A crap load of reviews

I’ve read some stuff and watched some stuff and have a few reviews first off is a good book

  • Speak With the Dead– This is a pretty good book by Konstantinos.  If your interested in EVP’s and different ways of talking to the dead then pick this up, it tells you how to use methods from voice recorders and static to more mystical ways such as  scrying.

The next two are movie reviews, both form the last years Horrorfest and they both suck.

  • Crazy Eights– This movie started out with so much potential.  It starts out with six friends who have just attended a buddy’s funeral.  Their buddy had uncovered some rather disturbing secrets about their past.  They soon find out that as children they were all held captive and experiment upon(that’s on the back of the box so it’s not really a spoiler).  The problem is the back-story is not fleshed out enough you never really get the whole picture about what happened to them.  If they would have made this movie 30 minuets longer and told us some stuff it would have been great.
  • Mulberry Street- On the back of the box it says it’s a zombie movie… it’s not (spoiler)… people are bitten by a plague of  rats and start turning into rat-people.  The main character having no weapons as he tries to find his daughter among the rat-people infested New York uses his golden glove fist to take down rat-people with just one punch.  The best part of the movie is when this bar owner starts taking out the evil rat-people with only a frying pan.  Don’t even waste your time.

There’s one more movie, a good one

  • The Mist–  I loved Stephen King’s original story and really like this one, it expands greatly on the original idea.  The acting is good (sadly no King cameo just a store called King’s Pharmacy) written and directed well, it continues to build at a good pace and never gets boring.  The effects for the most part are very well done, there are some tentacles at the beginning that look a little off but other then that good SFX.  I will say that the ending may make it or break it for you (I had no problem with it).
