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

Secondly I included films which

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
