HORROR 2020


HORROR 2020 – Another installment in my annual list of highly anticipated horror flicks, to give you chills and thrills, in the first year of the new 20s. John Krasinski, Jordan Peele, James Wan and Guillermo del Toro all make repeat appearances on my list.

REVIEW OF VIVIFIED BY JASON


Review of Vivified by jason – “An intriguing short story, that takes an interesting look at the old question of, which is more important career or family. This gripping read puts into startling focus the issues faced when you put career before family, without beating you over the head.”
