A JOURNAL OF FEAR WEEK 4: IN A GLASS CAGE/ BLOOD ORGY OF THE SHE DEVILS/ BURNT OFFERINGS/ HELLRAISER III/ A LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN

IT JUST WON’T END!!! Welcome to week 4 of A JOURNAL OF FEAR! It has been a long and bumpy ride, and it is almost through. This process is not easy, well the writing aspect isn’t. Watching a movie a day for a month is not impossible, but it ain’t easy either. I have a conference coming up I am presenting at, and it is difficult giving this project the attention I thin it deserves while also preparing for that. Oh, and I guess figuring out how to make money as well. This week was my highest number of disappointing

A JOURNAL OF FEAR WEEK 3: MOTEL HELL/ THE BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW/ CALVAIRE/ CRIMSON PEAK/ A CAT IN THE BRAIN/ DEMON KNIGHT/ BORDELLO OF BLOOD/ NEON MANIACS

Hey y’all, welcome to our THIRD installment of this year’s A JOURNAL OF FEAR! This is, well honestly describing it as late would actually be generous. This week I definitely took some, well lets call them short cuts. Basically, I added Crimson Peak even though that is not the kind of film I normally cover in this column. I saw it though, and I thought I would have something worth sharing about it. Turns out, I didn’t really. So I apologize for not only breaking the format, but then having no positive results from it. Secondly I included films which

A JOURNAL OF FEAR WEEK 2: ALICE, SWEET ALICE/SOCIETY/THE CHURCH/CHERRY FALLS/ZOMBI 2/THE DEADLY SPAWN/DEAD FRIEND

WELCOME TO WEEK TWO! Some quick thoughts before we jump in. I am sorry this is late. The plan into the future is for these to come out immediately at the beginning of the week. However, weekly podcast recording has cut into my watching and writing time, so there is a bit of a delay. This week, I managed to watch a lot of films which were not that scary. Since my schedule is not set in stone, what films do YOU think I should be watching that are really disturbing. Let me know, and I will try and work

A JOURNAL OF FEAR WEEK 1: MADHOUSE, DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING, TWO EVIL EYES, THE LORD OF ILLUSIONS

Greetings my fiendish friends and welcome to the first week of A JOURNAL OF FEAR. This is Year Three of this little project, where I write about an activity I was already doing, that is watching a different horror movie every day in the month of October. For a brief but overly boring introduction you can click here and to read some of past years’ material click here. As usual, I am again running behind (this has been a theme of the project every year) so I thank you again, and always, for your patience. I wanted to start this

A JOURNAL OF FEAR: An Introduction of Sorts

Welcome friends to A JOURNAL OF FEAR, my Halloween marathon column of Horror film thought and reflection. I started this column two years ago over at Cinapse.co for several reasons . The most practical ones were simply a love of Horror films, and a desire to not just watch a Horror movie a day in October, but to write about them as well. If you have listened to the podcast you know that my interest in film does not end with Horror, but it does begin there, and it is in that sense an important part of how I became
