The Monkey Is In.

So be prepared. Bring a banana.

I'm a writer of horror and dark fiction. I've been doing this since 1999 and believe me when I say, it's cheaper than therapy and safer for the world at large.

This is where I will archive links for my reviews/articles so my main pages can be used for the current year and look all pretty and shit.

I did a quick little pod short review of The Boy. It was a good one. 


Enjoy this double dose of terribleness for Cinema Head Cheese: Hellinger and Holy Terror


My offering to Rare Horror: Cockney Vs Zombies. A lot of fun, very entertaining, and funny!  


My first review for 2016 is of the animated film, Wrinkles, for Cinema Head Cheese. It was pretty brilliant.

My latest review for Cinema Head Cheese. It's a two-fer! It's not horror, which isn't necessarily bad but I couldn't understand what any of them were saying!


Did another pod short for Cinema Head Cheese. My review of Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. I've got two words for you. So. Boring.                     




I've recently reviewed a book written by my friends, David Hayes and Kevin Moyers, called Keeping Molly. It's a nice spin on the zombie trope and had me alternately in tears and very very angry. I posted it over at Goodreads so why not take a peek?



Another article for Slack Jaw Punks: my list of Top 10 Sexiest Heroes/Villains.


I wrote my first of (hopefully) many pieces for Slack Jaw Punks. A list of 5 horror movies I like to watch at Halloween. Not a complete list, naturally, but I do love these!

My newest review for Cinema Head Cheese: The Midnight Game. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought.


My latest review for Cinema Head Cheese: The Quiet Ones. Not the best movie but certainly no the worst either.
