R.I.P. George A. Romero

I am kind of late on this because I rarely see any news, but just saw George Romero passed away. I grew up on horror films. Day of the Dead was actually my first zombie movie I had ever seen, and I was way too young to even be watching it. Finally, I saw Night of the Living Dead and then Dawn of the Dead. Land of the Dead was the only one I got to actually see in a movie theater, and I loved it! I used to have the awesomest Night of the Living Dead shirt that I would wear all the time. I think it’s time to order another one!

“They’re coming to get you, Barbra.” That iconic line from Mr. George A. Romero himself is one that will never leave my brain.

Review: Independence Denied

Title: Independence Denied

Author: Calvin Demmer

Date of Publication: July 1st, 2017

35570280

Goodreads Summary:

With Independence Day near, Brad Marshall is expecting another routine day at his job as a research assistant. Then he sees a peculiar creature on one of the screens at work. While the rest of the world focuses on a sudden rash of devastating natural disasters, Brad is transfixed by the image he’s seen. He refuses to give up until he knows what it is. The answer he finds, however, will change the world forever.

My Review:

This is the third short story I have read from Demmer, and I have loved each one. They are fun and just what I need in between reading longer novels. This is one that puts a whole new spin on celebrating Independence Day.

There was some awesome creepiness to the story, and I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. The character, Brad, felt real again even though it was a short story. I don’t want to give too much away, but again the ending was just awesome!!

Review: Unidentified Fatherly Object

Title: Unidentified Fatherly Object

Author: Calvin Demmer

Date of Publication: June 15th, 2017

35449036

Goodreads Summary:

Fred Garcia decides Father’s Day is the perfect time to find out what happened to his father. As he prepares to search the old, abandoned military base where his father used to work, he hopes for clues as to what might have occurred. Lights at the base, however, indicate that it’s not as inactive as suggested. Fred discovers the truth. Unfortunately, the truth is a dark and dangerous operation that cannot be unseen or escaped.

Review:

So, since this is a short story I don’t want to give too much away, but this one was really awesome. Even though this was a short story, I still connected with Fred and wanted to embark on his journey of figuring out what the heck happened to his father.

What Fred discovers is a dark and unimaginable find. The writing was good and sucked me in from the get go, and I didn’t release it until that last word. The ending was excellent! This is a great science fiction/horror read for anyone that wants something different!

Review: Deadman’s Tome: Monsters Exist

35298232

Goodreads Summary:

From the time we are young, we fear the monster under the bed or in the closet, making it impossible to sleep without a nightlight. Then, we hear stories of Bigfoot, and maybe even the Mothman around campfires. When we are adults, we wonder if there might actually be supernatural creatures lurking in the shadows. Are these tall tales and urban legends only metaphors for what horrific things humanity is capable of—or do monsters exist?

Go to some terrifying places with this cast of authors. You will be dragged into mystifying realities where demonic fairies hide, where devil monkeys lure carnival-goers to their demise, where Goatmen seek to destroy their prey, and where the goddess of death puts out a hit on victims of her choice. These shocking tales will have you biting your nails and locating that childhood nightlight. Because, in the end, we all know monsters do exist.

My Review:

Did somebody say monsters? MONSTERS! So, I was pretty ecstatic to read this book because A. I love monsters and B. I haven’t read a book of short horror type stories since well… since back in elementary school with Scary Stories, More Scary Stories etc. So, an adult type of book filled with short monster stories sounded awesome! And it was!

As with any short stories book filled with stories by different authors, some stood out more than others, but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole ride. I really loved Braun’s Legend Trippers and Demmer’s Never Sleep Again. I have always had a weird thing when I was younger of wondering about monster’s under the bed!

I loved the creep factor and wondering what was going to unravel in each of the stories. What I feel like needs to happen is we need a more up to date movie filled with short horror segment intertwined into a full length movie like some of the films from the 80’s like Tales From the Darkside the movie, Twilight Zone the movie, Cat’s Eye, Creepshow, Trick ‘r Treat (Okay maybe that one isn’t 80’s but it was good!). Somebody make this happen with some of the stories from this book!
