Beware the Inanis

The vampire or upir is one of the most feared throughout history. However, there is one among them that is exceptionally odious. This demon is spawned from the most tragic of circumstances. It is called the Inanis, a latin word for empty. They are called this because their appetite cannot be satiated, nor their thirst…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 12: Chris Margetis of The Manson Bros Midnight Zombie Massacre

Do you like wrestling? I sure as hell do. However, there is one thing I love just as much, horror movies. So when I tell you this is the perfect love-child of the two, believe me. This movie is fuckin' hilarious! The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre is over-the-top (pun intended) and insanely entertaining. I…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 11, The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre

Mike Carey is a badass! Don't believe me? Listen to the story. The guy is one of the most kind people you'll ever meet. Ignore his Steiner Brothers build and get to know the person. We're all gentle giants at the end of the day, except for Batman. Stay away from him. Mike is a…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 10, Candyman (2021) Review

My expectations were low going to the theater. I thought to myself, even if this is trash, we still have the original. Candyman is a contrived mess of a movie that did too much in too little time. The story was all over the place and relied heavily on social justice themes. It was a…

The Walking Dead S10E22

The council reneged on their promise to Negan. He escaped prison/came back, saved Judith in a snow storm, and infiltrated The Whisperers to kill Alpha. So they repay him with exile to some ole dusty ass shack. At this point, if he snaps out, it's going to be hard to have sympathy for the survivors.…

The Walking Dead S10E21

I don't know what the hell was going on in "Diverged." It is the most lacking in narrative. There's some weird energy between Carol and Daryl. Their relationship is weird as hell. Clearly people are still upset with Carol and the choices she made for the greater good. Even Jerry tried to be passive aggressive…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 06: Werewolves Within (2021) Review

There's been a debate for hundreds of years about which is better. Werewolves or Vampires? Well I'm here to put all that to rest and declare that werewolves are more awesome! Period. So when I saw the trailer for Werewolves Within, I was sold. Two of my favorite genres, horror and comedy, working together to…

Fear Street: Part 3 – 1666 (2021) Review

We've arrived at the conclusion of the Fear Street trilogy on Netflix. I have to say I'm a little disappointed with the conclusion. Fear Street Part 3 is composed of two different stories, as if the director forgot about Part One. Deena reunited the dismembered hand with its body, and was sent into a trance.…

Fear Street: Part 2 – 1978 (2021) Review

These FEAR Street movies keep getting better. Comparing the first one, FEAR Street: Part One - 1994, I think 1978 is the superior film. When it comes to originality, there's much to be desired. It clearly paid homage to the Friday the 13th franchise. However, there's enough character development and subplots that prevent it from…

The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020) Review

I am a stan for werewolf movies. There's something I find fascinating about the deadly creatures. In The Wolf of Snow Hollow, a town is terrorized by a series of brutal murders every full moon. Officer Marshall (Jim Cummings) is charged with finding the culprit while battling with his belief in the supernatural. It's a…
