2.) “BISCUIT: A LOVE STORY” By Grivante
3.) “THE CARE & FEEDING OF YOUR PERSONAL DEMON” By Maxine Kollar

Stronger Than Hate by Robert Essig

Francine watches, and she listens to them from below. TRAPPED. She is hurt, and imprisoned at the bottom of a sinkhole that opened up in her precious garden while they torment her.

Familiar faces look down upon her—the worst students she ever had the displeasure of teaching before she retired from the local high school. They snicker as money changes hands. They spit on her. Throw things at her.

And there’s no way in hell they’re going to get help.

But someone else knows about Francine’s predicament. Her neighbor Greg, another former student. The one whose peers called him Lazy Eye. The one who always looked to be accepted even at the expense of Francine’s safety. Does he have it in his heart to do the right thing, to come to his senses and call the police?

At the mercy of deviants, Francine Mosely must harness her inner strength to survive their torments, but how much can she take? Through guidance from the memory of her late husband she banishes herself from what is happening, retreating to her most precious memories, but what happens when the horrors around her infiltrate her mind? How much can she take before breaking down? Is Francine Mosely STRONGER THAN HATE?

Angel on my right shoulder… “Ahh, revenge, but at what cost?” Devil on my left shoulder leans over and whispers in my ear… “Forty bucks, and ¼ bag of weed. Me… “I’M THINKING!”

SG in STRONGER THAN HATE, by Robert Essig

It’s been a while since I’ve read human depravity at this level!
The story worked – the bully and the bullied, the mentality that allowed this to go on for so long, the drugs, (it had to have the drugs), and how so many kept a secret – it’s all there, working together, and believable. Till the very ending bit
and that’s the reason I only gave 4 stars instead of 5. Because of ‘The Dark Ones‘.

WARNING

*Not really – but possible spoilers ahead*
It’s only my personal opinion, others may completely disagree. ‘The Dark Ones’ took the story somewhere that I didn’t think was needed. As a coping mechanism – yes. But, the bit at the end was something I think the story could have done without.

How to connect with the author: Find him on his blog Robert Essig’s Confusions, Delusions, and Formidable Impressions, Facebook, follow @Robert_Essig on Twitter, Amazon, and Goodreads.

Want to watch a horror movie with me?

I just heard about a indie horror movie – THE ISOLATION HORRORS, on the Everything Horror podcast. Here’s the IMDb and Official Teaser Trailer –

What it’s about-

After finding a bloody face mask in the street during an epidemic outbreak, a concerned neighbour calls his home-isolating friends to check on them. Meanwhile the friends are experiencing their own horrors in their homes during lockdown.

“THE ISOLATION HORRORS” is a short film anthology intended for online release, created by London-based filmmakers during home-isolation.

The five short films are made under the rules:

  • Shoot in your place of isolation;
  • Shoot on your phone;
  • Make horror films.

The five filmmakers came up with their own concepts, goals, style and expression under these rules creating five very different horror short films, using few resources and limited technical gear available, inspired by the lockdown, and strung together by producer Nicolai Kornum.

So, like I said… want to watch a horror movie with me? Sorry we can’t NETFLIX & CHILL, but we can YOUTUBE AND BLOG! (I wish I would have set up the chat here, it would have been like the good ol’ days back at Zombie Fiend!)

I’m going to wait a little bit, then watch it here. Want to join me? It’s only about 25 minutes long, and looks pretty cool. We can text in the comments maybe? Idk how it will work out, but if you’d like to stare at a screen at the same time as me – meet me back here at say… 5:00ish (in about an hour and a half ). We might not even be able to communicate, but we’ll never know if we don’t try sometime! If I don’t see you then, then I’ll see you later. Until then, stay safe, and stay scary – not scared!

Peace, Love & Necrophilia 💋

Fresh Blood on #BleedingMemes!

Has it been a minute since you’ve checked the gallery? Swing by and see what you’ve missed. Today’s additions include a psycho quote from Bret Easton Ellis, (American Psycho that is!), and some sharp words provided by Shaun Hupp.

The Maniacs With Knives post led me to obsess over Rayne Havok even more, (if you’re wondering…check out the review, haha!!) But – I’m dying on this new background I’m working on for Boy’s Will Be Boys. I’m trying to be TOO clever, I think. We’ll see. BOLO for new Ed Lee, and Wrath James White #BleedingMemes, posting soon!

Well, like most things in life, tonight’s discussion can be summed up in the words of Bukowski…

Keep checking back even during the remodeling, just wear your mask to avoid the dust and debris 😉 Until next time…

Peace, Love & Necrophilia 💋

Most Interesting Horror Movies Based On Books With Terrifying Basements #Horror #GuestBlog #GuestPost #Movies #Books — Reads & Reels

First of all, I’m a sucker for horror infographics – it’s an obsession that I can’t explain. I think the marketing behind this ‘scary basement’ post & ‘graphic is BRILLIANT! Lastly, basements scare the shit out of me. Always have. Well, since I picked up my mom’s copy of The Amityville Horror I suppose. The worst basements have those see through / grab your ankle through stairways!

Horror movies often draw their inspiration from books. It takes a lot of talent to make a book truly terrifying; without jumpscares and music scores to offer cheap thrills, books have to do a lot of work to horrify an audience. When a book horrifies, it’s much more likely for that book to end up with a movie deal. Out of this list of terrifying horror movies with scary basements, consider these, which were all based on books.

[Mental Health Awareness] – Trigger Warnings: Good for Readers AND Authors — Dead Head Reviews

I wasn’t always a big fan of ‘The Trigger Warning’, but you just may see The Bloody Book Blogger site rockin’ this ribbon one day! Check out this great post by Elle Turpitt from Dead Head Reviews –

By Elle Turpitt “But I write horror. Horror doesn’t need trigger warnings! Why should I-” I’ve seen this argument. I’ve seen people try to justify not using trigger warnings by using the whole genre as a shield. Here’s the truth: not all horror is the same. Not all horror is created equally. Just like in […]
