It's been a while but maybe yer ol' pal the Horror Guy can finally get back on a regular writing schedule. Been a lot going on lately in the fun world of all things horror, so let's filter thru the pieces....
...I finally finished reading Stephen King's fantastic Dark Tower series. I saw the ending coming about one page before I got to it. A lot of folks were apparently disappointed in how the whole thing wrapped up, but it made sense to me. I don't know if it was the *best* ending, but it made sense.
...I was intrigued enough by the recent reveal that newbie horror novelist Joe Hill is actually one of Stephen King's kids, that I picked up a copy of his debut novel, Heart-Shaped Box, and am completely enthralled. Word has it that Warner Bros. has already picked up the feature film rights. Full review to come after I actually finish it up.
...finally got around to watching Pan's Labyrinth; what a beautifully terrifying, phantasmagorical fairy-tale of a flick that turned out to be! Hands-down, this one has the creepiest monster this fan has seen since having my young mind assaulted by visions of C.H.U.D.
...as fate would have it, Rob Zombie's re-imagining of the original Halloween is slated to hit theaters August 31st, the same day that Cridafer and I leave for a two week vacation, starting in Amsterdam and ending up in Paris. Anyone know of any good theaters in Amsterdam that I could catch this one at?
...check out the trailer for Fido; this is another one that the Horror Guy is really looking forward to.
