Cry Little Sister

Published April 17, 2017 by Shadow Girl

*from HorrorFreak News:

[Cry Little Sister] is a must-watch, epic horror mashup, one that seamlessly edits over 200 genre favorites into 5 absolutely thrilling minutes that left me breathless! The video is set to a heavily electronic remix of Cry Little Sister from The Lost Boys soundtrack and includes samples of iconic horror quotes that complement the lyrics perfectly. What’s more, this skillful audio/visual collage is clearly organized into chapters: Werewolves, zombies, slashers, and more.”

♫♪♫♪ Cry, little sister (Thou shall not fall) ♪♫♪♫
♪♫♪♫ Come to your brother (Thou shall not die) ♫♪♫♪
♫♪♫♪ Unchain me, sister (Thou shall not fear) ♪♫♪♫
♪♫♪♫ Love is with your brother (Thou shall not kill) ♫♪♫♪

ISO a few good madmen…

I originally asked @screamfix if I could share this post here because I think it’s a legit, no-bullshit offer that will be a win/win for everyone. Plus, I know a handful of BBB readers who will want to jump on this immediately. 

But, there IS another reason…

I want to shine the spotlight on Dön & Donna Harrison, and The screamfix Horror Community for a minute, and I really hope that everyone will check them out. I believe that screamfix and Shadow Girl started out with a similar intent – to SUPPORT/PROMOTE INDIE HORROR! Or, as screamfix so eloquently puts it –

“Promoting creators of independent horror by feeding rabid horror fans”

You gotta give it up for Oscar Wilde-like wordplay that good! 

This is the point where I would usually start detailing all the awesome, but not this time. I don’t need to. Check them out. I’ll be surprised if you tell me that you disagree. I’ll be rockin’ my screamfix Horror Community badge here on BBB, while I think of ideas, stuff, and things – hopefully there will be a Horror Network badge to keep it company soon.

Support & promote independent horror, dark fiction, and sci-fi in all their various forms: movies, books, poems, comics, artwork, music, games, fashion, etc.  Write a review. Share a link. Update your status. Tweet the deets. Tell a friend. Call your mom. Shout it from the rooftops!

Celebrate EASTER with The Rabbit Man, and Duncan Ralston!

Published April 14, 2017 by Shadow Girl

How far would you go for revenge?

When a six-year-old girl is abused and left for dead by a pedophile known only as the “Rabbit Man” due to the claw marks left on her body, police follow every lead but reach only dead ends.

Hungry for justice, her grieving father abandons wife and child on a harrowing journey deep undercover into Miami’s sex offender colony under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. His purpose is simple: to find the “Rabbit Man” among them, and put him in the ground.

Months later, with no one to trust and the pedophiles he lives among growing suspicious of his actions, he learns nothing is simple where the monsters live.

Imagine sitting down to a meal consisting of all your favorite foods.  WAIT! Let’s make this even more fun and pretend it’s your last meal before your execution – (yay)!

    
At first glance, my table would make most people chuckle because my favorite foods do not complement each other well, or at all. (I’m a grown ass woman and can have ice cream and Twinkies for dinner if I want to!).

My book shelf mirrors my dinner table / last meal.
Yes… I’m all about the extreme horror. Give me a story filled with buckets of gore, sprinkled with very wrong humor, and of course a gratuitous titty (or three) thrown in, and I’m in a very happy place.
BUT… I love ALL flavors of horror. Man cannot live on ice cream alone! Nor can I live on the extreme alone. Plus, [IMHO] there are only a handful of authors who can pull if off successfully – (for MY tastes).

Why the hell am I talking about this?  I’m so glad you asked!

REVENGE is a dish best served cold.

Dunc has proven to be quite the ‘master chef’.
Reread my review of GRISTLE & BONE – I think it was my first book by Duncan Ralston, and I didn’t know him then. I was floored by the stories in that collection by an author who was unknown to me at the time, and to this day I still go through a moment of mourning when I finish one of his books, not wanting it to come to an end. If you’ve read WOOM then you know he is one of the aforementioned authors who can pull off the extreme without losing the story.

WHERE THE MONSTERS LIVE is NOT an extreme horror story, but I want you to have a little ‘heads up’. It’s not super graphic, but it will sucker punch you right in the feels. It will disturb you a bit, and up the level if you have a child of your own.
I didn’t realize I was crying until The Dark Defender woke up to ask me what was wrong, and I had tears streaming down my cheeks.

I got a sinking feeling at one point, because I thought I knew exactly how this story was going to end (we’ll talk about it once you finish). That wouldn’t have made it a suck story – but I’m happy that it didn’t go for the ‘ironic twist’, and I’m very satisfied with how it’s wrapped up – and there could be a little wiggle room JIC case the story isn’t done with us yet.

 I don’t think I need to say this, but for the record –
⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆  5/5 STARS!!  ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆

Before we wrap this up, please allow me one more moment of inappropriate, and probably unjustified humor here… I cannot remember when or why this popped in my head while reading, but it did, and now it’s going to get stuck in your head, too.  #earrape #psychodad

Be sure to grab the EASTER EGGS AND BUNNY BOILERS horror anthology before Sunday!

YAY!! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eternal Sunshine of the Mutant Mind

Published April 8, 2017 by Shadow Girl

I saw this quote on Instagram, and became immediately obsessed.
 It’s Joel & Clementine
 It’s Mickey & Mallory
 It’s the new mutant romance novel from Kevin Strange. 

“Cult horror filmmaker Brian Sully has isolated himself to a simple life on the Oregon coast after being publicly shamed by the lead actress of his most recent B-Movie monster flick for sending her pictures of his dick. Brian’s years of isolation have left him on the brink of suicide. But after his best friend and producer books him at a 20th anniversary horror festival honoring their first feature film, Brian Sully’s life is about to change. Is true love real? What if you fell in love with something not quite… Human? Would you pursue it? Would you let anything stop you? Even death?  I DIED IN A BED OF ROSES  is Kevin Strange’s first ever crack at the paranormal romance genre. But if you’re expecting a mushy love story, well, you don’t know Kevin Strange!”

I’ve always loved the eye-catching book covers put out by Kev, (and some of the old SHB gang), but the cover for  I DIED IN A BED OF ROSES  is gorgeous. (You gotta love that red hair!) The cover-art is by ‘kinkmaster’ William Skaar, (the creator of Carnigor). Be sure to check out his website!
Do I HAVE to say that (like most of the things I post) his work, and site, is 18+?  (♫ ♪ Ass n titties, ass ass n titties ♪ ♫)


I haven’t read IDIABOR yet, but I plan on it – very soon. BOLO for the review!
For you #StrangeHeads out there who are already bouncing in your seats chanting “gimmie gimmie gimmie”I DIED IN A BED OF ROSES  is available now – visit one of the following sites, and grab your copy today!  Kevin The Strange Fiction, Amazon, IndieBound, FictionDBGoodreadsDeals

22 Moments Book Lovers Know All Too Well

The struggle is real!

Junkies Literarios

Because the struggle is real…

By @TheLiteraryMomo

1. When you find yourself at a crossroads.

2. But then you realize, It’s a brand new book, and you’re reading it for the first time.

3. So instead, you take on the guilty pleasure of book sniffing.

4. And suddenly you remember… you haven’t taken off the price label!

rage-guy-meme-new-book-rage

5. And now you’re good to go, but you can’t find a comfortable enough position for reading.

6. When you finally find one, it’s in bed and this happens.

7. So you get really into the story and notice the new protagonist/love interest is a total dreamboat.

8. And then you feel so in sync with the author that you catch on the plot twists before they happen.

9. And all you want to do is finish the book that you start neglecting other responsibilities.

10. And everyone just keeps interrupting you…

No Sugar, No Spice, Nothing Nice

Published February 10, 2017 by Shadow Girl

2017 marks the 8th Annual
Women in Horror Month!

wihm8-logo-nogrrl-black-xl

This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as the horror genre should be.

Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.

WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound, The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. This database—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base—actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.

The Dark Defender found his kryptonite ~ unfortunately the doctors can’t seem to identify it, or fix it.

They have, however, extended their list of things that it is NOT.

I still don’t like to use the word coma, so keep him in your thoughts while he’s napping.
