“From a filmmaker’s perspective, these stories are truly cinematic, with compelling plots and well-drawn characters … It’s anthologies like these that will inspire a new generation of storytellers and keep the current ones working overtime to move and entertain.” From the Foreword by Patrick Rea, director of the Lionsgate Film, Nailbiter.

National Novel Writing Month? What the hell? I had a nice, simple month of work, study and testing the concepts of why the word “Catapult” begins with “Cat.” I sit back and ponder my mellow month when I hear the words, “If you write they will shut the hell up.”

So, for a family day, Hollie, Josh, and I went to see Rob Zombie’s LORDS OF SALEM (yeah, I know – weird family). This movie was subtle and definitely not what I expected from a splatterporn director. The surprise was well-received. Now on to the review….
