Anyway, I've got a little collection of stray contemplations to share.
*First off, I want to direct your attention to DR. TERROR'S BLOG OF HORRORS, who is currently celebrating another madcap week of Italian horror. It is a seriously unmatched conglomeration of awe-inspiring posts and articles completely focused on (wait for it.....) Italian horror. There is so much goodness at this site this week (well, all of the time, really...but especially right now) that you simply must take the time to check it out.
HERE to find out. I do believe my other contribution will post tomorrow, so be sure to check it out too.
Your host, Jimmy Terror, works like a fiend to make this week the rousing success it most certainly is, so throw him a bone - and a few comments! He has a great line-up of some of the best horror scribes among us and some giveaways to boot. So GO THERE NOW!
*True Blood. SEASON 7. Yes!
Seriously though, isn't Pam the best? She steals the show every damn time she's on the screen.
I am very nervous about the next few upcoming episodes though. It's said that a MAJOR character dies this season, and I'm on the edge of my couch with worry hoping to hell it's not going to be Eric or Pam.
Unfortunately, this past week's episode put the two of them in a very precarious situation at the end. They are stuck in a brightly lit room, both armed with stakes and expected to fight to the (true) death.
Will it be one of them? Gah! I hope not!
But in lieu of lambasting and persecuting this female any more than she already has been, I want you to instead click HERE. BJ Colangelo of the stellar horror blog DAY OF THE WOMAN has written a list of horror journalists that deserve your attention more than someone whose career has just dissolved yet still seems to be getting an inappropriate amount of regard. The horror community is on fire with all the particulars of the "crime" but I just really don't want to dwell. I want to move on, and you should too. Hence, BJ's article. Do check it out, and take in the array of writers that she highlights who are doing fine work to keep horror alive, and doing so with original ideas, hard work, and passion for the genre.
(On a personal note, I'd like to say thanks to BJ for including the likes of this humble writer with such an outstanding group of women.)
*Paranormal Activity 5 may be delayed and not released this Halloween!
Care factor: ZERO.
On that note, if anyone has a staggeringly great concept be sure to let us know. And by that I mean, if there is anything you'd like us to possibly pursue, drop us a comment or an email. We're always looking to freshen things up and try new ideas.
*That's all for now. Just wanted to air some thoughts and let you know what's going on in the House of Fear.
