Movies And An Update

Wow! It has been a good while since I wrote anything. I'm sorry. I went through a period of very dark depression. It was worse than anything you could read about by your favorite horror author. The first medication the doctors put me on was a big mistake because it just knocked me out. I slept for almost two days on it. We had to let it get out of my system and start a second medication. This one seems to be doing the trick but it's taken my body about a month and a half to adjust to it. Now it's time to get back to work here.

I have four books lined up and ready to go:
  • Jason Brannon's The Cage is the first one to be read. I have a signed copy of it to giveaway as well.
  • Bitternest by Alan Draven. I've tried to avoid any promotional info on this one so that I can go into the unknown and truly be surprised.
  • Blaze: A Novel by Richard Bachman. I'm trying to understand why SK went with the Bachman name on this one.
  • The Good Guy by Dean Koontz. The plot description on the dust jacket sold me.
If you have a Wal-Mart nearby head to the DVD section and look for the collections. There is a two disc DVD collection for sale with both Identity and Secret Window for sale. At $9 and some change it is too good a deal to pass up.

Secret Window is a great adaptation of the Stephen King story Secret Window, Secret Garden staring Johnny Depp. An author going through a divorce finds himself accused of plagiarism by a stranger. It doesn't take long for things to start going wrong for our hero.

Identity is simply a great film. Ten strangers find themselves stuck together in a hotel one night during a horrendous storm. The roads are washing out and the phone lines are going down. One by one somebody begins to murder them.

If you haven't seen either movie yet then you now know all you need to know to enjoy them. These are two great movies and finding them packaged together was a sweet deal.
