Horror Director: William Brent Bell

Upon occasion I see a horror movie that gives me hope. The hope is that there are developing horror movie directors to keep the genre alive.

Let's talk today about "The Boy" and why the director gives me hope.

Creepy Cemetery Statues

Cemeteries are the most beautiful and peaceful parks and memorials.  A walk among the rows of headstones under the shady trees brings a sense of quiet and introspection. Sometimes, however, cemetery art takes on a sinister tone as weather and aging can make even the happiest sculpture twisted and creepy. Other art, designed to take on gothic and anguished proportions, becomes something quite frightening. Let's look at what can happen to the art when placed in a peaceful cemetery.

Blog Entry Saturday: Kolchak Versus Charlie's Angels

I grew up with two very divergent influences: "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and "Charlie's Angels." Both exhibited intelligence, diligence, and bravery, but one was a bit bumbling and a loner, the other was a neat sexy glamour team. And somehow, forever, I've been embracing both.

Can Bigfoot Read Minds?

I was introduced to a research group based on my focus on language/communication and psychic pathways. That's how I started studying the Tall Ones and then quickly went into more arenas like guidelines for habituation and interaction and eventually the search for their ancestors/lineage (Link to those findings). 

As I had some time to focus on any signs of psychic skills, I have some input to share here today -

A Taste of Autumn in Summer

August is kind of like the February of wintertime. In winter, we are fed up with the cold, the snow, and the colorless surroundings that were once charming at Christmastime. Here we are in the latter half of summertime, pining away for chilly nights, cooler and shorter days. Let's dive into a taste of autumn and how to transition so we can savor the best season of all!

The Domes: Creepy Abandoned Buildings

Local legends are always fun. This one is very scary.

In Casa Grande (just northwest of I-10 meeting I-8, south on Thornton Rd which is a washboard dirt road) there's a place called "The Domes." This conglomeration of weird-shaped buildings was originally built as a semiconductor factory that never opened. What is left is a bunch of very long and Kiva-shaped buildings that are open to the elements. And to transients. 

*Warning: One of the buildings has collapsed. Due to liability and being privately owned, take pictures from afar.
