yet to watch vampires star on a reality show. What We Do In The Shadows is definitely different, but did I like the film? Sharpen those fangs for my review. Read the rest of this entry

My Roanoke Nightmare “Chapter One” comes to American Horror Story


American Horror Story is back and we are promised new scares. We loyally traveled down the dark corridors of the last five seasons beginning with: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, and finally, Hotel. But, until tonight, the theme for season six was kept more secret than Trump’s tax returns and medical records. Tonight showrunner Ryan Murphy finally revealed the season six theme with a vengeance.
