Finally got around to seeing The Strangers: Prey at Night this past Thursday.  And honestly, I'm surprised by how much I liked it.  The tone takes an almost complete 180 from the first movie -- and really, that's what it needed to do.

The first movie, in my opinion, is a classic in its own right.  Though it wasn't the first home invasion horror movie, it probably did the theme best.  It was an extremely slow-burning movie until the last ten minutes.  Then shit really started going down.

And the new movie gets right to it.  The movie opens with the strangers arriving at an elderly couple's mobile home in the middle of the night.  The scene is very non-violent but it does a great job at establishing the tone and feel for the rest of the movie.

We're later introduced to our main characters: a mom and dad and their two teenage kids.  The family is making a quick overnight stop at the mobile home park before taking the daughter to a boarding school.  We also find out t…

Fright-Rags releases THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT tees!

My love for Fright-Rags continues to grow.  They've just released a sweet set of The Strangers: Prey at Night merchandise.  You can cop yours here.
My The Strangers: Prey at Night hits theaters today, and Fright-Rags celebrates the long-awaited sequel with merchandise featuring the film's mysterious killers. Dollface, Pin-Up Girl, and the Man in the Mask are depicted on three shirt designs, crew socks, and a set of three enamel pins.

Help me reach 1,000 YouTube subscribers!

Okay, I'm on my knees.  I need to reach 1,000 channel subscribers on YouTube to keep my videos monetized.  As of right now, I have 705.  So I need 295 more.  Even if you hate my channel and never watch my vlogs, please consider subscribing anyway because deep down, you love me, you really, really love me.

Maybe you don't love me.  That's fine.  Just help a brother out.  I will returns subs if that helps.

For the record, I don't disagree with YouTube's new monetization policies.  I think it'll actually help them moving forward.  But it's hurting me in the present.

Also, and let this be on the record, too...I don't make a lot of money on YouTube.  A couple bucks a month, tops.  Honest.  But that extremely small amount helps with keeping my domain name(s) and helps with running MorbidMuch, Sequel Buzz, Scream-Thrillogy and Haunted House Indy.

Okay, I'm done with my plea.  Thanks for reading!

CRY_WOLF's sweet cell phones!

It's no secret that I love the 2005 meta-slasher flick Cry_Wolf.  I also won't deny the fact that I was very envious of the cell phones that the characters in the film had.  They all had some pretty badass Nokias.  In what was essentially the last year or so before smartphones became a thing (pre-iPhone to you youngsters), Nokia had a line of "smart" phones that are still pretty sweet, even by today's standards.

Let's get started...I'll just run through the movie and highlight every Nokia I come across, "smart" or not.

1. Nokia 3510/3510i (the killer's phone)
Very early on in the film, the beginning, actually, we see the killer pull out their phone and call the victim (Becky) in a successful attempt to locate them.  It' very briefly seen, but the killer is using either a 3510 or a 3510i.  From what I can tell, the two phones have practically identical designs.  But I'm sort of leaning towards a 3510 being used in the film (the light …

MM Updates: Riverdale Season 2, 7th Heaven & Xmas

Riverdale's second season!The first season was pretty cool, but this second season...whoa! A serial killer known as The Black Hood is stalking the sinners of Riverdale.And yes, it's awesome (and has many callbacks to the Zodiac and Texarkana moonlight murders).7th HeavenBeen binge-watching the classic series on Amazon Prime and fell in love with it all over again.Laugh all you want, but I love 7H -- would love a revival series (eventually).ChristmasGot through my first real Christmas without my mother.  All is good.  My boys had a good one! So that's about it -- that's what I've been up to.  That, and there are two "top secret" writing projects I'm currently working on.  Writer's block is a bitch, though.
