Movie Review: Jack Hill’s Spider Baby (1967)

I haven’t watched a whole lot of black and white films, probably because growing up, I wouldn’t give them the time of day. Now that I’m a bit older, and I’ve had the benefit of having dated a cinephile, I am finally delving into the world of true classic movies, ones that, …

Book Review: The Nightly Disease by Max Booth III

  I really don’t know how I feel about Max Booth III’s The Nightly Disease. Published initially as a serial in DarkFuse’s magazine, The Nightly Disease follows a hotel night auditor’s descent into madness as everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. In a series of darkly comedic and horrific events, the …

Book Review: Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia

It’s not very often that I add a title to my list of favorite books, and I’ve never felt the burning desire to create a shelf for my favorite reads on Goodreads – that is, until this moment. After finishing up with Mindy Mejia’s Everything You Want Me to Be, I …

Book Review: The Many by Nathan Field

Book Review: Covenant by Allan Leverone

Earlier today, I finished up Covenant by Allan Leverone. I was disappointed, to say the least. The synopsis of the story is interesting enough: fairly young married couple move to small town and buy a house with a history. That history is dark and twisted, centering upon a previous owner that moonlighted …

Book Review: Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Several years ago, I had the pleasure (I think?) of watching the American remake of the film, Let the Right One In, which was titled Let Me In. I don’t remember any of it -only that I had found it interesting at the time. Undoubtedly, it had something to do with the …

Book Review: Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King (Bill Hodges Trilogy, #1)

After spending several months on the hold list through my local library’s OverDrive, my chance with Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes finally came up. With papers and a new job taking up much of my time, I almost didn’t get to finish it before my checkout ended. Because I was running out …
