The Cursed Man Meets The Monster Men: Keith Rommel Interview

0

The Monster Men are very happy to present an interview with author Keith Rommel. This was one of our favorite episodes we have ever recorded. We are sure you’re going to enjoy it.

Keith is the author of THE CURSED MAN, an incredibly original, creepy and entertaining book that is also currently in production as a movie. It’s a great read. This, along with his other books, THE LURKING MAN and the upcoming THE SINFUL MAN, are part of his Thanatology Series. The Encyclopedia Britannica defines Thanatology as “the description or study of death and dying and the psychological mechanisms of dealing with them.” That should set the stage for you.

Here’s the description for THE CURSED MAN:

 Alister Kunkle believes death is in love with him.  A simple smile from friend or stranger is all it takes to encourage death to kill.

 With his family deceased and a path of destruction behind him, Alister sits inside a mental institution, sworn to silence and separated from the rest of the world, haunted by his inability to escape death’s preferential treatment.

 But when a beautiful psychologist arrives at the institution and starts offering him care, Alister braces himself for more killings.  When none follow, he tries to figure out whether he truly is insane or if death has finally come to him in the form of a woman.

Keith is a fantastic author and a person to keep your eye on. His work is turning a lot of heads and is being described as being in the spirit of Stephen King. High praise indeed.

Keith is also great guy and has absolutely cemented his place as a Monster Man. As you watch this interview, you can’t help but like him. He’s friendly, entertaining and quite candid. We learned the stories behind his books as well as what it’s like to have one of your novels made into a film. It is fascinating. We also partake in some great horror movie and TV talk, as is par for the course on the Monster Men video podcast.

Monster Hunting with Lyle Blackburn

1

This episode of Monster Men is such a big event, we had to present it in two parts. This time out we interview renowned monster hunter Lyle Blackburn, author of THE BEAST OF BOGGY CREEK and LIZARD MAN. His books are must reads for fans of cryptozoology, urban legends and monsters.

Lyle Blackburn Part 1: The Lizard Man

Lyle Blackburn Part 2: The Beast of Boggy Creek

In part one of our interview we focus on the Lizard Man, the mysterious monster of Bishopville, NC. Lyle investigated this case firsthand and his stories and accounts from actual witnesses will astound you. He’s got every angle covered and his book is fascinating.

In part two of our interview, we discuss Lyle’s true passion, the legendary Fouke Monster of Boggy Creek. Ever since Lyle saw the movie “The Legend of Boggy Creek” as a kid, he has been fascinated by this Bigfoot-like creature that lurked the very swamps near where his family would vacation. Now Lyle is a leading authority on this topic and his book, THE BEAST OF BOGGY CREEK, is the definitive source on the subject.

Naturally, it would not be an episode of Monster Men if we didn’t do a little movie and TV talk. We also discuss some of Lyle’s favorite horror movies, monsters and TV shows and find we have a lot in common with him. We also find out what it’s like to hang out with the guys from FINDING BIGFOOT.

We are sure you’re going to love this episode. We sure did. After the show, be sure to check out Lyle’s books. For all things Lyle Blackburn, you can visit his website at www.lyleblackburn.com

To celebrate the release of Hunter Shea’s new ghostly novella, we dedicate this episode of Monster Men to THE WAITING. Based on true events, Hunter has spun a masterpiece that is sure to keep you up at night with the lights on.

Here’s the description…

Clinging to life, haunted by the dead. 

Newlywed Cassandra Pagano lies in a state between life and death, her body fed and preserved by the machines at her side. While she struggles, unaware of the world around her, someone waits—a boy. A phantom that appears solid, real, alive. Cassandra’s husband, Brian, sees him in the house, by her bedside, running down darkened hallways. The boy walks without sound, whispers words that can’t be deciphered. 

Terror and tension are driving Brian to the breaking point. Why is the boy there, and what does he want with Cassandra…and her fading soul?
