I saw Ghost Stories. I found some of the stories spooky, even though they don’t seem to come to anything. Toward the end of the movie, things get really weird, and I wondered what was going on. I don’t want to ruin the movie by giving away the ending, so my lips are sealed.
The movie reminds me of those old Amicus horror anthologies like Torture Garden and Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, both directed by Freddie Francis. I really enjoy these two Amicus movies, and there are several more British movies in this format that I like. They ought to make more anthology movies like this. How about some more Hollywood movies like Dan Curtis’s Trilogy of Terror with that Zuni fetish doll that menaces Karen Black? That thing really gave me the creeps when I was growing up.
Bryan Cassiday’s new collection of horror stories Unhinged: Tales of Madness and Horror is now available in paperback on Amazon.
Unhinged consists of ten stories that plumb the subterranean depths of the human mind to uncover the horrors that lie within. These stories plunge you into a world of murder, mayhem, and psychosis where anything goes and your worst nightmare could be lurking around the next corner in the guise of something as innocuous looking as a ventriloquist’s dummy, where even an insane asylum offers no refuge.
Bryan Cassiday has a collection of his new horror stories being published in March. The stories revolve around an insane asylum and the murderers and madmen who populate it, as well as the doctors who treat them.
