Carrie and the Horrors of Menstruating While Trans

It was a miniscule observation that launched the story that would become a horror staple. It’s about as simple as a backstory could be.  Stephen King got the idea for his first published novel after seeing a pad/tampon dispenser in a high school girl’s bathroom during his time working as a janitor. This rectangular tinContinue reading “Carrie and the Horrors of Menstruating While Trans”

12 Movies For The Next Ice Nine Kills Album

Metalcore superstars Ice Nine Kills really kicked in the theatrics with the release of their 2015 album Every Trick In The Book, where each song was based on a classic novel (and given that their name comes from a Kurt Vonnegut reference it’s very fitting). A few of the songs on the album were basedContinue reading “12 Movies For The Next Ice Nine Kills Album”

Pet Sematary- Ashes To Ashes, Denial To Acceptance

So There was never going to be a “good” time to write this. I kept meaning to at least get a draft going then things kept happening.

REVIEW: Werewolves Within- Cue Savage Garden!

A Dimension of Sight, Sound, Mind, and Gender and Sexual Identity: LGBTQ+ Stories Inside The Twilight Zone

I’ll admit I was tardy to The Twilight Zone party but losing my job due to the pandemic led to it becoming one of my most-watched shows during the shutdown. I believe it’s still streaming as I’m typing this but I ended up buying the complete original series on DVD so I’d have it forContinue reading “A Dimension of Sight, Sound, Mind, and Gender and Sexual Identity: LGBTQ+ Stories Inside The Twilight Zone”

A Year With Monsters, Blogs, and Lockdowns

I’ll have to start this with a bit of a prologue.  I used to work at a movie theater. Specifically, I was a keyholder on the housekeeping crew- that was the better way of saying I was janitor.  There were days when I truly did despise my job. It was thankless and began before dawn,Continue reading “A Year With Monsters, Blogs, and Lockdowns”
