Creep, Unfriended and More

0

On this episode of Monster Men we review three horror movies and a horror podcast. Two of the movies are now available on Netflix, CREEP and THE LAST DAYS ON MARS. Both are worth a look. You have to see CREEP to believe it. It’s odd, weird and entertaining… in a creepy way. We also review the social media-centric “found footage” movie, UNFRIENDED.

We also give a shout out to Bloody Good Horror, one of our favorite horror podcasts.

Sometimes, the dead are best left in peace.

Jessica Backman has been called to help a strange family living on a haunted island in Charleston Harbor. Ormsby Island was the site of a brutal massacre two decades ago, and now the mysterious Harper family needs someone to exorcise the ghosts that still call it home. The phantoms of over one hundred children cannot rest.

But something far more insidious is living on the island. When the living and the dead guard their true intentions, how can Jessica discover just what sort of evil lurks on Ormsby Island? And why is Jessica the only one who can plumb its dark depths?

Exorcist road

Whoa! I just finished reading Jonathan Janz’s latest book, a novella called EXORCIST ROAD. If you want a book that will scare the living daylights out of you this #Horrortober, this is the one to do it. A possessed boy may also be a maniac known as The Sweet Sixteen Killer. The addition of the serial killer mystery thrown into the wild mix of a night battling demonic forces makes this one of Janz’s best. Serioulsy, download this to your e-reader now. You can thank me later.
