damehelsing at 12:00AM, April 11, 2021



See what I did there? It’s an image of a Beholder… which normally has one giant eye right in the center of their face/body and the article is titled HORROR (the Beholder is scary looking) is in the EYE of the BEHOLDER? Yeah? No? Ok…

Unlikely Mentors

Banes at 12:00AM, March 25, 2021


the cruel tutor himself, Pai Mei

One of my favorite character types is the gruff/grizzled old mentor. Tough as nails, mean or cranky on the outside but with great knowledge or support to offer when you know them, or when they know - and trust - you.

Gimme Strength

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 19, 2020



Plenty has been said about giving characters flaws - we've talked about it around the site, on the Quackcast and out loud, to ourselves, on the bus and in the park.

Anemoia describes the feeling of missing a time never experienced personally. Movies know how to inspire this feeling whenever a particular orchestra song from the previous century is played during a period piece of a Miami nightclub from the 1950s or whenever synthesizer pop and electric guitar solos transports people ...

Horror - Immersion and the Slow Burn

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 15, 2020



I just started the Netflix series called “The Hanting of Bly Manor”.
