Horror and Technology

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 27, 2022

It occurred to me that back when cell phones grew into common usage I wondered how horror fiction would deal with ...

Tension and Release and appreciation for Watcher

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 29, 2022


Watcher (2022) is a fairly unknown new movie, I think, and I recommend it. Simple, well-made, and scary.



Might as well get an early start on the October celebration, here - the fall is my favorite season, for so many reasons, including the time to celebrate our love for the scary ...

Last week i talked about characters who are motivated by money. Here are some more thoughts on money and some of the different ways it's handled in ...

Scientific Magic

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, March 20, 2022



I talked last Sunday about science engaging with the supernatural in fiction and the worldbuilding stuff that can be generated from that. In this article I’m going to talk about the opposite end of that spectrum. The supernatural engaging with science. This is where I bring up Alchemy. Now ...
