Brinkworth’s Basement – The Taking of Deborah Logan review

Brinkworth’s Basement – The Taking of Deborah Logan review

The Taking Of Deborah Logan ( 2014 – Shudder US) A ‘Found Footage’ film that feels different. It’s being filmed for a PHD thesis on Alzheimer’s and the effects on the primary caregiver. The subjects are a mother and daughter. First things first, the acting is well above most found footage, with the mother being the standout performer. It starts off just kinda sad, but then shit starts to get EFFED. Some definite freaky shit going on here. Of course…

Strangers: Prey at Night Review

Strangers: Prey at Night Review

(Caution: Minor spoilers ahead.)   I have not seen The Strangers. I went into this “sequel” with no prior knowledge of the first film and I think Strangers: Prey at Night stands well on its own. You don’t need to see the first one to follow it. From what I’ve read they aren’t really related. So, it’s not a sequel in the sense that it’s a continuation of a story, but it does share the same villains. Those villains though……

THE LOG HOUSE (Guest Review)

THE LOG HOUSE (Guest Review)

“I know that they are strong and fast. They don’t feel fear, don’t even know what it means. You can’t ward them off with charms and urban legends. They can climb and run and they never tire. Only the light can distract them, and once that has gone, you have nothing. They will see you, and once they have, they will never stop until they have you. If they knew we were here, we’d already be dead.” -Penny, protagonist of…

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins Condemned is a first person survival horror game released in 2005 by Monolith Productions. I have been excited to play this game ever since I found out Monolith was the developers: they have a pretty good track record with horror games, having developed the F.E.A.R. series as well as the criminally underrated 2.5D FPS BLOOD. Needless to say I was wielding a hefty bar of expectations going into this. You play a member of the FBI’s Serial…

The Consuming Shadow- Minimalism Maximized by B.B. Blazkowicz

The Consuming Shadow is a 2D rogue-like survival horror game by Yahtzee Crowshaw. In it you play as a character known only as “The Scholar” who is tasked with stopping an invading “Lovecraftian” god by discovering and completing a banishment ritual at Stonehenge. Game-play is split between plotting courses across an overland map of England in your car and exploring various “Dungeons”. I chose the title “Minimalism Maximized” because the game executes a dizzying level of subtly and complexity using…

My interview with The Alexandria Archives

My interview with The Alexandria Archives

What are the 3 best things about working on The Alexandria Archives? 1. We all three work jobs that can be pretty stressful and not exactly what you’d call creatively stimulating. The podcast gives us a chance to exercise our creative roots. 2. We have an excuse to regularly collaborate with each other. 3. We get to be a part of the podcasting community, which is one of the most gracious and friendly groups imaginable. Seriously, everyone has been so great!…
