Demon SeedHAPPY HORROR THRILLER BIRTHDAYS TO -
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Writer Dean Koontz (Movies: DEMON SEED, WATCHERS, PHANTOMS, INTENSITY, TICKTOCK, THE FACE, VELOCITY, THE TAKING, ODD THOMAS, and way more in books) is 74 years old.
Think of those super cheapo, direct to video Albert Pyun SciFi Horror Thrillers of the 1980s & 1990s. Now think of the Nazi officer that appeared in so many of them. You're likely remembering today's birthday boy,
Actor Norbert Weisser (THE DEADLY TRIANGLE, John Carpenter's THE THING, ANDROID, RADIOACTIVE DREAMS, CITY LIMITS, FROM HOLLYWOOD TO DEADWOOD, THE SECRET OF THE ICE CAVE, MIDNIGHT CABARET, CAPTAIN AMERICA [1990], THE ROCKETEER, DECEIT [1992], ARCADE [1993], HEATSEEKER, NEMESIS 3, ADRENALIN: FEAR THE RUSH, OMEGA DOOM, NEMESIS 4, BLAST, SORCERERS [1998], TICKER, THE LEARNING CURVE, INFECTION [2005], COOL AIR, GEMINI DIVISION [TV], ANGELS & DEMONS, BEING KILLED, ABELAR: TALES OF AN ANCIENT EMPIRE, WOLFENSTEIN: THE NEW ORDER [VG], WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS) is 74.

KICKIN' IT KICKSTARTER
The Project

The Bone Herder

The Bone Herder is an Afropunk/Afrofuturistic fantasy horror comic that puts black characters at the center of the story. Often people of color are left out of fantasy worlds or forced into stereotypical roles. I'm not alone in my desire to see settings that extend beyond the familiarity of typical western stories. This project originated from Gail Simone's Comic School, which gave me the confidence to go forward with my idea.

QUICK BITES
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Earth May Be Stuck In A J.C. Loop
As it seems nothing happens anymore unless it somehow, in some way, references the work of John Carpenter.

We've seen this happen so many times before. As New York City, under the high mortality rate of COVID-19, approaches ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, or our current C-19 "Damn it! Wear the Mask" to John Carpenter's "Damn it! Wear the Sunglasses", as we saw in THEY LIVE, as well as more subtle references we've seen echo through our recent past.

And I'm not just talking about...

*Watch CLOVERFIELD first, then ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK.
Cloverfield Escape From New York

Now with the recent passing of composer Ennio Morricone, John Carpenter's THE THING returns to the news spotlight as it seems to do, Every Single Week of Every Single Year!

From Entertainment Weekly,

The Thing director John Carpenter remembers the 'inestimable genius' of Ennio Morricone
By Clark Collis
The late Ennio Morricone is best known for scoring Sergio Leone's Westerns and, later, for his work on such prestigious dramatic ventures as The Mission, The Untouchables, and Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. But the composer, who died Monday at the age of 92, also worked on the movie which many regard as the greatest horror film of all time: director John Carpenter's 1982 alien invasion chiller The Thing.
