GOOSEBUMPS

Readers Beware, we are back for another scare. After a short break here we are with the next in line for my Goosebumps series. Piano Lessons Can Be Murder was always one of my favorites as my Aunt took piano lessons and I longed to be able to play like the teacher. … More GOOSEBUMPS

GOOSEBUMPS!

This one has really good memories for me but upon reading it again, I have seen the theme done better. It is great for a giggle and it has some moments where you would be scared but it doesn’t hold a candle to some of the other works of Stine’s where fear is front and center. … More GOOSEBUMPS!

Bring Me A Dream

I remember hearing about the Sandman as a child; it wasn’t through the Hans Christian Andersen’s story but through The Chordettes version of Mr. Sandman the song. In fact, in almost every rendition that I have had the pleasure to read or hear since I was introduced to the Sandman, every instance has been innocent, good intent, misunderstood, and complex. … More Bring Me A Dream

Dark The Review

Like a lot of people in recent years, I have been taken in by shows like Stranger Things and most recently The Haunting of Hill House.

Dark is another show along that spectrum that I recently found and watched on Netflix. … More Dark The Review

GOOSEBUMPS!

Who can stay invisible the longest? You see for however long someone is invisible; it takes them that long to come back once the light turned back off. Even worse Max and his friends start to feel off. … More GOOSEBUMPS!

GOOSEBUMPS! Say Cheese And Die! Review by Kendra Hale

This novel is one of my top five books that I adored from the original series. It was also one that I looked forward to as I came back to read these stories as an adult.
One of the main reasons why that is is the belief that cameras have the power to steal away parts of our souls or essences completely enthralls me.

Death Is Only The Beginning, The Mummy Trilogy Review

In 1999 we got a taste of what would happen when a classic horror moved was revamped with heavy elements of nostalgic action/adventure.
I remember the trailers appearing on TV when I was younger and being excited about something that felt entirely like a mix of movies that I knew and loved and a whole new boundary being entered… death is only the beginning, The Mummy Trilogy Review begins! … More Death Is Only The Beginning, The Mummy Trilogy Review

GOOSEBUMPS — Stay Out of the Basement review by Kendra

Dr. Brewer is doing a little plant-testing in his basement. Nothing to worry about. Harmless, really. But Margaret and Casey Brewer are worried about their father. Especially when they…meet…some of the plants he is growing down there.
Then they notice that their father is developing plantlike tendencies. In fact, he is becoming distinctly weedy–and seedy. Is it just part of their father’s “harmless” experiment? Or has the basement turned into another little shop of horrors? … More GOOSEBUMPS — Stay Out of the Basement review by Kendra

Père Lachaise Cemetery – the beat goes on…

When night falls tones of piano and guitar gently meld together and a beautiful chorus of voices come together to sing a melody that would bring even the most cynical of man to tears.

A fog rolls in and among the gravestones there are memories and snippets of time coming forward to say listen. Join… the beat goes on. … More Père Lachaise Cemetery – the beat goes on…



A Midsummer Night’s Scream – Review

When you hear the name R.L. Stine one of the main reactions is instant recognition and of course an association to the man depending on when you joined in on his writing whether you have been there along the way from Welcome to Dead House, or you joined in his teen books with the Fear Street series.
Maybe you even were a late bloomer and didn’t start until he branched into more adult books with his book Red Rain.

For others you may not have heard or read any of his work and honestly this would not be the article for you. 

R.L. Stine like many authors in the 90’s wrote horror in a way that captivated and gave the readers a taste of horror. … More

The Horror Makeup

When you are a special effect makeup artist, you have to develop your skills by practicing on people that are kind enough to accept to be your model… well, sometimes they are chosen by me to volunteer and this is how it goes when you are published in a local newspaper! … More The Horror Makeup

Palette Swap

Time to get setup for work. Get a set of disposable cups, tissues, cotton balls, sponges, and paper towels all in a neat row. Well, to be honest, as neat as it is going to get. Set out the makeup wheels according to which actors come in first. … More Palette Swap
