So, you wanna be a horror writer? Perfect timing. Prolific, award winning author Tim Waggoner has penned the essential guide to writing horror. Tim sits down with the Monster Men to discuss his latest book, WRITING IN THE DARK. When a Bram Stoker award winner and acclaimed creative writing professor gives you all the tools you need, you listen and get ready to fill your toolbox!
Tim’s also written many movie and television tie-in novels and we dig deeper into that unique world. His articles on writing have appeared in Writer’s Digest, Writer’s Journal, and Writer’s Workshop of Horror. Oh, and we naturally talk about horror movies and what makes us all children of the night. You can check out his books from Flame Tree Press (THE FOREVER HOUSE and THEY KILL), his tie-in novels and explorations into horror and fantasy over at that little start-up company, Amazon.

Fins to the left! Fins to the right! Just in time for Sharnado 5: Global Swarming, the Monster Men present a look back at some of the best and worst shark movies through the years. Naturally, we start with JAWS, the crown jewel, or crown fin of shark movies, and from there we cover such classics as Deep Blue Sea, Bait, Mako, Blue Water, White Death, Two-Headed Shark attack and more.
Plus, we are happy to announce that we have launched FINAL GUYS, a new podcast available on iTunes and our website. We have joined forces with our friend Jason Brant from the So Bad It’s Good show and Drinking with Jason. Each week we discuss a featured movie, generally horror, but we also cover superhero movies, sci-fi and other genre favorites. Please check it out and spread the word.
Surfs up! On this episode of Monster Men we take a dip with the lovely Blake Lively and her new shark movie, The Shallows. But we don’t stop there. We are reviewing a bunch of horror movies available on VOD including another aquatic thril
ler called Killer Mermaid. We also discuss the dark paranormal flick, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR, the gory and gooey bug-fest, BITE and THE INVITATION, which was one of our favorites of the year so far.
