I finally got around to watching The Midnight Meat Train (2008) for the first time. Something dawned on me all the while; the entire movie is strikingly Lovecraftian.
Now granted, I read the Books of Blood collection of stories that this one comes from but it wasn’t until today that I realized how much Lovecraft inspired it.
Anybody else think that? Got any more Lovecraftian movies for me?

A question about Alien
So I was watching Alien all the way through with no distractions for the first time a little while ago, (Ironically just before H. R. Giger’s death) when something occurred to me.
Got a job at the local movie theater so now I’ll be able to see horror movies for free, and before the normal people get to see them.
Which means I can finally turn out reviews faster if needed by my followers. Just ask and I can give an opinion so you don’t have to waste money on a dumb movie.
Also, I’m sorry for the big hiatus. I’ve had a lot of medical problems compiled with my last year in high school, but I’ll try to be on here more especially because I’m on summer break.
So I’m watching House of 1000 Corpses when I get to the seen where one of the girls is calling up her dad near the beginning of the film. I notice this, and I’m like: “What do?”
Did you guys notice this? It says something about their dog Ling-Ling getting it’s head cut off. I wonder who did that….
Insidious 2 Review
Woke up feeling like poo, so I took off today. Gave me some extra time to go see the premiere of Insidious 2.
In all honesty I thought it was going to be a flying poo fest. I was prove dead wrong. It was not at all any less of a treat than the original. Albeit a little more cheesy than the original, still damn good.
I recommend the movie to anyone who loves a little cheese with their ghost story. The plots blend seamlessly. The set is amazing. (I loved it anyway)
Go see it. Just do it. You’ll laugh, I know the elderly couple in the row in front of me did.
Oh, wow. New follower after that book review. Welcome!
If any of you guys want anything reviewed or my opinion, etc. on anything just shoot me a message.
I’d be so happy to hear from any of you at all. (Ha, ha!)
Lords of Salem Book Review
So I finally got around to reading the Lords of Salem book by Rob Zombie and B.K. Evenson. I am actually thoroughly impressed with it, more so than the movie. There’s just a whole lot more to the book that the movie didn’t even begin to cover.
I won’t get into it too much here because of spoilers, but I’ll continue below the break.
((Ever read Carmilla? There aren't very many movie adaptions, the most recent had to have been done in 1999 and most of the adaptations are loosely based on the story. Skip the Vampires vs. Zombies one though.))
No, I haven’t. I’ve been meaning to read it though. I’m reading a slew of books right now, but as soon as I get a free spot in my brain to keep another plot line running I will.
Watching The Collection. Mass murdering fun right from the get go.
As you all know I love the Moth Diaries movie, but I gotta tell you all: I love the book to death.
There is so much more to the book that the movie just gleamed over. It’s so rich. You can feel everything the author is feeling. You can just feel the atmosphere.
It’s not your typical vampire story. It’s just so good. I love a well written vampire tale.
GO READ IT NOW!
This one time I had a dream strait outta Lovecraft's Herbert West Reanimator. In it the African dude that got reanimated was with Herbert chased after me because they saw me while digging up another fresh body. I ran as fast as I could but then I fell in a freshly dug grave for a funeral scheduled the next day. Needless to say my ass was grass.
Wow, haha! That’s a new one.
I always have dreams of being chased by a creature. It’s always the same creature too. It’s a big shadow with horns, teeth, and claws to boot. It ends up feasting on my flesh before morning.
I want to know, followers, have you ever been chased in a nightmare? If so, what did it look like, and did it ever catch you?
