Featured New Horror Release for November 2nd, 2017:

My Friend Dahmer

Movie cover for My Friend Dahmer

Before Jeffrey Dahmer became a notorious serial killer, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Derf Backderf, this is the true, haunting story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school.

Starring:  Ross LynchAlex WolffAnne Heche

Note: I’m not entirely sure what I think about this. I mean, dude chopped people up and ate them. The “he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in” and “true, haunting story” both make me think that they’re going to try to make me feel sympathy for Dahmer. Sorry, but I have no interest in feeling sorry for someone who chopped people up and ATE them.

Book cover for Weaponized

Weaponized – Zac Thompson – October 31st, 2017

Truog Island is a desolate place where sexual activity is outlawed. There lives Trip Yash, bored out of his mind. That was until he met Cron. After a night of passion, Cron disappears taking Trip’s virginity with him. A few days later, Trip develops a rash on his hand that eventually blooms into a gun made from his own flesh.

It’s not long before Trip becomes a living weapon locked in a battle against an ancient virus that threatens to ruin his island home. As his body continues to change, terrifying forces emerge with the power to weaponize the dead.

For fans of Clive Barker and David Cronenberg, Weaponized is a nerve-shattering exploration of sexual identity and people’s strange relationship with tools of death. It is a Kafka-esque horror take on sexual orientation and sexually transmitted infections, and how we villainize those who are different.

  1. Yeah, when I first seen the trailer for the Dahmer one, I was like WTF why are they trying to make me feel sorry for a killer. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! I have read books about this sick man and yes he had a bad life but he ate people and he even said if they let him out of jail he would do it again so um your not going to make me feel anything for this man and I probably won’t even be watching it.

    I do want to see Boo 2! 🙂 I really like these post.

  2. “Note: I’m not entirely sure what I think about this. I mean, dude chopped people up and ate them.

    Have you no heart at all, Lilyn! lol, I have to say I felt the exact same thing when I read that promo. Feels like they’re trying to make him a sympathetic character. Nope, not gonna happen.
