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…

Interview with Author Baylea Hart

Interview with Author Baylea Hart

*How long have you been writing for?* I’ve been writing since I was about seven years old. I remember being given an old computer with a word processor that I would spend hours typing on in my bedroom. Around that time I also created a little book, made with paper I stapled together, that I put on my classroom bookshelf. It was about a man who killed children on their birthdays, creatively titled The Birthday Man. I coloured it in…

The No Sleep Podcast…. https://www.thenosleeppodcast.com/   You know when you hear a tale that haunts you, sends literal shivers down your spine and causes a sleepless night…?

The Woman On the Yellow Bicycle by Augie Peterson

The Woman On the Yellow Bicycle by Augie Peterson

With reluctance, I walked into the stuffy classroom. Hugging my arms close to my chest, I watched my feet walk across the tile floor. A dark haired woman stopped me before I could make my way to the seat I had eyed at the back of the classroom. She smiled, then rested her hands on my shoulders as the last few students hurried into the classroom. “Good morning class” the teacher spoke, massaging my shoulders. “This is Sandy, it’s her…

Interview with author Augie Peterson

*How long have you been writing for?* I typically say I started when I was 10, but in reality, I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I wrote two books when I was younger, one about the secret life of a pet dog and another about a family of talking jaguars. I also wrote poetry when I was younger and filled about three notebooks with half- written stories because I hated to end them *How many rejections…

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- 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…

Castlevania: TV Review

Castlevania: TV Review

If you’re on this site, you loved monsters as a kid. Probably even had a “Monster In My Pocket” or two. And during those days, you probably held that familiar Nintendo controller in your hand and threw down on some Zelda, Mario, or Metroid. But, as a monster lover, you inevitably found yourself playing one of the earliest horror games the NES had to offer. But no, that’s not the game I was talking about. Released by Konami back in…

Papercuts: The Eyrie

Papercuts: The Eyrie

Papercuts: The Eyrie By Ryan “HB” Mount   The Eyrie is an independent horror comic from creator/writer Thom Burgess and art by Barney Bodoano.  The tale is one of a troubled photographer, enters into a creepy British town and creepiness ensues. The overall story telling was well done and while not on a level of modern Scott Snyder horror tale like Severed, but compared to current horror anthology comics, it stands up and is on par.  Most of the heavy…
