Read Don't Melt Your Brain

Here's the second edition of films and books that are probably better if not just as good for 2015: 


  1.  Film: Goodnight Mommy (January – Austria)

Young twin brothers living in the countryside with their mother wait for her return. As she returns home, she is bandaged from extensive cosmetic surgery and nothing is the same as it was before.

In leiu of a "Best of 2014" list, I thought it beneficial a list of upcoming 2015 movies/television and books are similar in vein or the books the film/series is based on to either hold you over until the release or fulfill that need for more of the same. 


1.Film: Fear Clinic (January)

I’ll give it to del Toro and Hogan this week. Opening episode four “It’s Not for Everyone” with the dissection of the plane captain was disgusting, fascinating, and an expository change of pace. The show’s “monster” aspects – and their obvious del Toro signatures – keep me coming back each week. The attention to detail of what we learn during the dissection, and to the stinger especially, is impressive.

Author Craig Chenery has released a new reference guide to zombie flicks with a special eye on their special effects and gore! With this sub-genre going super nova over the last few years, I'm positive Craig covers at least a few zombie flicks you haven't heard yet!

From the cover blurb:

Desmond Reddick from the Dread Media podcast joins Casey in a little discussion of Joe Hill's "Horns"!

This past weekend I sent my latest short story off for submission, so I felt it was time to take a day or two off from writing! As I’m often wont to do in such times, I turned to the book shelf and picked up something to read. After all, what better way to develop your craft than to see how other authors do it? This week, the book that grabbed my attention was “Depraved” by Bryan Smith.

Occasionally, I like to read a gook book. And sometimes, I need something more in depth than scratch n' sniff erotica. So when my friend and author TW Brown from May December Publishing sent me a copy of his new book, Dead: The Ugly Beginning, I had no qualms laying down and giving it a good read.

Brian Keene is one of the hardest working authors in the horror fiction genre. Today he makes himself even cooler by announcing the relaunch of "Books for Troops".
