31 Nightmares 2018: The 3rd

A few months back, I was listening to a horror podcast that was talking about upcoming movies. It was then that Hellfest flew right into my radar.

Hellfest is a trip down Memory Lane to the slasher films of the 80s and 90s that ruled so many of our childhoods. There’s a modern spin and a sense of originality to be noted, though that sets it apart from many others that have attempted this.

The setting is one thing that catches my eye that I’ve only seen done twice before and one of those times it was satirical—an amusement park. What a wonderful place for a horror flick. In the sub-genre of slasher, this is certainly worth a second look.

Just peek at some of the forces involved and you’ll see why it’s so different; why it’s such a breath of fresh air.

Go see it! Perfect October movie!

31 Nightmares 2016: The 10th

Vines
You’ve heard me speak of Grayson here on CardCastles before. In fact, his work has been highlighted here enough times that it can be found within the archives. If you didn’t know of his extensive list of gifts within the horror genre, today with the blessing of his beautiful wife Ra, I get to show them to you.

Masters of Horror

As you know this year’s 31 Nightmares has been dedicated to him along with Wes. Soon you’ll see why I think he is just as worthy to hold this place with Wes—someone you all know I respected and admired deeply.

Many may not know Grayson had a background in film. Those gifts and tips and tricks clearly didn’t disappear through the years as he kept them alive through his writing within the genre.

Here is a short Grayson made a few years back to highlight his short story (one of my favorites) The Eater.

The Eater, like many of the works here this October, was inspired by a nightmare. Something Wes believed very heavily in doing was recording his dreams and nightmares. Our friend knew of this trick and knew how to spin it into a sort of horrific fairy tale.

Grayson also produced the eerily wonderful soundtrack to this short.

Friend, you are deeply missed.
