I'm not going to lie to you, HORROR HIGH--also billed as TWISTED BRAIN--is a pretty terrible film, applying the Jekyll and Hyde concept to a bullied high school nerd out for revenge. It features amateur actors, murky cinematography, and clunky directing on a roughly $70,000 budget. But it also has a certain charm as a micro-budget, drive-in shocker, and I'm pretty sure it was an inspiration to STUDENT BODIES. And maybe SCREAM. And if you have Amazon Prime, you can watch it for free.

I remember catching this one on TV in my youth. Maybe on Commander USA's Groovie Movies. I don't remember much about except for the paper-cutter scene. That stayed with me.

I know for certain I'm going to see this in the theater. What I don't know is whether I should start regretting that decision now or wait a little.
Back in November, we reported that Ridley Scott would not be directing Blade Runner 2, due to scheduling conflicts between it and Prometheus 2. In that same article, we also reported that Harrison Ford was probably going to appear in the movie, and a few weeks later, Ford declared that the Blade Run

I wish Ridley Scott would direct this instead of PROMETHEUS 2. Also, I honestly don't know what the point of a sequel to BLADE RUNNER would be. It was a pretty self-contained story. What's next? A new group of replicants revolts?

My first post about contemporary women writers of horror and psychological suspense is dedicated to the extraordinary Megan Abbott. Abbott caught my attention with her fifth novel, The End of Everything. Written in Bradbury-esque lyrical prose, it tells a devastating story of broken trust and adolescent longing without sentimentality or cloying nostalgia. Her follow-up, Dare Me, explored a cultish dedication of a group of cheerleaders for their coach and the lengths teen girls go for acceptance. Her most recent novel, The Fever, examines similar themes, connecting them to contemporary fears and myths about the environment and modern medical practices. Abbott is also a tremendous short form writer; her novelette "My Heart Is Either Broken" in the Dangerous Women anthology was one of the most powerful stories I read last year. If you're not reading Megan Abbott, you're doing yourself a disservice

I very much enjoyed Kate Bernheimer's anthologies of original fiction. My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me was a Shirley Jackson Award finalist, after all, and xo Orpheus: Fifty New Myths had an equally great line up of writers. I think I might dig this non-fiction anthology she did back in 1998, too. It features essays by Joyce Carol Oates, Midori Snyder, Ursula K. LeGuin, Julia Alvarex, bell hooks, and many more.

More than a little bit brilliant, and certainly funnier than the original Cathy ever was.
 
Cathy CK: Cathy comics replaced with Louis C.K. quotes

LOL!
  Things that totally make sense: The Cathy comic strip meets Louis C.K. quotes. Both single? Check. Both struggling over the “four basic guilt groups” of life—food, love, family and work? Check, check, check and check. I don’t know how long the Cathy CK Tumblr will remain up. These amusing mash-ups always seem to be met with some controversy i.e. This Charming Charlie where the Peanuts gang dialog is replaced with Morrissey song lyrics (Univer...

Captain Kirk might have gotten the alien babes, but it was Spock who was the star of 'Trek.'

Still not as creepy as Travolta touching Idina Menzel's face.
 
LOS ANGELES—Perched forlornly in the rafters above the merriment of the 87th Annual Academy Awards, the Dolby Theatre Hunchback stared down in longing at the beautiful guests sitting in the hall below, sources confirmed Sunday.

A TV show featuring Campbell as Ash has been greenlit, so we'll see what happens.
