Forced Rhyme Leaving the Station

Posted on April 10, 2018 at 3:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Forced Rhyme, It can mainly be found in poetry and in song lyrics. It’s when a poet/songwriter rhymes a word with another but the word seems contrived, forced and has little to do with what the poem/song is about or doesn’t connect to the sentence or word. Is forced rhyme bad? In my opinion yes, it means your not all that creative or clever enough to come up with words to fit what your writing and it makes you look amateurish, unless of course you ar...

The Flaw in the movie Psycho(1960)

Posted on April 2, 2018 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Psycho, it is regarded as one of the best and most iconic horror and suspense movies of all time. It’s director Alfred Hitchcock is by far one of the best directors of all time. Many will agree and I too agree with this notion. Psycho is a great film and was quite controversial during it’s time for it’s sexual references, violence and ending subject matter. However despite all these things I think that Psycho stands the test of time and is sti...

The Reconstruction Era, it was a time period between 1863(or 1865 which ever you prefer) to 1877 in which the United States attempted to recover following several issues including the Civil War, slavery and the transition of states back into the union.

Whether it was slavery, recovering from...

Posted on March 12, 2018 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Who is the best poet of all time? Well the answer may differ depending on who you ask. There have been so many tremendous poets in history and the best thing of all is that they are still being talked about and read today. While many people have their own opinion on who the best poet is I have devised my own list. Here are my top ten best poets.

Poetry's Hard To Sell

Posted on March 12, 2018 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Poetry, it’s sweet simplicity and originality is a writing form that people have been writing in for centuries. Poetry however is a genre that many either love or hate, some just love reading about the rhyme, the powerful words while others find it dreadful and just utterly boring. Back in the day poetry had a strong following and we still read or at least know of certain poems or quotes that have stood the test of time. Poetry today is not as popular, tak...

Horror in the Real World

Posted on February 26, 2018 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Serial Killers are probably the most clear evidence of real horror. People without a conscience or shred of remorse or human decency. Yet while they are on the top of the real life horror pyramid who and what makes up the rest? Think about the question and I’m sure you can come up with a few ideas. Current events, whether your reading it right now there’s some known violence going on in the world, there will be further violence in the future and that...

Horror Poems by Non Horror Poets

Posted on February 26, 2018 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

When we think horror poetry we think of Edgar Allan Poe and perhaps even his most infamous poem, The Raven. We think of all his other poetic horror verses and think no one else can eclipse this. However aside from Poe who else write horror poetry? Well aside from Poe and myself I cannot definitively think of someone else that comes to mind that could be considered a horror poet. Sure there’s A Season in Hell by Arthur Rimbaud but that he was a one hit wond...

The Horror of Politics

Posted on February 26, 2018 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Politics, a topic that you either think you know, actually like and enjoy making an opinion about, or have no interest in whatsoever and couldn’t care less about. If your like me you fall under the third category but given our new president lots of people such as myself who have no business talking politics are talking about it and rightfully so. Now more than ever there is clear evidence that there’s horror in politics, let me rephrase that politics...

From Booming to Ghost Town

Posted on February 19, 2018 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Ghost Towns, you know of them or even know of one, heck you may even live in one yourself but what exactly is a ghost town? Sure, it could be a town inhabited by ghosts but that’s not what I’m talking about here, although the tv show Ghost Wars does a good job of this. In this case a ghost town is a town, usually a small one that gets destroyed, taken over, or in most cases the people leave out of their own free will or they are driven out. But why? ...

The Difference between Macabre & Gothic

Macabre and gothic, when it comes to the horror world these are two words you tend to see associated with the genre.

It is important to see the two differences so t...

If Poe Lived in This Era

Edgar Allan Poe, you’ve likely heard of him and whether you’re a fan of his work or not you cannot dent the impact he has left on the horror, short story and poetry culture. However not many people are aware that Poe was not all that popular in his day, in fact his writing was highly and publicly criticized and he was a bit of an outcast. He tried and tried day in and day out to get his works published and sometimes even that was not all that easy to...

1992's Dracula: Love Story or Horror?

Posted on October 25, 2017 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s been a while since I’ve seen the 1992 film of Dracula portrayed by Gary Oldman. As I was browsing images of the movie on Pinterest two thoughts crossed my mind; is the movie truly a horror of the classic or an infused love story? My second question is why in the heck does Dracula look the way he does in true form? Whose idea was that? These two questions may not pose a concern for most but I have been scratching my head over them and have some t...
