Book Review: The Night Girl by Amy Cross

Amy Cross’ The Night Girl,follows Juliet in her pre-college blues as she reluctantly takes a job at the Crestview retirement home. Instinctually bored, Juliet seeks out the nooks and crannies of the rundown facility and finds someone that has been waiting for her for quite sometime.

After a few treacherous graveyard shifts, Juliet realizes that regardless of what Jennifer is, she has several skills that are very handy for Juliet.

Stage Fright (2014) (REVIEW)

The slasher sub genre is one that will just not seem to die. It’s not surprising however, since the slasher could be argued to be the foundation to modern horror. “Halloween”, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “Peeping Tom”, “Psycho”, and “Black Christmas” to name a few of the beginning cuts. The genre has evolved and changed over the years, but just like the killers that lead the films, the genre keeps picking itself up. Series have had to be rebooted and remade to stay modern. Even the “Scream” franchise was created to save the genre from an early grave.

Static (REVIEW)

As sub genres reach the end of their ropes and the tropes become tired, new films have two choices to make to be successful. One, they can approach the concept with an indulgent tone and create an over the top massacre of the senses. Two, acknowledge the audiences exhaustion with the tropes and create a meta commentary concept. Last years “Evil Dead” remake opted for the first choice by making a balls out gore fest that gave a loving nudge to the cabin in the woods sub genre from where it was conceived.

Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: WILLIAM FRIEDKIN

One of the true but unspoken shames of the horror convention industry is that, if you make one horror film that is moderately well known, you will be able to live off that moderate level of fame for the rest of your life, signing autographs and paying the bills when you’re unable to continue a career or move into a more populous genre of film. William Friedkin may be one of the only film directors who made one of the most iconic horror films in American history, and has never in his career settled back on that comfort.
