There were no more words. What more could be said? Pa’haana tied on his boots, pulled on a vest. The rest of his clothing he bound up in a large bundle, including his winter furs. He took his flint knife in its sheath, his shield fashioned of woven sticks and covered with the skin of… Continue reading THE PATH Part 16
It was a foregone conclusion that if the latest installment in the SCREAM franchise proved successful, both in creative terms and, more importantly, in terms of box office revenue, we’d be getting a sequel. As SCREAM 2022 (which is really SCREAM 5, as every fan who can count knows) delivered in both respects, yes, we… Continue reading SCREAM Returns Next Spring!
There weren’t a lot of people at the matinee showing of X I attended this past weekend, unfortunately, as the movie deserves to score big box office. And of the few there were, none of them, excepting me and my date, stuck around once the credits started rolling. Too bad for them, as they missed… Continue reading A Prequel to X Already in the Can
There’s a phobia for everything. I knew there was a name for the fear of old people, too, so I googled it. Yep. It’s gerontophobia. Not to be confused with gerascophobia, which is the fear of growing older (and don’t we all have a little touch of that one?), gerontophobia is the literal fear or… Continue reading X and the Fear of Growing Old
The great American Slasher movie is alive and well! Ti West’s X is a true delight, earthy, sexy, bloody, uber-violent, and smart. This one stands on the shoulders of giants, yes, but it also has legs to stand on its own. The homages are subtle, more stylish than direct, and used to flavor a unique… Continue reading Movie Review: X
Not many people proved capable of picking up on the subtext of this movie when it first came out. The outlandishness of the premise tends to overshadow the potency of its social commentary. The entire narrative is a metaphor for the struggles of the proletariat, the working poor in opposition to the wealthy; it is… Continue reading Revisiting the “Classics”: MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
At last, as the horizon grew bright before the coming of Wakanti, Pa’haana rolled from beneath his blankets. He started the morning’s fire out in front of the lodge—no reason to awaken his Aunt this early—then went down to the stream at the south end of the village to gather the day’s water. There he… Continue reading THE PATH Part 15
Over at our sister site WEREWOLVES.Com I was kvetching this week about the prohibitive costs of shipping-and-handling for those adorable little Tubbz character-based rubber ducks from Numskull Designs. The ducks themselves aren’t too pricey, but damn, you gotta cut off a couple of fingers to get them shipped to the good ol’ US of A… Continue reading Rubber Chucky, You’re the One
It’s a good news/bad news type situation, I suppose. While I’m glad that we’re going to be getting a new film in the ALIEN franchise, I will continue to beat the drum for the (admittedly small) percentage of the population who don’t have the option of livestreaming. It sucks to live behind the times, in… Continue reading A New ALIEN Movie. Dumped into the Livestreaming Pit.
“Why does it kill more than it can eat?” Pa’haana said to himself. “Maker-of-Ghosts kills for the pleasure of killing,” a voice behind him answered. Pa’haana did not turn to look. He did not have to. “And where have you been, brave W’tah?” Pa’haana said. “Cowering in your lodge until you were certain the beast… Continue reading THE PATH Part 14
