Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity, and Now Hollow and The Bay

And so the time has come again for a horror "documentary" based on "found footage". I have been a fan of these "real" fake flicks since the Blair Witch Project hit the theaters, but over the years, I've grown tired of film after film of so-called documentaries. Don't even get me started on The Last Exorcism. Patrick Fabian, who held the lead role in that flick should've quit with Saved by the Bell: The College Years. 

The horror "documentary" repeats are becoming nearly as bad as the regurgitation of shows like Jersey Shore. Enough is enough already. It's to the point that directors I used to like, such as Barry Levinson are getting into the mix (he's pushing out The Bay -- see trailer below to get a taste of what I'm going through). I'm not even excited about Paranormal Activity 4. However, the newest documentary horror spoof, Hollow, has piqued my interest because I have a strange fascination with trees. In fact, there's an old '80s movie about a witch who tries to steal a baby and sacrifice the child to this tree that is alive. Can't remember the name of the flick for the death of me but it was brutal stuff. So, I'll give Hollow a go. Hope it doesn't disappoint.

I Had Another Nightmare...

And it was wonderful. I died in it of course; most times, I do. But it always makes for a wonderful story. In fact, I don't think I ever mentioned that Long, Cold Winter came out of a nightmare I had while staying at a lodge somewhere in the eastern United States. I will not, however, reveal which lodge, but I will say I just heard that a Hollywood film company is making a B-film at the very same lodge this year. Urrrggg, Long, Cold Winter should've been turned into a film. If so, I would've revealed the location, ;)

Anyways, my latest nightmare isn't a new nightmare at all, as I've already been loosely taking notes for a similar book. It seems my nightmares like to influence one another. Let's just say some childhood friends come back to haunt you. I need not say more because this book is about three away from making it to press and I don't want another author stealing my morbid ideas. Though I've been told my ideas so far are so sick and twisted that another author wouldn't approach a horror story like I do anyways. To be fair, I've also been accused of being tongue-in-cheek, and every once in awhile, predicatable but appaling. Aren't we all? This comment made me think about my fans. It seems as a new author, I'm so far utterly loved or totally hated by my readers.... I'll take both, because it tells me I'm doing my job. 

All right friends, time for a nap. Hope it scares me to death.

And So Begins the Long, Cold Winter

Today marks the official launch of horror fiction writer Drusilla Winters' second book, Long, Cold Winter, which is the continuation of her unconventional horror trilogy entitled Moment of Death. In Long, Cold Winter, Drusilla paints a more twisted tale than her first book, Flight 666, as a small group of friends opt for a weekend getaway in a secluded hilltop lodge. But as the days unfold, and the other residents disappear, a variety of bizarre and twisted, paranormal events shape their future as the group fights to escape and survive the onslaught of unknown forces that are seemingly under the control of a sadistic doctor bent on releasing their deepest, darkest nightmares.

If you are a true lover of horror, this book is for you. Be forewarned: DO NOT read this book at night if you're all alone!
