Episode 68: Genital Fondling Subplot

This week the crew watched “Temple”, a movie that about an awkward trip to potentially haunted religious sites in Japan as the unenviable third wheel. Thankfully, the pain is soothed by “May”, the story of an outcast young woman, her doll and her various (bizarre) attempts to connect with those around her while Rigby tells us all about the anime “B The Beginning”. 131 more words

OFF SEASON by Jack Ketchum

Before his death earlier this year, I had not read anything by Dallas Mayr, better known by the pseudonym Jack Ketchum. This was foolish. Ketchum (1946-2018) was a highly respected name in horror, described by Stephen King as “the scariest guy in America” and the winner of four Bram Stoker Awards and the World Horror Convention Grand Master Award. 1,198 more words

Film Review: 'Blood Money'

Stumbling upon $8 million dollars in stolen currency on a wilderness trip doesn’t turn out so well for three young friends — surprise! — in “Blood Money.” It’s not particularly plausible placing bratty 20-year-olds in classic noirish circumstances of greed and betrayal, with John Cusack more weird than menacing as the criminal they’ve unwittingly tangled with. 636 more words
