Hey, thanks for the heads up, Andy. You canít go wrong with, Westlake. The David Handler and Charles Williams books are enticing as well. Wow, just read that Westlake passed away in 2008. I remember him dying, but it sure doesn't seem that long ago. That old adage of time seeming to speed up as you age has never felt more real.

That's a great collection. And quite a steal at $1.99. Power's doesn't write much short fiction, but when he does, it's superb.

Count me in as a big fan!  My son and I watch this one often.

I'll probably get flamed to hell and back for this, but I greatly prefer the remake of Matheson's story to the Shatner version.  Lithgow's performance blew me away, and I think the gremlin-on-the-wing in TZ:TM is one of the coolest, creepiest monsters from the 80s.  Very underrated.


I like both versions of Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, but I have to give the nod to the Shatner version. It's probably because it was one of my favorite TZ reruns back when I was a kid. I mean it was Captain Kirk loosing his shit on a plane!
That kind of thing imprints itself on a young mind.

We don't have cable, but I'm interested in seeing the show when it comes to DVD or Netflix Streaming. I'm a big Martin Freeman fan, so I'm hopping it's good.

Here is an early review of COLD IN JULY, the movie adaptation of Mr. Lansdale's great novel:



Sounds good. I just wish the reviewer had gotten Joe's name right. "Londsdale"? Jeez, dude--if you didn't catch it in the credits, look it up on IMDB.

Yeah, that's pretty inexcusable these days. What with so many internet sources available at your fingertips to get the correct spelling of the name. Just plain lazy writing.

LOVE the show, but facing a dilemma...

I'm all caught up on the show and should be able to watch Season 4's premiere tonight, but I'm currently halfway through the second book and I'm worried it'll just confuse me lol. Reading a book with 1000 characters and watching a show with those same 1000 characters, each plot at different points, each point slightly different between the written/visual form...

Does that make sense? I basically don't want to watch this premiere and then go back to book 2 and get the two stories tangled up in my head. ("Wait...did Sansa do that already? Or did I watch that, and it just hasn't happened yet in the book? But then why did Joffrey say that to her already? Has that scene happened yet?", etc etc.)

I started reading the books last summer after season 3 ended, and I might just catch up on all the books before I resume the tv show itself...

In can be tricky keeping the show and the books straight some times. I believe I had read the first three books before the first season started, and finished the last two that are out before season three started. They are some of the best books I've ever read, and I'll be re-reading them once a actual publishing date is released for Winds Of Winter. How are you enjoying the books so far?

Andy, that's awesome. I was beginning to think I was the lone GOT watcher at the Horror Drive-In. We're pretty stoked for it. I guess they are having a recap/intro to season 4 before the actual premiere. So, we're going to give that a look as well.

Thanks, Nanci, and everyone else.

It's been a pretty horrible weekend. I fell off the wagon on Thursday night, and started drinking. Stupid, but I felt like I was going to explode. I'm going to wind down tonight with the few beers I have left, and get sober again.

I had been doing so well, too.

I've had a lot of regrets, guilt, and even repressed anger. If I had one wish in life it would be that things were different when I was growing up. All I have to work with is the present and the future. I think I need to call and make an appointment with my therapist tomorrow.

God, we never really completely get over the demons of our past, do we?

Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

I think that making an appointment with your therapist is a good idea, Mark. Maybe that will help you cope somewhat.

And yeah, our past is never truly past.


13  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Game of Thrones Season 4 begins tonight! on: April 06, 2014, 11:07:34 AM

So, is anyone else here excited about the Season 4 premiere of Game Of Thrones tonight?

We donít have cable ourselves, but we have some friends who also love the series, and are kind enough to let us come over and watch it at their house. In fact, Itís become a bit of a tradition. Out of the four of us watching, my wife is the only one who hasnít read the books. So, we all have to do our best not to let slip any spoilers. And of course the books are better, but the show is itself a wonderful mutant hybrid of the original, and Iím enjoying it on itís own merits.


14  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: My Mother Died on: April 03, 2014, 11:23:54 PM

I'm really sorry for your loss, Mark. You're in my thoughts.

Happy April Fools!
