Creepy Fun: The Haunting of Bly Manor

The Haunting of Bly Manor hit Netflix on October 9th, and, as you can guess, people are watching and whispering and posting with vague words and emotional phrases. As soon as I saw the trailer, I couldn't wait. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tykS7QfTWMQ And now, it's here! I've watched the first five episodes, and I like it! Creepy. Mysterious. Atmospheric. And the stories are unfolding at just the right pace. As I watched the first episode, I immediately connected this to the recent movie The Turning, which showed in theaters at the beginn[...]

The Santa Clarita Diet

What did we ever do without Netflix? Seriously? Once upon a time, we had to wait an entire week in order to watch the next episode in our favorite show. Now, we can binge watch umpteen seasons of shows like Friends in a matter of a month! But then what do you do when you finish watching all of these old favorites? You find something new. And it doesn't have to be a popular show, either. There are so many choices to be had. To make things even more exciting and diverse...Netflix has created its own shows!!! One such show is The Santa Clarita Diet. It was reco[...]


The Stranger Things Soundtrack is Out! Get it now!

It’s no secret that I love Stranger Things. In fact, I’m so bold as to say that I think it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in my life. Yep. Seriously.   One of the things I love most about this show is the thing that my writing partner Brian LeTendre and I talk about a lot…music.

You know, the legendary director and composer behind some of the best horror soundtracks ever? (My favorite is the synth driven Halloween, Hallow[...]


Like the STRANGER THINGS Score? Check Out S U R V I V E

Like everyone else on the planet who is remotely interested in horror, I recently devoured the eight episode masterpiece that was Stranger Things. As someone who grew up in the '80s, this series has earned a very special place in my heart. And I could write for days about the loving homages to King, Carpenter, Koontz, Barker and many other horror masters that the Duffer Brothers wove into the show. But that's not what I'm here to write about today. See, there are few things that I love even more than horror, but one of them is music. There are places where my lov[...]
