It may not look like it, but yes it’s horror related. It’s a panel from a short story I’m working on, a horror/western. So, y’know, trust me.

New episode of Gutter Trash will be available tomorrow sometime.

Tried to watch Beyond Re-Animator, but a) it sucked, and b) the disc was cracked. Netflix!!!

Dr. Hill


Dr. Carl Hill’s bat-winged head, from Bride of Re-Animator.

Creature from the Black Lagoon


The Creature from the Black Lagoon is a movie I’ve never seen, but I’ve always dug the look of the creature. Especially when Art Adams draws him. I love Art Adams.

A lot.

Come Get Some


Ash is the only icon of horror who isn’t a villain or monster. He’s just an average joe. With a chainsaw hand. That’s why everyone loves him. Me included. Evil Dead II is in my Top 5 of all-time favorite movies ever. EVER. Not just horror movies. ALL movies. The Dark Knight can still go suck a nut.

I’m an inch away from getting Dish Network. Still undecided.

Quickie horror movie reviews of recent Netflix’d fare:

May. Excellent film, truly disturbing in it’s main character’s akwardness. Long before the eventual bloodbath, you wince, gag and bite your nails at just how timid and backward the character of May is. It’s almost heartbreaking. This may have become a new favorite.

Bride of Re-Animator. Sequel to the original classic. Just gruesome, goofy fun. Jeffrey Combs is great as usual as the progressively crazier Dr. Herbert West, who begins some more outlandish experiments with his re-agent.

The Woods. An effectively creepy tale about young girls at an all-girls school in 1965. There’s some stuff about witches and haunted woods and whatnot, but it barely matters. The acting is good, the mood and tension are good, and it’s mostly about the characters. Plus Bruce Campbell is in it for about 10 minutes. 5 of which, he actually has lines.

Ravenous. Holy crap how did I miss this one for so long? I can see why it bombed so terribly when it came out. It’s not exactly a horror film, but it’s also not exactly any other kind of film, which means people stayed away in droves. It’s got Guy Pearce, Robert Carlisle, Jeffery Jones, David Arquette and Jeremy Davies, and it’s about cannibals in the old west, circa 1850. It takes the cannibalism part of the story of the Donner Party and runs away with it in crazy (and occassionally hilarious) directions. And of course, the acting is great all around.



This started out as a werewolf, but looks more like a rat, so that’s what it is. A were-rat.

Chicago plans not going as smoothly as possible. Pissed off.

A stretch…


Kinda pushin’ it with this one. He COULD be scary. He just isn’t.

Gotta do some catch-up drawing tonight. Thank god I finally have money so I can eat dinner on my own.

I’ve got something to say…

You should retire today
You’re a joke and ruining a legacy,
and it’s gone to your head.

Too much horror business
At this late in life
That’s when you should have stopped
And you don’t go to the bathroom on stage

and on and on.

Give it up for Jerry Atric and the All-Star American Punk Cover Band!

Frankenstein’s Monster


Frankenstein’s Monster was always one of my favorite classic creatures. I don’t know why, exactly, but it always appealed to me. I read the novel when I was in 3rd Grade. I was obsessed. I’ll probably come back around to him before the month is up.

Recording Gutter Trash tonight. Having dinner with my folks. Again. Sucks being broke.



Not much to say. Tired. Hungry. Much like angry mummy.

Scary Monsters



Nothing’s quite as frightening, however, as watching my drunk 47 year old, married brother try to pick up an 18 year old waitress at a sports bar. It was a special day.

Back to Lego Batman with me… er… I mean, reading a book.
