Here I am at the World Horror Convention in Portland in May 2014. I’m holding up the frightening official souvenir book from the convention.
I will be at the World Horror Con in Portland, Oregon, from May 8–11, 2014. I’ll be signing books on May 9. I hope to see you there.
Helix is a lively horror series on the SyFy channel with some good thrills on Friday nights, so far anyway. People trapped in the frozen wastelands with a virus that turns them into flesh eaters has to be good. I recommend this horror show. The premise alone is creepy.
Of the movies I saw this year I pick the following as the best horror flicks of the year (but not necessarily in this order) . . . and the winners are: World War Z, Mama, The Conjuring, and Last Days on Mars. If your favorite isn’t on this list, I probably either didn’t see it or forgot it came out during 2013.
World War Z has great beginning scenes as the city erupts into panicking, rioting citizens during the initial assaults of the zombies. These opening scenes of horror-stricken mobs reminded me of Spielberg’s version of H. G. Welles’s War of the Worlds.
Mama is creepy with the title character skulking around in the background of the house, walking around on the ceiling, etc., as she haunts the tenants and kills numerous guests she doesn’t like.
The Conjuring isn’t as good as its precursor, but it’s still scary. For sure, I don’t ever want to go down alone into a basement again.
Probably nobody ever saw Last Days on Mars, which isn’t surprising. It didn’t show in many theaters because it was a low-budget indie and as a result got limited distribution. It has a good script with claustrophobic moments on a space station on Mars as bacteria attacks the crew.
